beautiful viewPosted Mar 4, 2014 on Hotels.com
great view, staff speak good english kind of a historic type hotel but really good atmosphere we loved it. Note: they don't really have good wifi signal the further away you move from the reception.

not bad for SorrentoPosted Jul 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
We just got back from a 2 week trip to Italy with a 2 night stay at Mar Hotel Alimuri. The hotel is a little away from downtown Sorrento but the free shuttle was very convenient to get to the centre of town. Beware that the last shuttle back is about 8:30 PM so if you miss it, the cab ride back is about 30 Euros.The room itself was a decent size. I wont classify this as a 4 star hotel but it was clean and the beds were decent. The beach area was small.. too much rocks for my liking but it must be the area. FREE PARKING was GREAT specially since they closed the gates for security reasons.

Nice stay...Posted Jul 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
This hotel is a nice place for a getaway. We ended up staying here last minute and it was a lovely decision. The hotel is a bit resort like but offers a free shuttle into town to have a change of scene. The shuttle is prompt and easy! There are many places to eat in Sorrento so the shuttle service was perfect for grabbing lunch and/or dinner. We were even able to carch the shuttle and walk to our ferry for Capri. The hotel staff was lovely and always helpful. There is a private beach and pool area to cool off in and access. The beach guy will set up a chair and umbrella for you when you arrive to the beach. The hotel's decor is a bit nautical and funky but it's fine. We were only there for one night so it didn't bother us. Overall, a wonderful place to be. Nice staff, location and clean rooms. Additionally, the prices are pretty reasonable. We would stay here again.

We had a wonderful stay at Mar Hotel Alimuri Spa. The views are amazing, the staff is wonderful and the food is great. The shuttle that is offered makes traveling to Sorrento easy.

A great choice for beach loversPosted Oct 6, 2012
Pros: The beach
Cons: A little off the main drag.
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.

Pros: Location near the sea
Cons: Absence of hot drinks
I have chosen the hotel for the beautiful location and private beach. The choice was probably right. The air there is very relaxing. We were in September and the sea was very warm, the weather was great. The people on reception are very helpfull and responsible. The rooms are clean. The only queer thing is restaurant and service there. It is very inconvinient (especially for breakfast) that we always should ask for hot drinks and not to take them on our own. The restaurant has no hot drinks at all: only slightly warm and it takes a lot of time for some of the waiters to bring it. The coffee range from bad to disgusting in taste. The breakfast is modest and just eatable. The good feature is plenty of fresh juices which one take on one's own. The dinner is also just eatable. The good thing in dinner is a lots of fruits. The waiters does not inform that the drinks are not included in the price of dinner (for not inclusive guests). So be ready to pay for every non drinkable thing they bring. The hotel is located 15-20 minutes walk uphill to Meta train station. There are two platforms in Meta. Trains to Napoli arrive on first platfrom. Trains to Sorrento arrive on first or second platform. In the latter case they make announcement. Trains not always follow time schedule (may be late on 10 minutes). If you stay with your face to platforms and your back to station, if train is going from your left, it means it goes to Napoli. If it goes from right side, it goes to Sorrento.

Good for beach access - and that's itPosted Jul 9, 2012 on Hotels.com
We stayed 4 nights in a suite in July '12. The location, while only a few km on a map, is about half an hour from Sorrento by the shuttle. The small shuttle this hotel has is usually booked - and we could not find room on the 8AM shuttle any day. Taxi to Sorrrento costs about 30 Euros. The buffet breakfast was barely edible - the baked goods were made with some form of whole wheat without any butter - and you can imagine how they taste. The coffee here, and most of Italy, is not very good - even the cappucinos - the beans they use are low quality - don't expect Colombian or Sumatra beans based coffee in Italy! The one good thing was the pool and the beach access - which is what most of the visitors (from northern europe here on packaged tours) seem to like. The Meta train stop on Circumvesuviana is the closest, but there are no taxis waiting outside - need to be able to call someone for that - and it's not walking distance at all. There seems to be an all inclusive option - that all the folks on the tour packages had. There is one restaurant next door - la Concha - that has good food - but very small portions - we had to each there 3 nights. The city of Sorrento has a couple of streets with the typical shops founds here and in Positano, Amalfi or Capri - nice to walk around there. Ultimately, deciding to stay here is a tradeoff - if all one wishes to do is lounge around on the beach this is a good choice; as a base for exploring the area is not optimal.

Sea front locationPosted Jul 1, 2009
Great hotel with fantastic sea front rooms overlooking the horizon...beach right on the doorstep and could hear the waves at night from the room.The sand was quite different than i expected having small pebbles rather than fine sand.The sea looked clean enough besides the pool is also available. The breakfast was great with lot of choice,Waiters were friendly and overall the Hotel was to my expectations. The only problem is the location ...there are no immediate restaurants near hotel and i would recommend tico tico and try to book a place upstairs with a fine view of the horizon sunset.The train station is a steep climb and could be sweety in summer...i did not find any taxis near Meta train station when i arrived so i had to make my way downhill to the hotel arriving well worn out going through narrow streets and two way traffic.Other wise i would go back anytime.
