This hotel comes with a laid-back pool, low-key entertainment and authentic Italian cooking.
This hotel is in a tucked-away suburb and just 5 minutes by bus from Sorrento itself, with Marinella Beach even closer still. And it’s a few minutes’ walk from the train station for trips to places like Pompeii and Naples.
There’s a good-sized pool with a children’s splash area. Food-wise, expect a real taste of Italy, particularly at the weekly Neapolitan evening and gala dinner. Evenings are all about relaxed cocktails and low-key music.
In the UK, this holiday is only available from the Thomson group.

My Mum and I had a two week girls only holiday here and we were not disappointed. Firstly; the hotel has some amazing property and is situated a perfect distance from Sorrento to be pleasantly quiet, but close enough (2 minute train ride) to be an excellent base. It is also an excellent base for trips to Pompeii, Erculano, Naples etc as it is all on the same line. The hotel is surrounded by some beautiful grounds including an orchard of lemon and orange trees; where there are tables, chairs and even a sofa to go out and sit and enjoy the sun. It also has a very pleasant pool and sun lounging area with access to toilet facilities in the basement level of the hotel, which was great for not having to traipse through the hotel lobby. The hotel lobby is beautiful and includes reception and extensive sitting areas which include the bar. When we knew we would arrive quite late at night we inquired with the hotel about a meal since we knew we would be out of the house from little after 11am that morning. We were advised that although the kitchen would be closed at that time, we would be provided with a cold dinner. We found this extremely satisfactory. On arrival at the hotel, one of the porters came and got our luggage from the coach and escorted us inside where we were met by friendly, smiling staff who were only too willing to cater to our needs. We were directed to the dining room for dinner while our cases were whisked away to our rooms during this. My Mum is a vegetarian and when she refused the cold dinner offered because there was meat on the plate this was no issue and the waiter returned with a vegetarian plate. He was closely followed by Salvatore the Maitre D who told my Mum that he would sit with her the next morning and they would plan her menu, and he did so every day for two weeks. It's the first holiday in Italy where my Mum actually got to eat something other than salad leaves and tomatoes for a fortnight. Abbiamo mangiato molto bene! The hotel was clean and uncluttered. The room was spacious and our terrace was huge. We had a fantastic view of Vesuvius and the fireworks down the town which were to celebrate a saints festival. Our terrace also got the sun from about 3pm onwards which meant if peoples kids got a bit noisy for us, we just headed upstairs. The room was very comfortable and the beds too. We had a lovely maid who was always so cheerful. We had absolutely no issues with our bed linen or our towels. There is a supermarket only a couple of minutes walk from the hotel. Get water from the supermarket for in your room, You'll need to keep hydrated. The water is only 22 cents in the super market for 2 litres. It is 3 euros for a 75cl water in the hotel, we mostly got a bottle for during dinner. We tried a few wines which were very tart and between 15-19 euros. We wished we had just ordered cocktails with dinner. Luigi is the barman and makes a mean Sorrento sunrise. The hotel has huge roof terrace which is fabulous for some panoramic photos. Seating isn't available on the roof terrace as they'd need to staff it but the pool area is great. There are very few places poolside that don't get the sun, but watch out for falling fruit. Breakfast is a buffet affair with hot choices, cold meats and pastries, cakes, fresh fruit, yoghurts. The home made jams and marmalades are to die for. If I could have smuggled a jar of lemon marmalade home; I would have. The dinner menu had a wide variety and although I chose fish most nights, the meat options were extensive. They also do gala nights and bbq nights. This is not for the faint hearted. These are four course evenings. These night can be a bit hectic too as not everyone turns up when they're meant to and it holds things up. Unfortunately that was our fault the first of these nights as we didn't realise that start a 7pm, meant start at 7pm. We just thought you could go down from then onwards. The staff are just fantastic and really helpful. I know the staff are payed to be helpful etc but you really are made to feel like family and that makes you feel a bit more special. After staying at 6 hotels in Sorrento actual, this is our preferred hotel in terms of comfort, outside space, friendly staff, food and location base. We will definitely not hesitate to book here for any future trips to Italy.More
The noisiest hotel I've ever stayed in
Now I'm not going to make out the hotel is bad, far from it in fact with one of the best pools for depth I've ever seen but it has issues. From 6am everyday the cleaning team delight in making a total racket (our room being opposite the cleaning store didn't help) The general selection at both breakfast and dinner is rather lacking, many nights it being a set menu, with a very none Italian theme to it.Talking of which the serving windows are too short and should you arrive towards the end of a sitting the options are drastically reduced. It's not an expensive hotel admittedly but the drinks prices are insane! €8 for a single Bacardi and coke for example. No coffee making facilities in rooms and no chance of pay TV either was an odd one, wifi is also very intermittent. On the plus side it's location is great for the train station and the staff are very nice. Loved the area, slightly baffled at how it has four stars though ?.More
Fabulous hotel in great location
My friend and I have just returned from a weeks stay at the lovely Alpha Hotel. From the moment we arrived we knew we had chosen well. The staff were all so pleasant and helpful, the food was very good, beautiful pool and very nice room overlooking the lemon trees. We would have no hesitation in recommending the Alpha hotel and would certainly book again if staying in the area.More
Had a really pleasant stay at this hotel, from the moment we arrived until we departed the staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful. Excellent food with plenty of choice, in the evenings the theme nights were very good even though extra work for their staff. All in all I really recommend this hotel for their friendly family atmosphere and efforts to ensure you have a good holiday.More
The staff went out of there way to ensure everyone had a fantastic holiday. The food and service was great, and the hotel is in a great location and is very handy for the short train ride into Sorento.More
