We stayed here for 4 nights. We arrived at around 1 pm on a Sunday. We found the hotel charming and staff were very pleasant, polite, knowledgeable with fluent English. We got a 2nd floor seaview room with balcony and 180 degree view of the sea. The room was spacious, bright, we have 3 full closets, well thought out bathroom layout, and it looked identical as the website. We were delighted. On the second day after breakfast, at a little after 8am, we heard on and off hammering noises from above, as we needed to catch the 9 O'clock shuttle to go out, I didn't bother to check the reason why. Unfortunately on our 3rd day, it rained quite heavily and we decided to stay in till noon and just do some shopping in town at Sorrento. As we headed back from the gym to our room around 10 am, there was continuous banging and drilling above our head. We then realized that they was renovation going on at the upper floors, it was so unbarable to stay in the room. Well, as predicted, the only solution was to move us down to -2 fl and they promised a seaview and a staff to help move our things. It was very annoying. After viewing the signicantly smaller, darker room with a balcony surrounded by high walls on both sides, we had no choice but to move as this was the only 'quieter room' available. As for the porter that helped us move, he was eager to help but he placed both our luggage upside down and around, then didn't even know how to pull the hangers off the rack form the closet, I had to do it myself. Worse was that we found out we also moved from having 3 closets to just half a closet! And for the rest of our 2 days, it just wasn't a pleasant stay in our room. The question I have for the management is why would you put guests staying for four night in a room that you know will be hugely affected by renovation noises! And there was never anything anywhere mentioned that renovation is going on in the hotel. Was it because we booked through booking.com and not through an agent or direct from the hotel's website? This hotel also takes in a lot of tour groups particularly from the U.S. so breakfast time can get a bit hectic and noisy. And running short of food on the buffet table. Apart from all the unpleasant circumstances of our stay, the staff service is great, breakfast buffet offerings are adequate, they do have a shuttle to take to and back from town although it only runs once every hour. Will I recommend this to my friends, probably not although I liked it a lot initially.
This place is just incredible - amazing views, stunning gardens, gorgeous food and most of all the friendliest staff ever. So much nicer than many of the 'famous' hotels in the centre of Sorrento - i literally don't think there is a better spot on the whole of the coast. Stylish, charming, totally relaxing with just the right amount of indulgence - one of the best hotels I have ever had the pleasure of staying at
Spent a week B&B with our 7 year old at this wonderful truely 5* hotel towards the end of October 2017. Fabulous sea view room, wonderfully attentive staff in the restaurant for breakfast, at reception and the mini bus driver. I was disappointed when the sea access closed after our second day - turns out we arrived just as the "winter" season started but it didn't spoil our stay as we could still use the (very cold!) swimming pool. Sorrento is a magical truely Italian destination with no commercialism anywhere which helps it retain its charm. I'd recommend a day trip to Capri - another magical Italian location! We will definitely be back! (and I never say that about anywhere!)
Short break at this wonderful hotel. Hotel is an absolute gem, beautifully styled, fabulously appointed rooms, the photographs on their website really don't do it justice. Staff were outstanding. Nothing too much trouble, attentive and happy to share local knowledge to ensure you make the best of your stay. View from the room balcony, restaurant and terrace is very special. Would recommend 100%!
We stayed 3 nights just on the cusp of low season. Beautiful hotel in the 1960’s style that revels in its streamlined modernity. The staff were brilliant, the room (314) had the original Gio Ponti furniture (like GPlan but more blue) and the most incredible views of the Bay of Naples, Vesuvius and the Amalfi coast. The gardens are a delight; cool, relaxing, immaculate. Breakfast is great and overseen by one of the very few men who can look stylish in a white tuxedo. I wouldn’t choose the restaurant for an evening meal as Sorrento itself has a plethora of good restaurants to fit all budgets / families. The lost star is because we booked a car for the day to drive us around the Amalfi coast and we had to share Giovanni’s many business calls on speakerphone thereby killing our own conversation. All a bit hairy-scary when the roads are all cliff edge and seemingly less than a car’s width wide. At €270 for the day I sort of expected it to be ‘ours’, not a mobile office that we had to share. Particularly as Giovanni had nigh on 4 hours without us to make calls! We will be back but will use public transport that is straight forward and gvfm.
