Grand Hotel Vesuvio

From its hillside setting, the Grand Hotel Vesuvio offers up widescreen views of the Bay of Naples. There’s a big pool and a smart restaurant, plus a free shuttle bus that’ll run you to the centre of town.

The Grand Hotel Vesuvio sits in the hills behind Sorrento, surrounded by lemon and olive groves. Its lofty position gives it spectacular views – they sweep over Sorrento and the Bay of Naples to Mount Vesuvius.

It’s a 20-minute walk down into the town centre from the hotel, or you can jump on the regular courtesy bus. The petite, pebbly beach of Tonarella is a 10-minute walk away.

Wow, what a surprise we got. An amazing suite beautifully decorated with a balcony overlooking the the mountains and ocean. The service could not be faulted and the restaurant was wonderful. Has a real charm about it. The staff were very friendly and could not do enough for us. Didn't use the free shuttle bus into town but noticed it ran often.. Breakfast was lovely and still can't get over that view. Highly recommended if you're looking for something special.More

OMG Heaven!

This was the most beautiful hotel we went to in all of Italy! The location, on top of the hill, made for a breathtaking view : Sea + Mountains! Staff was very friendly and spoke English as well. Rooms are very spacious, comfy and beautifully designed. And at last, great food =) A shuttle bus was also available for guests to take them to the old part of town (a very cute place for shopping if you have the time)More

Sarah A,

Great Honeymoon & Hotel

Lovely hotel with even better views in a great location. The food is amazing and quality customer service. Out of all the noise but just a 10 minute walk from the town, I would only walk if it is adults as there is no pavement for the begining. There is however a free shuttle bus day & night. We had to pay a little extra to get a room with a sea view and of a decent size even though it was written by the travel agent that is was our honeymoon & that was expected. We did get welcomed with free champaign in our room though. Overall we could not have been happier with our experience & honeymoon. We went in July 2014 & had great weather.More

Amazing views

We stayed here in May 2006. Our ordinal choice of hotel was cancelled last minute so we were apprehensive with this last minute choice but we were not disappointed. The hotel is very impressive and we had a room with a wonderful view of Vesuvios and the Bay of Naples. The food was excellent and the staff were charming and helpful. As the hotel is a little outside of the town there is a courtesy bus several times a day. Sorrento is an amazingly pretty town with many hidden treasures. We did a tour of the Amalfi Coast which is absolutely beautiful. Would highly recommend the hotel and we hope to go back one day!More

Great for families

My family of three young teens and two adults had two extremely spacious, well appointed rooms next to each other. We were thrilled that there was an adjoining door so we had our privacy but were able to access their room. The rooms were very clean and comfortable with a gorgeous view of Mt Vesuvius from our balcony. The hotel was about 10 minutes by bus from Sorrento centre, so a little out of the way, but offered a free shuttle bus which was very regular and reliable throughout the day. The breakfast was adequate although not the healthiest. Would have like more choice and there was no toast which was odd. Staff however were very friendly and attentive. Facilities excellent and the pool was lovely. Highlight was a half hour stroll from the hotel gardens to the Bagni Regina Giovanna, an old Roman villa by a secluded, picturesque swimming spot. Ask at reception. Would definitely stay there again.More
