... Ellie. We drove through the vineyard laced hills to find hidden wineries and trattorias in ancient walled cities high atop mountains. We visited the towns of Sienna, Buonconvento, Montalcino, Montalpuciano, and Giaovanni d'Asso tasting wines and educating ourselves for the next time we’re looking at an extensive wine menu. In the evenings Greg would cook up delicious dinners while we drank more wine, played games and sat by the fire.

... seen in 007 and numerous other movies. However, we took them in a mini-bus. The drivers are amazingly crazy here. Sometimes the vehicles and motor bikes have minuscule inches between them. The motorbikes even pass down the middle of the roads. Quite amazing on narrow roads carved out of the mountains for chariots and carts dating back to Roman days. Visited the precious ...

The food was nice but the host was not and his behaviour left a really bad taste, due to his ostentatious flirting with Caitlin. She was fuming about the behaviour of southern Italian men. However it seems to be counterbalanced by the women who are genuinely friendly. I wished I had a tape recorder running a little while later ...

We then met up again and took a little bus up the road to Anacapri. This road was narrow and most of the time was built against the cliff face. Liz did not like it at all ...

Our only route to Sorrento would be by bus back to Salerno, train to Naples, then a small local train to Sorrento. We went ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Ambasciatori Sorrento
Spectacular hotel, splendid service, and magnificent view of the coast
Nos quedamos en el Grand Hotel Ambasciatori el año pasado. Estaba limpio, la piscina era hermosa, el personal siempre era profesional y la comida era espectacular. Sin embargo los postres italianos no eran muy buenos. Sorrento tiene un ambiente agradable y está llena de calles sinuosas bordeadas de tiendas.
¡Lo pasamos fenomenal!
Hotel espectacular, servicio espléndido y unas vistas magníficas a la costa.
Food to die for!
we stayed at the grand hotel ambasciatori last year, it was clean the pool was lovely, the staff were always professional and the food was stunning however italian desserts arent too good!
Also Sorrento has a really nice atmosphere and is full of winding streets lined with shops!
We had a fabulous time!!!!
What can I say about this hotel?
We went there at the end of July 2004 for a 2 week honeymoon, and it was probably the best hotel I have ever stayed in.
The situation of the hotel (about a 10 minute walk from the town centre) was ideal. The views from most parts of the hotel are truly stunning. Having your dinner overlooking the bay of Naples with Mt. Vesuvius as a back drop is nothing short of spectacular!
The service is second to none, the staff are so friendly you'd think you were a local who they'd know all their lives. Visit the "beach" which is a dedicated decking area by the sea and have a chat with Salvatore, a freindly funny guy who runs everything down there.
The decor of the hotel is excellent, the food is superb every night (you don't need to eat out anywhere else), the rooms though not huge are well equipped and very comfortable. Most people we met there have been to the hotel many times before which says it all.
The negatives about the hotel? Well we couldn't find any.
A great place for families or couples alike.
Go there and find out for yourself, I bet you have as good a time as my wife and I did.
A Definite 5 star!
We were there recently on honeymoon. Having read a previous review we had actually tried to change hotel but were unable to. Thank God! From start to finish the welcome and friendliness of the staff was outstanding. Both interior and exterior of the hotel are stunning. The pool is fine, unless you are training for the Olympics! (Some people would find fault with the Garden of Eden). The breakfast was excellent, a great choice every morning. The bedrooms were fine and the views stunning. Ask for a sea-view room on the top 3 floors, it will be worth it. Get B&B so you can eat out every night. We stayed in the 5 star Agavi in Positano which was appalling, do not go there. This is 5 star quality.
Salvatore is the barman/chef/waiter/attendant/entertainer down on the decking. Great fun. Talk to him. Food and drink throughout the hotel were great value.
It was the perfect start to our honeymoon!
Recently spent our Honeymoon in this hotel after the original hotel we had reservations with turned out to be unacceptable.
After our initial bad start to Sorrento the staff at the Ambasciatori went out of their way to help us. The hotel is extremely charming, with a lovely pool and private deck over the sea. The views are spectacular and food and drinks well priced.
It is well situated and a short walk to the centre of Sorrento.
We had an endless supply of clean linen and towels and housekeeping staff were privacy conscious and helpful.
We found it to be excellent value for money and I agree with the previous review that judging by the star ratings of other nearby hotels I think this should be upgraded to a 5*
Should be a 5 Star
Ignore any negatives stated about this hotel. We stayed for three nights at this quiet and completely charming hotel. Even though we were walk-ins (after an early checkout at a poor hotel nearby), we were given a stunning room with a nice sized bathroom and a private sitting balcony with views of the sea for miles. The buffet breakfast included hot dishes; dinner was excellent, reasonably priced, and lacked the hoity-toity of pricier restaurants in town. The staff--from the maids, to the front desk, concierge, and wait-staff in the restaurant and bars could not have been more professional and helpful in meeting our needs. The only negative I could muster: They do accept small tour groups, so if you, like us, don't like to hear/see a party of 25 gathered in the dining room (although they do keep them cloistered in the back of the room, thankfully) you might be slightly bothered as we were. But, a small sacrifice to pay for a very reasonably priced and beautiful hotel.
Excellent holiday hotel
Have just returned from a week's holiday at the Ambasciatori, and must confess was rather dreading it, having read the last review. I needn't have. The whole experience was delightful. The hotel is part of the Manniello Group, which runs three other top-class hotels and a restaurant in the town. It is immaculately operated, with top quality staff. Rooms are extremely comfortable, with quality marble bathrooms. Standards of housekeeping are faultless. The restaurant provides an excellent, varied menu of chiefly Italian and, in some cases, local dishes. There are large marbled lounge areas, all air conditioned. The gardens are large and beautiful, with magnificent views across the Bay of Naples. There is an outside bar and restaurant. The very slight downsides are the size of the pool (only average, so it could get crowded in high summer) and the fact that the hotel is about ten minutes' walk from the centre of town. The Ambasciatori is a superb, first class hotel and I recommend it very highly.
Marvelous hotel, negative attitude of the conciergerie
The hotel is well located, standard rooms do not offer the luxury of the hotel, they are very poor equipped. Swimming pool (small) and gardens are well kept, the bar and wooden terrace are ok, rubish is often floating on the water. The restaurant has a marvelous view, food is British and German orientated, the personal was friendly and experienced, the maitre d'hÃ tel knows his job. The food nearby the pool is of a very poor quality. The barkeeper keeping the bar and premmisses nearby the sea was very friendly. Good breakfast buffet, once a week very nice buffet on the terracces. We did have a very bad experience with the concierge he triple overcharged an taxi-ride ( 190 for 9 km-normale charge was maximum 90) and when we asked our money back a 5 days period discussion followed (obvisously a combine with the taxi-compagny). In general, marvelous settings but no 4 star hotelservice is giving, wich is a regrettable because of the nice surroundings and the approxity of sorrento.
