We had previously stayed at Rota Suites when it was a hotel many years ago but wanted to bring our, now adult family, to see this beautiful area. We were welcomed by Raffaella who showed us to our lovely interconnecting apartments which for a family of 5 adults were perfect.
The apartments are really well designed and very well equipped ; we were all delighted and spent a lovely week there. The weather was very pleasant so we were able to enjoy the balcony, the beautiful view across the Bay of Naples and lemon grove across the road. We did not use the pool at 'The Riviera' on this occasion but did have drinks on the terrace there - a truly spectacular setting.
Sorrento and the surrounding area proved to be as friendly as ever and very affordable - it's worth asking for tips on good local restaurants - and we loved our lunchtimes down at Marina Grande.
I would recommend Rota Suites as the apartments are modern, clean and comfortable but also very conveniently located; in a quiet location but near bars, restaurants and shops. An easy stroll to Piazza Tasso and the station with access to 'The Riviera Hotel' just around the corner.
A fantastic holiday and we shall return again soon.
We have just returned from spending 4 nights in Sorrento at the Rota Suites and can honestly say had a fantastic time. We did a lot of sight-seeing and a lot of walking - Pompeii, Herculaneum, Amalfi, Capri - and it was a wonderful to come back to such a welcoming and well-equipped apartment.
The apartment was spacious (the photos don't do it justice), very clean and contained everything we needed to make our stay comfortable, including cotton bed linen, fluffy towels, a good range of kitchen equipment and wifi connection.
We were a party of 2 adults and 2 children, aged 6 and 12, and we did not feel cramped in the apartment at all. The sofa-bed in the living room converted easily into a full double/king-sized bed, and was lovely and firm, with a solid metal mechanism, rather than just fold-out foam. The bedroom had 2 single beds, also nice and firm, which were very kind on our backs after all that walking!
The bathroom was clean and spacious, with a bath and shower fitting overhead. The water pressure was excellent and the children could have stood in the shower for ages! The kitchen area opened out from a large cupboard style unit, and was ingenious in its use of space without feeling too cramped. We made pasta for our evening meal twice and had no difficulty at all. The microwave was also easy to use once I'd figured it out - use the bottom dial to set the time required and then press the !-button to start. I suppose instructions would have been useful for this but it didn't seem to difficult to work out.
The location was fabulous. Just 5 mins away from the main Corsa Italia that runs through the heart of Sorrento, and about 10 mins from the station. We just wheeled our luggage there from the station (where the airport bus leaves you), and it took very little time - go down to Corsa Italia, turn right and keep going till you see Viale Nizza on the left. Go down to the end of Viale Nizza, turn right and after the little bar on the corner you will find Rota Suites.
To get to Sorrento from Naples airport we used the Curreri Viaggi bus which leaves every 2 hours. The lovely Raffaella at Reception will check the return times for you on your way back home.
The staff were all friendly and very helpful - we needed extra blankets on the first night and these were brought up within minutes. Raffaella also turned up the heating for us seeing as we had children and my elderly mum with us. When our little girl was ill, she was very helpful and gave us her mobile number, just in case, as well as that of an English-speaking doctor.
All in all, we had a wonderful time and cannot recommend these apartments highly enough. We will certainly be coming back very soon...
Perfect lodging for our family. Good location. Clean. Kitchen ok for light meals. We didn't experienced any problem with noise level. What made our stay plaisant was the friendliness of the staff at reception. Very helpful and lovely. Helped with our plane booking, timetables of boats etc. Always told us when there wouldn't be anyone at reception (and the next door hotel takes over if necessary). We would go back there again, not for a romantic stay but just right for a simple family holiday. Thank you for the smiles!
