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.

Refined hotel ideally positioned
We crossed three days in family in this establishment of a rare beauty. Placed in a quiet district at 10 minutes of the city center (extremely positive), the hotel allies luxury, modern comfort and tradition. We stayed in a luxurious suite with sea wiew. The bathroom is very spacious with a very beautiful stone floor of tradition, also for grounds. The basket of fruits and the Spumante for welcome in the chamber were very appreciated. Small balcony. Corner lounge with sofa bed for our daughter. The hotel, caught in rocks, overhangs the sea, which is accessible with an elevator. Deckchairs are located on a pontoon. You can have lunch outside on the terrace at the edge of the swimming pool, with a spectacular view on the sea and Vesuvius. The proposals are varied and interesting, with correct prices. Every evening a particular cocktail is proposed among the classics at the bar : irreproachable quality and originality, nothing to say. The breakfast served in the beautiful room of the restaurant, was varied, copious and with an irreproachable service. Only remark : our suite being situated directly two floors under the restaurant, the noise of chairs in the morning early and in the evening annoyed us strangely, it's a pity. Finally, we can only recommend you this magnificent hotel.More

Stunning views, beautiful pool area/gardens.
I stayed here in July/August 2014 with my 2 daughters aged 10 and 14. I have visited Sorrento in the past but my daughters have never been to Italy so I wanted to stay somewhere really special. Grand Hotel Ambasciatori did not disappoint. We had a warm welcome and were taken by the spacious reception area. We had a standard family room with a balcony overlooking the pool area (I forgot the number!) a double bed and one single. Nice big rooms, clean and plenty of wardrobe space. We stayed here on a bed & breakfast basis. The breakfast room is lovely - an open balcony overlooking the Mediterranean. The food was great with a good selection of pastries, cereal, fruits, cold meats, toast, hot food (eggs, sausage etc) with the option of freshly made omelettes and crepes to order. My youngest LOVED the crepes, choosing to have several every morning filled with Nutella! Fresh tea, coffee and hot chocolate were offered throughout aswelll as as fresh juices, water and Prosecco. The pool was a good size with around 15 well spaced loungers and a bar/small food area. This also led on to beautiful gardens with spectacular views of the Marina. During the sunset, this was truly special. The private decking/bathing area is accessed via a lift in the hotel, then through a small tunnel. It wasn't the easiest to locate and the loungers filled up by 8am most days. It is a very relaxing place, perfect for catching the sunshine with a book - however my youngest got bored rather quickly and wanted to head back to the pool area so we didn't spend too many days down there all in all. We never stayed in the hotel for our evening meal as I believe Sorrento has too many great foodie places to stay in one place! We did however stay for lunches in the pool snack bar. The food was generally pizza,pasta dishes, sandwiches etc. A little over priced but good enough standard. My only complaint was that the drinks were pretty extortionate throughout the hotel. 4 euros for a bottle of still water, 9 euros for a non-alcoholic cocktail. The staff were all lovely, from the cheery cleaning staff wishing us a good morning with a smile to the receptionist who was very helpful and polite. The location is ideal, only a 10 minute walk into Sorrento and an easy route to find. I regularly walked back to the hotel in the evenings with my daughters and always felt safe. As a whole, we were very happy with the hotel, I think it would be more suitable for couples/honeymooners etc as opposed to a family holiday, purely as it is such a romantic setting therefore slightly wasted on children.More

A perfect setting.
The hotel itself is beautiful and the views are simply amazing. The seaside pool and sundeck were so relaxing and are well worth a visit. This hotel was everything we expected and more. Our room was very nicely appointed, comfortable and even had a nice balcony to enjoy the views. Great location and very easy to get to fabulous restaurants and shopping by foot.More

Everything you hope a Hotel will be ...and more
Our second visit to this wonderful Hotel. Stayed here June 2014 and had a garden view/part sea view room, which was spacious and well positioned to enjoy the beautiful Hotel location, looking onto the bay of Naples with Vesuvius in the background is quite something. The staff as per our previous stay were so polite and very helpful, nothing was ever too much trouble. Sorrento town is a easy 8 minute walk and is a superb, with lots to do and see. Of course the food here is just amazing. What is very special about the Ambasciatori is the garden pool area, this for us anyhow was the highlight of our stay. Its just so relaxing here, beautiful scenery, friendly non invasive atmosphere and baking in the early sun with a waft of food coming from the outdoor restaurant ....well simply heavenly. You have many choices in Sorrento, there are many fine hotels, however for us there is only one hotel and hence the reason we return this June for the third time in as many years!More

We stayed at The Ambasciatori when we got married in Italy. The staff were lovely and very accommodating even though some of our requests probably pushed the boundaries a little (a room for the groom to get ready in) which they happily did, free of charge. Our room had a view of Mount Vesuvius which was amazing to wake up to every morning. Breakfast was beautiful, as a vegetarian I didn't have any trouble at all finding something to enjoy. Really couldn't fault it at all. This place holds very special memories for me and i would love to go back sometime.More
