Stayed for four nights at the Hotel del Mare in mid-September. The hotel is at Marina Grande and it is a bit of a walk from the center of Sorrento, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. Marina Grande has a much more local feel to it and the walk into town takes you through some beautiful paths and walkways. Our room was clean, stylish and roomy. The hotel is very colorful with decorative tiles throughout--very nice! The rooftop terrace is a great spot to relax and enjoy views of the water. When we arrived, the man at the front desk kind of rushed us through check-in and didn't seem too interested in answering too many of our questions about the area, bus routes, etc... (Later, there was a woman at the front desk who was extremely helpful though.) We had requested a room with a view, but when we got there our room was in the basement and the only window had frosted glass so you couldn't see anything... Not a huge deal and not entirely unexpected since we booked at a lower rate... but still... Otherwise, the room was quiet, breakfast was great with freshly made coffee and plenty of food to choose from. Wifi worked okay, sometimes we had to stand in certain spots in our room to get it to work. We loved Marina Grande, with its colorful buildings, restaurants and active fishermen--it was a great spot to enjoy a nice slow pace. We would certainly stay at Hotel del Mare again if we return to Sorrento. For the price, comfort and local location it was a great choice in a great part of Italy!
