The best! The absolute best!
Posted Jun 17, 2016 on Hotels
We travelled all over Italy on our honeymoon, and stayed in several different hotels. This was by far our mutual favorite! We arrived early and were greeted with fresh homemade lemonade and pastries in their outdoor seating area. Shortly thereafter, we were shown to our room. The photos are not an exaggeration. I was worried this was one of those cases where something looks better on the internet and might disappoint in person, but NO - it *really* is that light and airy and beautiful. The room and bathroom are spacious and the tiles are gorgeous. The breakfast was superb. In addition to a buffet set up at one end of the patio, they also request your personal preferences each night, so you can choose if you'd prefer pastries, cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit, cold cuts...a wide array of choices. You have your own personal assigned table, and it's wonderful to slowly start the day on a garden patio with a view of lemon trees and the song of birds. Less than a mile's walk from the bus/train station, the location is not only convenient, but truly magical. Across the street from a more traditional hotel, this great find is tucked away inside a lemon grove, just around the corner from the equally charming "Giardini di Cataldo", where you can try local limoncello and stroll the verdant paths. If I ever go back to Sorrento, the main reason will be to return to this hotel!
