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.

This is our favourite go to place as a couple and as a family! We were married in Sorrento in 2013 and stayed with the President for a week and were so happy with the hotel and staff from the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we returned along with our 2 young teenagers again in 2015, both of whom love it there. Our third visit in 2017 we had an new arrival of only 3 months old and they could not be more accommodating! This is our favourite bolt hole for many reasons but ultimately it is consistently the staff that are so welcoming and go above and beyond to make sure we have such an amazing experience every time. We cannot wait to be back in the next year or so with 2 with our little one and possible the teenagers.
The President is within walking distance down, up is a little harder with the heat but is doable but the shuttle buses are so frequent with a friendly Tony at the helm. Carla and team on reception are there with a welcome smile each day along with friendly lower bar and lounge. Maitre d Antonino welcomes you into the restaurant for breakfast and even if you are not a morning person it would be hard not to smile with the team in there. Down at the swimming pool, more happy staff, another Antonino lol and up at the rooftop bar with thee most spectacular view you will find Carmine, who is such a gentleman. Each and every member of staff make a difference and we are always happy to see the same smiling faces on each return visit. Continuity, speaks volumes for the hotel itself.
I would highly recommend booking when the festival takes place in July as the firework display is out of this world from that height, you would not regret it!

Had a really fantastic week here. The room was spacious and the views were absolutely stunning (Although we paid quite a bit extra for a room with a view, but it was worth every penny). The hotel staff were really good and the breakfasts and evening meals were excellent. We went with Tui and would highly reccomend it. The only downside was the distance from the airport.
