Hotel Villa Garden is about a 20-30 minute stroll from Sorrento in a residentaial area of Sant Angello. The moment we arrived at the hotel I felt peace and calm settle over me. The exterior is beautifully maintained as are all areas of the hotel. From the moment I walked into the hotel i was happy with our choice of hotel to spend our first anniversary. The reception is small but bright and airy, the staff are so amazingly friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are light and bright and spacious with good furniture and tasteful decor. Some people have mentioned the showers were of the hand held variety. This no longer seems to be the case and the 2 rooms we saw had full showers with lots of different settings etc. the bathrooms are well maintained and spacious enough. The breakfasts are buffet style with a decent enought choice and the option to have a cooked breakfast if desired. The views from the breakfast room are amazing too. There is a choice of sandwiches, hamburgers, fries, salads etc. The bar is open all the time it seems and the lounge room/bar area is relaxing with well maintained with lovely furniture. I thought the pool/pool area may have been a bit small from pics i had seen, but when we arrived and saw it there were no issues there either. I reluctantly admit i am a bit of a hotel snob and i like to stay in nice hotels when abroad. I was concerned that this hotel may be a little small as i prefer the blend rather than feel people are 'in my face' but this is seriously not the case. the hotel is amazing. go!!

We stayed at the Villa Garden hotel for three nights in May of 2009. First of all, the staff was so warm and helpful and welcoming that we found it hard to say goodbye(especially Gabriella). The hotel itself has every amenity one could want and the views are jaw-dropping from every room. The breakfast was spectacular and the breakfast room is like no other, perched above the sea. Immaculately clean and not one of those huge hotels where you are just a number. This is much more intimate with very personal attention to every detail. It's walking distance from the center of Sorrento and a real sanctuary we didn't want to leave. We will be back!

A little late writing this review as we stayed here in 2006 for our honeymoon!

The hotel is small (but not too small) and the staff are so friendly and helpful - we stayed in the Ninfea suite and could see the sea from our bed and Mount Vesuvius from the window of our living areas.

It was September so fairly quiet and we had the pool to ourtselves somedays, a nice place to have lunch btw the staff bring it out to you and set you up a little table.

There are a couple of restaurants nearby and ther eis always the walk into Sorrento - which is quite long and windy but nothing to complain about. I personally found sorrento really touristy and not what I expected at all so I was glad we chose Sant Angello.

Would recommend and will defintely be going back at some point in the future.

We stayed at the Villa Garden for 10 days in August 2008. From the moment you arrive at it`s beautiful location just outside of Sorrento, you feel as if you are part of the family who run the hotel.

The hotel is clean, the rooms are very well appointed and the beds and pillows are very comfortable. All the staff are efficient and very friendly. Breakfast is served in a conservatory area overlooking the bay commanding the most amazing views.

The pool area is beautifully kept with shade and sun choices. Lunch is served by the pool and the choice of food is very good and the food is of high quality.

I would recommend this hotel very highly and would have no hesitation in returning.

We made a return visit – we stayed at the Villa Garden in 2003 – and had a wonderful fortnight once again. The secret of the hotel’s success is that it does not change: everything was just as we left it, which is not to say it has been allowed to fade. The hotel is closed during the winter and we imagine that there is a programme of complete redecoration then, as even in August, towards the end of the season, it looks immaculate. We love the pool and the garden, which are perfect for relaxing under the Campania sun. Although there are no umbrellas there is plenty of shade for those that want/need it. The breakfast room is delightful, with unsurpassed views of Vesuvius and the Bay of Naples. We usually avoid cooked breakfasts in Italy - they are usually inferior, we have found - but we do recommend the bacon and eggs and omelettes here. The other, cold breakfast choices are plentiful and good The staff are all delightful, very helpful and nothing is ever too much trouble. Lunch by the pool is a real treat - don't miss the mozarella caprese - the tomatoes from around the volcano are sublime. Needless to say, it will not be five years before we return.

For any visitors who would like an alternative to Sorrento for dinner, Ristorante Moonlight, 5 minutes walk away in Via Cappuccini, is excellent, especially for antipasti and pizza. The fish we had there was very good also, but then it usually is in and around Sorrento if you avoid the menu turisticas and anywhere calling itself "English pub" or showing Sky Sports. See http://www.ristorantemoonlight.it/eng/index.php. Our absolute favourite restaurant anywhere in Italy is Lanternadue, in Via S.M. Delle Grazie, a quiet alley slightly off the main drag, but very central. A table outside is a must: take your time and enjoy the hilarious banter of the waiters. You'll be well looked after - the pasta special with sea bass I had on the last night was outstanding. We eat there on about 6 different evenings during our stay - see http://www.lalanternarestaurantsorrento.com/pageslanternadue/ing/lanterna_2.html. Our final restaurant recommendation this time round would be Zi'ntonio Mare, at Marina Grande. If you book through the hotel you will be collected and brought back, door-to-door, at no additional cost: the scampi we had here were very good.

Overall we had a brilliant holiday in this beautiful hotel and gorgeous area.

My new wife and I spent the last 4 days of our honeymoon in Sorrento at the Hotel Villa Garden. After spending the week prior to this traveling Greece, moving from place to place each day, this was the perfect place to wind down, relax, move at our own pace, and enjoy some incredible scenery. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and courteous, and they even had a cold bottle of champagne awaiting us in our room upon arrival. The views from our room were amazing: Mt. Vesuvio in one direction and the small, charming streets of Sant'Agnello in the other. We spent some time at the hotel swimming pool, which was also extremely well kept and peaceful. If you stay in this area, be sure to eat at the Moonlight Ristorante Pizzeria...excellent prices and delicious food. We spent 3 times as much money eating at Donna Sofia one night, which had a beautiful atmosphere, but the food was better at Moonlight. It's run by Antonio with his wife and son, who all are extremely kind and helpful.

One of the best things about the Hotel Villa Garden is its location. Sant'Agnello is a comfortable 30-45 minute walk (or a 5 minute bus ride if you prefer) from the main square in Sorrento, so we were far enough away from the crowds to not feel overwhelmed by tourists, but still able to easily enjoy all of Sorrento. The only trip we took from Sorrento was to Positano by circumvisuviana (bus). It was 6 euro per person for a 24-hour bus pass, and the views from the top of the peninsula were some of the best in the world. I think we enjoyed the bus ride even more the Positano itself! We consdered going to Pompei our last day in Sorrento, but we decided to just relax and hang out at the hotel pool and the beach 2 blocks away. This ended up being one of our favorite days.

The only, and I mean only, negative aspect of the hotel is that the rooms do not have traditional showers. Instead, there are large jacuzzi bathtubs with a hand sprayer you can use to resemble a regular shower, so we ended up showering at the pool shower most days, which was really no big deal at all. Overall, the Hotel Villa Garden was the perfect place to end our honeymoon and we will definitely stay there again our next time in Sorrento!
