Hi to Gianfranco and everyone at the Aminta.
My husband and I would like to thank you for a lovely visit to Sorrento & for the wonderful hospitality extended to us during our stay. The staff were all very unobtrusive and courteous, and we found the reception desk very friendly and helpful whenever we had any questions about the area.
The elevated position of the hotel provided such amazing views of Sorrento and beyond, and was a welcome haven from the busy hustle of the town below. We also really appreciated the courtesy shuttle bus into the centre, which was very reliable and made our trips into town very straightforward. In fact the 7:15pm bus and the return at 11:15 were often so popular that extra bus's after these times might be an idea for next season.
In addition, the breakfasts were delicious - bacon and eggs served with your wonderfully rich coffee were an excellent start to each day.
We have enjoyed a lovely trip to celebrate our first year anniversary (we were married just along the coast at Positano in August 2004), and really appreciated your kind upgrade to a room with balcony and sea view - the sea view was wonderful & made for many romantic sunsets overlooking the Isle of Capri.
With very best Regards,
Chris, Sue and Mark
we arrived home today, and all 3 of us have to say that we had the best family holiday ever, the pool side bar, pool, waiter service, receptionist advice, HOTEL was great and because of the dining setting( sitting with other people) we have made very good friends with a few people from all over the country and no matter the problem there was always a member of staff to sort it out. We shall certainly be coming back to sorrento again and to the aminta to see all of the breath taking views again.

Dear Aminta Hotel,
Our Family now recognise your hotel as one of the most beautiful and breathtaking. I would be happy to return when I am older, and to visit everybody (Waiters barmen and staff) again someday. I highly recomend this hotel to anyone.
I will always remeber this hotel....
Tony, Julie and Emma
I wanted to write to thank you once again for your wonderful hospitality and generosity that you showed to us during our stay over the past two weeks. It was also a great pleasure to see you again.
In the dash away yesterday I did forget to thank you for the discount on our bill, which was again very generous - I am sorry that I did not mention it before we left. As it happens, we could have stayed longer as the flight home was delayed by three hours!
You know very well how much we enjoy staying with you but if you want to post all or any of the following on the website, please do. In any case, its worth saying again that as you know this was our fifth visit, and we were, as ever, overcome by the sheer beauty of the Bay of Naples, the Aminta's position on it which gives the most stunning views, the improvements you make to the hotel every year and probably most of all, the understated professionalism and friendliness of the whole Aminta team. Lella summed it up best when we saw her early on in our stay when she said we were "home again", which is exactly how it feels.
In no particular order, can I thank and congratulate you for:
. Making the process of booking direct with the hotel so effortless and arranging the transfers to and from the airport (everyone should book direct on-line!)
. The flowers in our room to welcome us on arrival (Julie seems to think they were for her!)
. The wonderful and welcoming reception staff for whom nothing is ever too much trouble
. The cooked breakfasts (the bacon and eggs proved too tempting too often!)
. The superb food, including the impressive a la carte menu (by the way, if you publish a recipe book which includes the recipes for the "Nerano style" and "porcini mushroom" pasta dishes, please reserve me a copy)
. The dining room staff, especially Salvatore who served us so well most evenings and Pietro, who provided language lessons and football updates.
. The new Pool Bar which looks fantastic, and the great service from all the bar staff
As with all the previous four stays, you have given us another perfect holiday. We no longer look at summer holiday brochures and will be in touch again as soon as the summer 2006 flights are available. I think we will stay for longer again next time!
Very best regards
Andrew and Alison Jackson
Now that I'm (unfortunately) back at work, I'd like to take advantage of your guestbook facility to thank all the staff at the Aminta for making our week's stay in Sorrento so memorable. Our travel agent had originally allocated us to another hotel in the area, but having looked at a couple of alternatives, we decided that the Aminta appeared to be a more attractive proposition, and we're very glad that we stayed with you instead. The standard of service was exceptional at all times, and we were also very impressed with the food on offer for breakfast and the evening meals. It was indeed special to be able to eat outside in the evenings and enjoy the views across the bay from the hotel terrace as the sun went down over Capri. We also appreciated the elevated location which provided a welcome haven of peace from the hustle and bustle of Sorrento in mid August. We certainly won't hesitate to recommend the Aminta to anyone contemplating a visit to the Sorrento area, and thanks again for looking after us so well during our holiday.

