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.

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.
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.

Manager needs to talk to guests
My husband and I have stayed in this hotel before and loved it. Previously we booked a Premier room with seaview--once we had a wonderful room on Floor D, which is four floors below the reception and we also stayed in room 609 which is two floors above the reception and has a huge balcony. This time we decided to treat ourselves and booked a Prestige room. This was approximately â¬400 more expensive than a Premier room for eight nights. We stayed this time in room 508, one floor above the reception, which was lovely but certainly not as good as our previous experiences. The balcony was small and separated from the balcony next door by a little railing--no privacy and not very safe. Anyone on the balcony next door could hear our conversation clearly if our doors were open and when we sat outside, we may as well have been sharing a balcony. Nothing Prestige about this room! I asked at reception and was told that our room was Prestige because we were above reception. This makes no sense particularly since we have experienced rooms above and below reception and they were better. Also I think all the suites are below reception. Our other disappointment this time was the restaurant. We booked half board for our full stay because we had so enjoyed eating breakfast and dinner looking at Capri and Vesuvius. However since our previous stay, all the best tables by the windows are now reserved for people ordering from a very expensive a la carte menu. During our eight night stay only three of these table were ever taken. That means that 6 people in all used them once. For the rest of our stay all of these tables were empty and also some lovely tables outside on the terrace were reserved for a la carte guests but were always empty. What annoyed us further was that these tables were unoccupied but unavailable for breakfast as well. What genius thought up this plan? It shows a terrible lack of respect for us guests who ate there every evening. We really felt quite insulted that our business was not valued and the best tables were reserved for imaginary guests. There were only 4 tables available with a direct seaview for us at dinner and breakfast and all these other lovely window tables were empty.More

I recent spent 5 nights at Hotel Ambasciatori and I had a great time. We had a suite and the room was very big even by American standard; the bathroom was well appointed and big with marble everywhere. We had a million dollar view from the balcony. The staff was very helpful and gave us great tips on places to eat and tours to the surrounding areas. Fabio was very helpful. The hotel is in good location; easy walk to center of town. Sorrento was good base for our day trips to the other regions such as the Almafi Coast and Pompeii. I would definitely recommend this hotel and if I am ever in Sorrento again, this is where I will stay.More

Thank you for making our wedding day so magical!!
We used this hotel as our reception venue for our wedding day on 26th August 2014. It really is a magical setting with breathtaking views over of the bay of Naples, with a fabulous sun set as a backdrop for the evening. We had our arrival drinks on the terrace of the hotel overlooking the bay and our wedding breakfast on the higher terrace taking in the same view, it was a spectacular setting. Giuseppe the restaurant manager and his staff who looked after us on the day where nothing short of exceptional, they offered a high level of service and support during our reception.The attention to detail was second to none.The food was better than we could have ever expected-delicious! Every one of our guests commented on how fantastic everything was and had a truly fantastic time. We will treasure the memories we have of this day and could not have hoped for better-Thankyou to you all! Mr and Mrs IllsleyMore

Amazing hotel, superb sea view
We went to sorrento for our 10 year wedding anniversary and had booked the delux double with a partial garden/sea view. Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly porter to relieve us of our luggage and receptions staff. We loved the look and feel of the place as soon as we walked in but what made it for us was the free upgrade to a suite. The suite is on the second floor above ground level and was right on the see front with an amazing sea view and sunset. There was a lovely breakfast buffet with plenty of selection. I would definitely stay here again and recommend others to do so. Thank you for making us feel so welcome, the upgrade and all your assistance.More
Great Hotel in Sorrento
The Grand Hotel Ambasciatori had been on our "list" for years and we were not disappointed. The good reviews you read in general say it all. Our room was lovely with a spectacular sea view (Thanks for the upgrade!) Always clean and with efficient and quiet air conditioning. We found that it was a little further out from the centre than we had anticipated particularly as there is nothing much of interest along the road from town, and as it is on the main one way system, it is very busy and some of the pavement pinch points mean it is not always a pleasant walk. The staff are, in the large majority, great, suffering our attempts at Italian, and efficient and polite. Especial mention here to Tonino, Gennaro, Franco and Valentino for great service with style and to Marco for speedy and delicious eggs, omelettes and pancakes in the morning, even after a broken night with his handsome little son. Just a couple of points to mention. During the second week of our stay the lunch service started taking longer and longer to the point where we had finished the bread and wine before our food arrived (best part of an hour) this was a kitchen issue, not the guys serving. On the last day we tried the beach bar - even worse - over an hour for a sandwich and a plate of Parma ham and cheese and another three quarters for the senior guy to stop talking on his mobile and put together two dishes of ice cream - three of the smallest scoops we had anywhere in Sorrento. Perhaps if he spent more time assisting the guests and less time counting how many towels you used, this service might improve. A great hotel where you can only have 1 towel per person per day whether it was soaked in sea water or not. No such limit was applied around the pool. The evening meal was always great - we ended up eating in more than expected because it was comparable to many local restaurants and had a great view. Overall we had a fantastic holiday and would stay here again.More
