Stayed at the La Badia for one week in May with Riveira Travel group.
After a false start in getting a room with no real sea view (having paid the supplement for one) our stay was very enjoyable. It's a bit of a lottery with the rooms as they are all different. Originally in one of the large basement rooms which has a patio area outside, but also a noisy boiler room next door. We ended up on the top floor which has small "porthole" type window, but the view accross the Bay of Naples was simply stunning. I have read some negative reports about the food here, but breakfasts were fine (no variation and the juice not very good) and the evening meals were Italian "style" with plentiful starters and a small main course. I was expecting to have to dine out for a few nights, but can honestly say we had only one poor main course the whole week.
Wine menu ok and reasonably priced (avoid the local Sorrento wine though)
Very clean hotel in picturesque grounds and friendly welcoming staff.
Lovely patio and pool area. Great location for views, but maybe a little out of town if you are not very mobile. Pre-bookable transport available with Riviera as taxi back from town is expensive (15 euro)
Did a lot of research on Tripadvisor on all the hotels Riviera use in Sorrento and this one came out on top. Very pleased that I made the right choice!
