Having decided to go back again almost as soon as we got home last year, because it had been so relaxing, we were not disappointed this year. We were greeted like long lost friends by Rita, the management and their staff.
This is a 3-Star hotel and the rooms were good at that standard. I preferred our room on the 2nd floor last year because it had a better view of the bay, but a room on the first floor is a relief after you have walked back from Sorrento in the heat.
The breakfasts were very nice with a good cold selection of food from cereals to cooked meats.
The pool, set in the lovely citrus orchard, is very relaxing and good snacks are available at lunchtime until 3pm.
The hotel is a 20 minute walk from Sorrento centre but we never found that a problem, though it may be for older guests. The pavement is very narrow near the hotel but you can cross the road near the chapel whilst you can still see both ways !
This year we made more use of the station at Sant'Agnello for trips to Roman sites towards Naples - Pompeii, Herculaneum & Stabiae. We also found one or two reasonable restaurants in Sant'Agnello too.
Without wanting to sound as though we are in a rut, we would certainly go back to the Girasole for a lovely relaxing holiday.
