Our favourite rooms
All of the rooms have a fresh, bright green and white colour palette, but we especially love the Terrace Room at the top – it has a view of Vesuvius, courtesy of its eponymous, enormous rooftop, and can only be reached by a private lift.
The pool and Jacuzzi are set in the gardens, surrounded by dark wooden sunloungers, palm-trees and decking.
Leave room in your case to take home some of the huge lemons in the garden – the Sorrento version happens to be grapefruit-size.
No pets. In-room massages and other treatments can be arranged.
Little ones are welcome. Extra beds (€50 a night) can be added to larger rooms, and cots are free. There's a children’s menu in the restaurant. Babysitting with a local nanny costs €20. There’s a lifeguard on duty between 9am and 6pm.
