Just returned from a fabulous week in Sorrento staying at the beautiful Grand Hotel Riviera. We wanted an hotel with a view and were not disappointed. Our room was a standard, it was beautifully decorated and very comfortable, The staff were very helpful and friendly and the service in the bar and restaurant were excellent. The breakfast buffet was substantial with lots of choice and made all the more special by the view from the breakfast terrace. The hotel is about 10 minutes walk from the main square of Sorrento. We loved it and would definitely return.

This secluded resort really blew us both away; hidden in a cove down from Vico Equence gave it a very relaxed atmosphere, surrounded by beautiful cliffs and sea overlooking Mount Vesuvius. The hotel itself was lovely, well decorated with a mix of old and new style. The facilities were great and staff very welcoming who were happy to fulfil every request. The hotel private beach was lovely, mainly pebble but the sea was so close you weren’t walking in it for very long. There were mainly Italian guests at the resort which in my view is a good sign. The hotel restaurant although expensive was exquisite, the chef was amazing. The hotel is a short (though uphill walk) to Vico Equence, but the hotel offers a shuttle whenever you need it which will take you into town or the train station.
It’s the perfect base to explore the surrounding areas, like Sorrento, Positano and Amalfi, as well as the excavation areas of Pompeii and Herculaneum (the latter is the better site in our opinion)
The public transport system here is amazing and very cheap, catch the SITA bus if you intend to explore the Amalfi coast it was 6 euros each for the day and you catch this in Sorrento just outside of Sorrento train station.
I would recommend this resort to anyone; we had the most amazing time here in this beautiful hotel and hope to return one day in the future.

We spent 4 days at this hotel during our 2 week trip to the Amalfi coast, the location was perfect and within easy reach of Ravello town square.
The staff were all very attentive and helped us to gain the best experience we could in the short time we were there.

The hotel is perfect for folks who want the beach more than anything else. It does have a private beach just down the steps from the hotel's deck. The beach is well taken care of - on the last day we saw a small bulldozer leveling the pebbles. That's right - pebbles. You won't find good sand anywhere in Sorrento.
The hotel is way off the main drag, but it has a free-during-the-day, 1 euro at night shuttle that goes back and forth every hour and takes you right to downtown Sorrento. Note that there's a no-shuttle window between 6:30 and 10 pm to get back to the hotel. The shuttle was always on time, sometimes early, and it makes you appreciate and admire Italian driving. :) The shuttle rides takes ~15 minutes.
Do contact the hotel prior to your arrival if you are arriving by train and arrange for the shuttle pickup.
Most of the guests in the hotel were older folks - in fact, other than me and my wife and another young married couple, everybody else was in the 50s-60s-... You won't find any nightlife activities at the hotel or in the surrounding area. They had live music every night - typical Italian repertoire. So if action is what you are after, stay in Sorrento (this hotel is technically speaking is located in Meta). Not that there's much action at night anyway - we saw ads for a couple of clubs, but didn't get a sense that there was much to do after the dinner.
So, to summarize, if you want the beach in Sorrento, this hotel is a great choice.
