Firstly, apologies for taking so long to write. I just want to thank you and all your staff for making our holiday (in August) at the Aminta so wonderful. If you remember, Andrew and I honeymooned in the Aminta in 1979 and returned to the hotel to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary in August. Everything was perfect and I must say that all your staff are a credit to the hotel and we both thought that wherever we travel in the world, the view from our room and the terrace, would never be bettered.
We shared our table in the dining room with a couple (Pauline & Keith) who were also there to celebrate their Silver Wedding (the same day, August 25th) - we got on great and spent most evenings with them. I've attached a couple of our favourite pics from the holiday.
Anyway, we certainly won't be waiting another 25 years to return, we will be back soon.
Thanks again, look forward to seeing you all again.

Dear Aminta Staff,
My fiancee and I have just returned from a week in your hotel and I want to thank you and all of the staff for the most fabulous week.
Everything about the hotel was perfect, from the rooms, to the restaurant (the best Ossobucco I have ever tasted!) to the bar but most of all the staff.
We have never encountered such high quality of service and we would like to thank everyone (especially Pietro in the restaurant. Give him a raise! He is excellent) for making our stay so easy and enjoyable.

We'd both like to thank you all at the Aminta for a great holiday.
It was really good of you to arrange for "our usual room" and the bottle of wine was a nice thought.
Everyone at the Aminta welcomed us back, it felt like coming back to our second home.
Please thank everyone for us and we look forward to coming back again soon.
Many thanks again.
To Vincenzo and the entire staff at Grand Hotel Aminta,
Although just about 2 months have passed since we stayed at your beautiful hotel, la famiglia DiStasi is still telling everyone about the best hotel that we stayed at during our entire trip of Italia!! Of course, this was mostly due to the very courteous, friendly and kind staff. Your service could not have been any better. My two sons, James and Brian were very touched by the great kindness shown them from the front desk to the restaurant and everyone in between. That meant a great deal to us!!
Vincenzo, we followed your directions and were able to drive the Amalfi Coast on our way to Salerno, however, it was so very busy, that with our rather large van, we were not able to stop along the way. But we appreciate all of your help. We do hope to one day return to Italia and when we do we will be sure to include Sorrento as one of our stops!!
We hope that if you should someday come to America that you find our hotels as pleasant and accomodating!
What else can we say but, Grazie, Grazie e Grazie!!
Thank you for a great holiday in a great hotel. We are already planning to return to Sorrento and the Hotel Aminta next year.
Pat and Irene
I would like to stay what a wonderful holiday we had at the Aminta Hotel. The staff were very attentive and had obvisously been well trained at their job. The food was lovely and it was a pleasure going into the dining room at night.
Our bedroom was lovely with panoramic views all over the bay of Naples and Sorrento. We will deffinately go back to the Aminta Hotel again. We made lots of lovely friends.
Lots of Love and hope to see you again in the not too distant future.
Hello To All
My husband and I have just returned from a week at your hotel on the 24th September 2004. I can honestly say it was one of the best holidays we had. The hotel accommodation was lovely, the view from our balcony was more than we could have imagined, our room was spacious and was kept very well all week. The food and service in the restaurant was fantastic. We had a lovely bottle of champagne left in our room because we were celebrating our Wedding Anniversary, which I can tell you we enjoyed very much, and many thanks for that. Over all a superb hotel and staff, and thank you all for making our visit to Sorrento so lovely. Just to add there is loads of trips to do in and around Sorrento.

Hello everyone at the Aminta!
I have just arrived back in rainy England after an amazing week in Sorrento at the Aminta. I would just like to say thank you for your hospitality and friendly atmosphere, it was definitely the best holiday i have had. All the staff were so friendly and welcoming and i would like to say a special thanks to Tony the barman for brightening up my evenings! I cant wait to return next year.
Good afternoon, i thought i would email the hotel and all it's staff to say thank you for your good service. My Mother and i enjoyed ourselves that much we will come back to your beautiful country. I have given a personal reccomedation to my family and friends to stay at your hotel thanks once again.

Welcome to everyone at the Aminta. We returned home on the 10 September after a superb weeks holiday. Everything about the holiday was perfect and we certainly plan to return to the Aminta next year. The friendly staff, good food and the magnificent views from our room made it very special. All the guests we met were very friendly and all sang the praises for the hotel and staff.
Thank you very much for helping to make our first visit to Sorrento so memorable.

