Grand Hotel La Favorita
Ranked #7 of 100 Hotels in Sorrento
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 July 2012

We stayed at Hotel La Favorita for our honeymoon and were treated excellent from when we arrived. Our cases were taken to our room, which was very nice and big, it had a lovely tiled floor, huge double bed, mini bar and was lovely and light. On the ceiling there was a lovely piece of artwork which made it apprear that you could see the sky, very nice.

On arriving in our room there was a bottle of prosecco waiting for us which we shared on the balcony. Our room was at the side of the hotel and we had a great view.

We also received a free drink token each to use at one of the bars within the hotel. We were also provided with a pass to get free towels each day the pool. The pool was wonderful, as you will see from the pictures, it is on the roof and has a wonderful view of Vesuvius and the Bay of Naples. We had something to eat at the pool bar when we arrived. we both ordered a pizza, expecting a warmed up frozen type, but we got a gorgeous home made pizza and were waited on too. The price of the food and drinks were reasonable.

The staff in the hotel were very attentive and very polite, making you feel very welcome.

Breakfast was great and there was a huge choice each day.

The decor in all if the hotel is delightful and the lobby bar was very nice. My husband and I had our free drink there and also had a cocktail each, very nice and not a bad price.

The hotel is in a great location, 5 minutes from Tasso Square and about 10minutes to Marina Grande.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the side of the hotel opposite the Imperial Hotel

Let me first of all say that The Grand Hotel La Favorita is an outstanding hotel, and warrants it's 4 star general rating. The whole of the staff, from management to cleaners are extremely attentive and very helpful. There was no time during our two week stay that they did not fall over backward to make our holiday one to remember.
Having said that we did have a problem on our first night, the room 304 had an extremely bad damp water smell that would not go away. The next morning the hotel were reluctant for several hours to move us to a more pleasant smelling room. It was not until our holiday rep got involved that the hotel finally found that they could move us.
One other negative in the hotel was the wi-fi connection.. the only way I can describe this is appalling, speed, method of connecting, and constantly dropping out. It was nearly ok if using with mobile phone, but laptop or tablet, were so affected and almost unusable. The wi-fi system did not seem to have the bandwidth to cope with the number of users. When down loading short emails it was like watching paint drying.
In fairness to the hotel they did say they would try to improve the system later in the year. Lets see eh... let me know. :-)
Right... now on to the food and the dinning area, this can be described as an extremely pleasant area, with an array of very tasty and well prepared food, again ALL the staff were so helpful and attentive, nothing was too much trouble to serve you, congratulations and thanks to them all.
The room service and maids were also extremely good too, even turned down the beds in the evenings, while we were out.
The pool area on the roof was also well looked after, pleasant bar and food staff. The pool attendant was always on hand for setting up your sunbed and umbrella, also keeping the pool area clean and safe, plus giving towels out when needed.
What more can I say... other than I can really recommend this as a fantastic hotel.
Well done to all the staff at The Grand Hotel La Favorita ....Sorrento Italy.

Room Tip: Don't ask for room 304...!!!

I want to start by saying a Big thank you to all the staff at La Favorita. We recently married in Sorrento and had 60 of our guests come to La Favorita for our wedding reception / Party and it was amazing, the most beautiful day ever. The Hotel / staff were very accomodating and couldn't do enough for us to ensure we had the perfect day. The reception was perfect, the food was amazing and the views were breath taking! all in all we had the most wonderful and perfect day we could have ever dreamed off and the this was down to the staff at La Favorita.
We used Alessandra from The Book of Dreams to plan our wedding and between Alessandra and the Staff at La Favorita everything ran smoothly and was better than we ever imagined! I want to say a special thank-you to Roberto and Mario who managed the wedding and assisted with anything we required! with out you guys and Alessandra we could not have arrange the perfect wedding!
Our guests loved every second and have all said they will be returning imparticular to your beautiful hotel.
We will be back every year to celebrate our special day and memories we share with you.
We have been to Sorrento 4 times now and La Favorita is by far the best hotel In Sorrento! it offers everything you wish for to make the perfect, relaxing holiday. The staff are first class, the decore is first class and food is first class...La Favorita is freindly and welcoming and we will be telling anyone we know who wants to visit Sorrento to stay here.
Thanks again for the most amazing day of our lives!!

It's all been said before, great hotel made special by a first class team.
Two comments - first we could hear the neighbouring rooms plumbing and in particular shower/loo wate pipe.
The Wifi kept dropping throughout our stay.
Overall we would recommend everybody to stay here as it is perfect for a visit to Sorrento.

With 4 weeks notice we booked here for our honeymoon. Returned today :o(

The staff were, I felt, a little reserved at first, however, they became more friendly as time went on, I think it's just that some guests like to keep their distance and so as soon as they know you like to chat then they do. The rooms were absolutely stunning, beautiful tiling everywhere, gorgeous Sorrento pottery and other artefacts dotted around. Even the lifts were something to behold ! Our bed was absolutely enormous. Cleanliness was second to none, spotless with a lovely cleaning lady.

The pool setting is probably one of the best I've ever seen, a lovely pool, not enormous, but then it's such a select hotel there was very rarely more than a handful of people in there. It's on a roof terrace filled with lovely potted plants and with a stunning view of Vesuvius and The Bay of Napoli. Eating area with lovely seating arranged and lit at night next to the pool.

Location is perfect, right in Sorrento. No shuttles needed to visit the numerous restaurants, shops. Train station 10 mins walk away. Nightlife sounds shut out with electronic shutters, as is the light. It gets very very warm, air conditioning fantastic.

We did feel a little awkward having our terrace right opposite someone else's kitchen in the opposite building, but then a lot of Sorrento is like this. Also we do realise we booked with just a few weeks notice so I'm sure you could request a view if wanted. We were rarely on the terrace to be honest. Food mostly the same at breakfast but wonderfully presented and lots of it. You can eat it out on the tables dotted around the citrus garden, words cannot describe how lovely this was.

Overall if your looking for a Kiss me Quick, throwing peeps in the pool and having bellowing brits in the bar don't go there. If you're looking for a smooth and classy break in a beautiful hotel with breathtaking views and lovely staff then it's for you. We will go again without doubt.

Rather new (either built or renovated totally in 2010 or 2011) so it's crisp & new feeling but with all the Sorrento seaside but upscale charm! The rooms have hand-painted murals on ceiling of the sky/birds, marble flooring everywhere, posh lounging bar area for sipping prosecco at night, great buffet breakfast and charming rooftop pool overlooking the city. The staff was also friendly and helpful with morning and evening greetings that seemed authentic and not forced. Exellent location too, right around corner from great beach club options like MareMeo beach. Want to go back!

The favorita is a beautiful place in a beautiful town. We had a room overlooking the water. We stayed here as part of an Insight Tour. It had blue and white tiles throughout the hotel and the rooms were large. The breakfast was outstanding. However, the bacon in all the hotels was raw. Couldn't understand it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the front of the hotel.
