Lovely hotel, very friendly staff always willing to help, very clean rooms, nothing to fault other than lunchtime service slow and lacking attention to detail,but this should not put anyone off. Beautiful terrace, i would definitely go backGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed at this hotel with friends for 5 nights at the end of a trip to Italy. The hotel is comfortable and in good condition.The hotel is situated some 1 mile from Sorrento town centre but there is a regular shuttle service there however last bus back is 22.50. We were later one night and caught a taxi back which cost us 20 Euros!! Saint Agnello […] rail station is some 10 minutes walk which gives great access to Pompeii (entrance outside Pompeii station) and Vesuvius ( bus leaves from outside Pompeii station) - you can leave your hire car in the car park!! There are numerous restaurants in close proximity to the the hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Kind and friendly staff very willing to help"
Staff were extremely friendly and couldn't do enough to make our stay and experience really great. he room was small, but had everything we needed. The outdoor sitting area and restaurant was fantastic and the pool,forums was the highlight. Well maintained and lovely to look at and swim in. Great hotel, I would go back.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely hotel, would definitely go back!"
This was a lovely, quaint, clean and friendly hotel. My partner and I couldn't fault it, we didn't have food in the evenings but dinner was gorgeous. The shuttle bus to Sorrento town saved us a fortune on taxis if you don't fancy the 20min walk. We would definitely go back :)Genuine Expedia guest review
"The Staff is the best part of this hotel"
Really friendly and helpful staff, hotel in good quiet location and walking distance of 20 mins to Sorrento and free shuttle bus runs frequently if you don't fancy the walk. Huge selection for breakfast buffet, very good. Bad point is having to pay 4 euros for a kettle and a few sachets of tea/coffee in your room each day, a kettle should be supplied […] as standard in a hotel that costs this much per night.

"Gezellig hotel, leuk zwembad"
Het hotel is gezellig en net, maar ligt wel een eindje van het centrum van sorrento. Er is een shuttle bus die je naar het centrum brengt. De kamers zijn klein, maar hebben alle comfort. Een minpunt is de weinige opbergruimte en er is geen mogelijkheid om je handdoek op te hangen als je een kamer zonder balkon hebt.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Tres bon hotel. Buffet du petit dejeuner avec du choix . Diner de qualité entrée, plat et dessert plus un buffet de crudités. Le personnel est tres agréable. La navette de l'hotel permet de se rendre rapidement dans le centre de sorrento, sinon 25 minutes à pieds.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Dejligt hotel med fin beliggenhef"
Dejligt hotel i passende størrelse, god beliggenhed, og fin service. Lidt små værelser, vær opmærksom på små senge og bed om supervisor værelser, hvis større ønskes. Personalet er meget serviceminded og yderst elskværdigt. Kommer gerne igen.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

L'hotel è posizionato in una zona tranquilla ma non lontana dal centro, il personale è squisito, soprattutto il giovane direttore Carlo che si è prodigato nel dispensare consigli e suggerimenti.

Het hotel is prima: zeer aardig en behulpzaam personeel, prima en goed onderhouden zwembad, voldoende ligstoelen en geen "gevecht" voor een stoel. Ontbijt was goed, avondeten redelijk standaard, geen overbodige keuze. In de buurt voldoende restaurants, goedkoop en kwalitatief goed. Bereikbaarheid zee is ook goed te doen, ongeveer 10 minuten lopen. Fors […] minpunt is het huren van de auto bij Hertz. Bij aankomst moet een fors bedrag aan extra premie betaald worden om te verzekeren tegen schade en diefstal. Was echt een onaangename verrassing en als je voor de balie staat en je hebt vooraf een auto gehuurd, dan kun je in feite niet meer kenbaar maken om de auto niet te huren. Je hebt immers vooraf een bepaald bedrag in het totaalpakket betaald. Ik vond dit eigenlijk chantage en hoop dat jullie organisatie een klacht indient bij Hertz. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Utsikten över Neapelbukten saknades"
Tillbringade 3 dagar på Caravel i slutet av juli 2012. Hotellet var trevligt och välskött men rummen var små. Området är välkänt men vi saknade utsikten över Neapelbukten när man promenerade till Sorrento. Baden var en positivt överraskning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a 4 stars, but excellent staff and service!!"
