“Wonderful Hotel, Beautiful Views, Great Staff”
Reviewed 23 June 2012

My partner and I returned yesterday from a fabulous stay at the hotel gran paradiso. I could not recommend the hotel more. The staff, rooms and pool area were all fantastic and the views spectacular. We had a top floor sea facing room, from which we could view the entire bay in all it's beauty - hazy mountains to the right, Sorrento town to the right, and Mount Vesuvius straight ahead. This definitely makes the short but steep climb up and down the road to the hotel well worth it. There is also an hourly courtesy bus which takes guests into Sorrento and back to the hotel - and the driver's skills are second to none!

Any problems we had were dealt with professionally and efficiently by the hotel reception team. Massimmo in particular was extremely welcoming and eager to help with any queries. Nothing was too much trouble! On our first night we were told that the sea view room we had requested was unavailable and so were asked to take a room looking onto the back of the hotel, with the promise of moving the following day. We were happy to do this and were gifted a bottle of champagne for our trouble which was very kind. The next day Massimmo approached us personally with the keys to our upgraded room, which we couldn't have been more happy with!

The hotel food was always delicious and the restaurant staff were excellent - very smartly turned out and friendly. Breakfast was a simple buffet which suited our needs perfectly. There was a wide range of delicious pastries and biscotti as well as breads and cereals. There was also cooked choice of scrambled eggs and bacon which looked lovely.

The pool was perhaps the best part of the hotel, where there was always a relaxed atmosphere no doubt helped by the fantastic weather and beautiful surroundings. I have already recommended the hotel to my friends and family and we look forward to visiting again soon!

Room Tip: Choose a sea view or mountain view room.

What can i say? What lovely staff, friendly and so happy to help. The room was amazing, with a fantastic view of the swimming pool and of course the sea! Although a good 20 minutes walk into Sorrento, the free shuttle buses are regular and much appreciated!!My partner and I came for our first holiday alone since having our boy 2 years ago. It was everything we wanted and more. The pool was great and the breeze from the hotel was amazing too in the gorgeous heat! Alberto was extremely helpful when asking for advice on eating out and as said before, all staff were really happy and helpful. We would definately come back here, great value for money and great to be out the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy the wonderful views. Couldnt speak highly nough of it. Jocelyn & Stuart

Just returned from our holiday at Gran Paradiso and have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to our friends and anybody who reads this review.We had to rearrange our original booking due to illness and Alberto the owner could not have been more helpful in assisting us.Once we arrived we could see why this hotel was praised by so many guests. Very impressed with the style of the hotel being minimalistic with striking art work spread around the hotel.
Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff whether reception/dining room/bar staff or shuttle driver together with the maid service who kept our room spotless and yet I never saw her.
Both my wife and I thank all involved for making us feel special and our stay so enjoyable and hopefully we will visit again some other time.

We just got back from staying at the gran paradiso for our honeymoon. The staff were so friendly and seemed to genuinely care about the guests. The rooms were clean and modern. A sea-view is a MUST because our room was "cliff facing" and although we had a balcony there was not point sitting out there because we just had netting and corrugated iron to look at but this didn't matter because we sat in the restaurant (food delicious EVERY night, and varied choices too) or the bar (delicious cocktails but €7.50 each- beats €8.50 in sorrento though) or by the pool itself (amazing views and pool completely spotless every single day). Only have one 4/5 and that was for location because it's on top of a hill and walking up is tiring and unsuitable for wheelchair users etc but the shuttle bus is regular and reliable.
We cant wait to go back. Best hotel ever!

Dear MrsHawkes,

Thank you very much for writing about us.

It is a pleasure to read that you have enjoied your stay with us, we are planning other refurbishments during next winter also for standard rooms.

I would like to confirm that our food is cooked to order and served hot by our team. Also I would like to remember you that we do provide happy hours where a cocktail costs 5 Euros.

Unfortunately we know that we are on top of a hill, in order to best enjoy the views over the Bay of Naples, but to avoid to walk downtown we do provide a shuttle bus service free of charge 12 times a day.

I hope to welcome You again in our hotel in the future,

Yours sincerely,

Alberto

Ciao!

We have just returned from a week in beautiful Sorrento. Our stay at the Art Gran Paradiso Hotel was thoroughly enjoyable and we would recommend to anyone. The hotel staff are friendly and accommodating. The restaurant offers a selection of food and all was superb. The lunch menu on offer at the pool snack bar was also great.

The hotel's location offers amazing views of Vesuvius, the bay of Naples and Sorrento itself, and people should not be put off by the steep hill on which the hotel is located as there is a shuttle bus which runs regularly, throughout the day and evening, to and from the centre of Sorrento.

The hotel is modern and contemporary. There are ample faculties, a lovely pool and poolside area.

Sorrento town is great for shopping, exploring or just sitting having a coffee!! Worth visiting day and night. The island of Capri is well worth a visit, it has amazing views.

Thanks to all the staff at the hotel that helped make our holiday one to remember. We will return!
