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.
