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 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

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, 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.

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.

We have just returned from our stay at the Ambasciatori and have had the most wonderful holiday here. The hotel is a beautiful, elegant building with every convenience. The location is breathtaking with fabulous views over the bay to Vesuvious and just a 10min walk to the centre of Sorrento. On arrival we were upgraded to a suite which was lovely. The breakfasts here are the best we have had in any Italian hotel- and we have had a few! The hotel had a very good offer on to eat in the evenings and we can heartily recommend the food - a very talented chef is in this kitchen! Facilities are excellent- pool or a lift down to the beach, and terraces to admire the amazing views. All well and good, but the icing on the cake here is the staff- professional, efficient and very friendly- they really enhance your enjoyment of your stay. If you are wondering where to stay in Sorrento you would not do better than the Ambasciatori.More

Brilliant Hotel

We were there for my 70 th birthday and got a super sea view room. It was our second visit the hotel and the staff were just great. We were half board and the food was of a high standard. Would I go again? Like a shotMore

Bellissimo - on all levels!

We stayed for a week recently having first visited the hotel over twenty years ago. They say that things are never the same when you return which is true of our most recent visit - they were even better! The location of the hotel is wonderful with commanding 180 degree front line views of the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius and is set in lovely clifftop gardens and grounds. It is our view that it is in one of the best positions of all the hotels. The main square in the town is about a ten minute gentle stroll away although the pool, gardens, sunbathing deck at sea level and overall position make relaxing in the hotel very pleasant. Our bedroom on the top floor was light and airy with amazing views of the bay and had an L shaped balcony giving side garden and port views as well as a full sea view although the balcony itself was a little narrow which whilst understandable given the buidling and local was disappointing compared to the room and balcony our friend had on the side of the hotel. The public rooms are light and airy and it was a joy to return through the front doors after a day in the heat to a spacious and cool interior - it was a real welcome back! The food in the restaurant is good and the a la carte section partciualrly good when you can eat out on the terrace looking out over the bay and the lights of Naples as you dine. Breakfast was a real treat each morning with a good choice of hot and cold and a very pleasent and obliging chef who cooked eggs to order as well as pancakes to tempt you. The staff here are a real asset and made our stay special. They are very professional, immaculately turned out but very pleasant and friendly and a sense that nothing is too much trouble. For us they made our stay both enjoyable and memorable. On certain nights the hotel also organises themed dinners which are excellent especially the grill presented by a brigade of chefs on the large open air terrace overlooking the sea and a pianist plays both before and after dinner on at least two nights. We would have no hesitation to return - in fact we can't wait!!More

Perfect for our honeymoon!

Beautiful surroundings, fantastic staff and a magnificient view from our room. Highly recomend a room with an oceanview, it is absolutely magic! Food was also excellent. About 10 min walk to reach the centre of Sorrento, but the location is great. The only downside was the cleaning, wich was not 5-stars. The same dirt under the bed all week..but besides that it was nice and tidy. The garden is also stunning. We will come back to this hotel for our second honeymoon!More
