Staying in Sorrento Peninsula not only means discovering a wonderful land, but also establishing ties with friendly and welcoming people. For this reason the thoughts of our guests are particularly appreciated by the staff of Hotel Minerva.
Cara Signora Antonietta, cari amici,
My name is Dan (Daniele) and I stayed at your hotel with my lovely wife Alina between 19-26 April 2013 when I celebrated a very special occasion in my life, my 50th birthday. You even surprised us with a bottle of Champagne and cake on my birthday making me feel like celebrating amongst friends. Thank you!
Signora Antoinetta even upgraded us to a room (number 64 I think) with an absolutely awe inspiring view over the bay, the Villa Tritone and the city of Sorrento. But then again it's very difficult not to have magnificent views from anywhere in that hotel. It doesn't matter where you chose to have your espresso or your meal or your cocktail, the views...oh, the views! On top of being a great hotel it also has great staff. Everyone was polite, friendly, kind and very accommodating. I don't want to single out anyone, because I feel I would do an injustice to the others. They were ALL fantastico and we thank them ALL!
I apologise for not writing in this book sooner, but we had a very busy year so far. However, we never forgot you.
We hope to see you again soon!
Liebes Hotel Minerva. Tausend Dank für die herzliche und exclusive Betreuung während unseres Hochzeitsempfangs am 29.06.2013. Die Location, der Service und das Essen waren hervorragend und wir haben diese unglaublichen Stunden bei euch sehr genossen. Liele Grüße von Daniel und Sabrina aus Berlin.
Dear Hotel Minerva. Thanks for the great weddingday we had at your hotel on 29.06.2013. The meal was delicious and the service excellent. And we never forget this day in your location. Thanks so lot, Daniel and Sabrina from Berlin, Germany....Sabrina Graf
We are returning for our 6th or 7th visit (cannot quite remember which, seems like home from home) for our 45th wedding anniversary,this is the only place I could even contemplate returning to time and time again, and to celebrate our anniversary,it had to be at the Minerva, we have many friends there.
Please tell young Antonino the tattoo man is coming on the 19th,apparentley that is when the summer begins....looking forward to being there.
Best wishes. (Hope the fireworks are still on)....Gwynne & Jennifer Evans
I rarely write in guest books like this, but now I have to make an exception. Me and my two teenage girls stayed at the Hotel Minerva Sorrento from August 6 to August 15. It was a really exceptional experience that far exceeds anything we have previously experienced. The hotel is just a wonderful area a bit up on a hill, with an outstanding view of the bay, the volcano Vesuvius, Marina Grande and the city of Sorrento. The breakfast on the terrace, well what can I write? Superb, varied, though perhaps tasted extra good with the fantastic view. The hotel maintains a very high standard, and so do all the services, from the pool and bar/restaurant on the roof over the reception, restaurant down to the entrance. We will definitely return in the future, and enjoy it all again. Nor must we forget the town of Sorrento, a jewel among cities, exactly the image of Italy we have when we close our eyes ............ and the food, the food, wow! !! Perfetto, Molto bene e Grazie. Arrivederci a presto!...Håkan Skanum
Un vivo ringraziamento alla Sig.ra Antonietta ed al suo staff, in particolare i sigg. Antonino, Nino e Franco piscina, per la disponibilità, la cortesia e la professionalità che hanno reso ancor più piacevole la breve vacanza in un posto mozzafiato....Felice
We have just returned from a one week holiday at the minerva yesterday for our first wedding anniversary. I just wanted to write something to say how fantastic this hotel is. Before hand we werent sure how far up teh hill this hotel would be, it is just far enogh to have exceptional views but not too far that it is very close to walk into the main square and marinas.
It was our first trip to Sorrento and we hope to definately return again at some point, if we do I would not look at another hotel as our stay at the minerva was superb.
We were in one of the attic rooms at the top which although has a small window had a beautiful view of the bay and was very clean.
All of our meals at the hotel were fantastic. a big thank you to all of the staff as everyone was so lovely and helpful, the restaurant staff were fantastic and more than helpful preparing us a packed lunch when we were going on an excursion. Also a big thankyou to Antonio in the bar who mixes a lovely cocktail and was always so friendly to us both. The food, drink and views are so good there is no need to go far!
Thank you to you all for a lovely holiday and hope to return soon

fond, happy memories of a truly fabulous time spent at this hotel, in Sorrento and its environs in August 2010....jill and mike
The Minerva holds a special place in my heart. It's paradise on earth. Beautiful old world hotel with breath taking views over the Bay of Naples. From the moment you arrive you step down a gear; absorbed into the Minerva Family and enjoy the best that Italy has to offer. The sheer joy of de-stressing in this wonderful hotel cannot be described in words, you must visit to experience for yourself. Apart from the stunning location, the staff ensure your stay will leave you longing to return - I know I will - just not soon enough!...Tina Gaynor
We are returning for the fifth time in as many years,absolutely out of this world....Gwynne Evans
My mam and i visited Sorrento 5 years in a row and we stayed in Minerva each time we stayed....its been a few years now since we've been there...but we'd had the best holiday every time we went. Hotel is fantastic, food and staff are amazing!!! Maybe one day we'll get back when we can afford it....and we hope our friends will still be there....Susie Gaynor
Travelling down from Rome, we wondered would the Minerva and Sorrento match the start of our Honeymoon. We need not have worried. Sorrento is fabulous in itself and an excellent base for further Travel. But thats if you can tear yourself away from the Hotel. The views are simply unbeatable. Our room was spacious, clean and well appointed. The food is excellent. But maybe the Hotels crowning glory is the welcome of the superb staff. I won't single anyone out but I will say that the best Bloody Marys and Mimosa in Italy are to be found in the bar. We cant wait to go back. Thank you all again....Rachel and Gary Cogan
