Free Day at Sorrento

A travel blog entry by joyf

At last a free day in Sorrento to relax and chill out after a hectic 6 weeks. We slept in, had a late breakfast, boys swam in the pool whilst I sat updating my blog admiring the beautiful view overlooking the Bay of Naples & Mt Vesuvius. Except for the flies, I would stay here until the coach picks us up at 3.15pm today. We headed into the town …

Bus Along the Amalfi Coast

A travel blog entry by alanjgreenhalgh

I chickened out of driving the coast, in favor of the handy and simple bus, which stopped right near the hotel. We found a seat on the right side of the bus for the best views of the coast. The trip was amazing, with views that I will never forget, including the very best, a view of Positano embedded into the mountain overlooking the sea. This view …

A Day in Naples

A travel blog entry by alanjgreenhalgh

Having been to Naples in 1998, I did not have a desire to return, and thought we would go instead to Capri, but when we awoke, I felt that we should see the very famous Archeological Museum, which houses most of the artifacts recovered from Pompeii. We walked to the boat dock which was only about 10 minutes from the hotel for the ferry to Naples. …

Transition from Tourist to Tour Guide

... parents to Da Franco’s- a favorite pizza place of the students in my program. It also happened to be Mardi Gras, so we watched from the town square as children dressed up like it was Halloween and had quite the celebration, throwing confetti and spraying silly string every which way. We finished this evening at Ristorante Tasso with Tsu as our guest of honor- it was of course delicious.

All prepared to go ...

... here last week also though in another class. The teachers have all switched around also, so we have two new ones, they Re quite nice also but speak to us in Italian more... Molto difficile! After class I went for a long walk down the main road trying to burn off some gelato, pasta, and pizza calories but I think they decided to hang around anyway!
Met up with others in the class to go to the Limoncello factory, they grow their own lemons ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Ambasciatori Sorrento

    Fantastic!

    from

    Spectacular hotel, splendid service, and magnificent view of the coast

    ¡Comida divina!

    from

    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!

    ¡Fantástico!

    from

    Hotel espectacular, servicio espléndido y unas vistas magníficas a la costa.

    Food to die for!

    from

    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?

    A Definite 5 star!

    from

    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.

    Excellent Ambasciatori

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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'hà 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.
