Its in Meta which can be ideal depending on what you want from your holiday but for us Sorrento would have been the ideal choice as all transfers, trips, restaurants and shops are in Sorrento. Meta has a beach and cafe, restaurant, and a few shops, train station and bus services but expect to walk. The bus service to and from Sorrento is unreliable and only runs to approx.10.20pm, taxis are expensive approx. 35 Euros from Sorrento to Meta, walking takes 45mins to an hour and they don't favour foot paths. I recommend the cafe just down from the hotel, value for money, very friendly and polite and tasty food. Any meal in Meta/Sorrento seemed to be approx. 10 Euros per person and alcoholic drink 6-7 euros but the measures are generous. Be careful when booking trips from Sorrento as they generally only include the transfer/tour in the price, admissions to sites and lunch etc...are additional.
As for the hotel, its good for a few days pit stop.
Superb view with a sea view room, spacious and clean.
Extended check out time by 1-2hrs on day of departure.
The hotel manager seemed friendly and helpful but rarely seen, all other staff barely smile, welcome or seem friendly.
The breakfast options are limited as is the hot water for shower.
It says the hotel has airport shuttle but we had to sort our own transfers.
The air con didn't work in any of the rooms.
We had ants and noise from the square out the front (sea view rooms) goes on until early hours of the morning 4.30am-5am, but quiet during the day.
No sun loungers allowed by the pool, and small pool.
