Great staff, 25 min walk from central Sorrento
Posted Jun 27, 2013
The staff at this hotel were friendly, helpful, welcoming and hard-working from the word go. They ensured that we had everything we needed to have a good time away, provided a superb service and were happy to offer advice on local areas.
Located on a fairly quiet cobbled side street, away from the busy main street. Our room was a good size with plenty of seating and storage space, and as far as I could tell, each room has a balcony. Ours looked out over the front of the hotel with amazing views over yonder hills. The cliff tops are at the other end of the road about 5 minutes walk away - the views from there are incredible and offer a perfect spot to watch the sunset.
Lovely and clean all round with a smallish pool but big enough for cooling off in the afternoon heat, and surrounded by loungers with an area for al fresco dining. The indoor bar area could be a bit more welcoming if it wasn't so bright but that's my only quibble with the hotel itself.
Sant' Agnello (where the hotel is - just outside Sorrento) has plenty of handy resources and is on several of the main bus routes (notably the Naples airport bus) but buses pass through less frequently on Sunday's/holidays so in this case it's better to catch one from Sorrento central railway station. It took us about 1/2 hour along a busy road with narrow, uneven pathways to walk to central Sorrento so perhaps not ideal if you have young children, although I believe most organised tours will pick-up and drop-off from hotels.
