La Pergola hotel may be a small hotel compared to many of it's competitors, but what it lacks in floor space it makes up for ten-fold in hospitality and catering.
Initially the size of the room worried me slightly, it wasn't like the cavernous rooms supplied by the all-inclusive chain hotels, but this worry soon passed after I realised that very little of my time was spent in my room anyway! It was clean, practical, had all the furniture you needed and a functioning en-suite bathroom - it even had a small balcony with a table and chairs.
The food was exquisite, classic italian menu with a range of pasta, risotto, calamari and other traditional Italian foods. You were neither overwhelmed with an over-crowded buffet nor starved of a choice, it was all table service and a choice of 3 dishes for starter, main and dessert - all of which were as tasty as each other!
During our stay we experienced the Italian festival 'Ferragosto' (Assumption Day) and we were treated to a 6 course meal with a cocktail and nibbles at no extra cost to our stay, needless to say I have never eaten so much in my life.
The staff were all very friendly and approachable and the communal areas of the hotel (including the roof terrace) were very well maintained and kept clean at all times.
The location of the hotel was also convenient, while staying out of the busy centre of Sorrento (also the highly expensive centre of Sorrento!) we could easily walk there from our hotel for a night out or a day's exploring, with the added bonus of having the smaller village of Sant'Angelo just a five minute walk away for all our basic needs. Sorrento has a main train station which you can use to travel to Pompeii, Herculaneum and for trips into Naples. All sites are very close to the stations along the way so no need for expensive excursions or bus trips when you can go in your own time.
I would strongly recommend this hotel for any food-lovers and for those who do not want to bother with a hire car on holiday as there's no need in this location.
Those looking for a lazy holiday of sitting by the pool and relaxing in the hotel room would perhaps not appreciate La Pergola as while it does have a pool, it is mainly as a means to cool down rather than swim a few lengths!
The best holiday we have ever had and I would definetly return - 10/10.
