5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2011

Booked after seeing reviews on tripadvisor, wasn't disappointed. Even though we didn't get a balcony the windows opened fully and because we were situated at the back of the hotel we had total black out shutters on the windows, total bonus as I only sleep well in a very dark room. Breakfast was ample and staff were friendly but not overbearing which is what we like. We booked bed and breakfast which allowed us variety and do not regret that choice as the guests having evening meal had to pick their meal at breakfast!??

The hotel appears to cater to a slightly older age group than our group was (our group age range was 26-32). The hotel has a list of rules upon arrival, some were helpful and informative whereas others were more restrictive.

Pros
- quiet hotel
- clean rooms, with a safe
- nice breakfasts
- courtesy bus to Sorrento (although limited times and a limited number of spaces)
- roof terraces
- helpful reception staff - especially for organising day trips or transport to the airport
- upon hearing that it was a friend's birthday, the staff put a candle in his food

Cons
- limited hotel menu/variety (especially poor for vegetarians)
- quality of the main courses each evening (and this typically consisted of beef, roast chicken, turkey - all cooked badly - rather than what I deem more Italian dishes)
- the sound proofing of the rooms is poor, you can hear people above move chairs etc
- housekeeping sing as they clean - nothing against them but when its early and you are still trying to sleep this is annoying
- slow service in the restaurant - we ended up stacking our plates each night to help out
- location - not that much in the surrounding area
- sun beds around the pool have a fairly short window frame for getting the sun

We booked this hotel (through Expedia) based on the positive reviews we found on TripAdvisor. They were all true!!
We booked a standard room B & B, but requested one with a balcony, and were given one with a decent balcony and rear (OK) views of the hills. Great shady place to relax on a hot afternoon. Also booked tea/coffee in the room as this wasn't included in our deal. Well worth the 4 euros a day. Took up a special offer on arrival for 3 nights dinner at 15 euros pppn instead of the standard 24 euros. Good value for a 3 course dinner at this level of hotel.
Reception staff couldn't have been more helpful. Every request or question was handled straight away and they are a mine of information on local travel etc.
Special mention for Gina, our chambermaid, who greeted us with a huge smile every morning and gave a great start to each day!

We have recently been to Sorrento and stayed at this hotel. We were delighted with the accomodation and resturant. All the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The area was very pretty with amenities close by. It was an comfortable walk to the centre of Sorrento with all the bars, resturants and shops, however, the free mini bus was also very useful. There is plenty to do and see in this area. We really enjoyed our holiday and would definately like to return in the future.

We had an excellent holiday, had a lovely room overlooking the pool with a balcony. The food in the hotel was good with 5 choces for each course at the evening meal. There were always plenty of sunbeds and loved the jacuzzi. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful On my return home I realised I had left my bikini on the balcony and and after asking the staff if they could return it to me they kindly did this and I received it in 3 days. Thank you very much we would definitely recommend this hotel

Fabulous hotel for relaxing before and after dinner in the garden or lounge listening to the piano play. Amazing Italian food cooked & presented to a high standard.

we spent a long time searching the web to try and find the perfect hotel for our return visit to beautiful sorrento, as 4yrs ago we were married there and stayed at the plush grand hotel royal in the centre of town, this time however, we didnt have the budget for such luxury and, as we were been joined by our 3yr old son, we thought it very important to do our homework. so after hours of searching and reading endless reviews, we kept coming back to the hotel caravel, it was hard to find a negative comment, and now having spent 10 wonderful nights there we understand why!

the hotel itself is in a nice quiet location, well appointed and extremely clean, it has a nice pool area, a small garden terrace where we enjoyed several evenings and drinks and even a little fish pond with 5 turtles which made my sons holiday and kept him occupied for hours! but what really made the caravel stand out and what really made our holiday were the fantastic staff who worked there, everyone from the cleaners to the receptionists, to the bar staff, to the waiters at breakfast were always ready with a warm welcome and a freindly smile, within days they all knew our sons name and always made a great fuss of him, which he took in his stride! He was even presented with his own little baby (toy) turtle which he treasures!

we wouldnt hesitate to reccommend this gem of a hotel to anyone, especially to young familys, the welcome we recieved was second to none and, if we ever return for a third visit to the sorrento area, we'll certainly be back. we just hope that the owners are aware of how good their staff are and look after them well! they deserve it! thankyou all for our wonderful memories.
