“Very nice hotel!”
Reviewed 15 September 2011

Panorama palace is a really nice place if you want to spend a good and calm time. There were two of us resting in the hotel. We booked a double room with the sea view. The sea view was really enormous especially in the evenings when the sun set! The room was clean and comfortable. Everything needed was inside (Air-conditioning, TV, Minibar, etc.) The bathroom included both shower and bath, that was really nice.
The restaurant in the hotel was very nice. the food for dinner changed everyday and it tasted really delicious(but it is not very cheap actually)
The location of the hotel was really comfortable. As I already told it had the sea view and is situated not far from the see (10 minutes walk max). It is situated on the hill but don't worry, there is an elevator which takes you down to the sea. Bus stop is situated 5 minutes walk from the Hotel, so it is very comfortable to get wherever you need. Hotel also has it's own swimming pool, but actually I didn't use it and balconies where you can have a rest, to take sun bathes or just go out for a smoke.
Wifi is free in the lobby. By the way the lobby is very nice decorated, armchairs, sofas, beautiful pictures on the walls so it is pleasant to spend time there during your wifi surf.
When you go out of the hotel you can see a snack bar, which is located really excellent.It is called Panorama bar. You can sit there, breathing fresh sea air and watching the sunset above the sea.
The stuff was extremely nice and helpful and very friendly. They helped us lots of times, always wondered is everything alright during our stay. Helped us to find excellent excursions to spend our time and helped us with all of our problems. Thanks them a lot. Want to tell special thank to Antonio, who works in Panorama Bar. He is very friendly and nice guy, who can always help you and will make your stay in the panorama bar really comfortable and homelike.
Thanks Panorama palace's staff for our perfect stay at the hotel.
If I will ever go to Meta again, I'll certainly choose Panorama Again!

Room Tip: I recommend a room with the sea view.

First we didn't know that bus is not allowded to get in front of the hotel - we had to walk up the street. Aircondition was 5 euros/day - but they turn it on from 4 pm to 6 am (if you wanted to stay in the room during the day - the aircondition didntt work). There supposed to be a fridge in the room - they didn't have. There supposed to be wifi - didn't work. Ants on the terrace were annoing. The beach was about 50 meters in a straigh line - but you had to walk down and up-stairs at least twice a day. Beach was poore - rocks and stones. The only good thing was food!!! Typical itlian and very tasty

The Hotel seems to offer most things it claims to. I found all staff to be very friendly and eager to help wherever they could. I found no issue with cleanliness. The bedrooms are twin or double, but this means pushing the twin beds together and using a double sheet. Not ideal as the mattresses are worn in the middle, making it as if we were both sleeping on seperate beds anyway. The hotel claims to offer an airport transfer service. We couldn't make contact via email before the trip, the hotel didn't reply. We managed to pay 10 Euros each for a coach to Meta. The return journey wasn't so much fun. We had a very early morning flight. The hotel said no to a transfer. Helpful. They did offer to arrange a taxi for 120 Euros. Far too expensive. They then offerred a 'friend' to transfer us, for 90 Euros. I declined. We paid 50 Euros for a small hotel near the airport the night before we flew. The train to Naples was only 3 euros each. Quids in. All in all, we had a brilliant holiday. The hotel was somewhere to sleep and it allowed this very well. I agree with the early morning garbage collections, this is an issue, one morning, someone decided to empty a bin full of glass bottles into a truck at 0300 morning. The breakfast was adequate but didn't change once. Crossaints, salami, luncheon meat and cheese. Plus cereal. I would have liked a varierty at least. We skipped breakfast at least three times in a week. We would go to Sorrento again, but not the Panoramo Palace. The bus service was easy to Sorrento but took about 40 minutes.

