It was hard to get there from the train station because we didn't know you can take the bus which drops you right at the corner... The hotel is on a cliff so ten view is fantastic! The room was very spacious and clean, the only inconvenience is that at night you can only eat in the hotel restaurant because there is nothing else around, and the food […] was not impressive but extremely pricey!

"Great location in Meta just up from the beach"
Problem is no ATM near the hotel. Great tours to Capri and Amalfi provided by the staff. Scuba diving requires going all the way to Positano. Train goes to Sorrento and bus. The maps do not show the bus station or train station (located together) in Meta.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Didn't meet expectations."
Unfortunately we did not feel this hotel lived up to it's expectations. We ended up not staying there as it was not what we wanted when we booked it. It is in Meta, a few km outside Sorrento. It did not appear to us to have many nearby bars or restaurants. The beach below looked fine but very busy. The pool was small but looked fine and there were tables […] outside on a terrace, but in the kind of courtyard of the hotel so no views. Our room was an economy double, but in a 4 star (?) hotel we thought this would be fairly nice. The room was a disappointment. The bed seemed fine but the bathroom was grubby and the shower was the smallest I've ever been in and leaked onto the bathroom floor. The room felt more like a hostel than a hotel. Usually this kind of room wouldn't bother us but as we had splashed out for the last couple of days of our holiday to stay in a 4 star hotel we expected much more. The communal areas looked alright. Staff were a bit defensive at first but then booked us a taxi etc. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

With a view to the ocean and the basic needed facilities in the room this was a favourite hotel. However, We missed WiFi in the room. Poor breakfast. Suggestions: better coffee and freshly cooked bacon and egg :-)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Prisvärt hotell med bra frukost och underbar utsik"
Prisvärt hotell med bra frukost, underbar utsikt (vi hade över havet åt två riktningar) Hotellet var fräscht med gratis wifi och förhållandevis nära till stranden. Hade svårt att hitta hotellet då skyltarna på vägen dit var otydliga... Inte hotellets fel möjligtvis men ändå störande. Vi kan rekommendera det, åtminstone till det priset vi fick rumme […] t!

Matig. Nieuw hotel met grote opstart problemen.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Vista sul mare indimenticabile. A sinistra paesaggio abitato, da cartolina. A destra della nostra stanza, roccia precipite da film a colori tenui. Tramonti colorati, albe intense e delicate, allietate dal volo riposante e tranquillo di uccelli mediterranei, tirrenici; spiaggetta sottostante la nostra finestra invitante al riposo e al silenzio meditativo.Una […] breve vacanza DISISTRESSANTE, come dice mia moglie colombiana, che da molto tempo desiderava visitare la costa della penisola sorrentina e l'antistante isola di Capri. Expedia ha consigliato in modo superlativo con una risposta superlativa della struttura e del personale. Potrò avere la speranza di un ritorno a Meta di Sorrento all'età dei miei 80 anni? Che limoni! Che vino! Che pesce! E che ragazze! A queste bellezze sorrentine del bar Palace Panorama Hotel di Meta:ho voluto lasciare un ricordo:LABOR OMNIA VINCIT. Una di loro mi ha sussurrato: ORA ET LABORA!

"Good hotel and the view is great :-)"
Stayed in the hotel for 10 days in July and August 2011. It's a fine hotel, for the prize and the staff is friendly. We had breakfast included in our stay, and it was an okay, but nothing fancy, They make great coffee. It's a short but step walk to a good beach, but remember to bring money, as most of the beaches are privat and expensive to visit. The […] town of Meta is small and charming, and has a few good restuarants. If you plan to stay for several days, you should explore outside the town. Go to Pompei, Versuvia or the town of Sorrento and take the ferry to the island of Ischia, it's beautiful. There are good bus and train connection to and from Meta and it's easy to navigate. The best part at staying at the hotel was the view, which was spectacular. The wi-fi is free, but only works in the lobby area, and only some times, so if you need to be on-line most of the time, this is not a hotel for you. ;-) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

