Travel Blogs from Sorrento
A lovely hotel set up on the hill overlooking Sorrento - fabulous views, peaceful, and easy access to the town. Highly reccommended. Sorrento was a beautiful place to visit, lively and bustling, plenty of interest, and easy access from the port to the islands and further around the coast.
... on Wednesday, we arrived at the train station bright and early, only to find out that the trains were on strike all day. Instead of this ruining our plans for the day, that father of mine had a brilliant idea and we decided to go to Capri for the day instead. We met a tour guide down by the ticket office named Giuseppe, and his guided tour of the island saved my parents from the four-mile hike I had planned for them. ...
... Limoncello ( a liquor), fantastic lemon marmalade, baba (a cake soaked in rum usually but they have it in the limoncello). I passed on all but the marmalade, and it was wonderful, it was an interesting tour but since I don't drink alcohol was not as interesting as the class we had the next day... Something out of the usual, when we arrived were told we had to wait about an half hour as they were shooting an ad or interview for the travel ...
... Never just cheese. A few weeks ago I had duck ravioli. So I was super excited for cheese ravioli. It was amazing so of course we had dessert. I got mint chocolate chip gelato with chocolate cookies in it. Sooooooo good. This had to be my favorite restaraunt I've been to. I left there so stuffed. I didn't leave a single drop of anything on my plates. I wish I could go back there. After dinner they told us a fun place to get drinks and dance. They played lots of old American music and ...
... police. There was a lovely young woman there, an interpreter, who does work there and the hospital. As Sam spoke Italian we did not really need her, but she was very sweet. We met an American couple, he had his wallet stolen on Monday, with all his cards and license etc, but they only had €400 stolen before they got all the cards cancelled.
We decided to stay as we are here and just about everything is paid for too. The weather is not great, clouds and raining on ...

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.
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.
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.
