We loved these apartments. We went with our 2 girls 11 and 15. From the moment we arrived at the apartments in the taxi, we were impressed! Tasteful, modern design from the reception area all the way through to the apartments. We were very lucky to get a view of the sea and Mount Vesuvius which is just awe inspiring. The Vespas take a bit of ignoring when you are sitting on your balcony! It does die down at night I'm glad to say. Good air con in apartment tho we kept it off at night as too cold and windows shut as mozquitos get in so a bit stuffy by morning! TAKE MOZZIE SPRAY! The staff on the desk spoke good English and were always helpful. A nice selection of information books in the reception area to use at our leisure. Not too far a walk with swimming stuff, lilos etc. to the pool and bathing platforms at the Hotel Riviera. Though expensive for food and drinks there. We had brought a cool bag with us from England so made our own picnic and took it with us each day. Worked well with cold drinks to keep it cool! Don't pack towels. They are provided in the apartment, pool, and bathing platform. Save space in your case! We went to Pompeii and found it easy enough by train. The staff will give you directions - not far from apartment. Tickets E11 each and straight route to Pompeii. Train staff spoke English. My advise is definately take a picnic to Pompeii AND sunhat or even better umbrella/parasol for shade as you walk around. Especially for children as not much shade and unbearably hot. A walk down to the marina is very pleasant in the evening to eat. The walk back up wasn't as bad as it looked! A ferry over to Naples for the day is a nice way to go but quite pricey. We didn't take a picnic as it was easier not to and ate at MacDonalds as it was the cheapest way in a city! Restaurants a plenty in Sorrento - all with pretty much the same menu offering pizza and pasta! Not cheap. We ate in a couple of nights cooking simple meals in the tiny kitchenette. A bit tricky but we managed. The nearest and cheapest supermarket is 5 mins walk around the corner and keep going straight ahead across busy road and up the hill slightly and its there on the right. I think its called Strada. We got lilos for kids in supermarket for 2.50 each and left them there. Less in case! The holiday was lovely. Great choice of restaurants, souvenir shops, location, places of interest, views and weather. Thoroughly recommend. We need to return as much more to see - didnt see Amalfi coast or go up Vesuvius yet!
