We stayed here during our honeymoon in the very end of August. We arrived by boat in the small port from Napoli. We spent about 17 Euros getting to the the hotel via taxi which was a BIG mistake. All you need to do is get on one of the red local buses which are parked right in the port and pay about 1.60 euro. Purchase tickets in the bar by the church in the main square or at the Tabacchi in the port. The bus stops right in front of the hotel practically and is less than 5 minutes up the hill. Upon arriving the staff showed us the room which they had upgraded us to. It was a rooftop room with its own HUGE terrace overlooking what felt like all of Sorrento. We had booked a basic room - which are fairly small - so this was a lovely surprise. They also had a bottle of proseco waiting for us in the room. The air conditioning in the room was the best on our whole trip which was great because it was HOT in August here. The pool area was incredibly quiet and the pool was a good size. There is a lovely grove surrounding the pool which makes it feel more like you are in someone's garden than at a hotel. The staff at the pool were quirky and fun and the food there was excellent. The hotel is located just off the main Piazza and has a great store across the street convenient for buying snacks for your stay like wine and cheese. Staff were very helpful and knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. They recommended the beach club to us which was just a short walk back down the hill. For 16 euros each we had a lounge chair and towels all day on the sea. It was really nice. Overall this was definitely worth it.
