dissapointed on arrival, had requested sea view room, which we got, but the site I booked with didn`t advise that not all rooms have balconies.... ours didn`t.The reception staff were very good and we did manage to change rooms the next day, (although this did cost us 30 euros extra per day.) Shower and bath are on the small side, and shower head difficult to get to stay upright when the water is on. Balcony as it was was tiny, but a balcony none the less. Rooms cleaned daily by very pleasent staff, with nice smiling faces.
The view was good, although slightly obscured by the building opposite, (not shown on the hotel brochure) and unfortunately six of the seven days we were there the road infront of the hotel was being dug up, not the hotel`s fault I know,.... they gave us a complimentary drink at the bar for the inconvenience,though I would rather not have been charged the full 30 euro per day for my change of room.
We didn`t eat at the hotel outwith breakfast, though I must say what we had was very good. Anything you could possibly want for breakfast was there and plenty of it, restaurant staff were pleasant and attentive, the view from the dining room was excellent. Happy hour at the bar was nice, discounted drinks and free nibbles to enjoy before dinner. Regular bar prices were very reasonable and the bar staff, (except one young guy who I am sure was drunk acouple of times when he was working!!), were fabulous...Dani we hope you are doing Okay.
The courtesy bus was helpfull (as is the bus driver) if you got fed up walking into Sorrento, which takes a good 15/20 mins. only down side is that if you`ve been on the go all day and start heading back about 6ish....there is no bus, there is one around 4.30 and I think the next one is around 7.( Don`t take a taxi!!!! 20 euros, give or take for a 5 min. journey.)
nice pool area with plenty loungers, and always quiet, there is so much to see and do I don`t suppose people spend there days sunbathing! Concierge is a lovely man and on the whole the desk staff are very helpfull and attentive, although was a bit miffed no one actually asked if we had enjoyed our stay when we were checking out, almoust as if "your leaving now so we don`t have to impress you anymore". as I said we enjoyed our stay, it just lacked something. We loved Sorrento and the amalfi coast, who wouldn`t? but if we returned we wouldn`t use this hotel again, for the money paid it just didn`t tick all the boxes.
