I do not have anything I want to say about Naples. We walked over to the oldest part of Naples, as this is one of the main tourist places and not to be missed, apparently, and it was disgusting, loud, and full of mafia looking people and black as night Africans, that get up in your business. Get me out of ...
... from the crater is analysed, various crater lines from lava ash deposits and much more but I can't remember!!! The views from up there were absolutely breathtaking. We walked further around to actually see the steam coming from the side of the volcano before making our way back down to the four wheel drive bus. I am soo gald we did this tour and I am also glad I did not know what was involved as I probably wouldn't have gone because of the steep climb to the top. We ...
... about how awesome it was. After that I spent the rest of my time jumping from the smaller cliffs with my friends. After that they took us to a place to go cave swimming. Before we got off the boat they told us if we weren't that strong of swimmers we might struggle with the current. My friends and I watched a few people through first and they looked fine so we figured we would give it a shot. Swimming into the cave was pretty easy. The current carried you through pretty easily and ...
... bit like the Greek islands or Ibiza old town. Yes, it is busy and full of tourists, but while you accept that for what it is then it is very enjoyable, if culturally vapid. What you can see are lovely food shops (I think you know what I like by now!) this time selling everything Lemon, the local product. Lemon soaps, lemon sweets, lemon biscuits and of course Limoncello! There is even lemon pasta! (Yes I will get some). Now ...
... this hostel as we were able to book all our accommodation for the rest of our trip which had been hanging over our heads for a while. We had dinner at the hostel and a few beers before we hit the sack. In the morning we had jacked up a 12 person boat cruise on and around the island of Capri for €75 each. It was breaking the bank a little but really the only way to do it. We got picked up at 9am and drove down to the docks where we got on our mint boat and set off for the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Riviera Sorrento
Good hotel, unlucky with the room
Stayed in the hotel for a week, really liked it. Stunning views. Nice rooms. Good location - not central but useful when you drive into Sorrento from Naples, since it lets you avoid having to negotiate your way through the town.
Two things let us down. The breakfast was very dull and the coffee the worst I had in Italy. Secondly, our room (large and bright) was right underneath the breakfast hall, and with those tiled floors, as one would guess, you can hear every step, every chair movement above you. And that every morning as the breakfast starts at 7 a.m.
Wonderful staff who really went out of their way to help satisfy a very fussy eater. Amazing views and lovely bright rooms, excellently maintained. The pool and beach area were lovely too. Full of English tourists but being one myself I didn't let that bother me!
Un personal maravilloso que hizo todo lo posible por satisfacer a una persona quisquillosa con la comida. Vistas impresionantes y habitaciones hermosas, luminosas y bien mantenidas. El área de la piscina y de la playa era hermosa también. Lleno de turistas ingleses pero, siendo uno de ellos, no dejé que eso me molestara.
Vista y personal fabulosos
Me quedé en el GHR dos días con mi familia.
Me encantaron la vista, el personal y las habitaciones (501 y 502). Creo que la piscina y el embarcadero son excelentes. Definitivamente volvería y lo recomendaría.
Fabulous View and staff
I stayed at the GHR for two days with my family.
L-O-V-E-D the view, the staff and the rooms (501 e 502). I think that the pool and the pier are excelent and would surely come back and recommend.
Loved the riveria
Excellent hotel very clean and tidy. Caters for its guests very well. Pity about the yanks.
Great View - Small Rooms
My wife and I stayed three days in the Grand Hotel Riviera. The rooms are typical small European size, but clean and with great views. No complaints about the beds or furnishings. The bathrooms did not have wash clothes or kleenex. This is large hotel with a great lobby. The breakfast included was satifactory. It is about a 10 minute walk into downtown Serrento.
Ok, but not great
The service was great - the staff was very pleasant and helpful. Also has great views and a nice pier for sunning with a section for swimming in the sea. The rooms are pretty basic but clean. It appeared that the hotel caters very much to the British version of the tacky tourist who wants a watered down version of Italy. The food was more on the level of the Olive Garden but the staff does have good recommendations if you want the real thing.
Lovely hotel, superb views, very friendly staff
Stayed in Grand Riviera for a week after being in Rome and Venice (see reviews). Nice hotel, our room (133) had superb views over the bay of Naples out to sea, absolutely fantastic. Hotel had great facilities, loved the pool. Buffet breakfasts good, only stayed on b&b basis so don't know about the dinners. Staff were very friendly and went out of the way to do anything for you laying on taxis, arranging trips, any problems with rooms, facilities etc, airport transfers. If you are looking for a relaxing hotel with superb views and don't mind a nice walk to the town centre then I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this!
An extremely pleasant hotel, in an ideal location overlooking the bay of Naples and with excellent facilities.....I thoroughly recommend it.
