The food made by Anna Maria was amazing! It was by far one of the best meals that we had during our vacation. The views were also nice, however for the price we would have liked to stay in a hotel closer to town. When we were booking our room on booking.com the hotel quoted us 65 euro/night. Then, when we were checking out on our final day we were given a bill for 90 euro per night. When I asked the man at the desk he just said that the 65 euro is the "booking fee" and the 90 euro was the additional cost of the room. Not very professional in my opinion! Another thing that we didn't really appreciate was the "shuttle service". There is a schedule for the summer but in the winter/off season it does not run regularly and it's quite disorganized. Finally, there is no internet at the hotel dispite what it says on booking.com
The room was small but the views over the bay are great. The family who run the hotel are delightful. The best part of Villa Pane is the food. we have visited the country at least twice a year for 15 years and this is the first time at this hotel. We can safely say that this is some of the best food we have ever had in Italy. Worth visiting just for the pleasure of fresh and tasty gourmets eating and fantastic value to boot! the top floor lacked sound proofing. everything was audible from every room
Not so much a B&B or hotel but a home away from home. Host, Anna-Maria and her sons, Jean Luigi and Toni went out of their way to make our stay memorable and were genuinely eager to please. Unfortunately, we did not have dinner at Villa Pane but according to other guests the food is excellent. As it is situated quite high in the hills they do operate a free shuttle at set times each day to and from town. It took my wife and I (both the other side of 55) about 25 minutes to walk down the road into town and there are a couple of short cuts. Walking back will take considerably longer...thanks Jean Luigi for that lift back! Overall, a wonderful place and one we would certainly choose again. There are no restaurants (other than Villa Pane) or shops nearby but consider this a small price to pay to stay in this little gem.
the views from the room were excellent. breakfast was filling and very tasty. nothing
Proximity to the town and good transport links. I also liked having individual cabins as opposed to staying in a hotel. There were a lot of hidden extras such as having to pay extra for the A/C sunbeds by the pool and even to have the room cleaned!
Very friendly and helpfull staff, Only a short walk into Sorrento but far enough away to avoid the late night noise and scooters. The hotel bar and resturant are good value and quite a bit cheaper than in sorrento. A great base for exploring this part of italy with the train station only 10 Mins walk away. Possibly not the best accomodation for less mobile guests as it is quite a steep walk back up the hill from Sorrento, however the hotel does provide a shuttle bus several times a day. All in all great value and i would definitely stay again.
Cosy garden, like balsam for my soul to relax in the hammock surrounded by lemon trees. Big plus for the veranda and access to a kitchen. The house kept cool, no need of A/C. Nice staff, willing to give tourist information. Upphill from the town and the sea, about 20 min walk. All extra costs if you want to have the house cleaned, towel changed and so on.
Nothing The accommodation was dark and claustaphobic. The guests were charged to use a sunbed around the pool the quality of snacks were poor and over priced and the family owners unwelcoming.
The self catering bungalows were great value for money - although small - they were excellent for us staying as a family with two children (age 7 & 5) and gave us the flexibilty of small kitchen facilities. The swimming pool was superb & very very clean. Beautiful setting - and the walk into Sorrento was not too bad at all - despite other comments saying it was - my 5 & 7 year old managed it!!
Very good location for access to Sorrento and exploring the area and very good value for money compared to other hotels in the area. Hotel staff were friendly. It's credentials for self catering are limited by a very small kitchen area and no indoor table and chairs. Also, the bungalows are very dark inside.
We felt like we were home after three days there. The staff was really trying to make us feel that way. We ate breakfast and dinner there also. They had a "party" there one night. Nothing
swimming pool area fee to have room cleaned on leaving
fabulous location within easy walking disance of shops and coast but far enough from the hustle and bustle of the resort. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Very 'laid back' atmosphere. We felt very confident in letting the children walk around the complex. Cost of sun beds were expensive
El hotel es precioso y las habitaciones enormes, con todos los detalles. Magnífico desayuno buffet. No cuenta con buenas comunicaciones de transporte público, además de que hay caminar por una carretera con cierto peligro. No es cómodo si no se tiene vehículo propio.
La piscina con los tubos y las instalaciones para los niños. Ideal para ir con niños. Que pone 4 estrellas y yo diría que es un establecimiento de 3 estrellas.
Ubicación, bungalow No servicio de limpieza,instalaciones de los70
Relación calidad precio adecuada. Interesante para niños: les encantan las colchonetas, los toboganes y el ping pong. Buena situación para visitar la zona, aunque bajar a la playa es para "atletas" La piscina es divertida con los toboganes, pero resulta pequeña
- Clean Rooms - Most used word was "Sorry". For not working WLAN, for missing bread, cheese, salami, ... at breakfast table, for rooms without windows, for .... each day the same. Staff was more into chatting amongst themselves then serving guests. And they can become pretty nasty, when you want to cancel and move out early. As the is no automatically "sea view" from your room. Even, if named so. As there are rooms with NO windows at all. Would not stay again.
Preciosa terraza donde se desayuna, con maravillosas vistas de la bahia de Napoles.Personal del hotel amable. Dificil de encontrar. Un poco alejado de la ciudad, con una horrible carretera llena de curvas. La zona de aparcar que tiene el hotel es de muy dificil acceso.
