Hotel Mediterraneo is located in Sant'Agnello di Sorrento, a 15/20 min. (flat) walk to downtown Sorrento. The location is lovely: high on a cliff overlooking the Bay of Sorrento. The hotel is at the border of the sea ... well, at about 140 steps! BUT there's an elevator in the hotel that brings you right on the (black sandy) small beach.
The hotel has rooms overlooking the Bay. These rooms are facing the street and during the day there is quite some traffic. That's why we chose to have a room facing the pool/garden.
The staff is very professional and extremely helpful.
The hotel restaurant 'Vesuvio' is located on the top floor and has a magnificent panoramic view on the Bay. It has also a small terrace where guests can have their breakfast in the morning. Lovely!
Unique Quality: The hotel has recently been refurbished. It has all modern amenities like double glazed windows, sat-TV, direct dial phone, minisafe, minibar, A/C, ... The Mediterraneo being an old building the walls are thin. In case you're a bad sleeper, bring ear plugs!
The rooms as well as the bar, salon and restaurant are nicely decorated, in light blue and off-white/beige. Even the china is off-white with light blue!
The garden is a great place to relax, either by the pool or on the lovely garden terrace amidst the lemon/orange trees or under the palmtrees. Here's where you can have a drink or enjoy lunch (their home made pizza, baked in an authentic wood oven is to die for!). On some nights there's live Napolitan music in the garden.
Breakfast is buffet style with a variety of rolls, bread and pastry. Furthermore fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereals, cheese & cold meats, eggs, bacon, ...
Dinner is served at the table with a daily changing menu (to choose from 5 starters, 5 mains and 5 desserts). The food was of excellent quality. The restaurant has also an extensive wine list.
