We booked here via Thomson (as do many quests). We had a taxi transfer from Naples airport arriving after 10-30 p.m. We expected maybe some cold food to be available but instead the restaurant provided a waiter service hot meal. You won’t find many hotels that go to these lengths.
We were on the first floor with a balcony and sea view. By the bed were some very nice chocolates which were there every night when the beds were turned down.
The room is well fitted with TV (you can only get a few English news channels) good size fridge. Nice size bathroom with shower over the bath.
The room and the hotel are clean and the staff work hard, efficiently and are extremely friendly and helpful.
We were half board so thoroughly enjoyed the delicious breakfasts and dinners.
There was plenty to choice from the daily menu and the Sunday Gala was a real nice touch.
I was not well one morning and missed breakfast. When I went for my evening meal the first thing a member of staff did was to ask if I was OK and he checked again the next day. It’s the “extra mile” the staff go to that puts this hotel above others.
We took advantage of the free tea/coffee facilities in the room. You need to ask as it is not standard. We saw the option on the internet and e-mailed the hotel in advance and sure enough it was there when we arrived.
The air conditioning is not turned on as yet but I asked for a fan and we were supplied with our own small air conditioning unit. These can be noisy but that did not matter to us.
The hotel runs a complementary bus into Sorrento centre which leaves on the hour. It is only a 10 minute journey and returns at 15 minutes past each hour.
The Thomson representative does a great free orientation of Sorrento with a taste of wine and ice-cream which we found this very useful.
Our return flight was late evening so a late room checkout was very good.
We would highly recommend this place and rate it 5*.
