This hotel is absolutely superb! The hotel is furnished beautifully, the views across the bay of naples stunning, staff are very pleasant, swimming pool delightful, rooms spotlessly clean, but to top it off the food is simply out of this world!
Breakfast was an experience to behold. Beautifully laid out, more than you needed to choose from; cereals, yoghurts, cheeses, fruits, hams, cold meats, alongside the more traditional "fried" breakfast type foods and eggs that are cooked for you as you would like them, in any way you wanted.
I would absolutely recommend half board for this hotel. Normally I like to visit local restaurants when I'm on holiday but the food in this hotel outshone any of the local restaurant food.
For half board you get a choice of three of four starters, main course, dessert, with beautiful olives and salads and breads. Everything comes served on silver platters and the choice is amazing. The wine list is extensive and caters for all different tastes and price ranges. Obviously this isn't included in the cost, but the whole thing of coming to dinner and choosing which wine from their extensive wine cellar each night made it really special. I absolutely could not fault it.
I very much look forward to returning to this hotel in future, I can't imagine a better one in Sorrento!
