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.

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
our italian dream holiday
went here with my teenage step children whole loved the place. food was exceptional and had a fussy eater in our party who ate everything in sight. pool area was lovely, Olympic sized pool and was quiet most days. staff were very friendly and always happy to help. chef even supplied a birthday cake for breakfast and sang to me which was lovely. the gala dinner evening was superb and staff paraded food around the room whilst they sang and clapped as they served. the restaurant has outstanding views. visited rome and had a brilliant tour guide, long journey but broken up by stopping off for dinner. very hot in july it was over 40 degrees , recommend you buy a parasol and drink lots. managed to see everything we could in rome as out tour guide showed us a good route to take to ensure we saw all the sights. beaches work out expensive to go on as they are all privately owned, we did go on the bathing platforms as the beach is pebbly and you cant lie on it. did work out expensive to go on there. if you have a hotel with a private beach then use it as its all turnstiles that you pay at to go on the beach areas. all in all a lovely holiday with a hotel situated just right with lots of shops and piazza's nearby. we were lucky to see a religious parade in the square and all the priests were dressed in different coloured silk robes carrying a statue of our lady, kids were singing and music was playing, truly a lovely experience. would recommend the grand flora hotel, lovely staff and good food. would also recommend the foreigner's club for food and leonnelli's on the beach for the most amazing special coffee's,More

Waiters made the holiday !
10th-20th oct weather was amazing given a room Under the restaurant on the first night of arival very late , and shattered we had to accept the horrendous noise that woke us up after a few hours of sleep.knowing that as soon as we had breakfast we would demand another room my nan was 88 and the noise was simply horrendous over our heads , this was challenging and very hard work on such little sleep the staff were very defensive and not very helping and almost fair to say argumentative to my requests . They finally showed us a few other rooms some with charges made payable to change . Some free . We choose the one right by the corroded nearest the pool as he others were too hot . This room seemed bigger than the other rooms and ground floor nice easy access for my nan. After that awful start the staff really made it up to us Edmundo went above and beyond to please our dietary requirements , and I was in heaven as a vegetarian the food was delicious evey time a big high light . The staff were attentive and friendly which is what you wish for. The pool area was pleasant , the snacks were decent . The area on the pool side is quieter , we were ground floor after our move and quiet . The shower was good . The beds were reasonable . The location was excellent the bus stop just outside into the Marino piccolo area or the plaza for shopping and resturants or a very noiesy but enjoyable walk . I would not recommend the area for pensioners who struggle with walking it's very difficult area to walk around . My nan almost fell so many times .... Beautiful area interesting location plenty of choice for eating out and spoilt with shops . The area to sunbathe was worth paying for so you could enjoy the weather .... I'd love to go back and I will return and stay within the plaza area next time . I would refer a friend to hotel flora but the attitude of reception staff really lets the hotel down . The English bar lady is very good at her job and very attentive vey friendly and made it pleasnt every night . Hotel could do with more entertainment very lacking in that department fine if your more mature . I was bored in my early thirties . The African Man on reception at night had much better customer service skills . The italian bar girl was also lovely . Good service . Ask for a room by the pool for a cooler bigger quieter room then you can enjoy your holiday more .More
