Reviewed 12 June 2014

The hotel and the room were beautiful and comfortable. The view from our windows and balcony were fantastic. We had a corner room and even the bathtub had the most beautiful picture window with a view of the Bay and Mt Vesuvius. The shuttle was great, we walked down to town a few times (steep and a little far but fine for us) but I wouldn't recommend walking up. We had no problem using the shuttle and the schedule was accurate so you easily plan for shuttle times. We were really glad that we decided to stay on the hill instead of in town-the view was worth it. Breakfast was really nice, we noticed some people had asked for fruit baskets which looked lovely-I am not sure why they didn't just put fruit baskets on the buffet as we didn't need a whole basket but would have had some fruit. Not a big deal, I am sure we could have asked for some. The staff was always friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: If you really want views, choose a corner room with a balcony.

This hotel is in a beautiful location just on the upland outskirts of Sorrento with incredible views over the Bay of Naples. There is a handy hourly shuttle bus from the hotel into Sorrento itself (about 10 minutes trip). The service by all the staff is excellent, with first class restaurant and bar facilities. No request was too much trouble.

Room Tip: There is a choice of sunrise rooms with balcony which have the spectacular view of the Bay of Naples...

We stayed here for a week and were very pleased. The location is really beatiful. Even though it's not in the centre it may be better since the views from the hotel are spectacular. The hotel bus goes to each direction once an hour and apart from one exception went perfectly on time and often was waiting for us already before departure time. One of the bus drivers was also really nice and friendly. The service of the hotel staff was superb and they spoke excellent English at the reception. Breakfast was really good as well, wide selection on the buffet and table service regarding coffee and tea.

Only three downsides: 1. I would have liked to see some fruit and vegetables in the breakfast buffet. Now there were none unless you ordered from the à la carte list. Although the breakfast was good half of it was sweet stuff such as pies and cookies, so not so good if you want to eat healthy. 2. The walls of the hotel room were thin which is not good if you're a light sleeper. I usually woke up several times a night to noises of people coming and going out of there rooms. 3. The shower in the hotel rooms was a bit of a joke. The pressure on the shower head was so weak it took ages to wash your hair.

All in all I would still recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayd on the second floor of the annex. The room was quite noisy but location was good, not far f...

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...
