Spent a week in Sorrento a couple of years ago and passed the Hotel Continental when walking up from Marina Grande and thought what a great location. So upon our return to Sorrento we selected the Continental and were not dissapointed, as mentioned the location is just about perfect for all areas of Sorrento being basically right in the middle of town, therefore only minutes from Tassos Square and all the restaurants and bars. The port was also minutes away via the lift. The hotel was excellent with wonderful staff. We had booked a seaview room with balcony which gave great views of Vesuvius and the Bay of Naples. The room was a good size, the bathroom was lovely and the towels were changed twice a day, were probably the softess fluffiess I have known in any Hotel. The bed was 'turned down' every night with a nice chocolate left by the bed.
Antonio run a very slick restarant with service being of paramount importance. Finally after a night out it was nice to drop into the bar to be greeted by the barman Giovani who was really good.
In summary I could not fault the staff & service as they were absolutely fantastic I have stayed in many 4/5* Hotels worldwide and cannot recall any giving bettter service. The hotel I guess probably suits a slightly older clientel.
The only slighly negative comment I could make would be to turn on the air-con earlier, apprently it gets turned on, on June 1st, which made the rooms quite hot at night.
Sorrento is a stylish resort with a range of good quality restaurants, to suit all budgets, a visit to Capri is a must, the towns of Capri & AnaCapri are lovely but make sure to get the 'ski lift' to the very top as the view is stunning. A visit to Positano and Ravello is well worth while although it would be fair to say the 'Amalfi' coast road is not for the faint hearted!!.
In summary Sorrento is a great destination but not a beach holiday, when I return I will certainly return to the Continental.