This is a belated note to thank you once again for your generosity during our recent stay at the Aminta. We were very grateful for the flowers in the room on our arrival and everything else you and your staff did for us during our stay. The room was superb and once again, we had a wonderful time and it really was like coming home. The food in the restaurant was again very good with the a la carte menu proving very tempting.
As we said at the time, the improvements to the hotel stand out, particularly the painting of the outside of the building. To think that you managed to do this all on your own without any help from anyone else is astonishing!
The efforts of everyone at the hotel were much appreciated and there are too many to mention here. But we are always impressed by the efforts of the member of staff that looks after the pool and whose name we have never asked (what is it!?), all the bar and restaurant staff and the maid who performed miracles in cleaning our room every day.
Thanks again. We hope to see you again soon.
From the Edwards family in Cwmdare
On behalf of my family may I say a very sincere thank you to the whole team at the Aminta for turning a great holiday into a very special one! The friendliness extended from all staff was exceptional, making us feel more apart of a family than as guests.
All service was efficient, professional and very friendly, from the baggage handlers, room cleaners, reception, bar and restaurant staff, and very, very clean.
The views from the bedrooms, landings, and restaurant and bar terrace were truly beautiful; there can not be a better spot on the whole peninsular.
Special thanks from the two “veggies” amongst us who were assured exceptional meals each evening, and from the two non “veggie’s” an even greater thanks for allowing us to experience first class cooking plus service. Also for making our wedding anniversary plus my birthday cakes, both were beautiful in design and to eat.
I attach a photo of the restaurant team, but special thanks must go to all!

What can we say but WOW ! This was our third year running in Sorrento and our third stay with you at the Aminta and every year the experience gets better !
As we travelled from Naples airport the rain poured down but spookily the rain stopped as we arrived at the Aminta and the sun didn't stop shining for the next 10 days ! It was great to be back and see the friendly faces of all the staff and it was lovely to finally meet you too Gianfranco. You and your staff made us feel so special from the moment we arrived. The flowers in the room were beautiful and we really appreciate all that you arranged for us during our stay.
The facelift the hotel exterior has received during winter gave the it an extra sparkle and we have definitely fallen in love with the place. We can't imagine a year where we won't come back to Sorrento and the Aminta. This is not only tribute to the beauty of the whole area but is a huge compliment to you and your staff. Coming from England we are not used to such professionalism along side a friendly and personal service. Nothing is too much trouble and we never had to ask twice for something to be done for us.
We got engaged this year whilst in Sorrento and chose a beautiful ring from a jewellers in the town itself. I couldn't have thought of a more romantic place to have proposed and we are hoping to get married in Sorrento in 2006. We have already convinced friends and family to come out for the occasion and it would be perfect if we could stay at the Aminta. We shall definitely be back next year to make the arrangements.........as if we needed an excuse to return !
Once again, thank you to everyone from the bus driver to the bar staff and the maids to the restaurant staff and the pool attendant to the reception staff. We would like to thank them all individually but don't have everyone's names, however, Vincent was brilliant and always extremely helpful and Liberato (Mickey Mouse !) was always charming and made us smile every day.
We are already counting down the days until we come next year.
Love from us both,
Pauline, Charlotte and Helena Norman
Thank you for such a wonderful holiday. We were made to feel very welcome and looked after. Hopefully, when I next return I will be able to speak some Italian as I plan to take lessons!
May I please make a couple of suggestions?
Firstly, although the pool area is lovely, we felt that it would have been nice to have had a table tennis table and/or pool table at our disposal, especially for the older children in the hotel where they could perhaps meet up?
Secondly, I feel that you may have sold a few more cocktails by stating the ingredients in each of them on your bar menu - even the adventurous drinkers need some guidance occasionally!
Many thanks again - we hope to visit you again (when I've paid off my credit card bill!)
Best wishes to you all
Alison and Garry Bickle.
We have just checked out of the Aminta and were very sad to leave. We are two "ordinary" teachers from the UK and everythnig we write here is the truth (and we have not been paid to write this!!!). The hotel Aminta is arguably the best hotel we have EVER stayed at and we have travelled to quite a few destinations! The staff at the Aminta are the best that you will find anywhere from Aida at reception to Pietro in the restaurant to the chambermaid that cleaned our room brilliantly every day, all overseen by the excellent manager John Franco.
The room we had, looked out over the coast and was spacious, clean and in a good state of repair. It had the most amazing views and the air conditioning was spot on.
The breakfast service was top class and whoever wrote on their review the coffee was cold must have been in a different hotel. Their was a good choice of food for breakfast and it was constantly topped up even until the last minute breakfast was served!
The pool was cleaned daily and although we never got to know the name of the attendent he was efficent and provided an excellent service. A charge of 4 Euros a day was made for the sunbeds but this secured your sunbed for the day and no rushing down to put your towel on the bed in the morning! The sunbeds were made up with clean linen every day, better than I can make my own bed!
The lunch menu was superb and the food and service again first class.
The highlight of the day was the evening meal. Every night the menu varied and the choice was superb - including options for the veggies amongst us. The waiter service was of the highest quality and could NOT be faulted at all. All the waiters were courteous and efficent. The food was superb and represented excellent value for money.
The only word of caution is regarding the walk in to Sorrento, it is quite steep but the hotel do offer an excellent courtesy bus which runs very regularly and on time. We walked in to Sorrento quite a few times and it did not bother us.
What more can we say. I have never written a comment on any of the hotels I have stayed at but I truly felt that this hotel deserved ten minutes of my time to explain how wonderful the whole experience was. I have never recommended a hotel to anyone for fear they would not find it as good as we did but no-one can fail to find this hotel anyhting but excellent.
John Franco and his excellent friendly staff made our time in Italy very special and I can assure you that he will be seeing us again.
BOOK this hotel and I can assure you, you will not be disappointed!
