We booked this hotel for our honeymoon after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor and through the Thomson website and we stayed for 11 days. I have to say we were delighted with our choice. The hotel is about an hour and half from Naples airport by coach transfer. The transfer is not for the faint-hearted though as the roads leading to Sorrento are very narrow at places. The hotel reception on arrival was excellent. We were greeted by the hotel staff who asked us for our names and then handed us some champagne and invited us through for dinner. Service and food is where this hotel really excels. All the staff were helpful, friendly and took a real interest in making sure we were looked after. For example, there were none of the pizzas left at the lunch buffet that I'd taken a fancy to. A few mins later, a freshly made pizza arrived on our table. On another occasion, completely out of the blue, we were handed a freshly made calzone to try by the chefs. The relationship between the staff and the hotel residents was excellent throughout and these little attentions to detail made the whole experience feel very special. There was never any shortage of food and the quality never dipped at any point. The dinner was part buffet for the antipasti and deserts, but a more traditional sit down meal for the primi pasti and secondi pasti. The bar was well stocked and being all inclusive we overall never felt hungry or dissatisifed like we have done on other all inclsives. Our room was very Italian with intricate tiling and a four-poster bed. We think this is two hotels put together and we were in the Occhio Marino part, so we can't comment on the main hotel rooms, but we liked our room which had a nice view of the sea from the balcony. The walls are just about thick enough, but the bed was comfy. The poolside was fairly typical of most resorts but being adults only it was much quieter than other resorts we've been to. There is a bus that heads to Sorrento on a regular basis and we would definately recommend visiting, especially after hours as they shut the roads to traffic and kept the shops open late. Not sure if it was for a festival or a regular occurance but nevertheless enjoyable. Overall, we loved this place and had an amazing time. We truly believe it is worth 5 stars and can thoroughly recommend it. We have said that one day we would like to go back.
