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.

Travel Blogs from Sorrento
... we got to Almafi we did a boat trip down one coast line and back up the other side. They pointed out villas owned by famous people that you can't really get a good look at from the road but you could see from the boat. Sofia Loren's one had a helicopter parked up as well as a separate guest villa - how the other half live! A great overall view if the Almafi village and surrounding area. Lemon and olive groves everywhere ...
... going to drop us off vs the hotel, and it looked like it was a decent distance. My bag isn't super heavy but I'm not carrying it for a long time. So we got in a cab, and he told us 10€ which seemed high but whatever, it was the only cab available. It was this cute old guy who was telling us where to go for dinner, and what to see and how we have a really good hotel. We get to the hotel and check in (decent enough) and walk around ...
... so later today we hope to wet our feet in Positano. 3.30pm to Positano after a couple of photo stops on the way. We travelled the Amalfi Coast Road which was a very 'hairy' experience at times, in spite of a magnificent view. Walked down to the "beach"- a black, pebbly stretch, but the water was mild and clean and refreshing. I went up to my knees, but 2 others went in clothes and all- they had to buy clothes to wear back to Sorrento! Back by 7.30pm and hopefully an early ...
... Thank goodness for that! We saw some beautiful patches of
blue water though and heard about the history of the island.
Anacapri, the high part of the island is where the rich people go to
holiday and shop and there is a funicular to connect the upper and
lower parts. More cobbles, more sore feet. At last we had a couple
of hours to look around Sorrento before our last meal (so to speak),
... Naples we rushed off to get our luggage and then catch a bus to Sorrento. But the thing was our luggage wasn't there. We waited for about ten minutes for our luggage but it still didn't come. We were starting to think our luggage was on a different plane when five minutes later it came. We quickly got our luggage and went outside. We when found the bus to Sorrento we loaded our luggage aboard and set off. It took quite a while ...
