“Fabulous view and wonderful staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

We spent one wonderful week in Sorrento in June 2014 and stayed in The Minerva. Our room had a balcony and sea view which we had requested and was worth every penny. It was a wonderful view to wake up to. You could lay in bed and see the Bay of Naples. You could sit out on the balcony and eat your breakfast and watch the boats in Grande Marina. The views were spectacular. This is not an ultra modern ultra new hotel. However, it is spotless and maintained so. Rooms cleaned every day. It's built into the cliffside and is full of character and colour. Exactly what we wanted. You won't have stayed in a hotel like this one before. The roof-top pool was fab. Every staff member and I have to stress EVERY STAFF MEMBER were soo friendly, welcoming, helpful, polite, and couldn't do enough for us. The food was of the highest quality and plenty of it. Picnics will be packed for you to take on day trips away if you ask. And they were fantastic too. We loved every minute of staying in this hotel and our trip to Sorrento. Would definitely recommend this hotel and can't wait to get back there again.

Room Tip: Sea view a must !!

just had a week in Sorrento staying at the hotel Minerva .the hotel is first class in every area.
the pool area is spotless ,the food is superb and the staff are first class.
we have stayed in some well run hotels in the states but this hotel is genuine and you are made to feel most welcome. special thanks to Anatella and Antonio behind the bar but all the staff are
excellent. cant wait to return for another holiday here.
Sorrento and surrounding area are just fab.

We arrived to a pleasant surprise which included our room being upgraded to a balcony for free. Instead of getting the twin room as we requested we got a double and a sofa bed (was comfortable enough).

The staff are very friendly and accommodating however there was one tiny thing that annoyed me. When going to watch tv one night the television did not work. After phoning the reception they said they would be 5 minutes, the person didn't turn up till one and a half later and he still didn't know what was wrong. Like I said at the start the staff were brilliant, especially the servers.

The views from the hotel are brilliant and would recommend others to stay there if you can get a good deal!

We booked the hotel via Thomson Holidays after having read the reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed ! We had the 2nd floor room with a sea view and balcony - yes we did hear some traffic noise as we were at the front of the hotel but we got used to it and we loved watching the tourists walking down to the town and of course the view of the Bay of Naples - one of the best views we have had from a hotel room. The service was excellent - nothing was too much trouble - from the reception, restaurant, pool bar and porter. The food was excellent - dining al fresco on the terrace overlooking the Bay of Naples, and the service was second to none. I would like to return to the Bay and would book the same Hotel again.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less traffic noise

We were unlucky when we were given a room on the first floor of the hotel. It was a sea view but didn't give us the great views over the bay as we had hoped when we booked. It was also very close to the road, so I would strongly recommend that you ask for a high floor room when booking. The food was either excellent or average, but the service you couldn't fault. From the time you arrive in the restaurant to when you leave, you are given nothing but excellent service. The wine waiter is one of the most knowledgeable and gave us great choices on wines. Antonio and Antonella were brilliant in the bar, their service was second to none. The property is really clean and there is very little to fault, there just needs to be a bit more consistency in the quality of food for dinner. But thank you so much to all the staff at Minerva, especially the porter (whose name I didnt get) who rescued my fiancée from a stuck lift and was very humble about what he had done. Thank you

Room Tip: Get one on a high floor
