... noticed that there were no other boats on the stretch that had been teeming with ships on the way out. We found out later that they had even suspended ferry service that afternoon. On the plus side though, I did see a dolphin jump completely out of the water during the chaos. At first I thought it might have been a near death hallucination but then I saw him again and I'm fairly certain he was real.
As we rounded the final corner into the calm water of Sorrento ...
... the city for a while with them. We then walked along the river and up to Michaelangelo Plaza for a few sunset drinks with a view of the whole of Florence. The next day we had a walk around the silver and leather markets, saw the cathedral and a few other nice plazas in the city. It got super hot in the afternoon so we went ...
Today, we took a boat cruise around the Island of Capri. The cruise started at 10am and we were very excited, bathing suits on and towels in hand, until the nice gentleman at the cruise meeting point informed us that 10-12 sharks had been seen in the area around Capri so the snorkeling points were closed. Well.... the excitement turned into a bit of panic for the kids, but we decided that staying in the boat on an amazingly ...
... sailed past Positano, we didn't dock there because it is expensive to park the boat. We continued on past Amalfi as well and parked the boat at town next to Amalfi called Atrani. We had lunch which for Mel and I was a local style pasta which I can't remember what it was called, I'll have to email Geronimo, but it was home made in an amazing sauce with zucchini. It was divine. I just don't know how I will live without this food.
We then ...
... After 1 ½ hours we finally found the big green door – there was no sign up, simply a buzzer with the hotel name, not the one advertised on the internet another name all together! What a mess! The hotel may have been hard to find but it definitely was nice – after 24 nights of sleeping under canvas it is nice to have a room with your own bathroom and sitting room.
We finally headed to the airport – 2 hours ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Mediterraneo Sorrento Sant'Agnello
Most beautiful place ever !!!!
I went there summer of 2004 and i had an amazing time especially with the staff form the bar ... the best thing to do is to rent a room with view on the sea ( the sunset is beautiful) i would never forget that place !
i enjoyed so much that im going back summer 2005 ... i can't wait
We stayed in this hotel in september 2004. Hotel is on a small but fairly busy street - front rooms face the bay of Naples - giving spectacular views from upper floors. Food and service are truly wonderful, staff are very friendly and will go out of their way to help. Hotel has a large swimming pool with plenty of sunloungers. Didn't think much of the room we were allocated - though it might suit you if you like small spaces and coordinated standing times. Also it was lovely sharing the "balcony" with the occupants of two other rooms and being able to touch the passing cars and buses was an added bonus.
Nice place, but you'll have to hike to town
Hotel Mediterraneo is a lovely hotel with a tropical feel. Our room was pleasant with a great view of the coast. The restaurant was a nice setting for breakfast, and they also offer nice (but somewhat pricey) fixed price dinners. It's a 20-minute walk to Sorrento, and there are not many restaurants and shops nearby. Although they have a shuttle service that gets you about half-way to the town center, it does not run that frequently. The good news is that it's a pleasant walk, but next time I'll stay in Sorrento.
An okay experience
My husband and I stayed at the Mediterraneo in mid Sept. 2004. We had a pleasant enough experience. It is more like a three star than a four star hotel. The front desk staff were very friendly, courteous and helpful. The room was small, but clean and well maintained. However, the hotel was a good distance from Sorrento and we either had to take the hotel shuttle (limited schedule) or the local bus. I was a bit disappointed though, with our "seaview" room. It was one of a few without a balcony. It was in a corner, back from the front of the building and only had a pretty distant view of the sea. So keep in mind reserving a seaview room does not guarantee a spectacular view as many of the reviews suggest.
This was simply a wonderful hotel. As the other reviews state, it sits on the cliff overlooking a quite magnificent view over the bay. It is an easy 10 min walk to Sant Agnello and about 30 min walk to Sorrento. However, the courtesy bus and local buses are there if needed.
Very good hotel, amazing view
Very nice hotel, amazing location, overlooking the sea on the cliff.
Very nice staff, extremely helpful, trying there best to please the client.
Breakfast room on the 5th floor with 180º seaview. Large rooms ( we took a triple with an extra bed and it was confortable) with balcony to the sea. Nice pool with just one drawback:closes at 7 p.m. which in our opinion didn't make sense.
Private solarium at the beach even though a bit crowded.
An excelent choice overall.
We recently spent a delightful 4 days at the Mediterraneo Hotel in Sorrento Italy.
I stayed at the Mediterraneo in June 2004. Exceptionally clean and comfortable rooms. The hotel has a lovely pool and provides a wonderful buffet breakfast. The hotel is away from the noisy central part of town - which is nice because you are not subjected to the sound of vespas filing up and down the main avenue. I would certainly stay here again.
I wanted to stay. Marble floors, excellant service, walk into your room and there are french doors with shutters opening on a balcony with a view of the mediterranain.
We stayed two years ago at this hotel, last year we were hosted in an other hotel in Sorrento (5star). But at the end we dit prefer the hotel mediteranneo because of the very good price-quality factor. The rooms are small but well furnished, avoid to take one on the road, because of the noice. Three times per week there was a music performance till 01.00. The rooms are well kept. The food is not execptional but of good quality, the waiters friendly and the maitre d'hötel knows his job.The terrace overlooking the bay is very small, dinner is never serverd there, this was a bit misleading. You can take the bus just across the hotel, (tickets can be bought at the reception) wich reach the centre in 5 minutes of sorrento. The pool and premisses are ok and well cleaned. The public is mainly composed of older British couples.
