Just returned from a weeks stay at this hotel on a Riviera tour. Whilst I agree that the hotel is spotless, the staff very helpful and friendly I can't quite agree with the previous reviewers glowing comments.
The rooms are clean but quite dated. Our original room had a view mainly of a concrete wall but the staff did soon find us a better room. Our only slight gripe was there was a heating oil pipe running over ground below the balcony so there was often a strong waft of diesel.The balcony dividing walls are very low so there is no privacy from your neighbours.
The pool and reception areas are excellent. The dining room decor is also very pleasing.
Can't agree that the breakfast selection was great. The cereals were not great. No hot choice. The continental option was just ham and cheese. Some wonderful fresh Italian tomatoes would make all the difference. Tinned fruit too. Overall quite poor.
Dinner varied. The pasta options were generally very good. The rest was very hit and miss. Overall only average.
The location is good because of the view but quite restrictive for access to Sorrento. The courtesy bus does not run between 12:30 and 5 which is a shame. We caught the local bus back once but apparently the next two did not turn up and some fellow guests were charged 40 euros for the journey so beware! We took the shuttle into Sorrento for our last night and ate at the Foreigners club on the terrace with a table overlooking the bay. Wonderful!
Overall the hotel is very good. A few small changes could make it even better. I think it probably suits the older customer who is content to stay in the hotel every evening and not sample the atmosphere in Sorrento.
Just to say I think the previous comment about the hotel dog were a bit harsh. "Pele" is a stray that adopted the hotel about 14 years ago. He is very arthritic but the hotel feed him every day and bath him when he allows. I think the tick is actually a wart on his nose. He is obviously very content because we saw him sunbathing on the terrace most of the time we were there!
