With its sweeping views and classic Italian interiors, the Grand Hotel Ambasciatori offers up a taste of la dolce vita.
The Grand Hotel Ambasciatori 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 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.
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 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.

Superb hotel in a brilliant location
Our 2nd visit to this hotel and it didn't disappoint. Beautiful garden room with free Wi-Fi. All the staff are extremely polite and attentive. The private beach area is great along with bar serving a range of drinks and beautiful lunches. The terrace is a great place to enjoy pre dinner drinks with family and friends. I would definitely recommend the hotel.More
Great hotel that could do with a bit of upgrading
We stayed at the hotel on recomendation , the location is beautiful and if you don't mind walking a fair distance into town , then worthwhile staying at . We found the facilities , breakfast setting and food good as well as the restaurant at the pool very good .we chose to walk into town for dinner at night (hence the comment on the distance ) . The only negative for us was the room size and layout , quite small and the bathroom very pokey as well as a stand up hose shower in the bath ? Quite frankly the room could have done with some modern upgrades . Well worth a stay but do your home work on the rooms before you book .More
The best in Sorrento!
This hotel is amazing! It has a charm to it that is hard to explain. The location is perfect and the views are incredible. The private beach area was beautiful and the staff was very nice and helpful too. I highly recommend.More
We came here for dinner on the last night of our holiday in Sorrento. We were staying in a nearby villa. Aulthough the food was quite dear it was by far the best food I had throughout the holiday, tasty and very well presented !! Some other places we dined at were equally as expensive and terrible! We booked earlier that day and this was sorted by a very friendly man at reception. He helped us find a lovely table at the edge of the cliff with a wonderful view of vesuvius. The only negative thing I can say is that we did wait rather a long time for our main course and for desserts. For desserts there was a choice of souffle which a few of us declined after being told there would be a 20 minute wait for (due to its preparation). However we still waited 25-30 minutes for our desserts.. having declined the souffle because of the wait time. The alternate choice of 'fritters'..... doughnuts.. were okay but quite dry and pretty much cold. Overall we had a lovely evening- great atmosphere and perfect end to the trip.More
Decent hotel, not really 5* though.
First impressions were good, nice reception area and friendly staff on reception. Our room was clean and spacious woth a very good sea view. We were surprised at how good the evening meals were, and fish und the half board option to be excellent in both quality and choice. Waiters were very nice and attentive. Bar staff equally as good. The downsides were the breakfast, which was not good. There was a reasonable selection but it was just not replaced regularly enough, so plates on the buffet were nearly always empty and this dod not matter what tme we went, whether the restaurant was busy or not we were waiting for fruit or pastries to be replenished,which was a pain, especially when we were having to ask for this to be done and staff were walking around ignoring empty platters. Not very 5* im afraid. The other problem and it was a big problem, was the fact we witnessed several people who were not staying at the hotel using the facilities by the sea/pool, there was a large rowdy group of them,taking up sunbeds which paying customers couldn't therefore use. We witnessed them loudly talking to friends about their hotel facilities not being good so they came to the Ambasciatori. The problem is that there was nothing stopping them doing so, as staff by the sea were few and nobody was checking for room numbers/keys etc. The same was happening at breakfast, when the friends / family were invited to the buffet. The management were informed but the people were never approached, but there were lots of guests who noticed them, and were irritated by them. The hotel never asked for room numbers again, so this kind of thing was easy for these people to get away with. Stay was decent as i say, but management seemed very ineffective and unwilling to take action, paying customers were not impressed.More
