A large pool and Sorrento’s shops and cafés close by make a winning combination.
The hotel is very well placed for views of Mount Vesuvius. And it’s handy for getting into Sorrento, too – the main square, Piazza Tasso, is less than 10 minutes’ walk from here.
The pool is generously proportioned, with plenty of room for laps, and there’s a bar at one end for drinks and snacks. The restaurant serves buffet breakfasts and waiter-service dinners alongside first-rate views.
You can choose from a buffet or cooked breakfast, whilst dinner is waiter service from a set menu. An à la carte menu is also available to tempt you with gastronomic delights. A gala dinner is held once a week where guests can mingle and share tables.
Why not enjoy a leisurely drink, or crafty cocktail whilst you soak up the sun? Standing at one end of the pool the pool bar also provides tasty snacks, so you don't have to return to your apartment to get a bite.
These twin rooms with their natural tones running throughout come with a pool view and can sleep two or three people. They come with air-conditioning from mid-June to mid-September. Plus a mini-fridge is available at a charge.
I suppose there are two questions most people want to know.
1 did we have a good time? - Yes.
2 would we go back again? - Yes.
Our room was basic but comfortable, similar in standard to a premier inn. It was clean and had just about everything we needed, except tea making facilities. Our air-conditioning was broken and took three requests before we were provided with a fan, but this was a minor irritation. On the whole staff were extremely friendly especially the English barmaid in the reception bar. The pool was a good size with plenty of room and sun loungers (but we only used this once) Having spoken to other guests we're glad we had paid the extra for views across the bay and Vesuvius The breakfast was first class with an extensive choice. The evening meal was adequate. The Thomson brochure was fairly accurate in it's descriptions including the walk into the town centre, although this did feel twice as long towards the end of the week.More

Definitely not 4 star, would say it was only really a 2/3 star hotel.Room had water leak from ceiling and a dreadful damp smell,; even cupboard that tv was sitting on had water on it. Wall opposite to ceiling leek was also damp and had water damage, this damage was not new. Hotel booked out so was unable to change rooms, although they did give me extra towels to mop up the water. Had to sleep with balcony door open to breathe from damp mould smell, which made room very noisy and little if any sleep was had. I was given free drinks to compensate this, but would much preferred a decent night sleep. This was apparently a superior room and view was lovely and Staff were friendly. We had 2 rooms booked and my mother was staying in the other room. She got a knock on the door at 10pm from previous guests that were sent up because they had left something in the room with no warning they just turned up at the door. Unfortunately my photos don't do the damage justice as the ceiling was actually dipped down where the leak was. Food was very average to poor but the wait staff were excellent. Only powerpoint that would work was the one in the bathroom.Would not stay here again and probably wouldn't bother coming back to sorrento, which is a shame as I loved Rome and look forward to seeing other areas of Italy.

Grand hotel Flora. Sorrento
Very nice hotel. .comfortable rooms. Nice pool with poolside bar. Very good value food and drinks . There is also a bar in reception open after 6pm. Can get very busy and as there is only 1 bar staff most of the time you do have to wait for quite a long time for your drinks. Staff are all very friendly and helpful. This hotel is situated on the main road so a poolside room is mush better and quieter than a road side room. 4th floor rooms should be avoided if possible as the restaurant is situated on the 5th floor and can be rather noises in the morning when they are preparing breakfast which starts around 6:30.More

Staff were very good especially in the dining room who greeted everyone in the morning with a loud 'Bon Giourno' which my daughters loved. The Gala dinner on the Wednesday night was especially good. Meals on half board in the dining room were very good quality and we only had dinner out on one night. Meals by the pool, at lunchtime, however were not the best and could not be recommended. Michelle, from Sheffield, who runs the main bar is very good but the service is often slow because she is on her own and lots of people were ordering cocktails. Could do with an enclosed bar rather than just seating in the lobby with help at busy times. Biggest problem for me were the flies in the main bar and by the pool which we did not experience anywhere else in Sorrento. It seemed a bit mean was that you had to pay 10 euros a week to use the fridge in the rooms. The free wifi was useless. We are thinking of returning next year and combining with a week in Tuscany.More
First time in Sorrento and absolutely loved it. 4 of us came for a family wedding, and booked the hotel back in January. Although it had some negative reviews we thought we'd chance it, mainly because the swimming pool area looked really good and wasn't situated on the roof of the hotel. We were very pleasantly surprised, and couldn't fault the hotel at all.
Our room was at the front of the hotel on the 3rd floor, and yes it was quite noisy at times, but never a problem, providing the windows were shut. Sister-in-law upgraded before we arrived and got a great pool room on the second floor.
The food was as good as I've had anywhere; Breakfast selection was varied, both hot and cold, with lovely fresh bread and the best pancetta ever. The evening meals were a treat, with a great choice every evening, fantastic food, served by attentive friendly waiters. All with panoramic views to die for.
The pool was massive with plenty of sunbeds, although they are well packed in around the pool area. We never had a problem getting 4 beds together, pool towels are also provided.
A short 5 min walk down the very busy road gets you into the centre, and there's a great little bar right next door perfect for a night cap before bedtime.
I would recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again the next time we visit Sorrento and the beautiful Amalfi coast.More
