We spent ages trying to decide on the best centre from which to "do" the Amalfi coast, Pompei, Herculaneum, Vesuvius etc.

More through luck than judgement we settled on Vico Equense a lovely small town that is NOWHERE near as commercialised as Sorrento, Amalfi, Positano et al.

Nevertheless Vico has some very good hotels and restaurants, gelaterias at considerably less cost than places like Positano/Amalfi.

Taking our life in our hands we decided to hire a car and generally it was fine once you got used to motorbikes overtaking coaches coming towards you on a hairpin bend.

With hindsight we would have got the hotel to pick us up from the airport and hired the car in Vico Equense for perhaps 3 days only as most places could be easily reached by train.

One of the huge benefits of Vico is that it has a railway station with lots of very cheap trains to Naples, Pompei, Herculaneum and Sorrento so you are able to get around a lot without having to go on buses or taxis.

All the towns we went to:- Amalfi, Sorrento, Ravello, Positano Capri were stunningly beautiful although fairly comercialised particularly Capri which was massively overcrowded (in mid june) and in our experience a bit of a "rip off" city.

As far as the Aequa is concerned, we loved it. Yes there are things you could criticise like the outside could do with a coat of paint , some of the public rooms look a little bit tired, the breakfast was nothing special particularly for late risers, as has already been stated but in all other respects fantastic. In fairness the waiters at breakfast are more than happy to get you an omelette if you wish.

Can't speak highly enough of the guys on reception, even when under great pressure from phone calls, other guests etc they were unfailingly polite, friendly and very helpful. They are a mine of information on how to get to places which stations to use etc. Their English is also extremely good.

The rooms are fine, comfortable and very clean without being in anyway fancy. The pool is really nice too although I suspect it may be a bit cool outside the Summer months.

One really pleasant surprise was the quality of Wifi which although not available in the room itself was available all round the rest of the hotel and all round the pool too.

All in all Vico Equense is a fantastic base for the Amalfi coast and the Aequa is a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the pool and had a view of the sea which was great.

Stayed here end of May on Travelsphere package. The hotel has a fantastic location (including travel on train to Naples or Sorrento) and boasts a huge terrace, lovely garden and first class pool. OK so it is a bit dated but that to me is part of the charm coupled with being family run. Our bedroom was comfortable and clean and had a safe. Only thing I would have liked was tea/coffee making facilities but no real hardship yo have water. All of the staff are fantastic and nothing is too much for them to do for you. While we were there one other group was there for the first couple of nights and two others for the last couple of nights, but breakfast and dinner service went without a hitch despite the numbers. I must admit that I had anticipated pretty mediocre food and was I pleasantly surprised! The least we were offered was a three course meal (and the biggest five courses) and some very interesting and different pasta dishes as the first course - yummy! If anything wasn't to your liking then the staff were only too willing to get a different dish though I personally was more than happy with the offered Italian fare.
To add to the atmosphere with all the tour groups and a few others the staff still managed to cater for a couple of weddings or birthday celebrations in weekend afternoons with the attendant buzz . The decorations and place settings were absolutely out of this world and I am sorry I did not get a picture of some of them.
If I ever decide to visit the Bay of Naples then this will be my choice of base.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room and bathroom were clean, which I find very important. The decor is few decades behind, but I can overlook that. My only problem was wifi Internet that they gave me pas ode for, but my iPad was not even picking up the signal.
Hotel terrace is large with spectacular view of Napoli and Vesuvius.

I recently stayed at this hotel and was lucky to be given a room with a balcony overlooking the Bay of Naples. The smell of wisteria was in the air, and the room was clean and comfortable. All of the front desk staff were patient, smiling and gracious. They always checked to make sure that my stay was running smoothly. The breakfast was adequate and the location in the town is sensational, because it is near to everything, yet quiet and scenic.

Room Tip: I had room 82, which had a lovely view.

We stayed here for a week on a Travelsphere (Page and Moy) holiday staying half board at the hotel. Paid £160 (£80 each) for an upgraded room, which was well worth the money, as ours was quiet and clean, being on the top floor at the back (only two rooms on our corridor), with a private terrace and a wonderful panoramic view across the Bay of Naples to Vesuvius. Beds were comfortable and there was the added bonus of a small safe in every room, which was most useful. The staff were helpful and friendly. They were good at organising special vegetarian meals for us. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Food was fine and portions quite generous. The house wine was a good price (E8 for red and white and E10 for rose) and of reasonable quality. Water at E1.50 a bottle was a welcome addition at dinner, the weather being hot, dry and sunny throughout the week. Hotel has pretty, well-kept grounds and is very handy for the town centre with its shops, bars, restaurants and only a five minute walk from the railway station. The wisteria was in full bloom on the terrace and its scent heavenly. The view from the terrace across the bay to Vesuvius was very picturesque,
Other guests staying - the party of Australian 6th formers were polite, mature and well behaved - unlike the younger European schoolkids who were a bit excitable and noisy. Hotel very kindly put those groups in the other dining room so we more mature guests would not be disturbed at dinner. We much appreciated that.
Overall, we had a very enjoyable holiday, with a lovely group of like-minded people, and an excellent guide/group leader. Would highly recommend the hotel and the holiday. Thank you for looking after us so well and making it a most memorable and interesting week.
