My husband and I stayed here for a week ,our first holiday in 4 yearsand loved every minute. The foyer is stunning as you walk in with marble floors, antique furnitue,chandeliers and a welcoming feel. Reception staff friendly and the porter whisked our bags away where they reappeared at our room at the same time as we did.We had chosen a sea view room which had a small balcony [with rather rusty railings]overlooking the bay of Naples, Capri to the left and Vesuvius to the right - definitely worth paying the extra.Always plenty of activity to see, cruise ships moor nearby and the ferries to Capri etc are always coming and going.Our room was attractive with antique style furniture and a huge plasma TV. Large bathroom en suite[taps rather shabby with chrome mostly worn off] but all very clean.We had the half board option and found eating in the lovely panoramic dining room a pleasure. Breakfast buffet good with varied choice. Dinner had excellent choices for all courses and was waiter service except one night when there was a gala buffet.The staff were pleasant and efficient. Lovely garden with lemon trees and many mature shrubs and plants.Plenty of sitting places to relax and enjoy the views. Small pool with adjacent snack bar. Internal lift takes you down to the sea side bathing area where there are plenty of loungers,parasols and tables. Beware the cost of drinks down here, we were charged 13 euro for 2 orange juices!
Short level walk into town or there are local buses that pass the hotel door.Take the train to visit Pompei and Herculanum,a cheap and easy option and the station is only 10 minute walk from the hotel. EU citizens over 65 get into these attractions free on production of passport - we photocopied ours, a safer option!
We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel for a relaxing stay in a suberb position in Sorrento.
