“Fantastic Holiday”
Reviewed 8 November 2011

We had a great time at the Girasole Hotel. All the staff were friendly and always ready to offer help. The rooms were always clean and tidy. The food quality was fantastic. Our boys especially loved the lunch menu of Lasagna and we loved David`s special. We would recommend this hotel to all our friends and hope to go back some time soon.

This hotel has some of the nicest staff you could wish for. It is not often the hotel manager comes and waves you off personally, but here they did! The view from our room was amazing, a full view of Mount Vesuvius and some pretty gardens. The room was basic but had all you needed. The only downside we found is that it is very noisy in the mornings. We could even hear alarms going off in other peoples rooms, which resulted in no lay in's past about 7.30am.The location was good, with the circumvesuviana just a short walk away (St Agnello station, 15 mins walk) and a short (30 min) walk down to Sorrento. The walk is not hazardous (although there is not much of a pavement) but I am not sure I would want to attempt it with small children. The staff are very helpful suggesting good restaurants and trying to accomodate everyones wishes. All in all a really nice, reasonably priced and friendly hotel, just not great if you want a lay in!

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the garden for a wonderful view

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.

Warm and welcoming hosts that will do anything to make your stay comfortable. The hotel is a little further than most from the town centre but as you know you eat and drink a lot more, so the walk does one good. Its safe and an easy walk too. The best is that a few restaurants pick you up and drop you back after a meal with them. Beds comfy, views to Vesusvius, nice terrace and pool area. Train station a 10 min walk.

Room Tip: Ask to see Vesusvius

we stayed here last month for two weeks and really enjoyed it. Yes it is a 20 minute walk into
Sorrento but that wasn't a problem and there are many places on the way for both food and drink as an alternative to town. San Agnello was a 10 minute walk in the other direction although it is much more limited. The hotel has a lovely pool and was a welcome alternative on days when we took a break from sightseeing. Our room was on the road side and we didn't have a problem with that. In fact we found it quite good to hear / see the traffic outside the hotel ( it is that sort of place, which you will understand if you go there) when we were getting ready to go out, which was the only time we spent in the room other than sleeping, when the traffic didn't bother us at all.
Breakfast in the hotel was fine, sitting outside, and getting a sunbed or deckchair by the pool was never a problem (3 euros each for a bed, deckchairs free)
2 euros 50 for a 330ml bottle of Peroni by the pool was reasonable too.
Rooms were good although the shower area was very small, but overall it was good value and we wouldn't hesitate to return or recommend to others.
Sorrento itself and all the other places to see in the area including Naples were great and we had a fantastic holiday using the Girasole as a base, and taking the train (from San Agnello 10 minutes away) or the bus or walking to the Marina to get ourselves around.

Room Tip: many people request rooms facing Vesuvius but for £250 for the fornight it wasn't worth it and w...
