We chose the Royal after doing lots of research and liked the idea of how central it was to the amenities but still a little walk away so we could get some peace at night. When we arrived the service was courteous and efficient, everything went as planned and we were given our room early as it was ready. The only concern I had about the hotel after reading various reviews was that they had an ant problem but this is not the case at all. We stayed on the 5th floor and the whole time we were there (8 days) we didn't see any ants in either our room or anywhere in the hotel and the hotel and facilities are absolutely immaculate. Breakfast can get busy so go early, the offering is fairly large with lots of pastries, fruit, hams etc. There is an area for bacon and sausage in hot holding units and you can have your eggs freshly cooked in either an omelette or scrambled style.
The views are absolutely stunning and lunch by the pool or lower beach area are very reasonably priced, its easy to get a sun bed and I did once read that you have to pay for your beds by the beach but this is not true, everything is included in the price. Overall the hotel is perfectly situated for town, the staff are very pleasant and the facilities are well maintained and clean. This hotel in my opinion is way above 4 star and we would definitely return if in Sorrento.
