It’s hard to believe this handsome hotel, awash in a decidedly marine-like blend of blue, yellow, and coral (the vision of a Milanese designer Giampiero Panepinto), was once a Marriott. Though it’s just a five-minute walk from the bustling city center, the property’s discreet location—it’s wedged in a hushed backstreet and overlooks a canopy of lemon groves—provides a welcome respite from the island’s eager throngs. Vintage glamour surfaces in many forms, from the white grand piano at the Jacky Bar to the monochrome photographs that wreath the indoor-outdoor pool, but that doesn’t mean modern luxuries are sacrificed: the renowned spa is decked out with sensory showers while free Wi-Fi throughout the property lets guests Instagram to their heart’s content.
With monikers like Imperial and Ambassador, the suites at this seaside haven are worth the splurge for their extra-photogenic interiors—think hand-painted majolica floor tiles, travertine bathrooms, and jazzy retro statement pieces. The crown jewel here is undoubtedly the Bellevue Suite, with its own heated plunge pool, private bar, and 360-degree view of the Gulf of Naples.
The Terrazza Tiberio restaurant, the only restaurant in Capri with a separate Kosher kitchen, serves tasty ocean-flavored plates such as lemon-scented sea bass and shrimp-and-citrus linguine. No evening is complete without a Capri sunset enjoyed with a Caesar Tonic Pepper—a spicy gin-and-grapefruit cocktail—at Jacky Bar.
Capri is a just under an hour’s boat ride from the port of Naples. Upon arrival, explore the island by foot (it’s only four square miles in size) or hail a convertible taxi. If you’re game, the hotel’s concierge can help organize a trip to one of the area’s many sea caves including the famous Blue Grotto.
How to Get There
The waitstaff was beyond pleasant and accommodating. They treated us like royalty especially Aurelie. She couldn't have been nicer. She remembered what we liked to eat every day and brought it to us without asking. She showed kindness and was very playful with my kids. She made us laugh every morning. Hope you get to meet her and experience how special she makes you feel.
We recently stayed at the Capri Tiberius Palace and had such a great experience. From the moment we checked in we were treated with the most respect and personalized attention. The hotel decor is delightful and focused on the 60’s and 70’s with beautiful art pieces. When the hotel realized we celebrated 25th anniversary, they upgraded us to a beautiful suite. The guest services director, Lucky, was so attentive and checked in with us several times. She gave us a tour of the facilities which was very helpful. The location is superb- near the night life and shopping but also some nice walking trails. Make sure you use the porter service or contact the hotel prior to arrival since the hotel is located in a no car zone. The breakfast was superb and presented beautifully. I will definitely would like to go back to this wonderful place. Thank you for a wonderful memory.
Of our many hotels in Europe recently, Tiberio Palace gave us by far the most warm and luxurious welcome. From the greeting with introductions by name to the staff, tasty lemonade refreshments during check-in, and then the full escort to our rooms with a tour of all accomodations along the way, we felt like valued guests from the moment we entered.
The breakfast service was absolutely decadent on the veranda, overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea, and I may go out on a limb and say they prepared my favorite cappuccino of the trip as well! With an inclusive breakfast, we were blown away by the quantity of option, as well as the incredible quality. I was encouraged to try the sfogliatelle, which is now my favorite pastry.
The true measure of the dedication by this hotel came on our final morning. A storm was arriving, and the hotel knew our ferry was scheduled to leave at 2pm. They rushed to tell us at breakfast that the ferries may be cancelled. Martina at the front desk rushed to assist us with getting cable car tickets, and luggage so that we could make it off the island, and on to Sorrento. Luggage is transferred seperately from your trip in the cable car, so we had trouble meeting up with the person who had it, and Martina was connecting my boyfriend with the luggage by cell phone as we tried to get on the only ferry of the day, with minutes to go.
The moment we were on that ferry, he wanted to call her to tell her we made it, because he genuinely knew she was worried.
The ferry ride was insanely rough, and we couldn't get through, so I promised when I got home, I would write a review thanking Martina for individually investing herself in getting us onto that ferry, and caring while she did it. The hotel was amazing, the food was delish, and the staff was obviously above and beyond.
Walk through the doors and into a hotel that fuses a long ago vibe of the 1960's prosperity and coolness with today's exacting standards of service and function. The staff are fluent in many languages, unfalteringly polite, and helpful in any situation. The decor of the hotel and our room, was just simply delightful. Your head could not turn without seeing every corner graced with an interesting element or artistic rendering, just beckoning you to come over and have a look. Our room, a Studio with a sea view, was comfortable and stylish, with a terrace beyond measure. A gorgeous view, loungers, sofa and table, complete with flowing curtains, and bright mosaic tiled floor. The restaurant with its terrace view, is stunning, the wait staff quick and accommodating. The food, very good. Although we only were able to enjoy breakfast and lunch. The bar and its tenders were the perfect place to end each night. Music, drinks and atmosphere to match the cool, yet relaxing and inviting ambiance. Our late September three night stay was too short. An excellent property, we highly recommend.
My family came to the Capri Tiberio Palace to celebrate my 60th Birthday and we were never disappointed. The hotel itself is beautiful and all of the staff, especially Serena, went out of their way to accommodate us, from making excellent dinner recommendations, to hiring a private boat, to rescuing family members in the middle of the night who had delayed flights from the Naples Airport. Thank you for making my birthday the trip of a lifetime!
