Capri Tiberio Palace

- The stylish Pan Am Suite, which pays tribute to the golden era of air travel
What To Know

- Nearly all of the rooms overlook the Mediterranean
- The spa’s sauna, steam room, and hot tub are open to all guests, regardless of whether you book a treatment
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
My wife and I travel a lot. She is European, I am Texan, so our tastes do not automatically agree. In June last summer we were invited to a party on the Island of Capri. The guests were spread over different hotels on the island. We visited several of them at their hotels, which were all high end.
We felt extremely fortunate that our travel agent booked us at the Capri Tiberio Palace. It may be the best hotel experience we have ever had.
The hotel is wonderfully located with beautiful rooms, a wonderful vibe and a staff of perfect performance. We highly recommend this hotel. Special thanks to the staff and especially to the manager Francesca. We hope to see you again soon!
Top quality EVERYTHING! Gorgeous room, gorgeous setting, fantastic service, great location. The only real problem is the food. VERY, VERY EXPENSIVE and not in a 'good value cos it was awesome' sort of way e.g, one cheese ball equated to 17 euros at lunch. Yep, one ball of cheese with breadcrumbs about the size of a golf ball. Be warned.
From the moment we walked in, the staff was very professional, and friendly, showing us all around the hotel. Our room was spacious as was the bathroom. We had a room with a balcony and ocean view. Breakfast was outstanding, with too many offerings, all delicious. Many different cheeses, smoked salmon, breads, and breakfast to order also. The pool area is beautiful.Within walking distance from all the attractions in Capri. This is a very special hotel, decor very contemporary, and beautiful. If we go back to Capri, definitely will stay at the Tiberio Palace!
The hotel is reached up a winding path from the main square above the port. We were greeted and escorted to the lounge as reception was occupied and offered amazing freshly squeezed lemonade
The breakfast is outstanding and best place to start your day on the terrace overlooking the sea
Service is very attentive, pool deck and spa so relaxing
This is a long review because we absolutely LOVED this hotel!
Since we were staying in Capri as part of our honeymoon, the choice of hotel was very important to us. We wanted a high level of luxury and service. Our Superior Double Room was €814 for two nights, which for us was expensive, but so so worth it! We also got a third night free, so that was even better.
Everything from our arrival off the boat from Sorrento was amazing. Davide, who met us off the boat, whisked our cases away to be sent up with a porter, and then gave us complimentary tickets to the funicular and directions to the hotel. On arrival at the hotel we were greeted with a glass of fresh lemonade and a tour of the facilities from Marco, who also gave us a map and several tips for nice walks, restaurants and where to get the best ice cream. His tips were great!
Our room on the second floor was bright and airy. It had a balcony with a beautiful tiled floor and some armchairs, and two additional little balconies which were just big enough to stand out on. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was all marble and soft fluffy towels, with copious amounts of toiletries. Given that many hotels don’t provide conditioner (to the extent that I now always bring my own), I appreciated the conditioner, and the body scrub.
We also appreciated the bottle of complimentary prosecco, as well as the cake and congratulations card - it was a lovely touch when we came back to the room on our first night.
During our stay, we had lunch in the restaurant once and visited the bar once as well. The lunch was good, as were the cockails and accompanying nibbles. The barman was really friendly, like all the staff we encountered. The breakfasts in the restaurant were delicious and our only problem was that we had limited space in our stomachs, which was quite sad because the pastries and cakes looked amazing and there were too many to try them all! The breakfast was included in our room price.
We also enjoyed using the spa area several times, also included in the room price, and I had a great 25 minute complimentary massage. We would have liked to book a couples massage, but by the time we decided to do this they were fully booked - our mistake for waiting too long. I would suggest that you book any massages you want to have as quickly as possible on check in.
The decor of the hotel was beautiful – I liked the quirky bar stools and the centurion helmets. I think anyone who's interested in design would enjoy staying here.
If you are wondering whether to stay in Capri or visit on a day trip, I would say you should definitely stay. There is so much to see and do there and we found more than enough to do for three days. And if you do stay, then book the Capri Tiberio Palace!
