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.

With one of the most beautiful views on the Riviera, the pool terrace offers the chance to relax, unwind and enjoy not just the warm sun and cooling waters of the pool, but to soak in the scenery across the Bay of Naples to Vesuvius, and along the coast to nearby Sorrento. If you can tear yourself away from that, the pool offers a calm oasis to have a leisurely swim before returning to your lounger for a soothing drink from the nearby pool bar.

Hotel Jaccarino was Wonderful
We stayed here for a week last October and it was all and more then what we expected. Yes, okay, some parts of the hotel could do with a freshening up, looking a little tired and dated, but it was clean and well cared for. The staff were a delight. Helpful, a tentative, they went out of their way to please, nothing was too much trouble... The room was of a good size (furniture rather dated) but all was spotlessly clean, well done housekeeping. The food was good, well presented, plentiful and very fresh. The restaurant service first class, thank you Nino.... Please be aware that the Hotel is situated in the hills above Sorrento (the views are incredible) in the village of Santa Agata above Sorrento and not in town of Sorrento. And although the hotel runs a free mini bus service into Sorrento, you do have to book it. However, the local bus stops right outside the hotel and is cheap and very regular. We are looking forward to our return visit and this time we shall be staying for much longer...... A must is a ride on the Little Road Train (20 euros) which you catch in the Village a short walk from the back of the hotel.... The little train takes you on a wonderful tour of the area details can be got from the hotel reception.More

This is an extremely late, late review as we stayed here in 2001 and then returned in 2004!! I've had to select April 2013 as date of travel as this is all the database will allow. We travelled in June and then in May - I remember it rained in May. This hotel is next to the village of Sant' Agata sui due Golfi and has a real traditional feel with rose petals on the ground on a Sunday. On our first visit we stayed in a room high up in the hotel over looking the church bell tower. On our next visit we had a terrace. I can see from the website that the rooms have been refurbished although we had no complaints about the furnishings when we stayed. We would go down to Sorrento in the courtesy bus during the day and walk around having a drink at the Piazza. I wanted to go back to see the Sorrento dogs one of whom had put on a lot of weight!! We went to Positano on the bus - the Amalfi Coast is magnificent. We went to Pompei and Naples as well. I was not disappointed with the food at the hotel and loved the service from the waiters. When we went down the winding roads into town I could see all of the other hotels and thought we had made the right choice. Who would have thought there would be a village town behind our hotel? Sorrento is full of lemon trees so you must try the Pomada!! This is the only hotel my husband and I have returned to again in our travels and I hope one day that I can muster the courage again to go as I have really bad vertigo!!More
Fabulous, but pool cold.
Stayed here whilst in Italy for a friends wedding. Fabulous hotel and a great break. Pool was quite cold though. Lunch by the pool is a must but make sure you only order a club sandwich if you're hungry. It's an epic. More

I have just returned from S'Agata, near Sorrento where I stayed at the Hotel Jaccorino. The hotel is situated above Sorrento on a mountain about 6 km from Sorrento. Daily (except Sunday) a courtesy bus provided at 8.30, 9.30, 12.30 and 17.00 to Sorrento 11.30,13.00, 17.30 and 18.30 return to hotel these trips are free of charge. A special evening run at 20.30 returning 23.30 min 6 people at 6 euro each or single person at 36 euro. The hotel is pleasant enough regarding reception, large lounge area, terrace bar, all clean and tidy, one small lift to 3 floors for the bedrooms, another lift for reception, restaurant and hotel entrance. My bedroom was located on the top floor with Bay of Naples view, not standard but supplement charged. Although functional, plenty of storage space, was not spacious and needed updating. My room had air con at a hefty 15 euro per day if used. Not all bedrooms have this facility. Free safe in room, telephone and flat screen TV with Sky but all programs are in Italian or need viewing card for Sky box. Bathroom clean with bath a shower combined, I understand that some rooms have shower only. Bath foam and shampoo and soap supplied, together with hairdryer. Again this room is dated and in need refurbishment. The hotel seems to cater for touring coach parties, who stay for a limited time then move on, this requires a lot of people and luggage movement, some very early in the morning with the associated banging of doors, loud voices and luggage movement on tiled floors. The restaurant opens from 7.00 am for breakfast, which is plentiful and as a buffet you serve yourself, mostly continental. Dinner has two sittings 19.00 and 20.00, as I elected the first sitting my experience was not good, no allotted table, you could be and were frequently moved tables for their convenience, not yours. A choice of dishes per day from the menu, the menu being hurriedly placed at your table as soon as you arrived. Everything from then on was rushed, while eating my salad, the first course was pushed onto the table, Very small interval, then main course arrives followed rapidly by the serve yourself desert. This together with a very crowded dining room most evenings was not conducive to a relaxed dining atmosphere in Sorrento from a 4 star hotel. The only real star as far as I was concerned was the bar man from the terrace bar, he was professional in every way, efficient, polite, friendly and hospitable. exactly what I would expect from a 4 star hotel. The terrace has seating inside and out where lunch can be served. The pool is very clean, with various sun beds and chairs surrounding the pool. Although my impression of the hotel was not bad, it was not 4 star.More

Michael from Hotel Jaccarino is a godsend!
This is a review to praise Michael, the waiter from Hotel Jaccarino. He was our server during the stay at the Jaccarino, and his attention to detail and desire to please made him the best part fo our vacation. He was attentive when tableside, suggested various dishes and drinks to try, and helped my wife plan a surprise dinner for our anniversary. Michael mentioned he had worked at the Jaccarino since he was 12 and is now the head waiter. His dedication and loyalty to his employer and clients makes him a true asset.More
