The property is really lovely, far enough from the crowds of Piazza Tasso, and my husband and I had a great room, large and stately, with unbeatable views of the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius. The physical property is breathtaking and serene, with lots of lovely gardens, and a quiet beach. Perfect for a relaxing vacation. However, the problem we had with this hotel was that it was not the most welcoming and hospitable to a gay couple. Every morning when we went to breakfast, we were pretty much ignored by the staff. Straight couples were eagerly greeted with a hearty bon giorno and promptly escorted to tables with a smile. We were ignored most days and seated ourselves. Because of this, we chose not to take any of our meals at the hotel, or spend additional euros for their special offers. In all fairness, the front desk was very helpful. The friendliest person that we encountered at the hotel was the chambermaid who always had a kind greeting for us. Due to a sense of uneasiness towards us evident in this hotel, and Sorrento in general, this may not be the most comfortable place for gay travelers.
