My husband and I traveled to the Amalfi Coast over Memorial Day in May. We started in Naples, hit Capri and then made the Grand Hotel Aminta our home for the week. I am so glad we did. Originally booked in a room in the annex without any of the "perks", when we arrived, the reception desk told us that we had been upgraded to a room in the main building and all breakfasts and dinners were included. Now, I don't know about you, but being greeted with THAT kind of message makes me a very happy camper! The rooms were spacious and comfortable. We had a balcony overlooking the pool -- and from the pool / outdoor bar, there was a beautiful view of the city and the harbor. Also, score one for the shuttle bus that went to and from the city. Plus more points for the incredibly helpful reception staff who helped us book our Amalfi Coast excursions directly with the companies and arranged for our pick-up times right out in front of the hotel. We saw Pompeii / Herculaneum and did the Amalfi Drive. Both excursions that I'd recommend ... and if you do the drive, make sure to get a seat on the "passenger side" for the best views!! Finally, the dinner at the hotel made me feel so special. Four course meals every evening served by a waitstaff in formal attire. Two nights were themed dinners and everyone dressed a little nicer - and there was live entertainment and cake! Overall, this was a WONDERFUL vacation to get away from everything. This hotel had a lot to do with that. Now we're just trying to figure out when we can go back!!
