I have just returned from a weeks holiday travelling with Riviera Travel after choosing the hotel from reviews on Trip Advisor. It is a beautiful building in a stunning location. My friend and I had 'Camelia' after emailing Maria at the hotel and asking for a large room with balcony (we had already paid for a sea view). The room was large, looked recently decorated with a lovely big modern bathroom, a balcony and a view over the bay.There was air conditioning and extra blankets if required. Perfect! The room was kept spotless with clean towels every day. Pool towels could be hired for one euro, but kept for more than one day.
We really enjoyed the food, you were given choices to make at breakfast time, the Gala night was brilliant, all the staff were helpful and charming, bar and lunch prices were very reasonable and unused wine was stored for the following evening. Meals were taken on the terrace with sunset views over the bay.
The hotel, converted monastery, is located on the hill in an olive grove with a lovely swimming pool to one side. The pool and pool area were also kept spotless and there was plenty of sunbeds. There are also sitting areas in the shade at the side of the hotel.
Sorrento is downhill approximately ten minutes to the main street, yes it is uphill coming back but not really a steep climb and takes about twenty minutes. It is well lit so no problems returning in the evening.
Although the review is on the Hotel I would like to mention the fantastic tour we had with Riviera Travel. Every day was planned to perfection allowing for time for a swim at the end of the evening. Getting up and getting on a coach and being taken to Naples, Capri, Herculaneum, Pompeii, Amalfi and Ravello was fantastic. Diana our tour guide was excellent and we both came home unable to think of one negative thing to say about the hotel or the tour. Doesn't get better than that!!
