3/10
Beware the food and the balcony

All style and no substance sums up this hotel. What they do not tell you is that if you have a room on the mountain side of the hotel, your balcony will be about 6inches from a wall and not only will you get no sun, the amount of natural light will be so restricted that you will need to have the lights on all day. Room numbers 02-06 on floors 1-5 are affected. Also, avoid dinner at the hotel - the food is mediocre to say the least and both of us were violently ill during our stay, something which has not happened anywhere else in the world. The staff spend more time chatting to each other than serving guests and the markup on the drinks is close to daylight robbery.

What can I say? What a dream of a hotel. Just the best views one can possibly imagine. (Make sure you get a room with a sea view) 2 min walk into Old Town Sorrento. Fab views from the terraces of the hotel esp at night. Staff were brilliant. Nothing too much trouble. Food good. Pools (5 in waterfall effect) were amazing. Small terraces which meant privicy to sunbathe on. Quite a few steps to negotiate up to the pool. Not alot to do in the evening apart from watch Sorrento pass by which was mesmerising. Just stunning. Entire family want to visit again (and that's a first!) Great location for sight seeing - even did Rome in a day. Would recommend to everyone except those with very young children. Teenagers love the chicness and the newly discovered sport of pool jumping. An absolute must to visit.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Capodimonte Grand Hotel

Fantastic View, Excellent Service

from GezWalsh
Make sure when you book this hotel that you insist upon a sea view, as not all the rooms are. And this view is too good to miss - worth paying a few pounds more as it looks out onto the bay and the smaller of Sorrentos harbours.

The hotels facilities are excellent, although they do not have a gym. The pools are superb with further amazing views. Although the restaurants incorporate huge sea-facing windows, the food is merely acceptable and we ate there only twice on an evening.

The staff are extremely helpful and friendly, particularly the maitre de.

Sorrento is a beautiful resort, although with two new "British bars" - loud, dirty and to be avoided - I fear for its future.

Don't miss visiting the other coastal towns - Amalfi and Positano. If time allows, stay overnight at these. Also worth visits - Capri and it's Grotto, Vesuvias, Pompei (although Herculaeum is better ). Take your time in choosing restaurants - they range from average to excellent. The Foreigners Bar does a good lunch and, again, enjoys a stunning view.

Sorrento is busy enough for the late 20's upwards and quiet enough for the more mature.

Nice hotel, poor food

from SurreyEngland
Nice hotel, good location with fabulous views over the Bay of Naples, provided you get one of the rooms at the front. Otherwise there's a close-up view of a cliff face. Like previous reviewer, resented having to pay for a sunbed. Service and staff were generally very good. The one major problem was the food. Breakfast was adequate, if unspectacular, but dinner was dreadful. The food was very poor for the standard of hotel. The bread roll and desserts were good, but everything else was mush. Pasta dishes were inedible, meats were indistinguishable from each other. We agree with previous reviewers, would stay there again, but only for B&B.

Honest Opinion

from A TripAdvisor Member
Just returned from Sorrento and Capodimonte and was very disappointed in Hotel, in particular the pool area, more like a 3 star hotel, very concrety, pool was never cleaned and pool towels had to last two days(very thin pool towels) also had to pay 5 euros per day for very uncomfortable sunbed, last time I paid for a sunbed must be at least 15 years ago!!!! Breakfast boring unless you like omlettes, room with a view was OK but dont think I will be returning to Capodimonte

Good location - Poor food

from MDQPR
Visited here June '04

Booked it late and didn't opt for the upgrade, this is a must as the first room given was tiny and had a view of the cliff face with little daylight. After paying for the upgrade we got a wonderful view of Sorrento from the room.
The first night in the restaurant I had a live SLUG in my salad, I sent it back but got no apology from either the waiting staff or the hotel as a whole!! Not a good first impression!

So to summarise I agree with the previous report, book this hotel B+B as the evening meal is not really up to 4* standard, but the views are fantastic and it is near to the town.

fantastic

from A TripAdvisor Member
my wife daughter and i had two fantastic weeks great food friendly staff and the most glorious view of the bay of naples

My boyfriend and I love Capodimonte!

