“Truly a grand hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2011

Stayed 2 nights and enjoyed the whole experience. Hotel is beautifully maintained and service level was excellent at front desk and in restaurant and bar. Meals were an occasion with lots of good menu choices and extensive wine list at reasonable prices.
Hotel has shuttle bus to town & back. A great base for day trip to Isle of Capri, Pompeii and old town core of Naples.

Room Tip: Ask for room facing Sorrento and sea.

This is a magnificant structure filled with ceramic tiles and marble, with outstanding views of the bay. Their shuttle service is on time and fairly frequent. Also, there is a SITA bus stop that goes to the train/bus station early, so you can use it to catch the SITA bus along the Amalfi coast for an excellent 11 euro all day trip. We used the hotel for trips to Capri, Pompei, and Paestum (and the Amalfi coast). Staff are frienly and knowledgable. The view of the Bay, Naples, Sorrento, Vesuvus, and even nightime fireworks was outstanding. The Balcony is very pleasant, and rooms are large. Art lines the hall ways. When you stay in Sorrento, you have two choices, be down in the city (better for spontaneous walks through Sorrento), but views are not great, or stay in a more remote hillside hotel, with fabulous views of the bay, but need to take the shuttle to Sorrento. Only two complaints that kept it from being a 5: Carpets on the 2nd floor were very dirty and needed replacement, and breakfast was mediocre. Old buns, instant coffee, so-so fruit, and yucky runny eggs were the offering. Oversall, I would stay again, just plan to diet for breakfast. Hotel Aurora Restaurant has excellent Pizza and Pasta at Piazza Tasso.

Room Tip: Pay extra and get the Bay view rooms with a balcony, get some Austi or Champagne from the grocery st...

I reviewed this hotel in 2010 and thought highly of it at that time. And so we returned this year and although most things are the same; very clean, friendly service (except reception), good pool, fabulous view, the big downside was the food. This year there was a noteable increase in package tour guests and dinner in the evening was clearly priced and portioned to what tour companies were willing to pay. It was dreadful, a slice of something with gravy poured over it on the one night we ate there, and we found ourselves paying restaurant prices for catering food.
The hotel is a fair trot from the town and having to make the journey every evening to eat became tiresome, so we wont be going back for a third visit.

Stayed 2 nights in Sorento whilst working our way around Italy. Good location about 5 minutes from the centre of Town. The little hotel bus is great and sticks to the timetable very well.
There is some fantastic little resturants in town that are pretty good value.
In saying that the Hotel resturant is good as well with the staff dressed in full suits and we loved the desert trolly.....
We had an ocean view room which is very nice and the rooms are a good size for Europe and are clean.
The pool area is good with plenty of room for the deck chairs.
We were driving and there was undercover parking for the car.
All in All a good hotel and

Room Tip: Book an ocean view room a bit more money but worth it

We stayed here for a week - originally booked on a B&B basis but were able to upgrade for 75 euros per person for half board which was good value considering the cost of eating out in Sorrento. The evening meals were of a high standard and always big portions. First course was usually buffet style salad with plenty of choices, followed by pasta, then meat or fish course and then a dessert which were served at table. The sunday buffet was amazing with turkey, beef, pork, salmon and sword fish all offered. Throughout the week there were usually 4 choices for each course so always something that appealed. The service in the restaurant was incredibly efficient and friendly.
We had paid extra for a sea view room which was worth it - as we had a great view across the bay to Vesuvius - and experienced some wonderful sunsets from our balcony. The rooms were cleaned daily and we had a reasonable size fridge which enabled us to chill our own wine/beer and keep food in it for lunchtime snacks when necessary.
Plenty to do in Sorrento + Pompeii + Herculanum + Paestrum and the local trains were cheap and easy. Also good ferry service across to Naples for 10 euros each way and only takes 40 minutes. Sorrento is a lively, beautiful place to go - with lots of restaurants - try the one opposite the Christmas shop - really excellent food, good prices and service. The shuttle bus from the hotel was absolutely fine and an essential service if you are to enjoy Sorrento.
