We stayed here as a family of 4 (2 children aged 7 and 8) in August 2012. We had a "family suite" which consisted of 2 bedrooms (one double and one twin) and a bathroom off the double room. The twin room also had a dining table, chairs and kitchenette (2 electric hobs, small fridge, microwave and sink). We found this to be an excellent base for the 9 nights we spent here.
The breakfasts were good (wide selection of breads, pastries, fruit, meat, cheese etc). Our room was fairly basic (I'm not sure the twin beds would have been terribly comfortable for much heavier children) but had everything we needed. Towels were changed every day and the rooms were cleaned daily whilst we were at breakfast.
We had a terrace overlooking Vesuvius - other rooms had excellent views across Sorrento itself. The pool was smallish but delightful. We never found it to be particularly busy. The staff were very helpful when answering all our questions.
The hotel is a very easy distance into town (10 minutes to walk in, 20ish back as it is uphill!) - although the hotel is right on a busy corner we found we had no problems crossing the road and walking safely to the nearest pavement. When we needed to get to the station (to travel to Pompei or Herculaneum) we used the excellent local bus service - the nearest bus stop was about 100 metres downhill. We could have caught the bus to/from Sorrento town centre had we chosen to.
There are several local supermarkets and a good little shop just a couple of hundred metres away selling cheap bottled water.
We would definitely stay here again and would definitely recommend it to others.
