We stayed here for 7 nights in a standard 8th floor sea view room and absolutely fell in love with the hotel; the staff were so friendly/welcoming & helpful and the food was delicious (particularly the extensive breakfast; speaking of which why do people go abroad and expect to eat what they have at home?! Surely part of the experience of being in a different country is sampling the local food & drink?). The roof terrace was a lovely place to relax with plenty of cozy seating available and stunning views of the coastline. The pool, situated just above the roof terrace, was also lovely and was never over crowded (there was always lots of sun beds available); our only complaint was that it closed @ 6pm which we found was about an hour too early when returning from daily excursions and would have enjoyed a dip. In terms of location it is a relaxed 15 minute walk to the Piazza Tasso from the hotel and about 3-5 minutes from the edge of town. Honourable mention goes to the 'Sweet Dreams' bar which is about 3 minutes down the road towards town; a great little spot with very welcoming staff (molto grazie to Salvatore & Christian; great guys!) and superb food & drink; plus it opens into the early morning hours which is great for a late drink. We will definitely be staying here again on future visits to Sorrento!
