Okay when I was in college and stayed at cheap hotels you were lucky to get a door on the bathroom...and when I was in my 20's and 30's I was never exposed to hotels that did not have a solid door to separate the toilet from the rest of the room or bathroom.
BUT at JKPlace I had been warned and read on this website that the bathroom has louvered doors!! One can be heard doing one's business and after all this time I still as a married lady want my privacy. It was most annoying and for this reason I am hesitant to rebook there.
The pool area is divine and the deck overlooking the ocean is a fab place for drinks. I did not have one meal here as we were told not to bother by a friend who has been going to Capri for 15 years. The staff was lovely and took great care of all the details of our plans. Another couple that we saw at another hotel in Italy after we left told us they had THE worst experience with the laundry ( bleach ruined his black shirt..laundry was reeeeallly pricey..200USD for 6 items) and the staff. I must admit the wait staff at the bar while kind and chatty they were MIA a lot and did not ask if we wanted refills.
The front desk staff was amazing.
When everyone moans about the shuttle I think it is just too much. One van. Enough. The guy leaves at 11 and if you miss him then take a cab.
They shuttled us to town and to the marina for our private boat ride.
They picked us up after our two excursions. The captain calls the hotel and it was so easy. The nice thing about this hotel is that if you are catching the ferry to Naples or Positano it is not far...but this is not a deal breaker for us. We spent a few days in town at another hotel that was more low key but lovely.
We liked each for different reasons.
I liked being able to walk to Da Paolino...and not have to fight to get a sun lounge by the pool. I liked the big gorgeous room with the fabulous tub, closets, fruit, water etc
Huge TV and great blackout drapes.
I did not like the loud kiddies on the public beach below..it made me annoyed as I left my kids to get away from all that and it made me miss them even more. Eventually you just tune it out...but this may bother some. We WERE below the first floor in an ocean front room and it was loud when some people bounded around but we were awake by then..so it was not an issue.
The good thing about that floor is that there are two powder rooms on that level..so I sent my spouse or I would go to the powder room for privacy that our rooms bathroom door could not provide.
The breakfast was good. They bring lovely nibbles with your evening drinks and it is a lovely place for that...drinks on the terrace.
I would not stay there again the whole time as there are many more places to investigate like Anacapri...but they do a fine job here.
( one more thing..the spa massage table was BEYOND hard and hurt my chest. I would not go again. At all. It was too painful)
