For anyone visiting Sorrento this would be very high on the list of places to stay.
The hotel is large but low set (only 6 stories from memory). We were here for 1 week on a recent trip to Italy. Check-in from the front desk staff was courteous and efficient. With an Ocean View room, they have a fabulous view over the Bay of Naples to Vesuvius. The rooms are of a good size with plenty of room for luggage. The bathroom is of good size and there is a nice balcony to sit on should you like to have a relax. Location is good, however note that it is not in the centre of town and a good walk or a 15 Euro taxi trip will be required to access the main eating/entertainment area. Concierge was excellent assisting to arrange some bookings at local restaurants on our behalf.
The bar on the lobby level is very good. The service from the wait staff is excellent and everyday there was a small selection of canapes to accompany your drinks. Comparatively within the "area" the prices in the bar was quite acceptable. The view is also very good. Below the bar is the Pool. it is large and a good place to swim, however it can get very busy and unless you are early there is difficulty in finding seating.
Breakfast and the Porter/Doorman service were the only 2 disappointing parts of our stay. The breakfast room is very large and I think that potentially when we stayed they were short staffed as the service was not up to usual Hilton standards. Porters and Doormen were generally disinterested with any requests and surprisingly were even disinterested in any gratuity for assistance that may have been provided!
Sorrento is definitely a destination for tourists. It is bustling with people and life at all hours. The Hilton Sorrento is a nice location and were we to return we would stay here again.
