We stayed at this hotel for a week late August, this was to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary, and all I can say is what a fabulous hotel. We arrived late on the Monday evening, but there was a cold buffet waiting for us in our room and a bottle of wine and a bowl of fruit. I was a little disappointed at first as our room didnt have a sea or pool view, as we had paid extra for a superior room, but when I saw the other rooms facing the brick wall I thought thank god I did pay a little bit extra. When I saw the rooms facing the pool I was glad I didnt have one of those as you didnt have much privacy if you wanted to sit on the balcony throughout the day. You don't really need a seaview as the view from the roof terrace was out of this world.
The rooms were kept spotless and towels replaced daily, but your only allowed 1 pool towel for the week.
The food was really lovely, from the buffet breakfast through to the evening meal, could not fault it one bit, the waiters were so attentive, and 5 out of the 7 nights we were lucky to have a table out on the balcony looking out over the bay.
The waiters in the bar were really nice, always checking to see if anyone needed a drink and providing nuts and nibbles.
The Thomson staff were really helpful from Lee and Marcia the holiday advisors through the entertainment staff, nothing was too much trouble.
The walk around Sorrento with Desiree was good, but was just a bit of advertising for the local shops and restaurants to get you to go back and spend some money there. It is a fair trek into town by foot, but the hotel does provide the coach to ferry you back and forth.
The evening entertainment was excellent if you like West End Musicals.
Would definatley go back again sometime in the future.
