Stunning Sorrento

A travel blog entry by lizedmond

Day 1 - Tuesday. A train from Rome to Napoli (Naples), then another from Napoli to Sorrento, so we arrived at 2pm. What a great choice of location and accommodation. As we were starving when we arrived, we checked-in, dumped our cases and went straight down to the private beach for a late lunch. This accommodation was one of our splurges, and is …

... sort of guidance. I felt like a proud parent when they safely returned to me that afternoon.

I was certainly sad to see them go late into the night on Sunday, but I was happy to have the opportunity to see them after two months away from home, and an unspecified amount of time left until I return to America...

The next entry will describe my spring break adventures, so prepare yourselves for that!

Area of Sorrento

I was an hour early for check in, I went for a walk to look for the coast line, after about ten minutes I found it and it was stunning, unfortunately on my way back I got caught in a down poor of rain and wind and my Paris umbrella quit and fell apart and i was not coordinated enough to get my poncho over me and the pack so I got a good drowning getting back to the hostel.

... The train journey offers amazing views and we have been joined by a four piece band on the train! This certainly beats the drunk busker that sometimes gets on at Hove and sings great balls of fire. The journey was good fun to herc as we got some lovely views out of the window and was the first time we had left Sorrento. Herculaneum was just a short walk down the hill from the station and as you walk towards the ticket office you cast your eye over what ...

... were crashing over the seawall at the ferry landing, so difficult to get off boat and stay dry!

Wednesday, Sept 18
Decided to have a slow day with less walking as George has blister on toe. Took a 1.5 hour bus ride with commentary to small villages outside of Sorrento. We hopped off in Sant'Agata to have lunch in a restaurant we had read about only to find it was not open for lunch. Walked around the little village and ate at a charming little ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Parco dei Principi Sorrento

    Great View, but very costly; April 2004

    from

    This hotel has a great view of the Bay of Naples, but it is not central to the city. It is about a 1/2 hour walk to the center of Sorrento. They do have a shuttle bus, complimentary, that runs almost every hour, to/from hotel/city center. Rooms were nice; they were spacious and clean. Restaurant was overpriced. There were a lot of hotels, perched on the same cliffs, that had the same wonderful views. This hotel was the most expensive hotel on our trip and based on the price and non-central location, I would not recommend it.

    Romantic with Stunning Views

    from

    We stayed here in June of 2000....Located up on a cliff with stunning views overlooking the sea, this hotel, from what I remember, was formerly the grounds of a princess. Although her home was reconstructed as a hotel, much of the original grounds are still in tact which are absolutely beautiful. The area was quiet and serene, the room size was decent with OK decor, there was a pool and a private beach accessible by elevator ...overall, we'd give the hotel a 3.5 out of 5 in US standards, however, with thelocation and views, we'd bump it up to a 4 to 4.5. Quaint neighborhood with a couple of restaurants in the area, however if you drive down the hill to town, there is a lot of shopping, restaurants and things to see. Its definitely not a Sheraton, but truly a nice hotel, and we'd definitley stay there again.

    Ponti's Pearl in the Med

    from

    I have stayed at this hotel for three years in a row and can't wait to return! I confess to being something of a retro design freak and a week at the Parco is pure timewarp heaven. It's clear from previous reviews that this hotel is not going to be everyone's cup of tea-it's certainly not going to be a lot of people's idea of what a five star hotel should be! However, if you bear in mind that the ricketty-looking dressing table in your room is worth far more than what your holiday cost, it might give a different perspective on things. Designed by architect Gio Ponti in the early sixties, the Parco is one of the few remaining hotels in the world to retain its original fittings and decor, painstakingly designed by Mr Ponti, right down to the floor tiles, each room having a different pattern. The hotel was discreetly renovated a couple of years ago, while faithfully retaining or replacing original features. The comparative starkness of the rooms, decorated in blue and white reflects the colours of the surrounding sea, while being a cool sanctuary from the searing outdoor heat. The view from the balcony is probably one of the world's best with Vesuvius to the right, Capri to the left and the twinkling lights of Naples across the bay. Service is superb, however the food leaves a little to be desired but is nonetheless passable. If you are planning on going, be prepared for a quirky experience-if you want swags, gold taps and plush carpets, your best bet's going to be the Excelsior Vittorio just up the road. If you're walking into town, take the back lanes route as the main road is potentially lethal! that said, The beautiful extensive grounds of the hotel and the space age swimming pool should keep any need for forays into the outside world to a minimum.

    The worst

    from

    Other than the nice view if your have an ocean front room, this hotel is a disaster. It was designed to amplify noise, no carpeting, the beds and pillows are like wood, and the shower spits out less water than the toilet. Better off sleeping on the beach!

    A cheap motel with the price of a 5 star hotel

    from

    We spend three days at the hotel and we fell like they treat us as a second class guest.1- The bathrooms were dirty2- Not a friendly staff3- Never gave us wakeup call that we ask.4- The food at the restaurant was not to good5- the bed was so hard that the floor will adjust better to your body.They just have become a 5 stars hotel but they treat us like if they were a cheap motel.

    Awesome Hotel

    from

    Rooms were very large, bedroom, living room, bathroom. The gardens and views were stunning. Really nice salt water pool, cool black sand private beach. Very peaceful and beautiful, definately recommend it and will be going back, price was perfect! Fun piano bar!

    A cool hotel

    from

    We were not sure whether we liked the decor to begin with but it really grew on us. All blue and white '60s minimalism with loud geometric patterned tiles in immaculate, newly restored condition.Together with the stark lighting the ambience is "cool" but somehow this contrasts well with the warmth of Sorrento outside. The location is what you really pay for, the views across the Bay of Naples to Mt Vesuvius are nothing short of spectacular. The hotel is situated a 20mins walk from the centre of Sorrento which I think is a positive - the location is peaceful and the hotel has its own beach and swimming cove at the base of the cliff which some of the de-luxe hotels in town do not. The staff were really friendly and attentive. The food was good but overpriced in my mind. Would I go back? Definitely.

    Enjoyed the peaceful, beautiful setting

    from

    A nice hotel in a park like setting with lots of trees, 2 swimming pools and a private beach. The hotel is located a 20 minute walk from the town and has a shuttle service - although it only seats 8 and does not run very often.Staff was helpful. Breakfast is served on a terrace overlooking the water.

    Groovy Hotel

    from

    The setting of the Parco Dei Principi is spectacular, perched above the cliffs with a huge garden and private "beach" and breakwater (this is as much or more beach than any other hotel in Sorrento, due to the cliffs).

    Stunning views

    from

    The room we had was newly renovated and looked straight out over the Med. The staff were excellent and extremely helpful. The food in the restaurant was just about the best we had in Italy. The pool was peaceful and the beach very private. Their shuttle bus makes it easy to get into Sorrento but the 20 minute walk was nice anyway. I would thoroughly recommend staying here.
