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.

Great location, poor service
Been here last June 2015 with my husband..We took the fast train from rome- Napoli station, then get the ordinary trains from Napoli - Sorrento.It was tiring, but when we arrived in this hotel, Its a relieved..The view is amazing..as well as the hotel (looks big). We arrived early than the check-in time (around 11:00am)..so,the f.0 officer told us we can leave our bags so that we roam around the hotel... which is a good gesture of him.,He told us they will just call us when our room is ready..but seems that they forgot us..We are in the lobby for about an hour before the usual check in time but no one approached us that our room is ready..At around 2:00pm, I decided to asked one of the F.O officer (another guy) and said.."ohh yes,. It was an hour since they finished cleaning the room" ohh well I said, the other guy said he will call us..and if U knew that we are just in front of u waiting.. (I was disappointed). LAter on,when we reached our room..Was dis appointed again,due to the fact that the room didn't meet my expectations.. Was old style, the T.V not working at all, very tired furnishings, I don't like the bathroom. It wasn't like 4 star hotel..when u see the hotel outside it looks like 5 star but this hotel should be 3 star only.The only good thing is we have a private balcony which I think most of the rooms has..I just enjoyed seeing the dramatic view..from hotel u can see the Volcano (Mt. VESUVIUS).However, The food was ok. The breakfast buffet is great with good selection. The swimming pool very wide..and love the different kinds of flowers..Lovely gardenð. They have a shuttle bus from the hotel into sorrento town evry 1hr. I wont recommend this hotel to others, The services &rooms are like 3 stars or less with 5 star rates.Not worth it.More

Relaxing after Rome
After being in Rome for 4 days, travelled to Sorrento for a relaxing last leg of our holiday! Hotel was excellent and enjoyed all aspects of this hotel. Pool was clean and easy to get lunch and drinks if needed. Rooms clean and nice to have space after smaller room in Rome. Food was excellent, we enjoyed choices on offer and always found something to eat, waiters explained menu if unsure of the wording. Did notice from other diners that they were quite flexible and could do plainer meals for children when requested but we enjoyed all meals we had. Breakfast again good selection, asked for poached eggs on our last day and this was no issue. We used the bus service into Sorrento once as we found it was a 20 minute walk into Sorrento and sometimes bus was very busy. Walk was easy, turn right out the hotel and cut through car park across the road, it is only 5 mins without a path but we felt perfectly safe and once on the path nice walk in evening and we were not tied to bus times. Reception helpful with any questions. We walked to train station (30 mins) and got ourselves to Vesuvius and Herculaneum. Overall this hotel was a great way to finish our adventures in Italy. More
Great Hotel, Great Food, Great Staff
The Hotel is situated above Sorrento and has excellent views of the Bay of Naples and Vesuvius ( make sure you get a sea view, its well worth it) The room was clean, spacious and comfortable with good air con that managed to keep to room at a comfortable temperature despite the 37c heat outside. Food in the restaurant was very good , our daughter is a, fussy, 16 year old and she ate everything offered to her, no higher recommendation can be made! Dinner is ordered form a menu that caters for all tastes including vegetarians. The staff team were professional and courteous and I got the impression they had worked at the hotel for some time, they took a real pride in their work and this showed throughout our visit. We stayed on a bed breakfast and evening meal basis. Drinks were reasonably priced in the restaurant with a nice bottle of house red, from Sorrento, coming in at 13 euros (Â£10.00ish). Bar prices were okay with a round of three drinks coming in at 12 euros (two alcoholic drinks and a non alcoholic fruit cocktail for the teen) The view form the outdoor drinks deck is great. The free bus down to Sorrento that runs hourly from 9am to 11.30pm with a break between 1pm and 4pm, if I remember correctly, is a boon as taxi fares are expensive (15 euro for the seven minute trip one way) The hotel's heyday seems to have been in the 50's when Caruso, Errol Flynn etc stayed there and its glamour is retained today, the period dÃ©cor, large chandlers etc just adds to the atmosphere. A whole expansive floor is dedicated to dining and the indoor bar, this is a real treat. Wifi is free and covers all the hotel including pool bar and pool side and was of an, acceptable, speed. My only criticism was that the Sky TV box did not work during our visit, I reported it but it was never fixed, and I did not follow it up as it was not important to me, some other guests mentioned issues with their Sky as well. The pool was large, clean and included a section for small children. Overall I highly recommend the Hotel and would happily stay again.More
It is situated above the city of Sorrento. Our room was clean and comfortable.Although a bit away from town, a shuttle is provided to take you to town center. The views were amazing. . Food was good. Never had time to use the pool but it looked very nice. Recommend.More
