The hotel is perched on a cliff overlooking the Basy of Naples, with views towards Vesuvius and Naples. We booked a sea view room for 2 nights. It was spacious and comfortable (although the decor looked a bit old fashioned) and the balcony with superb sea views was splendid! Service in the hotel was good on the whole and the staff were pretty friendly. The grounds of the hotel are large, beautifully tended and very attractive and restful. They run along the cliff and so there are lovely views all along (actually a garden view room would be quite good). As the hotel is accessed along via a long path, it is very quiet. Surprisingly for a Sorrento hotel, the food in the restaurant is very good indeed - better than many of the restaurants in town actually. The main disadvantage is that it is rather far from town (about 30 minutes walk) and the courtesy coach is limited.
