Visited The Nastro Azzurro last year but have only just got around to writing this review (new ish to trip advisor)!
We loved our stay at this hotel. Everything from start to finish was great. The service was excellent from both the reps and the hotel staff, all of which were extremely helpful. The hotel itself is split up into different blocks and i think actually staying in the main hotel the rooms are a bit newer and nicer overall. We were not in the main hotel block but this was not a big deal. The Room was still nice but maybe a little dated however the rest of the hotel made up for this. We were also situated nearer the pool area which is a great size and has a fab bar area and views.
We spent half of our holidays by the pool and like most places the earlier you get up the better place you get by the pool although we didn't find that a massive problem as there was always space available. The pool is clean and everything is fresh and service prompt.
All inclusive holidays can be a bit sketchy but the food here we thought was amazing. We loved breakfast, lunch by the pool and dinner. Plenty of choice and not the same choices each day which was refreshing compared to other all inc. places we have visited.
Having fresh stone baked pizzas by the pool was a highlight for me! (love a pizza).
The hotel also offers a variety of activities going on all the time or if you fancy a chill out away from the pool area you wont be hard pressed to find comfortable seating in the gardens or try out the hot tubs.
Excursions are planned through the hotel and are not badly priced. We decided on the day trip to mount Vesuvius in the morning and Pompeii in the afternoon. This was a fantastic day but if your going in the height of summer it is VERY hot and hard work climbing up a mountain and such but will worth it.
We also explored on our own the city of Sorrento which is a short bus drive away which the hotel put on multiple times a day (for free) and then navigated our way to the Isle of Capri which was beautiful but again a steep climb to reach the central town so be prepared.
I would advise eating at least once in Sorrento Restaurants and if you ate one meal you should try Ristorante 'O Parrucchiano La Favorita an amazing little gem which is cheap and has a fantastic setting. Check out trip advisor for more on it
The evening entertainment at the hotel is great, we ate by candlelight near the pool a couple of times which was lovely and also the evening entertainment is fun and varied but if like me you prefer to watch from afar then enjoy great cocktails by the bar.
Overall this was an amazing holiday at a great destination accompanied by well run and rightfully highly sort after hotel. We want to come back next year!
