“A very unusual hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

Our family stayd for a few days in this property and found it very interesting. Its a huge complex wich hosts many weddings, birthday and other kind of parties in this area, and also has many rooms to host some of the guests that come to this kind of party. The region is strategic to visit the vesuvio area and its archeologic sites, and also to visit sorrento and the amalfi coast. The obly problem is that the neighboorhood is a little odd... Although the propeety is very sumptuous... The staff is very friendly but sometimes a bit noisy mainly the maids who stary cleaning the rooms early and disturbs a little the guests who want to rest a little later.

When we drove down the long palm lined driveway we thought the price we had been quoted for our room must be a mistake, and it would be far more expensive. But no, for a low to moderate price we had a wonderful rococo room, plastered ceilings and wall trims, chandelier light fitting, gold plated fittings in the bathroom, luxurious towels, just amazing. Big buffet breakfast with plenty of fresh fruit, and cooked eggs as well as the usual cakes etc. There are fountains, a swimming pool, lots of outdoor area, and lots of parking - even a helipad! The staff were attentive and Danilo at the front desk gave us great tips for our driving holiday on the Amalfi coast. Great value, an old hotel and showing some signs of wear, but I would strongly recommend.

We stayed 2 nights with our kids and we were all enjoying our stay very much. Not only the children were fascinated by the castle-like hotel! We were indeed treated according to the hotel's motto: like royals, and reception front man Danilo was extraordinarily service minded! The whole staff, from reception to cleaning staff and waiters were very professional and likable. The hotel is situated in a small and a bit run down village that is in large contrast to the hotel. This can feel problematic but we decided to enjoy ourselves. We had two very nice dinners at the hotel and it is good that the restaurant has such a variety and good menu since the village itself cannot offer much restaurants as alternatives. We stayed at the hotel because we wanted to visit Pompeii and for this it is perfectly located. It's location also offers magnificent views of Vesuvius from the balconies. At the time of our stay there were 2 weddings (Saturday) and one birthday party (Sunday). This only added to the charm for us but during dinner the volume from the wedding parties was a bit loud and could be disturbing for someone else, not for us with children... The parties did not interfere with us swimming in the middle of it all! The price of accommodation and food were comparable to those we experienced at much less fancy hotels and restaurants in Rome.

This hotel is classified as a 5 star hotel but schild be a 3 star. The room are very small and dark and decorated as in the fifties. The staff has NOT interested, the general rooms are awful decorated and the outside of the hotel during the night is more a disneyhotel, with all kind of colouring. The pool area is terrible with no facilities to relax at all. The breakfast area is very strange and the service and food below level. Coffee is really bad.

This seems to be a hotel for Italian people to marry and celebrate in an over-decorated environment. So, if you are looking for such a barbie like hotel, your fine, otherwise choose something else. Don't be misleads by the cheap price. I this case it's really NO value for LOW money.
