Fantastic Stay !!!

Posted Jun 5, 2014
Pros: Staff great and very helpful (and knowledgeable), cleanliness second to none, breakfast very good (food is generally very good).
Cons: A few people have mentioned that there should be a return shuttle bus at 10.30 pm (between the 9.30 and 11.30 ones) - I'd agree with this !!.
Location: Location is fantastic - best views in the area.
Hotel is situated on a nearby hill overlooking the lovely town of Sorrento. The views of the town are fantastic, night and day !!, and the distant views of Naples and Vesuvius are equally impressive. The hotel provides a shuttle bus into town and back - but there is a great walk down the hill along a cobbled path which affords even better views of the town (and great photo opportunities !!) - the walk back up can be challenging (if you fancy it !!).

Roman Holiday

Posted May 28, 2014
Our trip to Sorrento and surrounding Almalfi coast was terrific. Made even more pleasant by the staff of the Hotel Aminta. The staff, service, food , room and views of Sorrento, and Vesuvius were unsurpassed. We would definitely stay there again the next time we visit the area. Thank you all for a wonderful time.

Excellent hotel in a superb location

Posted May 21, 2014
Pros: Clean, relaxed, great staff, excellent breakfast
Location: Pompei etc, Vesuvius, Amalfi, Naples, well, I could go on, but you'll never run out of things to do!
A lovely place to spend your time on holiday, staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. Excellent location for visits to Pompei and Herculaneum and Vesuvius and Amalfi

Wonderful Hotel with amazing views

Posted May 12, 2014
Pros: Location. Staff. Restaurant. Courtesy Bus
Cons: If the Courtesy Bus could drop in Town Centre and Marina it would be perfect! Robe hooks in the Bathroom would be useful
Location: Great location, high on a hill overlooking Sorrento. 10 minute drive into Town although I think you could walk (uphill back!)
Stayed for a week in May. Fantastic Hotel, great location, with staff that go out of their way to make your stay memorable. Room was upgraded to Sea view and my Husband was given Champagne and a Cake on his Birthday.! Everywhere spotlessly clean. Restaurant really special and food great. Courtesy bus was a real bonus and very prompt. Will definitely return!

Great Hotel Aminta

Posted May 8, 2014
Pros: the view and the staff
Cons: Provide a railing at the front of the hotel by the steps. After 2 hips, 1 knee replacement, I hold on as I climb steps
Location: Location good, liked the other shuttle stop better. Need to run shuttle bus later than 12:30 pm to much time before next one 3:30
We have stayed 6 times at Hotel Aminta, always taking new couples, along with repeat guests. It is always a pleasing experience. It would be nice if the owner, the brother that is in charge of the bar/restaurant would be pleasant to their guests, you see him around but never converses with the quests or asks if they are enjoying themselves.

Excellent staff

Posted Apr 20, 2014
Pros: The hotel was really clean and the staff helpful and polite.
Location: The whole Sorrento and Amalfi experience is wonderful. Unfortunately the day we went to Vesuvious the weather was wet and windy so not memorable
Really enjoyed our stay at The Grand Hotel Aminta. The staff were extremely helpful and courteous. The hotel was spotlessly clean. The food was excellent. Unfortunately our rooms were in the annexe in the garden which was quite a walk from the hotel and the weather wasn't brilliant so after getting ready for dinner in the evening we were quite windswept by the time we arrived at the hotel. Would stay at the hotel again but NOT in the annexe

Wow! What a view

Posted Apr 15, 2014
Location: Buy an artecard which gives you unlimited travel on Circumvesuviana and entrance to Pompeii, Herculaneum etc
Lovely hotel with amazing views of Vesuvius. Breakfast good but not inspired. Bar snacks limited and expensive. Had a great holiday. Courtesy bus was invaluable for going back at the end of the day.

Excellent hotel with absolutely the best views

Posted Apr 13, 2014
Pros: The amazing views and the fact that it was modern and beautifully decorated
Location: Capri, Pompei and Amalfi & Positano are must-sees.
We have just returned from a one week stay at this hotel. We are a family of four (two kids aged 14 & 12). This is one of the best hotels we have stayed at and I can't recommend it highly enough. The hotel itself is pristine and has undoubtedly the best views of Sorrento, Mt Vesuvius and Capri. The decor is fresh and modern and the staff are extremely courteous and professional. There is a free shuttle bus which runs from the hotel to the centre of Sorrento on the hour and returns on the half hour with a short break in the afternoon. We used this service every day and only used our hire car for our journey to and from the airport. The roads in this area are narrow and parking in towns such as Positano and Amalfi is difficult so we used the local bus service (and a return boat trip) and it was perfect. The hotel offers a fantastic breakfast buffet with a wide choice of cereals, breads, pastries, cold meats and also a cooked option . We stayed in the Villa Aminta (or annex) and whilst I had reservations about this before arrival, our room was lovely with beautiful sea views and very quiet. I considered a few different hotels before booking and am so glad we chose the Aminta, especially having now seen first hand the location of some of the other hotels. This hotel is a five / ten minute drive out of Sorrento and quite high up the hill but don't let that put you off booking, it's a huge advantage to be out of town and to enjoy the amazing views. First class hotel!

Great Location

Posted Apr 7, 2014
Pros: Shuttle service to and from Sorrento
This was our second stay at the Aminta the previous one being in 2006. We requested the same room as in 2006 and the hotel were able to check records and grant our request which was really appreciated. The hotel was as we remembered it ,good service ,friendly helpful staff and imaculately clean and maintained.The location overlooking Sorrento offers superb views over the Bay of Naples. A great place to relax.
