We arrived at the hotel in the early hours of the morning (2:30) we was offered a drink & a cold dinner we knew we was going to enjoy our holiday.
The hotel is nestled in the mountain overlooking sorrento we had a wonderful sea view on the second floor. It's a perfect location on the ss145 easy to access the amalfi coast and 10 minutes from sorrento.
Our room was traditional as the rest of the hotel is, spacious & spotlessly clean with comfortable enough beds and extra pillows requested were no problem. Clean & fresh linen with towel changes every couple of days. There is also a fridge in the room and to use the air conditioning just ask reception to switch it on for you it's free.
The restaurant was excellent a good choice for breakfast, and dinner was a la carte which you chose at breakfast. If you don't have a good appetite it's a good idea to skip the starter and have the salad bar instead which was all very fresh & the desert trolley was to die for! The drinks throughout the bar & restaurant were reasonably priced and a good wine selection. We also enjoyed the weekly 'sorrento themed evening'.
The pool area is clean with plenty of sun-loungers probably could do with a few more parasols.
The hotel offers excursions and a free return bus service into sorrento which is great if your not driving! Just up the road is the local village which has some great bars & shops & local wine at just 3 euros for a litre, naturally sparkling it was superb.
All of the staff were fantastic, very helpful & polite and nothing was a problem, they even offered us an extra few hours in one of our rooms as we returned home on a late flight.
If we ever returned to sorrento we would stay here, for sure!
