“Superb panoramic views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013

Overall this is a great place to stay. Once you arrive, you realise why the ratings are so high- it has the most spectacular views over Sorrento. The common areas of the hotel such as the reception area, bar and restaurant are all ofthe highest standard and there's a great outdoor terrace and (unheated) outdoor pool with another bar. Although the main road to the top of the hill skirts the terrace and pool area, the noise isn't too much of a problem. We got upgraded to a superior room and it was very clean and well-equipped although like many Italian 4-star hotels, on the small side. Again, great views over the Bay of Naples. Staff were very friendly and most spoke good English but the restaurant was a bit of a let down. Breakfast staff (mainly elderly men) were friendly but not at all attentive- so it took a very long time to get tea or coffee or to order sides and once or twice the order didn't come. The quality of breakfast (like many hotels in this region) was also well below par- poor coffee, juice and selection of cold foods. However, these were minor issues given the wider benefits of staying in this hotel. A free shuttle bus runs from the town on an hourly basis (saving the £30 or so taxi fare) but beware the three hour gap mid-day. Alternatively there's a very steep but attractive walk down to the coast road- better down than up! I'd definitely stay here again and probably will. There are some decent discounts if booked in advance.

Room Tip: Opt for a middle grade room if you book on-line. The smaller rooms look very small and the larger ar...

stayed here for a week in october 2013 as a family of four with two children aged 15 and 13.
On arrival we were greeted by a friendly receptionist who spoke fantastic english who showed us to our room. we stayed in the separate building in a family room with two double beds. We had a sea view which was worth it! the beds were very comfortable and there were never any disturbances at night.
We were on a bed and breakfast basis. buffet breakfast was very good, large selection of cakes and also cooked breakfast- you could also request other items from the menu if you wanted. One night we payed to eat dinner in the restaurant at 30 euros each (excluding drinks) and this also was very enjoyable although a little pricey.
Most days we went sightseeing, we would recommend capri (don't go to blue grotto!!) vesuvius, driving along the amalfi coast and pompeii.
The hotel shuttle bus was incredibly reliable, the driver was safe and never failed to pick us up. it runs hourly (excluding the middle of the day) and has a break at 10/10.30 at night.
This hotel was perfect for what we wanted, and would recommend to anyone looking to stay in sorrento!

We have just returned from a truly memorable holiday in Sorrento! Staying at the Grand Hotel Aminta, as we have done frequently before, we found the service , the rooms, and the food all excellent! Indeed it is to the credit of all the Family and staff that its very high standards are impeccably maintained. We heartily commend the Aminta to visitors to the Amalfi Coast!

A great place to stay if you want combine some serious sightseeing with a pool sunbathing holiday..staff are really friendly and helpful. Superb views and good food. Only fault is the inconsistent shuttle service which stops running for periods in the day..

I have had the pleasure of staying in this hotel many times and I will keep returning. It is amazing how consistantly incredible the hotel's rooms, service and food has been for the past 15 years. They never disappoint. It all starts with the friendly and welcoming greeting you receive at the front desk, through the professional waitstaff in the restaurant, to the convienent shuttle bus. The food in the hotel is amazing as well as the views of Sorrento.

This hotel is just the best for personnel, meals and refreshments and accommodation - in fact everything about it is excellent. The meals were so good that we did not venture out to the local restaurants for dinner because our view was that they could not come up to the standard of this hotel. Your staff - reception, barmen, cleaning, waiting etc - were all friendly and extremely helpful. The views were amazing. We will have no hesitation in booking a room at the Grand Hotel Aminta should we ever come back to Sorrento.

My boyfriend and I are currently staying here and do not have anything but nice things to say about this hotel. On arrival we were told we had a free upgrade to an ocean view room. The view is amazing! Our room was clean, the bed was huge, there is a window above the spa bath overlooking the city. Breakfast is great - so much to choose from!! Reception staff are wonderful. They help you with everything you need to know about the hotel and tourist attractions to see nearby. The free shuttle service from the hotel to the city centre is so convenient. Honestly could not fault this hotel.
