Just returned yesterday from a 7 night stay at this hotel. This is the third time we have stayed at this hotel over the last 10 years. Sometimes going back to a place you have enjoyed in the past can be a disappointment, but not this one. Just as good as it has always been. Fabulous views and rooms, lovely public areas, the swimming pool is fantastic and the outside space is beautiful and well maintained. We always opt for a full sea view on the 6th floor, fantastic, well worth paying the extra for. The staff are friendly and very helpful, nothing too much trouble. The location of the hotel is superb. You have the tranquil setting of the hotel at the rear with pool, gardens and beautiful view over the bay of Naples, yet you can walk to the busy Sorrento Centre in under 5 minutes, the train station (which we used to visit Pompeii) is 5 minutes walk, the buses also stop outside the train station (which we used to visit Positano and Amalfi) we got the hydrofoil back from Amalfi straight to Sorrento's port which again is only 10-15 minute walk from the hotel or you can use a bus to take you up the hill. The first two times we visited this hotel we came with our teenage sons and we all enjoyed it and this year we came as a couple and had a fabulous time. Suits all ages. Will definitely be back.
