Mixed feelings about this hotel, could have so easily been perfect!
Plus points, views are breath taking, ample tables, seating, sun beds etc Large modern roof terrace area, a beautiful quiet place to sit and enjoy Sorrento lit up at night in the early season.
Away from hustle & bustle but easily accessible to Sorrento with hotel courtesy bus.
Staff are excellent, many older experienced staff who are excellent role models for the younger staff members.
Food is good, no attempt to provide English stuff - all Italian. Loosen your waistband the puddings are exceptional.
I`m writing this review a little late, we visited in May & you must be aware they do not switch on the air con till later in the season. We left England with 4 degree weather & it was 24 degrees in Sorrento. The hotel do not supply fans & we did not sleep well for the first few nights, we did seem to acclimatise later in the week but I would not visit again unless the air con was available.
If you do not pay extra for a sea view you are likely to be in a room overlooking the car Park at the rear of the hotel or be looking directly onto a wall. The room itself was large with a balcony but I was very disappointed with its position. If you can afford it pay extra for the view!
The pool is too cold, only the very brave went in during the week we were there.
