Grand Hotel Aminta
The Grand Hotel Aminta is set on a hillside with views that drop down to the coast and sweep across the bay to Vesuvius.
The restaurant makes the most of the beautiful view and serves award-winning food to accompany it. There’s also a bar that hosts live music a couple of times a week and has a terrace that overlooks Sorrento.
On top of all this, there’s a pool that’s a good size for serious swimmers. Sun loungers fringe the edge and pop music also plays regularly to provide atmosphere.
At night, you can have drinks on the terrace with the twinkling lights of Sorrento below.
