What a lovely place! The hotel is very well positioned just on the outskirts of the town making it one of the hotels that allows you to stroll into town without catching a shuttle bus. Plus, all the rooms have spectacular views over the marinas of Sorrento, the town itself and looking out towards Vesuvius. You get to enjoy this view at breakfast and dinner too, as the dining room is on the 7th floor and so makes the most of the cliff-top position. The evening meal was really good - being served (rather than buffet) from a daily menu. We were on half board and had some of the best food we have had in a four-star hotel restaurant. The public areas are elegantly appointed and the rooms are classically decorated. The other stand-out point of this hotel is the staff, who are an excellent mix of the consummate professional whilst still being personable and friendly. This applied to the front desk and the dining room, and indeed the maintenance and housekeeping staff we came into contact with. We didn't try the pool because it was still too cool in March, but we did have a look at the spa area. It looked nice, but be aware that the treatments all have to be pre-booked as the beauticians and masseurs are brought in for appointments from outside of the hotel, and the hot tub and all the facilities are on a paying basis. We found the bar area a little uncomfortable with dining-type chairs, rather than armchairs and sofas. Again, this probably comes into its own in high season when there is music and more atmosphere - and again, the views are spectacular. The free Wi-Fi and the free safe were a nice bonus. We will stay here again when we inevitably return to Sorrento.
