Stayed here for 3 nights in a room with a balcony facing the main road, very noisy at night with cars racing up and down the windy roads. Staff very friendly. Free bus to Sorrento and back. OMG Taxi's are so expensive 25 euro's from train station to hotel for 10 min ride. Pool is nice, beer is expensive. Would I go out of my way to stay here again - No

Felt i had to write about this hotel because of some of the negative comments i have read. we have just come back from the Aminta, when we arrived we were met by the hotel porter who took our cases up to our room. The staff at reception were friendly and helpful as were all the staff. the meals were exellent, breakfast was buffet style, but if you wanted a cooked breakfast you had to pay extra, but the buffet was very good.
The evening meal was multi choice exept on the two theme nights when it was a set menu, but was four courses. waiting staff were exellent a credit to signor michelle.
although the hotel is on top of a hill the hotel bus is frequent and droped you right at the town centre, the only criticism is that they should put a bus on at 8pm.
the air con was on constantley, we did not hear any dogs barking or car horns etc. overall a good quality hotel and a fantastic holiday, we would certainly recomend both hotel and resort.

We returned last night from a week's stay at the Aminta and had a fabulous time. The hotel is located on the hill looking down across Sorrento and the bay. This is a huge plus point and I can't believe that people have complained about the location of this hotel - surely you research these things before you book?? It was a lovely 15 min walk into Sorrento along a pathway of lemon groves which offered spectacular views and we even managed to walk back up it a few times. There was also a very regular free shuttle bus service into and back from town that started at 9.00am. We had a double room with a seaview and balcony at the front of the hotel. I had taken earplugs due to previous posts complaining about the noise from the road - we heard no noise whatsoever and did not need to use the earplugs at all. We didn't need to open the balcony door at night as the room was quite cool and the beds were very firm and comfy. The bathroom was spotless and we not only had a hand-held shower but a fixed wall shower also. There was also a hairdryer which I wish I had known about so I wouldn't have taken my own.

The food was fab, we ate lunch out several times and found the hotel food to be of an equal (sometimes better) standard and there was actually more variety of food available in the hotel. There is a Gala evening once a week and gentlemen need to be aware that they will be required to wear full length trousers for the evening meals. There was plenty of choice at breakfast - cold meats, cheeses, hard boiled eggs, yoghurts, prunes, peaches, breads, pastries, croissants, cakes, cereals, toast, jams, fruit juices, tea, coffee etc etc. You could pay extra for a cooked breakfast but I thought that there was plenty to choose from. Evening entertainment is very low key however, there is entertainment in the evenings 3 times a week with a singer/piano player and a Neopolitan evening once a week with traditional Italian dancers and singing.

The staff were excellent and very professional and the hotel was spotless throughout. There are 2 PCs available with free internet access in the lobby area by reception. My husband took his laptop which although the wifi wouldn't work in our room it did work in the hotel lounge area.

And finally, one more plus point - THE VIEWS!!!!!

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.

This hotel is remarkable for its views, every day, evening, and morning they just take your breath away. We have only returned this morning but felt the need to balance some of the negative comments on trip advisor. The rooms are spotlessly clean with everything you need for a very comfortable stay. no charge for safety deposit. box in room. Flat screen TV with plenty of english channels ( if you need them). Full mini bar and great bed. The view from the balcony is better than any thing on TV. What makes this hotel extra special is the management and staff. Attention to detail is commonplace. In particular the reception staff are extremely helpfull, friendly and very informative.
Breakfast is freshly cooked and delivered to the table. There is plentifull Tea and coffee again served by a waiter.
Courtesy bus reliable and convenient, although we walked down into town (15mins) and back up (20mins) regularly. We are good walkers and many people would not enjoy the walk up.
We were not on Half board but the snacks we had were reasonably priced and of good quality.
Remember to bring your own towel's and be aware that a charge is made for use of poolside sunbeds, although comfortable deckchairs are free.
So many of the guests return year after year which is recommendation in itself. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending to anyone and will most certainly return. Thanks for a fantastic holiday.
