My wife and I stayed at this hotel from the 5th to the 12th October 2012. It is located on the cliff edge in a quieter area of Sorrento. I suspect that if there is a football match at the nearby ground it could be a little noisy for a short time. It commands excellent views over the Bay of Naples towards Vesuvius.
The hotel is well appointed and I could not find any fault with the food which I thought was excellent. Again all the staff were fine even though it was coming to the end of the season and I suspect they were a little weary and thinking of their holidays.
There was a problem with the room (219) which was kept clean and tidy but seemed to have a problem with ants. We were not the only room affected. The hotel made attempts to deal with the issue but they seemed to pop out of the woodwork for the whole week and I suspect we even retuned to ‘blighty’ with one or two in the suitcases. That said we had an excellent holiday at the hotel and I recommend the bathing platform to go for a safe swim but the cost of the drinks there will make your eyes water.
Others have commented of the small bar some 100 metres to the right of the hotel next to the football and tennis club. It is well worth frequenting as the beer and wine are cheap for Sorrento and they will make you a meal to take on the plane and all done with a smile!
