We stayed here in early June of 2013. If I'm writing this a year later, it's because it was without a doubt the best placed we stayed in our 3 weeks in Italy. I was feeling guilty about not giving this place the rave review that it deserves, but seeing all of the "excellent" reviews, I don't know if they need yet another one, which this is.
The rooms were very nice, but what I'll remember the most are the breakfasts. Incredible! Homemade. Best quality ingredients. Pies, breads, meats, fresh cheese... I would go back just for the breakfasts, and to sit on the terrasse...
The grounds are also incredible. Driving or walking up to this place, through the lemon groves...
Some people say that it's a little far from the centre of Sorrento or the train station to walk. We did both, but I like walking. Sorrento is about 20 minutes by foot. You'll probably walk around more in Sorrento itself than you will getting there. Some restaurants have shuttles to the hotel. If I didn't want to walk, then I'd probably take one of those. Or rent a scooter while I'm there.
One thing you've got to see, if you are there in the summer... the fireflies in the gardens and especially along the path (not the road) that takes you from the hotel to the main street in town. Bring a small flashlight as the path is not as well lit as it could be.
