Just returned from a 10 day stay at the Aminta. I saw the hotel from it's webcams and made it my goal to stay there. 5 of us stayed, my wife, myself and our 3 children (10,13 and 11 months. We booked a room in the seperate Villa. due to keeping costs down we all shared 1 room. The room was plenty big enough to accommodate a double bed, 2 singles and a cot. The walk from the villa to the main hotel only takes a min or 2 but we found it difficult if using a pram or pushchair like we did, due to there being a few steps at various stages of the walk to the hotel. The staff are first rate, from the reception, the breakfast/dinner waiters and the bar staff. Nothing is to much trouble and they will go out their way to help in any way possible.
Due to the hotels location being high up a hill side, the views are something else, but the walk into Sorrento is hard on the feet. There is a path opposite the hotel that takes you straight into town. Its all downhill so its quite easy, but its just too steep to walk back without feeling that you have just climbed Everest. This leads me to the hotel courtesy bus. A must for getting to and from the hotel. At times the small bus can get quite packed with hotel guests, so plan to be at the pick up point about 20-30 mins before the bus arrives. The driver during our stay was a diamond. Roland was very helpful. always happy to see us and would point us to a good restaurant where we would get good food and a discount if we gave the owner his name. The hotel and views made for a special holiday and I would use the Aminta time and again. But as good as the villa was I would maybe stay in the main Hotel building next time, just to save my back from having to lift a pushchair again.
