I had a feeling that when I read all the comments on Antico Casale Russo that much depends upon the staff. Ours was definitely an experience to behold. All the staff (even the youngest) speak only Italian and then we could not understand anything. No one around could translate for us because most were from North America or anywhere else in Europe. I understood that this was a hotel, not a deaf center!
The website had a picture of a swimming pool ... So we thought we could use it ... But there is no pool!
In addition to our arrival there was no one there to welcome us! We had to wait for check-in (slowly) without even a complimentary welcome drink! The breakfast is very poor with lousy service.
The Amalfi Coast is is beautiful to visit for sure, but please make sure to book a hotel with more efficient services and where there is more communicability.
So our advice would be to get a tour of Sorrento and surroundings but not to stay at the Antico Casale Russo because the quality of the service is inconsistent.

Antico Casale Russo was built between the end of XVIII and the beginning of XIX century, in the classical style of Sorrento farmhouses. Nowadays a wise makeover has returned it in his old glory. However it offers all the modern reliefs. Antico Casale Russo is also ideal location for little cerimonies, like First Communions, baptisms, degree and majority parties. Also in this case, we will offer you assistance in all the ceremony phases. ... more less
