Grand Hotel Ambasciatori  

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.

Outdoor pool

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.

Private beach

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.

On arrival at the hotel we were greeted by the friendliest of staff, there was someone to take our bags to our room & that's a first for us. The rooms are light & spacious & lovely & clean, they have free wifi & safes on the rooms & ports where you can plug in a laptop or other device if you want. I could go on about how the staff go the extra mile but they really do, our grandson was taken ill, he's only 1 & they arranged a doctor straight away & have been taking an interest in him the whole holiday. Breakfast is buffet style but they have a chef on hand to cook anything egg related - omelette, scrambled eggs, pancakes & fried eggs if you want them, there is a selection of hot food & a huge selection of everything else, seems to me that all tastes are catered for. The pool is really nice with jets, bubbles & a waterfall at the touch of a button, at nigh the pool lights change colour & it looks fabulous. I highly recommend staying here if you want a relaxing & welcoming holiday.More

Grand Hotel is a grand experience

Sorrento is a beautiful, fascinating city and the Ambasciatori is beautiful, fantastic hotel. It is built into the side of a cliff rising from the ocean. You reach the water by taking an elevator down into the ciiff. It is dramatic and very comfortable. From the greeting at the front desk to the gorgeous lobby and grounds your visit is as romantic and enjoyable as possible. In addition to the ocean access there is a pool with surroundings right out of old Hollywood with every modern convenience. Our large room had a huge balcony overlooking the ocean and beautiful majolica tile floors and lovely comfortable furnishings. I loved the shower in our large bath. the Ambasciatori is a short walk from town center(10 minutes) and that is a great advantage. It is quiet, and right on the ocean. I think that a hotel staff is judged by how well they handle adversity. We had two transportation problems that were not caused by the hotel but they fixed them for us quickly with lots of grace and reassurance and saved us money in the process. That is the best type of service. We really felt that that they cared about our experience in Sorrento as well as our comfort in the hotel. The best part of our day was the generous and delicious buffet on the patio or in the dining room. The lavish surroundings and warm staff made us very comfortable. The hotel dining room was so good that we ate there three times during our stay. We usually avoid hotel hotel dining. We would have happily lounged on the luxurious grounds all day but the staff was great at suggesting things we should see in the area. Pompeii is very close by and worth the train trip to get to. The Marina Grande section of Sorrento is a great walk from the hotel. As a place to relax and enjoy this is simply the best!!!More


Wonderful stay in Sorrento

Sitting here on one of the terraces waiting for our transfer, I feel I must let you know what a great hotel this is! If you want to be looked after by extremely professional and attentive staff in idyllic surroundings this could be the right place for you. The food is excellent and varied, we stayed half board and dined al fresco most nights overlooking the bay with glorious sunsets. Our room was great,711, partial sea view, double balcony, don't worry re. "Partial" because the view was spectacular, the room was ready when we arrived and a complimentary Bottle of fizz soon turned up- we had informed the hotel that it was our 30th wedding anniversary, this was a nice touch. The whole complex is utterly spotlessly clean and luxurious in its decor and furnishing, nice pool out front with jacuzzi, lovely gardens and terraces and a great "beach" area where we spent most of our time enjoying the sun and sea breezes, my wife braved the sea, swimming in the lido which she assured me was wonderful. As with any hotel, the staff make it what it is, everyone we dealt with had a smile on their face and were extremely attentive and professional. It is really difficult to fault this beautiful place in any way. 10 minute walk to central Sorrento which is buzzing with energy, trips to Pompeii, Herculaneum, Amalfi are easy to do yourself.We went to Amalfi on the red bus tour 10€ each and got a ferry back 17€ each great place don't miss it drive out boat back easy! If you're about to come to this hotel relax and get excited because it's great!More

Mike C,

Brilliant hotel with great staff & service.

We booked 12 nights at this hotel with Thomsons and couldn't fault anything at the hotel. Our double room overlooking the gardens and pool had a large bed, was really comfortable and the room was well cleaned every day. The restaurant staff were excellent - always smiling, polite and helpful - particularly Marianna, Franco, Claudio, Gennaro and the Maitre D Giovanni. The selection of food at breakfast was huge - from freshly made omelettes, lots of fresh fruits, cereals, breads, cakes, as well as a good cooked breakfast. We stayed half board so ate in the restaurant most evenings - this was also a real treat. As well as being able to watch the sun set over the Bay of Naples & Vesuvius, the choice of food & local wines was quite extensive. Lots of variety, all well prepared and presented. We were also able to switch from dinner to lunch when we wanted to. Hotel has a great location just a few minutes stroll from the busy shops, bars and restaurants of Sorrento, but the hotel itself was very quiet. The pool area has plenty of large sunbeds, and there was the added bonus of the beach pontoon, which also had lots of sunbeds. Overall we had a really good time and would recommend this hotel to anyone who wanted a well located hotel in the centre of Sorrento with comfortable rooms, good food, and brilliant staff.More

Standards slipping

Stayed here for two weeks 27th May to 10 June. The staff are fantastic they can't do enough for you, friendly and helpful, the hotel garden and views are out of this world. We booked half board for our stay which was very expensive and in our opinion not worth it, the breakfast was up to three star standard and the evening meal boring and cold, we both had an upset stomach on our first night and on the third night I had a bout of vomiting, we ate out after that every evening. The room we had was lovely and spotless and had a side sea view and a view of the main road, the road is very very busy and noisy, cars are bumper to bumper with constant car and bike horns so we kept the windows closed. We enjoyed our stay here but I think they need to improve their food and maybe employ a chef with more experience and spend more on quality foods. They can't expect guests to pay top prices for poor food.More
