Myself and my partner spent 7 nights here in April/May (we were so lucky with the weather, mid 20s every day!) and I can only reiterate what other people have said about the views this hotel offers, especially from the lovely pool area which was always clean and tidy. Don't let its location on a hillside put you off as the shuttle bus runs very frequently and the town centre is only a 25 minute walk away.
The food served in the hotel was good, in the evening you get 4 choices per course and the same dish was never offered twice throughout our stay. You must venture into the town at least once though to experience the Piazza Tasso at night, so lively, great for a nights people watching! Breakfast could have had a bit more variety, but there was still enough on offer to set you up for the day. Again, compliments to Giuseppe and his waiting team who were wonderful.
When we checked in, having booked a standard room, we were told we would be given a nicer room which was lovely to hear. The room we were given had a side view (on the opposite side to the entrance) so we could see the sea off to one side. It was however very small and the bathroom even smaller! I would therefore suggest paying the extra to secure a good room as I'm sure some people would have found it a tad cramped (particularly the bathroom). The bed was, however, lovely and comfy and it was always cleaned very well.
We would perhaps suggest offering some more evening entertainment to really make this a great hotel, there was a musician there for one of the nights we were there, but other than that there was not a lot to do after dinner. Also, another English channel other than World News or CNN would be greatly appreciated for during the time you spend in your room before dinner.
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed out trip to Sorrento and this hotel was a great base for exploring the area.
Try and get a sea, over the main entrance or above the pool.

Dear Mrs/Mr C J,

Thank you for posting a review on tripadvisor.
I hope to have the chance to welcome you again to our hotel, maybe in a room with a larger bathroom, as next year we will continue to renew our standards.
We will keep your suggestions in mind for the season.
Have a nice day,
