What a stunning hotel and location this is. The town of Sorrento itself is gorgeous and we would definately go back. The staff were very friendly and we were very impressed with the bus service to and from the hotel. We visited Capri and had lots of fantastic walks.
We often go with Thomson Gold and rely on the entertainment team to entertain us as we know this is part of our package. However this year we couldn't help but feel dissapointed. The team were pleasant enough but there didn't seem to be that extra va va voom and energy like we've seen before. One of the girls couldn't help but call us "my little darlings" constantly, which was slightly patronising to say the least.
The music some of them sang was far too modern at the best of times. We're not a very modern couple and i'm not entirely sure of what's in the charts today. A lot of the cabarets we saw were very much this and i had no idea what songs they were singing, the other girl in particular. We do love a bit of musical Theatre but there wasn't a lot of this. We loved the Mamma Mia show although we had seen this before at another hotel and it was a lot better there. We also loved the West End show.Apart from this it was all something and nothing. A lot of Karaoke singing and guitars. We would go to Italy again but not sure We'd go Thomson Gold if the entertainment stays poor!
