My daughter and I recently travelled here. We were looking for a true Italian experience away from the hussle and bussle, more of a quiet, rural, safe, modern facility. Checked with Trip Adviser many times before deciding on this place instead of staying in Sorrento. There were a few things on our list that had to be convenient to do from this area. 1) Visit Pompeii/Mt Vesuvius and 2) See lots of farms and ride bikes. All of this and more occurred. We did an arranged day trip via the Amalfi Coast (cruise) to Isle of Capri one day and another day a shopping trip to Sorrento (ample time). By ourselves we jumped on the train at Capaccio for Pompeii - easy and transportation is fast and cheap. We rode bikes all over the countryside, swam in the Sea (lovely private beach) and lounged around late afternoons at a marvellous pool on site at this hotel.
I loved the fact that this is a place where a lot of Italians go for holidays or weddings. It was clean, beautiful and best of all we were two of four Canadians at the time. There were some Europeans but mostly Italians speaking Italian. We had our handy Rick Steve's phrase book and Enzo and Cozimo (Superman) were great for translating.
The best part of this holiday was how welcoming and how helpful all of the staff were. From the front desk to the kitchen to the entertainment guys hired for the summer. We have all good things to say about this place. It was exactly what we were looking for. Gracie Mille!
