We have stayed many times in Sorrento at another hotel but this time we decided on a change and chose La Favourita. A great choice not only for the central location but if you read other reviews on Trip advisor they are all true. The hotel is sumptuous with its white leather Chesterfield sofas and chairs. The decor is extremely tasteful and incorporates the elegance of Italian style and culture which in a new hotel has very cleverly been incorporated to create a warm and eye catching background.
Our room was very spacious with a seven foot wide bed which was extremely comfortable and a large bathroom. The room was very quiet which enabled us to have very restful sleeps. As we were not half board we ate out and the huge variety of restaurants that were close to the hotel. We did however use the hotel restaurant which was very good and reasonably priced. Breakfast we had a great choice and endless pots of coffee if required.
The pool area on the roof was very good and Paulo the pool attendant looked after us very well positioning umbrellas for us and providing fresh towels. The loungers were also very comfortable and you had stunning views over the Bay of Naples to Mount Versuvius.
The only downside about the hotel was that even though the hotel provided entertainment in the evenings very few guests used the lovely bar area. We could only put this down to the fact there was so much to do in Sorrento in the evenings. There were also a lot of American tour companies that used the hotel and they were doing a whistle stop tour of Italy staying no longer than two nights with very early morning starts.
We would definitely recommend La Favorita to our friends and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
