Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Aminta Sorrento
Beautiful Hotel, Excellent Service
The hotel is beautiful and is kept very clean. The service is excellent. I had a wonderful experience and met a lot of nice people. Highly recommend.
Like so many people who have never been to Italy before, I was nervous as to what I would find when I arrived at the Aminta. Everyone made my stay so enjoyable and comfortable, that I didn't want to leave. The service was amazing, the staff just wonderful and my stay was one of the best expirences I had in Italy.
Outstanding with many free benefits
This hotel was outstanding. Everyone was so friendly there. You are greeted by Aida in morning and Gennaro in the evening at the front desk. The food was incredible and the headwaiter Michele gave me a table with a beautiful view every evening. After the first day the bartenders Tony and Angelo, knew not only my name but also what I liked to drink at different times of the day.
Most hotels offer a complimentary breakfast in the morning. This hotel offers a free shuttle, free movies, free internet, and free wireless internet by the Pool!. The pool area was immaculate and had a commanding view of Sorrento.
I have had the pleasure of traveling to Sorrento many times over the past 10 years and the Grand Hotel Aminta is my favorite. For the money, the Grand Hotel Aminta is one of Europe's hidden jewels.
Best Vacation Ever Viva Italia
WOW!!! My husband and I just got back from a month long European vacation.We were everywhere-London,Paris,Brussels,Monte Carlo,Florence,Rome and then the best was Sorrento. The service @ the Aminta was by far the best of all the hotels. The food was exceptional, the staff so courteous & helpful and the room was clean,clean,clean.The views were nothing like we had ever seen before.If Leech was still doing reviews the Aminta would be @ the top of his list.Bottom line-Great Prices-Excellent Food-Superior Staff-We felt like VIP's. Thank you Hotel Aminta-we will be back.
Being new to Italy I was nervous but the staff at the hotel made me feel at ease. I highly recommend this hotel to any traveling in the area. The staff is very friendly and very courteous.
Thank you and keep up the excellent work!
Enjoyed it thoroughly
I don't know what some of the other reviewers are beefing about. This hotel is first class all the way. The staff was helpful, the rooms clean and comfortable, and the view... all I can say is WOW! Our first night in Italy, my family was very tired and we didn't want to venture out too far so we ate in the hotel restaurant. While I'll admit the food was not the best we had on our trip, it was far from bad either. The multinational wait staff was professional, prompt, and courteous. My one piece of advice concerns getting back and forth from the hotel. While the walk down the hill into town is not bad, you'll definitely want to take the bus (or a cab) back up at night. It is a hike best reserved only for those in very good physical shape!
The excellent hotel and staff
Many thanks to all concerned at the Aminta Hotel for ensuring that a truly splendid holiday was enjoyed by all members of our group, the 'Pilgrim Gadabouts' who stayed with you this week 16-23 April. You exceeded our expectations in every respect. We would gladly commend the Aminta Hotel as a place of very real quality with regard to accommodation, cuisine and everything else that goes towards a happy holiday. Molte grazie.
Pax et Bonum
For tour groups only
Spent one night, then left. Roooms were extremely bland, the hotel's shuttle to town (absolutely essential) was on an inadequate schedule, dogs howled all night, then to top it all, when you enter the breakfast room without a group, you will be ignored, then, if you have the nerve to sit at the wrong table, you will be scolded. Poor location. Poor service.
I thought the hotel was very geared towards older British tourists, the food was very bland and nothing like the fantastic food Italy can produce, on a whole the hotel and staff were excellent but if you are youngish it is not the right hotel for you. prices of drinks inthe hotel were reasonable £7.00 for a bottle of wine. fantastic views but food dodgy.

... up on the toll system and knew our running of tolls would catch up with us. We encountered the dreaded boom gate and grumpy toll attendant - with no English skills. Needless to say, we were nervous while he photographed our rig and gave us a good telling off. We told him we had come from Pisa and handed him some cash and we were on our way. I am expecting some Italian mail in the future that's for sure. Also, Italians aren't good with signage - like anywhere!! ...
... reminded me of the bomb shelter from the second hunger games movie. Very futuristic and while it didn't fit in with the old city feel, I was still impressed. The family and I are off to Nice, France now! Mom and dad leave for Paris tomorrow so it will be a quick visit for them. I'm excited to float around in the French Riviera and finally explore some night life with little bro. We have 5 nights planned here so I'm hoping to get a real feel for southern France. ...
Can this trip get any better? We left Assisi heading for Sorrento. The morning's drive was pretty uninteresting at first on the autobahn although the endless tunnels and amazing construction of the European roads are worth seeing. As we got near Naples the views were more appealing, particularly of the farm houses and farms on the sides of the road. Typical Italian buildings were set in vineyards and olive groves. One feature of the tour which we do not love is ...
... feature around the city, caused by cracks in past ancient lava flows, were also important structures for defence. Many of these deep valleys have now been built over to actually make the cities main square and other areas that are regularly used for social events. Our guide certainly gave us wonderful insights that can't be found in any tourist pamphlets and with great humour and flair. He also seemed to know just about everyone in the town! ...
... of Capri, our day trip for today. A large jet boat arrives from Amalfi, with the top open deck filled with day trippers. We sit inside with all those getting on in Positano. The trip will take 30 minutes. One of the things we want to do is take the bus to Anacapri and ride the chair lift up Mt. Solarno. This is Trip Advisor’s #1 attraction on the Island of Capri, I am guessing because of the spectacular views. The mountain is in the clouds when ...
