We only booked this hotel on the reviews on Tripadvisor. As we wanted to go half-board we really wanted to make sure the hotel we chose was renowned for providing exellent food. We weren't disappointed. There was suffiicient choice to suit all tastes. One evening I asked for something completely different that was not on the menu (it was ony because I was so full from lunctime and wanted something light in the evening) and without any hesitation was told that wouldn't be a problem.
Before we travelled we did read about having a seaview room and did try to upgrade. Unfortunately there were none available. When we arrived and saw the seaview rooms didn't appear to have any sun on their balconies during the day, we were rather pleased we didn't upgrade. The views from the pool, restaurant and garden areas are truly amazing and personally you're spending more time in these areas then in your room. .Admittedly the rooms were not huge, but adequate for what we needed and comfortable.
It's just a short stroll into the centre which we personally think is much needed due to the wonderful food that is consumed throughout the stay at the hotel.
The hotel is also conveniently situated 5 mins walk from the train station which takes you to Pompeii or Herculaneum.
We fell we chose very well for our first trip to Sorrento and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience of our visit.
