Returned to the Aminta on September 11th for 5 nights. The hotel arranged pickup at the airport in Naples. Immediate checkin upon arrival. Many familiar faces among the staff who welcomed us warmly. Had a room with a balcony with a sea view. The room itself was unchanged from previous visits except for a new flat panel tv. Rooms here are very clean and functional. Maid service as usual was efficient and unobtrusive.
We were happy to see that Luigi continues to manage the pool area. He made sure that we had our favorite spot by the pool reserved for us for every day of our stay.
The restaurant staff welcomed us warmly to the dining room. The food and service if anything has only gotten better over the years that we have been coming to the Aminta.
The location of the Aminta is both a plus and a minus. It is located high up on a hill overlooking Sorrento and the sea below. This makes for great views but is somewhat inconvenient for those looking to spend a lot of time in the town itself. The pick and drop off point for the hotel shuttle has changed from previous years and I'm not sure that it is as convenient. This is not a big issue for us as we have been to Sorrento many times and do not feel the need to go into town that frequently.
The bottom line is that in terms of quality, the efficiency and warmth of the staff, and overall experience it is hard to imagine a better place to stay in Sorrento than the Aminta. My wife's only suggestion for improvement would be for the hotel to open a spa on site.
