We celebrated our joint 121st (60th & 61st) birthdays at the Grand Royal in early May, with a drinks party on Friday evening and a sit down Gala Dinner on the Saturday for 156 guests. We were on the beautiful terrace overlooking Vesuvius and the Bay of Naples on Friday and for a drink before dinner on Saturday - a gorgeous setting. The food was of an extremely high standard; all four courses were hot and all were absolutely delicious and served to 156 people at the same time. Much better than the catering you get at large functions in London. One friend, who stayed in the area for 10 days, said it was the best meal he’d had in Sorrento. After dinner a brilliant duo played and we danced until 1.00, the bar stayed open until the last person left at about 5.00am.
Our event was a year in the planning and Denise at “Your Friend in Italy” did a great job, helping with the hotel and organising our friends who stayed in Sorrento that weekend. Many stayed in the Grand Royal or their sister hotel, the Ambasciatori and both hotels were highly praised. We stayed at the Grand Royal, our third stay there and, as before, loved it. It’s a very elegant hotel, with friendly staff who work extremely hard. The breakfasts are scrumptious, too. The event planning team, led by the director, Mr. Savarese, were unfailingly constructive and gave us a real sense that they understood us and would try really hard to give us what we wanted. They succeeded beyond our expectations. Charges were fair and very competitive with other places we considered. We can’t speak highly enough of the hotel and the staff and we’d wholeheartedly recommend the Grand Royal for any celebration - be it a wedding, birthday or anniversary. Or just for a wonderful holiday!
