Other comments all describe the lemon groves, the wonderful views and the amazing hospitality. It is true, and all done without any annoying schmaltz: these people are genuinely delightful and helpful. The room was a bit small, the distance from the centre of town just a bit more than you really want, but all made up for by the glorious views and the welcome. This was a wonderful start to our holiday.

Our stay was short (only one night) but sweet. The hotel is well located just above the town with lovely views towards Vesuvius and Naples, but within easy walking distance. (We were on a driving trip, so the secure parking was a great benefit.) The room and amenities were just fine, and the breakfast was superb - and laden with homemade specialties prepared by the owner herself. What makes this Villa Oriana so special is the warm, helpful and personal service of the management and staff. We recommend it whoieheartedly to anyone visiting Sorrento.
Max & Kathleen.

Room Tip: Request an upper floor to get the best of the spectacular views

The location and view was amazing. Our stay was made fantastic due the fabulous service from all the staff. The breakfast room view was spectacular as was the breakfast itself. If you are thinking about a stay in Sorrento I would recommend this location.

Our family will never forget the genuine warmth and generosity of Maria and her wonderful staff. Yes, the location, rooms and breakfast were absolutely fantastic, but the people here impressed us most of all. The owner, Maria, after baking local breakfast specialties from scratch early every morning, then dresses and greets her guests personally at every table. She even made a special Nutella cake for my son's twelfth birthday and surprised him with it while her lovely young staff sang and gave him kisses! Maria taught us Italian songs and we adults crooned with other guests over ice-cold shots of home-made limoncello in the evenings! The delicious food and air of laughter brought back fond memories of my own large, southern Italian family from my childhood. We hope to be among the many families who return to this gem of a spot and visit with our new friends over and over again.

Room Tip: No problem staying four to a room with children. The added beds were more comfortable than we've ever experienced and the room and bathroom are roomy with a big outdoor patio among lemon and orange trees.

Dear Costa family,

thank you for your stay and kindness. It was a pleasure for us to celebrate your son's birthday with you.

Maria sang a lot of Italian and Neapolitan song but above all "Torna a Surriento" wich is our invitation to come back. It will be a new occasion to remind you your Italian childhood thanks to the smells and tastes of Villa Oriana and above all a great possibility for us to host again such a lovely family.

We' ll send you two promotional codes. You can decide wich is the best for you and insert it on our website when you decide to come back. They are TRIP26 and BEST-FRIENDS.

Arrivederci!!!

From the moment we arrived and walked through the glorious lemon groves and entered the villa, we were made to feel at home. After a steep walk up the hill from the main road (get a taxi if you have big bags!) we were welcomed with a refreshing glass of lemon drink, fresh from the groves, and a slice of homemade cake. In fact, homemade cake features very heavily as one of the Villa Oriana Relais' delicacies!

Our room was lovely and clean and we even had our own private balcony which overlooked the groves, with a view over the Bay of Naples. Even though our bedroom was right by the front door, we weren't really bothered with noise. The staff truly go out of their way to help you, they have an excellent knowledge of the local area and can advise you on transport and even book excursions for you - we had a semi private boat day trip to the Island of Capri and it was one of the most memorable days of the holiday! A couple of the nights we were too exhausted to walk down into main Sorrento (about a 15 minute amble) to go out to dinner, so they would arrange transport from the restaurants to collect you and drop you off after the meal. This is a service that the restaurants offer, totally free!

Every review I read on here before we went mentioned the breakfast, and it honestly is probably THE best breakfast I have ever had! Sat on a table overlooking the sea you are treated to fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, crusty bread, marmalade and jams from the grove, prosciutto ham and at least 5 homemade cakes!! As well as yogurts, fresh fruit and boiled eggs, all served with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice. It was heavenly! The owner is a lovely lady who is extremely welcoming and always seems genuinely happy to see you. And how she finds the time to do all of that baking, I shall never know!

A wonderful place and if we return to Sorrento, we wouldn't hesitate to return here!
