I recently stayed in Hotel Caravel with my husband and another couple. We found all the staff to be very friendly, helpful and polite - nothing was too much trouble and they staff made you feel very special and welcome. Our room overlooked the outside sitting area and was clean and well maintained. We asked if a kettle and tea and coffee could be provided in our room and this was done at a small daily charge. The food in the hotel was very good with plenty of choice for both breakfast and evening meal. The staff in the restaurant greeted you when you entered and made sure that you were served quickly and efficiently. The pool area was clean and well maintained and when we arrived one afternoon the staff found extra sunbeds for us - towels were also available for the pool at a small deposit. The rooftop sun bathing area was quiet and had views across the Bay of Naples. Although the hotel was about 25 minutes walk from the centre of Sorrento the courtesy mini bus made getting to and from the centre very easy. I would stay in the hotel again and would recommend it to both couples, groups of friends and families.
Recently returned from a half board family package holiday at the Caravel. Nothing negative to say about it at all. For us, it was excellently placed on a quiet side street, but within easy walking distance of all the attractions, though there was a regular free minibus service if required. Hotel was relatively basic, but modern, clean & tidy. Bedrooms smallish, but big enough for our requirements. Cannot praise the staff enough, from the housekeepers, to the reception staff, to the bar & restaurant staff. Angelo & his team were brilliant-friendly, helpful & attentive without being intrusive. Toni & his funny turns of phrase deserves a special mention. The kids thought he was brilliant! The food was great-plenty of it,lots of choice & something for everyone. Breakfast is especially good. Drinks were reasonably priced. Always room in the pool & a spare sun bed. One of the best hotels we have holidayed in. Stay here!!
Just returned from our first visit to the Italian Riviera and a 7 night stay at The Hotel Caravel....WOW! What a fantastic hotel from the amazing breakfasts and evening meals to the super friendly staff. The hotel is within walking distance of Sorrento town which takes about 10 - 12 mins. However, the hotel provides a regular shuttle service throughout the day and into the early evening too. Our double room was adequately spacious and cleaned to a high standard each day. The half board accommodation is definitely good value for money with a buffet style breakfast and a 3 course evening meal. The menu has an extensive choice of starters, mains and desserts with access to a pre starter buffet too! Staff in the restaurant are both charming and entertaining as well as excellent in providing a high standard of service.
Spent a week at the hotel caravel in August and the staff were absolutely lovely. Food was delicious, staff were amazing including Grazia and Michele on reception and special shout out to Toni and Rafael in the restaurant. Angelo is an excellent restaurant manager. Would recommend.
Just returned from a wonderful week at this hotel & I literally cannot find one bad thing to say about it ! All the staff are so friendly & welcoming & go out of their way to make your holiday perfect. Special mention to Angelo, the head waiter, who is so welcoming & charming & to the ladies on reception who from the moment we arrived ( v.tired after a 2am start ! ) made us so welcome. The food is excellent, buffet breakfast with lots of choice & dinner part buffet/ part waiter service is fantastic, Especially the puddings ! The location is great with stunning views over Mount Vesuvius & just a short 20 minute walk into Sorrento or 5 minutes on the courtesy bus - which runs all day until 11pm at night. The hotel is very clean & the rooftop sun bathing area the cherry on the cake away from the busier pool area - ask for a room on the 4th floor & you have easy access to the rooftop area. All in all a wonderful relaxing holiday at a superb hotel. Ignore any niggles on here as like I say, there is nothing at all negative !
this hotel is one of the best i have stayed in nothing to much trouble the rooms were lovely the only downside was the beds which were rock hard .all the staff were very helpful the restaurant staff were so nice and friendly and the food was great well done to them .the pool was a lovely size and the area kept very clean and the staff on the bar were kept very busy day and night .the shuttle bus was a godsend as it was so hot .the reception staff were so good and very helpful
The hotel was fantastic. The food was exceptional and such a suburb variety. The staff were incredibly helpful and accommodating. Definitely recommend this for a couples visit. The shuttle bus to Sorrento is frequent and prompt.
What a fantastic hotel...everything was perfect! The staff could not be more helpful, the room was excellent and the food delicious. Hope to return one day!! The pool was very inviting and we spent some lovely evenings in the candlelit garden.
This is the friendliest hotel I have ever stayed in and from the moment you arrive in reception they make you feel welcome. The reception staff were fast checking us in and gave us plenty of information. Dining at the Caravel is a real treat as you are greeted every morning and evening by Angelo who kisses the ladies hand and shakes hands with the men. You are then served by great waiters who always had a laugh and joke with us whilst doing a great job serving. The food was excellent all week with a good variety every evening and if there was nothing you liked they would find something else for you (we had a fussy grandson with us but they managed to find something for him) and the breakfast buffet was huge with something for everyone. The hotel has a free shuttle bus into Sorrento centre but it is only a 20 minute walk if you want to work off your dinner. The pool and garden area is very nice. I would recommend this hotel and would definitely return.
We have recently returned from a weeks stay at this lovely hotel. We had a fantastic room with balcony and views over the Bay of Naples to Vesuvius. The hotel was clean and well furnished throughout. The pool was just the right size with more than enough recliners. All the staff at this hotel could not have been more helpful, the majority spoke excellent English.The bar staff were friendly but respectful. The reception staff efficent and courteous. The restaurant was excellent with well trained staff under the watchful eye of the charming Angelo. We would definitely stay again.
