The first thing about the Mediterraneo is the location: just far enough from Sorrento to be quiet at night while being close enough to get there easily. The shuttle bus helps too, as the local taxis are not particularly cheap.
The staff were all very friendly and went out of their way to help with anything they could: from our experience Pina and Aniello at reception deserve particular mention, as well as Arturo at the pool bar.
It was difficult to find any fault overall: the decor everywhere was very stylish, the pool area was very nice and has a dining area for lunch and drinks, as well as dinner on some nights.
If you want to get closer to the sea, you can pay EUR 10 for a day pass on the sun loungers at La Marinella at the foot of the cliffs, with a lift directly down from the hotel. If you just want a swim, skip the pass, head down and just turn left onto the public spiaggia.
Going back to food, the main restaurant, which has unbelievable views, does great breakfasts and at night is well worth visiting for dinner at least once. No matter what time of day, try to get a table on the terrazzo.
If possible, also go for a sea view room. Talking of which our only quibble was that the room, although very comfortable in every way, wasn't the biggest and typically for a building with high ceilings and stone floors, didn't have the best sound insulation. The bathroom was slightly tired-looking too.
Having said all that, in general we had a lovely stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Mediterraneo to anyone else.
