“AMAZING FOOD,FANTASTIC STAFF AND VIEWS TO DIE FOR”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Just came back on 8th August for a week but wish we had booked for longer.The food was fantastic.You get a set meal on an evening which tasted as good as it looks and all served to you by very friendly staff(especially Luigi).Marco also very friendly and helpful on reception.He had some food waiting for us in our rooms as we were delayed and didn't get to the hotel till 12pm.We also just booked our trips through the hotel which was very reasonable.We did the trip by boat to Capri and the Amalfi coast which were fabulous and they pick you up by boat from the hotel which my daughter loved being whizzed around to Massa Lubrense harbour.The views of Capri were fantastic from the pool/restaurant in fact anywhere at the hotel.Thank you to everyone for a most enjoyable stay and will definitely back.

Room Tip: Definitely choose a balcony and sea view.

We have recently returned from the Delfino from our honeymoon and we are so happy to have spent it at such a wonderful hotel. It was a good decision to have chosen a room with a view of Capri – the view is simply stunning. To be fair even if your room doesn’t have a sea view you will have plenty of opportunities to soak up the view as the hotel has been cleverly designed to take full advantage of it – from the restaurant, from the bars and from the pool area. The internal design of the hotel was excellent too – lots of white and Mediterranean blue – and the hotel and room were kept spotlessly clean.

The food was delicious and plentiful and service friendly and dignified. The staff in the dining room made us feel part of the Delfino! The restaurant will be a delight for seafood fans in particular. The buffet style antipasti course was almost a meal in itself. That is the first holiday ever where I felt I better try to shed a pound or 2 on my return home. Thanks to all the great staff particularly in the dining room and the top floor bar.

The only negative was a poor wi-fi signal but that’s hardly the end of the world since there was so much else to do or you can simply chill out.

The seawater pool is fairly small but an Olympic sized swimming pool is of little interest to me. The hotel ‘beach’ is more of a rocky cove but very picturesque and great fun when leaving it by rib if you choose to go on a boat trip further afield from Massa Lubrense. One thing about the trip we went on to Capri to look out for is that we doubt whether it ever takes you inside the fabled Blue Grotto. Don’t worry though – the trip circumnavigating and landing on the island is memorable.

The 2 hourly courtesy hotel minibus is a necessity and ensured the hotel’s location didn’t cramp our style. We’re folk who want to get around and see some of the local area. One option is to hire a car but we preferred to relax rather than joining the locals in the manic clifftop driving along the Amalfi coast road. Anyway, the minibus allowed us to connect with public transport (reliable trains) and ferries which allowed us to explore far and wide during our 10 day stay. This allowed us to visit Capri, Amalfi, Pompeii, Herculaneum and Naples. We had a day trip to Naples via the fast ferry from Sorrento taking in the world-class archaeological museum and a Warhol exhibition. We returned for a 2 day visit so we could attend Madama Butterfly at the wonderful Napoli Opera House and given the performance finished at midnight we had an overnight stay there.

What a wonderful honeymoon – what a wonderful hotel. An enormous thank you to all the staff! We’ll be back :0)

Room Tip: definitely worth paying extra for the view of Capri

We arrived at the hotel after 11pm on the Friday. To our surprise a selection of cold meats, cheese and salad were waiting for us in our room. This got the holiday off to a perfect start after a long journey from the airport. We had booked a sea view room which we tend to do when we are away. The view in the morning from our room was stunning looking across to Capri and words can not describe this. Having had sea view rooms all round the world I can say that this was the best and most dramatic we have had. It is certainly worth the upgrade. We were on half board and the food and menu choice in the restaurant in an evening was excellent. We did not have the same menu twice during the two weeks we stayed and didn't struggle to choose our meal.. The staff were excellent and looked after us throughout our holiday. The courtesy bus to Sorrento is an excellent service and we used it frequently throughout our stay. We will certainly be back again in the future.

Room Tip: Select a sea view room, it is worth the upgrade.

Perfect! Food, location, staff - perfect! Great seawater pool and bar, worth getting room with balcony and sea view, fabulous! Not on main bus route but there is 2 hourly shuttle service to Sorrento from hotel. We loved walking so everything accessible using feet and Sita Bus! Food great for seafood lovers

Bella Bella Bella!

Everything was wonderful, the location . . aaah . . . a hidden gem . . with breathtaking scenery and a spectacular view of Capri beckoning you to come and visit, the pathway leading straight to the clear blue sea ( my teenage son spent hours jumping off the rocks there), the food . . . exceptional, exquisite, delicious, a true delight (a real treat for all cooks out there, myself included), . . . the staff . . . polite, charming, funny and ever helpful ( a special 'Thank you' to Francesco and Massimo who served us while we were there, and coped with my attempts at Italian!) The hotel is about 20 mins from Sorrento, but that is never a problem as there is a regular free shuttle bus available. We prefered being away from the 'bustle' of Sorrento, and you can also walk to the port of Massa Lubrense in 30 mins, well worth the adventure. There is so much to see out there, we will simply have to return . . Fantastico !

Room Tip: The sea view rooms are spectacular, but the garden rooms are also lovely. Whichever room you choos...

We stayed at the Delfino in June 2014. The hotel staff are fantastic and are all very helpful. The hotel facilities and restaurant and its food were very enjoyable. We stayed on a half board basis and all drinks and extras were put on the room and paid for at the end of our stay (you can pay daily if you prefer). Travelling to Sorrento on the free shuttle was fine and it was always on time. Any minor issues are not worth mentioning as I do not want to deter people from booking the Delfino, particularly for coeliac sufferers like my wife who will relish the gluten free options (gluten free bread / cereal etc. Let the hotel know on arrival and just ask the waiters which menu options are gluten free, most are or they can be adapted to suit). Enjoy!

We stayed here for 1 week in mid July. This hotel has the most beautiful views of Capri and staying in a room with the ocean view is a must- looking out at the ocean first thing in the morning is simply stunning and sets you up for the rest of the day.
The food in the mornings and evenings was very good quality with plenty of options and service was of a high standard. We also ate lunch at the pool time restaurant a few days and i can highly recommend the fresh fish it was delicious and cooked to order. The pool area is very nice but can get busy, try getting a lounger looking out at the ocean :)
We also did a trip to Capri put on by the hotel - i would defiantly recommend this - the little boat picks you up at the bottom of the hotel and takes you around to Massa Lubrense Harbour where you pick up another boat that takes you on the day trip, you then get dropped off at the hotel after. Perfect service.
The shuttle bus to Sorrento is very good and was always on time, we loved staying in a quieter location (20 mins drive)
The only down side i had was the hard bed (this isn't something i would usually comment on) but it was very hard.
Overall we had a lovely relaxing break and would defiantly come back
