Dear Gianfranco and all the wonderful staff at the Aminta!
Where do I start – I think by saying a huge thank you!! Thank you to you personally, Gianfranco, for all your help in organising our stay for our wedding recently. Thank you for putting us is the Suite, it was beautiful and the flowers you put in the room were gorgeous! Thank you to the reception staff for everything – nothing was too much trouble and any questions were answered and dealt with immediately. Their help with our group extrusion to Amalfi was very much appreciated and took the organising out of our hands which was fantastic. The bar staff, Tony & Francesco in particular, a special thank you to them for dealing with 24 guests at once! They were brilliant night after night. They are very friendly and welcoming yet so professional. The restaurant staff for seating our guests together every morning, the lunch staff for fantastic lunches – the pasta, pizzas and salads we had for lunch were honestly some of the best food we have eaten in Italy! and of course the wonderful pool staff for keeping the pool and pool area so clean and tidy. Everyone without exception at the Aminta is fantastic and an absolute credit to you and your hotel.
As you know this was our 5th visit in 6 years – the hotel just gets better and better! We have never returned to the same holiday destination before let alone the same hotel until we visited the Aminta in 2005. It’s fair to say we completely fell in love with the place. The hotel is in the best position in Sorrento in my opinion– far enough out of the town to not be too busy and noisy but close enough to reach on the courtesy shuttle bus in just a few minutes. The panoramic views are spectacular; we never get tired of sitting on our balcony and just looking at the amazing views! The hotel is always so clean, immaculate in fact. The staff are, as I’ve mentioned, fantastic – and the fact they are still there since our first visit 6 years ago shows what a lovely working environment you have and this shows in their service to customers. Our guests were amazed by the service, cleanliness and views at the hotel and I think you will see some of their faces again in the future! You will see our faces again without question June next year – we’re with you for life now!!!
Thank you again.
Love Kelly & Andrew Spencer xx

We have just arrived back from another wonderful holiday at the Aminta, our 7th stay since our first time in 2002. I don’t know how you manage it but each holiday somehow exceeds our expectations and surpasses the previous one. I don’t think the 2 weeks we spent in 2006 when we got married can ever be beaten for obvious reasons but the happiness at arriving and the sadness at leaving increases with every year.
When we last stayed Thomas was only 1 ½ years old and he can’t remember anything about it but at the age of 4 I’m sure he will retain some longer lasting memories. He absolutely loved his holiday, he was made to feel so special by all your staff and made some good friends around the pool, including your gorgeous son, Marco. Thomas was so upset to be leaving, he cried and cried saying he didn’t want to leave. We managed to calm him down by promising that we would do our best to come back soon and at his request, stay for 100 weeks! Both Thomas and Scott were given so much attention by the bar staff, Senior Michel and his staff in the dining room, the staff on reception and also your own family it’s no wonder they didn’t want to go home.......they had the most fantastic time. Who needs a kids club when they are entertained so regularly and taken such good care of??!
I have said this before but never have we gone anywhere on holiday where we have been made to feel so welcome and have been looked after so well. Everyone who works at the Aminta, whether they are old faces or new, were so genuinely caring and committed to making our stay as special as possible which is why when we holiday outside the UK we always come back to the Aminta. Both Lynn and I have occasionally talked about going somewhere different but we never follow it through. Why would we when we know we will never have a better holiday anywhere else? We love the fact that as soon as we arrive we are welcomed back like old friends and we immediately feel settled, allowing us to start enjoying our holiday from the very first minute. We know what to expect at the Aminta, a beautiful, top class hotel with wonderful staff who make us feel like part of the Aminta family.
Having holidayed in Sorrento both as a couple and with our families and kids we can honestly say that there is something for everyone. Sorrento is a wonderful place and you can do and see so much while staying there. We have visited some of the most historic and beautiful places in the world over the years with Sorrento as our base but if you want a relaxing holiday I can’t think of a better location than at the Aminta. With it being quite high up out of the centre, the views of Sorrento, the Bay of Naples, Vesuvius, Capri & Ischia are stunning. Even after all this time I find the views from the balcony and terraces as breath taking as the first time. The courtesy buses in and out of Sorrento from the hotel are more regular than they used to be which is great as we were able to nip down at almost any time during the day and evening. The walk down into Sorrento is also highly recommended as again, the views are amazing and I would strongly urge anyone staying at the Aminta for an evening meal to dine outside, taking in the views while you eat.
On the subject of eating, of which I did plenty judging by the scales on my return home (!), I cannot fault the food either at breakfast, lunch or dinner. The choice of food available at breakfast time is enormous with both cooked and cold options. When we had room for lunch we usually chose one of the mouth watering pasta dishes or one of the delicious parma ham/melon/buffalo mozzarella/tomato options. My compliments must go to the chef for the evening meals which were always varied, beautifully presented and very tasty. There was only ever food left on our plates when we literally couldn’t eat any more! And as for the desserts........yum! Thomas is certainly missing those back home!
The only downside to staying at the Aminta is that we have to go home eventually........we only wish we could have stayed longer! Hopefully we will be able to next time but in the meantime we have our photos, camcorder footage and most importantly lots of fond memories of another truly wonderful holiday to keep us going.
Our thanks and best wishes for the rest of the year go to you Gianfranco, your lovely family and everyone who works at the Aminta. We will really miss you all!
With our love, Phil, Lynn, Scott & Thomas

It is now over a week since we finished our holiday at your hotel and we thought we ought to contact you and thank you for an excellent holiday. Everything about our stay was first class and we must compliment ALL the staff on their politeness and endeavours to make our stay such a memorable one. We hope that we are able to revisit in the near future.
Once again - Thank You.

