“Definitely worth 'returning to Sorrento' for this”
Reviewed October 7, 2011

Having stayed here for the first time in 2009 on my own, I was slightly apprehensive about returning this year with my other half. But everything was as just as good as I remembered - the views are stupendous, the service is great, the breakfasts are top notch for a 3 star hotel and the restaurant continues to be one of the best in Sorrento - although since most of the touristy restaurants in town are poor this perhaps isn't enough of a recommendation. It is a real joy to experience a genuine family run establishment in this day and age.
The minibus service into town down the windy twisty hill is first rate - don't worry about the distance from the main town - it's actually a bonus because the location is so quiet and tranquil.
The only fault, and it's pretty minor, is the lack of proper towels in the bathrooms. For some reason they are made of thin cotton - a bit like tea towels! However, having discovered this a couple of years ago, we went prepared and took a big towelling bath sheet!
All in all, a perfect base for a real taste of Sorrento.

I was blown over by the reviews and I really thought that the hotel will be helpful in trying to help me pick a good room.
I was travelling with my boyfriend for the first time and wanted to leave no stone unturned to have a perfect vacation. Accordingly I wrote a very detailed email to the manager and requested him/her to provide me with a specifically requested room. The Manager suggested that I have very "specific requests" and it would be the best if I tried some "other property in Sorrento" I was very offended by the tone of voice.
I checked the availability of rooms well in advance and at the time of my email all sea view rooms were available at the hotel but even then I was told that they will not be able to confirm a specific room. I am quite glad I am not staying at this hotel.
I have chosed Villa Monica B&B at Sorrento and I am travelling in the end of November, I hope it is good.

Room Tip: Don't bother, they will never be able to give you the room you request for. It all depends on yo...

We booked 'Il Nido' based on the reviews read here on TA, and we were not dissapointed!

Il Nido is a hotel that is beautifully nestled in the hillside above Sorrento, and offers some of the most spectacular views we have seen overlooking the Bay of Napoli and Mt Vesuvious.

We were graciously met by Dino who immediately made us feel very welcome, as did all the staff. Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean, the views from our balcony were again nothing short of stunning!

The meals were delicious and the service very attentive. We will be back the next time we are in Sorrento, and look forward to a longer stay. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

We stayed at this hotel at the end of August start of September. We had booked in for 3 nights as we were going to a wedding. Very friendly and helpful staff, excellent air conditioning and the breakfasts were really good.

You have a great choice of hot and cold and you squeeze your own orange juice (using a machine). The view fgrom the restaurant is magnificent. We did not book a room with a view, however the room was most comfotable and well equipped. The hotel also offers complimentary internet and free shuttle service that we used. Enjoy your stay there, we certainly did.

Room Tip: If you want a view make sure you book a room with a view, as we were going to be out most of the tim...

We arrived at the train station - after spending a long day travelling from Florence and stopping over in Pompeii - we called the hotel and they sent the shuttle to pick us up. Wow - we thought - great service - and it went uphill from there. The hotel is situated in the mountains above Sorrento - that's why the need for the excellent shuttle service - we had asked for a room with a view and that's exactly what we got - and what wonderful views of the islands, Naples and the sea - we spent a few nightime hours sitting on the balcomy enjoying the view and the warm breezes - so relaxing. When we arrived we decided that instead of taking the shuttle back to Sorrento to eat dinner that we would enjoy an evening meal at the hotel - good decision! Our first night's dinner was sitting on the terrace eating the most scrumptous food we had since arriving in Italy. We then decided to eat our dinner meals at this hotel - why not - when you know that the food you want is so delicious - who could ask for more. The staff were so helpful and pleasant - smiles all around - the brothers that run the hotel are very courteous and go out of their way to help you out. We would absolutely stay here again. The rooms were spotless and comfortable, the hotel lobby is very nice, clean - a good meeting place while waiting for the shuttle, and the views from the terrace while eating dinner are priceless.

Room Tip: book early and ask for a room with a view

This hotel is just wonderful. Everything was just perfect. We stayed for 6 nights and enjoyed every moment of our stay. There are too many things to write about!! Rooms were very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Our room had a balcony with a stupendous view overlooking the Bay Of Naples, Sorrento and Vesuvious - so romantic. The breakfast was excellent with hot food, ham, cheeses, toast, fruit, cereal. The best part of the breakfast was the freshly squeezed orange juice and the yummy pastries of every shape and size you could think of!!! We ate on the terrace, also overlooking the same breathtaking views. Most evenings, we also had dinner on the terrace, the hotel food was among the best we have ever had in Italy - our compliments to the chef!!
The hotel minibus offers a frequent free shuttle service to and from Sorrento Town (a 10 minute bus ride) - this was just great, you can go and enjoy the hustle and bustle of Sorrento, then total peace and quiet back at the hotel - thats what I call a holiday!!
There was a nice outdoor sun terrace with loungers and ample car parking.
Lastly I would like to comment on the outstanding welcoming service we received at Il Nido - this is a family run hotel and we were made to feel so at home here. We felt we were the only guests!! If we ever return to Sorrento, we will definitely be staying here at Il Nido!!
Special Thanks to Dino and ALL your family and staff for making our holiday in Sorrento very memorable. Grazie Mille!!!

Room Tip: request a room with a balcony - the views are wonderful

We have just returned from 5 nights at this hotel and it was fabulous. The views are to die for. The food is fantastic and the service is great. I am a travel agency Manager and have travelled all over the world but the service in this hotel tops them all.