First impression was really disappointment! The Caravel hotel has nothing to do with a 4 star: location is correct but far from Sorrento and the walk down there isn"t at all nice, rooms are basic and the pool area is very small. That said, the kindness of the hotel staff (all of them) changed our mind and we will keep an excellent memory of our stay. […] We had chosen the half board and breakfast and dinners were really excellent: good food and wide choice, very good service. If you take these elements into account, this hotel is very good value and you should go! If you need the exclusivity and comfort of 4/5 stars, choose another location.

"En bit från centrum, men hotellet har buss"
Ligger 15-20 min promenad från sorrento centrum, men hotellet har en buss som är gratis och går ett antal gånger om dagen. Frukosten var ok, lunchen ännu bättre men middag på kvällen rekomenderas inte. I övrigt väldigt fräscht.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Das Hotel war super. Die Freundlichkeit, die Herzlichkeit und die Bereitschaft waren Super!Genuine Expedia guest review
Jätte fint hotellet som ligger ca 15 minuters promenad från centrala Sorrento, det tar ca tio minuter att promenera till pendeltågstationen och fem minuter att promenera till havet. Med pendeltåget tar det en timme till Neapel och där tar det bara några minuter att gå till tågen som går till Rom, praktiskt. Vårt rumm hade stor balkong som vätte mot […] havet.

Very good We had a standard room with view towards the mountains, without a balcony. The bed was big and comfortable, otherwise the room was rather small. Very clean. Safebox. Comfortable and clean bathroom. Air conditioning doesn't work in May, but it wasn't necessary. Excellent breakfast. Good and stable wifi, but you can connect one device at a […] time, so we had to choose between the android cellphone and the notebook. Several English news and film channels. The TV set in our room was old, thick and worn-out. This was inconsistent with the room description, which promises a flat TV. Nice, smiling and helpful personnel. The pool and its surroundings seemed rather limited. Taking into account that there is no beach in Sant Agnello or Sorrento, this could be a disappointment, but we didn't care about it due to the weather. Quiet street near the sea side, but few restaurants in close vicinity. Close to the bus and the Circumvesuviana train station. Shuttle bus to Sorrento 12 times a day. In total, a very good hotel and a very good stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"un très bon rapport qualité-prix"
Un hôtel à recommander, avec un personnel à l'écoute. A environ 1/4 d'heure des transports en commun pour Naples.L'éloignement du centre de Sorrente est compensé par un service de navette fréquent et gratuit au pied de l'hôtel. Une mention spéciale pour la 1/2 pension qui propose chaque jour un choix entre plusieurs entrées et plusieurs plats.Genuine Expedia guest review
"alto rapporto qualità prezzo"
E' un hotel confertevole, molto vicino a Sorrento, che può essere anche raggiunta in 15 minuti a piedi, poiché dista appena 1,5 Km. L'hotel offre comunque un servizio navetta per Sorrento a titolo gratuito. Colazione abbondante e personale molto cortese e gentile.Genuine Expedia guest review
"QUIET LOCATION; GOOD SERVICE; ONE OR TWO LET-DOWNS"
10/21/14 rogerdundee Watford England
This hotel caters for many "package" holiday makers, and is good value for the area. It is in a quiet side-street, near to a few nice restaurants, and just a 15-20 minute walk into the centre of Sorrento (with a frequent courtesy bus service also). Staff were helpful and friendly, and restaurant staff very attentive. But breakfasts were uninspiring and the same every day - just not very exciting nor varied. Rooms which face North have a great view of Vesuvius, but of course do not get any sun - our balcony was permanently in the shade. This may be a good thing, as friends told us that their south-facing room soon got overheated. The a/c is switched off in October, irrespective of the weather. Our room - allegedly one of the medium-class category - had a very large bed, but not really enough storage space for two people, and the shower room had no horizontal surfaces on which to place toiletries etc. There is a pleasant bar/café serving reasonably-priced drinks and good coffee. Free Wi-Fi works throughout the building, and there are plenty of power points in the rooms to re-charge mobile phones etc. In short, this hotel offers good value in a reasonable location, but is let down by one or two aspects which could easily be improved..
