My husband and I have just returned from a week's holiday in Sorrento staying at the above hotel. The view from the room was fantastic -however we did pay extra for the sea view. The room was very good - very spacious and the bed was huge. There were lots of hangers in the wardrobe area which accommodated all our clothes. The shower in the bathroom was not very good. Perhaps the shower needs a little updating. There was a safe in the hotel which you did not have to pay for - which was a bonus.
However if part of your holiday experience is the food you are presented with, I would suggest that you do not choose the half board option. For a 4* Hotel the food presented in the evening was very poor. There was an A La Carte Menu for the hotel but we were not presented with this but a completely separate menu each evening. The food was tasteless and boring with limited choice. The sweets were disappointing (no tiramisu was offered all week) and if choosing ice cream we were not given a choice of flavours but just presented with 2 scoops of their choice. We did feel that we had been treated as 'the poor relations' being on a half board package. The breakfast offered in the mornings was also disappointing. There was a poor selection of fruit -only two choices and most often it came out of a tin or was the leftovers from the night before. The cooked food offered at breakfast again was only two choices and of poor quality. I do not understand why this hotel has a 4* rating - the food definitely was not four star quality. On a more positive note the staff were always friendly and polite.
