Had a fantastic 2 week stay at The Continental and as the title says we would go back tomorrow... however it is now looking unlikely as the hotel is going to be B&B only next year. The evening meals were superb and are the main reason that we have given the hotel 5/5, along with it's perfect location and amazing staff. As other reviewers have commented, the staff in the restaurant (Antonio and Franco in particular) are very friendly and go out of their way to spoil you and enjoy recommending dishes to you. Watch out for Franco and the dessert trolley as we were regularly given 3 or 4 desserts!
The swimming pool is lovely and ideal for a nice swim. There were plenty of sun beds and although there were not many parasols, 1 side of the pool was always in the shade. There were no problems with people reserving sunbeds and the pool area was usually very quiet when we used it between 4 -6pm.
We stayed in room 101 which had an internal balcony, which we were aware of when we booked our holiday so it came as no surprise (Direct Holidays wanted another £300 for the 2 weeks for a view). We have included pictures of the view from the room and the staircase pictured is private (can be accessed by rooms on the 1st floor) and in 2 weeks we saw nobody walking up or down them. Not having a pretty view didn't bother us as we spent so little time in the room. We could easily enjoy a view of the Bay of Naples from the roof terrace or the terrace areas in front of the Hotel.
The Hotel is perfectly located for exploring Sorrento, which is a wonderfully vibrant place and an ideal gateway for those wishing to explore the Amalfi Coast.
The only criticism about this hotel would be that the bar prices are a little too high with the cheapest bottle of wine costing 19 euros and cocktails 8 euros. If you enjoy cocktails then go to Naima which is a couple of streets away and they only cost 5 euros!
