Located (literally) 10 min walk outside of Sorrento, this hotel has a stunning view, nice little swimming pool, good restaurant and nice rooms, albeit slightly tired.
The walk is easily doable, especially on the way down and there are plenty of ice cream shops to keep you going for the way back! Taxis are criminally expensive and should be avoided if you can. There is a bus (not a hotel shuttle bus), but doesn't run that regularly and we walked instead. Personally I would avoid staying in the town centre as it is very busy with vehicle and pedestrian traffic, especially at weekends.
We ate in the restaurant twice, partly because of the outstanding view, partly because of the extremely friendly staff and the partly because of the excellent food. However, we ate off an a la carte menu and I got the impression that when the hotel do half board (which I think they do a lot of the time), the food might not be so good with less variety and less ambitious options.
There were a couple of small glitches in the room, which lost its 5th star (although it was close and nearly recovered by the highly entertaining head waiter), such as only one plug socket, quite dated bathroom, but all very comfortable and not a major issue.
Wi-Fi only works in reception.
