The common areas of the hotel include a huge lobby, sitting area with comfortable couches and picture windows everywhere. The restaurant and bar area are at the top of a circular staircase and again make use of picture windows, often wide open to let in the bay breezes, with incredible views of the town and bay below. Vesuvius in the distance reminds you of eras gone by. A large pool and deck have comfortable pool chairs and by day, many visitors choose to spend the warm afternoons tanning and being served libations by the hotel staff.
One of my favorite things to do is enjoy a lunch of caprese and a pizzetta at one of the tables on the deck while gazing out at the spectacle below.
The hotel is about a 15 or 20 minute walk, down a cobble path to the city. But a shuttle bus operates on a regular schedule for those who wish to ride. The walk down is easy but the walk up is a chore.
The staff is superb. Lyla at the desk went out of her way to assist me when I had a family emergency at home. Tonino might possibly be the best bar tender in all of Italy. And Gianfranco, the manager treats his guests as if they are staying in his own home, which of course they are!
