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.

We travelled to Sorrento on this occasion to get married. Staying with us were another 7 members of my family so choice of hotel was massively important as we had to have so many different needs met. The hotel is very traditional and from the outside does not look at all spectacular, however once you walk through it is beautiful. The rooms are again very traditional and as this is an old hotel the rooms are all quite different in terms of size and shape (I saw 5 of them and none of them were uniform). For me this added to the experience and I really liked this. The pool area is quite small, but we managed to get all the sun loungers we needed on the occasions we sat round the pool. Most of us ate in the pool bar every day as their lunch menu was brilliant and very good value. The beach decking was also lovely and very peaceful. It's also an experience going down in the lift and coming out through the cliff on to the jetty. The sea water where you swim in also filtered so it's very clean and a lovely experience. The beach also has a bar where you can order drinks and food. The breakfast each morning was lovely with plenty of choice, they was an omelet station and the chef was such a lovely person, he really liked my son and would talk to him and make a fuss. It was also such a relaxing experience as you were not rushed to finish. The staff in General were very good, even the housekeepers were sweet and you could see all of the staff worked very hard and nothing was too much trouble. The cleaning lady even came and found my husband as we were checking out as she had found one of my sons toys in the room. The hotel was also very accommodating as we had a number of our friends and other family come and visit us at the hotel. Also on the day of our wedding it was not a problem for my bridal party to come to the hotel to get ready. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk into the centre of Sorrento but there are a couple of different routes you could take with shops and bars along the way. Some of the path ways are quite narrow and some of the way is up hill but we managed fine with a buggy. My 82 year old nan that can't walk far did get taxi's and although we hired a wheel chair for her it was a bit much to push her into the town, especially in the sun! But that was our choice - a taxi would charge between 8 and 10 euros which we were fine with, but when we were not with her there was no reason to get a taxi. In all this was a wonderful hotel and if and when I go back to Sorrento I don't feel like there would be any point in looking at staying anywhere else as this was perfect for us. Also all 10 of us staying there all agreed it was a brilliant choice of hotel and no one could fault it, I would highly recommend a stay here, i will always have fond memories of the Ambasciatori as I got married during our stay here but I have fond memories of the hotel in its own right.More
Grand Old Hotel
Stayed at his hotel September 10th - 13th. Had a room with a partial sea view. This hotel was as described in the other reviews. Was well located with beautiful grounds and direct access to the water. Food and service in the dinning room were quite good. Walk into the center was just enough to work off some calories. Can't really fault anything about this hotel. If you can get a good rate and want to stay close to the center of Sorrento this would be a good choice.More

This is a superb hotel. Well located for the main square, a relaxed ten minute walk. Rooms, garden, bar, restaurant and other public areas are very elegant. Gorgeous tiling and furniture. Quiet large rooms with side view overlooking the sea, very good beds, pillow menu etc. Staff excellent. Breakfast, very good, great choice and quality. If I was being negative, it's very hard to believe that they charge for wifi, but they do. I can also see no reason why the front group of tables at breakfast are not available, why? Too difficult to re-lay for lunch/dinner? I'm sure guests would like to admire the view from the front? That aside, a great hotel.More

Gorgeous clean smart hotel. The room was lovely. It had beautiful furniture and pretty tiled floors. The only minor moan about the room is that it wasn't very cosy, maybe a bit to clinical for me, so it was difficult to relax as it felt almost museum-like. We had a decent sized balcony room with absolutely amazing views over the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. I only wish we could have made more use of the balcony to sit and have breakfast in the mornings, or to have drinks on in the evening, but unfortunately it seemed we had a tag-team of chain-smokers next door. I don't mind people smoking but this was constant, both morning and evening. One morning I got up at 7am to try and get half hour on the balcony but there was so much smoke going past I thought Mount Vesuvius had erupted! We couldn't even leave the balcony doors open to have fresh air in the room, as it was so smokey. There was no bottled water or tea making facilities in the room, and room service food-menu was limited, which seemed strange considering the hotel had a number of restaurants. However service was very good and prompt. The hotel grounds were nice, again with wonderful views, and the hotel restaurant food was top notch. There was a good range of breakfast food and drinks, and breakfast was held in a lovely room over looking the Bay. The staff were all very welcoming, helpful and friendly. The walk to the town square took about 15 minutes at a steady relaxed pace. The walk did become a bit tiring when going back and fore most of the day (especially after all the sight seeing trips), but on a positive note the walked must have helped burn off some of the calories from all the delicious pasta and wine. Minor complaints aside, this is a lovely and well run hotel and I would definitely recommend staying here. From viewing the other hotels near by I would say this was one of the nicer hotels in the area. Great views, decent sized pool, lovely restaurants and good service.More
We spent 10 nights here and enjoyed our stay. We booked a garden room with a partial seaview. We were upgraded up to a Junior Suite at reception which was a mixed blessing. The room on level 2 was amazing but we did have issues with noise and asked to be moved mid stay. The staff were very helpful and although the hotel was fully booked they moved us to a smaller but equally beautiful room on level 5. The remainder of stay was blissfully quiet. The rooms were tastefully decorated and immaculately clean. The staff were all extremely pleasant and helpful. The beach (boarded area) was great. The swimming pool area was ok but the lunch area and the view of the bay of Naples was simply unforgettable. Would highly recommend.More
