Surriento Suites is a quaint, intimate B&B with two rooms and one suite located right on the beach in Sorrento. The manager, Pamela, greeted us with a welcome treat of homemade chocolate dipped orange rinds and coconut truffles. I’ve never had a more sincere and genuine welcome to a B&B!
Located right next to where the ferries port, it’s an easy walk if you are visiting Sorrento by boat. I came from the train station and was happy to walk the 15 minutes through town. Pamela was informative, caring and even offered to pick me up at the train station. And damn, does she deliver an impressive breakfast cart.
This cart was so impressive that I got a little worried it was going to be an additional charge when she rolled it into our sitting area over looking the marina. No way could this mammoth spread of yogurts, cheeses, meats and juices be included! The omelets, potatoes and mushrooms were enough to fill up both of us. The truffle provolone was a rich accompaniment that I will viciously be scouring all Italian markets for in the future. I guess they don’t call it a bed AND breakfast for nothing.
She told me in the summer she serves breakfast on the beach, but since it was quite chilly we got room service. Enjoy the view in my PJs and have a breakfast fit for Roman gods? This is an off-season difference I’ll happily accept. Each room has an espresso machine, but Pamela insisted on making us her special cappuccino. I don’t know what exactly was in it, but I’d happily have one every single morning.
All accommodations have an ocean view and start at 80 Euros during the off-season. What a steal! My entire experience with Surriento Suites in Sorrento was one I won’t soon forget at a price my wallet won’t remember.
