“Rooms OK - food inedible”
Reviewed 10 December 2012

Although the rooms were acceptable - air-con controlled by the hotel but OK - the worst feature of this hotel was the food. We were half-board an attempted 2 breakfasts and 2 evening meal and found them not just awful but inedible - and we are not fussy eaters. We gave up and ate out, even the little family-run restaurant over the road managed to make good food! For goodness sake we were in Italy - its difficult to find somewhere which doesn't make good food! My advice would be to choose another hotel if possible and if not, go room only and leave the food well alone.

Room Tip: Note - we were charged 10 euros extra for a balcony even though there were only 2 other couples in t...

I stay at Villa Igea in august 2012. One of the good think of this hotel is the position, quiet neighborhood and a good view to the gulf of Naples.

The swimming pool is large and clean.

The breakfast is almost OK…Italian style…with a lot of sweet food…some cereals, cheese and yogurt, tea and American coffee ( not very good ).

The price is fair…and our room, 311 was big and with partial view to the sea…half to the pool, but good thing…very quiet.

Do not stay at the rooms that are to the main road, a lot of motorcycles and busses make a lot off noise.

Sorrento didn’t have too much beaches, but in the neighborhood of Villa Igea, cross the street and get down following the little road, you will find a gorgeous wild beach, on the rocks, with an amazing view. There you can make sunbath, jump into crystal water and relax.


Villa Igea is a little bit far from the center of the city, but in front of the hotel is a buss station and the busses are running every 20 minutes. To the center of the city is about 10 minutes and to the shop you can buy tickets for 1,20 euro / 45 minutes availability or I recommend 3 days tickets – for 20 euro availably for local busses, Amalfi cost Busses and Circumvesuviana Train with you can go to Naples and Pompeii. It is really a business.

From the railway station ( in the center of the city ) you can take the Blue Buss – Unico Costiera - in direction Massa Lubrense that let you in the front of the Villa Igea. The last bus in the night is at 00.35 if I remember right so you can stay in the center of Sorrento late in the night. In the same place you can take the busses for Amalfi cost and to Naples and Pompeii.

Room Tip: Our room, 311 was big and with partial view to the sea…half to the pool, but good thing…very quiet...

The hotel is nice and clean, however basic. The pool was excellent as it was quite a walk to the beach and a bus ride into Sorrento. However down sides were that you can not control your own air con in the rooms, the food was not worth the price- better to go into Sorrento and get a decent portion, the bar in the hotel was not usually attended- one evening we sat for 3 hours watching the Olympic Closing Ceremony without being spoken to once. The morning before we left, we decided to have a swim, however when we returned to our room, our towels had already been taken. Despite a few problems we did have a lovely break in a great place, just was slightely dissapointed with the hotel.

-Lovely area -Quick bus journey into wonderful Sorrento town (do not attempt to walk when it's that hot! Very hilly!) -Friendly, helpful staff -Decent breakfast (no cooked breakfast but we were in Italy, not England) -Delicious lunch/dinners! Looked forward to them. Not much for fussy eaters but you could always get the room only and eat out -Pool was nice but did get a bit dirty in terms of bugs floating half way through our stay... Didn't stop us going there almost every day though -Rooms were basic to say the least but very clean and we had a lovely view... You get what you pay for -Aircon in rooms! Lovely when you've been out in the heat but gets cold at night and you can't turn it off -Wifi in lounge is free -Trips that you can arrange through the hotel are a definite yes! Would recommend going to Capri using the hotel excursions as it was amazing! -Not a sandy beach holiday!!! However, if you walk down the (quite steep, long) hill opposite the hotel you will find a picturesque place to swim in a kind of rocky cave! It is beautiful, so glad we found it! Not too busy either -Ice cream in Sorrento town centre: got to try it! Delicious!
-Overall, would definitely recommend and we will be going back at some point.

We spent 10 days in July 2012. We were a party of 4 adults. Rooms were cleaned and towels were changed daily. Hotel situated just outside Sorrento town but buses every 20 minutes, in evening less frequent coming back, just need to check timetables. Food and staff were both excellent. Sea views stunning. Had a really good holiday. Air conditioning included.Would recommend.

Room Tip: Get one with sea view as its definitely worth it.

lovely views and service
hotel is not in sorrento town but a quick bus ride gets you there in no time at all
pool isnt very clean.
we were not told about the school trips which would be there, during our stay for one week we have 3 groups of school kids and we counted just over 100 of them when we sat for dinner one evening, there is no chance of staying by the pool when they descended far too noisy.
the waitors are a credit to the hotel.
rooms are clean and basic
would go back but only if there was no where else.
