Villa Giovanna is a 3 star rating - it is situated up in the hills outside of Sorrento it is owned by the Hotel Johanna Park right next door, the Villa Giovanna is not sign posted so make sure you quote the Johanna Park in all flight transfers and excursions, for hotel pick up. - Taxi cab costs about 25 Euros to take you up the hill from town centre - there is a shuttle bus at different times during the day, last bus up at 10.15pm, luckily we always managed to squeeze everyone in. Meeting point is outside the Conrad Supermarket at the edge of town, near the Hotel Ascot. There is a path/road outside on opposite side of road near Hotel President the walk down is great and offers great views of the bay didn't walk up wasn't that brave.
It's such a shame as rooms are slightly run down, our shower curtain was too short so created a lot of water on the floor due to position of shower head, so in the end I gave up and used it in my hand so as not wet the floor, the hair dryer had the back missing, rooms were very basic. Rooms were not cleaned at all while we were there, but bins were emptied, but there are only 5 staff so you can see why.Plunge pool only.
The staff so friendly and willing to help, the girl who does the breakfast is a bubbly bundle of joy. So willing to make coffee etc. The breakfast was fine, home made cakes and croissants. Scrambled eggs, toast, yoghurt, fruit and cereal.
I would recommend this to those on a budget travelling through, not for a family fortnight.
