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
We just returned from a 10 day trip to Italy, which included a 3 day/ 2 night stay at the Capri Tiberio Palace. The hotel and staff were all amazing. It is in a great location, just a few minutes walk from the central square and all shops, but removed enough that it provides a nice respite from the crowds of Capri. The hotel decor is amazing, with all sorts of interesting touches. Each room and floor (and hall way) is different with stunning decor and fun and colorful artwork and design details (very 60s mod/chic). I traveled with my wife and 2 young children (7 and 5). The 4 of us stayed in a studio suite, which had more than enough room for all of us and had a very spacious terrazza. The bathroom was really well designed and spacious. My kids loved the bathtub that was as large as a small plunge pool. The hotel was very family friendly and the staff were all incredibly friendly. The hotel even provided special toiletries for the children. The only negative I would note (for families) is that the pool, while very lovely, is small and really meant more for quiet relaxation. It is not a space for kids to run and jump in the pool. Which is fine, just something to note for those with kids. The breakfast at the hotel is out on the large terrazza overlooking the sea. The breakfast spread if of amazing quality and variety. They bake all their own breads and pastries and the food was all A+. I highly recommend the Tiberio Palace and we will for sure stay there again when we return to Capri!
We loved our time at Tiberio Palace! Their accomodations were beautifully appointed and well thought out--the hotel room, pool, gym, sauna, dining room and lobby were all places we enjoyed spending time. The breakfast buffet was a particular highlight, and the buffet manager made sure we had everything exactly as we wished. The staff arranged transport of our luggage from the ferry, and helped with reservatioins for actiivities and meals. Highly recommend--this is worth the splurge.
The decor was featured in Architectural digest and you can see why. Every room is different and divine. The large rooms and bathrooms were luxurious. Great art, books, table top decor everywhere. Our patio with chairs and a table overlooked the sea.
The staff were knowledgable and friendly. Check in is in the bar with a fresh lemonade. They bring the documents to you to register.
Large breakfast buffet on the terrace was delicious and the staff accommodated any request.
Bar had great entertainment 2 nights we were there. Definitely worth a stop for great drinks.
This is near all the restaurants and shopping, yet down a road where its quiet and not as crazy. You can relax here.
