Stayed middle of October so was at the end of the season. The hotel is in a lovely location overlooking Sorrento. We didn't brave the walking down and back but used the Hotel's shuttle bus which was excellent. We stayed on half board and the food was very good, perhaps a little more choice for the evening meal would have been nice as it would probably have got repetitive if on a longer stay, but prepared and served very well. All the staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. Would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel or going back.

Room Tip: Sea View a must

I wanted to surprise my wife on her "special day" with a hill top location to get out of the city centre and an excellent view over the Bay of Naples. First 2 boxes ticked, the next was comfort, courtious attention and relaxation, all three ticked. Cleanliness, facilities and connections all passed. So very pleased with choice of hotel. The walk down is fun and not too bad on return, however, a reasonable fitness is required but the views are worth it. We went at the quiet time of year (end Oct early Nov) so it was running on a third capacity - fantastic for us as it suits our needs. The shuttle service is spot on and always on time and efficient. The breakfast was good and plentyful to suit most palates and the evening meal was of a good quality and changed everyday but not too spectacular hence only 4 spots. I would have no hestation in going back as we really loved the location, hotel and genuine hospitality just a pity the weather was "soggy" and we could not make full use of the excellent roof top bar and lounge area. Hey Ho!!!

Room Tip: Always go for the sea view rooms with balcony

We stayed at the President for our honeymoon. We were there for about 5 days - basically doing day trips around the area each day. We booked the hotel and an ocean view superior room based upon the photos we saw on their website. When we got to the hotel, we were given a room that looked nothing like the website - it was ultra modern, smaller, with the bed in the center of the room and not much room around it. Plus the bathroom was tiny. We asked to be moved to another room, which they did, however that room was just below the hotel restaurant - which they neglected to tell us before they moved us. It shouldn't have been a problem except that the floors of the entire hotel are tile and the restaurant opens at 7am. We heard everything and it was awful. We moved again (yes a 3rd time) to a lovely room but once again the tile everywhere makes the sound proofing non-existent. There are some good aspects though - the pool area is lovely and the morning breakfast is very nice. You dine overlooking the ocean with a beautiful view of Sorrento. The dinner restaurant is good - but very pricey. So is the food at the pool - and that's not anything special either. The hotel itself is situated on top of the mountain and although it's all right to walk down - it's awful to walk up. There is a hotel shuttle but we found having a car to be worthwhile. This is also not a kid friendly hotel - we didn't see one there the entire time we were there. It seemed to cater more towards older couples and that's who was mostly there. When we return to Sorrento we will not be making a return to the president.

Great hotel with fantastic views of the bay of Naples, Mount Vesuvius and Sorrento. Room was very clean and had a balcony with views over Sorrento and the Bay. The food was ok but Star ratings in Italy dont compare with the UK.

The food was a very ordinary restaurant standard, think Zizzi's and you'll be on the right track. Pool area could get a little crowded but we did visit in the height of summer. Food from the pool cafe was very good if a little simple in content.

Views from the roof at night are fantastic and its a great place to Star gaze. The rooftop jakuzzi, for me its what I call a human soup bowl, no thanks.

You can walk down to Sorrento from the Hotel it takes about 20 minutes but it can be a bit of a slog on the way up, especially if its hot.

Make sure you visit Capri, Sorrento, Ravello, Naples, Herculaneum, Mount Vesuvius and most of all the Villa Cimbrone in Ravello which is Incomparable... rising above the roses and oleanders on a plateau whence the gaze sweeps to the sea.

You will not be disappointed if you stay here only amazed at the beauty of the area. Word of warning though, Italians dont give a S**t about their cars so if you hire one be prepared for a totally reckless attitude to driving, especially from the the scooter drivers. Bring it on!

Room Tip: Get one with a view its worth the extra money.

We had a truly fantastic holiday in the summer at this superb hotel. The views are wonderful, the staff very helpful and the food fabulous - a different menu everyday of our stay.
We booked this holiday independently and worried about how it would be but we can honestly say from the minute we arrived and saw our bedroom and the view over the Bay of Naples we knew we'd fallen on our feet. The staff couldn't have been more helpful making our stay wonderful in every way.
Our bedroom was wonderful, very clean, great facilities - with tea and coffee provided as well as a fridge/mini bar.
The views are amazing; plenty to do everyday; the walk into Sorrento was not a problem and the courtesy bus an added bonus. Public transport at the top of the quiet road and plenty of footpaths to explore further afield.
We can thoroughly recommend this to everybody - fabulous!
Thank you to all the wonderful staff.
