We stayed 4 nights before moving on to southern italy. Very impressed with the hotel and its facilities also staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. A special thank you to Roland the shuttle bus driver who recommended some nice restaurants and was very friendly and also Maria Rosaria who was always there to help. ( Roland and Maria you are famous now all over the world!!!!).
The views from the hotel were tremendous -the sea, Versuvious and Sorrento day and night views superb.
Most guests were English, with about 40% not retired and just a few children in June so it was quiet and relaxing.
The road outside was bendy, steep so watch out when crossing the road to the shuttle bus which runs every hour.(Could have done with a 10.30 pm return from the town as well as the 9.30 and 11.30pm)
You can walk down a short cut path to town takes about 15-20 mins but I would not like to walk back --a bit steep for us oldies.
We were upgraded to a garden balcony. spacious modern clean room with a lovely view of mountains, greenery and the blue sea.
We loved the walk (50 m from hotel) through the garden very quiet and relaxing especially in the cool morning and evening , beautiful flowers, lemon trees and olives, grape vines and smell of lavender and seeing the locals digging up the fresh veg used in the hotel. We preferred the garden accomm. to main hotel. What i liked about this area is that most houses have large gardens of olive vine lemon etc which is nice to see.
Breakfast was very good (they do cooked stuff and I asked for freshly cooked eggs)
Sorrento is a nice town- bigger than i thought , busy and everywhere is accessible by boat to Capri, Amalfi,PositanoSalerno-Naples .They are fast and efficient-did not fancy bus.The
train to Pompei ( only a couple of euros) is well worth the trip but take plenty of water as its a hot day out)
