We stayed for a week. The hotel is set on the hillside overlooking Sorrento and the bay of Naples. We had a sea view room with a fantastic view. The hotel is clean with good facilities. Thing which sets the hotel apart from others is the staff. We found the bar and restaurant staff to be very friendly, polite and accommodating. Then of course there is the food, all I can say is it is fantastic. We would not normally eat all week in the hotel as we like to try different restaurants. In this hotel there is no need.
If I am to be at all critical it would be to say that the swimming pool is small with insufficient sun loungers. These went quickly with people putting towels on them early (English guests mainly) the hotel should try to stop this practice! The hotel is about 10 mins buy bus from central Sorrento. The hotel proves a free service which is great. Be warned though the service stops between 12:30 and 3:15pm this means that a lot of people want to return at 3:15. The bus holds about 18 and always had to do 2 trips at 3:15 leaving people waiting for 30mins or so in the hot sun!
I would not recommend this hotel for children as there is limited facility for them, teenager and toddler alike.
If you want a lovely hotel in a great setting with wonderful staff and food then come here!
