About the location
From its prime clifftop position, Sorrento has wide-angle views across the Bay of Naples to Mount Vesuvius. Palms and citrus groves cluster around grand villas and elegant hotels, and along the spaghetti-thin lanes of the old town you’ll find tiny trattorias and a generous helping of shops (bottles of limoncello, brightly painted ceramics and bespoke sandals are all must-buys). The main square, Piazza Tasso, is the place to head for a morning espresso, while the waterfront Marina Grande is the ideal spot for a dinner of freshly netted seafood. Sorrento’s location also makes it the perfect springboard for exploring more of the Neapolitan Riviera. Amalfi Coast towns like Positano and Ravello are in easy reach, as are the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Hop on a boat, meanwhile, and you can skim over to the islands of Capri and Ischia.
1 hour 30 minutes from Naples airport.

Booked a Side Sea View Room via Jet2Holidays - it was breathtaking (room 707) and the room was very spacious with the BEST bed we've ever slept in; in fact we went mattress hunting the minute we we're home.
Check-in was quick and easy, bags were taken up to our rooms whilst we had a mooch around the lovely hotel, room aircon had already chilled our room ready for our arrival, breathtaking view of Vesuvius (before the forest fires kicked off!), tea & coffee making facilities in the room, loaded minibar, fresh towels daily, fresh bedding daily, massive wardrobe space with plenty of hangers, safe with a charging point inside the safe for your gadgets.
Breakfast looks so inviting and colourful but the hot section was boring come day 3 as it was the same everyday - would be nice if frankfurters could've been swapped for pork sausages every now and then, if streaky bacon could???ve been swapped for back bacon now and then, some cooked mushrooms to add to the mix - I did like that the chef made you scrambled egg, fried egg, omelette fresh on the spot but no chance of a poached egg I'm afraid.
Pool and Beach opening times could do with being 8am-8pm (think they were 9am-6:30pm) and the lift button down to the Beach simply didn't work outside of those hours and you'd have hotel guests sat in beachwear in the foyer waiting for that lift button to work and then the minute it did there were queues at the lift and you can only fit 5 skinny adults/children in it. A bit cattle market like and not very 5 star along with the guy that came down to breakfast in his tartan pyjamas every single day with bad bedhead - upon check-out we overheard a lady complaining about this guy and the Hotel Manager straight away marched down to the breakfast room and told the Restaurant Manager to deal with him - we didn't see the outcome as our coach transfer had arrived but he was approaching the guy as we left.
Pool & Beach Bars were reasonably priced and we dined in a couple of times and the chateaubriand steak was to die for on the A La Carte evening menu - reserve yourself an outside balcony table for 7:45pm and watch the beautiful sunset whilst you dine in style. Was pricy but we did this on our last night as a treat but the service and food was amazing. Annoyingly you don't ever seem to get offered drinks on the hotel grounds, even when you're dining; you have to ask and a different waiter comes over and deals with your drinks order and you???re forever having to sign the order pads and write your room number down.
Outstanding, would return again, definitely looks the nicest hotel on that coastline as we popped into other hotels to be nosy.

This hotel is a luxurious oasis located a close walking distance from the center of Sorrento. The sunsets looking out over the cliffs would be hard to top and we enjoyed hanging out in the garden by the pool as well as down on the "beach" accessed by an elevator. The staff was very nice and the hotel was in great condition - clean, comfortable and spacious. We paid for the included breakfast and were not disappointed.
