We stayed at the Grand Royal for 9 nights in August as part of our honeymoon. We were upgraded to a junior suite and this pretty much meant a much bigger room. We had a great sea view over the pool and out into the Bay of Naples. Service on arrival was a bit surly, I commented to my hustand they weren't very friendly. However we found the waiting and bar staff to be friendly and helpful. The food we ate at the hotel was very good. One night they did forget about us and we had to wait half an hour for our starters but they were very apologetic and every other course came out very quickly. I thought the breakfast buffet was good and the bar/lunch service by the pool is good. We didn't have a problem getting sun loungers or towels - I guess you just have to be down there sharp because it is a busy hotel/pool area. Great location in Sorrento - minutes from the train station and town which is great for a wander at night. We did the boat trip to Positano and Capri and then got the train for a tour of Pompei - all worth it. The restaurants down the lanes of Sorrento are worth checking out and one in particular up the top end of the town near the Hospital - La Fenice is very good - very busy! I was happy with my stay at the Grand Royal and would recommend it as a place to stay.
