0.24km from Ristorante RuccioWe took a Curreri Viaggi transfer service car from Naples airport to the Surriento Suites. The driver was not equipped with a GPS and became lost. He had to stop several times to ask for directions but could not figure out which way to go. I looked up the name Surriento Suites, Sorrento and the iPhone map showed that we had gone three miles too far south. I finally convinced him to call the hotel for directions (he didn’t seem to trust the GPS). When we finally arrived, Pamela was already waiting to greet us at the front of Ruccio Bar & Restaurant, which is in the same building as the Suite. Pamela took our luggage up the stairs to our suite and thoroughly briefed us on the hotel, Sorrento, Capri, and Pompei. The only thing she left out was the operation of the television. We don’t watch much TV but wanted to catch up on the news in English. After fiddling it for some time, I found the CNN channel, but the signal was scrambled so it would not come in. After further fiddling, I did find the BBC channel that was in English. The suite was stocked with a variety of tea, pastries, fruit, cereal, juice, milk, bread, bottled water, meats, eggs, yogurt, cheese, coffee, snacks, and condiments., more than we could ever want or consume. The normal morning meal is served in Ruccio Bar and you have three choices of breakfasts to choose from, however, when we arrived for our first breakfast, the restaurant was closed (later we found out that it was an Italian holiday). Pamela offered to reimburse us for any breakfast that we found in the town, but we decided to make our meal at the suite and found that self-made breakfast and the view of the harbor was more than satisfying. Pamela served us special treat of hazelnut cream-filled croissants on our arrival and the second evening we found rum Babas that were exceptionally delicious. The hotel itself is located on the north side of the building, on the beachfront of the Marina Piccola. It is hidden from the view as you come down on the road from downtown to the waterfront, but the GPS will clearly show exactly where the hotel front door is located. The view from our suite was stunning and one can see Mt. Vesuvius (about 15 miles away) across the Bay of Naples. It’s all about location and we felt that you can’t beat this location for view and convenience. The Capri ferry docks only one minute away, the local bus service to Sorrento is 30 seconds away, and the Circumvesuviana train to Pompei is 10 minutes’ walk. All the Sorrento’s historical landmarks, museums, and great restaurants are only a few minutes’ walk away. We should have stayed longer and the next year we will. You couldn't ask for a more gracious, thoughtful and helpful host as Pamela.
