Myself and my wife have just returned from a 7 night stay at the Palazzo Montefusco. We booked it based on the fantastic reviews that had been posted on TripAdvisor. We were not dissapointed! Ivan the owner is the heart and soul of this hotel. He lives and breathes customer excellence and the well being of his guests and this is a shared view with his wife Fabiana and the rest of the team Lina, Giovanni, Marika and Seraphena. From the first moment we arrived and Giovanni met us to help with our luggage we knew we were going to enjoy our stay. The hotel is cleverly set out right in the centre of busy Sorrento but you wouldnt know it once you are in the confines of the shared courtyard. The rooms are light bright and airy even tho we chose the smallest room on offer we still had enough space for our 7 nights. All the modern facilities are there and we were loaned an iron so that we could press clothes when we needed to. The bed was a little hard for me but there was a solution to hand in that the qulited throw that was in the wardrobe provided a softer addition to the hard mattress. As a 6 footer i found the very modern shower cubicle a bit tight but it was no big deal. We had a small balcony and many a night we had a glass of bubbly in hand just watching the world go by below us. Breakfasts are amazing and you can graze for 2 hours easily whilst talking to Ivan and the staff and also the other guests. We met two lovely couples whilst there for 7 nights - Mike & Ann from Rhode Island and Reagan & Susan from Brisbane. It was such an easy place to talk to people and end up as friends. As mentioned the food at breakfast was amazing and this is down to Giovanni and Seraphena. My wife now has a new found love of Machiato's because of our stay. Lina and Marika usually work split shifts so you see Lina in the mornings and Marika in the evenings and both provide an excellent service making enquiries on your behalf, making restaurant reservations, booking taxis or beach passes etc. and you know that they all really enjoy working their and its more of a vocation than a job. The hotel have a rigid inflatable and I highy recommend that you rent it for the day but request that Ivan takes you out in it as he is an excellent skiper and shows you all the good stuff that the bay of Sorrento has to offer. Shopping is plentiful around the hotel and this is one time we have come back with more than we went with as we normally resist. Restaurants are a plenty from Michelin starred (IL Bucco) to the those that should be starred (Tasso Bar and Restaurant, Carusso's). I have to make a final word about Ivan - he makes this place tick. This is not his main job its more of an interest but we think that he would love to do it full time. The guy is just so friendly and patient (he kept helping me with my basic Italian) and he and the rest of the team are now friends and we will definitely be back and have already been talking about when we can go again and see more of Sorrento and the Amalfi coast. Ivan keep doing what you do my friend and you will continue to make everyones holidays at Pallazo Montefusco an experience they will never forget! A Piu Tardi l'amico!
