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.

Facilities ► View all
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 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.

This hotel is just great
We returned from a week's stay yesterday and staying at the Ambasciatori really was the cherry on the cake in our Sorrento trip. The hotel is in a fantastic position, fabulous views and the gardens and terrace areas are delightful. We spent a few happy hours sunbathing on the pontoon/bathing deck area where there is a bar and attentive waiter. We learned from friends of ours who were staying in other hotels along this strip that Ambasciatori is one of the few hotels who have the pontoon area 'open' at this time of year. Also, we thought the food and drinks were reasonably priced for this calibre of hotel. Other pluses - the room was a good size, we even had a small spare bedroom. It's about a 10 minute walk into the centre of town, for us this was a benefit as it meant it was a bit quieter. The decor and soft furnishings are pristine and the staff all very competent and attentive. For us, it couldn't be faulted.More

Room with a view
We stayed 4 nights in a fantastic room at the Ambasciatori. Although it didn't exactly come cheap, we were most impressed with the light, airy, spacious feel of the room and the incredible sea/Vesuvius view it offered. It's definitely worth paying a little extra to see that stunning expanse of blue as soon as you wake up in the morning! The room definitely exceeded our expectations compared with the pictures on the hotel's website, with the decor being fresh and quite modern but not feeling characterless. Our other favourite place at the hotel was the 'beach' - we loved popping down to the deck by the sea for a spot of sunbathing/swimming/lunch and a refreshing sea breeze. For us, it was much preferable to the hot, busy pool area. We found the rest of our experience at the hotel had a little less 'wow factor' - e.g. the staff seemed extremely harried at times, the car park was chaos, and breakfast tended to be very hectic, but perhaps this was just because it was rather busy while we were there. Ultimately, I would consider staying again.More

A wonderful part of our lives
We came here once with our young family by chance, and have come back every year for over 10 years (even our now grown up kids with their partners). Sorrento is magical place whichever hotel you stay in but this one is really special. The sea view rooms are fantastic, the gardens and pool beautiful if you like to relax and idle the day away, the food very good if you choose not to go out but the best aspect of all is the staff. Old school courtesy and professionalism and a feeling like you are part of the family make for a very special experience. Regulars (including friends we have introduced to the Ambasciatori) rebook early each year...More

Elegant hotel with a stunning view.
Stayed for four nights for a girls weekend. Spacious airy room on the top floor with a balcony from which to enjoy the dramatic view across the bay to Vesuvius. Charming staff, lovely terraces and that stunning view at breakfast. Be sure to take the lift down to the decked pontoon, very sophisticated, very European. Thoroughly recommend.More
