We booked with Thomson sometime ago at a pretty good price, compared with mid summer.
A friend of ours had stayed there last year and was very complimentary.
Unfortunately the weather was pretty dismal for the first half of our one weeks stay but improved as the week went on.
With the hotel being fairly high up the cloud level meant that at times it was pretty foggy, however, when clear the views were amazing.
The fantastic service and food, which the hotel staff provided, made the holiday experience a great one.
The restaurant was buffet for breakfast, with an omelette station if wanted, with all the usual dishes on offer - and to a very high standard. (Don’t know how one of the reviewers says that it compares with school food - she must have gone to a pretty good school if she does!)
Maitre D - Angelo was the focalpoint of the restaurant and he always made you feel special – although he will be dealing with thousands of holidaymakers throughout the year.
Waiters and waitresses were all extremely helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
Lunch was also buffet style but in the poolside outdoor area with a wood burinng pizza oven (pizzas were wonderful – compliments to the chef –
Dinner was probably the best with both a menu service and buffet.
The menu changed each day. The food was wonderful.
On some nights there were theme events such as Red Carpet or Fusion and the restaurant was dressed accordingly.
Evening entertainment was provided by D n A who were extremely professional and as hotel entertainment goes were very good. Maybe a few other options as well as the duo would help but they couldn’t be faulted.
As with all the other staff the bar staff were always around to serve drinks quickly and with a friendly smile.
Beer was draught Peroni, spirits were both local and international brands.
Wines were red, white or sparkling and that’s about all I can say. Tried the white once but didn’t like it,didn’t try the red and the sparkling was a Spumante that went down OK with the evening meal.
You were more likely to be served with a bottle or two, rather than a glass or two.
The reception staff were also helpful.
My wife and our two friends find it difficult to find fault with this hotel.
As previously stated on another review it isnt a 5 star hotel but is definitely a very good 4 star.
The courtesy buses are free into Sorrento and back with a good timetable.
Last but not least we should not forget Alessandro the Thompson representative who looked after us during our stay – one of the best reps we have had for friendliness, helpfulness,professionalism and local knowledge.
