“Best honeymoon hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2014 via mobile

My husband and I went to Italy on our honeymoon and sorrento was one of our last stops. The room in this hotel was huge and gorgeous. We were given a suite that was set on its own path away from the rest of the rooms with an unobstructed view of the water. The staff was extremely helpful in booking excursions and provided us with a free breakfast after we miss the buffet one morning. We did not eat in the restaurant for lunch or dinner, but breakfast was great. The hotel is set a bit away from town and was quiet and a very short walk to the action.

Stayed August 2013, travelled as a couple

Myself and my parter (lesbian couple) visited last April. Staff were always friendly and helpful. Everyday you could check the weather in reception and each evening we enjoyed happy hour at the bar. Staff would always say hello as you walked around and helpful to advise visiting attractions without having to join big groups of people on group tours. The food here was amazing I put on quite a bit of weight in my weeks stay. The views are stunning and the walk to sorento is a 10 minute wonder down hill. Everywhere was kept spotless and it was very relaxing. All in all I'd happily return.

We stayed at the Minerva for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We had a bright, spacious balcony room with a spectacular view across the Bay to Vesuvius. The roof top pool was a great place to relax with cool refreshments. Breakfast each morning on the terrace was plentiful and of good variety. It was an easy walk down to the main shopping and restaurant area of Sorrento.

Cara Signora Antonietta, cari amici,

My name is Dan (Daniele) and I stayed at your hotel with my lovely wife Alina between 19-26 April 2013 when I celebrated a very special occasion in my life, my 50th birthday. You even surprised us with a bottle of Champagne and cake on my birthday making me feel like celebrating amongst friends. Thank you!
Signora Antoinetta even upgraded us to a room (number 64 I think) with an absolutely awe inspiring view over the bay, the Villa Tritone and the city of Sorrento. But then again it's very difficult not to have magnificent views from anywhere in that hotel. It doesn't matter where you chose to have your espresso or your meal or your cocktail, the views...oh, the views!
The location of the hotel is brilliant, only a short and very leisurely walk to town, but because of that location it has the views that it has. If it would be right in Sorrento, it wouldn't be the same thing.
It is a well-kept hotel; we loved the terrace furniture, heavy cast iron with red pillows as well as the interior decorations throughout. Check-in and check-out were a breeze & a porter helped us with our luggage.
The room was pretty and very clean, had its own safe (no extra charge, important to us) mini fridge/bar and of course AC. Bed was very comfortable, bath was clean & spacious and shower pressure was great. For us, that is ALL we want in a hotel room. It had a flat screen TV but we never switched it on, not on vacation.
We were on a half-board plan (breakfast & dinner included) and we very pleased with the variety and quality of the food; espresso, croissants, prosciutto, provolone, orange juice (and more) for breakfast, pizza, pasta, fish, meat, desserts for dinner; perfect. It was also very relaxing knowing that we only had to choose the “vino” for our evening meal. Falanghina is a local wine we especially enjoyed.
On top of being a great hotel it also has great staff. Everyone was polite, friendly, kind and very accommodating. I don't want to single out anyone, because I feel I would do an injustice to the others. They were ALL fantastico and we thank them ALL!

I apologise for not writing in this book sooner, but with my daughter's wedding in Sicily this September, the travelling we've done and the professional commitments, we had a very busy year so far.
However, we never forgot you, your warm hospitality and the great service you provided, making our stay in Hotel Minerva a wonderful vacation.
We hope to see you again soon!
Dan & Alina

We recently spent several days at the Hotel Minerva in Sorrento, Italy. The place comes across as a family run hotel with wonderful service and very comfortable rooms with all the amenities necessary for a very pleasant stay. We had a lovely balcony overlooking the bay which I heartily recommend as there is always activity on the water below. The hotel is located on Via Capo which is a main street leading around the Amalfi coast, but because we were several stories above the street, traffic noise was not an issue. We were particularly impressed by the staff, all of whom were extremely helpful and whose suggestions on how to get about without a car, what to see, and how to get there saved us time and helped make the most of our time there. The breakfast buffet was very good and the maître d’hôtel is a man of great dignity who runs a fine staff with a light touch that indicates years of expert experience. The desk staff were all extremely kind, patient and helpful. Staying at the Minerva is an experience in true Italian charm, and guests recognize they are in Italy, not in some great chain hotel where you would not know whether you were in Chicago or Paris. We loved the place and particularly the large veranda where an afternoon or evening drink came with a view for which the area is justly famous.

Room Tip: Get a room on an upper floor facing the bay.

My husband and I both celebrated out 60th birthdays this year so decided to go to Italy. I cannot tell you what a wonderful time we had, we stayed at the Minerva Hotel and the views over the bay were simply stunning, we were on the 6th floor which did not have a balcony but didn't really need it the food was lovely and service good. The walk into Sorrento was about ten minutes and very easy. We did some excursions with Thomson the best being the Amalfi Drive select it was worth the 108 euros, some of the other excursions were overpriced especially Capri. We met some lovely people and will go back to the Minerva when we return to Italy. Oh and the weather was gorgeous sunshine every day.xx

This hotel was fantastic. It's not a five star luxury hotel, but it's a very good 4 star in a great location. If you like views what look like postcards while you eat, this place is for you! The views are breathtaking, truly beautiful.

The service here is excellent. We had a large group staying and every morning they put a table together large enough to accomodate us all. Breakfast quality was good, dinner was also OK for a half board option, although we like to eat out, so only ate dinner here twice. The waiting staff are fantastic and very accomodating.

The hotel is up on a hill (hence the views) but we enjoyed the 10 minute walk into town. Coming back is uphill, but no real issue for the average person.

Overall I would definately recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Had an annexe room which had stunning views!
