Stay at the Grand Hotel Vesuvio and take the shuttle back and forth into town. http://www.vesuviosorrento.com/en/
Arrived Monday afternoon, traffic in Sorrento was a nightmare, full of scooters and crazy drivers, took an 90 mons to get from Naples to Sorrento.
Hotel ok, good points and bad points, eg pool towel is to last you all week and if you need it washing you pay eur5.00? A bit of a package holiday place, not seen so many brits since we left …
... You have to climb down through a cave at the end. My parents are able to watch the sunset every single night of the summer at the lake, and actually prefer the sunrise that wakes them like clockwork from June to September. They may complain a little, but I know they enjoyed this adventure I took them on.
My archaeology class took a field trip on Friday to the Oplontis Ruins, and my parents tagged ...
... but I found a Venchi at Termini (Venchi = one of the best chocolate gelatos ever) and that made it all better.
We finally got on the Frecciarossa to Naples and the ride was a very fast 1.5 hours. For a point of reference, to save money, I once took the regional train from Rome to Naples and it took me over 2.5 hours to get there, yesterday was such a luxury!
Our driver was waiting for us on the platform and we were off. Naploli ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Vesuvio Sorrento
We had a wonderfull holiday in Sorrento. First
because of the superb scenery, the view on the Bay of Napoli. But most of it has to do with the great service and accomodation of the Hotel Vesuvio and its staff. They are very friendly,
and extreme serviceminded. It is a, no it is the best, example of how to rightfully pleasure your guests.
We can advice everyone to go to the Vesuvio
Kind regards to Nino and Franco and both their staff for their kindness.
Arriverderci. Tot ziens.

Best hotel I have stayed in
Spent honeymoon in this fantastic hotel 2 years ago. Everything was perfect and the staff were so friendly and accommodating. The Bar and Restaurant staff were extremely chatty and cheerful and couldn't do enough to help and they were very forthcoming with local information and advice. The bedroom was very spacious, spotless and bright and airy. The food was great. Gorgeous views of the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius from Terrace.
Can't reccommend this hotel hightly enough. Will definitely go back.
Ciao! I've been to Sorrento on 2 occasions and both were spent at Grand Hotel Vesuvio. The views are stunning, looking over Naples and on clear days, you get a fantastic view of Vesuvius. The staff are wonderful - fantastic service, welcoming, friendly. Food is gorgeous. The best I've ever tasted and the rooms within the hotel are luxurious. Also, the pool is situtated in a great place for sunbathers.
10/10 - I'd recommend this hotel without thinking twice. Can't wait to return.
I have spent many holidays at this hotel and the service is excellent - the food superb and the views amazing. Although it sits high going out of Sorrento, it has a courtesy bus into the town which runs on a regular basis. You can walk into the centre of Sorrento, although coming back it is uphill and best to take the bus. After 10 trips I have decided to go try Lake Garda!
We spent our honeymoon here and a week the following year,As a golf professional I have spent time in the finest hotels in the world and this is one of the best. We recommend the Al a Carte dinner with the highly professional Nino the head waiter.This chap is the best head waiter that I've ever experienced, in fact he is our reason for going back to the hotel.We have no hesitation in saying pay a visit you woll not regret it
One of our favourite hotels in the Bay of Naples
We have stayed at the G H Vesuvio on 4 visits to the Bay of Naples in the last ten years and find it never changes. The hotel is spotlessly clean, the staff are attentive to the point that they remember your favorite cocktail from one year to the next, and the food is always good. No beating the Germans to the sun loungers in the morning as the hotel insists you use their towels by the pool, so if it does not have a body on it 'it's yours'. The veiws across the bay of Naples are spectacular, but beware some rooms face the back court with a view of the air condition units. A good place to relax with few children normally staying.
Not only is the view breathtaking, but the beautiful rooms with the blue and white tile floors were equally beautiful. The staff was very and friendly and helpful, I just hope I can go back someday!
An excellant hotel with wonderful views over the Bay of Naples. The staff were very friendly and welcoming.
Stayed in the the Hotel Vesuvio on our honeymoon during September 2003.
Beautiful accomodation although surpisingly far from the center of Sorrento. If you come by train or ferry expect to take a taxi from center (20 - 25 Euro) This property is located overlooking main town of Sorrento offering a quiet and comforable retreat from the hustle of the center. A shuttle from the hotel every hour offers free lifts into the center which was very convenient. Huge marbled entry and reception makes a grand entrance area. Reception staff is aloof but helpful anyway and all speak clear English for American travelers and offer helpful advise and travel advisory. Rooms are spacious, with lovely tile floors large baths and balconies overlooking the Bay. Breakfast was very plentiful with hot items as well as typical Italian cold breakfast daily. All of the dining room staff was cheery and engaging making the stay very pleasant. Dining room closes early for dinner (not typical of most restaurants shich serve late). Bar staff was friendly and helpful offering good advise and recommendations. Large balcony opened after dinner hours offered after dinner cocktails and coffee as well as live entertainment overlooking the bay. Overall stay was extremely pleasant and we would return. Friendly to families as there were many children there. Fantastic pool to take away the blues of the heat of Italy's sweltering August temperatures.
