Everything other reviewers say is true. This is a beautiful, exquisite property in the perfect location in Sorrento. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed. I'd like to give a couple of tips, though, gleaned during the 7 days my husband and I stayed there. (1) The hotel is pricey. Somewhat hesitantly, we booked a superior garden view room, which was cheaper than the standard sea view rooms. I was afraid I'd be staring at a brick wall or a parking lot, but not to worry. Ask for room 510. It has recently been remodeled. It faces a New Orleans style courtyard and could easily be called a junior suite. The floor is drop dead gorgeous turquoise tiles, the color scheme is white, turquoise and lavender and the bathroom is practically large enough for a party. The style is casual elegance. There are three french windows with three separate balconies. I saw several of the standard sea view rooms that cost more money and they didn't compare with room 510. You get plenty of the spectacular sea views in the hotel's (indoor) breakfast room and (outdoor) restaurant and cafes. (2) Second tip Don't expect to swim in the sea from the hotel's pier. All of the sea side hotels have the piers, which aren't particularly pleasant and the sea is quite dirty and choppy. Sorrento isn't the place for a beach type experience. (3) Last but not least, don't drink the water anywhere in town. After we develped bad tummies, the hotel personnel informed us that they themselves never drink the water. Use bottled water for brushing teeth, etc, and you should be fine. Sorrento is a beautiful place and the Bellevue Syrene is a great hotel
