Hotel Mediterraneo Sorrento
This white-washed hotel is perched dramatically on a cliff and has been transformed from a grand early 20th-Century home into a modern hotel. Here, you can savour the tranquillity and beauty of its setting but still be close enough to venture into town – just hop on the hotel’s free shuttle. There are lots of wide open spaces to relax so it never feels crowded. Find a shady spot in the gardens or by the pool which is surrounded by palm and citrus trees. If you long to have a dip in the sea, take the lift down to the bathing platforms at the bottom of the cliff.
Break up lazy days of sunbathing and swimming with lunch at the Aqua Pool Lounge which serves grilled meat and fish, salads, pastas and traditional Neapolitan-style wood-fired pizzas. As the sun starts to set, there’s a choice of stylish venues to soak up the remarkable views. Don't miss the free appetisers served daily at the chic White Bar. The panoramic Vesuvio Roof Restaurant is renowned for its mouthwatering Mediterranean cuisine and spectacular views over the Bay of Naples, Mount Vesuvius, Capri, Ischia and Procida. Don’t forget to bring your sunglasses to dinner as the dazzling sunsets are out of this world. With its 360-degree views over Sorrento, inviting day beds and creative cocktails, the beautiful roof terrace at Vista Sky Bar attracts people from far and wide. Open three nights a week in the summer months, it’s a popular venue for DJ sets as well as live jazz and bossa nova bands.
The Mediterranean-style rooms feature a fresh palette of blue and white, and views over the garden, surrounding hills or sea. It’s well worth upgrading to a Double Classic Sea View Room or a slightly more spacious Double Superior Sea View Room to wake up to incredible sea and sunset views.