Lynn and I are just writing to thank you for yet another wonderful holiday. Even though this was our 4th stay in as many years the hotel and staff seemed as fresh and vibrant as ever and it was like coming home. It had been exactly a year since our last stay but it seemed like we had only been away for a few weeks as everyone made us feel so welcome. It was lovely to see all the same staff (you must be paying them well!) who recognised us and made us feel so comfortable straight away. By the way, we love what you have done to the outside bar, it has a really stylish and modern look, in line with the rest of the Aminta.
As you know this short stay was partly a scouting mission in order to make some arrangements for our wedding next year and we are so grateful to have had your personal assistance. We appreciate everything you have done for us and feel totally relaxed that everything is in order for ours and our families’ stay next year. We have told everyone how fantastic the Aminta is and shown them so many photos and camcorder footage that they feel like they have been themselves! What they can’t yet appreciate however, is the beauty of the area in person, the fantastic views and the amazing service you and your staff offer – something that they are really looking forward to experiencing.
Once again Gianfranco, thank you for everything you have done for us and we look forward to seeing you next May.

Dear Friends at the Aminta:
Mi scusi...per favore
I just realized after reading the various emails from previous guests that our sincere thanks and gratitude were never sent to the wonderful staff at the Grand Aminta Hotel.
Our stay in June of 2004 will be remembered forever...the wonderful service and care that was extended to my entire family is greatly appreciated. It was our first total family visit to Italy with children, grandchildren and spouses...meraviglioso....a special "Grazie" to Vincenzo and Victoria who made our visit very special...as this was "il paese di mio padre".
Our leaving the Aminta was with mixed emotions...Tears and cheers !!! As we were on to new adventures in glorious Italy....but we shall return...hopefully soon.
Saluti a tutti e amore a tutti,
I wanted to send an e mail to say thank you for a fantastic stay at the Aminta and to express my heartfelt thanks for your staff being so helpful and honest. One incident in particular will stand out in my mind for ever. My wife left her jewellery in the hotel room after checking out and we traveled to Roma without noticing. When in Roma we discovered our error and called the Aminta, all were extremely helpful...the jewellery was couriered to our hotel in Roma in time for our flight back to Canada.
Thank you very much...if ever in the area again the Aminta will be our choice

To all the staff
We just wanted to thank you for making our first visit to Sorrento a memorable one! Food excellent, wonderful views and everyone was very helpful and friendly. We certainly kept Alessandro busy in the bar and would like to thank him for the Italian lessons! Liberato's excellent wine recommendations will certainly have depleted your stock of Cappello di Priete!
Mille grazie for making us feel so welcome and we will certainly be back!
Debbie, Jon and Christine
We really enjoyed our stay at The Aminta 15th - 22nd July 2005. The views from the hotel were amazing, the food fantastic, and the staff and people of Sorrento
were so friendly and kind.
We will be back!

We have just returned from a wonderful 2 week stay at the Grand Hotel Aminta and are just writing to thank all of the staff for taking such good care of us. Everybody went out of their way to ensure that we had a brilliant time and we can't wait to come back again. We have told all of our friends and family about how friendly and professional the staff are and how beautiful the views are too! The photographs don't do it justice! With thanks to the restaurant staff and of course the bar staff (whom we kept particularly busy!)
We have included a few photographs and we hope to see you again soon,

Armoniosi sorrisi vedendo il
Innumerevoli sorprese racchiuse
Nel cuore del viaggio
Al risveglio il rumore delle onde,
Manovrate dal vento, che le culla dolcemente.
In un paradiso dove
Nessun rumore disturba la quiete.
Tutti sono rilassati e felici nella veduta del mare.
A Sorrento all'Aminta devi andare se tutto ciò vuoi trovare!

Dear Gianfranco and all the staff,
Thank you for a wonderful 2 weeks. This is 12 times! We first came in 1994, each time it gets better and better.
Especially thank you to Michael for all the lovely food and looking after Arturio so well! We made some very good friends and had a lot of fun and relaxation.
Goodbye to Michelle and Leila who was on holiday when we left. We will definitely be back again in 2006........hopefully! I can't break the cycle of 12 years.
