Three friends and I spent seven days at the Aminta and wished we had chosen a hotel on the outskirts of Sorrento as opposed to being way up in the hills. The food at dinner time was ok with a good choice, except for the Neopolitan and Gala evenings when there was no choice. Breakfast was very disappointing iin that it just "continental" unlike other 4 star hotels I have stayed at before in Sorrento when the choice was vast. No fruit at breakfast time and scrambled eggs on toast cost $6. I shared a room with a friend and it was very, very small with minimal wardrobe space. My two other friends, however, had a single room each and I have to say that all three rooms were virtually identical in size. The staff at reception were very helpful and some friendly but the dining room lacked atmosphere and the bar area lacked warmth and ambience which was a pity because being so far away from the town it was where we spent most of our evenings after dinner. After using the courtesy bus to take us to Sorrento one evening, a taxi back from the Piazzo Tasso cost us $28 so we did not venture out much after dinner. Perhaps the Aminta is graded a 4* due to the view but in my opinion for little else.
