Stayed here for seven days in June with my girlfriend.
Some mixed reviews on here but I can honestly say it was a great place to stay. Its main asset is its staff. Teresa in particular was fantastic. All were polite, friendly, helpful, etc but it was always a delight to see Teresa on reception. From general information, helping us plan trips and booking things for us, they couldnt have done more.
The reception area is friendly and nicely decorated and the pool, sun area is small but adequate. Would be nice if the pool was open a little later than six pm though.
Only had breakfast and it was adequate so can't comment on food too much. Snacks around the pool were good and all reasonably priced. Drinks were 2 euros 50 so a bargain!
Room was OK. Clean, good AC, a little noisy from corridor / other rooms but nothing to distract. TV, hair dryer, shower, etc, etc, usual features. I would say the room was much more 3 star than 4 but perfectly fine. Good luck finding better in the centre of Sorrento for less than 100 euros per night.
Location - brilliant. Snack bar, convenience store - 30 seconds. Supermarket - 2 mins. Bus/train and airport bus -2 mins. From here you can get anywhere. Main square - 5 mins. Within a zone of approx 10 mins you have access to around 50 bars and restaurants and all the shops. Basically, even at a leisurely pace you can reach anywhere in Sorrento in about 15 mins - including the port. We used the hotel as a base to discover Sorrento and using local bus and train, Amalfi, Ravello, Positano, Capri, Caserta, Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius. Easy!
Downsides, only think I can think of is early pool closing is a bit odd - apart from that, for 100 euros a night, we got more than we thought! Stayed in many cities in Italy and this was great value.
Summary, great staff, great location, great price, would stay again. Happy to answer any specific queries anyone may have.
Thanks Teresa and team. X
