My wife and I have just returned from our holiday at the President booking a superior sea view room from 20-30 Sept with Citalia which cost £3,389, this did include a private transfer from the airport. Their idea of a superior sea view is not what we expected, although we did have a good view of the town and a dilapidated block of flats with a side sea view, The bathroom facilities also did not work and we therefore asked to see other rooms, eventually we chose a room with improved views although mostly side sea views and a bathroom where most of the facilities worked except the extractor fan and when having a shower your feet were covered in water since the water did not drain away properly. Having booked with the Italian specialists we expected better however we shall know when booking further holidays in Italy. Hence be aware when booking a superior sea view with Citalia at this hotel, Speaking with other guests Thomson seemed a better option, at least they saw their representative who was highly regarded. After the above comments the President is generally a good hotel with good food and wine options, excellent staff and excellent views from the roof terrace, yes it is a distance from the town centre which can be walked safely on a side path although a regular bus service is provided from the hotel. Would I return to Sorrento most definitely, would I return to the President not without exhausting other hotels nearer the town centre, although I must say we had a great holiday and Sorrento is a good destination to explore the Amalfi coast.
