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.

... the Sorrento Peninsula and the entire Island. After 3 hours on the island, we reboarded our vessel and cruised back to Sorrento, which took just over an hour.
Rough seas had apparently seen the last days of boat tours cancelled, so we were really lucky to have calm seas and perfect weather.
A fabulous day, we just didn't want to end.
Home to shower and pack then out for our final dinner.....Salute Sorrento !!!!
... garden of lemon trees that eventually led us to a lemoncello factory. We had one more lemon gelato for the road and I couldn't resist a bottle of lemoncello to take for our journey to Matera (NB: mum I took your warning about the deadly lemoncello hangover- we are drinking it slowly, there's still plenty left for Sail Croatia). Matera is the home of the sassi* - a really indescribable (though in saying that - I will try) village of cave dwellings. *[sassi translates to rocks in ...
We got on board the public bus from Sorrento bound for the Amalfi Coast. Unfortunately for us we had standing room only- but in the end it was pretty cool, holding on like crazy as the bus wound around the narrow road. Standing near the middle doors also meant we had a great view out as the bus meandered the coastline and struggled its way past other buses and vehicles - seriously within millimetres ...
... even boarding the plane! Maybe this is a sign of me getting wiser as otherwise we would have no memories of this special occasion other than those in our minds! Hopefully I will figure out how I attach these to the blog too! I am writing this at the second attempt as the iPhone died mid blog first time and I'm pretty sure it has deleted it! For this first entry I have exciting photos of the flight times and shots out the plane windows, as ...
... the town was destroyed and looked very old. We could also see Vesuvius from Pompei. On Friday we took a ferry to an island called Anacapri. It is famous for a cave in the water that is called the Blue Grotto. We went inside the Blue Grotto and the water was light blue because of the special rocks that the sun reflects off. On Saturday we dropped off gran at the station and drove to Naples Central Station where we take the train to Rome. ...
