Situated right at the top of a cliff with views of the coast and Vesuvius. The infinity pool make the most of these in the day and the sunsets are beautiful.
The downside to this location is you are at the top of a cliff. You can't really walk to the town but there is a free bus service to and from Sorrento which solves this problem. However it sometimes leaves a few minutes early and isn't in the best condidtion, no one seems to mind people standing up when all the seats are full but this seemed a bit dangerous to me. On the whole the views from the pool and our balcony may these difficulties worth while.
The food was excellent, we were given menus at breakfast in order to pick our evening meal, service was great in the restaurant and by the pool. Half board meant we had to pay for drinks and given the location we couldn't really stock up on our own from the supermarket! They made a fair bit of money from us as it was so hot. Bottles of water held about 2 pints and cost E2.50 and soft drinks were about 4 euros.
The reception, bar, pool and restaurant areas were all great but our room looked a little "tired" and could have done with a facelift. That said the bed was comfortable and everything worked.
Service at the hotel was excellent, reception staff were good at dealing with querries and the maids were very efficient. We would pass them in the corridor on the way to breakfast and by the time we got back our room was cleaned to a high standard.
A very peaceful and relaxing hotel and a good base to explore the surrounding area from. Watch out if you hire a car- steep cliffs, Italian drivers and crowded roads mrans this can be a stressful option!
