We stayed for a week at the Grand Hotel Riviera, half board, booked through Thomsons .We paid extra for a sea view and were not disappointed: the view was stunning. The room was modern , comfortable and spotless and the hotel public areas were beautiful.
The swimming pool was on the small side, but there was also a lovely large bathing platform with access to the sea.
Breakfast had a choice of both hot and cold dishes. The evening meal had several choices and the food was good. Wine prices were reasonable.
It was a 10-15 minute level walk into the centre of Sorrento where there were good restaurants and bars: we especially liked Caruso for a sumptuous evening meal, also the Foreigner's Club for lunch where there were superb views over the bay. The shops in the back streets of the old town were very touristy but the main street, Corso Italia, was stylish.
The concierge at the hotel was very helpful and booked us on the Sorrento open top bus tour and arranged for it to stop right outside the hotel to pick us up. We also visited Herculaneum and Pompeii by taking the local train ,the Circumvesuvio, which was cheap and convenient although very busy .We also booked a private people carrier ,which was cost effective as there were four of us, for the Amalfi Drive.
Altogether an excellent holiday.
A wonderful place and quite Acontrast,busy town area,excellent veiws,lots to see and trips to islands and Pompeii.Hotel Rivera was a plus and sorry to come away! Its on the list to revisit.
Very friendly and helpful hotel staff. The hotel was spotlessly clean, room was good but would have thought in a four star hotel, the room could have been a little larger. Food good, varied menus. Drinks prices were expensive, we found that most of the bars in the area were noticeably cheaper, the result was an empty hotel bar with no atmosphere. Can't help thinking that if drinks prices had been more competitive, more people would have used the hotel bar.
The area both in Sorrento and the surrounding area is very scenic.
Very friendly hotel with fantastic views. lovely room (we had a junior suite) Evening meals were of a good standard although we had to ask for time between the courses as it was otherwise straight after each other, they were happy to do this. We went on 2 trips, Pompei half day, EXCELLENT, this is not to be missed.
Also we did the exclusive boat trip around Capri, (for 12 eople) this was a full day trip including lunch and was a lovely day out, you also got time on the Island.
Did the quick tour with the Rep was quite informative and did book a meal at a restaurant called O PARRUCCHIANO. The setting was lovely, it is full of plants, however the food was a dissapointment!!
The centre is very nice for a stroll with little alleyways of shops, it is about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. We did find a nice little bar about a minute from the hotel which was very reasonably priced and very friendly.
I feel the hotel and the resort are more geared towards adults and not really suitable for children due to the pool size and lack of beach/ clubs etc.
