My husband, his sister and her husband, and I stayed here for a week in late September. It will always be one of our favorite vacations. The staff (Sabrina, Nello, Concetta, and the manager) were all so warm and helpful. The location was breathtaking. Our room was on the top floor and, although smaller than our sister???s, had the most amazing view of the Bay of Naples and Mt Vesuvius. The beds in the larger rooms faced into the room while the bed in our smaller room faced out the balcony. Any time I woke up, I could see the bay and Naples twinkling on the other side. The breakfasts were exceptional. Fresh OJ, coffee, omelets made to order, meats, cheeses, fruit, and so many pastries! The gardens, terrace, pool, and ocean deck were all exquisitely maintained. The location is a short walk to the center of Sorrento and all the restaurants and shops. The staff arranged the day trips we took to Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius and cruise down the Amalfi Coast as well as our transfer to and from the Naples airport. I cannot recommend this any higher. It was fabulous!
