From the Edwards family in Cwmdare30/08/2004
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,

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

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!

hello everyone at Aminta,
we returned home on the 9th of August from a weeks holiday, and we are already planning a return trip next year. The hotel was beautiful and so were the views. We would like to thank Tony the bar waiter for giving us many laughs. We would also like to thank the pool maintenance staff and our maid. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we recommended the hotel to friends!
Thank-you Aminta for a great holiday!!
We have attached some pictures for your website!

To all the staff at the Aminta Hotel...
We returned last week from an excellent holiday at the Aminta Hotel. The food was great, the pool was amazing and we loved all the people; especially the barmen who gave us many laughs. We are also grateful to the bus driver as thanks to him we were able to go out shopping in the town every evening.
Thank you very much for making our stay as good as it was, and for giving us the opportunity to meet some lovely people. We hope to come back next year and look forward to seeing you all again.
Thanks again, love from...
p.s. Here are some photos of our holiday.

We just returned on July 31, 2004 and can't stop talking about the beautiful view, sunsets, and the excellent food. All of your staff made our honeymoon memorable we could not have asked for a better trip. We thank you for your kindness and hospitality. We can't imagine staying anywhere else in Sorrento and have recommended Hotel Aminta to everyone we know. We plan to come back to celebrate our anniversary.
Grazie and Arrivederci

Well, what can I say?
My parents and I arrived back home last weekend after spending two luxurious weeks in your hotel and again, we are looking forward to our next visit, which will hopefully be very soon.
All the staff remembered who we were from last year and it was nice to spend more time with Angelo, Nando, Tony, Alessandro and of course the wine waiter, Pietro who all made the holiday worth while.
After spending time in the Aminta, I couldnt ask for a better holiday destination. This one is purely the best.
As promised to Pietro, here are some of the photos of the staff.
I cant wait for my next visit and I will see you all very soon.

Thank you everyone at the Aminta for yet another lovely holiday we had in June at your hotel.
My wife and I stayed at your hotel recently and our experience was wonderful. It started when we checked in and met Vincenzo the concierge. He was a constant star for you. He was insightful and helpful every day and he always had a smile on his face. He is a terrific asset for your hotel and we would certainly return for a visit because of him. By the way, the corner room in which we stayed was spectacular!
Your entire operation is to be commended.
Thanks again for a wonderful time in Sorrento.

Dear Vincent, Vittoria, and friends,
We really loved our stay at the Hotel. You were all so caring and so kind. We really miss Sorrento and the entire Aminta atmosphere so much, and look so forward to our return. Everything with the car turned out ok, we got to see a bit of Rome, and we able to get to all of our connecting flights. Our guests also loved the entire experience. If you visit the US look us up, if not hope to see you in December. If there is anything we can do to assist you in your success, please let us know.

Hello to all at the Aminta
Thank you for the great holiday, the staff are amazing, everything is done to perfection! I recommend the house wine to go with the meal. Please pass on my thanks to all the staff, in particular the barman who kindly translated some instructions for me (you have the most beautiful eyes!). I hope to return after university. I would like to see more photos of the staff on the site, it helps the memories.
Coral & David McCulloch 05/07/2004
Could you please pass on our thanks to all of the staff at your hotel for a lovely stay we had with yourselves last week. All of the staff were very helpful and the hotel facilities very well organised.
Freida Flores 14/06/2004
I just wanted to drop a note to let you know about the wonderful hospitality extended by your staff while we were in Sorrento on June 2 for 4 nights. We had a wonderful time and your staff was wonderful, especially the front desk personnel. Often times people are not recognized for all that they do and I wanted to take a minute and let you know that my husband I appreciate the treatment we received. I would highly recommend your hotel to anyone.
Please pass our thanks on to the staff, both at the front desk and in your restaurant.
