“"THE" place to stay in Sorrento”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Me and my family are quite a frequent traveler. Our understanding of vacation is not luxury but comfort and exceptional memories for sure. On the other hand as being a hotelier myself, I know what to expect as service. Villa Oriana is a place where we will never erase from our memories. The lemon trees behind the gate of the gardens, the warm welcome we received from the team of Villa Oriana, the welcome cake and lemonade, the prosecco we had on the terrace, our lovely room with the terrace, and the breakfast... ricotta and lemon cheese cake, mozzarella, zucchini cake and the best coffee have ever had in Italy. How can all these be forgotten...
We were so much fascinated with everything in Amalfi Coast that I thought I was exaggerating all until I directed one of my friends to Villa Oriana and they confirmed me true, experiencing all.
There is a lot I can tell more about Villa Oriana, but people may think I own the property ....
İf you ever go to Positano, stay nowhere else but Villa Oriana. You’ll understand what I mean...
Thank you my lovely friends at Villa Oriana....

Dear Pinar,

Thank you for your nice words and your review.

We will never forget you, your wonderful family and your stay. It was so nice to host your friends as soon as you had left, it was a great sign of your kindness and love for our structure and us.

Of course I can confirm that you are not the owners of the property but, in spite of this, Villa Oriana is now your house and your Italian family is here waiting for you.

Use the promo codes BEST-FRIENDS or TRIP25 when you decide to come back and you'll have a special discount.

Ciao!

Anybody who has been to Sorrento in August will tell you just how lively it is, Villa Oriana Relais is located just far enough out of town to be away from the noise of the night life but it was only about a 20 minute walk into the main square.
My wife and I stayed for a week and loved sitting on the terrace in the evening with a glass of local wine, looking out over to Naples and Vesuvius, watching the sun set over the island of Ischia.
The breakfasts are fantastic and there's a very good jacuzzi pool on the rooftop patio, which is a great place to cool off after sunbathing, and you can even have tea or coffee brought up to you.
Maria and all her staff are wonderful, and they can't do enough for you. They offer to book trips for you (I can recommend the private taxi over to Positano, Amalfi and Rufello) which pick up and drop off at the villa.
I don't really know how this compares price-wise with other accommodation in Sorrento, but we thought it was well worth the money and hope to visit again.

Delightful stay. Spotlessly clean rooms. Nice quiet location. Wonderful breakfast served by extremely helpful staff. Walk into town. A piano to play on if you fancy as well. A good find.the owner, Maria is delightful and very helpful as well. May even take you in her car and drop you off somewhere. Very sweet.

Villa Oriana Relais was one of the most amazing places to stay on a whirlwind trip. Being met at the door by Maria and sitting on the patio eating some home cooked cakes while checking in gave an amazing first impression. The views are just stunning, the room was clean and comfortable, it felt like home. To top things off, we got great support getting a resturant booking and Maria organised a pickup and dropoff from the restaurant, we felt special and looked after.

Breakfast was lovely sitting on the patio and enjoying a great selection of homemade produce. We did not want to leave. The biggest downside we only had one night… We will be back for sure

My Mum and I stayed at this hotel for three nights and would very much recommend it. The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. Maria met us at the door on our arrival and made us feel very welcome. Breakfasts were great and the room spacious and immaculate.

Only one downside is the hill up to the hotel, but this is fine if you drive. It's a bit of a walk up the hill, but don't let it put you off as the hotel is lovely and the views are beautiful. Peaceful and relaxing place to stay as it's out of the hustle and bustle of the town. Would thoroughly recommend.

An very good b&b experience in Sorrento in the midst of an lemon garden. Superb panorama view of the Bay of Naples, very friendly and attentative staff, clean and well maintained rooms. Breakfast based foremost of a large collection of cakes and sweets was a bit surprising, but ok for a one week stay.

Imagine waking up to the smell of fresh baked goods, fresh coffee and fresh squeezed orange juice everyday...the kind mom used to make or you wish she had. We traveled for a month last year. Sorrento, Villa Oriana Relais was one of our favorite stops. We traveled with another family. Their son had some severe nut allergies. Maria not only made sure nothing was contaminateId she made special cookies and baked goods for him. From the minute we walked in we felt welcome and part of the family. The owners and ladies that worked there really made Sorrento a special experience. So helpful, informative and welcoming. Would recommend it to anyone. A slight walk up from the city - enabled us to see the Island of Capris, Herculaneum and amazing sunsets. Thanks to our Sorrento family
