We booked to stay for my 40th Birthday, and from the moment we arrived until the sad time we had to leave EVERYTHING was perfect. It simply could not of been any better. We rented the Junior Suite, and the view from our balcony was unbelievable. A bottle of champagne and some lovely deserts awaited us on our first day. The attention to detail was incredible.
Our room was on a split level, so dressing room and lounge area downstairs, with the bedroom and bathroom upstairs. All the fittings and fixtures are of the highest quality, everything worked, it was all spotless and what you would expect from a hotel of this quality.
The only one thing worth mentioning about the Junior Suite, is that the ceiling height upstairs in the bedroom in places is only 6 foot, and being 6ft 3 i had to be careful i didn't bump my head, but that really didn't bother me, i was there for the views, luxury and atmosphere.
Sky TV with some English channels made us feel at home when watching TV late in the evening and the bathroom with LED lighting was a cool modern feature. The whole design of the rooms and style of the hotel oozes quality with a modern twist. The room had 3 air-con units in it to keep us cool (was 30 - 35 degrees outside whilst we were staying - June 17th 2013)
Nothing was ever too much trouble. I share the same birthday with my partner, and they arranged for a beautiful arrangement of flowers to be sent to the room on our special day together. We got engaged that afternoon, down at the Faraglioni rocks which the hotel over looks, so this place will always hold a special place in our hearts.
We had our birthday / engagement meal at the hotel, and to be fair it was by far the best meal we had over the entire 5 day trip. The breakfast menu and waiters who served us were all very polite and chatty and really made us feel welcome. Same applied to the hotel receptionists and even the cleaners ! Everyone has been trained to perfection to ensure your stay with them is as perfect as it can be. Their English is perfect so there is no language barrier.
I've read a couple of bad reports for this hotel on here, but all i can say is take these with a pinch of salt ! I run my own business and have 99% satisfied customers, but you'll always get something that goes wrong and things don't live up to peoples, sometimes over demanding expectations. Just read the 4 and 5 star reviews of this hotel, of which there are plenty. These give the true reflection of what this hotel is all about.
The hotel has 2 pools. 1 heated with spa jets, 1 non heated and much deeper. All the gardens and surrounding sun bathing areas / bar / walkways etc are spotless, with amazing plant life and flowers. At night lots of coloured lights really bring the place alive - see photos !
One thing worth mentioning is that the hotel is in a car free area, so from the port you can get a taxi up to the main square in Capri, but from there you have to walk to the hotel. In this area most businesses use tiny little electric golf cart vehicles to move stuff around. They will take your luggage from the main square and deliver it free of charge to the hotel, however they don't have a vehicle with seats on the back, so for people who find it difficult to walk etc, this might cause a problem, but i'm sure if you asked they could arrange something. It's about a 1km walk through the town and through Via Tragara, which just sets the scene for what is about to come.
Takes around 10 minutes to walk it, but it's beautiful and there are lots of seating area's along the way if you're mega unfit !
On departure, the hotel arranged for our boat tickets to be purchased and our luggage delivered down to the correct dock which saved us a job.
All in all, if you really want to roll the boat out and stay in the best hotel in Capri then this is it. It's not cheap, but experiences like this aren't about the money.
The best most romantic trip we've ever had !
