La Minerva
Ranked #1 of 40 Hotels in Capri
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 August 2012

We traveled extensively throught the world staying in all kinds of hotels. We have tried 4 hotels on island and La Minerva is by far the best. We have returned yearly and the experience keeps getting better. What sets La Minerva apart from the rest is the (1) welcoming and service oriented environment by its owners who work the day to day, (2) wonderfully inviting rooms and hotel amenities (pool, etc) and hotel location.

While some of the other hotels might enjoy a more popular brand name, they lack the personal touch and commitment to service La Minerva has to offer. I recommend this hotel as close to a sure thing as they come.

Room Tip: The 3rd and 4th floor rooms have larger balcony space

This hotel is truly the best I have stayed in so far, I have travelled extensively including 6 and 7 star hotels in the middle east. From front of house where you are greeted by Luigi or Antonio to Kamal who serves breakfast on the upper terrace and lunch at the pool bar and Marco who serves a mean gin fizz in the evening and a very much appreciated cooling refreshment around the pool around 5pm, you are made to feel very special and literally nothing is too much trouble. We were in room 43 which had a wonderful terrace with very comfortable loungers and lovely view. The room was so well appointed with everything you will ever need. The turndown service with a different flower on your bed each night is such a lovely touch. Thank you so much for making our 30th wedding anniversary so special we will make every effort to return!!

Everything about La Minerva was awesome, the room, the food, the pool, but what makes it so special is definitely the service! All of the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, I can't recommend this place more.

We are just back from a 12 night holiday including stays in Naples, Ischia, Capri, Sorrento and Positano, all in 4 star hotels, and this is by far not only the best hotel of the holiday but the best stay in my life. I have worked in travel but have never received such personal attentive but not in your face service anywhere else in the world. This hotel i dont think can be beaten and i highly recommend you stay here.
i did think it was expensive but then everything in Capri is but now having stayed here I think its worth every single penny! all the staff from reception, to the maids to the breakfast and pool staff are all friendly welcoming and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble.
the rooms are amazing!! terrace amazing! reception amazing! breakfast amazing! service amazing! location amazing!
I have just looked through the photos on here and it made me smile but also sad that its all over but we will defintely be back here.
so much attention to detail, the lighting of the candles in reception at night, the turn down service including more clean towels, news about Capri and flowers on the bed.
We asked reception to reserve a restauraunt for us and although that one was fully booked they got us in another night at a great table with a great view and booked us in somewhere else instead for that night.
About 5pm everyday they brought complimentary refeshments round the pool, something different each day. They also gave everyone spray bottles with water and rose scent to spray yourself if you got too hot lying by the pool.
You can have breakfast on the balcony if you chose and there was no charges for room service which we chose to do on our last morning and it was a lovely end to our stay.
We had a walk in wardrobe in our room and i also requested the rooms with the double terrace beds and was very happy to have been given this rooms as it was peak season and i knew it wouldnt be guaranteed.
look no further you wont be disappointed!! this should be a five star hotel.

Room Tip: room 52 was fantastic with double terrace sunbeds on the terrace and walk in wardrobe.

So for Capri the last stop on our honeymoon we thought let's try this small boutique hotel that everyone seems to be gushing about at least on TA. Great decision. Tucked away in a quiet lane just 5 min from the bustling main square of Capri lies this gem. Our room, Superior, had a beautiful view of the the sea and a lovely large deck with very relaxing loungers. The room is pristine white and spacious with absolutely nothing left wanting. The pool is smallish but good enough for a quiet relaxing afternoon dip. The first night after a day of walking around we were hungry and too tired to go out for dinner. We called and they said the chef leaves at 3pm but they could make us some simple pasta. What arrived was a fantastic plate of yummy home made pasta. Heaven! Later that night they sent us a bottle of champagne to celebrate our honeymoon. All this brought to our room by Marco who was so great I can say that enough! Oh yea he was the one who cooked the pasta too. It was like living at a friend's home. Antonino was so nice always suggesting places to go to and restaurants to eat at. Kamal we met at breakfast and the pool with his smiling face. There are a lot of great hotels with great rooms and stunning views in Capri but La Minerva wins hands down for its superlative service. Its definitely top class. Me and my husband loved Capri and we plan on visiting again. La Minerva will definitely be our first choice for acco.

Room Tip: The Superior Room was good enough if you don't want to shell out too much. It has the same view...
