Food and drink

The hotel’s restaurants, L’Altea and La Camelia, serve delicious Mediterranean and international food which adds creative modern touches to traditional dishes. A wide selection of local pastries are on offer as well as the hotel’s very own delicious home-made ice cream. The main bar, La Magnolia, is a stylish space where you can enjoy a drink or light lunch. At the Hibiscus bar, located on the roof terrace, you can relax with a light lunch or cocktail as you take in the beautiful view. The garden has a snack bar and grill which is open during the afternoon. From May to October, the terrace plays host to a traditional Sorrento evening meal every week, with live music, dance and other entertainment.


As well as the scenic rooftop pool, guests have access to a private beach a short walk from the hotel. There’s also a second pool located in the hotel’s small garden, and a small courtyard with lemon trees and a wishing well where guests can relax.
