We have recently returned from a ten night stay at the Cocumella; our fifth visit in the last eight years. We didn't think it was possible to improve upon perfection but somehow or other the owners, the delightful del Papa family, have managed it.
The service has always been good but now it's even better; in part due to a slight increase in staff numbers. Others have remarked upon the efficiency and excellence of the staff, but it doesn't do any harm to repeat the fact. Giuseppe, the Concierge, and Giovanni, the Maitre d'Hotel, together with their respective teams are so professional - but without any hint of stuffiness.
Breakfast is amazing. Lunch is superb. Dinner is exquisite. Everything was so good, in fact, that there were a number of days when we didn't bother to leave the hotel grounds.
A few have suggested that the restaurant is expensive. Well, it's worth remembering that this is a 5 star hotel. However, a very reasonable half-board option is available and the extensive wine list has some seriously modest options, particularly on a number of the truly delicious local Campanian wines. The Sommelier, Massimo, knows his job and is more than willing to share his expertise with you.
And so, to Giovanni, Luigi, Tonino, Antonio, Felice, Marco, Giuseppe, Pepe, Massimo, Nunzio and all the rest at the truly 'Grand' Hotel Cocumella - Bravissimi e grazie!
