"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.

Great staff, genuinely friendly staff happy to have a real conversation. Good food, garden terrace for pleasant drinks after a long day touristing... Just one kilometer from Sorrento center makes this a quiet place to stay.. great bar / resturant at the bottom of the road with good staff and a view of Naples bay and a shuttle bus if you dont want to […] walk!

"Not bad at all and lovely staff"
Nice hotel. Didn't have the wow factor but very clean and helpful staff made the stay very comfortable. Good food and nice breakfast. Was a long walk from Sorrento centre though and no sea views. Could have done with more minibus runs and maybe a minibus to the station would have helped and saved time and money. Thank you for a lovely stay though and […] we would go back :) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel - breakfast service could be better"
Very clean hotel - bar staff very helpfull. Rooms a bit snug for an 8 day stay - just some hooks on the wall to hang up towels would help. Not enough storage space. Breakfast was running buffet - collect everything yourself. Including your own teas and coffees. Had to go up and down 8 little steps to get the breakfast - so be warned for anyone who struggles […] with stairs - you have no option. The tables were already half laid up for dinner service so always came in and struggled to find a table which was a bit annoying. The 'english' bit of the breakfast needs improving. The scrambled egg nor bacon cooked for long enough and only frankfurter sausages served. So this could truly be improved. Everything else about the breakfast was fine. Reception staff helpful. Enjoyed the hotel - if the storage space in the rooms could be sorted simply - hooks in the bathroom to hang up cosmetic bags and wet towels would help. We would have reused our towels more had we been able to dry them. Why not add a little washing line which retracts into the wall across the bath area - that would help.

We stayed at Hotel Caravel in September. All the Staff were very helpful and friendly. We chose a superior room because I had seen reviews that the standard rooms were on the small side. We were given a triple room, a very good size, with a superking sized bed (and a single) a reasonable sized bathroom and a balcony with a veiw of Velsuvius. We had […] half board and the food and table service was very good. For dinner there was a choice of starters, mains and sweets which you choose at breakfast. It is a good walk to Sorrento but the courstesy bus runs fairly regularly and not too far to walk to the Circumvescia Train station to go to to main tourist spots.

"REALLY friendly hotel"
All of the staff in Hotel Caravel were very friendly and helpful- including the cleaner who even helped us with our italian pronunciation! I think this is the friendliest place I have ever stayed. It is about 15 minutes walk from the centre of Sorrento but they run a free bus too and from the centre regularly. Would definitely recommend.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent Hotel - good location for exploring"
We stayed in Hotel Caravel the last week in July and first week in August 2011 and found it lovely and relaxing, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The pool area and gardens were very clean and well maintained, with the pool cleaned every morning, plenty of sunbeds and parasols for everyone, there is also a sun terrace on the 4th and 5th […] floor. We were B&B and breakfast was plentiful and a wide choice to suit most, again staff lovely and the food was replenished frequently. We had lunch some days at the hotel and this was also good quality, we didn't have dinner so cannot comment. Would recommend this Hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"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 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.

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
"Excellent Hotel Caravel, Sant Agnello, Sorrento"
We stayed at this very nice hotel a week on July 2011 and we were very pleased with the room and the hotel service in general. We had only bed and breakfast. The breakfast was maybe more directed to British guests and we would have liked to see also some vegetables (tomatoes, cucamber, salads etc.) on the buffet, but otherwise it was just great and […] the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful!! We also booked one excursion from the hotel and it was really great! Pool area was also super great and the shuttle bus to Sorrento worked really well!!

Underbar pool, bra frukost, mycket trevlig och hjälpsam personal. Bussen gick till Sorrento 12 ggr per dag, passade inte tiden gick det utmärkt att gå de två kilomerterna. Vi hade ett frächt trebäddsrum på första våningen, med "lätt" havsutsikt, kommer man högre upp kan man säkert få kanonutsikt. Vi gick inte ner till stranden, cementbryggorna och priser […] avskräckte. Åkte istället båttur, med bad utanför Capri och valfritt stopp i Amalfi eller Positano.

