This is an older hotel with some very nice classic style touches. Plenty of quiet public areas with good, comfy seating. Pool is small but never got busy; plenty of sunbeds with a lovely bar (serving snacks too) and sitting area adjacent. Beware the pool is mostly VERY deep - 3 metres if I recall correctly. Not good for non-swimmers!
Our room on the 2nd floor was bigger than average, with very adequate balcony, clean and fresh. Rooms certainly have a more classic style, but are perfectly OK and have some charm, just don't expect "super modern"! As has been said by others, the walls are very thin and sound travels easily, but we didn't have a problem with this.
Staff were very firendly and helpful, from the restaurant manager to the cleaners.
The food at breakfast was adequate; some lovely pastries, but hot food selection was limited.
The evening food was much better, generally 3-4 choices for starters and mains, plus buffet desserts,. All cooked and presented very well, except the "signature" brown (gravy type?) "smear" on all the dishes got wearing after a week. Several evenings were candlelit with live music, which was of a good standard. These evening meals were always very enjoyable. Check out the wine prices; a good selction was available, but a little pricey, starting at ~20 Euros. Halfway through the week we discovered the house wines were very acceptable and were 5 Euros for a very large glass. House wine was ~20 Euros by the bottle, or less than 15 Euros if bought by the glassful......go figure! By the end of the week, most people had cottoned on and were buying by the glass :-)
The hotel is just 5 minutes from a really lovely cafe and a free sitting/viewing area over the Bay to Naples to Vesuvius. We walked down there most nights after dinner, sometimes to get a coffee, other times somply to look at the stunning view and to spot the firework displays which seen to occur quite frequently across the bay.
The 5th floor public balcony of the hotel is well worth a visit for the views, especially in the evening, as the sun is setting - truely beautiful.
We used the hotel as a base to explore; jetboat to Amalfi, bus to Positano, and rail to Pompeii. All very easy to book and use if you do your homework.
This is our 3rd visit to the Sorrento area and we will be back again in the future.
We would recommend the hotel is you want a bit of classic style at a reasonable price, away form the bustle of Sorrento itself.
