"Saved the best for last"
We spent two weeks in Southern Italy celebrating our 25th anniversary. I'm so glad we spent the last four days in Sorrento enjoying the peaceful beauty of Villa Oriana. It is as other travelers have described: gorgeous grounds, amazing food and incredible service. We actually rented the apartment above the main house and it was spectacular. We had a huge full kitchen, a giant living room and large bedroom and bath. The private terrace overlooking the sea is indescribable. Maria even left us an anniversary surprise. I can't wait to visit again.
"Wonderful, warm and scenic"
We were fortunate to have chosen the Villa Oriana. We knew from the moment we walked through the gate and walked down the path and were welcomed at the door by Melena. She was warm and very informative about the area. The view is spectacular and only a short walk into town. Maria, the owner baked fresh everyday for a breakfast buffet that was beyond anyplace I have ever stayed. Maria and her staff can't do enough for you and make you feel right at home. I would recommend this place to anyone going to the Sorrento area.
You cannot find a hotel with a more beautiful setting: perched on a hill overlooking the bay of Naples, surrounded by olive and lemon trees and old mossy stone walls. There are hydrangea bushes, bowers of grapes on the vine, lavender and rosemary growing everywhere. But to get to it you have quite a hike or a steep taxi bill. It's a trade off and you have to decide what's more important: do you like being in the middle of town or do you enjoy hanging out at your hotel. They do have shuttles that will take you to certain restaurants for free but we only used it twice because those restaurants were more expensive and not as good as some we tried in town. Maria and all the staff were wonderful. There was a huge, beautiful breakfast everyday. We also enjoyed a private patio off our room and a huge bathroom with a great shower and big soaking tub. The main negative, which is common all over Italy, is that the mattress was too firm by American standards.
"Fabulous time at Villa Oriana Relais"
My wife and I stayed at Villa Oriana Relais at the start of our recent trip to the Sorrento Coast and Amalfi Coast. We found this property on Trip Advisor. It did not disappoint. Its a small place - just 7 bedrooms, but it has been in the same family for 3 generations. In fact, we were given what had been the childhood bedroom of the current owner, Maria. For American's, think of this as a B&B. We don't usually like those, but this was great. They welcomed us with a nice refreshing drink on the patio with homemade cake. The house is up a steep hill overlooking town, so if you want to be in the hearty of things, this place is not for you. To get to the main square in Sorrento its either a taxi ride or a healthy walk. However, we liked the peacefulness of it, and getting taxis back and forth wasn't really a problem. The breakfasts (the only meal served here) were very good, especially the 3 to 4 cakes or pies made fresh each morning by Maria. The place couldn't have been cleaner, and the staff was so friendly and helpful. Lisa, in particular, was particularly nice and helpful. Maybe that is because she had the evening shift so we dealt with her the most. A great 3 nights there!
Maria and all her staff really are as friendly and caring as all the reviews suggest. Nothing is too much trouble for them and everything is done with a smile and a cheerfulness that truly comes from the heart. Booking trips and restaurants, offering advice, a glass of homemade lemonade on the wonderful sun terrace. The hotel is situated overlooking the Bay with a marvellous view of Vesuvius from the breakfast terrace. A simply magical place to enjoy the best hotel breakfast we have ever been offered. Everything fresh with Maria's homemade cakes a real treat. We would love to see you all again.
