As a family, we stayed here in July for almost a week. Our first time to Sorrento and we weren't disappointed in the least! We arrived at the Magi house to be greeted by the wonderful owner Mariano and his superb and very efficient staff. We had the ground floor apartment for the three of us.
We had the most wonderful breakfast on the top floor terrace and nothing was too much for Mariano - he served you each morning with boiled eggs, pastries, homemade cakes, toast, ham, cheese, coffee/tea and hot chocolate (by request from my 14 year old!). A real delight to have breakfast each morning.
Mariano enjoyed chatting to his clients, asking them about their day and being genuinely interested in hearing your news. It was such a pleasure to go back to the Magi house each day. We were given ideas and recommendations about tours and places to see, aswell as restaurants to eat at. Our very, very favourite was Marameo on the se front. We used the sun beds in the day, had fantastic lunches there and usually booked a table for the evening. Fresh fish each night was wonderful, especially cooked and presented the way it was. For us, other restaurants didn't quite match the sitting on the 'pier' and watching the sun go down! Thank you for the excellent recommendation Mariano!
All in all, we enjoyed the whole experience of the Magi House and everything that went with that. The location was just fab!
We did a jet trip to Capri, which was wonderful. A warning, when you arrive, take the 'tram' up and walk down. Walking up the steps in the extreme heat, was quite difficult, as we and other tourists found out. It's great to walk down to catch the jet back.
I would fully recommend anyone staying in this small inimate hotel in Sorrento.
Thank you to Mariano and his lovely team for a most enjoyable stay. We will be back one day .......
