Stayed at this hotel for 10 nights at the end of July with my wife and 2 children aged 10 and 11. The hotel is located in St Agnello approximately 30 - 40 minutes walk from Sorrento (it's probably not that far but in the heat it seems far enough). That said the hotel provides a regular free shuttle bus service into Sorrento which we took advantage off on several occasions (both during the day and in the evening). St Agnello has its own train station approx 10 - 15 mins walk away (turn left out of the hotel and then left again at the crossroads) which was convenient for the local train to Pompei (3.50 Euro's return) and Herculaneum (4.40 Euro's). We stayed in a family room equipped with TV (BBC and Sky news only in English), safe, balcony, air conditioning and fridge. Bathroom and the room itself were immaculately clean and serviced every day. Wireless Internet available in your room and elsewhere in the hotel grounds for a token 2 Euro's for 7 days (ask at reception and they provide you with a username and password). Tea and coffee making facilities in your room were available for an additional 4 Euro's a day. Swimming pool and sun lounging area was very pleasant and the pool was bigger than I expected from the various photos I'd seen. However the loungers were a little close to the pool and I was conscious that my kids didn't splash anyone as they played (swimming pool towels available again at extra cost). We stayed half board, breakfast consisted of cereals, ham, cheese, eggs, bread and pastries, all pleasant enough but functionary rather than being something to look forward to. At your breakfast table you were asked to order your evening meal by marking your choices on the menu provided (typically 4 choices of a starter, main course and dessert). I found the quality and variety of the evening meal to be very good and worth the extra money paid to go half board. Hotel drinks were reasonably priced, 4 Euro's for a local beer, 3 Euro's for a tea/coffee, 2.5 Euro's for a coke etc and several bottles of Italian wine priced between 15 - 20 Euro's). The hotel staff were all very friendly and helpful in particular the reception staff who helped book a private excursion and gave us details of where to buy bus tickets and catch local buses. All in all this was a good choice and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the hotel made a good base from which to explore the local area.
