We stayed here for our honeymoon from 12th - 23rd August 2013. It was perfect from start to finish. We'd read all the other reviews but wasn't expecting it to be so wonderful. From the minute we got there all of the staff went out of their way to make our holiday something special. On arrival we were taken through to lunch. The food here deserves a review all of its own! My husband is a meat-eater while I am vegetarian. There was a ton of things to choose from every day - pasta, fish, meat on a barbeque, pizza, olives, vegetables, fruit, and an ice cream bar that served the most delicious ice cream. We were then taken to our room which had been decorated complete with a 'Mr and Mrs Smith' sign on our door. These thoughtful little touches were really sweet of the hotel to do and made our honeymoon feel really special.
Our room was beautiful, modern with a massive bed and mood lighting. The bathroom was also massive, and the cleaners did a great job of keeping the room smart and clean during our stay. They even tidied up my shoes for me. Little touches again but we both really appreciated them, and they were always so friendly and polite when we saw them during the day.
On our second day we did the tour of Sorrento with the Thomson rep who was really lovely and it was nice to be showed around. Sorrento is definately the sort of place you can get lost in. The little streets reminded us of a Venice without canals. Jane the rep also showed us to the most magnificent ice cream parlour which served over 30 flavours of ice cream. Perfect!!
The evening meals were really special. Most nights had a theme - take lots of different colours to wear! Some of these included 'love night' and 'Italy night'. There is a huge buffet of food to choose from each night, cold and hot pasta, pizza, lots of different fish, meats, breads, AND you get to choose a three course meal from a menu which is served by waiters. The food here really is to die for and we were spoiled every single night. Sometimes all inclusive hotels can be a bit dingy where food is concerned - not this hotel. Me and my husband absolutely LOVED the food here every day. There were also a couple of party nights around the pool where the food is served outside. It was really romantic eating our meal looking out over the sea, and the staff really went out of their way (again) to make every moment enjoyable!
The pool area is clean and beautiful, it really does look like something out of the holiday brochures. The waiters are always at hand to bring you drinks and take away your empty glasses. You don't even have to move if you don't want to. It was so peaceful and relaxing, and the views over the coast line are just stunning.
We did a trip to Capri organised by Thomson. We paid a little extra for a smaller more exclusive boat that fitted just 12 of us on there, so we had this huge boat to our ourselves, caught from the harbour down in Sorrento. The driver gave us a guided tour of the coast line and we got to Capri in just under two hours. It's a really, really special place, so beautiful and relaxing. The shops were amazing, and the restaurants and bars were wonderful. But it was the views from both the boat, and Capri, that will stay with us forever. We took so many photos, and I don't think either of us will ever forget that day.
Everything about this hotel is perfect. The rooms, the location, THE FOOD, the pool, the drinks (husband was impressed with Nastro Azzurro Peroni beer being on all inclusive!!) and the staff. Our thanks go to every single one of them, the waiters, bar staff, cleaners, reception staff, for making our honeymoon so very perfect. We will have the memories from our honeymoon forever and we couldn't have dreamed of anything better. Thank you! xxx