"4 Star Rating???? We didn't think so."
10/12/14 RoversReview London, England
We stayed at Hotel Caravel which is a 20 minute walk from the centre of Sorrento as part of an Amalfi Coast (Pompeii) holiday package. We were promised a twin bedded double but finished up with what was little more than a single room with a double bed. Although the bathroom had been refitted and furniture in the bedroom upgraded it was small and cramped with insufficient space to hang up all our clothing. The shower which was over the bath with a glass screen was downright dangerous because there was a curved raised section of the bath that made it very difficult to stand and exit from the shower. It is also worth mentioning that we had the minor but annoying inconvenience of a colony of ants as co-guests which continually travelled from the bathroom window around the top of the wall tiles in the bathroom with stragglers running around the hand-basin. We had a reasonable sized balcony but this only gave us a view of the back of the hotel car park and a glimpse of Vesuvius if we strained our necks and looked through the trees! In fairness the position of the hotel in the back streets makes it impossible to give any worthwhile view except of the pool area for about 10 rooms. On the plus side the food was pretty good and the efficiency of the restaurant staff was outstanding given the number of coach parties that stopped over during our 7 day stay but at times it was a 'bun fight' at breakfast time to get out of the hotel on time for our pre-booked excursions. The décor of the hotel is drab and very dated and really needs modernising if they want to justify the claim to be a 4-star hotel. The swimming pool area was very nice but oh boy was the water cold! So much so that hardly anyone plucked up the courage to use it despite excellent weather (26 degrees). In our view the Hotel Caravel is by European standards no more than a 3-star hotel and if we were to visit the area again we would look for a higher standard of hotel, accepting that we would have to pay more for the privilege!
"Good base to explore Sorrento"
10/12/14 George H Crail, United Kingdom
Pros: Very helpful reception staff. Cons: Breakfast would benefit from fresh fruit salad. The minibus had two big gaps in its timetable. Air condtioning was good, but had to be full on or off. Location: St Agnelo was very busy (though the hotel was in a tranquil side streeet); we did eat locally, but Sorrento had a much better choice of restaurants Very clean but cramped room, good public areas, and useful free minibus into Sorrento (but which often left Sorrento earlier than timetabled).
"Greate hotel for ones holiday"
We had a pleasant stay in Caravel hotel in every aspect. Thanks to a greate stuff and full 4 stars!!! Room and breakfast, information supply by the stuff, location in a beautiful street, such kind people around and responsible hosting
"Excellent Hotel and Staff"
10/09/14 Terry R Peterborough, United Kingdom
We had never been to this area before and like others, wondered what the hotel was like, we never needed to worry, it was excellent, the rooms were very comfortable, the breakfast was plentiful and varied, the pool was good and the shuttle bus which took us into the centre each day was great I would recommend this hotel to anyone
"Wonderful location and fantastic staff!"
10/06/14 JL0376 Madison, Wisconsin
This hotel went above and beyond-we suggest putting it in your top 5 options for the Sorrento area! The front desk staff was incredible and so friendly! For our honeymoon we spent 3 days here and we're very happy! We made the mistake of renting a car in Naples for coastal driving, but by the time we arrived at the hotel we had already decided to return the car early. So all our plans had changed and we needed ideas/tours - basically a lot of help. The front desk staff found an amazing all-day tour of Pompeii/Herculaneum that we took and also set up a wonderful private driver for the Amalfi Coast. Really, perfect days! They also happily answered all our questions and even prepared a small packed breakfast for us when we checked out at 5:30am to catch a bus to Rome. The bus ticket website was only in Italian so one of the staff offered to help me purchase the tickets online - so easy! I really can't say enough - they were awesome!!! Now, the hotel was of course very nice too. Situated on a quant, quiet street (downtown Sorrento is loud and busy!) a quick 20 min walk or shuttle bus to/from Sorrento. The pool area is very pleasant with ample chairs. There is a small car park for a fee of 10€ a day. The breakfast is quite large with meats, cheese, eggs, breads, coffee, etc. very nice. Our room (308) was a wonderful corner room with a large balcony and a terrific view of Mt. Vesuvius and the water. It was quiet, which we very much appreciate. The room was clean and large! Our only complaints - the bed (the mattress wasn't super comfortable, but a nice larger size bed) and the Internet (very slow especially at night-my husband would have given 4 starts because of this issue), but we just headed out for a walk instead - wonderful walking streets. Our experience was great and we highly recommend this hotel for your travels!
