Grand Hotel Aminta
Ranked #23 of 100 Hotels in Sorrento
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 October 2013

We spent 7 nights at the Aminta (on half board) when visiting Pompeii and other places of interest in this part of Italy. The location is on a hill with lovely views. It is out of the town but a regular free shuttle bus service is provided. There is free wifi which was appreciated. We liked the terraces and the pool - a good size for a hotel pool. The pool is not heated and rather cold but this suited us as the people using it were serious swimmers and not for those just larking around. There are plenty of places for sitting, reading, enjoying a drink and admiring the views. The bar by the pool is attractive and the service good. Our room was adequate but the shower was very small. Many rooms had a balcony but ours did not. The breakfasts were nothing special (there was a vast array of cakes which do not suit most British tastes) but our evening meals were mostly good and the waiter service excellent. We would be happy to return to the Aminta if we go to Sorrento again.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a balcony

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. A smart looking reception area with plenty of space to relax. This continues outside to the terrace , poolside and bar where you can enjoy the views of Sorrento , the bay and Mt. Vesuvius. The hotel is surrounded by olive groves and farmsteads which , although just 5 mins drive from Sorrento, gives it a rural air. A shuttle bus runs between the hotel and Sorrento but it is possible to walk into town using a network of paths and lanes which can be accessed from the the front of the hotel. There is a limited menu for evening dinner but enough variety for most tastes. The dining room , as with other communal areas, is extremely well presented and comfortable. The food did not disappoint but a tendency to make the starter portions too large made it difficult to finish all courses. With reticence I had to turn down the puddings on a numbef of occasions! The staff in the dining room were excellent, nothing was too much trouble and this was the case with staff throughout the hotel. My wife and I would certainly stay here again.

Positioned on a hill above Sorrento this is a superb hotel with an excellent restaurant and a view over Sorrento towards Naples and Mt Vesuvius. Evening meals are excellent and varied.Only minor quibbles about bacon and sausages at breakfast which apply to most hotel breakfasts abroad (no chance of ayrshire middle bacon here).Italians seem to like loads of cakes at breakfast time - not to our taste though.

There is a shuttle bus to the town as well as a local bus service stopping at the hotel.
Staff are very friendly and I have no complaints about this 4 star Grand Hotel.

Room Tip: Try and get one overlooking Vesuvius - most seem to have a sea view though.

We stayed here for a week and loved the stunning views from the terrace, fabulous food and first-rate service.

The weather was perfect, too, and the hotel's picture windows gave clear views across the bay to Vesuvius.

The room, also with it's view of Vesuvius, was cleaned to a very high standard and the bed was clean and comfortable.

A couple of things, though stopped me from giving it the full 5 star rating. The walls were a bit thin and we could hear next door in the bathroom, and after having several pairs of stiletto heels click-clacking past our door every night as we were trying to sleep, we quickly became disenchanted with the whole marbled floor vibe, stunning though it looked.

That said, I would definitely come here again.

Room Tip: Be sure to request a room at the front overlooking the bay.

Lovely setting, stunning vistas and very friendly staff. An outstanding hotel, which I would return to again and again. Sorrento central is a very pleasant stroll, although the hotel did provide a shuttle bus. Visited as a couple, and with our daughter, who went on to visit again with her partner.

After reading previous reviews we weren't disappointed. The views are stunning, the food is varied and well presented, the staff are amazing, friendly but totally professional and the whole of our stay was a total pleasure. We had the double room with no balcony, which we were expecting, but did feel a little disappointed that there was just a clothes rail with very few hangers, but other than that we had no complaints. A great stay from start to finish.
