    Everything. This hotel should be rated as five stars. It has a fantastic view of the pool, the mountains and the sea. The prestige rooms are fantastic.

    The water is not hot enough in the bathroom. The towels should be changed into new ones Bath robes should be provided

    The location was excellent and within easy walking distance of downtown Sorrento. The views were spectacular and the rooms were beautiful a delightful place to stay

    The view was unparalleled....the bay of Naples with Vesuvius and directly on the cliff. Close to the town of Sorrento - walking distance to great restaurants and music. The morining buffet was elegant and very fresh (part of room cost). The staff was more than helpful in making our stay amazing. I loved it and would return.

    Getting to the ocean the lift broke at one point. Also the jacuzzi did not function by the pool...should be repaired.

    The staff at the Grand Hotel Royal really go out of their way to make your stay a pleasant one. Absolutely love this hotel! It is lovely, comfortable, clean, and conveniently-located. It's location on the cliffs of the Bay of Naples is a big plus. Beautiful views watching the sunset over the water from the terrace.

    I wish they would open their beach up a week or two earlier . . . even if you didn't want to swim, sunning by the water would be nice.

    Fabulous

    The hotel is very well located. Just a two minute walk from the train station and the from bus station where buses from the airport go. The atmosphere of the hotel is really pleasant and elegant. The staff was nice and friendly. The breakfast was also pretty good especially compared to others in Italy. Our room -we were upgraded to Classic room, - was spacious, and the bathroom was big and comfortable and also well equipped. The interior of the room is really nice too.

    The website of the hotel says that each room either has a sea view or a view to a luxurious park. It was not true in our case. From the room we could see a street however not busy, and some normal looking residential buildings and some palm trees. The pillows are quite uncomfortable. There is no indoor pool, jacuzzi or sauna, so when the weather is bad you cannot enjoy any spa activities. (And in November the weather was bad).

    They did not open there private beach when the weather was hot. Kept making excuses that the weather was not good. Other hotels in the area all had there private beaches open.

    Very good

    Lovely room with a lot of space. Great location, in that you could walk to many restaurants, shopping and train station. Breakfast was wonderful and lavish for European standards. Public areas were elegant and well furnished. Views from outside patios are outstanding. Staff at the front desk was very pleasant and helpful.

    Pool and hot tub were cold. It was a big hastle to get ice for the room.......Bartender was rude and charged for it. Also, the amount charged differed depending on his mood that evening.

    I thought the Hotel was in the perfect position for anyonce travelling to Sorrento, a couple of minutes walk and you are in the middle of everything, also just across the road from the Bus stop taking you on trips. The Hotel staff are welcoming and friendly and the food is very good. Our room was on the Road side of the Hotel and if I recommended it to anyone who didn't like noise then they should request a Sea facing room, the noise didn't bother us as it is very Italian, we even sat on the Balcony in the evenings as the views of the Mountains are fantastic.

    Superb

    Nice room with a fantastic view. Very attentive, friendly and helpful staff. You can't beat the location for the views of the bay of Naples and Vesuvius and proximity to the main part of Sorrento. Good food too (not excellent but good and certainly reasonable value)

    Would have liked tea / coffee facilities in the room. Also it can be difficult finding a sun lounger next to the pool or on the lower level as people take to reserving them with towels (or shoes or lemons!) at first light and then never actually using them. Obviously you can just remove the item/s and take it anyway but it would be good to have some clear rules from the hotel on this. That said, we were out by around 9:00 most mornings and there were still plenty left. The two times we had an issue the hotel staff offered to help so this wasn't a big issue (there's also a great view by the pool) but something to be aware of.

    Superb

    Fantastic facilities and location. Some of the staff very friendly and helpful, but then, some aloof, distant and uncaring. Great cleaning staff. Best breakfast we had in Europe after 10 weeks of travelling.

    My wife had an extremely nasty fall in the corridor due to a wet floor. Initially, there was great concern shown by the staff, as my wife was in a great degree of pain. A doctor was not required as there was no broken bones but a significant amount of bruising was soon discovered by us. However, there was no follow-up by the staff nor as much as a register of concern nor enquiry into her welfare. My wife spent the rest of the day in bed and in pain. Only having a limited amount of time in Sorrento, we found ourselves unable to enjoy the township as we should, and under normal circumstances, could have, as it is a beautiful town. We felt robbed through no fault of our own.Very disappointing to experience what we did.
