What a fantastic place, but lets start at the begining,
Booked through Tomson paid for extra leg room seats and bottle of bubbly as it was my 50th birthday.
Check in at Manchester was brilliant normally a boring task but the chap on our check in desk was superb, what a joker great start (sorry didnt get his name but brilliant) Plane wasnt full but we had a full row to ourselves with loads of room (row 13 was not unlucky for us!) Our bubbly was put on ice and served when chilled the girls on board were great. Our transfer to the hotel took longer than expected due to the traffic around naples but our rep gave us usefull info on the way.Then we arrived just as the sun was setting WOW !! Sorrento beautiful !! Then came the Hotel Bristol, from entering, the service was top class, we had booked a junior suite our luggage was brought to our room and we were shown to our room by the one of the guys on the desk. Another bottle of bubbly was waiting on ice in our room. Large room with seating area, flat scereen TV great for watching the world cup ? Large balcony with sunbeds, table & chairs and then the view awsome !! Worth the extra money for the sea view plus our balcony got the sun all day didnt use the pool area although looked very nice. Meals were good lots of fish choice on evening menu loved them all. Plenty choice for breakfast and again a view to drink in all day. All the areas were relaxed and calming , clean and very well kept. Yes like every body else we did go to the little shop down the road for bottles etc and had them our balcony,Sorrento is a special place lots of little alleys with restaurants and shops tried a few through the day time all loveley and cheaper than the main square.Read about the kiosk bar on trip advisor before we went, and yes it is good value with good priced drinks and lovely coffee.The Bristol is above the Marina Grande you can walk down to it through the camp site lts quicker than you think and nice restaurants down there.Try the foreignrs club in town again good prices and views. We booked the trips to pompeii & Herculanium, were good but not enough time take the advice of everybody Do It Yourself by train, You can hire audios to guide you around and its a lot cheaper, I was amazed how big pompeii is. We also did the Amalfi drive this by coach was loveley very scenic and our guide IRIS was great , we also went on a boat (not included in price) around the bays saw some of the Villas of the rich & famous again stunning views. I would 100% go again it all exceeded my expections the only downfall was the flight home the service was not very good and our legroom seats were this time at the front NOT GOOD as people were waiting for the Toilet and the crew "hung around" in this are too, was pointless.
Not a bucket & spade holiday but go you will love it.
