The hotel was perfectly located for a special anniversary.The hotel overlooks the Bay of Naples, with Vesuvius casting its shadow over Pompeii and Herculaneum, Naples in the distance across the bay, and the Sorrento harbour only a 10 minute walk away. The food was excellent, especially breakfast sitting in a panoramic restaurant overlooking the bay with its clear blue sea... More

I don't know where to begin with this hotel, everything about it was stunning. The views, the breakfast, the decking where you would swim. Just beautiful. The bus service that was provided to get to Sorrento was easy and at regular intervals in the morning and evening, otherwise a 25 minute walk if you would rather (which we did in... More

We loved the view and wanted to have dinner overlooking the water. The restaurant had an entire bank of windows that looked out on to the water. Romantic, eh? Uh, nope. They seem to have very strict rules about dinner here in Italy, as in NO DINNER UNTIL 7:30. Thus we had to wait and have dinner at 7:30 --... More

We booked this hotel to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and were excited to arrive, since the pictures on the booking page looked great! Our first disappointment was that, rather than being in the hotel itself, our room was in a 1980's concrete building along a busy road, not in the original hotel building you see in the brochures.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Five-star accommodation and a prime location sat high on the ancient rampart of tufa, the Parco dei Principi is a testament to the timeless creativity of Gio Ponti, one of the most enlightened advocates of Italian architecture of the 20th century.Between the blue sea of Sorrento Coast and the lush greenery of the botanical gardens, Paul Leopold of Bourbon, the princes of Cortchacow and the entourage of the Russian aristocracy fell in love with this incomparable natural scenery, giving it a solemn historical heritage.Minimal atmosphere and space characterises the 96 rooms with original furnishings designed by Gio Ponti and customized specifically for the Hotel: the famous headboard-beds (1948), toilet set 'Vanity' with circular mirrors (1950), the chair 'Lightweight' (Cassina, 1952) and large fitted wardrobes. A variety of ceramic floors - as many as rooms - in shades of blue and white, in antique Majolica D'Agostino from Salerno, to reflect the colours of the sea and sky of Sorrento: moons, circles, triangles, stars and leaves are also used to tell a different story in every room.At the Restaurant Gio Ponti, a spectacular window over the Gulf of Naples and its islands, the day starts with a grand breakfast. Through striking tunnels in the rock, you arrive at the private beach or at the equipped solarium on the cliff. The pier is home during the summer months to the restaurant Poggio Siracusa where you can enjoy the fresh offerings of the sea accompanied by the sounds of the waves below.Among the horizon, the ancient oaks and the rare trees essences of the enormous botanical park, there is a seawater swimming pool designed by Gio Ponti as 'a mirror of water to wood nymphs'.To restore harmony to the body and spirit, guests can access the Fitness & Beauty Center of the Hotel, the charming majolica rooftop terrace with a view, and the marbled terrace of Villa Cortchacow dating back to the eighteenth century, on which the first ballerina performed to the Court of St. Petersburg.Since 2012, the lobby, with the incredible view of the Gulf has hosted the 'Museum of the Opera', an exhibition of original drawings and furniture in the rooms and in the common areas that have marked the history of Italian design.The business center of the hotel offers several meeting rooms with complimentary Wi-Fi and innovative technology: from the classic style of Sedowa hall with a terrace overlooking the sea, to the most modern modular Leonardo hall, surrounded by the garden Bourbon, with a seat capacity of 350. The outdoor areas offer a pleasant alternative for coffee breaks, lunches and dinners.Within the enchanting scenery of Monti Lattari sloping terraces lined with citrus, Parco dei Principi is an excellent location for pleasant walks through the typical craft shops and luxury shopping streets in the center of Sorrento, and for excursions to the nearby Amalfi Coast, the island of Capri and the archaeological sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum. ... more   less
