Set amidst the trees and plants of the hotel garden, the pool is the place to spend a relaxing day in the warm Mediterranean sun. Stretch out on a lounger and read under the shade of a parasol, take a few leisurely lengths in the pool, or just sit back and absorb the beautiful view across the Bay of Naples, from the wide terraces.
Open for breakfast and dinner, this elegantly decorated, and beautifully furnished restaurant offers the chance to enjoy speciality local and International cuisine both indoors and outside on the Belvedere terrace, where you can enjoy gorgeous views across the Bay of Naples to Vesuvius. There's also a weekly gala buffet dinner between May and October.
Located at the base of the cliffs, and extending out over the sea on a wooden jetty, this is an ideal spot to just relax in the sun with a good book, or just to catch some rays. Waiter service from the beach bar means you need never leave your lounger. And to keep things easy, there's a lift back to the hotel.
- Breakfast room has an incredible view of Mt Vesuvius and a wide spread of food, including an omelette/pancake station.
- Rooms were beautifully furnished.
- Location not so good, its about 10 minutes away from the major tourist area where the good restaurants are. Its not that bad, but something to take note of.
- room service very expensive (I think it was +6.5 euros per guest for any room service). This was particularly annoying because they only have 1 restaurant, which is fine dining. Given its location away from the tourist area, if you are in the hotel, and feel tired and just want a light dinner, you don't have many options - either walk 10 min, or eat fine dining, or order expensive room service.
- our room was meant to have a sea view but in reality this was 90% obscured by a tree and buildings.More
what an amazing
We had a fabulous stay at Grand Hotel Ambasciatori ,
From the minute we checked in we were looked after very well by all the staff.
We were taken up to our room which was very grand and had a lovely sea view.
The hotel was immaculately clean and the interiors were beautifully decorated. The gardens were lovely.
We only had dinner once in the hotel as we preferred to go out during the evening but it was ok.
The breakfast was very good with lots of choice.
We would definitely return and the hotel was in such a great location just a 10min walk to the centreMore

An amazingly beautiful hotel....an oasis!
Location: Outstanding! Located on a cliff overlooking the sea you awake each morning to views of Mount Vesuvious, Capri, cruise ships or boats in the harbour. An elevator takes you down to the base of the cliff and you walk through a rock tunnel to a boardwalk/deck of lounge chairs and lovely Aqua water. A short 10 minute walk on a narrow, safe, cobblestone(take comfortable s shoes) sidewalk past lemon groves and a stunning vista takes you to the centre square of Sorrento or the circumvesia.
Rooms: ours was garden view, however our balcony also gave us a great sea view. The room was large enough...the bathrooms large but more importantly both were immaculate and very quiet. Loved the remote control blinds that afforded quiet and darkness.
Grounds: an unexpected treat! We had read there were nice grounds but we were not prepared to be wowed!! Meandering sidewalks leading to private sitting areas (very romantic) or larger open areas. Beautiful well thought out gardens, an adequate sized pool and the views....everywhere... Simply stunning!!! An amazing retreat for a sit or drink after the busy streets of Sorrento. Very nicely lit at night for a different perspective.
Lobby: a lovely entrance. You cannot miss that once inside you can see right through to the views beyond. Great planning. The lobby itself is similar to the rest of the hotel. Although large you do not feel that is the case as there are many small private areas to sit as well as open areas. A computer area, outside seating, a small bar area. The bar area has a nightly pianist and offers a different specialty drink each night. A few nibbles are offered and drinks charged to your room. Very good bar service with attentive, friendly yet not pushy staff. All in all..the lobby area very relaxing. The staff at the front desk very friendly and accommodating.
Food: breakfast is very good with a lot of selection. You may have freshly made eggs/pancakes daily made at the egg station. Breakfast does not vary daily but there is a selection that would appeal to all. Very good wait staff. On a note: upon reserving the hotel we chose to purchase 3 half board meals for 204 euros (for two) as we would be late arriving and we thought we might enjoy eating in a few times in a week's stay. Perhaps our error but we assumed there would be either a half board menu or it would cover the nightly meal. On specialty nights you cannot order off the menu ( where no prices are indicated) nor will your nightly allotment cover the meal. Extra will be charged to your room. The meal was fine..not great...however we personally found the dinner meals very formal and not relaxing. After one night meal we changed to lunch meals and thoroughly enjoyed outside eating...in the garden. ( probably lost on that one).
Would we return......most certainly!!!!!!! More

Anniversary get away
Fantastic hotel with amazing views. Rooms lovely, not as big as they appear on website but not a problem as rooms were beautifully decorated with a lovely sea view balcony. Champagne in our room on arrival (I had asked for a room with a lovely view as it was our anniversary). Lovely touch. Restaurant elegant with lovely views and the food really good. Sardinian eve was fun with duo singing and on mandolin! Would definitely recommend it as only 10 min walk into Sorrento centre. More
Absolutely gorgeous - inside and out.....
We stayed at the Grand Hotel Ambasciatori for four nights while exploring the Amalfi Coast. From the outside, it looked quite ordinary. However, upon entering, the public areas are extremely spacious with various seating areas. The grounds were spectacular with multiple areas to sit and enjoy your drink and the sea views. While it was a bit chilly for the pool and beach access, they were quite lovely. The hotel is perched on a cliff and the views are just beautiful. Mt. Vesuvius is right there! The dining room is just beautiful with touches of sterling silver, chandeliers, and massive windows so you can enjoy the view. We only are breakfast there and it was the best out of the five hotels we stayed at in Italy. You could have the chef make you a custom omelet or crepe or enjoy the many, many other options available including a wide variety of gluten free items. They also had the best Cafe Americano! At last, a great cup of "American" coffee while in Italy :) Our room was quite lovely and very clean. The staff was always great to us and very knowledgeable about the area and offered us good advice when we asked. We had a car while in Sorrento and they had parking for us in a safe place. We would definitely return and would certainly recommend the Grand Hotel Ambasciatori to anyone.More
