Many people say that European hotels haven't really caught up with their counterparts in the rest of the world. However, the Hilton Sorrento Palace is, without a doubt, an exception to that rule. Nestled in a cliff overlooking the beautiful Bay of Naples, the hotel is top-notch in terms of service and facilities. Walking into the spacious, modern lobby, I knew I was in for a pleasant stay. The front desk was extremely helpful (they had a spare US converter on hand as I had forgotten to bring mine; they also helped me sort out a scheduling issue with my transfer to the Naples airport). Rooms were bright and sunny -- some have complained about the color scheme. Yes, it's festive; but this is a resort town! I found the room to be very nice; comfortable, modern bathroom, nice shower amenities as well. But best yet was the amazing view from my balcony (I'd been upgraded from a rear-view room).
The pool area was great -- certainly exceeded my expectations. Huge multi-leveled pool with plenty of chairs set around it for basking in the sun. My only issue was that the water was ice cold; definitely too cold to swim in in late May. There's also a very beautiful indoor pool area (water was cold there too, though).
The hotel is located about a 10-minute walk from the center of town. It's a pleasant walk and perfectly safe, even at night. The hillside location affords the hotel a bit of serenity - close enough to the town, but far enough away to feel quiet and peaceful. There are hotel shuttles to/from several restaurants in town. If at all possible, avoid taking a taxi in Sorrento as they are heinously expensive.
I'd stay here again in a heartbeat it and when I return to Sorrento!
