I have been to Sorrento 10+ times and just found out about this little gem this year. Mariano and his staff (Lisa, you are AMAZING) are top notch. I want to write a book about how great this place is, but I will give you all the highlights. If you don't stay here you are missing out (but book early).
We arrived and were happily greeted by Lisa (who became our best friend while there). The bellman took our luggage to our room and we were off to paradise.
The first two night we spend in the Dominova Room. BY FAR THE BEST ROOM...if you can request it do so, you won't regret it. It is the biggest of all their rooms. The room is spacious, has a great balcony overlooking the people down below (you are on a walking street so you can see everyone go by and no cars!). We wish we would have stayed in this room for the last night though we went to the Penthouse the last night.
The Penthouse is on the top where you eat breakfast and it two levels. The first level has the kitchenette and the below has the bedroom and the terrace. If you are staying for a long stay the Penthouse would be the ticket because you can cook. I celling is low (as I am 6' tall), but the rooms is GREAT!!! The terrace is quiet and off the street so you can relax and have a bottle or two of wine, which is great (though no view).
Now about the breakfast...you place your order the night before because Mariano's mom cooks everything from scratch. It is outstanding! And you can see by other pictures that they put a little heart in the cappuccino if you get one in the morning. The food is filling and you can see the details from my picture.
The staff...WOW, what can I say. He hired the best people to make you feel at home. And to top it off, we even left our passport in the safe and went to Ischia for 4 days (ya, bad move on our part). But we called and Lisa said she knew someone on that boat and we would have it the next day (so we wouldn't have to pay to go back and fourth and miss a beat). Well the passport came the next morning (as we meet the skipper at the dock) and we were set. Between Mariano, his wife, Lisa and a few others I must say we will be back again next year for longer and we will make sure to get the Dominova Room ;)
What are you waiting for...book a room and tell the staff I said hello ;)
