This hotel is owned by Thomsons so all the guests seemed to be from the UK.
We had read reviews so were aware of any potential negatives. We were therefore not surprised by the price of drinks but bearing in mind that you were served a lovely chilled glass of white wine sitting on the fantastic roof top terrace overlooking the whole bay of Naples, served by very charming Italian waiters & accompanied by very generous bar snacks-well worth the 5 Euros (slightly less during Happy Hour!)
As we had 2 rooms for our family of 4, we decided not to choose the sea-view rooms as we would have paid £600 extra. Both of our rooms were on the 1st floor & both had plesant balconies edged with tubs of flowers.We were really happy with this & saw plenty of the sea view from all other parts of the hotel.Admittedly, some of the rooms on the lower levels did face the brick wall but we were lucky with our 2 rooms.
We really enjoyed the food-expertly served & prepared.
The Thomson staff were great-helpful without being over-bearing.
The excursions are expensive so we went to Pompeii on the local train & saved ourselves a packet!
The pool area is lovely with plenty of umbrellas & loungers.
All in all a very pleasant stay in a lovely hotel.
Musn't forget to mention our local Italian expert Desiree who gave real added value to the Sorrento experience.
