Alternatively, you could rent a family apartment or villa, if you don’t want to risk the little tykes disturbing other guests (or being disturbed by someone else’s children!).
Boutique hotels in Sorrento
Small, stylish and sometimes a bit quirky, boutique hotels in Sorrento are great for those who want to stay somewhere a little different.
Sorrento Flats has a fully equipped communal kitchen, offers a buffet breakfast, and has a variety of rooms (plus an apartment and villa) decorated in white with a bright accent colour. It also has a partnership with a local wellness centre and a central location.
Maison La Minervetta is a coastal hotel with clifftop views of the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. It’s got a pool, terrace, bar, jacuzzi, free WiFi, it’s adult-only – and did we mention the awesome views?!
Hotel Palazzo Guardati is a boutique hotel in the centre of Sorrento with warm browns, soft colours, creams, marble bathrooms, parquet floors, chandeliers, and a rooftop terrace with pool. Yeah, there’s a pool on the roof.
All-inclusive hotels in Sorrento
For breakfast, lunch and dinner at no extra cost, then an all-inclusive Sorrento hotel might be the way for you to go.
If you’d prefer to sort out lunch yourself, then half-board, which includes breakfast and an evening meal, could be the right option for you.
For more dining freedom, and usually a cheaper price, bed and breakfast (B&B) might be best. If you want total freedom when it comes to your meals, room-only or self-catering might work best.
When choosing your board type, consider what plans you have while you’re holidaying in Sorrento.
If you don’t plan on straying too far away from the hotel, then all-inclusive might suit you. But if you’d like to explore the city, Bay of Naples and Pompeii, then a more flexible board type would probably be better. Also, keep your budget in mind, as the less inclusive options will usually be cheaper.
