Thank you for a fantastic stay, 19 years after our last visit and now with teenage sons in tow.We all loved the vast variety of food available at breakfast the coffee was the best I have ever tasted!!Everyone from the receptionists to the maids were helpful and polite, the receptionist gave us some fantastic guidance when visiting Amalfi and Vesuvius which saved us both time and money!!What would make the hotel absolutely perfect would be a buffet dinner as we found the portion sizes huge and the lack of choice on Gala evenings and Neopolitan Evening too restrictive. Apart from that one niggle everything perfect we enjoyed some lovely lunches on the terrace too.

Dear Rossella , VIctoria, Lauren and all the concierge team at Aminta
We have just returned from your lovely hotel after a seven day visit in room 217 I'm not really a person that does trip advisor reviews, so would like to thank you all personally for a wonderful time
You really all work well as a team to make it as pleasant a stay as possible for your guests and we really appreciated it.
I was a bit apprehensive and tired on arrival, regarding our room overlooking a busy road, but once door is shut at night I was not at all disturbed.
The bed was also very comfortable, which is also difficult to get when travelling in Europe.
The restaurant was our biggest treat, as I work and run a family at home, being cooked and served such wonderful food by such lovely staff made our holiday even more enjoyable.
All of the hotel members of staff, including the hardworking chefs and cleaners behind the scenes made our stay a memorable one. And the pleasant driver of the shuttle bus.
We realise it's difficult to please everyone, and some have much higher expectations than others, maybe more affluent and well travelled?? Or just never happy !
But for ourselves, and I'm quite fussy, I love Italy and I love the Italian people We visited because Sorrento was my parents favourite place, and my mother recently passed away, and my grief has been at times overwhelming.
So visiting Grand Aminta was a special week, involving memories, showing my son his grandmothers favourite places, and myself and husbands anniversary. Which happened to be on a Gala night
Thank you for making it special
Hope to return one day

We would like to say a big thank you to both families and all the staff at the hotel Aminta, des and I had a great holiday you are all wonderful people, the food was very good as usual, the weather was amazing, we always enjoy our holiday at the hotel. We also meet some nice people at the hotel. The Hotel has some wonderful views it has everything you want on holiday great hotel ,food and weather .
Wow, what an amazing week we have been treated to at the Aminta! We were there the last week in May and it was our 9th stay at the hotel. We were welcomed back so warmly and were made to feel relaxed from the moment we walked into reception. Having arrived late in the evening we were allowed to settle in to our favourite room in which we found a beautiful bouquet of flowers, a selection of fruit and a complimentary bottle of wine. A delicious platter of cold food had been put aside for us in the dining room as well, despite our late arrival. All such lovely touches.
The Aminta and Sorrento is our favourite holiday destination in the world! It’s elevated position, away from the hustle and bustle of the town itself, provides a wonderful viewpoint over Sorrento itself and across the bay of Naples to Vesuvius and the Isles of Capri & Ischia. Simply breath taking. I could sit all day & night on our balcony taking in the views. The views can also be taken in from the terrace where you can relax with a coffee, have lunch or sip a cocktail on an evening. Seeing the sunset over Capri is not to be missed. We normally visit places like Pompeii, Vesuvius, Capri, etc but this holiday we just wanted to relax and did so by chilling out around the pool which is lovely and clean with the added bonus of now being heated.
The food served in the impressive dining room at breakfast time and in the evening are beautifully presented and mouth wateringly tasty. There is a huge variety of food at breakfast time, including hot and cold options. We stayed on a half board basis so in the evening there are around 5 or 6 choices of starter and main course with a selection of desserts to finish with. There is an a la carte option too and I noticed that the restaurant currently sits at no.1 on Trip advisor in its own right. I am not surprised. We often had our lunch on the terrace at the hotel, the buffalo mozzarella cheese with tomatoes and the Parma Ham & Melon options were just delicious and where better to enjoy them than on the terrace while looking out across the sea to Vesuvius.
There is a regular courtesy bus service to take you down into Sorrento and to bring you back again but the walk down into Sorrento only takes about 15 minutes and you get some lovely views on the way down. There are lots of great shops, bars, cafes and restaurants in Sorrento and it’s a great base to do lots of sightseeing. There are also lots of nice walks that take you to Roman ruins and secluded little bays and coves where you can swim in the lovely clear sea. Ask at reception how to get to Regina Giovanna, a gorgeous hidden lagoon where you can swim through the archway in the rocks and out into the bay of Naples. You won’t be disappointed.
What really sets this hotel aside from any other that we have visited and what makes us want to keep coming back are the people that work at the hotel. They are the heartbeat of the hotel and I have yet to find staff anywhere else that come close to matching the levels that are reached at the Aminta. They are consistently wonderful. They clearly take great pride in their work and are professional but at the same time are so polite & friendly. They set the bar very high and never fall below it. I will start by mentioning the bar staff, Tony, Giuseppe & Francesco who were all very busy but still took time out to talk to my 9 year old son, Thomas, who could often be seen sitting at the bar chatting to them. They were all very patient, chatting to him in-between preparing and serving drinks. They really contributed to making Thomas’s holiday such an enjoyable experience so a massive thank you to them.
The dining room staff, led by Michele, were so attentive and polite. Nothing was too much trouble for them. All of the waiters were so good so it is difficult to single out individuals but Thomas particularly liked Marco who gave him plenty of high fives, especially when Thomas had his Napoli track suit on, his new 2nd favourite football team! It was lovely to see some members of staff who have been there since our first visit back in 2002, particularly Lella on reception and Pietro and Michele in the dining room who greeted us like old friends, which I suppose we are after all our stays at the Aminta.
All the people who work at the reception, the bar staff, the restaurant staff, right down to the porters, the cleaners and pool maintenance staff, they are all fantastic and a credit to the owner, Gianfranco. If they say they’ll do something they do it, you never have to ask twice. I contacted Gianfranco a few weeks before our holiday and asked if there was any chance that he could arrange to re-create the meal that we had at the Aminta for our wedding reception as it was going to be our 10th wedding anniversary during our stay. And sure enough, on the date in question my wife and I were treated to the most wonderful meal, accompanied by a bottle of champagne and specially made wedding anniversary cake.
I would like to thank Gianfranco and Christina for their amazing hospitality and extend our gratitude to everyone who works at the Aminta who helped to make our holiday so special. You are all fantastic and hold a special place in our hearts. We are already planning our next visit and hope to see you all again next year
Ciao, Phil, Lynn & Thomas

