The Hotel Il Faro was born in a strategic position, in a romantic setting, the only hotel located in the Port of Sorrento, a few steps from the sea and the embarkations for the neighboring islands (Capri, More Ischia, Procida), in a position strategic just 500 meters from the square dedicated to the Tasso "Piazza Tasso". The structure is very characteristic in a marine style; the sea view rooms all renovated, enjoy a spectacular view, equal to a beautiful postcard Less

Can you use another hotels swimming pool if your one hasn't got one
Yes - we used the pool at the Carlton Hotel up near Palazzo Tasso which isn’t too far from Il Faro - it cost €15 each for the day. It has a big pool, you can use their towels and it has a snack bar serving burgers for around €5.
