I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Grand Hotel Royal in Sorrento. This is the most beautiful, elegant hotel in Sorrento (we have stayed at many in the area). From the moment you walk in and register, the staff is exceptional - warm, inviting, and professional. And from that moment on, they all know your name. The rooms are magnificent - I booked waterfront for myself and one for my sister-in-law. She told me that she felt like a princess while there. The terraces are large and the views are amazing. The location is a 2 minute walk to Tasso Square.
Each evening before dinner we went downstairs to the bar for aperitivo. We chose to sit outside so we could enjoy a view of the grounds and the bay. Staff, once again, excelled. One waiter heard me tell my sister-in-law that I was a bit chilly, so suddenly the outside heater was lit. I asked him about the mosquitoes that late in the season and suddenly 5 citronella candles appeared.
The breakfast buffet was incredible. Rows of scrumptious food, accommodating diverse national preferences. From Italian pastries, charcuterie boards, to American bacon, eggs, and waffles, the food was plentiful and delicious.
The spa is fantastic. I availed myself of a deep tissue massage and could not have been happier. I was so relaxed after the massage that I could barely pull myself to the bar for a prosecco :)
I could go on and on, but I think you get the drift. This is a most magical place.
