myself, my husband and my son visited on th 7th may and we were on our honeymoon, my son is 2 yers old and we were concerned at first how he would behave and were a little anxious about the other guests in relation to them being disurbed if he had a tantrum.
how wrng we were, the staff were attentive and fussed over my son, the manager hi fived him every time he saw him as did some of the other staff, we arrived at half past ten at night and were greated with a 3 course meal as we had been "travelling all day and might be hungry", it was our honeymoon and we had a free bottle of wine, champagne, canopes and a fruit bowl which my son soon ate his way through. the staff were all fantastic, couldnt do enough for us, my son was taught how to say bonjourno and chao, and the other guests in the hotel chatted to him and made him feel welcome, all in all a friendly , chilled out environment to be in. We cannot say which staff stood out for us as everyone whether they spoke english or only a little were great. Nello , Franko, and Ugo ( i think he was the manager) were especially great with my son, aswell as Antonio the pool assistant who fixed my sons new car together. Marcello was amazing with my son also, We are definatly visiting next year, even the cleaners who came at least twice a day were friendly and the rooms were immaculate! we stopped in room 128 which was ideal for us as it was a concrete balcony so my son couldnt stick his legs through any railings, it had a pool view and my husband and i had many nights sipping wine and reading on a night time when my son was asleep. the bus driver was also very friendly and went out of his way to meet our needs and advised us the directions we needed to go to get cheaper toys , water ect. the breakfast was out of this world, we found ourselves trying new things and enjoying it! the coffee was fresh! and actually coffee not the purculated rubbish you find in alot of hotels, we visited pompeii on the local train and although it was busy we spent a quater of what thompson were offering, we are going back next year in early may again hopefully to visit the wonderful place, staff and hotel. in sorrento i advise you take the lift down to the marina port and dont try to walk like we did, taxis can be expensive and like anywhere you go they charge high rates to holiday makers than they would to locals. we cannot wait to return to see everybody again, we have stopped in many hotels 4 and 5 star including Roco Forte, Raddisson, and Marriott hotels and we feel this hotel should definatly be a star as it exceeded them all !!!
