Myself and my partner stayed here for 2 nights in Aug '05.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
The staff were excellent, friendly and attentive without being intrusive.
From the moment you step through the door you feel cocooned in luxury.
Rooms and common areas are finished to the high standard you would expect from a 5 Star hotel and perfectly maintained.
Our room was advertised as "mountain view", this should be read as "no sea view" and you should not expect a breathtaking mountain vista.
To us this was not a big deal and the views from the gardens and terraces down to the coast were spectacular.
The pool and terrace areas are glamorous, where you are looked after and cooled down by the staff providing sorbets and cold face cloths.
The hotels "Rossellini's" restaurant is a two Michelin stars restaurant so you now what your going to pay a few Euro for your meal.
We ate here one of the evenings and I am not a gastronomic critic so I won't say too much except that I preferred the simpler menu of Caruso's in Sorrento.
Breakfast in the mornings were a treat.
Great food, varied with lots of local produce, enjoyed on the terrace looking out over the coast.
Overall I would without any hesitation recommend the Palazzo Sasso to my family and friends.
I also look forward to staying here again soon.
From Ireland or the UK if you have some money to spend but time is short and you don't want to waste it traveling too far then this is an ideal venue.
It may be luxurious and marble laden but it's actually the staff that make a stay at this establishment a 5 Star Experience.
