Hotel La Pergola
Ranked #17 of 19 Hotels in Sant'Agnello
Reviewed 11 September 2008

I just wanted to say what a wonderful time I had on my last holiday, to La Pergola. I've spent the last few years visiting very large, corporate, all-inclusive resorts - so was a little apprehensive about going to a 3* hotel on a half board basis. However the apprehension disappeared straightaway. The food was always extremely nice and very enjoyable. The waiters were always very keen to offer you something else if you said you didn't like what was on the menu. I only did this once, as I figure when you're in a foreign county, you should eat as the locals do.

The hotel was a good 20 minute walk away from Sorrento, but there were plenty of buses if you wanted them. My friend and I travelled everywhere on public transport - we used buses, trains, coaches, ferries, cable cars, etc.. I wouldn't recommend driving as it seems their style of driving is very different to ours.

We visited Pompei, Vesuvius, Positano, and Capri. One of the best things was the chair lift in Anacapri - wonderful views at the top. Capri is a beautiful island and well worth visiting. We also went to the lesser popular islands of Ischia and Procida.

I would definitely recommend the Pergola Hotel - the staff are very friendly, polite and helpful. The room wasn't very big, but to be fair we were hardly in it, as we were too busy going out to see everything.

If you're thinking of visiting this hotel, or Sorrento generally then it's well worth the trip - it's made me very keen to get back to Italy, Ciao!

We stayed in Hotel La Pergola for a week in Aug 2008 and had a great time. The hotel is about 15 minute walk from the centre of Sorrento. The restaurant is first class, the staff are so kind and helpful. The hotel is small and friendly. It is best suited to couples and people who want a relaxing break in beautiful surroundings. A few of the previous reviews comment on the lack of activities for children at this hotel. For me this was one of the assets of this hotel. If you don't want to be surrounded by screaming children, and want a restful break with great food, facilities and service this is the hotel for you!

We have just returned from a brilliant two week stay at this hotel. After reading previous reviews we were a little concerned that we would be disappointed but not a bit of it!

We arrived late at night to find that a meal had been provided and we were quickly shown to our room on the top floor. The room was quite spacious and had a small balcony overlooking the mountains at the back of the hotel. The en-suite was as expected - mid range hotels in Italy always have compact showers - but it was very clean and the water was always hot.

The location of the hotel was not as described in the brochure being in the suburbs rather than in a village location, but this has its advantages. We quickly found the alternative walk into Sorrento to avoid walking along the Corsa Italia which is of course very busy. Being on holiday, there was no need to rush and with temperatures of c.35 degrees every day, we were happy to stroll for 15 to 20 minutes into Sorrento, which is also very busy.

In between doing the usual trips to Amalfi and Capri etc, we had plenty of time to soak up the sun by the small pool or on the roof where there are sunbeds and a large gazebo with tables and chairs. To our surprise, we found that wherever you are in the hotel you can order snacks and drinks which are delivered by the cheerful and helpful staff. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they went to great lengths to ensure that every guest had everything they needed for a great holiday.

We ate in the restaurant each night and found that the food was imaginative, fresh, beautifully presented and - hot! Past experience has shown that food in Italy is not normally served hot but not at La Pergola. Throughout the two weeks of our stay we were not served the same meal twice and breakfast often included bacon and eggs and croissants too!

Overall, our stay was excellent, we loved Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast and the management and staff of the Hotel La Pergola contributed in no small part to our enjoyment.

We booked this hotel as it was cheap and in a good location- near the beaches, Pompeii, Vesuvius, Capri, Ischia and a trip to Rome is also possible.

We were using the hotel purely for a base- everyday we went out to different places. The train station is very easy to reach as is Sorrento (we used the bus to get into Sorrento- the road was very busy and I wouldn't have liked to have walked along it).

The staff were very friendly and helpful. We didn't use the air conditioning (extra cost), we just opened the doors before going to bed. Hotel was clean and comfortable. Our room was a bit dated, but as we only slept in it, it didn't bother us.

The food was really great- particularly the evening meals. Breakfast consisted of tea/coffee/juice/water, cereals, eggs, toast, rolls, cheese, meat, oranges, some cakes, yoghurt- typical continental. You chose your evening meal at breakfast from 3 choices- starters were usually pasta dishes and soup (you helped yourself to salad) and mains usually were fish, meat or more pasta. Desserts consisted of ice cream, fruit or a cake of some description. The themed nights were really great.

Evening entertainment was low key, but we did enjoy the quiz night.

We had a very enjoyable week at La Pergola.

The major let down for this hotel is its location. Sant Agnello is a residential suburb of Sorrento and a good 25 minute walk down an extremely busy road with an endless flow of traffic - hardly any of it stopping in Sant Agnello.

Don't believe the tourist blurb that this is a quaint little fishing village, because there's very little to keep you here. The only advantage is that the locals are friendly and the shops are cheaper.

As for the hotel, couldn't quite understand the rave reviews. It was clean and comfortable, rooms were a little dated, food was good but served in small portions.

If your looking at saving a bit of money and staying here, then don't bother. Just pay a little extra and stay in Sorrento.

we actually stayed 2003 clean hotel a school just a few yards away quite noisy sometimes a family run hotel some members helpful the elder members had favourite guests usually the more mature guests i feel. we usually go Ai but here thankfully BB. it was out of the way about 25 mins walk into sorrento quite a treck on holiday we spent quite a lot of time walking or hanging around for buses transport to town added a big expense to our holiday my husband went to a cafe every morning after 2nd day because he didnt like breakfast at hotel never did that before or since very basic other couples told us they wished they hadnt gone half board as the food was bland and repetitive
the [pool] was tiny not what we are used to it was a bit back street hotel they have enterainment twice weekly which was quite good in a different sort of way we got off the bus at the top of alley one afternoon although narrowish a car came up and bashed me accross the chest with its wing mirror i couldnt believe he couldnt see it wasnt wide enough for a car and me i loved southern italy for its history and trips pompeii/vesuvious was fantastic as was rome/capri/amalfi so
much to see the scenery was beautiful the bay of naples is ithink gorgeous but the hotel 100 per cent not for us there are two hotels only that had this effect this was one the other was in havanna old havanna but id still go back to that one because of its position on the malcome and so near attractions ideal to see the capital on a twin
break la pergola no no not for a holiday for us
