What can I say about Capri except what everyone already knows, it's gorgeous, but expensive. However, one of the best values on the island is Hotel La Minerva. Family owned and flawlessly run, this was one of our favorite hotels of the enitre 22 day trip. The owners and staff here just do back-flips to make your stay absolutely perfect. We were treated like royalty, but at a reasonable rate.
Luigi and Antonio saw to every tiny detail of our stay, they were just wonderful. The hotel is beautiful, quiet and exceptionally clean. The linens are sumptuous and you get a fresh flower every evening at turn-down. The balcony is the perfect spot to enjoy a glass (or two) of Proseco upon arrival.
Our rooms were excellent, with all the bells and whistles. The service here is amazing, you feel the staff is on call just for you 24/7. Breakfast is great, Kamel, our favorite server from Sri Lanka, will make your eggs however you like them, and the coffee...oh my....the coffee is simply the best in the world, strong and piping hot! All this is served on the patio overlooking the bright blue sea. Kamel also mans the bar at the pool in the afternoon, where he will bring you fresh fruit, ice cold Limoncello and clean fluffy towels. He is just a sweetheart, we received the best of care from this gentelman.
Luigi and Antonio know the island very well, and they sent us to many captivating places and several excellent restaurants. They also arranged our fabulous day aboard the Papino with Rafael from Capri Boats and for our luggage to get carted about the island with perfect timing. We were so sorry to leave La Minerva, we got hugs from everyone. We are sure to be back if we ever have the opportunity to visit Capri again. Sincere thanks to Luigi, Antonio and Kamel, we will be back one day!
Thanks guys, we miss you all!