from A TripAdvisor Member
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Grand Hotel Capodimonte in June 2004. We booked the hotel only a couple of weeks before departure so managed to pay 50% less than the average brochure price for the total holiday. Although generallly sceptical about package holidays, this proved to be very good value for money and we had an excellent holiday.
The hotel has a fantastic location, very close to the centre of Sorrento and witihin what we considered to be the more attractive area of the resort. We discovered a a couple of lovely walks on this western side of Sorrento and I am sure there are plenty more. We went to St Agata via the road (apx 9km - practically all uphill) and also to a couple of the small hamlets that collectively make up the area known as the Massa Lubrense. We struggled to find somewhere to eat in St Agata but have since found out that it boasts one of the most popular restaurants in Southern Italy.
In terms of the hotel room, we were extremely fortunate to have one of the two rooms that are built into the cliff face underneath the swimming pool. It was secluded, very light and spacious with lovely views across the bay. The only disadvantage was the disruption early in the morning from people moving sunbeds; however, the location and privacy more than compensated for this and my boyfriend and I became very fond of our room which we affectionately referred to as "the cave".
The food in the hotel could be improved although we were not disappointed as our expectations were not high, and this provided the perfect excuse to dine out in the evening! The breakfasts were particularly poor with a lack of fresh fruit and quality cereals and an exclusively self-service set-up; we even had to help ourselves to tea and coffee. In terms of evening meals, the starters were generally lovely and big enough to satisfy without the need for a main meal. This was fortunate as the main meals were not of a four star standard.
The service at the hotel was generally fairly good although the waitors could have been more attentive in terms of the speed of service particularly in the lounge and around the pool. There were not any of the small but important touches that you would get at a five star hotel.
If you are thinking of staying at the Capodimonte I would definitely recommend this hotel but suggest that you opt for bed and breakfast (or even room only if possible) and pay the extra for a room upgrade. The hotel also does not allow irons in the room so either be prepared to wear creased clothes or pay a significant charge for the in-house ironing service!
Overall, a fab holiday and a lovely hotel.My boyfriend and I will certainly never forget our Grand Capodimonte experience!

Great location but food very yesterday....

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband and I enjoyed a week at this hotel in May 2004. The hotel was the perfect location just 5 mins walk to the centre but having booked with First Choice had a room facing a wall ! Management v.helpful and we swapped the next morning to another more spacious room with wonderful views across the Bay of Naples.

The food was less than average standard for a 4* hotel and we ate out most of the time. The lunch at the pool side bar was simply awful. An evening visit to the local 3 michelin star restaurant 'Don Alfonso' made me feel a whole lot better !

There is also no entertainment to speak of.

All of that said, if you book b + b then I would recommend as the service was excellent and location and view spectacular. Just double check with the tour operator what type of room you have.

Nice Place

from A TripAdvisor Member
This was a nice hotel, and I could have also rated it above average. The value for the price was not as great as some other places we stayed on the Amalfi coast, however. Given the easy proximity to Rome & Pompeii, however, it may be that Sorrento hotels just cost more than Amalfi coast hotels.

The view from the common rooms was great, and the service was fine. Dinner there was very good too. The room was not fancy or even very pretty, but it was well kept and the view was wonderful.

The breakfast was very good and hearty.

If you want to stay in Sorrento so you can easily get to Pompeii for a night I would recommend it. If not, I would suggest you go further south to Positano, which is a much cuter town, or Ravello, which is beautiful.

Grand Hotel Capodimonte

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Grand Hotel Capodimonte has to be one of the best hotels my husband and I have ever stayed in. The hotel was beautifully clean, the food was excellent and the staff very helpful at all times. The hotel is situated overlooking Sorrento and has views over the Bay of Naples. It was only a 10 min walk into the centre of Sorrento and about 20 mins to the bus and train station. Go to the Fauno bar sit and watch everything which is happening in Tasso Piazzo. Also go the the theatre and see the musical of neopolition song and dance, brilliant!

What a place

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed half board for 7 nights in single room. The
hotel was stunning and the grounds and pool area the best I have seen in a long time.

I found the food excellent and substantial and the
staff could not have been nicer. My only grumble is
that my single room was a bit basic. All single rooms are cliff facing and I don't think mine justified the supplement I paid.

I would definately recommend the hotel for couples or for special occassions.

Top Local Tips for Sorrento

Two centre combination 3 or 4 days in Sorrento are sufficient to take day trips to Amalfi, Pompeii etc. Then we would suggest transferring to Capri for the second half of your holiday for a totally different atmosphere and some more spectacular scenery. The local ferries are easy to use - we went from Sorrento to Capri and then from Capri to Naples to catch our plane home, although the taxi ride from Naples Port to Naples Airport requires nerves of steel!

Sorrento at night Take a strole into to centre of Sorrento at night, find a table in the main square, order a good bottle of wine and just watch the world go by !

sorrento just down the road will be sorrento and if u go into the square and do a right u will come to 'the drains' which is full of some really great gift shops. make sure u try the limonchello! i liked the cream one.
