“Santa Lucia also known as Casetta Ale Sorrento”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

Broken fridge, so nothing was kept cool, Broken microwave, Ant infestation over kitchen worktops. We spent all our money eating out, what is the point of booking a self catering accommodation when it is not possible to cook for ourselves. Also our flight was not for many hours so our cases were kindly looked after by the owner, unfortunately he thought it was ok to leave our belongings in the communal garden???? also we were not warned about the horrendous spiral staircase, not much good when you have a knee condition. Also there was a lack of kitchen utensils and no peace by the pool either where one was continually bitten by ants. 900 euros for 5 nights what a rip off. The accommodation is clean other than the ants and there is air conditioning units, basic tv only a couple of channels in english though and there is a rooftop patio with table and chairs (4) but no sunshade so it gets very hot.

Room Tip: We were in roof top accommodation, but there is a spiral staircase if you are young and fit no probl...

We have just returned from 10 days staying at the Santa Lucia apartments. We were getting married in Sorrento and it provided a fantastic self catering option for family ans friends.

On arrival the pool was being filled for tbe start of the season and on seeing that we had children in our party they worked really hard to get it completed quickly.

The accommodation is lovely. Everything you need without the technology overload wed have in the UK. Lovely and rustic. It is a 5 minute walk from the main square and Sorrento itself was a dream location for our wedding.

What made our time was the family that own it. They are fantastic. Gino and Tonino are brilliant. They threw us a pre wedding dinner for 30 of our friends and family. Made pizzas in their oven and took the time all week to give us advice, tips and just a few fun stories.

We had a fantastic time a d will definately return!

Thank you all

Bex, Joe and William

Residence Santa Lucia was a quiet and comfortable haven only a short stroll from the hustle and bustle of Sorrento central. Antonio and 'front of house' man Gino were fabulous hosts with the latter providing valuable info on sites and tours - especially for the boat trip to Capri and Herculaneum. He also put on gastronomic delights for his guests on BBQ and Pizza nights in the garden -you can safely skip lunch! We stayed in the Capri apartment, a one bedroom plus loft unit overlooking the main garden area, which was very comfortable. It is a leisurely 10 minute walk to the centre of town and station (15 euro by taxi) and supermarkets are just around the corner. The pool was a welcome sight at the end of a long hot day of sightseeing.

Just came back from a week in Sorrento. We were there for our daughter's wedding in Positano and both immediate families stayed at Resort Santa Lucia. We had all of the villa's except 1. We had a great time and the owners were very accommodating, Geno cooked pizza for the rehearsal dinner for 60 people and pasta for the families on our last night. Both meals were fantastic, in fact some said they were the best meals that they had in Italy. Always willing to arrange cars, tours or what ever we needed. Close to town, bakery, markets and shopping and train station. A great week . Thank You

My husband and I stayed here in September 2012 for 5 nights in their Capri Appartment. It had a large king size bed and another little fold out sleeper upstairs. Bathroom was basic and the shower always had hot water! Kitchen/dining room area was large and really just perfect for us.

On one of the nights they had a BBQ and the other pizza night. Great idea. You get to meet the other people staying in the residence...

Only thing I can say slightly negatively was that we did not know about the cleaning fee until we talked about money (which was almost immediately). It was not substantial by any means but in all my emails (and there were quite a few in which I asked for all costs involved etc) did he not once mention the cleen up fee.

Oh and a word of warning, almost everywhere in Italy only accept CASH payments!

What can I say? this place is a little gem..... we have just returned from a week at Residence Santa Lucia and have had such a great time.
The apartments ( we stayed in Amalfi, very clean - everything you could need) are lovely, set in the gardens of an old farmhouse and surrounded by lemon, lime and peach trees. There are hammocks, a pool and a communal eating /sitting area.
It is very quiet, yet only a 10 minute walk to the centrre of Sorrento.
Gino and Antonio live in the farmhouse on site with the family, so it is lovely to have the kiddies, grandmother (age 92) and Sara the dog running around. Sara runs around Grandmum - not!!
The whole family are lovely and we had two great evenings when Luigi made firstly pizza and then pasta, a taste of real Italy!
Would most definbately return and recommend - thanks for a great stay.
Ciao!!! Julie,Chester
