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.

Diamond of a hotel that gave us a wonderful time Celebrating our Ruby Wedding.
We researched our seven day break very carefully ....40years together required total luxury and this hotel met our dream of a wonderful time ....totally ! All staff at this hotel speak very good English...they are friendly, smiling, totally professional and they intend their guests to have the best time ever. Our room was a standard with small balcony overlooking the bay of Naples with Vesuvius towering in the background. Outstanding cleanliness..room was cleaned daily...fresh towels daily ...bathroom beautiful with marble surrounds...lovely toiletries...plenty of hot water...superbly stocked minibar...tea/coffee provided. Comfy bed and superb pillows. Excellent free wifi that worked ! Air conditioning efficient and not noisy. The hotel as was our room adorned with beautiful furniture, many outside terraces, super swimming pool. Sipping cocktails in one of the many lounge areas is a must plus the wonderful bartender is just pure magic ! Breakfast is a sumptuous feast every morning.. Quality table linen, fresh flowers, smiling efficient, waiters ...the view amazing just so relaxing gazing at the sparkling azure sea. Omelettes, full English, Continental, delicious breads, pastries, cakes, fruit.....just such choice and there is no rush....the ambience is just first rate. Guests seem happy, relaxed and children there were well behaved. Takes 10 minutes to walk into town...just watch out you don't trip..pavements are not good very uneven. We ate a la carte for 3 evenings ... Local cuisine.. Fish superb ! Good menu choice.... Home made ravioli filled with deliciousness ! Amazing choice of desserts ! Tasted local wines and enjoyed Many a glass of Prosecco ! The hotel Ambassiotori is exquisite, nothing will disappoint you just make sure you book your trip soon.More

Great views, great public areas
Had a garden view room, and it was very nice and still had a side view of the ocean. The public rooms were equally nice with many seating areas inside and outside on the decks and gardens. The views were amazing from many areas in the hotel. The breakfast room was beautiful and the food selection was very good. Location is about a 10 minute walk to central Sorrento. This can be good or bad. The area is a little quieter, but you have to walk a little to get to all the shops and restaurants. But train station is only a 5 minute walk.More
There are so many hotels to choose from in and around Sorrento that I spent lots of time on Trip Advisor trying to figure out which was best for us. This hotel was recommended to us and ticked all of the boxes, however it was even better than we had expected. The room was on the small side but had an amazing view over the beautiful gardens and the sea. It was serviced twice a day and had lovely toiletries, including hair conditioner, something often overlooked! The public areas are as described on the website, very grand and spotlessly clean. The view of the bay from the restaurant and terrace is just breath taking, photographs really can't do it justice. Every member of staff went out of their way to be helpful and welcoming. I didn't notice everyone's names but Franco in the restaurant did stand out as very professional yet friendly. The location was perfect for us, a flat ten minute walk to the centre of Sorrento, close enough to go back and forth but far enough out to be quiet on an evening. It even had its own garden entrance to the local museum through their orange grove, simply gorgeous. Apparently this hotel has recently been awarded a fifth star and it seems well deserved, we had a wonderful week there and would definitely return. More
Not a 5* hotel
Negatives; No fresh milk (despite there being a fridge in the room) No teaspoons just wooden stirrers No turndown service Very slow wifi Towels are looking and feeling old Room was quite small No iron or ironing board in the room Tea/coffee/milks not replaced Small and basic bathroom which was also dusty. No separate shower and the water pressure isn't that good as the shower is a hose from the taps. Empty bottles of shower gel and shampoo left on the side of the bath. Being forbidden from having any of your own food and drink in your room is just not acceptable and this is the only hotel that I have come across in Italy that requests this. The breakfast was very poor for a hotel of this standard. Making people queue up outside the dining room to order and wait for eggs is not good. This should be an at table waiter service. The dining room has a lovely view of the sea but you can't sit at those tables for breakfast. Why? Check out was too slow, took almost 15 mins and nobody asked if my stay was ok. Positives; Nice pool, garden and lounge areas Lovely view from the balcony Room is nicely decorated Bedding & pillows are of a high quality This isn't a 5* hotel and for the high room rate over â¬300 a night I wouldn't stay here again for what is provided.More
Just returned from a trip of the Amalfi coast. Stayed at this hotel for two nights (2 rooms). Observations - Positives: efficiently run, small but nice heated swimming pool. Negatives: 15 minutes walk to the centre along narrow pavements, doing this walk several times a day would be challenging for families with young children, the elderly or disabled travellers. Air conditioning only available from May to September, our rooms were unpleasantly warm at night, struggled to sleep. Breakfast was only ok for a 5* hotel. One member of staff stood out for us going out of her way to help and provide us with valuable guidance. Thank you Paola!More
