You want to feel relaxed with any hotel experience, well I couldn't have chilled out anymore. Having read mixed reviews, I was immediately surprised on arrival with the decorative gates, palm tree aligned driveway leading to the fountain near reception. All the receptionists were extremely helpful day or night, check in was a breeze where I was handed my key and remote for TV. The room was a great size with a lovely en suite and both very clean. We had a balcony overlooking S'ant Agnello direction, beautiful.
We headed straight to the pool area to meet with our friends, everyone was there and happy, no complaints with hotel. The pool area was spotless, the pool was lovely and a great size with the pool bar being very handy if a sudden thirst comes upon you. Though everything you order is billed to your room so you pay all when you checkout, it's maybe worth having a rough tally in your head or just don't get carried away on the cocktails.
Hotel has a very prompt shuttle bus service which I used but I preferred walking the 20 minutes from Sorrento. There are plenty of nice places near the hotel, I have to give special mention to the friendly, family run jolly blu bar (50m right from hotel gate) great value for money, great atmosphere(certainly was for world cup anyway) and bruschetta to die for. Sorrento is beautiful, I will definitely go back and yes there are plenty of hotels in Sorrento centro but I would still consider the parco Del sole to get away from the hustle. Oh yes, breakfast was lovely every morning with many helpful, friendly waiters with a good variation of food. Hope this helps! Ps, don't forget to take remote back to reception on checkout!
