I stayed at both the Caruso and Palazzo Sasso. Both are amazing (see my review of Caruso), but there were two particularly special things about Palazzo Sasso.
First, if you are willing to splurge on the Deluxe Suite Sea View, do it. I'm not sure if there are multiple rooms of this class, but we had the room on the top floor, with a giant balcony having what is probably the most beautiful view I've ever seen in my life. It's so high up that you feel like you're floating in the clouds over the mountains with the sea below, and the best part is, you get to experience this view by yourself (or with a loved one, as I did!) There are no other terraces on the floor so you have 100% privacy. It is about what I imagine heaven to be like. The room itself was nice enough, but the terrace was really what is special about this suite (and what you're paying for).
Second, Sasso by the Sea is awesome. It's a beautiful multi-level club, but the best place in my opinion are the beds at the lower level, right on the water.... my husband literally jumped right from his sun bed into the ocean. Sasso was also the only beach club we visited in our trip that was free... a nice change from places in Capri (though I highly recommend da Luigi if you're looking for a club in Capri). The food is also amazing, and the staff are incredibly nice and attentive.
There were other nice things about Sasso (the live music at cocktail hour at night, the two Michellin star restaurant, the great staff and concierge), but our room and the beach club were definitely the highlights.
