My wife and I (and our 4 year old) visited La Minerva for four days in October to celebrate our 10th Anniversary. From the moment we contacted La Minerva to make a reservation, it was clear that it is a very special place. The email exchanges were not just responsive, they were exceedingly helpful. Arriving on Capri, and throughout our perfect 4 night stay, the help, caring and attention to detail continued. While I can't say that La Minerva is specifically a family hotel, everyone welcomed my daughter as if she was queen "of the castle"(a role that she is well suited for). Antonino, Luigi and Marco (as well as the kind man who took care of us at breakfast) looked after us and provided us with everything and anything that we needed. We were constantly seeking their advice on restaurants and sites to visit as well as travel arrangements. With their assistance every aspect of our stay on Capri was flawless. The comfortable rooms were a marvel of taste and simplicity with private balconies that offered a wonderfully decadent double Chaise lounge/bed overlooking the sea. Our daughter slept on a very comfortable fold out couch. And the room was equipped with fantastic remotely operated black out shutters. From the private boat tour around the island, which ended with lunch at a nearby "beach" , to a visit to AnnaCapri and Villa Jovis it was a wonderful anniversary celebration. We are already plotting a return visit.
