Grand Hotel La Favorita, Sorrento Italy
★ ★ ★ ★
A stunning, centrally-located hotel, which underwent a major renovation that was completed in 2010. It is decorated in a Mediterranean style which mixes traditional features with a contemporary design style. Superb facilities are complemented by the extensive roof terrace with panoramic views and tranquil grounds. Very handy for the historic centre and seafront. Notable also for the fact that it caters for disabled guests.
Mainly UK and American guests with some other nationalities. Appeals to couples and individuals wanting an immaculate hotel with good facilities.
On a cobbled side street, just off the cliff top and at the edge of the historic centre. Lots of tiny side streets are a stroll away. It is a 5-minute walk to Piazza Tasso where there is a bus stop and taxis.
A main central seafront area of the town, called Marina San Francesco, has wood-decked jetties with chargeable sunbeds, parasols and changing cabins. There are also narrow stretches of dark sand with more sunbeds and parasols. Access is via public, chargeable elevators from the clifftop above or by a 10-minute walk downhill from the main square.
A raised 7-metre square pool in a stone wall surround has views of Mount Vesuvius in the distance and out to sea. It is set in a pretty terraced garden with ornate furniture and orange trees providing plenty of shade.
