“A Lovely Return”
Reviewed 29 June 2012

We have just been on a return visit to the Aminta after staying for the first time 5 years ago for a special birthday celebration. This was the right choice again as the hotel is in a lovely position with stunning views of the Bay of Naples. The hotel and rooms are spotless and staff always helpful and friendly. We would not hesitate in recommending this hotel for a holiday in Sorrento.
Thankyou again to the staff on reception for upgrading our room on arrival.

Just returned from a most memorable stay at the Grand Aminta.The hotel,staff, service and food were of a 5* standard.Ideally situated in the hills with stunning views over Sorrento and the bay, just a 10 min bus ride ( provided free by hotel) into town.Everything that is said about this hotel is positive and factual,there may be some people with little fussy complaints, but overall you cannot get better value for money.Many thanks to the very caring management and staff especially Guiseppi who has our special thanks.I would highly recommend the Aminta to anyone.

Room Tip: There are several different types of room which vary according to location ( sea view,hills view,hot...

We have just returned from the Aminta after a 6 day holiday.We had booked the hotel, on the recommendation of a friend, who has been coming to the Aminta, for many years. We can understand now why he and his family have enjoyed so many visits!!The hotel is situated in the hills above Sorrento and has amazing views, from the terrace, across the Bay of Naples to Vesuvius. It is beautiful and breathtaking. On arrival you are given a warm welcome by the reception staff and your immediate impression is one of service and consideration. The reception area is spotless, as are all areas of the hotel. Our room was really comfortable and we had chosen one that had the amazing view. We were booked for half-board and the food and service in the restaurant was excellent. All the waiters were very smartly dressed, polite and friendly, in the way they served everyone. The outside terrace, where we enjoyed an evening meal on one occasion and two lunches, did not disappoint. It also has a lovely swimming pool and bar area, which again was attended by very efficient staff. The hotel ran a very comfortable shuttle bus from the hotel, down the hill, into the town. This ran during the day and well into the evening.In conclusion, we found the hotel and all the staff really very good. The main point is they have retained a service, with a capital S, which contributed to making this such a memorable special holiday.

Room Tip: We chose a room which saw the sunrise and was above the terrace, so you had views across the Bay and...

We had 11 nights at Aminta and the hotel certainly lived up to the consistently good reviews we read before our departure. The reception staff were very helpful and the staff in the restaurant were first class (hello little Petro), even remembering how you take your tea at breakfast and which drink you had with your evening meal, they could not do enough for you. All meals at the hotel were really good, extremely filling and the pasta is to die for! It was my birthday while on holiday and the restaurant staff presented me with a cake, I don't know they found out, but this was a lovely surprise and much appreciated, typical of the personal touch we experienced from the hotel staff during our stay. The pool was very nice and we never struggled to find a sunbed at any time of the day. We enjoyed several trips - the full day Amalfi drive, day trip to Mount Vesuvius and Pompei, half day Herculaneum - all booked through Thomson, although people were making their own way by bus and train which were easily reached from the terminals in Sorrento. We independently hired a speedboat from the port in Sorrento and had an amazing day going around the Isle of Capri and along the coast. Sorrento is easily reached from the hotel by a 20 minute walk into town, we did this most days and would either walk back up to the hotel or catch the shuttle bus which ran at regular intervals to and from the hotel during the day. The only small gripe about the hotel for us was that you had to slam your room door to close it and with people going out really early in the morning for trips etc, this did disturb our sleep. The clientele at the hotel was mixed, honeymooners, middle aged couples and older people, a few families with children, all very nice people. We really did enjoy our stay at the Aminta, would not hesitate in recommending it and hope to return ourselves one day.

Our 2nd stay at the Aminta (this time with family and friends) and we were not disappointed....The views and location are still magnificent, the rooms clean and tidy, the communal areas spotless and the staff are brilliant, nothing's too much!
We got married in Sorrento this year and stopping at the Aminta just made it perfect!
All our guests thought it was fantastic, although as some of our guests found out if you have a young baby it might be best to book a garden room as the road can be quite noisey (coaches beeping round bends).
Thank you everyone for a fantastic trip!

Room Tip: Seaview rooms on the Pool side are (slightly) quieter. I wouldn't recommend having a seaview on...

Always wanted to visit Sorrento and Capri and Amalfi Coast and just returned from a great week - although very hectic- staying at a very special location - The Aminta! Rated on trip advisor as the third best hotel view in the world - I would rate it second (Las Vegas would not be on my list!) We booked double with Sunset view - and although was great to watch sun go down from balcony did not make best use of it as down for dinner (on half board) when sun went down!! Had great sunsets from the hotel terrace! We were staying a spart of a group and on Half Board - breakfast OK but evening meal (set menu) left a bit to be desired on occassions. Sun beds proved a considerable problem - pool/loungers area not really big enough to serve the hotel and with a policy of paying to reserve sunbeds - 4 Euros - 24 would be a better price and sort out the bookers/non users(and the usual early morning non-paying towel planter needs better management!) and then a number left unoccupied during the day gave rise to some agro. This could all be better managed. The rooms all very clean but on small side and bathrooms in need of some up-dating (showers in the bath!) However staff very good and kept busy. Regular bus to town centre very efficient and a path to use into town an option although the return trip best via transport! All in a lovely holiday and nice hotel in a superb location!! Would consider returning perhaps especially for the view!

Room Tip: Higher floors have very best views and choose either sunset or bay view - not all have a balcony.
