“Fabulous Friendly Hotel”
Reviewed 7 August 2012

We have just got back from a lovely week in Sorrento. Hotel Caravel was such a lovely place to stay with friendly staff, comfortable rooms and excellent food. The Hotel was always kept spotlessly clean including the pool and garden area. It is in a great location with just a 15 minute walk from the centre of Sorrento and a 2 minute walk from Marinella beach. The courtesy shuttle bus service, in and out of Sorrento was excellent and saved us a fortune in taxi fares. Every morning there was a great variety of food for the buffet breakfast and the staff in the dining room were very efficient, helpful and always had a smile on their face. We had a lovely room with a balcony, with a view of the pool, Mount Vesuvius and the Bay of Naples. In addition, the room was air conditioned as well as the rest of the hotel. We will definitely be returning to the hotel next summer.

Stayed July 2012, travelled with family

Just back from our holiday in Sorrento. Stayed at Hotel Caravel St Agnello for eight nights. This by far is the best hotel we have stayed in and would not hesitate to go back for another holiday. Everything about this hotel was superb, the staff were very friendly and welcoming, the room was fantastic very clean and the air conditioning was a god send as most days was in the mid thirties. The restaurant was again fantastic with wonderful staff and a first rate choice of food for both breakfast and evening meals (no repetition on the menu for the evening meals over our 8 night stay). Great location just outside Sorrento with a courtesy bus into town if required, walking into town takes approx 20 minutes. The pool and outside areas we very well maintained with plenty of sunbeds around the pool and plenty of seating in the outside areas. Ten out of ten on all fronts

Room Tip: Upgrade to superior room with balcony, views fantastic

Just back from a five night stay at Caravel Hotel,wish it could have been longer
The Hotel was great the staff very friendly, the food excellent
we had a room for 3 adults,and had adequate space
one of the good advantages was the free shuttle bus from the Hotel to Sorrento it was very reliable with a very friendly driver
we were disappointed the beach was a distance away from the Hotel,but we made good use of the Hotel pool
The Hotel was excellent value for money,I would certainly recommend to friends and family

We have just returned from a fantastic family holiday.

The hotel staff were so friendly especially towards our daughter. Offering to cook anything for her. The waiters always had a smile and the dining room was run super efficiently. The room was promptly cleaned each morning, fresh sheets and towels.

The swimming pool and public toilets throughout the hotel were always clean and well stocked with towels and toilet rolls.

Great choice of food on the menu each day, buffet breakfast was varied each day with fresh bread, bakery items, cereals, yoghurt, hams cheeses and a hot cooked breakfast if required.

Lunch was very reasonably priced, as were the drinks in the bar and restaurant

The location just outside Sorento was ideal for us, we found Sorento too busy when we did venture in. The hotel does run a very prompt and regular shuttle service.

The finishing touch was a small gift to our daughter of a pottery terrapin on departure.

We will be returning next year without doubt.

Thanks to the staff.

Just back from 2 weeks in Sorrento, stayed at Caravel Hotel St Agnello very good - spotless and efficent staff. We ate three night in the Hotel and the food was excellent, breakfast was very good and a varied choice. A good location as quieter than Sorrento but a 15 minute walk or use the Hotel curtesy mini bus which ran a good service. We visited Pompei, Herculaneum, Naples, Amalfi, Capri and climbed Vesuvius planned to do more but the weather was blistering so we relaxed for a few days. From Naples airport get the carreri bus 10 euros and it drops you in Saint Agnello you walk from the bustop and take the 3rd opening and the Hotel is on the right hand side a short walk. Views from room fantastic looking over Ischica, Vesuvius and Capri.

Room Tip: we were in room 403 so nobody above and a small balcony which we never used as Hotel has pool and tw...

Meals were very good plenty of choice, rooms spotless clean. In a quiet location would recommend to anyone. One of the only hotels we stayed in the air condition worked propely.
Free use of safe in room, fridge and tea making facilities available at a small charge.The main plus for this hotel was the friendliness of all the staff , well done would defo stay again.

Just leaving from a lovely stay at the Caravel. Booked very late and got last room via expedia. Didn't research apart from tripadvisor so trusted the reviews. Pretty spot on really.

Hotel is about half hour walk from sorrento itself. Be warned getting to Sorrento is either very expensive via taxi or requires a hour long coach trip via lovely scenery. Would have been lovely bar the very hot weather at this time of year and not the best air con on board. Hotel is 10 minute walk from drop off in Saint Agnello.

Hotel staff were charming and welcoming but after the trip would have loved to be offered a cold towel and drink!!

Hotel is bargain for the price. Not a top four star by UK standards but if you do not want grand rooms then rooms are fine and simple.
Pool area is small but a strap so if you want to tan its great for a cool off dip in clean water.

Hotel provides a shuttle into Torrents which could be more frequent especially this time of year with the heat.

All in all though you will struggle to find such value in the area!
