Service, facilities and amenities were all outstanding. It is quite a ride (20 minutes) up to the hotel and the shuttle service is time-restricted, but the quality of the staff and the views and the peace and quiet made it well worthwhile. The dining "room" is several km's down the road by shuttle, but the homey service and food quality were great!

... can't say we're near the ocean because Italia is surrounded by seas. Sorrento is adjacent to the Sea of Napoli (there we go again; that's Naples to us), and this sea is still technically part of the Mediterranean Sea. I can't wait to take a dip! We passed a lot of resorts on the way where a lot of folks were sunbathing and swimming. The water is fairly clear-not quite the color of the sea in the movies we see about Greece; I ...
... I kept insisting more stairs would only stretch that pain out. I don’t know if it would or not, like I’m an expert, but he bought it ;-)
We had a great stroll down by the water and got some great snaps of the dark clouds hanging over the village. I also noticed that a small replica of the Vietri sul Mare village had been created in ceramic and put on display so I went over to snap that too. Then it occurred to me that I had seen a lot of these along ...
