Great hotel with amazing views and staff.
Posted Apr 23, 2017
The room we had was a garden view, with balcony and as it was on the side and the nearest to the sea we also had a sea view from the balcony. It was quiet and a very spacious, clean and uncluttered room. Retro in design. We had a complimentary bowl of fruit on arrival, and chocolates each evening. Bath robes & slippers provided. Small fridge in room, tea coffee making facilities. The breakfast buffet was excellent, fresh, plentiful & lots of choice (only thing we weren't too keen on was the streaky bacon which was coated in oil, and the tiny hot dog type sausages). The pastries and cakes were delicious. Lots of bread choices, cereal, fruit & yogurt. Coffee good. Breakfast room is by the cliff edge and has amazing panoramic views of the coastline, Vesuvius and Capri. Wi-if was very disappointing, fine for downloading emails but very slow and no good for streaming. TV reception was poor and only Italian channels except CNN & BBC news. The pool area and lounge jetty by the sea are lovely, lots of beach towels. Bar area by both. Cafe area by the 'beach' was not open during our stay, so we can't comment on that. Gardens beautifully kept. Lovely patio area with views as in breakfast room. Large indoor seating area, with bar service. Well equipped gym. Short walk from Sorrento centre - the hotel have a complimentary shuttle bus to the bus station if you don't want to walk (you can also pay to get to the port - 5 euros). Staff were lovely and nothing was too much trouble.
