We returned for our second visit this year and yet again had a lovely holiday. The hotel is very good and the staff are all lovely and go out of their way to make sure everyone is happy and catered for. Special mention to the singing Mario as well as reception staff, Aldo, Maria and Mario and breakfast room Michelle.

We would also recommend the hotel driver Francesco who is calm and safe amongst the chaos of the general Italian driving :-) We used him to pick us up from the airport which takes away the stress of the hours drive to the hotel. We also hired him for the day for a tour of the Amalfi Drive, including, Positano, Amalfi and the stunning Ravello, he is very informative and helpful and was well worth the expense.

The hotel are also very good and helpful with recommending local restaurants and are quite happy to be told if you find any recommendations not so good.

Our only issue is with the hotel wireless coverage, with the huge increase in the number of wirelessly connected devices that the average family now carries the hotel system simply cant cope with the demand. They did assure me they would be sorting it out although they do seem to struggle to find good IT support and vendors so if you need to do any amount of work on the internet its worth having an alternative in case.

We hope to go back next year and are already missing the sunshine, pool and relaxed atmosphere.

...so much we have planned our wedding here next August. The hotel is centrally located. The staff are fantastic. Great air conditioning, uk plug socket in the room. A proper hairdryer (so don't bother bringing one). All the other reviews are genuine this is truly a great hotel. They also own a villa which is a bit further up the coast which is absolutely stunning! This is where we have planned our wedding reception, I just can't wait to share with my family and friends. Roll on 2013 when we can go back.

Where can I begin to tell you how amazing this place was?

My husband and I stayed the Antiche Mura for our honeymoon, and on arrival the staff took our bags to the room, and gave us a very warm wlecome.
We walked through a lovely lemon and orange tree garden with the swimming pool outside, and with a gorgeous view of an old fort in the gorge below. If you look closely in the sun and the bushes you might see the wild geckos sunning themsleves on the paths and rocks.
Our room was clean, with subtle Italian style and it was very comfortable. We had air conditioning in the room and a tv so we could still watch the olympics on the BBC News channel. The cleaners would come in the morning to make the beds and clean, and then come back in the evening for a turn down service.
There was a large choice at beakfast time of whatever you could wish for, and again you were welcomed with a huge smile and a "good morning"
All of the staff we met were frendly and very helpful to reccommend restaurants and they became like family before we left.
The Hotel it's self is near the centre so you do not have far to walk to the pubs, shops and restaurants.
Sorrento was a lovely town with a lot more to offer then you might think, with a very good train service straight to Pompeii. If you want somewhere to relax by the pool with a cocktail and just forget the worries and weather back wherever you come from, then this is the place for you. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: As the hotel is on a slight hill, the breakfast dining room and pool are on the second floor. The ho...

You really couldn't get a better location in Sorrento and the staff were all helpful and cheerful, they even have a singing waiter who worked at the pool bar! The pool and hotel were all clean and the lemons falling from the trees around the pool made perfect play balls in the pool for the children.

This hotel is just off the main streets in the heart of Sorrento so you do not need to walk far to find bars, restaurants, shops and the sea front.

On our arrival the staff took our bags out of our hire car and parked it for us in their garage. Upon entering the hotel it is elegantly decorated and feels grand when you enter the lobby.

The staff are attentive and friendly, dealing with your every need and always saying hello and pro-actively asking if you need anything.

The rooms are traditionally decorated, very clean, and towels are refreshed twice a day. The pool area is tranquil and quiet and the bartender often breaks into song whilst going about his work ;0).

Breakfast runs until 10:30 - which is later than usual, which we loved whilst on holiday.

We loved this hotel and would recommend it to any one. It deserves it's 5 star rating on trip advisor.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony on the side of the hotel the views of the hillside were amazing. Also we a...

I only spend one night there so I think I missed many good breakfasts there . Really the breakfast is unique ! Verry Clean hotel with friendly staff, centrally situated only a step from Piazzo Tasso which is the main square in Sorrento. Very nice pool area surrounded by lemon and orange trees, I would love to be there when they are in bloom, I can immagine the aroma during this period. The hotel also offers trips and excursions to all the beautiful things around which may be an added advantage to people who have a longer stay there. And one more thing, I never had so much Prosecco in one day as there !

It's in the perfect location. Just one block off the main square so you don't have the noise factor but very convenient to everything Sorrento has to offer. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The breakfast was huge with options for pretty much anyone and seating inside or outside. The pool area is beautifully landscaped with citrus trees and comfy lounge chairs. The hotel has the feeling of a nice resort without being too crowded.

Tons of excellent restaurants are within very close walking distance. The Marina is a quick taxi ride or ten minute walk (to catch the hydrofoils to Napoli or Capri). The train station is less than a ten minute walk (for quick trips to Ercolano or Pompeii). The hotel also has an extensive list of tours and activities you can sign up for such as bus trips to Pompeii, Vesuvius, Ercolano, Paestum, the Amalfi coast, or day cruises to Capri and even cooking classes. You can't possibly get bored while staying in Sorrento. It's a lovely town with great food and friendly people. I can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: The rooms near the pool are perfect for anyone who wants quiet and the feeling of a small hotel, whi...
