With its sweeping views and classic Italian interiors, the Grand Hotel Ambasciatori offers up a taste of la dolce vita.
The Grand Hotel Ambascatori is set on the edge of a cliff that nosedives into the Mediterranean Sea, so you can look forward to sweeping views of the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius.
As well as a pool and a private bathing platform, this hotel is well-placed for exploring Sorrento – it’s just a 10-minute walk into the heart of town from here.

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, 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. And when you feel like an extra buzz, the built in hydro-massage pool will ease any lingering worries away.
Le Muse restaurant
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.

Our first trip to Sorrento and I don't know how we could have picked a nicer hotel. We splurged for rooms overlooking Naples Bay and it was well worth it as the view is spectacular. Beautifully appointed large rooms, wonderful breakfast buffet, friendly staff and beautiful grounds. There's an elevator that takes you down through the cliffside to the sunbathing & swimming pier. It's a bit of a walk to the main piazza but we liked being a bit away from the action and after the wonderful food and wine, we appreciated the exercise. Leave the gynormous room key with the front desk when you go out.More

Our favorite Hotel in Italy!
We loved our stay here and would highly recommend. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. The interior public areas are beautiful as is the restaurant and gardens. The view from our balcony was breathtaking and would highly recommend a sea view room. So relaxing to sit on the balcony with that view! Very nice welcome fruit basket in our room on arrival. Housekeeping was excellent! A little bit of walk into town but it was a pleasant walk and unless you have mobility issues no problem at all. It was nice being away from town in a quieter area. Cant wait to come back!More

The best time ever!
We chose the Ambasciatori for our wedding drinks and reception after our wedding at the Museo de Correale after meeting and speaking to the events manager who was awesome. The service was impeccable, the waiters attentive and the food brilliant. We organised everything ourselves through the manager and even with the language barrier he got everything absolutely spot on. They really made our day very special. We also stayed one night in one of the suites with a hot tub on the balcony and an amazing view of the coastline. We were able to use the full facilities for the whole day after check out while our bags were kept securely at reception. I would recommend the hotel for a wedding or just a holiday as they really do take pride in their hotel as do all the staff that work there. I really cannot give enough compliments about it :-)More

lovely relaxing stay
We recently returned from this hotel and were very pleased with our choice. The hotel interior is very luxurious and well appointed. It was cool and calm in the vestibule which was nice to relax in with a pre-dinner drink. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful with excellent English. Prior to travelling we asked for an upgrade to a full sea view room following the earlier reviews and Iâm glad we did. I note some recent reviews suggest they were upgraded (presumably FOC) but we didn't want to take the chance, although you might :) The view was one of the highlights of our trip - it was breath-taking. With a huge vista of a bustling bay full of fishing boats, ferries and expensive yachts by day and stunning views of the sunset at night it was no surprise we didn't turn the TV on once during our stay. It was lovely to relax and watch the world go by whilst the sun was setting before heading out to dinner. The balconies were not terribly private as it was just railings between us and next door, but neighbours were nice and friendly so no issue for us. The rest of the room was spotless and well appointed and the bed was comfortable - all you need really. Top tip though - if you ask for a room on the high floors donât be alarmed if you are told the room is on the first floor - the hotel had 4 levels below built into the cliff so the first floor is only 2 floors from the top :) Another top tip for beer drinkers - donât pay 6 euros for a peroni from the minibar, head up to the local supermarket approx. 10 mins walk away and grab a case of 12 peroni for the same price. It was shockingly cheap for Italian beer there, naturally i took advantageâ¦ The food in the hotel was good, with a varied breakfast selection that was fresh and well presented. The local bread was fantastic and there was loads available. Service was unhurried, which we were happy with as I hate people whipping plates off your table before the cutlery is settled. I can see how some people would consider it slow, but you are on holiday to relax so we were in no hurry, especially with the view for company. We only ate dinner once at the hotel which was nice, but the variety and quality of local restaurants meant we ate out most nights. The hotel was also one of our most expensive meals so itâs not cheap. In terms of leisure facilities we didn't really spend much time by the pool, although it was well kept. The families with kids tended to stay by the pool so for some peace we went to the beach area, down the lift through the cliff face-very cool. The beach area was lovely, with sun loungers that didn't permanently have towels draped on them i.e. plenty to go round. The chance to swim in the sea straight from the deck was great. The water is surprisingly warm and itâs easy to float because itâs salty, so great to cool off and relax in between catching the sun. Before leaving we were given a courtesy room to shower and change before leaving for our return flight, which was most welcome. In all we were very happy with our stay at the ambasciatori and would definitely return to the hotel and to the area in general.More

We recently stayed in this hotel and had a great experience. The staff were friendly but not intrusive. One staff in particular, Gennora provided us with an exceptional customer service. He made us and our little daughter feel the most special people in the world. One day after a tiring day trip, our 3 year old daughter fell asleep in her chair during dinner !!Gennora and other staff made sure she had a pleasant and comfortable rest, providing cushions, as we enjoyed our fantastic dinner with sea view!! The breakfast was reasonably good with good choices.Dinner was AMAZING!!!!!!!!! The three course meal was unbelievable. Do not miss the warm chocolate cake with orange sauce..Yum! We stayed in a junior suite(Room no.302) with Mt Vesavius view.. lovely view..It was great sea view , unforgettable daily view of sunset. Enjoyed our stay tremendously.We will surely be back soon.More
