Just returned from a very wet week in beautiful Sorrento. Thought that we would get some late sunshine in during the half term but no such luck!!!! However noone can guarantee the weather but I will definately return earlier in the year to hopefully see the area at it's best. We weren't able to appreciate sitting outside drinking coffee in the pretty streets due to the thunderstorms lol.
We did however mange to see Vesuvius and Pompei on the one dry day and they are both well worth a visit, amazing view of Naples from Vesuvious.
We went with Thompsons and the guide was really infornative but we were very rushed. We found out later that it is very easy to get around Naples by bus and the train from Sorrento takes you directly to Popmei, it is also very cheap. Even though we paid Thompsons for the trip, it doesnt include entro so you have to pay that on top.
The hotel was amazing we had a room in the main buliding no 226 it has a partial sea view. We really liked it as we had a view of the mountain in front of us and a sea view on the side.The balcony was very small but as it was raining we didn't sit out there,
I have to say I loved being able to change the ambience of our room by choosing the different colour sequence of the lights,a real novelty.
We did manage a couple of visits to the hot tubs very early in the morning,,,,so worth it.
The staff at the hotel were so obliging and we wanted for nothing,always service with a smile and they work so hard at all times.
There is a complimentary bus to take you into the town, personally we liked being in a very quiet area but able to go into town if we felt like it.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel and I would definately go back. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all staff for a lovely holiday
