We recently stayed at the Minverva Hotel in Sorrento. Italy and it was one of the most enjoyable trips we have done. We have travelled to St Tropez, Monaco, Cannes and other exotic Riviera locations and the Hotel Minerva tops the lot. The view from the Hotel would have to be one of the best in Sorrento looking back over the bay and the town as well as Mount Vesuvius. It is a short walk (10-15 mins) to the town centre and it is just as easy to walk to the port to catch boats to Posotano, Amalfi, Capri etc. The Hotel was great, it had two separate pools, both with great views over the bay, restaurant, bar etc. and it was a welcomed break after doing daily tours and each night there was entertainment which was relaxing to soak up the Italian atmosphere. The food at the hotel was good, however we chose to eat in town most evenings.
We found most people at the hotel were mature age with very few kids which was great as there were no loud noisy pool side activities etc which you often find and all inclusive hotels through packaged deals.
The rooms were standard and had everything you need including mini bar, TV with Sky, airconditioning etc. The beds were firm which we found okay. The view from the rooms was amazing. I would suggest getting a room above the pool, restaurant area, this is much quieter than the lower level rooms as there is a road in front of the Hotel, but you do not really here the traffic too much.
The staff the hotel were brilliant and extremely helpful. It feels like the hotel is family as they are very warm and always ready to help. On getting our bus to the airport when leaving, the staff packed a travel bag with food, drinks etc. at no cost. A special thanks to Nino in the restaurant and Antonio in the bar for making our stay at the hotel so enjoyable. We will definitely be back.
