Here with hubby and 18yr old daughter and having a fantastic time at this small and friendly Hotel. The food is 5*, the service is second to none. The whole experience is just wonderful. Salvatore and his waiting staff make every night a great experience. We would definitely return to this one. It's a little walk from Sorrento but has great transport links to Naples and beyond *****

The Alpha Hotel is just perfect. I struggle to find but a few faults with it. We stayed as a family, 3 of us in total, coming back a couple days ago. We booked this last minute through Thomson and came here purely because of the fairly reasonable price tag, and the stunning reviews. We were not disappointed! We had one of the garden rooms, overlooking the garden, which maybe wasn't quite the same views as the balcony, but was good nevertheless. The Rooms were very clean, being cleaned thoroughly every day, and there was plenty space for 3 people.

The staff were what really made the trip fantastic. They made us feel very welcome, and always were smiling and very helpful. To mention a few: Salvatore, Rocco, Genarro, Luigi among all the rest of the staff.

The food was very good. There was always so much choice, with a very nice waiter service each night and the food usually being tasty and presented well. Breakfast was also good, however there were a few corners cut, such as Tinned fruit being used instead of the masses of fresh fruit found around Sorrento.

The location was also good, as It was away from the busy confines of Sorrento so nice and quiet, but there are plenty transport options such as the train for 1.3 euros each way, and the Bus for 1.2 euros each way. The train station is maybe a 5 minute walk, The bus is either outside or a 2minute walk into the centre of Sant'Agnello.

We also visited many of the regular sights, such as Pompeii, Herculaneum, and the Amalfi coast. We chose not to do the trips provided by Thomson, as although they looked good and were available, the prices were quite high compared to us doing it on our own. For Pompeii, We took the train from Sant'Agnello, about a 30minute train ride, and got tickets there. We then decided to opt for an english tour there, by an independent tour company, which was 10euro for Adult, 5euro for Child. This was a great option and the travel/tour came to around 35euro for all of us, so much cheaper than Thomson. This was a similar story with Herculaneum, and for the Amalfi coast, we took the 'City Sightseeing,' which was 12 euros pp and dropped us in Amalfi and took us back, as well as a tour on the way there, using the beautiful coast road and headsets to hear details. This also came to a lot cheaper than the Thomson price, for an Amalfi tour.

Although Thomson holiday excursions may be expensive, Our rep, Sam, was great. She was very helpful in suggesting various places to go, and we went round the free Sorrento tour with her, which was also very nice.

All in All, A perfect holiday which even now, I struggle to find much fault with.

P.S. We also Recommend 'David's Gelateria' in Sorrento, for some of the best gelato around. It's a 1minute walk from the station, and also has a Gelato course which was great.

Room Tip: Maybe try go for a higher room with a balcony, as although the Garden rooms were nice, there was lit...

I stayed with my husband & 16 year old daughter. From the start we were made to feel welcome and the service of Salvatorie, Rocco, Luigi & Genarro was second to none. Nothing was too much. The location was perfect for us being slightly out of busy Sorrento but able to travel in by bus or train for a few euros. The area of Sant' Agnello was safe and again the people were very welcoming especially in Bar Italia & Da Peppino where the food is very good.

We visited Pompeii and the Amalfi by train & local bus - much cheaper than through a tour and could take our time rather than being hearded around.

We really cannot fault our holiday and all thoroughly enjoyed it. We will return to the Alpha

Stayed here in May 2012. Fantastic location to see all the sights in Sorrento and the surrounding areas. Excellent selection of food in the evening. Some of the highest quality food we have experienced. Rooms are fairly basic, but all you need from a sightseeing holiday. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful, service could not be better. Our grandad used to visit every few years for over 20 years, and the fact he had traveled all over the world, says something for the standard of this hotel!

The hotel was immaculately clean and without exception every member of staff was friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble.The dining room staff were amazing and there was an huge choice of dishes for each course at dinner. The gala dinner and Neapolitan night were great fun. Pool was beautifully clean. Our room was well furnished and had a comfortable bed and a nice bathroom with a reliable shower and a good hairdryer. There was a view of Vesuvius from the balcony. The hotel is about a half hour walk from the hotel but you can catch a bus right outside if you'd rather. So much to see in the area. Already planning a return visit.

We stayed here at the end of June this year, and were delighted overall with the Alpha. All of the staff really go the extra mile to make sure your stay is all that it should be, and nothing is ever too much trouble.
The Staff are extremely polite and very friendly.
The Hotel is about a half an hour walk from Sorrento, but there is a Bus Stop immediately outside the hotel going to and from the Port or the Piazza Tasso - very handy! There is also a train station in St Agnello for the short journey to Sorrento as well.
We would have no hesitation in returning to the Alpha at all.

Room Tip: Room 104 was great.
