We chose this hotel because the guide books indicated it had a very large pool, a bar with nightly entertainment and an outstanding restaurant. We arrived there in April 2004 for three or four nights just after they went on to high season rates. After checking in, we gradually discovered that the restaurant was not yet open for the season, the piano bar had no entertainment and the pool was not yet filled. We were told we were too early for that by a couple of weeks. Understandably, perhaps, because the hotel was almost empty of guests. In spite of all this, they charged us the full high season rate for a very small suite. I would have left the hotel if my wife had not already unpacked everything. An additional annoyance was the location, which was a $12 taxi ride to the center of activity in Sorrento. If you have any interest in staying at the Cocumella, be sure to verify that their amenities will be in fact working and available during your stay. (By the day we left, the pool was half filled, but there was no other activity indicating it would soon be ready for use.)
