The only reason I would not give this Hotel 5 out of 5 is because those who consider booking it, need to understand that the location would not be ideal for a lot of people. The location is nice, overlooking the Bay of Naples, but it's quite a walk from the centre of town. Also, much of the winding road you have to walk along to get to and from it has no pavements which can make it a little nervy with the traffic.
This of course can't really be blamed on those who run the hotel and work there. Everything else was excellent, and I have to say my experience of the staff there was all positive - very friendly, helpful and couldn't do enough for me. The room was always clean and comfortable

We still had trouble finding this place, EVEN THOUGH we had read other reviews saying the same thing AND we weren't going to let that happen. It did not show up on the GPS even though it has been there for some time. VERY STEEP AND NARROW road down to the place, especially since we had a van - but we made it there and back thanks to Bruno! Other than this everything was fabulous - YES, driving around the area is quite challenging but that adds much to our memories of the place. The hotel Rosmary is lovely, especially the garden with lemon trees and the view of the Naples gulf. We loved the restaurants just below our villa that were on the sea - and are missing them too!
Hotel staff excellent and helpful in all respects. Free hotel bus transportation to Sorrento Plaza. Food in restaurant good, a bit pricey but convenient. Only negative was the coffee but then we are "coffe snobs". Excellent swimming pool.

A beautiful property only a 5 minute drive from the town of Sorrento. The hilltop boutique hotel with beautiful views of the Bay of Sorrento is pleasing to the eye and senses. The property is perfectly manicured , the rooms are huge and tastefully decorated, the breakfast is served on a covered terrace with the same sea views as the rooms. Possibly the only negative point is that because of the size of the property and the fact that the reception area is in a separate building, one can wander around the gardens almost without seeing anyone. Maybe not really a negative if one desires a break from the hustle of nearby Sorrento.
Hotel is located 20 minute walk from the centre of town with a shuttle bus to and fro! Breakfast is plentiful and delicious! Hotel room spacious, clean and comfortable! Unfortunately view was requested but not granted and we overlooked a concrete wall! Overall pleasant stay!

We reserved a junior oceanview suite during our 20th Anniversary trip. The private furnished terrace could easily have accommodated 15 people. The room was enormous with a outrageous view of Mt. Vesuvius from the bed. The bathroom's double shower, complete with naked statute & wallfall, was deliteful Roman decadence. The restaurant's setting, selection, food and wine list were all excellant, with a very professional wait staff. The only negative was the front desk staff being somewhat indifferent. The hotel is a 10 to 15 minute walk to town, along a pleasant road with a gorgeous view. We would reccommend the La Tonnarella most highly.

We stayed in Settimo Cielo for 5 nights. Although we did not have a balcony room the picture windows gave panoramic views over the Bay of Naples to Vesuvius which were lovely. Could also watch the comings and goings in the marina Grande.
The breakfast, typically italian, was both plentiful and lots of variety.
The staff were very helpful with superb english.
Pool at bit cool but cannot blame hotel for that.
I agree with the comments about the towels and would have preferred fluffy towel rather than the linen, but again this is how things are in this part of Italy.
The location is not so good for those with walking or breathing difficulties being about 1/2 mile up a continual slope with very narrow (in parts) pavement. Lorries, buses and scooters are constant until late in the evening and the fumes on the road dreadful. Use taxis
Overall a great time, good food and ambiance - only downside the traffic.
