We picked this hotel after reading the great reviews and were not disappointed. After a cramped hot taxi ride from the airport having not been able to get on the airport shuttle bus (tip - if you do opt for the bus, don't stand politely in the queue, you'll find you won't get on & will have to take your luggage off the bus & barter with the taxi drivers or take a different bus to the train station & catch a hot uncomfortable train to Sorrento instead) we had a very warm friendly welcome at the hotel.
We began to relax immediately & after a chat about the football (" you was robbed!" - it was the day England lost) were shown by the lovely Michelle (from Yorkshire!) to our room. Beautiful tiled floor throughout, large bathroom, everything spotless.
The air conditioning and high ceilings kept the room cool & we found by leaving the aircon on low during the day when we were out it kept the temperature down at night so we didn't have to have our balcony doors open. We didn't see any mosquitos but did get bitten a couple of times out & about! I did find the bed quite firm, but I guess that just depends what you are used to.
Breakfasts were a real treat, we sat outside when we could, sipping freshly squeezed orange juice & endulging in fresh cakes & pastries from the very large selection...yummy.
The pool set in the orange & lemon grove was bliss. The pool bar serving lunch, snacks & drinks was excellent - great quality, good portions & very well priced. We wonder if the hotel have considered serving food here in the evenings too, I am sure it would be very popular.
All in all I would strongly recommend this hotel, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. If we return to Sorrento we will definitely stay here.
