Nice hotel. Excellent staff.Posted May 5, 2016
Pros: Beautiful setting.
Cons: Older hotel. Minor issues with being older.
Location: It is a little on the outside of town. But, it is close to the train station and the rooms are very quiet. Breakfast was killer good.
Staff could not have been more cheerful or upbeat. They we very helpful and all spoke excellent English. Breakfast started off every day with fresh orange juice from their own trees. My wife doesn't care for orange juice and drank it every morning. I would not pay extra for a ocean view again. The hotel sits back from the ocean about 300 yards, so no rooms are on the water. Other than that, I wouldn't change a thing.

A Hotel with character and historyPosted Oct 8, 2015
Pros: The building and landscaping is beautiful. Location to town and shopping was great.
Location: Site seeing and people watching in and around the square. Great location and local history. Guest at the hotel were fun to meet and to converse with.
Everyone at the hotel and restaurant's were friendly and helpful. Scheduling tours from the hotel was wonderful. We highly recommend chartering the Tall Ship named Vera. The cruise was quite memorable for us. Be sure to pack your swimsuit and take your chances swimming through one of the caves.

Lovely Hotel tPosted Sep 5, 2015
Pros: Customer Service attention to detail
Location: Location is great away from the noise and bustle of Sorrento - Lots to do in the Sorrento Naples area, historic sites and island visits
Stayed at this hotel for two weeks, on honeymoon the staff were friendly and helpful and I can honestly say its the best customer service I have experienced in any 5 star hotel I have stayed in - The building was amazing and the gardens and pool area were relaxing - I also enjoyed sitting by the terrace and look over tat the stunning view of the bay of = Naples. I would highly recommend this hotel for a relaxing break

Total ripoff. Horrible hotel needs to be renovatedPosted Aug 30, 2015
First I want to say the staff are extremely polite and helpful. With that said the hotel itself is probably one of the most rundown I have ever seen. I have been all over the world and I have stayed at many 5 star hotels and this one honestly other than the staff should never get a five star. It's a shame to because the location is beautiful. I'm actually pretty mad that I spent 3000.00 for 5 nights here! And the people that keep posting 5 stars... shame on you!!! I booked this hotel based on your reviews. The pictures that are clearly misleading on Expedia and other sights are not the ones you should go by. Trust me. The rooms are old with a odd mix of broken down ancient furniture, ugly old pictures, extremely uncomfortable beds and really awful decor. If you can even call it that. It's not clean by my standards. The rooms smell musty and some smell extremely bad. We looked at 5 rooms until we finally settled on one that was at least livable. We couldn't wait to leave the whole time we stayed there. Such a waste of money and ruined the end of our trip. There are cracks and patched walls that were never painted. Bathrooms have mold and disgusting shower curtains. The grounds are so overgrown and in serious need of a gardener or probably a fleet of gardeners at this point. The vegetation needs to be cut back so you can actually see the ocean. The trees are so overgrown. The pool is horrid. Cracks and holes and crumbling inside the liner. It's really disgusting. The old lift

A hotel of 2 halves!Posted Aug 18, 2015
If you book a Classic room, make sure its one of the reburbished ones! We were put in an old room on the 3rd floor with mould on the walls, wall paper peeling off, framed pieces of wall paper on the wall (???!!!), make shift furniture (the bed wasnt attached to the head board) and our broken safe was replaced with a handbag sized removeable one - very convienient! Horrible, ghostly and felt dirty - the rug felt like it was made of 100 years of nun's hair!! Not the photo of the Classic room on the website. After a night sleeping with one eye open, we were moved to a refurbished room on the 2nd floor - what a difference! 2nd floor was lovely, great room, lovely hallway - this was the hotel i thought i had booked and the reviews i had read! Overall (ignoring the horrendous start that left me crying at reception and looking to check out before we'd checked in!), staff are delightful, food is good (Japanese resturant on the sea front is lovely), pool is big and in a lovely setting but old and the bottom is cracked and broken up. The gym is a time warp from the 80's but i dont think anyone uses it. The spa looked dingy and i never saw anyone down there. Its a good location, close to town but with space and quiet - the shuttle is excellent, just call (before 10.30pm) and they come pick you up/drop you off in town. I would recommend it, but just dont go to the 3rd floor!!!!!
