while the hotel offers a few decent large rooms at a cost exceeding euros 600 , the rest is made of dark,no view rooms with flee market type of furniture with tired sofas, stained carpets and uncomfortable beds.
we stayed there 2 weeks in august 2006 and it has been our worst vacation experience ever.
staying on the third floor means no water in your shower.
this hotel is living on a 20 years past reputation but no decent maintenance,renovation during that period.
the park is beautiful but this is not enough and not exceptional in this region.the pool is large but its maintenance is average .
Restaurant extremely expensive ( count 150 euros for 2 without wine for a 3 courses dinner ) and be patient as it takes 2 to 3 hours to be served.
Good restaurants in Sorrento cost twice less but after a 25 euros round trip taxi fares to town.
Cancelling policy of that hotel not in line with a 5 stars one as you are requested to pay full stay reserved if you decide to leave earlier. This hotel is at best a 3 star one by international standards.
Staff very nice and friendly , ready to help and fully aware of the state of their hotel and trying to compensate but thats not enough even if it helps.This hotel is only opened 7 months a year and family owners try to compensate for the full year in charging outrageous rates for what they offer.
overall not a place we will return to neither we would recommend to anyone.
there are so many nice places on the Amalfitaine Coast that this one can be avoided witn no regrets.
