fantastic view of Bay of NapoliPosted Nov 1, 2012 on Hotels.com
Even in the rain, the view was fantastic. The surrounding 'forest' was from a fairy tale. The staff was cooperative and attempted to meet our every need. The food at the villa was delicious.
Beautiful roomsPosted Jun 26, 2012 on Hotels.com
Luigi and Anna- Marie were very kind and helpful (allowed me to store my bags there for 4 nights while I toured around the Amalfi coast)!! The private transport they porvided down to Sorrento was much appreciated, though I did walk up to the resort twice in the heat of the day, along a lovely lane but steep (andt busy at times with scooters)! A very nice breakfast was provided too! Great private balcony with glimpse of the sea (other rooms had better sea views)

don't risk itPosted Oct 27, 2011
Location: Sorrento itself-really relaxing and charming excellent for people watching, ice creams, pastries and clothes shops.Go to eat lunch at the Foreigner's Club- fabulous views over bay of Naples good food reasonbly priced. The Mona Lisa restaurant is very pleasant in the evening good prices and food and friendly service.( don't use the restaurant next door- incredibly rude and pushy) Go on bus to Amalfi -must be one of the most fabulous drives in the world. Well worth taking boat down coast to Amalfi as well or to Capri. Don't miss the Island of Ishcia - more interesting than Capri
The views from this guest house are amazing as it is situated in the hills above Sorrento however its position means you are totally dependent on very infrequent shuttle or local buses to get in and out of Sorrento. There are no transport services to get you into town in time for organised tours though you can visit the area by public transport. There is absolutely no where nearby to eat out or buy food. The last half mile of the road is unbelievably narrow, steep and twisting so if you try to walk you risk being flattened by motor bikes constantly going up and down. Taxis can't get up this road you need to wait in a parking lot below for the hotel to pick you up in their narrow cars. We were kept waiting for nearly half an hour to be picked up on our arrival. We booked a double room with sea view but were given a small room with no sea view then left with our cases in a corridor to wait over an hour for a different room. Re food - there were good home made jams at breakfast and sometimes home made bread, otherwise croissants burnt black and processed cheese slices in plastic were not appertising. It was possible to eat there in the evenings. Some guests did and said the food was excellent. We were not able to try it as despite having a garden full of vegetables and serving meat free meals to other guests we were told they didn't serve vegetarian meals. Some guests were worried about the cost of meals as there was no menu or reliable way to find out the cost.
