Grand Hotel Flora, Sorrento Italy
★ ★ ★ ★
A large, spacious, well-presented property which is not exactly oozing with style or quality and a touch dated in places. Pool is larger than average with plenty of sunbathing space. It has a top-floor restaurant and two bars, one poolside. Located on a very busy main through road, it is a trek to the historic town centre, with access to the seafront somewhat longer. Nothing onsite to occupy children.
Mostly UK guests, most of whom are couples and individuals.
Flora Hotel in Sorrento is set back from the busy main through road, towards the edge of the town centre, with a few local amenities, petrol station and apartment buildings nearby. A bus stop is 50 metres and the train station, 400 metres. A 15-minute walk to the historic centre.
Main central seafront area, called Marina San Francesco, is a 25 minute walk away. It comprises 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 a 10-minute walk downhill from the main square.
Large 20-metre rectangular pool is set in a spacious tiled area to the rear on the ground floor. Lines of sunbeds are on both sides and there is a further raised sun terrace with more sunbeds to one end. Shaded snack bar with chairs and tables at the other end.