We came to Hotel Aminta 3 years ago and had a really lovely holiday. The rooms, food, staff and views were all great and we went on some great trips including Pompeii and Capri. We are now looking forward to coming back to the hotel in August - can't wait!

We stayed for a week and wanted to say what an excellent holiday we had the staff were fantastic. The hotel was very clean and really lovely. The food was really great to. Thank you to all the staff. for an excellent stay hope to return again soon.
My wife and I had a fantastic holiday in beautiful Sorrento whilst staying at your beautiful hotel to mark the occasion of our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We are both very much looking forward to coming back this August to once more enjoy your hospitality. This time we will be celebrating our 30th Anniversary and can't think of a nicer place to do so
My mother and I stayed at the Grand Hotel Aminta from 24th April to 1st May this year and enjoyed every minute of it. I'd like to give particular thanks to the bar staff, who were so friendly and also the reception staff who couldn't do enough for us. Lastly, I'd like to mention the gentleman who poured the tea and coffee in the morning, who was always full of smiles - it's a great start to the day to see such a friendly face.
Thank you, Grand Aminta, for a holiday we won't forget.
Dear Everyone at the Grand Aminta,
We were lucky enough to stay with you from the 4th of April until the 11th 2011. My husband Roger and myself brought my best friend June Roberts to stay with you as a surprise for her 70th birthday. What a wonderful choice. From the moment we stepped into your hotel we were treated like royality. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The Receptionists put us at our ease, and made sure our bags were taken to our rooms without delay. Our room was lovely and the view from our balcony was just amazing. The Restaurant Staff were dressed to perfection and the high class atmosphere was everything we could have asked for. The food was excellent with plenty of choice, and the Gala Evening and the Italian Night were an excellent bonus. The Bar staff were also dressed beautifully and were so polite and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Oh how I love limoncello!!
I had been in touch with you by e-mail before we arrived regarding flowers for my friends birthday, and making sure there would be a cake (the Champagne was a lovely surprise!) I can honestly say that the flowers were probably the best we have ever seen we were bowled over by them. My friend just kept looking at them. You really pulled out all the stops to give her a really special time and we thank you most sincerely for all your help.
Our Holiday Advisor Tina was excellent as well, perhaps you could give her our best wishes, and say thank-you again on our behalf.
We visited Capri and Pompeii and Herculeum, the trips were outstanding, we enjoyed them very much. Even the weather was glorious, we were so lucky.
Sorrento itself is a wonderful gem how lucky you are to live there.
We hope to visit you again soon.
Thank you for a really wonderful holiday.
With our sincere best wishes,
Peter, Sue, Katherine, Rachel and Frances Loosley
To all at the Aminta Hotel,
Thank you so much for making our stay with our three teenage daughters at the Aminta last week (15-22 April 2012) so wonderful.
The Hotel was most efficient and very well-appointed, but above all, so friendly and welcoming that by the end of the week we felt like part of the family and didn't want to go home. So please pass on a big thank you to everybody - reception, waiters, room staff (and the guys in the bar - I loved the draught Nastro Azzuro and the girls loved the Aminta cocktails!) for helping us to have a holiday that we shall always remember - especially the girls!
With our thanks and all best wishes for the summer 2012 season,
Peter, Sue, Katherine, Rachel and Frances Loosley

Good Morning to you.....
First of all I would like to thank you all for making the Grand Hotel Aminta such a wonderful place to stay when in Sorrento – we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and hope that we shall be able to return before too long.
Attached are the photographs of the beautiful roses that celebrated the Hotel’s 50th Anniversary – I hope that they are still looking good for now but when the time comes for them to go then the photo will help you remember them.
With thanks and kind regards
David & Della Hartley
We stayed for 6 nights from 27th March. The hotel is located in a stunning position overlooking the coast towards Versuvius and down onto Sorrento. Pure magic. The free shuttle bus (or walk down into town)makes the hotel very accessible and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We hope to return in the future
Thanks for a fantastic holiday
Thanks to all the wonderful staff at the hotel. We went with a party of 16 people and all had an absolutely fantastic time. I will have no problem in recommending this hotel to anyone. Please keep the winter package deals going and we will be back. Having great weather in March was an added bonus. Thank you all once again and a special mention for Guiseppe in the bar - he was wonderful. (apologies if I have spelt his name wrong).
