Grand Hotel Royal 

Classic elegance meets impeccable service

Surrounded by gardens, this elegant hotel is an oasis in the heart of Sorrento.

This beautifully positioned hotel is set within a large historic park overflowing with exotic plants, orange and lemon trees. Sitting high on a cliff top, it offers magical views of the Gulf of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. Despite its location close to the centre of Sorrento, there is a surprising air of peace and tranquillity here.
