“Breathtaking views of the sea ....”
Reviewed December 22, 2011

Great location, views and excellent value. Located just north of Sorrento, sitting cliffside, with a view of the sea and the Isle of Capri.
Recommend rooms with sea views .... if you do not have a sea view room, you will be disappointed.
Excellent morning meal which is included in price of room. Very nice bar area with great views.
Beautiful pool with great views of the sea. Steps down to the sea for added sights and a swim in the sea.

Room Tip: Rooms with a sea view are a must

The hotel is situated in a beautiful location and the rooms facing the sea have terraces with wonderful views. Service was excellent and the use of the internet and large swimming pool made the stay even better. The hotel provides complimentary transport to and from Sorrento about every 3 hours and this is useful since a one way taxi ride is about 50 Euros. The food at the hotel for dinner is very good but the menu is limited. However, breakfast ,which comes with the room, is very good with a large selection including hot items. I would definitely recommend the hotel unless you do not want to be constrained by the shuttle bus schedule for trips to Sorrento or the Amalfi coast.

Hotel Delfino is an ideal place for couples who like a quiet holiday in a really beautiful surrounding. The rooms, restaurant and terrace have a perfect view on the island Capri. The staff is very kind and helpful. Food is delicious. You can relax by the pool or even walk down the steps and have a swim in the sea. A small hotel bus brings you to the centre of Sorrento, from where you can easily take a train to go to Naples, Pompei, Herculaneum, Vesuvius, ...
We don't often go back to the same hotel, but I really want to return to Delfino for even a few days more than this year.

When I booked this Hotel, I was under the impression it was located in Sorrento. Please do not make that mistake yourselves. Beds are hard as bricks, no Internet access from Rooms, Hotel staff rude and inconssistent, give them an average rating, as they had some good and bad days as we all do!

I will be honest and candid about all my ratings, this Hotel if it wouldn't be for the spectacular views, I would have rated it much lower.

Location: Far from everything, Shuttle Bus service is OK, but if the bus is full, local taxi service from Sorrento to Hotel Delfino runs for 70 EUR + tip, heafty clip! Hotel Delfino Taxi Service provided by Serpico (or Cerpico not sure correct spelling), was inexpensive, and a couple of the guys were SUPER!

Hotel: Clean! Staff: Had its really bad moments and Good ones. Room Ammenities: Don't expect much, BED hard as bricks, Food Quality: GO to Sorrento! Room Views: DID I SAY SPECTACULAR? Yes they are!

My wife and I are foreign Citizens of the U.S.A., we noticed the difference in treatment towards the Europeans Vs. us. We played it off, and were extremely polite and courteous, but seriously, we would never return here nor recommend it to our extended list of friends and family. Ciao

Room Tip: Stay in Sorrento avoid the hassels

The location is lovely, the isle of Capri is in full view from most of the rooms with a sea view. Although a little out of the way, the hotel provides courtesy bus rides to Sorrento, this being the closest major town. The room we stayed in was comfortable and quite spacious with a nice open balcony with a view of Capri. The pool is in an exellent poisition. Breakfast buffet is plentiful with a good choice of food. We did not try the restaurant so we cannot comment. The staff were very courteous and attentive. The only disappointment was that the mobile telephony reception was rather flakey and Wi-Fi was really only available near the reception area. Having one's own transport will greatly enhance the stay in this lovely part of Campania.

After hours of hiking through dusty ruins, my wife and I looked forward each day to returning to Hotel Delfino. The beautiful setting and relaxing pool were the perfect antidote to a day of sightseeing. And the staff could not have been nicer.
I recommend a superior room, especially the ones on the top floor with the large balconies for watching sunsets over Capri.
We ate in the hotel dining room all 5 nights we were there. Although we patronized gourmet restaurants in Rome, I can say that the food at the Delfino was excellent. The menu changes each night and the service was superb. And it was so much easier to stay at the hotel after a long day of driving.
We had a car and were willing to drive in the daily Le Mans race on the Sorrento cliffs, but if one were to use the hotel transportation, the entire region of Campania is reachable. The boat excursions from the hotel go to the Amalfi Coast as well as Capri (although the pick up was never at the hotel as advertised, but involved a van ride to the Massa Lubrense harbor).
There is also a shuttle into Sorrento from which trains and ferries are available to get to the rest of the region.
We would stay at the Delfino again in a heartbeat.

We returned to the Delfino for the 6th or 7th time (losing count now!) but yet again the 'wow factor' was produced! the Refurb of the Terrace Bar is so chic and beautiful, and the lighting and ambiance, all designed with taste. A beautiful place to relax in the evening or through the day - the views of Capri and cruise liners in the evening are wonderful.
The pool Restaurant has been refurbished, too, and the Gala dinner was held there. The staff worked so hard for us, it was absolutely magical in the twilight. New furnishings and lighting made it very special to eat there - and the staff led by Francesco were faultless. Very welcoming and friendly - what more could you need to make you feel special?
Thank you to all of you and I hope we can return soon.

Room Tip: Sea view for Capri and watch the little fishing boats in the mornings
