“Horrible experience!”
Reviewed 10 October 2011

I upgraded to an double sea view room which was below the restuarant and above the large viewing deck. The first night i was there, there was a wedding that was in the restuarant above my room and the noise from the chairs echos in the room. The wedding then moved outside with a dj that was right outside the room which went until 1 pm. Then at 6am the following morning they began moving chairs around in the restuarant getting ready for breakfast then everyone came in for breakfast. The noise is so loud there is no way to sleep. When i complained to the manager he refused to help and told me to complain to Expedia. I didnt even get an apology! The second night was a repeat of the first, wedding, dinner, reception, dj, breakfast. I cant believe i actually upgraded to get this room and couldnt sleep either night. Overall it is a beatiful hotel, the rooms are old and not upgraded. Staff was unhelpful and even rude. I asked if there was a store nearby to buy sodas. I was told i could get soda at the bar. When i asked that i wanted to buy sodas in cans to take to my room, i was told there was no where close to buy any. There is actually a store within a block from the hotel. I felt this was the worst of six hotels i stayed in during my two week trip. Ive traveled all over europe and his was my worst experience ever. Pick another hotel closer to Sorrento (its a 20 min walk and buses are random and cabs are expensive), this is outdated, and has unhelpful staff and certainly dont upgrade to a better room - its a ripoff!

Room Tip: Pick another hotel or dont upgrade.

My wife and I are from Pennsylvania, and we have traveled to Sorrento several times in the past. We absolutely love it there. On one occasion we brought our grown children with us and our youngest said, "some day, when I get married, I'd love to have my wedding here."
Well, fast foreward 10 years and her dream has become a reality. Thanks to a fantastic wedding planner, Silvia Schiappa, and her company, Flowers and Confetti, my daughter's dream came true beyond all expactations.
I can't say enough about the Hotel Corallo that Silvia recommened, and their wonderful staff, including her husband Michele who is the food and beverage manager. They did an unbelievable job of coordinating everything from the cerimony to the reception, including accomodating the over sixty guests that accompanied us.
The entire staff was exceptional, and the entire experience was nothing short of magical!

We spent 3 nights here, one of which was our anniversary. I wish I could have stayed longer.
Our room was absolutely beautiful, with a spectacular view of the ocean from our balcony.
Staff was very courteous, helpful and friendly.Emanuella (reception) greeted us with a smile,
professional, and welcoming. Enza (reception) too, as well as Giovanni, Giuseppe, all the staff from the dinning room.
Going to the Piazza in Sorrento was a short drive (we rented a car in Rome as we were also visiting family). Many of my pictures are of the Hotel Corallo, I recommend this hotel and I plan to return.

Room Tip: deluxe room with balcony, and sea view a must!

We spent two nights at this hotel. Very clean, nice location. We had a room on the 3rd floor. Delux room, with stunning views of the sea. Staff very helpful. Hotel nicely decorated. Easy to find from Sant 'Agnello. Easy to reach Sorrento. Only negative thing was the noise, but once you accept that Italians like to talk, you are unlikely to have any problems. Weather was wonderful. Would like to have had tea & coffee facilities in the room, but it was not an issue. Giovanni and Enza were very helpful, as were all the staff.
We would highly recommend this hotel. We will certainly return.

Room Tip: 3rd floor room lovely view but noisy

We've spent our honeymoon in this hotel and we liked the place a lot - there was a beautiful view, helpful staff and it was also easy to get to Capri, Pompei, Naples, etc.

We stayed for a week wish it was longer the staff are lovely, the views are stunning and the beach next door was perfect,much better than having a pool.
If you choose to stay here ,you have found a very special place to stay , the views alone, would be enough, take no notice of nit picking reviews, Thank you to all the staff in the restaurant the food was wonderful!

Room Tip: Room 279 has an excellent view of vesuvieus

We actually booked in the Hotel Mediteraneo across the street, but had requested sea view, so they put us in the Corallo, which they said was their sister hotel. The entire hotel definitely has an incredible seaside view. Lobby is very nice. Rooms are small and a bit dated, but quaint and cozy with a nice balcony opening to that view. The service is very friendly. The hotel is in a quiet area, good for beautiful walks along the cliff top with views all around, but it's a 20 minute walk to the town center and it's $20 bucks each way for cab fare. Next door is a walkway down to a sunning/swimming deck with bar/cafe. Nice restaurant with the views for breakfast, and the restaurant in the Mediterraneo across the street has the best dinner with live music. We toured Italy for 2 weeks on our honeymoon and this was our favorite stay.
