Trip to Sorrento for 4 days

I am traveling to the Amalfi Coast area in August with my wife and two kids (tweens) .

We'll be there for 4 nights - this ends our trip through Italy. I am close to booking in Sorrento at the Miramare Hotel. (I have been debating between Positano, Amalfi and Sorrento). Has anyone stayed at this particular hotel? With the agenda below, would Positano and Amalfi be too difficult for getting around?

Agenda:
- trip to Pompeii, Herculaneum and climb Vesuvius
- ferry to Ischia (visit castle and thermal pools) - Questions: are the thermal pools nice in hot August? - and which thermal pool would you recommend?
- ferry to Positano and Amalfi (if we're based in Sorrento)

The reason we are looking at Ischia instead of Capri is because I have read that it is a bit less crowded and less glitzy - we aren't shoppers, but love the water, boat rides, and beautiful scenery.

The one reason we'd consider a visit to Capri is for the boat tour around the island - with the possibility of seeing the Blue Grotto.

Any advice would be helpful - thank you!
