I don't like to use the word 'nice' when describing things but I feel this is an adequate word to describe this hotel as it was not amazing, neither was it poor. My partner and I arrived at the hotel to be given a room on the side of the hotel facing the road. Needless to say we were disappointed so requested to be moved. We were given a room in the villa adjacent to the hotel which we were happier with. This included a good size bathroom and balcony (much better than the size in the hotels).
The staff in the hotel were generally quite friendly. We did feel though that as a young couple some of the staff did not necessarily know how to communicate with us or maybe did not try as hard to communicate with us?
The food at the hotel isn't bad but I would strongly recommend to try some of the restaurants in Sant Agata and Sorrento as the food is on another level. Mimi's in Sant Agata does probably the best steak I've eaten in my life for 13 Euros. The Parrucchiano in Sorrento is probably the most beautiful restaurant I have ever set foot in as the decor includes surroundings of lemon, orange and lime trees.
Overall this hotel is pleasant but I would definitely say it is more a 3 then 4 star which the hotel states it is.
The pool area is small but clean (the pool is freezing though)! One good point about the pool area was the fact free towels were provided which was very handy.
