Historical Traveller Reviews of Grand Hotel la Pace
Very Nice, Fancy, but not close to townfrom NJZeke
BUT, if you are looking for a fancy hotel to rest pool side, go into town only 1 time a day - drive to see other beach towns and have a 'homebase' - this hotel would definately work for you.
There is a hotel shuttle, but I ended up driving to town myself and paying for parking or taking a cab if parking was going to be an issue (like at the ferry).
I would only recommend this hotel if you are looking for a resort-ish relaxing experience (and don't care about location) rather than a true tourist experience.
Best holiday ever!from seacar22

I wouldn't rate this as a five star hotel more 4star (ish) the pool area was nice but food was average and expensive so dont eat there unless you are starving (or dont want to take the walk to nearest cafe or restaurant). The breakfast however was fabulous and we had lovely omelettes, bacon, toast and huge selection of pastries to choose from, however they do state breakfast is served 7 -10.00, so obviously if you arrive 15 minutes before they finish serving you may not get a full choice. We didnt use taxis at all and yes it is away from main sorrento but as with other reviewer we were well aware of this and had no problem using the shuttle bus which I wouldnt call infrequent as it had timetable and we used this daily twice a day and it was never late! We also didnt mind the walk only the first five minutes were a bit hairy on the small downhill road.
If you do want to stay later in sorrento maybe if you are dancing the night away in Foreigners club or sampling late dinner in one of the fabulous restaurants well why not its your holiday.
We couldnt fault this hotel even with the dubious star rating as the deal we got by booking direct with the hotel was fantastic, I have to say less then €105 a night for both myself and my husband b&b, the room was also huge bright and we did get a view. Dont be afraid to ask for a discount I wasnt!

People who complain about this hotel and its staff, must take a look at themselves, maybe they are the real problem !!

The booking had been confirmed by e.mail and I was glad I had a copy as we were told that we did not have a booking. We were shown one room at the back of the hotel which was small and dark. This was refused. We were then given a front facing room which was larger and brighter.
Breakfast was disappointing. We arrived for breakfast at 9.45am (breakfast is served from 7am to 10am). The coffee was cold: the iced water was warm. The orange juice was out of a machine. The choice of breads etc was limited. By 10am, the breakfast area was being cleared even though guests were still arriving. This is fine for a 2 star hotel perhaps but not for a five star.
The walk to San Agnello is not long but it was down a dusty, busy narrow road with no pavements.
To get to Sorrento, you need to get a taxi. The hotel have a courtesy bus but it runs infrequently.
The hotel is relatively new and has a grand reception area. Unfortunately, it lacks atmosphere
After the first night, we checked out and moved to the Grand Hotel Cocumella. Terrific hotel with a far better location.
Top Local Tips for Sorrento
This hotel is hard to find! Ask direction to the Sant'Agnello church. Drive along. You'll see it jutting out as you drive towards it. as you get close to the square where it is situated turn RIGHT up past the pharmacy. The road doesnt look like there could possibly be a hotel up there. Go up nearly a mile and you'll find it
Rental Car Nightmare We booked with Europcar in the Uk and asked specifically for a complete waiver to cover all damages, crashes, stolen. In Naples airport they asked us to pay extra and had to point out we paid the extra already (we had confirmation of this). Eventually he handed us the paper work (which was in Italian) and sent us to pick up the car. When we picked up the keys we doubled checked and were then told we are not covered if the car is stolen. We had to call the UK, who then spoke to Europcar Italy and confirmed that all over Campania there is NO COVER if your car is stolen. So we decided not to take the car and had to make our own way to St Agnello. A taxi was 100 Euro as we missed the bus and didn't want to waste another 2 hours. A great inconvenience indeed. We thought we double checked this in the UK - on returning to the UK Europcar still said they do not understand why Naples would not cover for stolen cars. I don't know if other car rentals offer this or not. BEWARE.
Amalfi Coast Take a tour to the Amalfi Coast, driving can be very dangerous. The roads are very narrow and you can be distracted by the views...the scenery is beautiful!!!
