We agree 100% with most of the wonderful reviews! The location/view was to die for, and the hotel itself was lovely and clean, although nothing luxurious. Those crazy towels--we felt like we were drying off on table linens :) Dino was super nice and helpful. The shuttle was very helpful. Overall we were very happy with our choice.
The restaurant, however, we must take exception to. The breakfast was fine and as mentioned by prior posters, the freshly squeezed orange juice is outstanding. However the one dinner we tried to eat there was simply awful.In fact it was the worst meal we tried to eat in all of Italy, and was inedible even though we hadn't eaten since early morning and were prepared to eat the tablecloth if necessary. We have had many kinds of fish prepared many different ways in many different countries, but I was literally unable to eat the fish. The waitress was rather ugly about it when she noticed I had not eaten it, even though I took pains to be pleasant and just stated "it's not to my taste" without any criticism. Enough about that- must have been a bad night or bad fish I guess.
The notice: Dino had been kind enough to email me in advance about where we might leave our luggage at the Naples or Sorrento train stations.Long story short--the train station cafe that used to handle "left luggage" no longer does & we found this out trying to leave luggage there. We found a solution....but the time it took prevented us from being able to day trip to Capri and still catch our transportation out of Sorrento that evening. Of course Dino had no way of knowing this, but I did want to warn travelers that there is no left luggage at the Sorrento station, so make other arrangements.In our case, when we asked, the shuttle driver kindly agreed to keep our luggage and return with it at 3:30 so we could catch our bus- but then someone forgot and it was a panic with Dino's wife making a special rush trip down the mountain with our luggage! So very good intentions and most things ended well, but if we'd known in advance about the Sorrento station we wouldn't have missed out on Capri.
