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
This hotel was recently renovated and absolutely beautiful. The location was central yet quiet, and the views were magnificent. I cannot say enough about the lovely and attentive staff, they made about stay a pleasure. Piera was especially helpful upon our checkout. I would definitely return.
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
