“Wonderful views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

My husband and I stayed the Grande Aminta for the second year running, the week before Easter.
The food again was simply amazing, and the helpfulness of all the staff too.
We appreciated the free bus shuttle to and from Sorrento, but did walk the route up and down a few times, although not up on a very hot day! Out room was clean and tidy, and it was lovely to sit on the balcony at the end of the day in the sun, the previous year we had a view over the pool, so although the room was quieter, being away from the road, we did not have the afternoon and evening sun which we enjoyed this year.
The Foreigners' club certainly was very good value for money with the most amazing views, and generous jugs of hot milk with the coffee, lovely clean toilets too, which were easy to locate.
Overall, I would say it was the Dining Room experience that this hotel is so good at.

Room Tip: Quieter on the pool side, but the sun is only on the balcony in the morning, A little road noise, an...

Stayed at this hotel for a week and absolutely loved it. The facilities are great, everything nicely done. The restaurant is fantastic, food superb, and the waiters were so so helpful. We stayed in the garden annex, we were offered a free upgrade to a room with a better view, and had a beautiful view over lemon orchards and the bay of Naples. The only complaint would be the double bed that is actually two single pushed together that sometimes drifted apart, but it seems this is a pretty standard setup in Italy.

Perfect location, out away from the center of Sorrento, so nice and peaceful, but perfect for exploring especially with the free shuttle bus service into the town. Loved lounging by the pool and going for an occasional dip.

The hotel to stay in for a relaxing break. The staff were always very friendly and would always say hello, but out of the many holidays we have taken and many business trips I have done over my years of travelling the food in the restaurant was certainly the best particularly the Neapolitan and Gala evening menu.

Room Tip: For best views, request / book a room looking out to sea over the city of Sorrento.

The pool area was lovely disappointed that you had to book your sunbeds every evening and was charged a fee for this daily. The pool itself was clean but there was no shallow end so if you weren't a strong swimmer hanging to the side of the pool became a little frustrating. The courtesy bus wasn't big enough to cater for those going into town and the last one back was 11.15 which was always packed. Lovely Hotel and stunning views.

Room Tip: The Annex I heard from other guests were very spacious. Rooms in the main Hotel on the ground floor...

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!

Room Tip: Annexe choose room with balcony on first floor-stunning views

We chose this hotel largely based on reviews on here and were most definitely not disappointed. I can only echo other peoples comments about the stunning views. We had booked a room in the attic on the 5th floor and were pretty impressed with the room that had a skylight as well as a low window behind a set of doors which provided plenty of light along with some spectacular views. The room had a decent amount of storage for 2 people, think there was just one main plug socket not already in use but there was a usb socket which was handy, the bathroom was more than adequate. Only other comment on the room would be to make sure you watch your head due to the eaves.
Breakfast had a good selection on the buffet but you were alsoable to order further items from the menu including melon, fruit salad and various cooked eggs. We had one evening meal in the hotel on our first night and this was lovely and price wise probably on par with some restaurants in the main town.
We tended to make the 15 minute walk down the hill into the town but still used the hotel bus service every day, this was always very prompt. Our only bugbear with this bus service was its timings, it would run on the hour down into town and then on the half hour back from town, except there was no service between 12:30 and 15:30 and then no 22:30 which we found would be the ideal time to come back in the evening. One evening we missed the 21:30 and having not wanted to hang around until 23:30 we took a taxi from the main square, this cost us €25 which personally we found pretty steep for a 7 minute journey.
Overall we found this to be a wonderful hotel in an idyllic location, far enough from the town to allow easy access (down the hill anyway) but far enough to be quiet allowing you to enjoy the beautiful panoramas.

Really enjoyed our stay here!

The hotel is situated half way up the mountains, it's about 5-6 minutes drive from the centre of Sorrento, or about 20-25 minutes walk down the pathway that can be joined directly opposite the hotel. They also have a mini bus making regular trips into town, and when you check in the reception staff will give you a card with the times on it.

Due to it sitting in the mountains the views are magnificent where ever you are. Whether it be from the bar, the restaurant, the pool or the rooms - you're going to get a great view of the town and sea. On clear days you'll easily be able to make out Mount Vesuvius and the Bay of Naples.

Parking is available on site and there seemed to be plenty of it when we arrived (quite late) so that wasn't a problem. We had booked a room in the Annex, which is a separate building at the end of the gardens, but we were moved into the main building - probably because it was fairly quiet and they hadn't opened the Annex. Fine by us as we viewed it as a free upgrade!

The rooms were excellent, very clean and very modern. My room had a balcony overlooking the sea and mountains. The rooms all had iPhone chargers which was very convenient.

The whole hotel looked very modern and very well maintained. The reception area contained a large break-out room where you could find a sofa and just relax with a drink or two. The bar up stairs was small but jazzed up to look as if it had just had a refit! The restaurant was really nice, clean, and bright. I had the chicken and it was excellent. The continental breakfast was also very good and we were able to get away with just a light lunch because we ate so much!

All the staff (reception, restaurants, bar) were very friendly and helpful.

We stayed for 2 nights and spent our day looking around Sorrento and then catching the fast ferry over to Capri. If I were to visit again I'd be looking at the availability of this hotel!
