Travel Blogs from Sorrento
The flight from SF to Toronto was smooth. We had a three hour layover in Toronto. So we headed to the bar for a couple of beers and some dinner. Our itinerary for the next flight said that we would only get breakfast on the flight, so we ate a big meal. After we boarded the plane, they said that dinner would be served in about an hour. Oh well, we …
We woke up bright and early this morning to go back to Rome and the end of our tour. 4.30 alarm call is not fun! Some of the group had left through the night so there were only eighteen of us left. It was a long drive but we arrived at Fumicino in time to drop off most at the airport. Then there were only four of us left for the rest of the way. We arrived at romanico hotel,where ...
... and cafés, but despite the better stretch of beach I would actually say I found Amalfi more charming. Late in the afternoon we headed back to Sorrento- with a very angry bus driver at the helm (although I think you'd just about have to be on the brink of a nervous breakdown driving this route day in day out!). On the way back from Positano Bernard was saying how amazing it was that we hadn't seen ...
... white grotto) and back to Marina Grande (main port)
The blue grotto was amazing, we swapped into little rowing boats that held three people (plus the Captain) a nod entered a small cave opening. We had to lie down in the bottom of the boat as the roof entrance was very low !! Once inside there was a large cave of which the entire water was a deep blue (from the sunlight of outside)
... eyes half open and very, very low expectations. But as I shook Giovanna's hand as he welcomed us, and then opened up the windows of our room to the crowded street below us, I felt a surge of energy; a scene straight out of Roman Holiday unfolding before me, but I was in it. We had been traveling for 20 hours at that point, but I felt like I just woke up from a 10 hour rest. It took all of 10 minutes of being in Italy before I was reminded why we love to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel La Badia Sorrento
Not for those who expect happy staff!
We stayed at this hotel last year. The staff are miserable, the food is grim and the rooms are tiny. I definitely would not recommend this hotel to anyone. The hotel is also set in the middle of nowhere. There is a short cut to the town but this is only usable during the day due to the lack of any lights hightlighting the shear drops!
I have just returned home after spending eight days in Sorrento, staying at the Hotel La Badia. The hotel is family owned and from arriving all guests were made to feel at home by all members of the family who were in attendance on reception duty and in the bar. The menu in the restaurant had plenty of choices and staff were happy to provide an alternative meal if required. Evening meals were a pleasure with good food and pleasant company. The Gala evening at the end of the week was a great idea and all guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
Hotel situation gives wonderful view over Bay of Sorrento.
Rooms well furnished and cleanliness of high atandard.
Food excellent. Situation from town overcome by short downhill walk
of approx. ten minutes. Staff very helpful and friendly. I would have
no hesitation on returning for future holidayJohn
My wife and I enjoyed our week at La Badia and cannot understand the poor reports made by some people. Our bedroom was large and airy and very clean, as was the bathroom. OK, the towels were different, but caused no problems whatsoever. Breakfast was a little basic but the evening meals were varied, well cooked and well presented. The staff were particularly attentive and friendly, which enhanced the holiday.
We were glad that we were a little out-of-town and away from the frenetic centre of Sorrento. Dining on the terrace watching the sun go down over the sea was particularly enjoyable. The walk into town would only be a problem to those with walking difficulties. We are in our 60's and found it quite easy. We would not hesitate to return to La Badia.
La Badia our Haven in Sorrento
This is our 5th time to La Badia. We enjoy the friendly family run hotel and it feels like we are visiting friends when we return. Indeed, we often meet others, who like us return to the relaxed atmosphere of La Badia.
The hotel is clean and well maintained. You could not find better views of the bay of Naples and Vesuvius anywhere. However in my opinion it is not suitable for children or people with mobility problems, due to the nature of the steep walk to and from Sorrento Town. The last local bus is 10pm from Sorrento. We tend to book room only and eat in Sorrento, however when we have had a busy day we do eat in the hotel and the food is good but with a limited menu - the sunset from the terrace while you are eating makes up for this!!
A friendly family run hotel with views from Ist & 2nd floor bedrooms to remember on a cold winter morning. The staff were efficient and friendly
and the food served in the dining room overlooking the harbour was typically Italian
The location is very quiet on the outskirts of town with a steep and challenging 15 minute walk down into town although a free taxi service is available in the evening both ways.
The hotel is extensively used by Riviera Travel who have an Exelent tour manager based at the hotel who made every guest feel very special.
Our bedroom on the 2nd floor was spotlessy clean and the linen seemed to be changed every day. The air-conditioning was very efficient. This is a hotel that we would be happy to use again.
At no additional charge you may find as we did a dead spider complete with web, dust undisturbed since monastery days, largest tea towels I have ever seen then I realised they were bath towels (or should that be bath sheets!).
Lovely small friendly hotel
We have just spent a weeks holiday at the Hotel La Badia in Sorrento. It is just out of the town with lovely views across the Bay of Naples. There is a walk way down to the town which takes about 15/20 mins and is lit at night. The Hotel is small, clean and the staff are very friendly. The food was good and on our last evening there we had what the staff described as a Gala Dinner which was a more Italian type meal with live music and champagne. Even though we had quite changeable weather we had a lovely time and would certainly recommend this hotel - it was lovely.
We booked a week at La Badia based on a guide book and looking at their website, but some things can be misleading.
Food in this hotel was terrible, and the menu choices were extremely
limited. We got the distinct
impression that all the food was of budget cheap quality. The hotel
staff were unfriendly and
unhelpful. All the bedrooms varied tremendously in size and quality.
The location of the hotel meant
that it was tucked away on its own outside of Sorrento itself (I found
it to be a rather lonely
location). Our travel operator advertised that there was a short cut
into town. We would not
recommend that this should be used at night time due to the lack of
lighting and sheer drops.
Perhaps we experienced a bad week but I would advise you to think
before you book!
