We stayed at the hotel for 10 days coinciding with our wedding in Sorrento and had a lovely relaxing holiday, we were sad to leave.
We travelled with our 12 month old son, both sets of parents and lots of friends, who all loved the hotel. Friends who didn't stay at the hotel regretted it after seeing the views, the sun deck and paying a lot for taxis.
The service received from all staff was very good, the waiters, room cleaner and reception all went out of their way to help. The waiters loved our baby and made a real fuss of him, the high chair was always waiting and mess just disappeared:)
Pictures of the hotel do not do it justice. The views out to the bay of Naples are sensational, everyday our sea view changed with a different cruise ship or cloud cover lifting over Vesuvius and Naples.
The sun deck was like something from James Bond, a great place to relax and swim from.
The hotel exudes old school glamour in a non pretentious way.
The location was perfect, it's a 10 minute flat walk in to the main square, Piazza Tasso. It's also in a quiet area, almost residential, an opposite a lovely children's play ground.
Our suite was spotlessly clean and contrary to other reviews very nice. The bathroom was also large with a separate shower and bath. The room was in the cliffs and had a large terrace. Our guests stayed in sea view and standard rooms. The standard rooms don't overlook the road so are still quiet, but the sea view is amazing!
We will definitely be returning to this hotel, we are well travelled and have stayed in a range of accommodation ranging from campsites andhostels to 5 star hotels. We know for a hotel to be special it needs more than luxury and this hotel has it, views, excellent service with friendly staff, the sun deck, amazing breakfasts, relaxing atmosphere and a great location.
we had lots of visitors to the hotel during our stay a
