My husband and I only stayed here for one night as part of an organised tour, but I could have stayed for a week. The location is perfect, with absolutely stunning views of the bay. There is a gorgeous terrace at the top of the hotel with lounge overlooking the views, as well as a lovely pool. The restaurant also capitalises on the views, with outdoor seating so you can enjoy Sorrento lit up at night time for dinner or absorb the early morning sunshine at breakfast. Our room was very clean and comfortable, with lots of room to spread out. Our balcony captured the beautiful view, and was perfect to have an early morning coffee. The staff were very helpful and friendly, and made for a pleasant stay. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Me and my sister stayed here last week for 1 week and we both thought the hotel service and staff were amazing. I have personally not stayed at a hotel as good as this, were the staff go out out of there way and are a pleasure to talk too every day of are holiday, it was like a little family!
We went half board so the breakfast was a buffet affair which included a lot of variety such as cereal, pastries, toast, cooked breakfast, fresh fruit and even cakes! Even meals were 3 courses, which you get a menu to pick from each night, the meals were fantastic and very tasty also the staff we very nice and if you like your wine a waiter called Nino was of great help to pick a good bottle to suite. After evening meal we had a drinks on the balcony or sat at the bar and chatted with the lovely bar staff, as they were very efficient and got for a laugh a lot.
The rooms we very clean and standard was very good. All the rooms look over to the wonderful Sorrento coast which was enjoyable day and evening.
Minerva was one of the best hotels we found for the view, along with the Bristol hotel next door, as a lot of others seemed to be blocked my trees or buildings.
We did have a look around at a lot of Sorrento town which was about a 10 minute walk down the lovely coast, overlooking the harbour, which we also walked down to one day for a bit of sun and swim in the sea.
The town itself was wonderful as its a very traditional Italian town with lots of little back streets to shop on or have a bit to eat, we would highly recommend Fauno Bar in the centre square which is good for people watching too.
We found it very easy to get around and there was a lot of hidden gems, such as the English pub and 'O Parrucchiano restaurant.
We did a lot of day trips with Thomson but we decided to get the SITA bus to Amalfi, you get you tickets from the train station in the station shop and the bus goes from outside the station too, the service was good as buses came every 10 mins or so and the ticket is pretty much a day pass for any SITA bus @ €6 each.
The Amalfi coast was breathe taking and amalfi itself was nice, coming back we decided to get a ticket @ €17 each for the open top boat.
There was a lot too see and do as we also did Pompei and Herculaneum, mount Vesuvius with wine tasting, which was one of the best trips we did as the wine tasting after was at a family run some wine vineyard where we also got the best home made spaghetti with fresh tomato sauce. If you get chance go on this trip with Thomson.
All in all we loved are stay here as its got a bit of everything to do and if you love the tradional Italian culture its perfect. We are defiantly thinking of booking again for next year as it was that good. Best holiday we have had.

This hotel is an absolute gem, it's situated on one of the busiest roads in Sorrento itself. But don't let this put you off, while you are inside the hotel you don't notice the hustle and bustle of the street. The room was very loud and vibrant, not my kind of decor but nevertheless it was nice. The balcony was good and had the most amazing views I've ever had from a hotel room.

The food was amazing, the best I've ever had in a 'full board' hotel.

The pool on the top of the hotel was small but quiet and there was lots of sun beds and a pool bar. Coupled with a panoramic view of Sorrento it's a great place to relax.

I would recommend this hotel to anybody who's looking for a luxury stay in Sorrento.

We just finished a 2 night stay here. I have to start that this hotel has the most beautiful views, just as all the previous people have shared! We stayed in a big beautiful room with a huge balcony which we enjoyed each evening! The balcony was private and we loved every minute of the privacy and the view! Being truthful however, the noise from the street is loud, like real loud! This could really be an issue if you are a light sleeper....

We didn't spend a lot of time in the hotel. It is a bit of a ways to walk to the town centre, but definitely not strenuous. Our dealings with staff was minimal but overall good. There was one staff member from the restaurant who went out of his way to make us feel second class or not welcome but we figure if we can afford to stay here we can definitely afford to eat here! Haha

You won't be disappointed with your stay at this hotel... And the view... Oh the view :)

We have just stayed at this hotel for a week and it exceeded well beyond our expectations. Our holiday was for our 25th wedding anniversary and a 50th birthday. On arrival, we were upgraded to a better room and there was sparkly wine and fruit in our room and the view! Oh my word. It was an absolute delight!
We enjoyed the excellent food the hotel provided and it was eaten as we overlooked the bay on th terrace.
The staff were so warm and caring it made our holiday very special indeed.

The surrounding area offered many day trips.....pompeii, amalfi, positino, capri and other places we never got chance to see. Therefore, we ll need a trip to explore even further.

So thank you Minerva hotel for making our holiday a very special and memorable holiday for us and we hope to see you very soon.

Room Tip: Room with a view, you can't go wrong.

We stayed at the hotel for 3nights it was the most relaxing hotel we have ever stayed at the staff treated everybody like they were all family
The Managers could not do enough for us, confirming tours and transfers
The young bloke that was always on the bar went way out of his way to make sure we did not want for anything always checking that we were fine.
They had a man singing and playing a instrument in the bar area he was a great entertainer and made the night ex special it was so relaxing just to sit and have a wine

I would recommends his hotel to everybody and would come back in a heart beat
It was also spotless
We left at 5.30am and the Managers made sure we had a fast breakfast to take away
The food was beautiful as well as the waiting staff
The staff seem to enjoy doing there job.
Thank you to the Managers again for our stay we both just loved the hotel and staff

We chose to stay in the Minerva for our Honeymoon for 9 nights, as a friend recommended it, The Minerva is a beautiful hotel about a 15 minute walk from town centre, located on a cliff, with stunning views of the Bay of Naples.
Our room was large, Bright & comfortable with a large Balcony, overlooking the Bay & port of Sorrento, The Hotel has a roof top pool which we used every day, there is plenty of room to relax & also has a roof top bar. The Hotel also has a beautiful Restaurant with large menu serving fresh fish daily, the Staff are very friendly & helpful, if needed they can organise excursions, We would highly recommend taking a cruise to Capri & of Amalfi Coast & Positano.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay & would highly recommend the Minerva
