We stayed here for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon. We drove, and the drive along the winding single road was beautiful and terrifying - motorcycles cutting in from every direction, pedestrians strolling along, locals driving too fast, tourists driving too slow. We arrived in the evening (later than we expected) and the owner was waiting for us, and we found him and his family very kind and friendly.
Our room was clean, had AC (it was crazy hot, so this was a must), and a good size bathroom with delightfully tacky tiles of sunflowers plastering the walls. Nice view of the garden. The owner upgraded our room since he had a bigger one available, which was really sweet.
Breakfast was delicious, as described by the other reviewers, and we really appreciated the complimentary espresso (you can also have other espresso-based drinks) and fresh squeezed orange juice - the oranges here just taste so much more flavourful and you can tell by the colour - such a deep orange. Food was great, we even split a doughnut one morning and I'm drooling just thinking about it.
The only issue we had was the location. It was on a main street, which was not so nice to walk along (no sidewalk for a bit, very noisy - can't hear it from the room though, lots of traffic). It was a bit too far from the centre, which in the heat, made for a very unpleasant walk.
We didn't love Sorrento - found it very touristy, not a lot of great food (compared to rest of the places we stayed...agritourismo in Tuscany near San Gimagnano, Spoleto in Umbria, and Rome), and the beach was dominated by cafes, so you have to pay admission to access the water, except for a tiny plot which was city owned. Did make a trip to Naples and had amazing pizza at Da Michele.
