We booked on the basis of all the great reviews of the Due Golfi and yes we would agree that it is exceptionally clean, the service is very good and the views are superb, there were some downsides. The rooms facing the road were very noisy at night if you left the windows open and we also found the beds were too hard. We would have preferred to see much more fresh fruit, rather than tinned fruit at breakfast, although generally the range of choice was quite good. The evening meal varied in quality, with some excellent dishes, but others lacking in flavour. The gala dinner, however, was simple food, beautifully presented and cooked and we would have wished for this quality all through the week. The wine on offer was very good and not overly expensive.
On balance, we would have been better in Sorrento, as we found there was little entertainment and few facilities in the hotel, so we had to go out every day. We made a lot of use of the shuttle bus and public transport, but the buses passing the hotel were often full and didn't always stop.
One excellent, good value restaurant that we found was the Chanticlere between the cathedral and the Piazza Tasso down the via S M Pieta. Our group of six adults had a two course meal with wine, and beer for 62 Euros.
