My wife and I came to sorrento for our honeymoon and booked this hotel as part of a January sale deal with British airways. We could not have been happier with our stay in the grand hotel aminta!
Our room was a partial view room (which still had an amazing view of the surrounding town and the sunset). Air conditioning works very well which is important for the hot weather - it is worth noting that it works only when the window is closed.
The room is very nicely sized and has a lovely en suite bathroom, complete with a bath. My wife's critique was she found the hair dryer inadequate, but that was a minor detail - we both thought the room was fantastic!
The rooms can be made up daily, with fresh toiletries and towels provided.
The other hotel facilities include:
A pool with surrounding sunbeds. These beds are free to use, although most days the pool can be busy and the hotel have a booking service to reserve sunbeds for a day (4 euros per bed per day , which is reasonable in comparison to the 12 euros in the town beach). Pool towels can be provided free of charge on request.
Food and drinks available from the pool bar. Most of the prices we felt were reasonable to average and the food is great. We dined in the hotel restaurant 3 times during our stay and could not complain about anything!
The staff are beyond helpful; they are always very friendly and will help as best they can with any request. I cannot praise them any higher!
The hotel location is slightly outside sorrento, but a complimentary bus service is provided hourly to and from sorrento. Now I know where the transport is from, it is very simple to get to from the sorrento bus station - I would recommend contacting the hotel for directions, I am sure the staff are capable and more than happy to help!
In summary, I would completely recommend this hotel to anyone: couple or family, the hotel is well suited to the needs of both holiday types.
