We've just returned from a very relaxing week at Grand Hotel La Favorita. The hotel is immaculately clean and tidy. The staff were very welcoming and made us feel special.

As we were a party of three we were given a corner room. I can't comment on the others but this one was excellent. Plenty of space, even with the two double beds. Our balcony was huge, so much so that I measured it. Ten yards across the front of the room and seventeen yards (yes 17 yards) along the side. We felt a bit guilty about having all the space to ourselves! The pool is quite small but plenty big enough for the number of people using it and the sun loungers were a bit busy, but we always got one when we wanted.

There was an excellent selection of fare at breakfast. We never did managed to try all of the different types of cakes, biscuits and pastries on offer and believe me we did give it our best shot! We never went to the inside bar but visited the rooftop one every night. We ate there one night as well and the food was excellent. The wine and beer were reasonably priced but at €9 the cocktails were a little expensive, but when your on holiday you don't mind too much.

The location was ideal; on a relatively quiet side street but just a minute's walk from the bustling street stalls and shops and as many places to eat as you could ever want. As anyone who has been to Sorrento will know, there is not much of a beach, but if you do want to swim in the sea then the top of the path down to the beach area is less than 2 minutes away. My tip is to walk down but take the lift (€1) back up again if your not feeling athletic.

Overall it was a great week. I'm not sure if this hotel would be ideal for families with younger kids as it is quiet with an emphasis on relaxing, but that was exactly what we were looking for. It's not cheap either. This is certainly not a budget hotel, but as an annual treat to me and my family it was great.

Room Tip: I definiteily would recommend a corner room on the third floor

My husband and I recently stayed here and had a fabulous time. The hotel is fantastic - great service all round, exeptionally clean and well maintained, perfect location, amazing views from the rooftop bar/restaurant and pool and lovely spacious rooms/bathrooms. There was a wonderful choice at breakfast and the rooftop restaurant is well worth a visit for both the food and the views. I have already recommended this hotel to family and friends, and we would definitly stay again if we returned to Sorrento.

Room Tip: Our room was on the lowest floor with a terrace, but no view apart from the gardens, however it was...

This hotel is new and modern. It is the most beautiful hotel I've stayed in! The service was excellent, the breakfast was great and the rooftop is great for pre dinner bottle of wine! The room was great in blue and white and comfortable beds. The location can not get any better! Although we did not have one,a room with an ocean view balcony would be awesome. (All rooms have a balcony).

We arrived to a warm welcome in a beautifully cool reception. Our room was not ready, so we were taken up to the rooftop bar and given free prosecco by the pool while we waited, admiring the views of the sea and Vesuvius and surrounding rooftops and mountains. Our room (for 3) was huge - as was the bathroom. Tiled floors and great air-con made it a welcome haven from the blistering heat outside. Flat screen TV with 8 English channels (when hiding from the heat), mini fridge and safe, nice toiletries and balcony overlooking garden. We were on 1st floor and the road was beyond the little garden but we had no noise problems and did not feel we were missing out by not being higher up.
All the staff were fantastic and could not do enough for us. Carmine the waiter remembered where we preferred to sit for breakfast (in the garden) and what we wanted to drink. Paulo by the pool was ever ready to move umbrellas for us, and everyone greeted us with a smile and - a friendly wave from reception as we came in and out.
The location could not be improved upon. You can step out into the old town to meander through the tiny streets, or wander down to the old harbour for dinner. This was the perfect hotel for us in a beautiful town.

Room Tip: Room 112 was gorgeous!

I wish I could review my stay at La Favorita, however 2 weeks before departure I received an email to be told that due to a 'computer booking error' they did not have a room for us and instead we were being transferred to the Hilton Sorrento. I spent many stressful hours over several days trying to sort this out, as we specifically wanted to stay in a traditional Italian hotel and not a corporate chain. However as it was high season, everywhere else was fully booked. I discovered a review on trip advisor back in May, where this had happened to someone else, therefore I will leave you to your own conclusion as to whether this was a booking error, or just a way to maintain full occupancy and offload business to the Hilton. We were offered a complimentary dinner at La Favorita during our holiday, which we took advantage of. The restaurant was on the roof, with a great view, but in all honesty, the food was very average and the service was just so, so. The Hilton on the other hand, was superb in every way.

Dear Valued Guests,

We received your review on our hotel and we thank you!

We are sorry for getting you transferred to the Hilton Sorrento but what happened to you is not our fault, trust us; since last March we are having serious problems with our computers and when we realize of our over booking situation was too late! The only thing to do was to find a good and nice accommodation for our coming guests.
That was what we have done for you: the Hilton hotel was the only one in the area which offered us available rooms; our intention was not to maintain full occupancy or to offload business to the Hilton, but only to find out a nice room for our clients.
We are sorry you remained not satisfied with our restaurant but we consider your comments either positive or negative they should be, an occasion to improve.
Please give us another chance by choosing our hotel for your future holiday in Sorrento and we will do our best for you.
Best Regards.

Last year in July I visited Sorrento with my wife and stayed at Grand Hotel President which was recommended by my travel agent (i wrote a separate review on this). During that stay we walked by Grand Hotel La Favorita and remarked that if we ever returned to Sorrento, this would be a great place to stay because of its location.

Well, my family just returned from a 7 nights stay at La Favorita and am glad to tell you that we made the RIGHT choice of hotels. The location is unbeatable, right in the heart of Sorrento, nearby to so many restaurants, cafes and shops. Our room was a decent size (triple room) and for the three of us, we did not feel cramped at all. The decor of the hotel with its white marble and sofas were majestical and grand (especially on 2nd floor) with a nice pool on the 4th floor. rooftop. The food was good and the service of staff was efficient and friendly. The only complaint was that for the first 3 days the free Wi-Fi in the hotel was very slow but after my wife talked to the reception staff, they sent someone to fit a mini-router in our room which improved the connection greatly. Overall, a really nice hotel to stay in which made our vacation so much enjoyable. This is a hotel worth returning to next year!!
