The traditional family-run Hotel Sonia enjoys a superb position in the centre of Santa Maria di Castellabate, right on the edge of the sandy Marina Piccola beach. Its unique beachfront location in the heart of a delightful town means Hotel Sonia is also near to some interesting sights such as the 17th century Torre Perrotti and the 13th century Palazzo Belmonte. Fresh greens and crisp yellows have been used in recently decorated guestrooms, and the hotel's restaurant serves a good choice of local specialities including fresh fish that has been stone baked. Alternative dishes can also be prepared on request. The hotel restaurant Taverna del Mare has a wonderful terrace that stretches out onto the sandy beach, where a snack bar is available. Hotel guests have complimentary use of umbrellas and deckchairs. Just around the corner of the beach lies the archetypal, picturesque little harbour, where you can see the local fishermen in their colourful fishing boats untie the nets at the end of the day. The longer, main beach is only a 2 minute stroll away.
