Good location

Posted Jun 29, 2017
Pros: Location, size of pool, cleanliness.
Cons: A little more comfort in the rooms, more supervision of children at swimming pool.
Location: Great restaurants and beaches nearby. Access to Sorrento and main tourist sites
Overall a pleasant experience, shame about all the school visitors as meal times were a bit noisy and some of the children of school visitors and other guests were very inconsiderate in and around the pool. There was no supervisor at certain times. Staff responded to any issues with rooms promptly.

No comparison

Posted Aug 1, 2016
Pros: The staff and the pool
Cons: Great concept, needs a full remodeling to 21 century standards. The cost it will be high buy the price could go up and will be worth it.
Location: Isolated location, no close by attractions.
There is no comparison between two 4 star properties, Grand Hotel Palatino - Rome, and Costa Alta. The Staff was very friendly at Costa Alta but the rooms should be rated at 0 stars. Old bunk beds army style, old dirty couch, 1970 style/look kitchenette, very small bedroom and even smaller tv, with an outdated bathroom with small septic tank flies allover. Great piece of real estate very poorly equipped. The pool looked amazing, just couldn't use it after hours.

Not what we expected, I thought there would be sea views. Bungalows were very basic.

Good value, Great pool

Posted Jun 19, 2015
Pros: I liked the pool and the feeling of space. Liked being able to sort own drinks, breakfast and lunch and that saved us a bit of money. Felt chilled.
Cons: It would have been nice to have a bit more info about the surrounding area in the bungalow. A local map and info on local shops and restaurants.
Location: Piano is lower key than Sorrento. Beach is tiny but quayside bars have access to sea. You can get boats/trips to Capri avoiding Sorrento crush.
I knew beaches were in short supply in Sorrento and I like a swim so a good pool was important in my booking. Pool is a really good size with lots of seating around. There were some school parties on site while we were there but had a good swim every day and sometimes even had it to ourselves. Had a one bedroom bungalow plus a sitting room with 2 gas rings and a fridge, and also a table outside to eat breakfast and have a drink in the evening. There is a beach/quayside 5 minutes walk away from the site. Sorrento is 5-10 minutes away by bus (there is a shuttle bus 3-4 times a day from the site) or a 15-20 minute walk to the station and Sorrento is 2 stops (1.20 euros and 5 mins) away. The same station gives you access to Pompeii (about 3.50 euros) and Naples. There are quite a few nice restaurants in and around Piano di Sorrento as well as in Sorrento but Piano itself is definitely a bit more down market. Didn't eat at the site restaurant but did use the very reasonable bar. Staff were friendly and helpful. School parties were a little loud in the early evening but it was always quiet after 11. There is a nice seating area overlooking the coast. It's a good value option for staying in the area.

stay away!

Posted May 22, 2015 on Hotels
The hotel was published as a 4 star hotel. It is hardly a 2 star hotel. the room is tiny, the furniture is very old, there are no mosquito's nets on the windows (and there are lots of mosquitos...) the bathroom is tiny, with insects coming out of the holes... the floor was not clean and the blankets were very old. The rooms are like little huts in the garden (all rooms seem similar) and the garden is nice.

Costa Alta

Posted May 18, 2015 on Hotels
We had a lovely stay in April at Costa Alta - it is away from the main tourist area in Sorrento, quiet and picturesque, but at the same time only a short walk from shops and the station, and quite near the marina and the beaches in the next town. The staff was very friendly; the restaurant was convenient; and the cabins were spacious and clean.

One night stay hotel

We were on our way to Amalfi coast.So, we needed a one night stay place. It was very suitable for that. Mountains are really nice and the chalet was spacious.

basic cabin accommodation just outside Sorrento.

Posted May 7, 2015 on Hotels
Very basic cabin accommodation. Was clean. Had a cook top but no kettle or toaster and nothing to wash dishes with. Very tiny room but comfortable beds. Has a large swimming pool which was very clean. Fairly good breakfast. Easy 10 minute walk to piano train station which is 2 stops from sorrento. Very nice staff. For the price it is good basic accommodation just outside Sorrento.
