We discovered the Hotel Aminta whilst out exploring on a previous holiday to Sorrento some 9 years ago. We decided when we come back to the area we would stay there and were so glad we did. We came to Sorrento to celebrate our anniversary and the two recent engagements of our son and daughter. Everything about the hotel is wonderful and cannot praise it highly enough. The location is fabulous with the most amazing views ever over Sorrento and the Bay of Naples and with beautiful sunrises every single day. We were lucky that our rooms were all located near each other on the same floor. The hotel is just the perfect size and staff all so friendly and the service given is very special and would say much better than in some of the larger hotels. Our family had never been to Italy before so this was an amazing experience for all of them. Our only complaint would be that the holiday ended too quickly!
We look forward to returning one day and would not think of staying anywhere other than the Aminta.

We stayed for 7 nights in September 2014 and really didn't want to leave. The hotel has everything you could ask for, good location, beautiful clean rooms and friendly but professional staff. We were bed and breakfast, the breakfast choice was fabulous, but chose to eat in the hotel rooftop restaurant twice as the food was so good.
We stayed at Minervetta this June with our 2 children (11 and 14). The rooms were very clean, well equipped and had beautiful views. La Minervetta is a gem. My only regret is that the beach in Sorrento is not that great. However, getting to nice beaches from Sorrento is easy and the staff at La Minervetta will assist you with your daily excursions to old ruins, beaches or restaurants. This is a great hotel.

The staff at this hotel could not have been more accommodating, so friendly and helpful in every way. The hotel was located just outside the centre of Sorrento (about 10 min walk) and as well as the hotels bars there were other bars and restaurants very nearby overlooking the sea. Our room was lovely with views over the gardens. There is a good sized swimming pool on site and also lift down to the hotels own private beach and decking area which was fabulous. Breakfast was amazing, there was a buffet of cereals, fruit and yoghurts to begin with served with fresh coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice and then a good selection of pastries, hams, cheeses etc were brought to the table. Wonderful!! I would highly recommend this hotel and would definately stay there again should I return to Sorrento.

aside from a couple foreign hairs in the bathroom on arrival, my stay was perfect. The staff goes above and beyond. If you ask them a question or to perform a task, each staff member takes care of you him or herself. Even if it's not their job. Total customer service. The hotel rooms are lovely. The views are awesome. I had lobster stuffed ravioli in the restaurant and it was tied for my favorite meal in Italy. I would love to stay here again.

We booked this room for the view of Mt. Vesuvius and the Bay of Naples. We couldn't have been more pleased. Our room, 617 offered all for which we had hoped. It was a large room with beautifully tiled floors and bathroom. The breakfast was good with a large variety or food. We had mimosas every morning. The pool was lovely and the grounds were impeccable. We would most assuredly stay here again. It is close to the main square and shopping and easy accessibility to the town. It was a short walk from the train station through the Piazza Lauro to the hotel. The rooms were quiet and the window had grates which kept out the light. We often just sat on our balcony and enjoyed our view. I can't say enough "good" about this hotel; it was a highlight of our trip to Sorrento.

"Great staff and facilities, good location and room"
I had a really nice stay. The staff on reception and throughout the hotel were were friendly and attentive. Breakfast was varied and very tasty. The swimming pool area was well stocked with sunbeds (they also had face visors attached to shield from the sun which was a good addition!) Helpful reception staff advised on various excursions which were easy to organise transport to. The room was cleaned very well. I was travelling alone but felt relaxed there.
Arrived to a beautiful hotel, however our room was terrible! Worst we have had! Saw the hotel receptionist to complain, Tony he was wonderful said all the rooms were occupied & had to stay for two nights in that room then could change to another room it was such an improvement with a great seaview, So much spacious & comfortable.