Dear Hotel Aminta
We have just returned to London after a few wonderful days in your hotel.
Our stay with you was such an enormous pleasure for us, that we wanted to write and say thank you. Thank you to the kindness of the staff - the reception, all the waiters in the restaurant, the chamber maids. We cannot single any individual out for special mention because you were ALL friendly, courteous, helpful.......a real pleasure. Thank you too for the room upgrade, the spumante, the basket of fruit.
As we were loading the car to leave, a member of your staff told us that wonderful months to be in Sorrento were September and October. Well, perhaps we will come again! Who knows!
With many, many thanks
Alan and Ksenija Wilding
un meraviglioso viaggio di nozze con la mia amata Lorella

We have just returned home from our amazing recent break at your hotel. I wanted to write to thank you all again for making our trip so special.
Your hotel is immaculate and every member of staff was welcoming. The food was fantastic and varied, and the waiting staff very attentive.
We were very touched on our final night when my husband’s birthday cake appeared.
You were all very thoughtful, and we very much appreciated your generous room upgrade, as did our children! Our little girl, Norah cried when we had to leave!
Thank you again to you all - you are all a credit to yourselves.

We left a week ago (30th October) and I have been meaning to thank you for a really enjoyable stay at Grand Hotel Aminta, our base for exploring Pompeii and Ercolano.
Thank you for responding to my request, prior to our arrival, for the bedding to be adapted to our requirements. Your arrangement proved ideal; we were very comfortable during our time at the hotel.
Additionally, we thought your hotel was beautiful and found the staff to be most friendly and welcoming. The views from the hotel in its serene setting are really exceptional and the service throughout our stay was both very efficient and friendly.
In my opinion the restaurant also lives up to its many glowing reviews, serving exquisitely presented and carefully prepared dishes: the best I have experienced in Italy.
Thank you again for a wonderful time at your well run hotel, which I am thoroughly recommending to people of my acquaintance.

Dear Gennaro and all staff at Aminta.
My wife Connie and I were recently guests at Aminta from 16-10-15 to 30-10-15. We were fortunate to be allocated Room 314 during our stay,and were delighted with the location of the room. We write to once again say thankyou to all the staff at tha Aminta for the always helpful and curteous way in which we, and all guests, were treated during our stay. You and the staff at Reception were especially helpful at all times,and this was much appreciated.
As you are aware; the weather during our stay was not at its best; but the standards of service in the Dining Room and all other areas of the Aminta were,as always,of the highest.
We know that you and the staff were due to take a short break after our departure,and we hope you all had a well earned rest. Once again, Thankyou.We send you our warm regards until, hopefuly,we see you all again.
Connie & Glyn Hughes.
