We are on our honeymoon and the hotel moved us to a room with a sea view which was nice and a big plus point. The breakfast was nice given they weren't offering buffet i guess due to low numbers staying in the hotel during covid they allowed us to order a nice selection from the menu.
We didn't use the gym or spa etc but the hotel itself is maintained well inside and out with nice decor and furniture in rooms and communal areas.
We had one meal in the evening which was nice in the setting of the hotel however the food we had outside the hotel in local restaurants was better
When we arrived we were informed that the car could not be parked outside on the driveway despite there being plenty of space and that we would have to pay 24euros per night to store the car. This seems extortionate and was no more competitive than parking my car in another private car park in sorrento which seemed unfair given how much we were paying to stay in the hotel. I have not seen this in any luxury hotel i have stayed in before, if it isn't free its usually cheaper than parking outside the hotel.
What really disappointed us was on the last day when we checked out i asked them to get the car whilst we got our bags etc, was asked did we use the minibar and confirmed we had not used anything other than complimentary water, then as we went to get in the car the porter had locked the car and walked away. As i went back into the hotel the porter re-appeared from the lift with my car keys and was informing the hotel reception that we had apparently taken chocolate and orange juice from the minibar.
I'm not sure whether its because we are a young couple or not but certainly didn't leave me with a good impression. It felt like i was checking out of the Holiday Inn on a boys weekend (although have had better checkouts there). Hopefully the hotel can take this feedback constructively