Panorama Palace looked good on paper and on the map it looks as if the view is amazing, but once there, expectations fizzled to disappointment. I arrived as part of a group, and the bus could not make it all the way up to the hotel because the streets are narrow, so we unloaded our luggage near the sea and a little van came from the hotel to carry them to the hotel. While the luggage got a comfortable ride, group members had to walk up a very steep road to the hotel. The hotel itself is dated but looked clean. The food was ok, but the dining room staff seemed overzealous about sitting people in specific tables even if the restaurant was completely empty. My room was clean with dated and sparse furniture, and the paper-thin towels absorb nothing and that so many hotels in Italy seem to favor. That was all fine, but they advertise their hotel as having WiFi so everyone in our group was looking forward to it. But once there we found out that WiFi only works in the lobby and costs 3 euro for the privilege. We all thought, no problem, there was a small sitting area so some of us paid the wifi fee and sat at the lobby, only to be frustrated beyond belief with the lack of connectivity. One by one members of the group went to the desk and got a refund (probably three or four of us). I thought that if everyone left, I would finally be able to connect but I too gave up and went to ask for a refund. To my surprise, the lady behind the desk was visibly frustrated and became rude telling me that she "cannot give a refund every time a service doesn't work"! The hotel is far away from the heart of Sorrento and if you want to go out you will need to call a taxi. There is a little cafe/bar nearby with nice few of the sea, but they closed at 10 PM when we were there. I went to Sorrento last year and stayed in a nicer hotel right in town and it made all the difference having friendly staff and being right in the heat of town.

This hotel is a good 45 min drive to Sorrento or 60euro cab fare. There's one tiny elevator which makes it impossible to use when a group arrives with luggage. Across from the hotel is a small bar with an outdoor patio. At the bottom of the hill and long windy road is the beach. Breakfast was rather poor.

NOT a 4 star hotel! I would rate it a high 2 or low 3. The staff were friendly but none of them seemed to know anything and if they did they didn't want to help. They didn't know bus or train schedule for the holiday and seemed like a burden for them to find out for me. My room was freezing at night and was told that the heat had been cut off for the summer already (in April) which during the day was fine but it was absolutely freezing at night. When I called to ask about it I was told to get a blanket out of the wardrobe that was all. No apology for the inconvenience no offer of anything else. The hotel looks like a college dorm, old, smelly, and loud! I found numerous hairs in the sheets of the bed! GROSS! I was booked for 4 nights but left after 1! The hotel is also NOT in Sorrento but in Meta which is a bus and train ride away.

To the hotel- You need to make some serious upgrades or don't call yourself a 4 star hotel

Just a word of caution. We arrived at the hotel around lunchtime, to be told that they had arranged a special lunch for those that would like it. Before accepting their kind offer of hospitality, please ask them for the price. Having been up since 3:30am my wife and I decided to accept, and had a snack, consisting of four slices of motzerella cheese and four slices of tomato, a piece of fruit tart and a drink each. We were presented with a bill for 36 euros. A tad over priced as you could get the cheese and tomato snack for 4.50 locally. They seemed to charge what they liked, having discussed the matter with our fellow tavellers later on, the price varied alot.
Our room was clean and comfortable for the three nights of our stay, not a quiet place, awoken several times by very early morning services (dustcart etc.,), and then found myself listening to the town clock striking on the hour and every quater, alas no view over the bay of Naples, before travelling north for the rest of our tour.
Half board - the hotel food served was adequate.
Staff were helpful and attetive.
The resort of Metalooks a little tired/untidy. Mostly private beaches nearby, a little challenging for those with walking issues, easier going down than coming back. I don't think the beach lift was in use, only 0.60 cents (one way).
Hotel, pool, (unheated), & lounge areas clean and comfortable.

Dear Guest,

We thank you very much for your kind review. We took note of your disappointment regarding the snak wich is "Caprese salad" a typical Sorrento meal we serve as main course. Regarding the price, we can ensure that for a caprese salad, services, covered and dring € 15,00 per person are not too much. However we really appreciate you highlight about this matter. Regarding the noises which disturbed you while sleeping, unfortunately we have a church nearby and here the bell rings every qurter. From the room the agent booked for your stay there is no view because it was an economy one. We are really glad you appreciate the food we served during your stay. Meta is a quite resort few steps from Sorrento but is safe and clean. The lift you saw close to the hotel runs and takes € 0,60 per way. Finally I would like to underlight that we are a seasonal hotel opened in Summer time we do not need to have an heated pool.

We really hope to welcome you again in our hotel offering you a sea view room at the same price of an econly one.

Best Regards

Luigia Dell'Amura
