Would definitely return. Hotel arranged transport for us from Naples to hotel, expensive but when arriving at night you just want to get to the hotel and its 1hour 15mins away, nice comfortable trip.
Check in was prompt, porters take your cases, receptionist very helpful and pleasant, in fact all the staff at Aminta were very helpful. We chose to stay in the annexe about 100yards from main building but pleasant little walk past lemon groves, would not suggest for disabled though. Large room, a little dated and bathroom needs updating, but we had a balcony with stunning views of mount versuivas and the sea. Breakfast the same daily and not to my liking, fresh fruit and eggs to be ordered but plenty of pastries and breads. Beautiful, stunning views...pool not heated but refreshing on a hot day! No pool waiter but once drinks ordered at the bar they will bring to you around the pool. We mainly ate in the restaurant in the evening, nice food and on par with restaurants in town. Walk to town downhill and approx. 20mins, past a few dead rats on the way! Shuttle buses run hourly except for 2hrs in the afternoon and 10.30pm, godsend when you've been out all day, but you do tend to clock watch to make sure you haven't missed it. We found Italy itself very expensive, forget starters at 10euros + and drinks are pretty expensive, but main meals fairly well priced. Trips we did include: Capri by ferry, Pompeii by train, Amalfi coast by sightseeing bus (would recommend hiring a car for this as you cant really take pictures unless you are quick). All in all a beautiful place and would definitely recommend this hotel!
