“Beautiful hotel, central location, would go again!”
Reviewed 14 August 2011

La Favorita is a brand new, clean and beautiful hotel. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the rooms were modern and well equipped. The location is amazing and you can reach the town centre in a matter of minutes or panoramic views of the sea in even less. The pool top bar is spectacular. Sorrento is full of things to do for the whole family and train and water links to Amalfi and Positano are easy to use and worth the effort. We would particularly recommend Herculanium over Pompei, both are worth a visit but Herculaneium is much quieter and a lottt less walking/queing to see just as much, a tour guide at such places is also worth the money! The 'Blue Cruise' to Positano was also good value for money. The tourist information is only a few minutes walk away but make sure you find the real one as shops that claim to be tourist information ofter don't offer the best deals, (the tourist information building also has a wonderful restaurant in the back and you can reserve tables easily) It is a good idea to take an adaptor with you as the one thing we thought the rooms did lack was enough plugs. Also, take your own beach towel for the pool as if you hire out a towel with the hotel's pool cards and then lose it, it is a fifty pounds fine. The hotel is expensive but doesn't dissappoint. We'd happily go back next year.

Room Tip: Thomas Cook reccomends £500 more for a 'panoramic seaview', you can't see the sea so don...

We have just got back from our honeymoon at La Favorita. It certainly lived up to the reviews. The location was excellent and the hotel itself, immaculate. All staff were friendly and incredibly helpful whenever we needed anything. The pool views are amazing and I would recommend paying extra for a front view. We were on the third floor and had lovely views of the hotel's terrace and Mount Vesuvius. Breakfast was excellent......my husband certainly had his fill of bruschetta! The surrounding area is wonderful and we will certainly return to La Favorita. Thankyou for making our honeymoon perfect.

We had a very relaxing break at La favorita, we had been recommended the hotel by our Thomsons travel agent so our expectations were alreday very high. We were not dissappointed, From the moment we arrived to the day we left we experienced excellent service from all the staff, Our room was fabulous,beautifully decorated , spotless and quite we even enjoyed a partial sea view.

Whilst in the centre of Sorrento is was tucked away and very quiet, the roof top pool whilst a little cold was very refreshing and enjoyed spectacular views across the bay.

We were only B & B so never experienced dinner, in fact that was the only drawback there was a stunning restaurant with outside seating in the orangery but no diners. During our weeks visit we never so anyone eat dinner.. like most people I won't eat in an empty restaurant.

If the quality of the breakfast offering was replicated for dinner i would have gladly eaten in the restaurant on several occasions.

We researched each stop of our Italian vacation extensively, and chose La Favorita for the 3 days we were staying in Sorrento; we were not disappointed. We had a triple with a bay view, and the room was large compared to the average European room. The bathroom was enormous and both rooms were well-appointed and spotless. The views from our comfortable, private balcony were extraordinary and we could sit there for hours, if there wasn't so much to do within a couple of hours in every direction. The overall service was top-notch and we greatly enjoyed our stay. If you want to visit anywhere on the peninsula, the Amalfi Coast, Naples, Capri, etc. you'd be hard-pressed to find a better place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the bay side; our views were amazing and the noise levels were minimal

We spent two weeks on honeymoon at La Favorita in July. When we arrived, the hotel very kindly upgraded us to a room with a sea view which was a wonderful surprise. This special touch hallmarked the quality of service for our entire stay.

I cannot fault La Favorita. Its location is superb, right in the heart of Sorrento. It is a modern hotel but with old-school charm and is impeccably clean.

We found all the staff to be very professional, attentive and helpful. By the end of two weeks, we were on first name terms with some of them and very much enjoyed their friendliness. We would say they went out of their way to make our stay a pleasant one.

Our room was a decent size with a lovely balcony, large bed, flatscreen TV and safe. The rooms on the front of the hotel get the evening sun so it was nice to sit out and have a drink before heading out. The Hotel Tramontano somewhat obscures the view of the sea, but you can see the sea and i would still class the view as pretty spectacular. The rooms all have electronic shutters which are a real boon for those long lie-ins and block out any background city noise.

It is the view from the rooftop, however, which is most fabulous. This has got to be one of the best spots in Sorrento and the view from your sunlounger over the Gulf of Naples with Vesuvius in the background is simply awesome. The pool isn't the biggest, but you are in a city centre hotel and it is certainly perfectly adequate. The hotel provided towels and we never had any issue getting a sunlounger at any time of day.

We had a wonderful experience at la Favorita and wouldn't hesitate to return.

We are pleased you had a wonderful experience at our hotel and we think that you gave the right description of the Grand Hotel La Favorita: its superb location; its modern and at the same time antique style; its impeccably cleaneless; its pretty spectacular view either from the rooms or from the roof top terrace; its friendly and professional staff.

Yes, we do agree with you: our hotel is one of the best spots in Sorrento.

We hope you mantain your promise: to return and stay with us again.