"Nice accommodation outside Sorrento"
10/05/14 Premblue Tamworth, United Kingdom
Had a room on the 2nd floor paid for upgrade to comfort room from standard room. Overall enjoyed our stay the only negative was we went half board and the evening meal always seemed to be served lukewarm never hot. Other than that I would recommend the hotel.
10/05/14 mrhappy53 derbyshire
This is the first time we have stayed at this hotel, but the second time we have stayed in Sant' Agnello. The hotel is small and very friendly, the room we had was large with ample space, the bathroom was more than adequate ( the only comment about the bathroom is that it could do with a shower curtain instead of a shower screen as the floor became very wet ). The room was on the fourth floor and had a small balcony. The hotel restaurant was waiter service and the food Italian style, they also served food at lunch time (the pizzas are lovely but very big, hence we had half each ). There is a bar and the price of drinks although a little high, compare with prices in sorrento. There is a free courtesy bus to and from Sorrento bookable at reciption although it is walkable in about 20 mins. We would highly recommend this hotel.
"Perfect Hotel in Quiet Location"
10/05/14 Mark F
Stayed in Hotel Caravel in July 2014.The hotel is located in Sant Agnello, I couldn't advise people more to stay in San't Agnello as it is away from the hustle and bustle of Sorrento and has lots of nice restaurants and bars for Sunset. We booked the superior room with a balcony, the balcony area was spectacular in the evenings for a glass of wine and Sunset. The pool area is very relaxing during the day and quiet and the staff are all very helpful. The Hotel Room could do with some updating and their is small bit of a package holiday feel initially but the hotel grows on you and you realise this is standard in some Hotels in Italy, The Hotel is value for your money. The breakfast has so much to offer that every morning we woke up we were quick to get to the dining room, the cold meats and croissants are very good. We decided not to go half board and glad as lots of choice of restaurants in the area and it appears you had to order your dinner at breakfast if you went halfboard. I must say all in all , Hotel Caravel was value for money, beautiful and quiet and in the perfect location to relax. A lot of people appear to not be happy about the 20 mins walk to Sorrento but the Hotel shuttle bus is quite frequent and the walk is enjoyable in the evenings, plus you may find yourself loving Sant Agnello too much that you wont go to Sorrento.
"Newmarket Holidays via Bournemouth Airport"
09/29/14 poolekiteman Wareham, United Kingdom
Hotel was fine with friendly staff, nice pool (but chilly), modern, clean rooms and aircon - food was a bit bland (half board) but plenty of restaurants in town... hotel provide free shuttle bus into Sorrento drop off & pickup is at the bus station (just 50 yards from the nearest Limoncello factory)... hotel is sited on a quiet side street off the main drag - nearby pavements are a joke for accessibility, with narrow uneven walkway and trees or lamp posts plonked in the middle! Drop kerbs are also hard to find, so if you have any trouble walking, take a good stick (and maybe a friend to lend an arm). There is a pleasant front garden with comfy chairs, and sun loungers around the pool - solarium terrace on 4th and 5th floor if you are a real sun worshipper - magnificent views from 4th & 5th floor terraces, Bay of Naples in front, and massive hills inland. Free WIFI but internet connection very slow in daytime - get up very early to upload photos to Facebook. Naples airport 1 1/4 hours away along mixed road (some autostrada some VERY twisty cliffside road)
