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.
My new husband and I were lucky enough to have been bought a 4 night stay here as a honeymoon present, after my parents had stayed here the previous year for their 30th wedding anniversary. We were delayed on our flight over, and this meant we arrived at the hotel much later than anticipated, however, the staff at reception were lovely when we arrived and we went to our room (500) to find a complimentary bottle of champers! We went straight to sleep in our lovely comfy bed.
Breakfast was good. I'm a bit of a tea-lover, and they did the best tea outside of Britain! A nice selection of food, but more fresh fruit might have been good. The view was absolutely spectacular from breakfast, and we were looking out across the bay to Naples, Mount Vesuvius and watching the boats sailing off towards Capri. Stunning.
Our room looked out across the hotel pool next door, but behind that was the sea! Gorgeous.
We went to the hotel's jetty, which has lovely towels, great sun beds and the sea was crystal clear and lovely to swim in.
We didn't eat at the hotel in the evening, because there were loads of amazing restaurants in the town, but also because it seemed very expensive. This is my only negative!More

A relaxing week
A great hotel, although a little pretentious. Staff were not as friendly as I would have liked. Room amazing, view amazing, chamber maid amazing, cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in, bathing platform and bathing area toilets, immaculate, wonderful setting. Breakfast was adequate. Could have been a better variety of fresh fruit. And paying for your tea bags for the room spoiled it a little bit.More

Setting - stunning. If you want the best of Sorrento you need to be on the cliff overlooking the bay of Naples
Room - we stayed in room 304 a junior suite with a full sea view. Immaculate room wonderfully kept by the chambermaid Angela. Best bed we have ever had in any hotel!! Room well equipped and excellent wi-fi
Bathing platform - simply the best sea bathing facility we have encountered. Crystal clear water in a sheltered environment.
Restaurant - we only stayed B&B. The open aspect with the views over the bay were an absolute delight. Food was excellent but lacked a little in the selection of fresh fruits.
Overall a first class hotel. With this comes an element of formality particularly in the evenings. This is not a criticism of the hotel but a warning to those of you who, like me, prefer a relaxed outlook throughout my holiday. If informality is your thing but you still want a first class hotel then book B&B and venture into the centre where there are many excellent establishments

We spent 10 nights at Ambasciatori and had a really good holiday. Nice cold air con in our bedroom. We had room 700, which was a side view of the sea - unexpected bonus. Really excellent housekeeping - thank you for looking after us so well Maria. But the real beauty of this hotel is the 'beach' or the jetty as we called it. Just the most perfect place to swim and stay cool - with beautiful clear sea and well kept sunbed area. Breakfast was also very good with made to order omelettes / crepes / eggs etc and everything else you can imagine (fresh melon juice was gorgeous - and prosecco!) Yes we would go back, if just for the jetty!More

Just returned from 11 nights at Ambasciatori with Thomson
Excellent transfer to the hotel from the airport despite being an hour late getting in to Naples. Driver was superb, good English and ensured we knew where we were and what was around us.
The room we booked was a Garden view, but was not very special. however, to be fair the cost of a full sea view being another Â£600 for 10 nights I think is too expensive.
The room was okay but nothing like we had in Croatia or Turkey and they need to revitalise more in order to modernise the rooms.
Food and bar service excellent and we ate in the hotel three times, despite the fact that the it is approx 15% more expensive than eating in the restaurants in the town.
Swimming pool was lovely despite the outlook of a large football ground floodlight and the noise of the main road at times reminding me we were on Silverstone circuit not over looking the med !!
I would be fantastic if you could look out over the bay instead but too many trees and foliage in view.
Lunch superb with a great deal on offer, very tasy with a fantastic view right across to Vesuvius.
Bar team and reception very attentive and ask reception to help book tables at restaurants in town as really pleased with their help.
Hotel is about 10 mins walk in to town and a very safe walk.
We went B&B so we could try the food in the town. All very good indeed.
- Il Buco - Fantastic - went twice approx Â£200 for two including wine .... superb
- Il Delphino - Very good - Approx Â£150 for two including wine
- Fauno Bar - Great choice and location food very reasonable approx Â£40 plus drink. Just wish the smoking was separated when eating is a bit off putting
Otherwise not a bad restaurant around especially if just want a pizza
Two trips with Thomson - Amalfi which is a great half day especially the authentic restaurant at lunch time. Vesuvius Half day also very good value for money.
Just note the wine at Vesuvius you cannot bring back in hand luggage !!!
Overall, good stay, lovely people and great food.More
