Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel La Vue D'Or Sorrento
Nice Hotel Shame about the food.
we arrived at the hotel after a long coach ride due to the strike at Napels airport nobody seemed to be around. The hotel was dark and a little forboding when you entered it and also very cold. THE FOOD IS A JOKE LITERALLY. Breakfast was fine the usual bread ect but dinner was terrible not so much the food but the quanity ,for example I chose as my maincourse one night prawn salad and I asked if it was a salad what came was prawn cocktail in a glass. Seasonal veg for 2 nights was tinned processed peas and another night just chips we did manage to laugh about it with the other guests lamb chops where was the meat skinny chicken drumsticks,still we managed to fill up with bread. They could have made a lot of money after dinner in the bar, but it was to cold to sit there people were literally shivering altho it was early May it was cold at night. We asked if they could light the fire as there was a fantastic big fire place there but was told no it was May and we did not need a fire to keep warm so we all went to bed. The rooms are nice and clean but the towels are like kitchen tea towels very thin but you get used to them after a while. The hotel is in a lovely setting the views are stunning and the transport into Sorrento very good, the waiters and the cleaning staff were very nice and helpful just a shame the management could not take on board the basic needs of holiday makers.as it is a nice hotel.
My wife and I spent a week on half-board at La Vue d'Or from 20 - 27 May 2005.
Plus points: Superb peaceful location high above Sorrento with spectacular views of the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius; warm welcome from friendly, helpful and professional staff; large reception/ bar/ lounge with reasonable prices for drinks and lunchtime snacks; several terraces - one beside the swimming pool - with plenty of sunbeds; rooms are serviced regularly and many have furnished balconies with great views; free minibus service into Sorrento - takes about 15 minutes.
Minus points: rooms are small (about 120 sq ft); towels are thin and non-absorbent; pool is unheated and quite cold early in the season; food is generous in quantity but rather dull, uninspired and repetitive eg fresh fruit as an alternative to desert was identical every evening - a small orange and an apple; no fruit on offer at breakfast and limited choices of bread and cereals.
We would give the hotel an above average rating if it were not for the disappointing food which brings it down to average. Booking in for Bed and Breakfast and eating out in the evening is probably the best option until the hotel finds a better head chef!
But we would happily stay there again.
Great place to relax
My best friend and our teenage daughters arrived at La Vue D'Or after 10 days of hectic train travel throughout Italy. We were impressed by the beautiful view and the gracious people who work at this hotel. It was a perfect place to take a break for a few days before heading to Rome and Milan. How wonderful to sit back, relax, and enjoy the sun during the day and the gorgeous sunsets at dusk. The accommodations, while not luxurious, were adequate, and the hotel shuttle to Sorrento prompt and useful. The highlight of my stay, however, was the perfect cappuccino our waiter served with a smile every morning. He was attentive and professional, and his positive, cheerful attitude was contagious, setting the tone for the rest of the day. I would definitely return there for a longer stay.
Nice place to stay
The La Vue D'or means golden fork in French. This is a charming place to stay. It reminded me of a country inn with a roaring fire.The views from our balcony were incredible of the Bay of Naples. It has a very remote location but offers complimentary shuttle service into and out of Sorrento.It is family owned and they all seemed very nice and helpful. It has a restaurant on the premises with a set price on the menu which was 19 euros for dinner. Breakfast was complimentary. All in all I enjoyed my stay in Sorrento and at the La Vue D'Or. Next time I will consider staying there again. It is a good home base to take in all the near by beautiful country side of southern Italy.

... fish. The owners of the restaurant had a big fluffy white dog that sat outside on the steps and my brother took some pictures with it. After dinner we headed back up where we came from and watched the sun set. We shopped a little more in downtown Sorrento and got an amazing gelato from a nice italian family. We all went right to bed when we got back to the hotel room. Tomorrow we check out and head to Manocalzati ...
... moved on and I decided when they were cueing up for communion was a good time for me to sneek out. even with the awkward moments it was a special experience. sorrento is a cute sea side tourist town that is famous for its lemoncello. being easter weekend all the italians come to the amalfi region and so does everyone so this place is absolutely heaving so I would suggest coming here in may june apparently gets cery husy like this all summer. ...
... Pompei ruins, which was such an awesome experience. It was nearly 70 degrees and sunny, and we walked around for four hours with an audio guide helping us navigate the remains of the ancient city after it was devastated by the eruption of Mount Vesuvious in 79AD . That night we had pizza and local wine at a cozy pizzeria right around the corner from our ...
The day was very overcast and dull. Not looking good, in fact there was lightning when I first peered out of the window. Not again! I am in desperate need of some sun on this holiday, that's for sure. We've had very little and while we are making the most of it, I would love for the sun to make a bit more of an appearance before we head back to NZ. Anyway, our tour guide Luisa was fun and chatty on ...
... would be more desirable to do this in cooler weather and with clearer air. But we were amazed! And the trip back was quick and less painless. Once we were off the bus we decided to visit the ruins site.
EXPERIENCING 79AD LIFE--
After resting in the shade, sipping a Coke, and sharing a granola bar we were more prepared to take on a city dating back to Roman time. We had purchased an audio guide and for 10.00 we each got ...
