    The hotel was very clean and well located. The staff were very friendly and could not help us enough with anything we asked. The food, we only had breakfast but was very good, lots of choice and plenty of it.Would stay again with no worries.

  • Older travelers

    My husband and I found the hotel staff excellent to deal with. When a train strike meant that we had to leave the hotel a day early (in order to catch a flight out of Rome), the manager was very accommodating. Nothing was a problem. They also responded quickly when told that we could not have a hot shower.

    The bed was a real roll-together mattress, and small.

  • Couple
    7.8

    A clean, quiet, comfortable, fairly priced hotel in a good location 20 minute walk to town centre, 5 mins from a lovely beach and restaurant or bus stops/train station. The beds in particular in our "comfort" room were large and firm. Breakfast buffet was varied and of decent quality. The pool was peaceful and well kept.

    Nothing really stands out as bad, of course you'd always want more luxury and less cost but overall, a good value hotel I'd definitely recommend.

  • Family with children

    The pool and location of the hotel are fantastic! Close enough to the Sorrento Piazza to walk (0.8 m) but far enough to be quiet and relaxing after a long day enjoying the area.

    Its Europe so expected and not really a negative, but I think travel is about expectations. New travelers to Europe need to know that the rooms will be small and the ac will not provide polar bear sleeping conditions of many American hotels.

    I stayed here 6 years ago and had a wonderful stay. Unfortunately I can't say the same this time. The staff was quite rude, the room was so small we could barely fit our 2 suitcases, the shower leaked and we had a flooded floor every time, the breakfast was not that great, and worst of all they may advertise as air conditioned but they shut it off at 1 -5 am and you wake up sweating. It is also about a 10-15 min walk from the city center. Overall I was very disappointed and would not recommend this hotel nor stay here again. It is not a 4 star quality.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    We found the staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful, they spoke good english at the reception, dining room and bar, our room was clean and well looked after, the dining room was very well run, the menu was varied and the food well cooked and delicious. The bar menu was also very good. As well as the pool in the gardens there is a sun terrace on the roof. A shuttle bus was available free to use everyday from outside the hotel to the Sorrento town for shopping etc. The hotel also arranged trips to Capri, Amalfi and more. It was all a wonderful experience.

  • Family with children
    9.6

    Friendliness of the staff and the close proximity to Sorrento town. The free courtousey bus provided by the hotel. The well maintained swimming pool

    Maybe dishes that have been used at the breakfast table could be removed by staff after each course.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    I loved the hotel caravel although it was a twenty five minute walk into Sorrento it was in a very peaceful area. There was a shuttle bus provided by the hotel and there was also a regular bus service nearby. We only stayed on a bed and breakfast basis and eat out all the time. and I have to say that the breakfast was excellent.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Nice room (404), wonderful pool, out of the mainstream of Sorrento traffic.....

    Good place.....we'd recommend.

  • Family with children
    8.8

    We stayed with our 3 year old son and the staff were fantastic, they made us all feel so welcome, within days they all knew our sons name and constantly made a fuss of him even presenting him with his own toy baby turtle so he would remember the hotels pet turtles that he loved so much. This was our 2nd visit to the area 4yrs ago we stayed in the Grand Hotel Royal Sorrento but for friendliness and a warm welcome we would certainly choose the Hotel Caravel if we plan on returning for a 3rd visit!

  • Group of friends

    Hotel Caravel earns its four stars! It is well appointed and conveniently located to Sorrento and for excursions to Pompeii and Herculaneum, as well as Naples (train station is quite nearby). There are excellent restaurants within walking distance. The staff is friendly and responsive. The swimming pool is great -- I actually swam laps there! All four of us in our party (2 U.S. couples on vacation) were extremely pleased with the quality and service. Our only caveat: while the breakfasts are good, we advise agianst eating dinner there.

    The only thing we did not like about Hotel Caravel was the low quality of the dinner menu and the food served for dinner. Italy is a country where fresh, well-prepared and delicious food is easy to come by, so this drawback was a mystery.

  • Single

    The hotel in quite area,but consider to be far from sorrento center,taxi is very expensive.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    The area surrounding the Hotel, the Amalfi coast, shops and easy reach to Capri

    The food in general was average to poor.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    Nice very quiet room with great views over the bay of Naples, well located for town centre and local amenities. Good pool and sun terraces and the staff were generally very friendly. The sel service breakfast was good with a good choice of food.

    On just one occasion a member of staff did not act appropriately. He came and answered the phone after I was already waiting at the reception to get my key. He then stayed over 5 minutes on the phone with out acknowledging me and other guests who had arrivedand were kept waiting. When we tried to get his attention he justified his actions and made no apology. On another occasion at breakfast staff were overheard saying that they gave preferential treatment to Italians- serving them coffee rather than self service for others. Generally however the staff were very good and very friendly.

    I have just spent 7 glorious nights at this little gem called "Hotel Caravel" Sorrento. I have to say it was one of the classiest, friendliest, cleanest hotels I have stayed in. The staff were excellent and were so helpful and nice to us all the time. A special thanks to Mario for being so kind and organising a large bedroom on the fourth floor with a lovely view of the Mountains (superior with balcony). Mickaela and Marieangela at reception were so friendly. Max in the bar became our friend and looked after our every need as did Guiseppe and Roberta. We were half board and really enjoyed breakfast and our meal every evening thanks to the dining room staff. My sister, cousin and I really enjoyed the Caravel - even though it was twenty five minutes walk to Sorrento we found the hotel shuttle (free of charge) great and it went several times in the morning and after noon - the last shuttle from Sorrento was 10.45pm. I would recommend the Caravel and would stay there again. Thanks to everyone for making our holiday very enjoyable.
