... 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!
Well today is our last half day in Italy. Our departure time from the hotel is 13:30 and the flight is at 17:30, not long to go before we are back in the sunny UK. This morning we grabbed some last minute sun in the town centre and just took in the streets and little shops for one last time. Well the coach was prompt so we are headed to the airport now and back to London! Farewell Sorrento and ...
... him some turkey. I had to suffer cat lady jokes for the rest of the day from my friends though. But he was so cute and so skinny. Oh by the way the sandwhich I got was probably the best one I've had here. It was turkey with fresh mozzerella and lettuce. I literally watched them slice my mozzerella it was so fresh. Everything is so fresh here. You don't even have to try to eat better here. Everything is healthy and fresh and natural. I love it. So after lunch and coating myself ...
... Sam needs to travel here next year again and I hope to come back in 2015. By then I anticipate my Italian to be quite good as I will meet with Palmyra regularly to have conversations in Italian too.
At this stage I could quite easily go home. I have not spoken to Sam about this but he is probably feeling similar. I am confident that once we reach Sorrento, we will be happy to be there. Luca suggested that Capri is only 30 mins by boat from ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Royal Sorrento
Stayed at the Royal for two nights and found it to be one of nicest 4 stars in all of Italy. Great location, a convenient 5 min walk to the town and the docks for hydrofoils (you may want to get a taxi for the long walk up from the docks though). Lobby is quite nice and grounds outside are very pretty with great views of Vesuvius. Our room was the Standard type, but it was quite spacious and the bathroom was very clean and roomy. Although our room fronted the street, the glass was insulated well enough that we heard no street noise. Staff was quite friendly and helpful at the front desk, but didn't have a concierge service (at least none that we were aware), so you should do some of your own trip planning. Breakfasts were good, but we weren't as impressed with dinner, plus the wait service staff at the restaurant isn't all that good. That's only real negative we had with the Royal.. Otherwise, it's a splendid place to stay.
A little bit of heaven on earth
We have just returned from a week of pure luxury and relaxation in the Grand Royal Hotel in Sorrento.
We both absolutley loved it with its own private beach (and a lift to get you there) breathtaking views of the bay of Naples fabulous gardens, restaurant, bar and snack bars which provided great food and drinks. Freshly cooked ommlettes made by a chef at breakfast each morning and also a buffet selection with fresh fruit cereal bacon sausage etc. and waiter service dinners in the evening time with a great variety to choose from. Great location right in the centre of everything. Rooms are spotless clean and air conditioned with a great electric shutter on the window. We will definitley return in the near future as it was one of our best holidays ever.
Toronto, Canada - Outstanding Hotel
Stayed here July 25th for a few days. I also booked on the strength of TripAdvisor reviews and it was truly outstanding. We had a sea view room with balcony which was spotlessly clean and beautiful. The bathroom was spacious and luxurious. The breakfast was excellent and it is fabulous to sit ouside on the terrace overlooking the gardens while eating your freshly cooked omlet. The staff were extremely efficient and a pleasure to deal with every day - nothing was too much trouble for them. The location is great - a short walk to the square where all the restaurants and shops are. The pool area is also great. Would not hesitate to stay here again -
The hotel was great. Location, food, staff were superb. I will certainly be back next year
Exactly as everyone reviewed it........
Just come back from a short stay at the Royal in Sorrento (which I booked on the strength of reviews on this site). This hotel is a real gem, quiet, efficient, beautiful surroundings and excellent staff. I even recovered a wallet of credit cards lost in Positano with the aid of reception staff and honest shopkeepers! I would recommed paying the extra for a seaview as the rear rooms do overlook a busy road. Breakfast is excellent.
We love this place!
Wonderful Hotel: Location, Staff, View, Everything!
We have been going twice a year for the past 4 years and have booked again for June & September 2004. Faultless.
We stayed at the Grand Royal Hotel for one night this past May. We were originall booked to stay at the Villa Maria which was nearby. After arriving at the Villa Maria we found that it was not up to our expectations and need to leave. If you are ondering what happened just seach on "Villa Maria" in Sorrento here on Tripadvisor.
Faultless, wonderful holiday.
From the minute we stepped into the hotel everything was just perfect. The room, the view and the welcoming food tray. (we arrived Late in the evening)Mealtimes where delightful, the setting beautiful and the staff wonderful.The hotel grounds are fantastic as is the pool.We have had a memorable holiday and shall certainly return to the Royal.
