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. 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. Pool towels are available.
Overlooking the Gulf of Naples and Vesuvius, this restaurant offers traditional Sorrentine and Mediterranean specialities. The excellent quality of the products, ably prepared by our Chef, will delight even the most demanding palate. Continental buffet breakfast weekly gala dinner.
These twin rooms have a traditional décor and furnishings and come with a balcony. They sleep two with twin beds. There's a TV and air-con is available at a charge. From May 2016, the air-con will be free.
We are a young couple and stayed here 2 weeks ago for 5 nights. A few uncertain reviews read before our holiday... However, ignore any negativity! This hotel is a little gem in the hills.
As long as you know what you have booked you will have no complaints!
It's outside of Sorrento, but we preferred this. There is a small but lovely little village right out the back of the hotel with places to have dinner, have a drink and eat gelato. This is all we needed.
Reliable useful local bus service into surrounding towns, as well as the hotel offering a shuttle bus into Sorrento, free by day and a small charge by night.
Dinner is okay, I am very fussy and even I found things to eat when we did eat in. We ate out a few nights though as we don't like to experience variety.
The hotel was clean and comfy. Classic Italian setting inside the hotel and rooms. We booked a sea view, however I did notice some rooms backed onto an alley way, to avoid disappointment in room, book a sea view! The attraction to this hotel is the stunning views. Don't miss out.
All staff friendly and helpful. We booked a trip to Capri through the hotel. Good value for money in comparison to other options. So glad we chose to do this trip.
We got a train to Pompei from Sorrento. Reliable good trains!
All in all, excellent stay. Picturesque views from the hotel. Lovely pool area! Nice staff. I would highly recommend this hotel, we never go to the same place twice, but if we did decide to return, we would stay here again.More

late summer break
travelled from 27.9-4.10.15.lovely hotel in the hills in sant'agata,9km from sorrento.we had room 72 on the 3rd floor and our daughter had room 6 on the 1st floor.rooms are old fashioned but clean.my daughter had a walk in shower and a patio,we had a bath and shower,fridge,and a back facing view.we could have upgraded to a balcony for 50 euros extra a night but decided we were only using the room for sleeping,showering and getting dressed!you can sit on the terrace above the swimming pool and get the same stunning views!
breakfast was buffet style,perfectly adequate if not a little boring after 7 days!there was cereal,toast,croissants,cake,yoghurts,fruit,juice,tea,coffee,eggs,cheese,cold meats,enough to keep one going until lunch!
all our trips were prearranged by omega,capri,amalfi drive,pompei,vesuvius.we also walked down to sorrento,took about an hour(slow walker!),got the bus back.there is a free shuttle bus which you book in advance,or you get the sita bus outside the hotel or outside the petrol station in the village(buy your tickets in the tobacci shop 1st).
dinner was ok and plenty,again after 7 nights it does get a little boring,there is enough choice,meat,veggie,pasta,fish.i prefer bed and breakfast but our package included dinner,so we explored different restaurants at lunch time instead.
all in all a wonderful holiday,even my 17 year daughter had a good time!
tip-if you like entertainment in the evening,this isnt the hotel for you!stay in sorrento!there are a few bars in the village also.we went to an opera show at the correale musuem in sorrento.
bath/shower a bit dangerous when you step in and out,would have liked a walk in shower,also we did request 2 rooms together but that wasnt possible.
we requsted 2nd dinner but couldnt get that,so we dined at 7,which worked out better as we were usually very hungry,having been out all day!
a special thanks to laura at reception and nino and his team in the dining room.
we would probably stay in sorrento or ravello in future,more to do.More
We stayed here for 2 weeks in July and had a fabulous holiday. All the staff were very nice and the staff in the restaurant were very kind and good at their jobs. I am wheat intolerant and the waiters and particularly Mr Nino (restaurant manager) were very accommodating. The breakfast was the same every morning, but good quality and plentiful. We were half board and the menu was not repeated at all for the full two weeks.
The hotel was very clean and is in a lovely building set in a wonderful village. If you go out the back of the hotel and walk up a small alleyway, you are straight into Sant' Agata, which we really liked. If you go the opposite way in the alleyway and head down, you will eventually arrive in Sorrento. Its a lovely walk and about a 20 minute fast pace walk or a 45 minute stroll downhill, but be aware, it is continuously steep and can be hard going on your knees. You can use the hotel bus to travel free down into Sorrento, or catch a bus in Sant' Agata or catch one straight outside of the hotel, but for public buses, you need to buy the tickets before you get on the bus. These are bought from the tobacconist in Sant' Agata but as they have no date on them, we bulk bought them at the beginning of our holiday. If you catch the bus from the village, it's likely to be 40 minutes (Sorrento via Massa). If you catch the one outside the hotel its only 20 minutes. Both buses are know as Sita buses.
The pool is very clean and a good size with lovely views over Sorrento, Naples and Mount Vesuvius. We always managed to get a sunbed but on one occasion we only got 3 sunbeds for four of us, but this was not a problem. The only negative comment is I think the pool side toilets need to be check more often on some days to maintain the hotels high standard of hygiene.
Being high up gives the most wonderful breeze which we were very grateful for as the temperatures were in the high 30's all the time.
Our room was lovely. Having researched on Trip advisor I booked a sea view, balcony room for 2 adults, 2 children. Our room was number 11 and it was spacious and had a large balcony with amazing views. We did speak to some visitors who were not as pleased with their rooms, but we can only comment on ours. We also booked direct with the hotel as they often have offers on and we saved a considerable amount.
Would we stay here again?? Yes, we definitely would.More
