With over 120 years of history under its belt, this place is like sleeping in a little bit of Italian history.
The Hotel Jaccarino’s not your usual run-of-the-mill hotel. This place is more than 120 years old, so it’s like sleeping in a little bit of Italian history. And this being Italy, you can expect some superb scenery, too. For starters, there’s a marvellous view over Sorrento and the stunning Bay of Naples. Plus, you’re surrounded by miles of towering trees and lush greenery.
Inside the hotel, the style definitely leans towards the traditional side. Terracotta tiles and yellow walls offer a Mediterranean feel. While a large wall tapestry and quality furniture offer a touch that’s 100% Italian. The bedrooms are decked out in a similar style, but have their own individual character. Each one’s different in size and shape, but all come with traditional wooden furniture.
Rooms aside, we can’t talk about this place without mentioning the fabulous pool. Surrounded by a large sun terrace and plenty of sunbeds, it offers some of the best sea views around. But you don’t have to swim or sunbathe to enjoy the scenery. The poolside snack bar has an outdoor terrace, so you can order a plate of Italy’s finest spaghetti and enjoy the magical surroundings.
So that’s the daytime covered – but what’s there to do after dark? Well, the lounge and bar offers plenty in the way of beers, wines and spirits. And if you like live music, there’s a band once a week on the outdoor terrace. But if you want something more, you’re close enough to hop on the evening bus and head into nearby Sorrento.
So, if you’re looking for a picture postcard spot that’s high on romance and low on noise, this place is just the ticket.

Certainly a holiday to remember
On arrival we found that the hotel was everything we hoped for. Check-in was quick and friendly and we found the room was large,clean and cool with a very comfortable bed. The whole hotel was very quiet with a great lounge and a shaded balcony with a view across the bay of Naples. Breakfast was a very ample buffet and the evening meal had a reasonable choice served in two sittings under the direction of head waiter Nino. During a boat trip to Amalfi, my partner suffered a fall resulting in broken bones in her foot and being unable to walk. The help and kindness we received from all the hotel was absolutely amazing and far exceeded anything we could have expected. Luigi, the hotel porter brought in a wheelchair and crutches from his home and Nino organised meals in the room until she could get down to the restaurant. At lunchtime, the staff at the pool bar served us lunch on the balcony (strictly against the rules), the bar being down three flights of steps. Thanks to the amazing staff of the Iaccarino, we were able to enjoy the remainder of our somewhat restricted holiday and I am sure that we will return.More

Extremely good value
We booked a room with sea view and balcony and were allocated Room 3 overlooking the pool and out over Sorrento to Vesuvius and much more. My wife loved it. In fact she loved everything about Hotel Jaccarino, the staff, the food, the way it was run, its character, the view, ...................after a week at the place I was looking forward to going home, but only so she wouldn't keep going on about how much she liked it! I really can't add much to the more-thorough positive reviews below. OK our room was a little dated and the large bathroom, very clean, but somewhat old fashioned, with a small shower. The wardrobes were a bit old, but we had a safe in the room and air conditioning and that view...........and the few Channels we could get on the TV were a waste of time....but thank god we weren't tempted to waste our holiday watching it..... We liked the firm mattresses, but a couple of the pillows were hard. But from our point of view this was just 'character' totally fitting with the 'mansion' style in the large and airy public rooms. Having wifi throughout the hotel would have been a distraction and having to sit close to reception to get a signal helped you keep a focus on doing what you should do on holiday: stay off the internet and get out of your room! I could go on and on...but just read other reviews and I'm sure the positive ones will far outweigh the negatives (which you may detect are from people who make a habit of moaning and whingeing from their other reviews). My wife loved Hotel Jaccarino, even with it's slight deficiencies in a few small areas, so much so that she wants to re-book for next year. Can that say anything other than we recommend Hotel Jaccarino!More

