Friendly and a great base for a holiday
We went with my mum (in her 70s) and my son (11) for a long weekend. We read some of the negative reviews and having been are surprised people only gave one star. We did have an issue with the room but this was resolved in 24 hours, and we received a lovely apology and wine. The rep from Tui was helpful in explaining the problem. I think expectations for four stars are sometimes unrealistic. Our room was large enough to access the desk, wardrobe and keep our luggage. We had a double and single and were very comfortable. I loved the ‘faded glamour’ of the decor, very pretty and a good background for photos. Bottled water was in the mini fridge and a bit of room to store eg a can of lemonade or chocolate. The shower was great, powerful and a handy washing line meant trunks could dry over the bath. Lots of towels provided and shower gel/caps. Food was plentiful and varied enough for three vegetarians. Although my son lived on the ‘best chips ever’ at lunch, fresh pancakes at breakfast and pizza slices in the evening. Loads of fresh fruit available. Very surprised at the reviews mentioning own brand soft drinks - for us going away is about trying local varieties. There was Pepsi and then local varieties of fizzy drinks. Pool bar served cocktails and other alcohol throughout the day, plus ham toasted panini and glasses of ice cream in a few flavours. The pool felt safe - visible and with steps either side although no real shallow end. Definitely a small ‘fun’ pool, don’t expect to get your 50 lengths in each day. Lots of laughing kids, floats and splashing around. People did wait for it to open to bag a subbed which was a bit tiresome (we didn’t) and sometimes we couldn’t find a lounger. Lots of places to sit in the shade around the hotel away from the pool. All of the staff are smiley, friendly and happy to let you practice your holiday Italian although most people speak good English (and probably other languages). I am going to suggest returning to my husband so we can do some of the excursions and stay a bit longer so I would recommend staying here. Location - based in a small town (turn right from the hotel and there you are) with small supermarkets, bars and shops. The beach is about a thirty minute walk and accessed either via a private set up or by walking through the cliff - be aware that the walk back up is steep and tiring. The ‘free’ beach is just a paved jetty with no shore or shade and steps into water. I wouldn’t do that again. It’s a twenty minute walk to Sorrento or a free shuttle - use that if you have small kids or prams as the pavement is very narrow in places.More
Stayed July and couldn't fault staff or hotel, room was adequate, bathroom bit outdated and was a bit of an obstacle course to get in the shower, lay out was all wrong, but it was only a base, had a balcony as such to small for 2 to sit out on it unless we put table in the room, enjoyed my view, could just see the sea and watching the locals going about there daily business. The hotel is situated ideally for any sight seeing and we enjoyed the walks into Sorrento, road is extremely busy but by the end of the holiday i was a professional at crossing the roads in Italy. Food was brilliant some days and okay , not a big issue, unfortunately the hotel will never be able to satisfy every ones tastes, i actually do not like a bbq, not the hotels fault, so i took advantage of this and we tried a few local restaurants, highly recommend this... Trips we did independently, really cheap, and i was surprised at how easy it is to get around on all there public transport . Now the pool, the stories that pool man could tell....unfortunately you will always get the ones that put towels down then disappear for the day, i didn't queue up every morning as we were out for the morning/day but on the days i did go down before the guy could get the rope down 2 people were already sprawled out on the ground trying to climb over the rope, other occasion, causally walking up not really deciding where to sit and towels went flying over my head to land on 4 loungers, best laugh was the family did not turn up till 13-30, and in all that time families that walked round looking for for beds, happened a few times and i think it is something the hotel should monitor, i have actually been to hotels where the pool guy watches and if you don't turn up in an hour towels were removed and taken to reception, if going out for a few hours get a bed when you come back, that's what myself and a lot of other guests did. On an evening we would go out for walks, locals were friendly and there is some nice bars /restaurants of the main streets. Over all i cannot fault the hotel or location is was ideal for us and we had no problems , staff were friendly and dinner/ evening meals plates were never left on your table staff were constantly clearing them. one point is if you like a cuppa when you first get up take a kettle &cups as there is none in the room, i had read it on a few reviews so i took one but i did hear a few complain about it. Would i recommend definitely Would i go back, not at the moment ,but that is because there is to many other places i want to visit and see before i start to return to places i have already visited.More
Just spent a week at this hotel and this is my honest opinion of the place. I have stayed in many 4 star hotels and this hotel is certainly not a 4 star. Our room was adequate with a nice balcony. The food in my opinion was terrible same dishes more or less everyday. Food not covered at breakfast .The BBQ nights where better and there was a better atmosphere you felt as though you were on holiday. I appreciate its Italy but pizza, pasta, mozzarella and chips everyday! It would have been nice to have some grilled fish or chicken with nice salads. Drinks served in plastic beakers at lunchtime in an area away from the pool is very poor in my opinion. Now the pool area this is not adequate for the amount of guests. Not enough sun beds or deck chairs yes deck chairs but the less able person unable to get down to a sun bed would have appreciated a deck chair. Only 10 umbrellas for the whole pool, half broken you had to use a spoon to hold the umbrella up! Now the queuing for the sun beds, the pool opened at 9am you had to be early to get a bed so there we were setting our alarms the night before a long with everyone else or you had no chance of a bed. The funniest thing I saw was as soon as the rope went down one man launched 4 towels one after the other onto 4 sun beds. It must have been his second week, he was brilliant at it! That was the high light of the day for me. We did visit the Amalfi coast, and Capri well worth the money and it was nice to get away from the hotel and have a walk into Sorrento. Would I go back to this hotel definitely not.More
I’m going to tell you everything you need to know about this hotel...
It’s three star, not four, because we got there very late and the hotel was just weird, they said eat downstairs because we missed dinner. There was a room they called the red room (it was so ugly everyone I spoke to about it they thought it was ugly). They prepared some leftover food. The bread was like chewing tyres, no desert except fruit, mixed tables so you didn’t know who you were sitting with. When we got to our very dated room, the bathroom was tiny and horrid, when you go in the shower the water leaks everywhere. The next morning we had our first breakfast in this hotel. As soon as we got in, we sat down on a table that looked perfectly free. However, a waiter barked at us “SOMEONE SITTING THERE, ASK FIRST!“ That was incredibly rude and there was no sign saying wait to be seated etc... He angrily moved us to another table and a few minutes later he BARKED at another table 🤭🤬🤬🤬😡😠. Not OK. So my mum told a senior member of staff and she was very nice and apologetic about it. When we went to the pool we never managed to get a sun bed because there simply aren’t enough. The pool was OK. Lunch outside wasn’t bad.... Oh and I forgot to mention the ‘balcony’. For a start there was nowhere to even walk - the two chairs and a table fill up the entire space, but even if they weren’t there it would still be extremely small. On the plus side, the evening barbecue dinners outside were delicious...More
Good All Inclusive hotel
Spent a very enjoyable week at the Parco del Sole. The hotel was very clean and well kept in the majority of areas but maybe just a few areas needed upgrading. Didn't impact the holiday. Food was pretty good especially breakfast which had a very good selection. You could have lunch and afternoon tea before eating in the evening. Again fairly good selection. A lot of fish if you like fish. Two bbq evenings where you eat outside. A limited amount of entertainment. The aquarobics in the pool could have been done with a bit of enthusiasm. Not sure if he spoke English. Staff were all friendly except one bar man who never cracked a smile. The room was ok but wasn't inclined to go out on the balcony as it was not a very good outlook......mainly buildings and parked cars. All in all good value for the money and an enjoyable holiday.More