We have just returned from a holiday in Sorrento staying at Hotel Caravel, booked as part of a package through Thomas Cook. What a fantastic hotel! Spotlessly clean, with good sized rooms and air conditioning. We didn't have a balcony room but the view from our room was stunning nevertheless. The hotel is in an ideal location. Situated in St Agnello, it is a fifteen minute walk to the town centre, or you can make use of the regular courtesy bus to and from town. We never used the bus, preferring to walk. It thus provides the best of both worlds: easy access to the lively town centre, but a bit quieter too. The hotel has lovely grounds - a pool area and separate seating area where you can relax on comfy chairs and couches. Food is great. We were half board and really impressed by the quality of the food, and the choice. For breakfast there was a good mix - cooked breakfast; fruit; croissants; continental style. For evening meals there were at least 3 choices for each course - there was never an evening when the food was not delicious. However, the most outstanding feature for us was the staff. Each and every person was friendly, approachable, helpful and efficient. Genuinely lovely people who made the stay really enjoyable, Would we go back? Without a shadow of a doubt! It's top of our list for next year.
"Friendly,, Happy, Professional Hotel"

I would return to this hotel over and over, my wife has food allergies and they could not do enough to help make our stay perfect. All staff members are very courteous and helpful even down to being local tour guides when you need advice on places to visit. The free shuttle bus into Sorrento is a great asset to visitors, although it can be walked in 20 mins and is a flat even route, no 1 in 4 hills to climb!. I agree that the rooms could benefit from updating but they are spotless and the hotel represents great quality and value for money.

Just come back from a fabulous stay at this hotel. The hotel is spotless. We booked a twin room that slept 3 adults. This was a good size, had air conditioning and we had a nice private balcony. Our room was 125. From the balcony you could see the swimming pool and also the orange trees. We had free wifi included and this always worked well which pleased our son. The staff at this hotel are excellent. They are always happy to give you advice and they are all so friendly. We had half board and we found the meals very good. Breakfast was very good too, plenty of choices. Evening meal there was always about 4 choices for each course, starter main meal and dessert. All very good portions and very tasty. Again the restaurant staff are lovely,so helpful and always smiling. The views from the roof terraces should not be missed. It was nice to have the option of the free hotel shuttle bus into Sorrento. We used it when we went into Sorrento at night but during the day we walked in. Took a leisurely 20-30 minutes, stopping for picture opportunities overlooking the Bay of Naples. We all loved this hotel and would definitely go back again.
"Comfortable and peaceful stay"
07/21/14 kiwitravellernew London, United Kingdom
We stayed for one week early last September as part of a package deal which included a late night transfer from Naples airport. The room was a little dated and on the small side but clean and comfortable with peaceful nights sleep. We had the half board option which was reasonably priced. The meals were different each night and served by uniformed waiters but the quality of food could have been better. The best were the pasta dishes. The breakfast was not that interesting, once again lacking in quality and also selection. There was no fresh fruit. The seating arrangement was such that on the first day, guests are allocated a table for the whole stay which they shared with another couple who arrived on the same day. This may suit some people but if you wanted privacy or did not want to converse with same couple (or anyone) at fourteen meals during the week then this could lessen your satisfaction with the hotel. All the staff were helpful and friendly, especially in the restaurant. The hotel is located away form the hustle and bustle of Sorrento which can be reached by foot in 20 minutes or so or the hotel has a good shuttle bus service throughout. The sea is just down the road and the concrete/timber lido can be reached via lift or stairs where you can pay for a sun bed/shade on the jetty. There is a very small pebble there. If you want a proper beach (pebble) then you can catch a bus travelling north via Meta where there are three lidos to choose from. The swimming pool was welcome after a days sightseeing and there were enough sunbeds available There was entertainment some nights but it was the same guy playing the keyboards who helped to clear the bar area by missing or playing the wrong notes during his performance. If you want some live music then walk to the left or right from the hotel entrance and there is usually a hotel that has something going and is open to non residents. Overall, although we were out nearly every day sightseeing, we did have a pleasant and relaxing stay.
"Super Relaxing and Great Staff"
07/18/14 Colin K Phoenix, Arizona
Very nice hotel located just outside of Sorrento(15 minute walk). Located in quiet residential neighborhood. Hotel, pool, and outddor seating areas are beautiful by night and day. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Pool is exquisitely clean and pleasant. No sea views except for a handful of rooms on the 4th and 5th flooors. There are Sun terraces with very nice chairs and showers(to cool off) on the 4th and 5th floors for sun bath bathing. They offer free shuttle services into Sorrento and back starting at 8 am and ending at 10 pm aprrox. every one-two hours depending on time of day. However, the walk is easy and my wife and I often chose to walk either one or both ways. My only word of caution is that if you are looking for a rollicking scene, this is not it. My wife and I are in our late 30's and we were by far the youngest couple there. Most were couples with grown kids and a few families with younger children. My wife and I could not help but chuckle a bit as we are originally from Upstate New York,for those from in and around New York and upstate, think Catskills. For those not, think of the movie Dirty Dancing. This place is like that, without the cheesiness. Breakfast spread is very good, definitely skip the 3 course dinner for 25 euro per person at the hotel restaurant. It is not very good, nor a good value. Particularly with all of the great food options available.
"Best of both worlds close to Sorrento centre for Bed and Breakfast"
07/17/14 SunJunkieMk MK
We found the hotel through the British Airways holiday site which meant we had to arrange our own transfers. Having arrived too late to get the local bus, we contacted the hotel to help us arrange a private transfer from the airport which was 90 euros for one way. Hugely overpriced but that's taxis in Italy! Prior to us even arriving we were in contact with the hotel as we requested a nice room overlooking the bay for my birthday. While we weren't guaranteed this, the hotel promised to do their best to accommodate our request - which was honoured at check in. The staff were superb and literally everyone from Reception to the maids to the waiting staff at breakfast and during the day to the lifeguards around the pool were really friendly, helpful and couldn't do enough to look after us. We had a room on the 4th floor (418) which had superb views of Vesuvius but no balcony. Rooms are all quite small but are spotlessly clean with a 4 piece bathroom set. Towels were initially very strange - just linen but were amazingly effective. We also asked for additional pillows which were provided. There is a fridge in the room too which was great for keeping water cool and the aircon was also free. There is also a free safe in the room too. Wifi in the hotel is free and pretty quick. it works better the closer you are to Reception and you had to keep logging back in but no problem really! The fantastic sun terraces on floors 4 and 5 are great ways to view the bay. The pool was a little chilly when we first arrived but soon warmed up by early July. i can honestly say it was the cleanest pool I have EVER been in. There were plenty of sun-loungers all day but it did get a little busier in the afternoons but there were always the sun terraces if there were no free loungers directly by the pool. Both terraces had showers and got the breeze too. Each pool tile was visible from the 5th floor! The lifeguards are great at keeping the whole area clean and tidy and we were delighted that no glass is allowed around the pool area too! Breakfast had a good selection from continental foods to fresh croissants as well as bacon, scrambled egg and beans. Some people also requested omelettes and fried eggs but this wasn't advertised. Good bread, cake and cereal selections. There was rarely fresh fruit available but this wasn't a major issue. Coffee and English breakfast tea was also great!! We found Sant'Agnello to be a lovely quiet residential district of Sorrento with a good variety of locals amenities, especially for lunch. We used the complimentary shuttle bus most days to go into Sorrento in the evening but it is also a 20 minute stroll into Sorrento town centre. The bus is great, frequent and on time with lovely drivers and always a cheery welcome! It also collects from a sister hotel nearby so booking is essential. Hotel Caravel and Sant'Agnello is the perfect location to explore Sorrento and the Amalfi coast with a local train station and bus stop to destinations such as Pompeii, Herculaneum and also Naples. We really can't thank the staff enough for such a fantastic stay - keep up the good work, we promised to highly recommend you all and here it is! Superb!

