We stayed here for 9 days in July.A group of 15 between the ages of 14-60.The hotel is very quiet no entertainment at all need to get the bus to Sorrento which u can get outside the hotel get tickets at reception 1.30,some reviews say 1 every 20/30 mins I'd say 1 an hour no path so dangerous to walk,last bus about 10.30 from Sorrento maybe a bit later but dnt depend on it and about 30 euro in a cab to get back .Nice pool/bar area kept very clean and bar man lovely.Only place to have a drink unless you're eating in the restaurant and no bars near by so something to bear in mind it was our first time in Italy we usually do the package hol spain etc so always spoiled for choice when it comes to a bars.Rooms were cleaned every day fresh towels etc two of the rooms had an incident with ants which in fairness in a hot country u will come across some kind of crawlies I woke up to them on my pillow but once I mentioned it,it was sorted no more to be seen.Food was nice we ate out 4 nights but food there just as nice as anywhere else we ate in the sister restaurant down the road a bit more expensive but was a nice change.We were unsure weather to hire a car.. we did there is parking outside we felt we needed it handy to get to shop in the morning if u wnt paper etc go left 5 mins up the road for shop.. bank machine etc..but roads mad .. drivers mad..they over take on bends it's every man for their own just keep looking ahead and always expect the unexpected!!Hotel didn't take any cash you just gave ur room number when ur ordered didn't need to sign for anything so u never knew what u wer spending we did ask at the desk cud we check our bill but the girl at the desk at the time didnt speak English so we left it so we were dreading our bill at the end of our stay it was actually ok but I do think a better system cud be in place so u cud check day to day what u spent.everything is wrote down in a copy.Staff are friendly and helpful (mind you some are not great at speaking Engish and we were hopeless at speaking Italian so sometimes there was confusion ) my son wanted to join us he was in France we asked cud he stay in our room it no problem charged us an extra 25 per night which was very reasonable.If planning any trips do it yourself,we drove to Pompeii.. 50 mins ..11 euro in.. there are trains and buses will cost u half the price.rather than 45 euro plus entance fee with the tourist guides.we also went to Campri.. before we got on the ferry we had a guy come rnd offering us to show us around once we got there..collect us from the port etc we were told u need a guide here so we got him bargined him down from about 25 ahead to 15 but it was worth it cause we wudnt hv seen half as much..All in all it was a nice holiday views are beautiful but it iis a sight seeing hol and I think a little bit too quiet for us there is hustle and bustle In Sorrento but still not any crack in bars so it depends on what ur into we'r a couple early 40's had a 16 year old daughter so think it might be back to Spain or similar nxt year ... a bit of Karaoke etc always a bit of fun on hols.
