Arrived late due to flights but thanks to Villa Ketty, who arranged transfer, had an easy arrival and warm welcome. This is a family run hotel, but not one of those over oppressive family hotels, a welcoming genuine "want to help" types!
Our room was more than large enough for two adults and two kids, all having proper beds, not camp beds or pull outs. It had air conditioning that we didn't use because it had a mosquito screened window.
The location is just outside Vico Equense, a shortish walk but plenty of people from the hotel will drop you into town or collect you, and they never grumble, they just drop what they are doing and take you!
Vico Equense is a small to medium town, it has a few restaurants, including the "Pizza a Metro" one owned by the same people who own Villa Ketty, and enough shops etc. There is also a great ice cream / dessert shop called Gabrele which is fantastic and cheap! The town is less touristy than many others and has a nice relaxed vibe.
The train station is not that far from the hotel and allows cheap and quick travel to Sorrento and Naples and places in between.
We also decorated some pottery at the hotel and took it home free of charge, it was great fun and very relaxing!

My daughter was to be married in Sorrento and we wanted a hotel close by. Hotel Mary was a fantastic choice with its friendly and helpful staff. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the food was excellent. We were able to relax by the pool and visit several of the local cafes around the piazza which was only a short walk away.
There are not that many beaches that are accessible in this area, not to mention very private. This facility has its own beach and swim area not shared with the marina or docks like a lot of the others that we observed. Relaxation was completely achieved at the opening of a beach side umbrella. Cheers.

"Le Ancore is a great choice for staying in Vico Equense"
Fantastic experience. We were glad to have chosen it, and would definitely stay there again. The location was right near the water, at the marina. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was nice, plus it had a nice balcony looking out over the water. The breakfast was tasty and the coffee, as is of course more common than not being in Italy, was delicious.
We stayed at Grand Hotel Moon Valley from 8/22 - 8/31. All of the hotel staff was so nice & friendly from the moment we arrived. The room (seaside view) was a bit small but still comfortable for me, my husband & our 5 year old son. They quickly accomodated us by bringing a small bed into our room for my son to sleep in. The hotel has beautiful views & my son loved their swimmng pool. Also very close to train station (400 meters) which allowed us to easily get to Sorrento in minutes. Hotel also helped us book several tours to Capri, Pompeii & Vesuvius, & we were picked up & dropped off at hotel. Hotel Restaurant was good although their menu seemed a bit limited but they did allow you to order things not necessarily on the menu. Did I mention the friendly staff? Our vacation was great & I would definitely stay there again. We are from New Jersey , USA. Seems mostly everyone staying at hotel were Italian or British, but we always felt right at home.

A fantastic stay at a lovely little hotel. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful when required. The free shuttle was brilliant and we used it everyday meaning our hire car was a waste of money. Lol.
Local public transport was easy to use, easy to get to from the hotel via free shuttle. Very cheap too, Sorrento one way, Pompeii and Naples the other.
Perfect stay at the perfect little hotel. Photos on website do not give it justice. Even better than it looks!

Every room has a sea view and there are terraces with chairs and tables to take advantage of. The hotel is opposite the train station which is very convenient for travel to other places and it's also a short 5-7 minute walk to the (small) town centre. The public areas of the hotel are lovely. Each room has it's own bathroom, the bathrooms are slightly shabby but adequate. The staff are friendly and helpful. We had two rooms. In one room the air conditioning didn't work and there was no TV. The other room had a TV and a working A/C unit but it wasn't great, it was cooler to keep the window open, but remember, this is Italy and in Italy nothing works so it wasn't a great surprise to us! The breakfast was quite basic but adequate. Overall we enjoyed our stay here.
