We were recommended this hotel despite having a 1-year-old baby for whom there was nothing to do. He loved swimming but the pool was far too cold for an adult to go in, nevermind a young child. The room was tiny, the smallest on the floor according the the plan on the wall. We were put in there despite the hotel being almost empty. The only other guests were older couples. No problem, but no other kids for our son to play with.
The town at the back of the hotel is basic at best with Sorrento itself far too far away to walk (and too dangerous due to very twisty roads & Italian traffic).
The hotel is really shabby & tired. Towels supplied in the room were like bed linen. Furniture & rugs in the main foyer/ bar area look completely battered & moth eaten.
We were only there for 1 week but decided to shell out for a 2 night trip to Rome just for something to do, the hotel had no form of entertainment at all. We also went on trips to Pompeii & Herculaneum, brilliant days out. These and Rome were the only highlights of the holiday. Easy to get to by bus from the hotel to Sorrento (if it arrives on time or at all!) then train. Cheap too.
To be honest I think we were given bad advice as this was a terrible hotel to stay in with a baby at that time of year.
I was really disappointed as we had heard great things about Sorrento, sadly our hotel was not actually in Sorrento. If you are looking for somewhere nice to stay in Sorrento I have heard nothing but good things about the Hilton Palace. And it has a heated indoor pool too.