We visited this hotel last month. We booked for 6 nights but changed our plans and the hotel staff were so helpful in finding us a room even though the hotel was full. The hotel Manager and staff could not do enough for us they were fantastic. The room was clean and we had a lovely outlook over the pool. The food was very good with buffet breakfast and waiter service in the evening. The waiters were so friendly and helpful. All in all we had a wonderful 9 nights at this hotel but what made it for us was the staff. Would definitely like to return sometime in the future. Anyone thinking of going, you will have a lovely time.

I visited the hotel with my parents as part of a trip to celebrate my 30th birthday. My parents visited this hotel years previously. The triple room we got initially was too small to accommodate 3 people with the aesthetics very poor. At our request we were moved to a gorgeous, spacious triple room with a beautiful balcony and aspect. Overall my parents reported that it had become a little run down since their previous visit in terms of the gardens etc. However, I felt it was immaculately maintained, beautiful breakfasts (fresh fruit and orange juice would have been a nice addition to a continental breakfast). Our waiter Raphael deserves a particular mention. The swimming poor was beautifully maintained- clean, deep and multiple sun loungers. Unfortunately my father became ill during the trip. However, it was during this time that the hotel and all its staff were so accommodating. They allowed us to remain in the same room as my dad was unable to move, the provided us with unlimited use of the phone to contact our insurance company, called for medical assistance promptly and were EXTREMELY helpful and reassuring, particularly Caramelo. I could not speak highly enough of all staff. In all, this is a beautiful, clean hotel, extremely helpful staff from the receptionist to the waiters, lifeguard and cleaning staff. It is ideally located to explore Sorrento. There is a free shuttle bus that brings you into the heart of Sorrento which is a major bonus. I would definitely visit here again, either with my family or partner.
