On the 16th of May 2012 we had our wedding reception at the Grand Hotel La Favorita and they made sure that it was everything we could have wished for. We met with the Manager and his team when we arrived in Sorrento and they couldn't have been more helpful with the planning of the event.
Our ceremony was in the late afternoon and afterwards we were due to arrive at the Hotel to have our drinks reception in the beautiful Garden Terrace and then on to the rooftop for our meal. We received a call from the hotel at around 9am on the morning of the wedding to notify us that the owner of the hotel (Enzo I believe?) had checked the weather forecast and that there would be high winds in the late afternoon/evening and advised us of an alternative location (the wonderful dining room with marble floors and chandeliers) for our meal. We decided to go with their advice and we were not disappointed! If we had stayed the course and had the reception on the rooftop it could have really spoilt the day as the winds did pick-up. This made it cold later in the evening and it wouldn't have been possible for us to enjoy our meal or dancing! So thank you so much for checking for us!
The cake that was provided by the Hotel was absolutely outstanding and everyone commented on how delicious it was. Throughout the night the staff were tremendously helpful and polite, we even managed to coax a few of them into a little sing-along and a dance.
We couldn't have asked for a better venue or more attentive staff and we would really like to thank everyone for all of their efforts on the day. With special thanks to the head chef, Mario, Roberto, Antonino, and Enzo.
We would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking to host an event (Wedding or otherwise) in Sorrento, the hotel is beautiful and will definitely not disappoint.
