Hotel Rivage is just a few steps from the pedestrianised historic centre of Sorrento. From the small rooftop pool you'll have great views over the Bay of Naples towards Mount Vesuvius. The bar's conveniently nearby, so if you fancy a poolside drink the friendly staff will be more than happy to arrange that for you.

The restaurant's just beside the pool with chairs and tables sprawled out onto the panoramic terrace. We loved sitting out here, enjoying the mild summer evenings and the tasty Neapolitan cuisine. The fresh seafood was a real treat!

The simple rooms have tiled floors and contemporary light wood furniture and some have balconies. Overall, we found this hotel to be a great base for exploring Sorrento and the nearby sights.

Looking inwards, you’ll find a town with a historic centre of cobbled streets and craft shops. Wander the shady lemon groves of the Museum Correale, catch a concert in the Franciscan Cloisters, or hunt out a bottle of freshly made limoncello liqueur.

Sorrento doubles as an ideal base for day trips along the dramatic Campania coast. Naples, the Amalfi Coast, and the islands of Capri and Ischia are all within easy reach.
