La Minerva
Ranked #1 of 40 Hotels in Capri
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 June 2014

We spent four days at La Minerva. If there was such a thing a six star hotel the 3 brothers running the family owned La Minerva would definitely earn the 6 stars easily. From the moment we arrived at the harbor until we sailed of again everything was well organized. The level of service, the kindness, the hotel itself and hospitality are simply outstanding. Whatever your whishes are the staff will deal with it in a sufficient way making you feel at home all the time.
The hotel is perfect located just a few minutes walking from the main square but in a nice en quiet area overlooking the sea and the beautiful island. The rooms are fantastic and stylish decorated. Having been to Capri a few times and stayed in several hotels on the island it is fair to say there can only be one winner and for us that is La Minerva.
We will definitely go back to La Minerva and the beautiful Island of Capri.

My husband and I spend a few nights at La Minerva on our honeymoon 3 years ago and had such an amazing experience that we went back for our 3rd anniversary at the end of last month! As usual, the service was impeccable! When we arrived, Marco brought us a bottle of Prosecco for our anniversary. Such a nice gesture! Breakfast with Kamal was so lovely. He's always willing to go the extra mile to make sure you're comfortable. When we got back to the hotel in the afternoon one day after a long morning of site-seeing, we just wanted to have a light lunch/snack and lay by the pool, but it was a bit late and the kitchen was closed/chef had gone home. Kamal went out of his way to fix us up a beautiful caprese salad. This is the kind of service that you just don't get at most hotels! The rooms are stunning, always cleaned perfectly. You get back to your room after dinner to find a flower with a pamphlet of useful info for the next day (weather forecasts, things to do around the island, etc.), lights dimmed and soft music playing. I could go on forever. This place is perfect. We love Capri, but La Minerva is what really makes your trip memorable. We will be back, and we will NEVER stay in another hotel on the island!

I have stayed at La Minerva 5 times since first coming in 2005. It gets better each time! It is a beautiful hotel with 18 rooms, and you get endless personal attention from the staff-owned by brothers Luigi and Antonino, with Mariano, brother Marco and Kamal at breakfast and (a different) Marco at the bar. The rooms are lovely and our terrace had a fantastic view of the water. The breakfast room overlooks the pool and has a lovely view of Capri. At breakfast, there is a wonderful selection and one can have eggs, pancakes etc. from the kitchen but the specialty is homemade Torte Caprese...flourless chocolate cake. I cannot wait to come back to La Minerva Capri!!

My husband and I stayed here during our honeymoon and thought the hotel was beautiful! It's very tastefully decorated and allows the view to take center stage. Our room was a Deluxe Room, #41, which is a corner room with more privacy and a huge terrace. It was incredibly relaxing to spend time out there reading and enjoying the views. There was a walk-in closet, great for tucking away our suitcases, and a jacuzzi tub with a large window overlooking the terrace. However, a few times we had trouble getting hot water--it was only lukewarm. Maybe it depends on the time of day and how many people are using the hot water heater?

Otherwise our stay was great. The hotel is situated a short walk away from the main shopping area in a quiet, calm area. We had great views, easy access to the pool and free breakfast daily on the hotel's rooftop terrace. The breakfast spread was fantastic, with lots of options for a hot meal like eggs, crepes and pancakes. The brothers who run the hotel were very helpful and nothing was ever too much trouble. They made restaurant reservations for us and pointed out some of their favorite spots on the island. They also surprised us with light treats and a bottle of prosecco to celebrate our honeymoon. Every evening, we came back to a room lit with candles and a fresh flower, with music playing on the TV.

We enjoyed our stay and can see why it ranks so high on Trip Advisor. If you're considering staying here, book your room early and make sure you splurge on one with a view!

Room Tip: Room 41 (Deluxe Room) is a corner room with more privacy and beautiful views

We ( Married 20 years this year ) had extremely high expectations coming to La Minerva ,not only from all the excellent reviews but from some other folks that had enjoyed their holidays here. The moment we were met by Giovanni at the Marina Grande ( he also guided us on departure with luggage etc .thanks Giovanni. ) and then shown to our room ,which was a superior room 31, just perfect ! we stepped out onto the terrace and just took a deep breath of the absolute beauty of every detail , the view, the stunning room and terrace, the attention to detail of all the brothers to getting to that moment standing on the terrace ,we then knew were going to have a special week in Capri at La Minerva and we did .Lovely breakfasts served on roof terrace with amazing views, simple but stunning lunches by the quiet pool ,lovely cocktails, recommendations for dinner and places to visit .All areas of the hotel are immaculate and décor is stunning. on and on I could repeat what everyone else has commented on . .Could possibly be the best week of my life !! Sounds very silly to say that but what else can be added to all the other amazing reviews of this place .All the folks that have been here before and rave about this hotel . You are so correct ...and I am struggling to find any new ways of describing our experience ! The brothers and staff with Marco and Kamal (others I cant remember their names ,sorry) along with the amazing house keeping team take level of service to clients to a completely different level ,not in a over cosseting sort of way ,again just the appropriate sort of attention to detail to make things just right .We loved exploring around the Island, lots of great walks and plenty to see. So if you want to come to a special place with a special person and have the most special holiday then it has to be La Minerva .. Thanks you so much all the team for making our visit to you so perfect .

Room Tip: Our superior room (31) was perfect .I don't think there is a bad room in the hotel

My husband and I stayed at La Minerva for four nights in May. I booked it as the reviews were so good on trip advisor. They did not disappoint. The hotel is lovely very central for Capri town yet not noisy. Views were beautiful. Breakfast overlooking sea was lovely with fresh juice, baked pastries and cold meat/ cheeses. Our room was cleaned twice a day but we were never disturbed when we were in the room . They have got the level of service just right, there for you when you need something but not over the top. One day we got caught in a thunderstorm and arrived back at hotel drenched, hot drinks were sent to our room to warm us up, such nice little touches that made our stay perfect. The only problem was the weather, we shall return when the weather is better.
