With its flawless position on a clifftop overlooking the Gulf of Naples and Mount Vesuvius right in the heart of postcard-perfect Sorrento, Grand Hotel Royal is one of this resort town's most prestigious addresses. Each of the bright, airy rooms and suites has a private balcony with exclusive views of the Mediterranean or the hotel's beautiful private gardens, and the recently restored interiors offer the most up-to-date luxury and comfort while retaining their classic historic elegance: sweeping marble staircases and crystal chandeliers, sumptuous sofas and carved wooden furnishings, and precious antiques grace the hotel's public halls and lounges.
The hotel's fine dining restaurant, "Le Relais", features both local Mediterranean cuisine and international dishes on its gourmet menu, paired with an extensive wine list including the best local and international labels. To celebrate special occasions or events, the "Glicini" Room off the main dining room offers breathtaking views of the lush gardens and sparkling Mediterranean...the perfectly unforgettable venue for your wedding reception or gala dinners in Italy.
For a lighter repast, the "Caprice" Lounge Bar serves afternoon tea and evening cocktails, and the poolside Restaurant & Snack Bar "La Terrasse" serves traditional Neapolitan pizza, fish dishes, grilled meat,and light salads at informal tables overlooking the sea.
Below the hotel at the water's edge, theSnack-Bar "La Marine" on Grand Hotel Royal's private jetty, offers drinks and simple appetizers with a view of the water, and the nearby private beach is the perfect spot for sunbathing, a leisurely swim, or for setting off on a sail along the Amalfi Coast or across the gulf to Italy's Island of Capri.

Grand Hotel Royal is located in Sorrento, perched directly above the sea on a rocky promontory from where sweeping views of the entire Gulf of Naples and the majestic form of Mount Vesuvius can be admired. Those travelling by air will want to take flights landing at Naples' Capodichino Airport. Guests choosing to journey by train should descend at Naples Central Station from where to board a Sorrento-bound train on the Circumvesuviana line. By car, the hotel is easily reached via the A3 Napoli-Salerno motorway, exiting at Castellammare di Stabia from where to follow indications to Sorrento. Sea connections link Sorrento to Naples, Capri, and Castellammare all year round. Whilst holidaying in Sorrento, visitors should not fail to take a trip along the nearby Amalfi Coast, to the islands of Capri, Ischia, and Procida, and to the fascinating archaeological site of Pompei.
