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.
We went on a college trip and stayed here for four days and even though we could be a bit loud on the balconies, the staff were polite and were very quick with getting food out to our big group! It was a lovely stay with a short walk into town, great bar service too!
Things you should know about this hotel and it's area.
Just came back from a wedding and stayed in this hotel. Rooms are old fashioned and basic but were nipping clean. There are only 2 small lifts from reception which can only fit 4 people (so good luck if uv'e got loads of luggage), safes were free in the room but were usually â¬10 for the week And the sun beds around the pool were free but again usually â¬15 each. The restaurant on the 5th floor was immaculate and the food was nice for adults but they didnt cater for children. Breakfast was a small portion and you'd need to ask for poached eggs...well egg, along with two small pieces of bacon and half a tommato. Portions could be improved. Also drinks on the evening meal are charged to your room so water would be recommended as its only â¬1.50 beers â¬4 soft drinks â¬2.
Overall the hotel was clean and spotless and the english staff were really helpful. Which was a big bonus if you needed any help with any problems with your room.

Area 5 out of 10
pool rooms ovee look beautiful views, the front of the hotel on looking a petrol station, can be quite noisey.

Not much around an nothing for children to do, no entertainment around the area either.

Good service, good view
We stayed 2 nights and got VIP service. Waiters gave us pointers on shopping outside tourist traps. View was like Central Park. Despite Jet lag we had fun there. Food was good and staff was attentive. Only minus was we couldn't exchange money at desk($ to euros)More

Lovely chill out week
Firstly accept my apologies, I thought that I'd put this review on here when we came home, but must have forgotten as I was ill.
I lovely old fashioned hotel. The staff are polite and helpful. The food was fabulous, 3 choices for a starters and deserts and six choices for the main meal, nothing to fault. The room was clean & spacious, if not a fantastic view, but not a problem. The pool area was small but we could get a space in the shade when needed. The Bar man around the pool was fantastic, friendly, nothing too much trouble and I think that in summer 2015 he will be celebrating a very special birthday :) A short walk in to the main square with lots going on. The FREE walking trip with (Elsie, NOT her real name ;) ) was informative and friendly and well worth going on. We also booked trips the one around the Amalfi coast by boat wa lovely with plenty of free time in the places that we stopped. The highlight of the week was the Gala Dinner....... WOW! Thank you. A really great week holiday. We would definately go back.More

Let's start with the positives - all staff encounters were very good, from reception staff, room service staff and cleaning lady. Unfortunately, that is about all for this hotel.
The hotel was part of a package holiday booking through Emirates, so we didn't technically choose this hotel ourselves. In my mind i had 'Emirates' '4 Star' and 'Sorrento' and my expectations of the hotel built from that. My expectations were wrong.
Our booking showed our room had a balcony and I envisaged sitting on a small table with a coffee or glass of wine gazing out to the Bay of Naples. No, our first level room and its 'balcony' was perched over a noisy busy road, with a view and smell of a petrol station.
The restaurant was closed, the pool had been drained, there was no way to adjust the room temperature so we endured a cold restless night only to find out in the morning that the room temperature is controlled from reception (???). Our bed was two singles butted together, and the blankets were single blankets which did not keep us warm. The wifi was hit and miss and regularly fall out. There was no minibar in the room, nor any hotel information booklets. The walls had some noticeable scuff marks and one of the light fittings was loose on the wall. The towels were very thin and passed their use by date and there was the constant noise of hammering from repairs or renovations going on.
The last straw was having breakfast served in our unpleasant room (i suspect there were very few guests at the hotel so no buffet was on offer) Unfortunately there was cracked china, and a spoon with the remnants of a previous use.
Our (pre-paid, non-refundable) booking was for four nights, however we were so dissatisfied after 24 hours we checked out after the first night and booked alternative accommodation at our own additional expense. It was very disappointing.More
