... at her all just very patient. Can you imagine that in Australia. No way. The Italians seem to be very laid back in the way they live. Have I mentioned that the tomatoes over here are so very tasty. Not at all like we get in Australia. And there are tomatoes and lemon trees growing all over Italy. And you can also buy colourful pasta. Blues, reds, greens etc. You could buy the pasta that matched your kitchen or ...
... cured meats, fresh salads and desserts that were so good we didn’t even notice that the Easter bunny didn’t bring us a basket. And if all that wasn’t enough, we met up later that night for a 6 foot long pizza and beers. Happy Easter indeed!
Marion is fluent in Italian and lived there several years ago so she was the best tour guide we could have ever asked for. From Pietra Santa, we headed back to Sienna for a few days of sightseeing and ...
... actually taking place in a restaurant ten minutes down the road and by this time it was raining even harder. The rep declared it was only a little rain and smiled as she was the only one with an umbrella. I thought I'd grab a cheeky word with her but she was not interested really.. Putting this behind us (I'd write a complaint email later in true English style) we decided to explore Sorrento, armed with 2 €5 umbrellas bought from a child's shop. I stole a brief look at the map ...
... shops everywhere. Positano day trip: From the moment we stepped off the bus, we were greeted by an unforgettable view of colourful stacked houses packed onto slopes. We strolled around the town and spent the afternoon lazing by the beach. The views from the beach were pretty sensational, even though there was only a tiny free beach. It was slightly overcast on the day we went but it was still hot to swim and relax. Pompeii Day trip: We took a day ...
... decide to take the "ferry" back to Sorrento. We pass Capri on the. Way back, as you'll see from the photos, it's a dreary day and we're glad to get back to Sorrento about 2pm, eat lunch and relax. And we did relax. I finished my book called "Pompeii". It provided lots of info about Pompeii that we visit tomorrow. We ate a quiet dinner at our hotel, that is really posh and off to ...

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.
