We spent one night at this lovely hotel and enjoyed ourselves immensely. For us, the distance from town was a plus; it was incredibly peaceful and quiet and one of the joys of the island is the lack of any vehicular traffic once you get away from the road. A large part of the core island is pedestrianized and Brunella is toward the end of a main street that is breathtaking. The pool is delightful and the sun deck beautiful.
As others have noted, it's small and family run, adding to the sense of peace. It was not full when we were there (early in the season and during the week), and the owners upgraded our friends to a junior suite above the pool. Both rooms were incredibly spacious and very comfortable with huge private decks that overlooked the unobstructed view of the sea. We also wound up eating at the restaurant since it rained heavily (briefly) right as we were heading into town, but as described, it's a lovely place, very romantic with good food.
The only quibble, as others also noted, is the breakfast. It was quite bare bones, and it seemed surprisingly that the hotel would "nickle-and-dime" people at the price point for the hotel. Still, a small quibble in the grand scheme of things, and it may well be a standard on Capri, although it wasn't our experience anywhere else on the Amalfi Coast.
We loved the island and hiked everywhere. Just be prepared for lots of climbing! A great walk is to go down to the small marina outside the main part of town, where there is a lovely beach club and restaurant, connected to the hotel.
