This was our first family holiday in 10 years and couldn't have asked for anything more. The staff were incredibly helpful with every request that we had. They gave us amazing first hand knowledge and information about everything we wanted to do, giving us great advice on where to go and honestly it made our holiday. The restaurants they recommended...

This is a wonderful place to spend a couple days on your Italy trip. Situated right on the Sea, on top of a hundred foot cliff, the views are spectacular. Located in a unique part of Sorrento, it is like you are a world away from the big cities, like Rome or Milan.

This hotel is really well situated. Right on the cliffs with a lift down to a jetty at sea level. Beautiful views. Good breakfast. Very clean and comfortable rooms. Attentive staff. My only tip would be to take slippers as the tile floors are very cold! This also makes the rooms a bit noisy The hotel is about a 15-20...

The staff are great, the food is excellent, the views are stunning, the rooms are spacious and comfortable. The only thing that let's this hotel down is that the beds and pillows are very hard, which led to uncomfortable and restless nights! If the beds were more comfortable we would definitely recommend this hotel, but if you like hard beds...

Great grand hotel as the name implies. I had a room with a sea view that was stunning and my own balcony. It's just like when you look at it on their website. Bright, airy, clean and free wifi which is a must for most people these days. The restaurant facilities were great and the staff were polite, professional and...

Great service, gorgeous view and OH MY GOD delicious food!!! This was one of the best vacations I ever had! It's a bit pricey but so worth it. In the evening there is lots of music and dancing on the terrace of the hotel. If you book this hotel, make sure you book half pension!

My family took an amazing trip to Italy for two weeks in late September. Hotel Rivera was not a part of our original plans, but after having a terrible experience at another Sorrento Hotel, we were able to talk with someone at Hotel Rivera who worked out an amazing last minute deal for us. We were three couples and they...
