I don't think you could find a more beautiful hotel. The hotel is arranged such that you feel like you're one of only a few guests.
Rooms: Very large and nicely decorated. Every room had a balcony on the cliifs and a view of the Bay. Perfectly clean, lots of natural light, and plenty of fresh air (should you desire). Bathrooms were clean, spacious, and well appointed with soaps/lotions.
Dining: Breakfast was very good (included). They offer a selection of free snacks/drinks throughout the day and a pianist plays in the evening. I did not try the restaurant for lunch/dinner.
Hotel: Service was very friendly and accomodating. They've got their own private beach area that was nice, though diffiult to get to (unavoidable since the hotel - like all others in Sorrento - is on top of a cliff). The club lounge (inside) is amazingly decorated and colorful. Outside, it has a beautiful terrace to view the sea.
I did not try the spa.
The only drawbacks are that it is not in the middle of town (only a 5-10 min walk, though) and that reservations could have been easier (they required an email to request the reservation). Also, not all the rates were displayed on the website when I searched - when I called, I was offered a better rate (and then had to email them to reserve it). Strange.
