My wife and I stayed here for 2 weeks on our honeymoon recently (September 2012) and we thought this hotel was fantastic! We were sold on the fantastic cliff top location offering superb views of the Bay of Naples & Vesuvius or Vesuvio if you're Italian!
Location - only 5-10 mins walk to Piazza Tasso (Sorrento's main square).
Cleanliness - Hotel was immaculate at all times, our room was cleaned everyday by 10am (Grazie Rosa!)
Food - Top class, we stayed on a half board basis and the evening meal was very impressive every night, always different food/selections - No buffet here!!!
Beach / Pontoon – What a great way to spend your day, listening to the waves and watching the boats and cruise ships come and go! The Lifeguard (Bagnino) / Bar attendant was a chap called Ferdinando and he was a top bloke, saved our sunbeds for us everyday and was always up for a chat and a laugh!
Staff – Always very friendly, definitely a plus point!!!
Everything is chargeable, there are no freebies here!!! Safety deposit was €3 per night as was Wifi (also €3 per day).
If you are B&B only then the evening meal would be quite pricey (3 courses for €50pp not including wine or water) so for 2 people with an average bottle of wine and water it would be €125!
No honeymoon upgrade! - Our room overlooked Sorrento Football Club (not a problem if you like football), although we did get the top floor which was a sort of upgrade! I suppose you only get what you pay for, I imagine if we was anywhere else in the world we would have been upgraded but as I have alluded to earlier, everything is chargeable.....
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Grand Hotel Ambasciatori, we would definitely come back but maybe only for BB and then explore more of Sorrento's bars/restaurants for dinner!.
