Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 May 2014

My wife and I have returned today after a wonderful stay at the Aminta - we really could not fault it. Excellent staff (friendly and efficient), wonderful food, brilliant views, very clean and a great atmosphere. Would never consider any other hotel in Sorrento as we felt that we had struck gold in finding the Aminta. Shuttle bus was great and always on time (you could almost set your watch by the regularity of it), the gala and Neapolitan dinners were great - experienced excellent food that I would never had ordered in a restaurant but enjoyed immensely; you won't go hungry at the Aminta and the quality of the food is very good. All the staff were first-class and really made the stay enjoyable. Great value for money and we're missing it already (been home 7 hours!!).

Room Tip: We liked being on the third floor (front of hotel - south side). Great views and quiet.

The whole family absolutely loved the Aminta. The views of the port and the town were amazing. You could also see Vesuvius. The hotel was also fantastic. The rooms were large and very clean. The food was good and service was excellent. There is nothing I can complain about. A 10:30 PM shuttle from town would be nice. We did incur taxi fees because of that rather than wait for the 11. Other than that it was a fantastic place to stay.

My daughter and i stayed in the Aminta in April for a week. We were instantly blown away by the breath taking views & in direct view of Mount Vesuvius, a great fascination of mine, along with Pompeii & Herculaneum. The staff were friendly & helpful and the food tasty, nothing to rave about but all ok. The rooms are clean & tidy and are regularly kept so by very pleasant cleaning ladies! Only downside... The noise from inconsiderate guests. We were woken on several occasions and early hours too but found ear plugs to help the situ.
The hotel offers a free shuttle to Sorrento & cant recommend trips to the most incredible Pompeii, Vesuvius & Herculaneum, enough! You wont be disappointed by this most interesting country & its unique history... Holiday of a lifetime for us:-)

We have just left after a fantastic week staying at The Hotel Grand Aminta. This Hotel was recommended to us and it far exceeded our expectations! Every member of staff went out of their way to ensure our stay was memorable and they were all so polite and smart! I'd mentioned in an email that it would be my Husbands Birthday while we were there and also the Year of our Silver Wedding and not only did they upgrade our room from Garden to Sea view with complimentary Champagne on arrival, but presented my Husband with a lovely Birthday Cake and MORE Champagne on the night of his Birthday! The Room was spotlessly clean with a huge Bed, Sofa, desk and a great Jacuzzi Bath! The Restaurant was fantastic with huge windows with views to die for! Food was excellent (I'd consider half board next time as probably better value) Buffet style Breakfast the best I've had - so much choice! Large Terrace with Panoramic views and a great Pool area (unheated, so too cold in May!) In the Bar, Tony and Giuseppi gave us great friendly service and always had time for a chat. Deborah in reception was always so very helpful (even charging my Camera for me) and Victoria just lovely too. The location is fantastic, high up overlooking Sorrento and the Bay of Naples and with the bonus of a courtesy shuttle Bus which was a Godsend - so punctual you could set your watch by it! All in all a wonderful Hotel that well deserves it's 4* rating and we will be returning! Thankyou Grand Aminta!

Our first hotel stay on our trip to Italy in March '14 was the Grand Hotel Aminta. It took a while to locate the hotel driving (took a couple of false starts up into the hills out of town), but we were blown away by the views once we got up there. It was not very busy that time of year, so they upgraded us to big rooms with wonderful views and fancy bathrooms. Rooms were quite clean and well furnished.
Parking is easy, and free.
The shuttle into town in indispensable, and very convenient. It is a fairly long walk into town.
The breakfast buffet was the best we had on the whole trip.
Unless you want to be right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of town, this place is an excellent choice for a stay in Sorrento.

I stayed 3 nights in seafront room with a beautiful view of Sorrento.
The personnel was extremely friendly and helpful.
The room was clean, size ok, shower not the best.
Good breakfast with a great view on the Gulf of Naples.
Free private parking in front of the hotel or across the street.
It's about 10 minutes drive to the center of Sorrento, and in direction to visit the Amalfi Coast.
They organize shuttles every hour that go back and forth to Sorrento.
I would definitely recommend!

The Grand Hotel Aminta is blessed with truly stunning views. The vista from the hotel is a one hundred and eighty degree panorama; Naples, fifteen miles away; Vesuvius, the brooding but dormant volcano; iconic Pomei; Monte Faito, tumbling down into the sea; the ocean liners, anchored in the Bay of Sorrento, made to look like tot boats by the surrounding hills.

The staff are all smartly dressed and very polite, could not do enough to make you feel welcome. We found the restaurant to be 'good', dammed by faint praise in this sea of opulence; weak concentrate orange juice in a region famed for it's citruses fruit?

Would go back and use this as a base for exploring the region. Capri and Amalfi coast are all just a boat ride away.
