We stayed at the Bellavista Francischiello for four nights at the end of our tour and it was the perfect place to relax and unwind. Excellent facilities, clean and comfortable with very friendly staff. Beautiful views out over the bay from our room, even though it was one of the more economical ones available. Also has excellent access to nearby Sorrento and surrounding area with a regular bus right outside the hotel...even if getting your head around the timetable can be something of a challenge initially! No trouble with road noise thanks to double-glazed windows, so don't let the proximity on the map put you off. All-in-all a very enjoyable stay, as it was still pleasantly warm even in early october.
I stayed 4 nights in this lovely hotel. I was a little worried on arriving at the hotel that it was a little distance from the centre of Sorrento, but there was no need as there is an excellent shuttle bus service that the hotel provides and there is also the public bus service that stops right outside the hotel gates. I soon realised how I had made the right decision in choosing this hotel as firstly the views were fantastic, the tranquillity of it all as well, away from all the hustle and bustle of Sorrento. It was lovely to come back after a full day of travelling and sit it the gardens or by the pool and have a drink and relax. The staff were brilliant, I could not get over how helpful they were, they went out of their way for us. The only downside (and it is so small) is that the dinner we had at the hotel was a little on the poor side, it seemed a little tasteless. Breakfasts were great, lots to choose from. I would highly recommend the restaurant the hotel recommended where the owner comes and collects you and will then obviously take you back to the hotel again afterwards. It was an excellent meal ! I would highly recommend this hotel and should I ever return to Sorrento I would certainly choose the Grand Due Golfi to stay in again.
Traditionally Mediterranean property overlooking the Bay of Salerno and Bay of Naples, seven kilometers from Sorrento …More
The hotel was situated in the hills above Sorrento with beautiful views. For us it was ideal as we prefer to be a little away from 'busy'. Sorrento is 5km by road but there is a footpath from the hotel to the town, steep but can be done in about 25mins. Recommend bus back up! If not dining at the hotel the village of St Agata is a 5 minute walk through the grounds and has a number of restaurants and bars.
The staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful. We felt very welcome and very comfortable during our stay. We were booked into Villa Romita in the hotel grounds but on arrival were given a room in the main building. As we were very happy with our room we didn't bother to query this.
Overall a very nice place to stay.
I can't really faulter the hotel as it was amazing value for money, with lovely views and friendly staff. The hotel is a little out of sorrento, but the buses are frequent (every 20-30 min) and the journey only takes about 20 minutes. The bus costs about 1.30 each way, and you can take the train to major sights so there is really no need to hire a car (we didn't bother using ours). There is parking near the hotel but it is limited as it isn't exclusively for the hotel (there is an off road car park just infront and below the hotel, and the option of street parking). There is a lovely harbour and bay in massa lubensa about a 10 minute walk from the hotel, however it is an extremely Steep road (the walk back was far less pleasant). All in all I would definitely stay at la primavera again!
