Grand Hotel Due Golfi is situated on a hillside in Massa Lubrense, Italy, overlooking the Gulf of Naples. This four-star hotel is surrounded by scenic Italian countryside on the outskirts of Sorrento with views of the Mediterranean Sea and Mount Vesuvius.
Rooms feature classical Italian decor and include flat-screen television, free Wi-Fi, minibars, safes, and private balconies.
An outdoor pool, completed in 2016, is open seasonally. Guests can also enjoy on-site tennis courts and a football field. The hotel offers free parking and shuttles to Sorrento.
A free buffet-style breakfast is prepared each morning in the restaurant, which serves Mediterranean and international cuisine. After meals, guests can relax in the lounge or bar.
Grand Hotel Due Golfi is an 18-minute drive from the Piazza Tasso in Sorrento, 19 minutes from Marina Grande, and 22 minutes from the Museum Correale di Terranova.
Of course it had to be the incredible views across the Gulf of Sorrento, all the way to Vesuvius, that most impressed guests about the Grand Hotel. It was one of the main reasons guests booked here, and going by comments it seems they were certainly not disappointed.
Truly exceptional staff
Again and again guests complimented the staff for their professionalism and friendliness. But guests seemed to go beyond the usual compliments by adding that the staff showed enormous attention to detail when carrying out their tasks, indicating to the that they were in a true luxury hotel.
Close to Sant'Agata
The hotel was described as being on the outskirts of the lovely village of Sant'Agata. While a bit of a walk away, many guests did feel comfortable walking over there to find a great little café or restaurant.
Hair-raising drive into town
While not mentioned all that often it was pointed out that the drive in to Sorrento was just a little scary. The hotel has a shuttle bus that transports guests to and fro, but the road is a hair-raising pass and the drivers were said to be in something of a hurry.
Very slow Wi-Fi
While guests did not seem to have a problem getting a Wi-Fi signal and stable connection anywhere on the premises, they did say that it was very slow indeed, so only the most basic apps could really be run properly.
No in-room tea/coffee making facilities
It was mentioned that there were no tea or coffee making facilities in the rooms, which a good many did miss. Of course drinks were available downstairs, but guests would have liked the ability to make their own with a minimum of fuss.
