  • About this holiday

    Expressions Holidays recommends Grand Hotel Cocumella in Sant'Agnello di Sorrento for a tranquil stay outside of the lively centre of Sorrento. The hotel is located in its own park and has its own man-made private beach reached by a lift. It is within 20 minutes walk of Sorrento's centre and within easy reach of the coastal towns of Amalfi, Positano and Ravello. The hotel has its own crewed ship available for sailing excursions. We would also recommend a half day tour to a local farmhouse for a mozarella, limoncello and pizza-making demonstration ending with lunch. 

    Client testimonials:
    "The hotel is one of the best that I have ever stayed at. The service was brilliant - we were so well looked after. Staff were wonderful, very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was out of this world."

    Our opinion

    The Grand Hotel Cocumella in Sant'Agnello di Sorrento is an elegant hotel set in beautiful gardens.

    Hotel description

    The gracious Grand Hotel Cocumella is situated in its own tranquil and beautiful park in Sant’Agnello, just a 20 minute walk from Sorrento's lively centre with its ample choice of tempting shops, bars and restaurants. Set in the leafy and well tended gardens where various types of flowers, fruits and vegetables bloom are a lovely swimming pool surrounded by terraces, and a tennis court. The Grand Hotel Cocumella has spacious public rooms and bedrooms decorated in traditional style. The atmosphere of the hotel is traditional, historic and elegant and almost no two rooms are alike in size, even if they are in the same category. Leading off the hotel a pretty terrace looks out to the gardens and here guests can enjoy the full buffet breakfast. The summery restaurant, Scintilla, specialises in regional and vegetarian cuisine and here there is also the possibility of eating 'al fresco'. The Grand Hotel Cocumella also has its own man-made beach which is reached by a lift in the gardens; this is exclusively for guests' use, and deckchairs, umbrellas and bathing cabins are provided. A unique asset of the Grand Hotel Cocumella is its magnificent fully crewed ship, which provides the opportunity for guests to go on sailing excursions for the day.