A group of nine of us spent theee nights here in late October. The views were stunning from our rooms. We were treated exceptionally well by the staff. We were on floor -1 and our only complaint was the bathroom. There was no fan in the bathroom and because the walls and floor were all tile, when we showered the entire room was wet. It was very dangerous. Other than that, the grounds were beautiful, the dining room had spectacular views also. We enjoyed the breakfast each morning looking out at the Mediterranean. The front desk gals were very attentive, as was the entire staff. We would stay here again!
My wife and I has spent six nights at the hotel beinning of October. As we entered though the large garden, we knew that this is the right place for us to stay. The great surprise was the fantastic sea view from our room balcony, above the top of the cliff. Going down in an elevator and walking through a tunnel, we saw the beautiful . waterfront deck. However, it wasnt only the view, rather the great staff of the hotel. From the moment we entered until our departure, we got an excellent service by the entire staff, among them MIriam and Michela of the front office. Our daily trips were followed by Concierge Giovany who advised us where to go, which road is the best, organizing for us daily trips to Napoli, Ischia and Capri, even checking on us whether we found our guide, or, whether we came back safe. We have never got such a service and attention in any other hotel we stayed before .
Booked this sight unseen on Expedia and it exceeded our expectations. We generally stay at 4 star hotels and this did not disappoint. We booked a junior ocean view suite at $260 a night with breakfast included. It is about 1 km from central Sorrento but an easy, pleasant walk or you can take the free shuttle that runs every 30 minutes. Great staff, incredible views and very clean. Highly recommend. The photos are from our room and the dining room on the terraza.
The hotel is located in large gardens a 15 minute walk from the town. The decor is 1960s and might not appeal to everyone but we enjoyed the spacious room and fantastic views. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfasts very good. The hotel is on the top of a massive cliff so to get to the sea you descend a lift and sunbathe on a jetty which protects a safe swimming area. Most of the rooms face north which I imagine in the heat of summer would be an advantage - sun does reach the terrace. I was very impressed by the cleanliness of the whole hotel.
The original architecture and the rejuvenated Gio Ponti interior design will put some off and attract others. I found it very special and not tiring at all for a five day stay. Service was solid and attentive. I left most of my minestrone at dinner one night and when the waiter asked why and I explained I thought it lacked taste, they brought a surprise starter to replace it, extra dessert and didn't charge any of it. Very nice. The concierge is absolutely magnificent. Rooms are delightful, also in white and blue. We went for two connecting rooms with a garden view and we got them on the side of the building, offering fantastic views over the garden but also the sea, definitely recommendable and lower in price than the full sea view ones. But the absolute best in the hotel is the private "beach" from the jetty. Swimming in that emerald water with the cliff hanging above you was an absolute highlight. Lunch at the beach restaurant, a deck over the sea, was also great. Best pizza we had in the area (and that is a lot to say) and lovely salads. The only weak points I'd say are two: the buffet breakfast was a mere OK (although you forgot instantly just by admiring the view from the terrace, where it is served); and the swimming pool in the garden (amazing trampolin for the kids!) is shared by a lower category hotel owned by the same company, so the luxury atmosphere you get at the beach and the main building gets somewhat diluted (little things like the waiters telling you off for not collecting your towels upon your exit show the difference - you wouldn't dream of anything like that happening at the beach). Ah, one last thing: we asked at reception if we could check-out at 12.30h the day we left and they said they'd need to charge €80! With 12h noon the absolutely standard check-out time everywhere, I thought this was cheap in a hotel that aims to be, and is otherwise, a luxury establishment. I would certainly recommend they change their policy in this regard. Other than that, a magnificent choice if you want to explore Sorrento and its peninsula. A real pleasure (until check out time anyway!)
