My girlfriend spent a week here with her best friend last year and after speaking so highly of the place, we decided to choose it for our first proper holiday together (it also coincided with our one-year anniversary). And what an incredibly special place to spend our anniversary. The views are just breathtaking, the environment relaxing and the service excellent.
Although there is plenty to see in Sorrento and the surrounding areas, it is at times very difficult to remove yourself from the pool area - especially with such a stunning views on offer from its elevated position overlooking the bay of Naples.
What's more, it is well worth getting to dinner reasonably early to secure a seat outside and witness the beautiful sunset - words can't describe it. The terrace is situated perfectly for this.
The service at the hotel was excellent. The reception staff couldn't do enough for us, while the restaurant and bar staff - especially the charismatic Giuseppe - we're very friendly and efficient.
Although the buffet breakfast is modest, the lunch menu offers plenty of tasty options. We also too found the three-course dinner menus to be satisfactory although on several occasions we chose to dine out in Sorrento for a bit more variety.
The only minor complaint I would have with this hotel is the lack of double bed in the room - instead we had two single beds pushed together.
The shuttle bus service into the town was very efficient and also extremely necessary given the steep hill that the hotel is situated on. However, make sure you find out the exact return times and locations (return pick-up is different in the evening). If you miss the shuttle bus, cab drivers will sting you to the tune of €20 for what amounts to little more than a five-minute journey.
The picturesque views and overall vibe of this hotel have left a lasting impression on myself and my girlfriend - so much so that we could imagine staying anywhere else if we return to Sorrento.
