In a word, superb. Fantastic views of Sorrento, surrounding coast and Vesuvius. Unlike a lot of (higher starred) hotels Admiral is within 10 minute walking distance of old town. The hotel is set in a quiet, peaceful area. Local (mainly fish) restaurants in marina are well patronised. Hill to town not suitable for those with difficulties walking. Marina Grande is a working fishing port that combines locals and holiday-makers well. Small black sand beach, cheap sun beds we are told.
Small and cosy, needs a lick of paint and a bit of touching up here and there. Top floor long balconies amazing, we had room 410
Small salt water pool sufficient for cooling off.
Excellent terrace with bar. Relatively small sunbathing area but sufficient for number of guest when we were there.
Snack bar cheap. Bar well priced, 4 Euros a large beer (in town beer was 5 Euros)
Food – mostly good. Gala night good fun, nice to see chefs smiling face when he was introduced to diners. Sunday buffet very impressive and set on the terrace, food was excellent.
Entertainment was man on keyboard every night, not so good
Staff were all friendly and smiling all times
Rooms was clean but balcony could have done with a brush and table wiped.
Pay the extra for sea view – only a small cost and worth every penny

Excellent - Positive, friendly, helpful. Best rep we have had. Told us he loved his job and this was evidenced by his enthusiasm. Getting to know Sorrento walk was excellent
Amalfi Drive – magnificent views (get on right hand side of coach) Iris was the tour guide, best guide ever. Knowledgeable, passionate and funny.