My friends and I stayed here near the end of the summer. Perched high up on a hillside in Meta di Sorrento, overlooking the water, this hotel was a wonderful surprise. The rooms were more spacious than any others that I have encountered in most modest budget hotels in Europe. The air conditioning was on and cold, and the water was calling to us from below. If you walk down the switchback road from the hotel, you end up in a great little black sand cove perfect for swimming and relaxing. We ate dinner in the hotel twice and were pleased with our meals both times. All in all, this is a wonderful find located close enough to larger towns to be accessible, but removed enough to feel relaxing.
"Great Views, Short stays only"
09/22/13 Richard S Peterborough, United Kingdom
Its in Meta which can be ideal depending on what you want from your holiday but for us Sorrento would have been the ideal choice as all transfers, trips, restaurants and shops are in Sorrento. Meta has a beach and cafe, restaurant, and a few shops, train station and bus services but expect to walk. The bus service to and from Sorrento is unreliable and only runs to approx.10.20pm, taxis are expensive approx. 35 Euros from Sorrento to Meta, walking takes 45mins to an hour and they don't favour foot paths. I recommend the cafe just down from the hotel, value for money, very friendly and polite and tasty food. Any meal in Meta/Sorrento seemed to be approx. 10 Euros per person and alcoholic drink 6-7 euros but the measures are generous. Be careful when booking trips from Sorrento as they generally only include the transfer/tour in the price, admissions to sites and lunch etc...are additional. As for the hotel, its good for a few days pit stop. Positives Superb view with a sea view room, spacious and clean. Extended check out time by 1-2hrs on day of departure. Negatives The hotel manager seemed friendly and helpful but rarely seen, all other staff barely smile, welcome or seem friendly. The breakfast options are limited as is the hot water for shower. It says the hotel has airport shuttle but we had to sort our own transfers. The air con didn't work in any of the rooms. We had ants and noise from the square out the front (sea view rooms) goes on until early hours of the morning 4.30am-5am, but quiet during the day. No sun loungers allowed by the pool, and small pool.
"Very beautiful Panorama, but try to avoid beaches in Summer"
08/20/13 BAC6815 Lugano
We stayed in this hotel just for One night, as we wanted to see beaches near Sorrent and Napoli, the Hotel is a little old-fashioned, family run and may need modernisation. The staff is very friendly and helpful, breakfast only up to 09.30, but quite reasonable for Italian Standards. We were disappointed by the beaches, totally overcrowded with THOUSANDS of tourists and locals on less then 600meters of Beach, very commicialized. Better avoid the beaches in August (Summer Time is Italian Main Season) - Black sand, not by clean, entrance Fee expensive, (30 Euros for 2 persons for 2 Sinnes and 1 umbrella). The really best is the view from the Hotel and the Piazza outside, try to get a Rom with Sea view (about 20 euros more then Standard room). The Pool inthe Hotel is too small (just 4 x 4 Meters).

the hotel was very large and spacious and could easily accommodate our four pupils to a room. the bathrooms were always clean and simple and the pool was very good and kept well. the food was lush every time but only bread for breakfast and cornflakes which i though was a limited choice but food in general was lovely. our air conditioning was a bit on and off but the friendly staff helped to fix it. being a party of 30 we could be loud but the staff helped us and accommodated us well. every day the rooms were cleaned and beds made which helped us as young teenagers a lot. the mangers and waiters were all friendly (specifically Nello) and were up for a chat. the location of the hotel itself was great. a 3 minute walk to the beach down hill and a lovely black sand beach kept in good condition. 5 minute walk to sorrento station. great location. one thing that could have made the hotel better is if it had free WiFi which it did not even have. there also could have been more electricity sockets (there was one) there was a sunroof which was placed perfectly for the sun however the pool was always in the shade which made the water colder and you could not tan in the water. altogether me and my friends had a lovely time and enjoyed our stay. we were all sad to leave. thanks you Panorama for memories that we will keep forever.
"Perfect for a trip!"
This hotel was A LOT better than the reviews suggest. The food was very good especially the pasta on the first night. All the staff were very helpful and one member of staff even managed to read my mind and bring what I wanted at dinner! Our room was very clean when we went in and our beds were made everyday. The pool was gorgeous, refreshing and relaxing! There was also a sunroof on floor one which had lots of sun loungers and a beautiful view of the sea and Italian houses. Overall I had a very enjoyable experience and the bad reviews are by people who are very fussy! I would recommend it to anyone!
"School party's experience"
07/13/13 Aileen L Redditch, United Kingdom
We read the negative reviews before we went on our trip (Pompeii etc), and now that we're back I'd like to balance things up a bit. The hotel is very comfortable, rooms are a good size although of course pupils are packed in 3 or 4 to a room. Air con/toilets/showers all worked (this doesn't always happen). Rooms were cleaned thoroughly, beds remade and towels replaced daily (again, not always the case). The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly, got the air con sorted when we couldn't work the controls out, food allergies etc were catered for without any difficulty, and we just felt really well looked after.The food was very good (and plentiful) -not a la carte, but much better than I have had on similar trips -no need to pop out for a pizza after every meal! Beach and rail station are a long steep walk away -Meta is built on the side of a cliff, but that's hardly the hotel's fault. There is also very little for a party of teenagers to do in Meta in the evening so we got the train to Sorrento which is 5 minutes away. Other reviewers may be right about the 4* rating; perhaps the definition of 4* varies from country to country?
"very good hotel"
07/10/13 Parmeet K Meta
after a struggle with Hotels in Rome, this hotel was a like fresh air. literally fresh air. loved every bit of it. we all got sea view rooms, rooms are big and the staff extremely helpful. always ready to help the only suggestion i would give is to improve breakfast options.
06/19/13 ashtonjk Silkeborg
Went with a travel agency. The food was very lousy. The reception arrogant. No safe in the room. Handed money etc. to the receptionist, could not get a receipt and as it turned out no security. One guest handed over her jewels and NEVER got them back!! The manager did not care or helped to find them (in their drawer as they do not have a safe). The view from outside fantastic, but that is not enough!!
"Beautiful view near the hotel - that's all what was good"
01/27/13 shania_fr Minsk, Minsk, Belarus
We came to the hotel late in the evening after 2000 km by bus, very tired and exhausted. But what we saw at the end of this long trip? The worst hotel i've ever seen in my life. Very small rooms, long and hard way to the beach, and there you must pay on the beach every day. It was very hot there but conditioners didn't work without paying...Terrible bathroom, wardrobe, bad smell. And very bad personal on the reception - no help, no explanations...I'll never come there even without any money!
