We had a fantastic 2 week honeymoon staying here at the aminta from 13-27 August. When we arrived, the hotel upgraded us to a room with a sea view. It was quite a basic room and not much space but lovely views and very clean throughout. We stayed for bed and breakfast only; breakfast is served from 7.30 till 9.30 and there is a range of choice. You can also order breakfast off the a la carte menu if you want something particular (I ordered boiled eggs a few times, whilst husband ordered poached eggs-yum!) There is also a guy that comes round and tops us your tea/coffee every 10 minutes! You can also order latte/cappuccino at no extra cost but you do have to ask for this-he won't offer it.
The best thing about this hotel as many others have said is the staff-they are so friendly and will do anything to help you out. We got back only 2 days ago and I realised I had left my ring in the hotel-didn't think there was much chance of getting it back but after a quick email to the front desk they searched it out and are sending it back to the UK for us!
We walked into Sorrento every day (and back up again!) we are young and fit and still found the walk back up a struggle but used it as an incentive for burning off all those extra calories! If you are not so motivated then getting the shuttle bus is recommended. Sorrento is a beautiful place and there are lots of trips you can do (like others have said do these independently much cheaper)
Thank you aminta-we hope to return again soon.