Great holiday stunning location
Just returned today and to summarise Hotel - typical Italian architecture - loved the place. Overall 4.5 out of 5 Rooms - best rooms 50, 51 and 52. Top floor fantastic views. 5 out of 5 we stayed in 51 Bed - very comfortable, bit of road noise and dogs barking - 4 out of 5 Staff - generally all the staff were good. Special thanks to Luigi and Nino in the restaurant. 4 out of 5 Food - not bad and very edible. Loads of it 3.5 out of 5 Location - cannot be bettered and with the village of Sant Agate at the back of the hotel - perfect. 5 out of 5 Would definitely recommend this hotel and would have no hesitation in going backMore
Could be better, but certainly not terrible
Having stayed here for 10 nights I would say, as the title suggests, there are certainly things that could be improved but that's not to say my wife and I didn't have a good time. The pool area is lovely and the quality of food at lunch time was fantastic. The only day we were aware of it being busy around the pool area was the second Sunday of our stay, most likely as the hotel's shuttle bus doesn't run that day. Having stayed in and around Sorrento previously, I found the evening meals to be similar to other hotels; if you want a high class dinner then go out, but what is served at dinner is fine, although on a couple of occasions we wished we could have two starters rather than a main meal. My main issue with our stay however, does relate the evening meal. Whilst Nino the maÃ®tre d was lovely, he is the only person who takes food orders. We chose the 20:15 sitting (you choose on your first day whether you want to sit at 19:00 or 20:15 for your entire stay) and, if you time it just wrong, you can be waiting 30 minutes before you've even got a drink. We ended up picking our wine/water up on the way to our table and rarely getting a different drink. The staff were friendly and helpful - I mentioned to a couple of them that I was looking to improve my Italian, to which Nino, Ciro, the elder barman (whose name I never got) and all of the reception staff were particularly helpful in teaching me. Our room was on the top floor, overlooking the pool/terrace with great views of Vesuvio and Sorrento (speaking of which, it took us 45 minutes to walk into Sorrento, we didn't try to walk back). There isn't much to the balcony - you would struggle to both stand out there at the same time - but to be able to see that view as I opened the curtains was certainly worth the extra money. We booked our excursions directly through the hotel and had a slight issue, although I'm not sure where the fault lies. We were not booked onto the coach from the hotel to Nerano port, but were advised by the driver we could get on and stand up. Thankfully 2 people from a different hotel didn't show, otherwise my pregnant wife and I would have had a 45 minute ride on some very windy roads. On the plus side, if you do the Amalfi drive and get Luca as your guide and Francesco as your driver you will be in safe hands. Sant' Agata itself was pleasant. There is a great ice cream place within a 5 minute walk away from the hotel and several places to eat. We ate twice at Buenos Aires, which did great pizza and once at the restaurant directly across from there, where the food was good. There are so many hotels in and around the Sorrento/Sant' Agata that I probably wouldn't stay there again, however if I were on a trip where I was assigned a hotel on arrival and received Iaccarino (pronounced Yak-arino) then I wouldn't be upset either.More
Fantasic!! Don't listen to the bad reviews!!!!
I have just returned from my amazing holiday and stay in this hotel! I was incredibly shocked by the other reviews that have recently been left!! I had the best holiday here in Sorrento, as a young solo female traveller I felt 100% safe and relaxed in the hotel. The check in was very quick but informative and I immediately felt at home, I stayed in room 86 which I was blown away by! The room had not 1 but 2!!! balconies, wasn't quite a sea view but a beautiful view on the mountains and pool( well worth it as I didn't pay any extra for balcony or sea view). The room was above the snack bar in the separate building so was very quiet as only a few rooms in this building, the room was massive, fluffy white towels changed daily, room kept very clean, safe, air con, fridge all in room- if you want a good room pick 86!!! The hotel rear entrance leads on to the little village that is s' agata which is lovely for lunch and evening drinks and extremely cheap. The breakfast is a buffet style in the hotel and accomodated everyone, fresh fruit, juice, bread, cereals, meats etc... And dinner ...was fantastic!!! I am an extremely fussy eater but every night I found something to eat as there was a choice of 3 starters and 3 mains (usually fish, veggie and meat option) so catered for everyone! IF you didn't like something they would happily make you something else just ask!! It was like 2 mains and desert every night..!! The staff were brilliant so friendly and welcoming.. You could sit in the restaurant looking out at the beautiful views! The hotel was easierly reached by the public Sita bus and the bus was â¬1.20 each way, you can use the bus to reach sorrento, positano and amalfi. The trips advertised at the hotel are great and great value! I nearly booked the Capri trip for â¬80 prior to my stay but when I got there it was only â¬43! This included pick up from the hotel, boat trip round the island to see all the grottos etc, then5 hours on Capri island, boat trip back and transport back to the hotel! By far an amazing day and Capri is a must see!! The hotel is incredibly peaceful and quiet and just what you need after a day trip out, you can visit other areas and come back for a good night sleep! The views are breathtaking and drinks on the terrace in the evening are a must... Rossinis were my personal faves :) The pool is big enough and the pool area was never too busy as people are out and about on trips! No need to leave your towel on the beds to reserve them or get up at the crack of dawn! A lot of moaning about the pool being cold.... You would complain if it was hot!! It was cold but once you were in it was lovely! People have to moan about something! I felt all the staff were completely welcoming and friendly and would do anything to help, so no idea why some reviews say the opposite, I think it's how you approach them and speak to them, if your happy and chatty to them they are back to you! The hotel had free wifi in the lounge which is fab, a few moans as it wasn't anywhere else but your on holiday so wanting to get away from home and Facebook right?! I managed to FaceTime home and message etc in the evenings from the Lounge and terrace so just what you need to contact home to let them know your safe. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a peaceful get away, not really ideal for children as there's not much around to do, you have to travel out to visit other places. Thank you hotel jaccarino for a fantastic stay and an amazing holiday! Definitely will return here again!More
