“Excellent holiday cannot fault this hotel or staff”
Reviewed 21 June 2010

We have just returned from a most enjoyable week (4th - 11th June) in the Grand Hotel Vesuvio (our second visit) and hope to come again for a third time before too long. We cannot fault the hotel. from the reception to the staff in the lovely restaurant, eveyone was friendly and efficient. Nino his usual cheerful self making us laugh (a favourite with my grandson the last time we came). We also enjoyed the music every evening a pleasant end to a perfect day. Mille Grazie

Another excellent holiday in this super hotel.
Once again Nino and all his restaurant staff made us feel very welcome nothing was too much, "menu, what menu?"
Every day another surprise, if its a great dessert you're looking for see Nino!
The dining room is his stage and he is certainly the leading man!
See you in September!!

Our 10th visit to Grand Hotel Vesuvio, Sorrento. We love Italian culture, food, wine, wonderful countryside & lovely views along the coast. This hotel is well positioned for lovely views across the bay of Naples and easy access into the main town, either walking or via the regular 'free' shuttle bus into Sorrento. Hotel is very spacious in the restuarant, bar and pool area (40 meter swimming pool). Nino (restaurant manager) is especially full of Italian character and very entertaining - a huge asset to the hotel and no doubt one of the reasons people return 'year after year' - as is Franco (bar manager) who 'charms' his customers and makes the most amazing cocktails. We love this hotel and would recommend it wholehartedly.

Just have returned from a great holiday at this hotel.its has a wonderful view and staff to go with it.nonio and his assistant franco run a friendly well run dinning room food is good and the breakfast is fine but the dinner even better.the bar staff are friendly and give good service.Prices of beer wine etc are high but that applies to all hotels in italy . the pool snack bar is a joy to go to nonio is allways welcoming and the staff are fine as well. somebody has said the pool is on the small side i dont agree it is fine, rooms though small are spotless and well cleaned by the housekeeping staff and facilities in the rooms are of a good it is a fine hotel and well worth four stars.

The hotel is situated few km away from Sorrento. There were regular shuttle buses between the city center and the hotel, but only till 22.00 - or something like this.

The rooms overlooking the bay are very nice; there is a nice balcony with a wonderful view. But some rooms (like my own) are overlooking....a big wall. My room had a large terrace, but in front of my terrace was a wall, at least 3 m tall. In the same time, the walls between my terrace and the terrace from the left room and the right room were 1 m tall, so you could see everything on your neighbor terrace.

The bathroom was very large, but it was looking old.

There is no difference between the king size bed and the double bed. My room, a double one, had 2 beds one near the other, with 2 sheets. The rooms with king size bed had also 2 beds put one near another, but with a single sheet over them. The rooms are looking out-of-date.

The swimming pool is little, and does but look modern.

The hotel has a very nice terrace at the bar, where you can drink something and admire the view. Wonderful view!

Overall opinion: rusty and unfashionable. You can find better hotels in Sorrento, at the same price. At least, better location.

We've now stayed at the Grand Vesuvio many times and can only say it's our most favourite hotel anywhere in Europe. From the stunning views to the overall ambiance of the place, we cannot fault it. Nino, Franco and all their staff are nothing if not courteous, attentive and ever ready for a laugh and a joke. From reading other, less positive reviews, I find it hard to understand what could have gone wrong. I can only assume it would be the way other visitors react to the staff. We recommended the hotel to my wife's sister and her family also came away with the same feelings about the place and have re-visited since.

My family and I stayed in this hotel as part of a 3 day tour, the location was a little out of the main hub but this was overcome by the complementary shuttle bus that had you into the town area after a scenic 10 minute drive. The rooms that we had were enormous, clean and had beautiful views but what really stood out at this hotel was the excellent quality of staff, in particular the staff in the restaurant. My daughter was unwell and not up to attending dinner so the staff arranged a light meal and a bowl of fresh fruit and took it to her in her room, the following morning they kindly enquired after her health and asked if she required breakfast in her room, little gesture like this make such a difference.
