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.

Not too early a start but after breakfast we set off for the walk to the port and to catch the hydrofoil for the 20 minute trip to Capri.
It does seem strange that you get a nice level walk into town and then have to drop the 50 metres down to the port and sea level. We would not have liked to have been the early settlers and builders who …
Today we headed down to Sorrento where we are going to be staying for a couple of nights to visit Capri and drive the Amalfi coast - unfortunately in the Golf and not a Ferrari!
We managed to get a deal by going to the Hotel directly and it was in a great position on the cliff top, with a stunning view across the Bay of Naples and the …

Next stop the Amalfi Coast.We had a five hour drive ahead of us, had eaten very little for breakfast and it was already morning tea time. Armed with our resolution (after yesterday's debacle) not to let the troops get hungry we stopped at the first roadhouse. We had left some enquiries re: accommodation in ...
... the company and roving musicians more than made up for a forgettable meal. Rusty was on his phone half the time, managing his explosive case defending one of his clients. He is a staunch defender of any client he takes on, and having been one of those clients in the past (when I ran Identigene), I appreciate his fervor and passion.
The next morning, the Goodners were up and off to Villa Murat, just outside of Massa Lubrense. I had thought we were staying ...
... the Romans in 80BC. 160 years later the city was believed to have a population of 11,000 and had evolved to have its own complex water system, amphitheatre, gym and brothel thanks to the Romans. Pompeii is not far from Mount Vesuvius, a large volcano. In 79AD Mount Vesuvius erupted and covered Pompeii in 4-6m of ash. The city was then lost for 1,500 years, simply disappeared, with no one realising it was gone. The initial rediscovery was in 1599, but substantially more in 1748 ...
