Acceptable location. Acceptable means that the hotel is (formally being not in Sorreno at all) in the valking 20 min distance from the Sorrento central area, though the way is not very pleasant.
Rooms are clean and room service is quite OK. No need to leave 1 EUR coin every morning on the bed (like in Spain opr Greece) to get the room clean in the evening.
Qiuet nights provided that you get a room going to the garden.
Positive aspects end on that.
The worst is the meals. Breakfast meals is very poor in choice, e.g. no friuts at all. The worst is coffee from their coffee machine - I could never imagine I would be able to taste this in Italy. If you would like to add hot milk (which is available only from the same machine) this is a disaster - you will get some strange grey fluid with traces of white powder.
If you have HB option, then you have an even bigger problem. Dinner is served in the neighboring Park dei Principi 5 star hotel, and for guests from La Rezidenza they have an a-la-carte menu consisting of 5 points not changing during the week. Among them for example there is "eggs with tomatoes" - our neighbors tried to order it when they learned the other ones by heart. They got 2 fried eggs, and after they asked "where are tomatoes" the plate was taken away and returen in 2 minutes with one cherry tomato on top. If you try to order wine (which you surely pay by yourself), you are proposed a simple choice "white one or red one" - even without names!
Using the beach costs 20 EUR per person per day, no further comments.
They offer you for free using the pool of the Park dei Principi hotel. But water there (as they claim, "sea water") is so much filled with chlorine, that we could not stand it for more than 2 days.
In general, the hotel cannot stand for comparison with other 4 star hotels we stayed at for lower prices during a couple of last years ( for example, Aquarium in Lloret de Mar, Spain, or Silva Beach in Hersonissos, Greece).
