“Enjoyed our stay here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2013

We enjoyed our stay in Vico. A great baseto tour the area without having to pay the silly prices on the Amalfi Coast.
Although we booked to stay in the Cubo apartments we ended up in the owners other property further up the hill. The apartment was large and well furnished and we had almost everything we needed. i think a small kitchen would have been a real bonus.
We had dinner in the restaurant once. The food was good but the service was very slow.
Breakfast was taken on the terrace every day. Not a lot of choice but more than enough of everything that was on offer. Lovely, helpful owners who took a lot of time to ensure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Check where you will really be sleeping. They do not seem to advertise the fact they have another p...

I have to say I will take the necessary time to write this review, as it really affected our trip.
So, my father invited my family (mother, brother and I) to a trip through Italy, and he invested a lot of money and time into planning this trip. He is a 60 year old man that is really detailed about what he wants. He looked at everu city we visited for the best hotel in our budget. When it came to Vico Equense, we were actually looking into staying in Positano, but found what looked like a beautiful hotel in Vico Equense, the Cubo apartments. He made the respective reservation through Booking.com, where he asked for an apartment for 4 adults of 140m2 with sea view that was still in our budget. Booking gave us a reservation code and everything was ok. We afterwards received an email from Cubo, saying that the room that was still available for us had no view, so they had an offer for us: for the same amount of money, they could offer us two big rooms in better hotel: the Crown Plaza with spectacular view. My father thought this was a good trade, and decided to go ahead after various talks, as they insisted this was a great deal, and that they had now no available apartment for us. Also, they asked for us to pay at Cubo and they were going to pay the Crown Plaza themselves as there was a "difference" that they were going to pay, as the rooms were supposed to be more expensive than the price of the apartment.
We got to Sorrento, and went directly to the Cubo, and the owner took us to the Crown Plaza. When we got there we found out there was a "misunderstanding" and the rooms they had for us were 2 small not connected rooms. Each of 24m2. So you can now see that we were paying the same price of an 140m2 apartment for two small bedrooms of 24m2. The onwer apologized and could not believe they had done this to him but also said there was no other option as he had nothing to offer us at Cubo. Also, at NO point did they said these smaller rooms were cheaper than the ones we supposedly had reserved, no... the difference was only for the Cubo owner who insteda of paying a difference of 160 euros he only paid 90. So to sum up: He absorved the money difference but we were the ones who were screwed. The cherry of the story is that the owner said he felt so bad, that he invited us to have dinner at Cubo one of our 3 nights there for the inconvenience... We thought, this was not fair but a nice gesture, so not to stay on a bad side we went there on our second night. When we arrived he was there to greet us, we ordered, the check came... He was no where to be seen. So, my father went ahead and payed for the 70 euro check. I (naive) thought he will discount it from the final check of the rooms. But when we had to check out of the Crown Plaza (where he instructed us no to pay, but to pay at Cubo before we left) the people from Crown Plaza said this person had asked us to pay at Crown Plaza and that he was coming later to settle his number. So, if you make the final numbers, with the dinner we paid at Cubo, he had a 20euro difference. From our side: we had to sleep 4 adults in 2 24m2 rooms. Spent 1 of our 3 nights at a restaurant we didn't want, spent 70euros on that dinner and also went through this awful ordeal of discussions and disagreements that affected our stay.
DO NOT TRUST THEM. They sound nice, but are true scammers.

Cubo Apartments are family operated an Alfonso, Anna and their daughters run the apartments in a warm and welcoming way.

We stayed three nights using Vico Equense as a base for visiting Vesuvius & the Roman sites and the Sorrentina Peninsula. Getting to the town is very easy although the location for the apartments was not accurately shown on our navigation system or Google Maps (not the fault of the apartments of course!)

The apartments are on the main road through Vico Equense directly opposite a new underground parking garage. Parking is easy and a daily rate is available from Cubo.

The apartments themselves are clean, bright and well designed. The views from the apartment windows back over the bay to Vesuvius are terrific. Our room faced the main street which was noisy if the windows were opened, but with the double glazed windows closed & shutters drawn at night this dropped to negligible levels. This was the only detracting thing in the whole stay.

The food offered in the bistro is fantastic. The sushi is prepared in traditional Japanese manner (not westernised) and compares well to anywhere outside Japan. The local menu uses produce from Anna & Alfonso's garden and it is well worth eating whatever is in season at the moment. We ate both in the courtyard at ground level and on the rooftop terrace which offers stunning views.

I had several great conversations with the staff and really enjoyed the welcoming atmosphere. For this alone I would go back again, though I would love to try one of the rooms at the rear which offer better views of the landscape.

Room Tip: Rooms on the sea side have best views and I guess would be quieter.

What a great apartment, very nice owners, beautiful town and excellent food at the Cubo restaurant!
We were with a group of 10 (4 adults and 6 children) and we have stayed in a huge, nice and stylish 300m2 apartment of Cubo. This apartment is just 100 meters away of their main building and restaurant.

We have had a brilliant time. The area is very nice with Pompei, Herculaneum, Naples, Sorrento, Capri. Lot of things to see and to do. For the food, you don't have to move. By far the best food is at Cubo apartments. Lovely home made pasta, great meat and fish and home made Lemoncello from their own organic lemons! Yes, one evening you can go the "famous" L' universita della pizza (with their 1m2 pizza) but the rest of the evenings, .... the Cubo restaurant.

Same goes for the breakfast with a nice variety of choices (which is not very common in Italy). I can recommend the home made lemon pie.

We will go back to this area and we will for sure stay at this place.

We have just arrived home from our trip to Italy staying at Cubo apartments. We have had a brilliant time. The apartment was beautiful and extremely stylish and the family were the most lovely Italians we have ever met. They made us feel at home right from the start and continued their hospitality right through the trip, always greeting us with a smile and a chat.

The apartment was stunning with its own balcony and views over the sea. The restaurant, also run by the family served excellent Italian food, the best we have had with the vegetables grown in the families' garden!

The roof terrace was a beautiful place to sit and eat or drink in the evenings with a perfect view of Mount Vesuvius.

The location of the apartments is great, close (but not too close) to the train station with direct links to Sorrento, Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius.

Vico Equense is a lovely town to stay in with true Italian lifestyle on show. Relatively few tourists here compared to Sorrento and a perfect location to explore the area from.

Definitely recommended by us!

Stay at Cubo and you'll have a wonderful holiday. The apartments are clean and modern. We stayed in America - had very high expectations and these were all met.

The staff/ family very helpful, from the feasts at breakfast to transporting us around to the local beaches. They offered great advice and it is truly a very friendly experience.

The restaurant is worth a trip too.

The terrace at the top is lovely too for an evening drink as the sun sets.

One thing to note is America is street side. We were already up early with the kids, however those who might like lie ins might not get one, due to traffic on a busy road.

Also no high chair for kids. This would have been very useful.
