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
Everything about this place is incredible. The service, the location, the property, the decor, the pool, the ROOMS! The beds in this place are heavenly. The linens are so soft! I like to describe this hotel as if Tommy Bahama had a younger, cooler, more successful and much more fashionable younger brother that lived in Capri, Italy, He would own this hotel. Steps away from all the premier shopping, yet secluded from the majority of the touristy traffic. Someone else reviewed this hotel stating it was more than a 5 star. I agree, it should have at least 6. I want to live in this hotel. It's amazing. You will most definitely not regret staying here.
I caught a speed boat to the island which was amazing very 007 however I was surprised that no one from the hotel met me instead I had a taxi waiting which dropped at the bag drop and wanted payment then directed me to the hotel. I found it but strange system. The hotel is beautiful inside, great interior design reminds me of Miami. All the staff are in trousers and jackets even the females. I felt it was a little sterile after the family feel I had from my last two hotels. No one remembered me or my name, the water ran cold some mornings in the room and I was cold as no heating and couple of days were rain and chilly. Room was a great layout, pool beautiful but too cold to use it. Breakfast was varied and the best staff member worked here and the person to remember me. Good location but I wouldn’t come back here maybe try a more family feel place. Oh also no coffee or tea making in the room
There is no doubt that this hotel is gorgeous and stylish and offers that genuine Capri feeling/experience. But what really impressed us and enhanced our stay was the service -- kind and genuine. From the front office staff/reception to the "summer boys" who deliver your bags to your room direct from the port to the restaurant staff....... all of them polite and welcoming. I know it's a cliche, but we really felt at home during our four day stay. Chef Francesco eager to please -- at your table wanting to know what you like or perhaps what you'd like done differently. Delicious ! A special 'grazie' to everyone who welcomed us and made us feel at home.
A stay here surpassed my expectations in every way: the cool & newly designed junior suite, fantastic breakfast, and unbelievable level of service from every single employee including spa (Claudia). Even the email communication was flawless. Highly recommended.
The hotel was really nice, amazing service and very clean. The rooms were gorgeous with great views and the hotel had a very nice pool area. As wel they had a great restaurant!!!! I would highly recommend a stay here in your visit to Capri!
