We stayed at the Grand Hotel Parco del Sole on an Omega Holidays package at the end of May 2011. We stayed in a superior room overlooking the swimming pool at the rear of this rather confusingly laid out building.
There are lots of good things to say about the hotel including the friendly staff, clean rooms, lots of hot water and the standard of the meals. A caveat to the latter is the breakfast coffee which appeared to have been filtered through the contents of a Frenchman's ashtray.
For a so-called superior hotel we thought tea and coffee making facilities, a fridge and minibar and an effective hairdrier would could come as standard (we were in a superior room, remember) but apparently not. Similarly the only English speaking television channels available were BBC World Service and CNN ... at least they were after we discovered that the bulky Amstrad (!) Television set only came on if the "P" on the zapper was pressed.
There were other niggles for us too. For example, the sink in our room was crazed, there was no internet connection or library and the vaunted shuttle bus to Sorrento in the early part of the day only left at 9.05 a.m. and noon. Our bathroom did not have an extractor fan. We were also surprised that in the digital age we were required to sign bits of paper for all the extras we had in the dining room or at the pool bar.
These are, of course, just niggles. We would still recommend the hotel so please do not be too put off by the foregoing or by comments that the hotel is "dated". The hotel is decorated in an art deco style in places and it may be that which has mislead other respondents.
