This hotel is rather large for our taste with the normal advantages and disadvantages that come along with that.
Traveling back and forth to town required a shuttle ride and there were long periods it was not available. Since we had a private van for touring, the distance from town really was only an issue once or twice. The shuttle ends about 11:30PM so if you want to enjoy the fabulous nightlife, you should stay right in Sorrento.
The pool is beautiful in the hotel pictures but we found it more picturesque than usable since its in the shade it was too cold to use even on the hot days of our early September visit. We also found the restaurant just okay nothing special.
The staff was very warm and friendly except for one young lady. I have no idea why she seemed so annoyed with any question we asked.
We had two rooms. One had a bathtub with shower - my advice change rooms immediately as any time you use the shower the floor floods. We spent four nights trying to avoid this and failed - there are plenty of other rooms as this is a fairly good size hotel.
While we were there, it was very quiet with mostly retirees, so we didn't have a noise problem. I would recommend this hotel if you don’t want to stay late in town and you prefer being a little out of town.
If you want to enjoy the best dining experience we had in two and one half weeks of traveling in Italy. Its here in the Sorrento area. Our driver Carlo took us to Fattoria Terranova (www.fattoriaterranova.it) It is a restaurant/cooking school and also has accommodations available. (We might try the cooking school next time) It is about 20 minutes outside of Sorrento but well worth the effort. Extraordinary experience with superb food. AMAZING.
