"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.

"Home from home"
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

"Prima Hotel dicht bij Sorrento"
Fijn Hotel op loopafstand van Sorrento,wanneer je geen zin hebt om te lopen kun je het hotel shuttle busje nemen deze rijd op vaste tijden.Genuine Expedia 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 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

"Ottimo hotel da tutti i punti di vista"
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. La camera era ben arredata e silenziosa. Merita infine particolare menzione la cucina. Consigliatissimo!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Reasonably priced and friendly staff"
The only negative things were the extra charges for towels for the pool, using the pool table and using the wifi.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel ligt op een prettige locatie, alle bezienswaardigheden zijn goed bereikbaar,zowel met auto,openbaar vervoer en ferry . Net,iets ouderwets hotel.

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
Прибывание в данном отеле доставило массу удовольствия. Удобно расположен по отношению к пляжу. Очень приветливый и профессиональный персонал.

"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
"Super Personal und Direktion"
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

"A great place to stay"
08/27/14 Liz B Great Malvern, United Kingdom
We spent two wonderful weeks at the Caravel in June. We cannot fault the hotel, which provided a relaxed, happy, friendly and clean environment. The food and service were excellent, as was the outdoor pool and the areas in which to relax. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. The use of local transport was straightforward and the hotel provided a courtesy bus for those who preferred not to walk into the centre of Sorrento.
"Lovely hotel that ticks all the boxes"
08/27/14 Leapingferret Colchester, United Kingdom
Had a wonderful stay at the Caravel last week and really can't fault it. We had a superior room with double balcony that was upgraded to a seaview which had the most wonderful views of Vesuvius and the bay of Naples. The rooms were kept spotless by the lovely cleaner Louisa each day.Free wifi was good. All of the public areas were similarly spotless and well maintained including the pool and the two roof terraces. We were on half board basis. Breakfast was extremely good with an excellent selection of hot and cold offerings and fresh fruit. Dinner was chosen at breakfast for the following evening which was fine for us. Always a salad buffet which sometimes included a hot side dish too. Always a choice of four starters, mains and puddings. Nearly every day featured a regional dish of some type which were always interesting to try. The food was of a good quality and well presented. The only small gripe being the vegetables which seemed to have been sitting for a while.Vegetarian options featured daily. Toni our waiter was a real personality and typical of all of the staff throughout the hotel that we met which gave this hotel such a family feel. The hotel is situated in a quiet residential area which is certainly worth exploring as there are some charming side streets and also a supermarket around a ten minute walk away. The lido is 250m down the hill from the hotel and an easy walk. The descent to the beach can be made by lift for one Euro but it is much more fun to walk down through the Roman cliff path and catch the lift back up. The lido area has a cafe/bar and sun loungers and umbrellas for hire at ten Euros each. We used the hotel shuttle for trips into Sorrento and it was a five minute journey and always on time. All in all I cannot reccomend this hotel more highly and look forward to a return visit at some point.
"First rate Hotel"
08/26/14 john b Largs, United Kingdom
I have visited this Hotel many times and every time i go the staff are welcoming and friendly . The food is excellent any varied and if you love Italian food you will like the food in the caravel ,the hotel is in a quiet area and the center of Sorrento is about a 15 minute walk away. The pool area is clean and well maintained and there are plenty of sunbeds .
"A little bit of heaven!"
08/25/14 Adz R
Not sure what I can add that hasn't already been mentioned on so many reviews on here. From initial contact woth the hotel via email, the taff were 1st class. So accommodating and helpful - even to helping me find the local chemist for some eye drops. Very friendly, extremely clean throughout, inside and out. I was given a balcony room which I didn't really use much but it was still a lovely view. I didn't hear a spund during the night, either outside or from tje hotel. Meals are ok. Plenty of choice for breakfast from cereal, hot and a vast range of pastries and cheese etc. Evening meal is a mixed bag. Always a salad counter to begin. The starter and desserts were amazing but the mains were just ok. Boiled beef wasn't quite like a sunday roast! But the starters more than made up for the mains. Free shuttle service constantly to Sorrento bit easily walkable in 20mins - just be aware of the scooters and busy traffic on not great pavements. Sorrento is stunning and a shopping paradise. Overall an amazing, friendly and quiet little hotel. Already had email correspondence for next year. Thanks everyone. Adam Robins

"Nice hotel friendly staff"

Nice clean hotel. Nice pool area with plenty of beds and umbrellas. Nice garden seating area but got bitten quite a bit. Courtesy bus into sorrento and would go out of their way for you to be able to use it. Would return you pick up or add an extra bus. Breakfasts very nice, lots of choice and doughnuts to die for. Nothing much in sant agnello though. Would stay there again.
"Just returned from Sorrento..."
08/18/14 Hannah G Tyne and Wear, England, United Kingdom
This is the 3rd time I've travelled to Sorrento & the 2nd time I've stayed in S'ant Agnello, we travelled as a group for a family wedding & me &my other half stayed here instead of the Majestic where the rest of the group stayed. We were given a very small room that was not suitable for a 2 week stay so we requested to be moved & were moved to a considerably bigger room after 4 days. We were half board & the breakfasts are gorgeous with quite a bit of choice however me & my partner are very particular with food & found ourselves eating out on several evenings. The hotel is very clean & the pool area is lovely, however I think the hotel would benefit from a lifeguard as there was a rush to put towels out for 9 every morning if we wanted to have a pool day. The shuttle bus is a great idea for trips into Sorrento centre & it is free which is really good. I think this hotel didn't quite meet our expectations especially when we visited family & friends in another hotel but it is in a great location. Big compliment to the waiters who were all really lovely :-)
"Fantastic Hotel, Great Food and Wonderful Staff"
Just returned from a week at the Caravel. The whole experience from arrival through to check out was fantastic. After a long journey the reception team were friendly and made us very welcome. They provided clear instructions about the hotel facilities, meal times and our room. Arriving early evening we quickly changed and went downstairs for dinner. Every member of the restaurant staff provided excellent service and the timing of each course worked like clockwork. We never felt rushed and never had to wait for any of the courses to be served. Staff throughout the hotel made us feel as if we were the centre of their attention. The choice of local and traditional Italian cuisine was excellent and offered something for every taste. Choosing our evening meal at breakfast gave us something to look forward to each day as the food was always better than our highest expectations. Our room was on the first floor overlooking the swimming pool and garden. The room was extremely tastefully furnished and decorated in the quality and style that one would associate with the best of Italy. Breakfast offered a wide choice of hot and cold food and was available from 7:00 to 10:00, which gave plenty of flexibility when we had planned trips of felt like sleeping in! No matter what time we went for breakfast there was always the full choice of food on offer. The hotel pool and roof garden provided a tranquil setting for relaxation and it was always possible to find a sun bed. The terrace bar and lounge area provided an extensive menu of food and drinks throughout the day. Again the service provided by the bar and pool staff was very hospitable. Marinella beach is a few hundred yards from the hotel as is the atmospheric town of S Agnello. The free shuttle bus service was well organised and always on time. We visited with our teenage son, who also enjoyed everything about the holiday. We would recommend this hotel without any hesitation.
