Booked the Nastro Azzurro for our 10 night honeymoon via Thomson's and upgraded the room at the time of booking to the Occhio Marino complex. Arrived at a very busy Naples airport on 25th April as all UK flights seem to have come in at the same time, this causing a bit of confusion with distribution of coach allocation and transfers. Once on coach, transfer was lengthy (1.5 - 2 hours) due to time of day and amount of traffic. Arrived at hotel about lunchtime, check in was a bit of a muddle as there were so many people for the staff to deal with all at once. Allocated room 414, which as it was in the Occhio complex, was a 1 minute walk from the main building through the gardens etc. Once we got to the room, the hotel had provided a bottle of fizz and had hung a sign on the door to suggest we were 'just married'. The view from the ground floor balcony was scenic, looking south towards the Amalfi Coast. Room was clean and tidy and of a decent size. There was a queen size 4 poster bed, Tea & coffee facility and a TV/DVD player which you could borrow dvds if required. Each morning we had left the room, the maids came in to make up the bed etc and when we returned, would find a different towel creature on our bed, very clever !!.
Unfortunately, the weather was not the best or as we had anticipated as it rained most days we were there, the walk between the complexes could be a wet one if you don't have a coat or a umbrella.
The hotel is spread over large beautiful grounds with plenty of seating areas throughout the garden areas. There is a covered outside jacuzzi suite in the gardens, a outdoor unheated swimming pool with a covered food area and bar used throughout the day (weather permitting).
The food and hospitality was considered the best quality we have ever had whilst being on a holiday, let alone a honeymoon. We felt we were made welcome by all of the staff who ensured you had what you wanted at all times. All of the staff were friendly and helpful, and above all polite throughout our stay. Evening dinner was waiter service, choosing from a vast and varied menu each night with a choice of having the fresh buffet also. Food was delivered hot and cooked to order. It was often to difficult to choose your meal, as everything sounded and looked great. Be warned, you will put on weight at this resort !!
Drinks and dinner or at the bars were of a good quality with brand names available at no extra cost. Evening entertainment offered by the resident musical duo - The Boundios was of a very high quality and the best we have encountered in a hotel scenario. Themed nights meant that each night was different (EG - Hollywood Night, Love night etc)
In summary, we had the best time ever with the best food ever and some of the best hospitality we have encountered ever. Thanks to all of the staff especially Carmine, Luigi, Johnny who made our honeymoon so memorable - We shall return !!!
