5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2011

My wife and I stayed at Don Alfonso 1890 in October 2011 for four nights. We ate a couple of times at the hotel, as well as at the other high end (2 star Michelin) restaurants in the area. The hotel room itself was very good, with a lovely view from our balcony. The bed was comfortable, the shower worked well and the bedside lighting (often a problem in hotels) was fine. The staff were extremely pleasant - it was almost as if you were staying with friends, but friends who had a two star Michelin chef in the kitchen. The food was easily the best of the two star meals we tried in the area, most of their produce coming from their own nearby farm, and this showed. I would happily return.

Room Tip: If you can, ask for one with a view over the Gulf of Naples

This was a beautiful hotel. It is chic and the food is amazing. The best part of the whole experience was the feeling that we were part of a family. We have stayed in touch with Livia, and would love to go back!

An amazing hotel, each room is different from other, has its own unforgetable atmosfere of chick and comfort at the same time. No comment about their restaurant as it is of the highest quality, elaborated food and the best servise make you feel a VIP.

Trying to check out the restaurant today but were attacked there by vicious dogs who left my wife with a bleeding wound. Strongly advise all to avoid this restaurant at all cost! Jaap & Maria Schouten, Ottawa, Canada

We stayed here 3 days and got the package that included 3 nights stay and one dinner at the restaurant. At 1000€ I considered a very good deal considering the standards provided.

The service was very good; this is something you would expect anyway at these levels; what made it different and somehow exceptional was the family friendness of all staff; regardless if you are a returned customer or a new comers (like us) you get the same warm treatment; this applies especially to the owners, Alfonso and Livia.

The hotel is in the middle of a rather anonymous village in the middle of the Sorrentine Peninsula; the great thing about that is that gives very easy access to all areas around but it is located in the rather “less touristy” part of this region. This may be a bless in the busy holiday periods. In fact this is the rather wilder part with great drives and walks close by on the point of the Peninsula (and views of Capri).

The area is full of other very good restaurants; ask in the hotel and they will give you plenty of good suggestions; we tried “Il Buco” at Sorrento (very good) and “Ristorante Lo Scoglio” at Nerano (good but expensive for the level provided).

If I had to use one word to describe the experience here, it would be "Heaven". The rooms are beautiful, the food is incredible, the scenery is fanastic and the service is out of this world. If you get a chance to stay here, do not pass it up!
