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.
After 3 nights in this "cave" room (as we affectionately called it) they moved us to a heavenly room with those spectacular views I mentioned earlier.
To summarize - the hotel is lovely, the restaurant is lovely, the food is lovely - (every meal was superb) -everything is very clean, the views are out of this world, and the hotel staff - well you'll want to take them home with you.
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.
Simply Wonderful (and I am usually very critical!)
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.
From when we arrived, the staff were very helpful and helped us with our luggage from the transfer coach (from what we saw, no other hotel did this). This was a good start and the excellent service continued throughout our stay. All staff spoke very good English. The staff by the pool (and pool bar) were very helpful and quick. The staff at reeption were efficient and friendly. The head waiter and his team were superb; the head waiter deserves extra praise.
The residents here were a mixture of German, Dutch, British, American and Italians. It was a good mix.
The food was excellent. Even though we had planned to eat out for some nights, we decided to eat at the hotel every night as the food was so good. There was also a separate vegetarian menu which was fairly extensive. The gala entertainments are bizarre and enjoyable!
The pool area was a great place to while away the day. There were always loungers available, most with umbrellas, at all times of the day. The staff here also provide free towels which was a nice touch. In addition, the food is very tasty from the bar restaurant.
To sum up...go to this hotel. It is a beautiful location with excellent facilities and staff. We had a wonderful holiday and didn't want to leave the hotel. Just go here and see for yourself!
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.
What a wonderful hotel !
We recently spent a delightful 4 days at the Mediterraneo Hotel in Sorrento Italy.
Recommended by our travel agent Maria from AX Travel in Boston, we couldn't have been more delighted in our accomodations.
The hotel is right on the street that is closest to the cliff edge which dominates this part of the coast of the Bay of Naples so thatr the views from the front rooms of the hotel are superb. Our room was directly over the front door and had a small balcony big enough for 2 chairs and a table where we watched the street scene below and sipped a cocktail in the evening before dinner.
The hotel staff were wonderful, all very well versed in English and most accomadating to our needs whether it was in arranging reservations for dinner or scheduling our day trips.
One of the most outstanding features of this venue is theri pool and pool bar/cafe area.
One of the most beautiful pools I have ever seen, blue and white mosaic tile and crystal clear water spotlessly kept by attentive staff.
The landscaping is very lovely, with large palm trees providing just the right amount of shade and many flowering plants everywhere.
The waiters are quick and attentive and bring beverages or food quickly with regional pizzas prepared in a wood fired oven at the end of the bar.
The dining room on the top floor is very large and has large glass doors giving a wonferful view of the Bay and Mt. Vesuvius in the distance. The breakfast buffet is very extensive and has many hot and cold entrees. WE had dinner there several times and found the evening meals to be equally attractive.
One feature not to be missed is the Monday night Festival, with music and dance accompanied by a prix fixe dinner of local delicacies.
The head waiter and his staff is very accomplished and takes care of the diners very well.
Most elegant at all times.
Very peacefull setting and very relaxing . While we were there we met a number of travelers from the UK and USA and in fact Enlgish was the most often heard language.
One evening we heard some noise form our window and looked out to see a wedding party coming down the street on foot , with bride and groom and attendants in the middle of the street coming from the small church a block away, they all waved at us and I took pictures , the scene added a lot to our memories.
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.
Good price quality
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.

... I think it's KM's .... not miles) it was 16 KM's of the most spectacular coastline we have ever seen. As seems to be the recurring theme of this holiday ..... It has to be seen to be believed. Stopped in a little town along the way to visit the Emerald Grotto. We had to walk down a few steps then get in an elevator which went down about 100m's ( quite an engineering feat really as the elevator has been cut into solid rock ! ) and opened ...

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 ...

We keep a fierce eye on the maps and signs. We are managing
the autostrada really well now and only a few minor hiccups with the tolls.
Sometimes we have to put in several cards before the machine takes one; between

We’re slowly starting to realize that this trip is no longer a vacation, but a lifestyle. All the wonder that we are seeing and doing are equally as thrilling to experience as they are exhausting. But there’s no time to rest now. We only have a ...
... 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.
