Where do I begin??!! From the moment we arrived at this beautiful hotel we were in love. The concierge service and helpfulness was outstanding. Our room had a view one way across the bay of Naples to Mount Vesuvius which was spectacular, and the other way to the Marina Grande and to where the most spectacular sunsets were viewed from...

This is a rather late review - We had a weeks stay at this lovely hotel in July - booked through a Travel Agent -'Thompsons A La Carte' - having checked the hotel on Trip Advisor. There were three of us and we all loved this hotel. Husband and I had a room with balcony overlooking the Bay of Naples...

We spent four days at this hotel and it was just wonderful. The hotel is extremely clean. The room we had was huge. We had a sea view which made it so nice as we were able to sit out on the balcony and it was a fantastic view. The staff is amazing. Gianni was extremely helpful for our visit....

For us, this hotel is excellent in almost every respect. The public areas are beautiful, the bedrooms are elegant, well appointed and spotlessly clean, the staff (all of them) are helpful, professional and very pleasant, the food is very good indeed in both variety and quality, the sea level swimming deck is great and the hotel is in a good...

We fell in love with this hotel, so much so we are going again (which is unusual for us). Beautiful, grand, typically Italian hotel. Outstanding food in the restaurant every night with outstanding service. All staff were so friendly. Plus near to sorrento town centre. Gorgeous!

Amazing views. Hotel clean and magnificently decorated. Reception staff accommodating and helpful. My only very slight criticism would be the breakfast dining staff seemed moody and unapproachable. The lady waiter could learn a lesson in "Not" banging the plates and cutlery whilst guests are trying to relax, very off putting and unnecessary.

Just come back from a 5 night half board stay in the hotel and would highly recommend. Staff at every level were friendly and very helpful.

I rarely find an hotel where there is nothing to criticise, but this is certainly one! The location is terrific - a ten minutes stroll from the town centre on the cliff top with spectacular views over the Bay of Naples. The staff from the moment we arrived to the moment we left were absolutely brilliant. Attentive, friendly (without overstepping...
