La Tonnarella
Ranked #57 of 100 Hotels in Sorrento
Reviewed 12 October 2017

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at this hotel which is close enough to the main center of Sorrento that you could walk. Our room was clean and bright and had a full terrace overlooking the Bay of Naples. We had a wonderful view of the coast of Sorrento, Mt Vesuvius and the water. Hotel offered a nice breakfast which included the standard choices but you could order eggs, bacon, omelets off the menu (included).The carpets in the main areas of the hotel are old and worn and in need of replacement. We were there in October so restaurant was closed for dinner but the staff recommended a few, made the reservations and arranged a shuttle. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Would highly recommend paying the extra for a full terrace/sea view room, the view is priceless.

We stayed in at La Tonnarella for 4 nights and used it as a base for our trips to the surrounding area. I had mixed feelings about the hotel so I'll give a short run down of the pros and cons.

Pros
- The setting is fantastic, great views of the whole of the bay of Naples.
- Breakfast was fairly decent with lovely views.
- I enjoyed the style of the hotel, charming and a taste of the local culture.
- There is a little private beach

Cons
- The hotel is arguably the worst value for money I've ever booked in terms of quality for the price paid, although that owes much to the fact that Sorrento seems to be a rather expensive place to stay full stop.
- Some of the rooms with the sea views seemed lovely unfortunately ours had a good sized terrace which faced on to the road and the door to the terrace provided the only access for light to enter the room beside a tiny bathroom window. Combined with the dark decor the room was very gloomy.
- The bathroom needs a real revamp, old and a little smelly with a large bath and a shower head.
- The beach area seems to be a once popular place that has been long since neglected.

Charming hotel filled with gorgeous views. Booked this based on a recommendation in Rick Steeves book on the Amalfi coast. He mentions that the staff is "indifferent" and this is so true. We visited off season so the restaurant was closed but a standard buffet breakfast was included. The hotel's private beach was lovely.

My wife and I just stayed here and this room/view took our breath away. We were literally on the edge of the Mediterranean. Views from all windows were of the ocean, Sorrento, Mt Suvious, Napoli and beyond. Can't say enough, and it was just 10 minute walk to city centre, quite in the evening. The restaurant at the hotel serves up a very good breakfast (included), however I was disappointed with a dinner selection. the Shrimp, asparagus on pasta. the asparagus was so tough I could not eat it, there were no shrimp that I could find. Otherwise this hotel is a great spot to call home base.

Room Tip: Room 4, worth every euro

We spent 4 nights at La Tonnarella as part of a 2 week vacation in Italy. We booked a Junior Suite well in advance and asked for room 24. All I can say is WOW what a room! The room is gorgeous, with tile throughout. The bed was huge and very comfortable. The bathroom was amazing, and there was an outdoor shower as well on the private terrace. The terrace was to die for, with unbelievable views of the bay, including Vesuvius in the distance. The breakfast was very good. The staff was very nice and helped us arrange transportation to Naples when we left. The private beach was nice, although it was late season so it was almost closed down. The only negative to this hotel is the distance to the town, which is part of the charm, but also makes it a bit of a trek to get to town. I saw other hotels with shuttle van service, and La Tonnarella could definitely benefit it's guests by providing this service. We would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask for Junior Suite room 24 for the large wraparound terrace
