“Absolutely stunning!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2012

My husband and I here came for our one year anniversary and will definitely be coming again! Wonderful staff, amenities, and service. Our room was the nicest out of all of the hotels we stayed at in Italy and had a wonderful view. Definitely the highlight of our trip to Italy!

The hotel is truly a gem!
It combines warm and family feelling with high-quality service standarts.
Many thanks to Esposito family for creating such wonderful hotel and Antonino and Luigi for continuing family business and creating such comfortable and friendly atmosphere.
Also we'd like to say thank you to Marco and Camal for their professionalism, attentive and friendly attitude.
Coming back to more practical points - rooms are very tastefully designed, with local influence, everything is of high quality. Spacious wardrobe, bathroom, very comfortable bed and sofa, and a wonderful terrace! I'd spend forever on this terrace.
They serve lunch near the pool, offering couple of salads and several "primi" - all was super-tasty!
Also we had a wonderful apperittivo every night before the dinner in a cosy lobby that is more a living room actually)
The breakfast was also very nice: freshly-squeezed juice, home-made pastries, choice of cold meats/cheese, fresh fruits, desserts like tiramisu and pannacotta, and eggs.
The location is convinient to the centre of Capri and to panoramic routes.

Also the owners may organise for you a boat trip around the island - totally recomended! It's the wonderful opportunity to understand the local way to relax - diving into cobalt sea and tanning on the boat in some small bay.

Ancora una volta grazie mille a Luigi e Antonino e tutto lo staff e speriamo di ritornarci presto!

We stayed at the La Minerva for two nights but wish we would have stayed longer. They had a lady meet us at the boat dock and she arranged to have our luggage transfered to the hotel showed us how to get to the hotel and even bought our tram tickets. On the last day she again took care of our luggage and bought our ferri tickets to Naples. We had a great room with large porch overlooking the water. It was very new and clean with a great pool area. The breakfast included eggs to order and the service was great.

Room Tip: Request the first floor with a sun porch.

This was the highlight of our tour of Italy. The hotel and service were superb and the breakfast buffet from the terrace was wonderful. Everyone there seemed to want to make our stay as memorable as possible.

We loved this hotel! The hotel is charming, lovely, and stylish. The bed linens are spectacular and the bed extremely comfortable, even by American standards. We were just below the reception level, and our balcony and view were wonderful. La Minerva's location was also perfect -- just a short stroll from the piazza but far enough from the crowds of tourists to feel like an oasis.

Most noteworthy was the customer service. The owners and staff were wonderful and clearly were willing to do whatever was necessary to make their guests' stay perfect. For example, when I made my reservation I mentioned that my husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. Soon after our arrival, Marco arrived at our room with prosecco on ice and champagne glasses! The food, service, and views at the breakfast buffet on the roof were amazing.

I had high expectations of La Minerva based upon previous Trip Advisor reviews, but even these high expectations were exceeded. I can enthusiastically recommend La Minerva.

Room Tip: The highest rooms have the best sea views.

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.

We went for just one night in mid-September, leaving our hotel in Positano, to do it. La Minerva is in high demand, so book very early. We had a room on their lower floor, which still had a view of the sea from our private patio. The room was great, the staff was helpful, and the breakfast was super with a lovely view. The best part, though, was the location on the south side, where it's quiet.
