Just come back from 11 days at President Hotel Sorrento. What a stunning view. Arrived late - 10.30 p.m. and a lovely meal set up in our room for us, local ham, salad, bowl of fruit. Ordered a bottle of wine to go with it came with lots of delicious nibbles. What lovely staff, especially Tonino the courtesy coach driver, very helpful with boat, train timetables etc. Didn't have sea view room and people who did said they didn't sit out as in shade after mid-morning - might be different earlier in year. Recommend visit Pompeii and especially Herculaneum - use public transport easy and cheap - both sites free if over 65 - take your passport. Also Vesuvius visit, 20 euros from outside Pompeii railway station, much cheaper than booking a trip, fabulous at the top and a easy walk up - we are mid 60s. Evening meals good and waiter served, buffet on Thursdays - you are encouraged to make far too many trips to the serving tables! Our only "gripe" is nowhere to stroll out at night unless you take Tonino's free bus to Sorrento, last one back 11 p.m.
What a lovely holiday. Oh they also baked my husband a cake for his birthday.
