“Great location, Great breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

My boyfriend and I stayed at Relais Maresca for 4 nights in late July and loved it! The location is great (2 minute walk to the ferry port and beach and a 1 minute walk to the funicolare which brings you up to the main shops and restaurants in Capri) and the breakfast buffet was great compared to many other offerings we had seen over our 2 week trip in Italy. I would highly recommend a stop in Capri for anyone considering vacationing in Italy and Hotel Relais Maresca is a great place to rest, relax and enjoy yourself!

For seagull watchers, this is your choice! Big, hungry and aggresive birds can be studied very closely: either when they at intimate range follow every thing you do eating on the terrace overlooking the fascinating Marina Grande or helping you to eat whatever you leave on the table whilst getting another piece of ham or cheese on the buffet nearby.
The birds literary fly in likes Stukas in WW2! Repeated appeals to the staff to do something about it, didn't result in improvements the week we stayed there.

We are extremely sorry that your stay in our hotel has not been according to your expectations.
The problem that you have correctly mentioned is true but unfortunately it is also due to the complacency of the vast part of the guests who are fascinated by their presence being photographed together and giving them even some food.
We are studying some action to solve the problem that we will implement as soon as possible and assure you my personal care until its resolution.
Thanking you again for your valuable comments, we hope to be able to welcome you to our hotel and have a second opportunity to offer a very comfortable stay and prove our care and attention that we maintain for our customers.

Three days, fridge did not work, without frozen lemoncellos, the benefit of a balcony overlooking the ferries can lose its appeal rather quickly. There are other much nicer hotels in this price range. If you plan visit Capri, book early.

We spent three nights at the relays Maresca in Capri. We stayed in Room 41, the top room with a private patio that offers a spectacular view of the harbor and the ocean. We enjoyed the room, its view and the hotel very much. The room was air conditioned, well appointed, clean, and again, the view was out of this world. We were also pleased with the efficient and courteous service we received from all the staff and were impressed with the Manager Mr Dominico D'Agostino and his front desk people. We will be back.

Room Tip: Room 41 is the room to book. Worth the extra.

What a pleasant surprise it was to find that Hotel Relais Maresca was about 100 yards from the ferry from Naples on the waterfront of Marina Grande overlooking the gulf of Naples. Our check-in was efficient, and our room was nothing fancy , but nevertheless was fine. I do suggest, however, that the next time management renovates the rooms, they put in stall showers rather that the partially enclosed tub/showers that they now have (and which are common throughout Italy).

Breakfast is included in the room rate and is served on a large roof deck with a spectacular ocean view and with umbrellas to provide shade. In the evening, this serves as the hotel's restaurant. There are several pleasant public rooms in the lobby and a small bar.

Even though the hotel is not in the heart of Capri Town, there are numerous restaurants, shops and cafes nearby and the beach of Marina Grande is right out front. (Beware, the beach is comprised of small rocks, not sand.) The funicular to the upper part of Capri is close by and the trip takes about 5 minutes. The fare is nominal. There is also a small bus terminal and taxi stand nearby for transportation to the upper town and to Anacapri.

The reception desk was staffed by pleasant, service-oriented people who provided us with a lot of useful information and directions. The room rate was reasonable for a June stay in Capri.

We walked off the boat a week ago and spent a night here and would have loved to stay longer. The staff were helpful and flexible, the room was beautiful on simple elegant lines (white and cream) and the view over the bay of Naples stupendous. For us it was very useful to be near the port and the sea so we could swim and come back to the hotel for a shower etc. We could also get boat times and go on boat trips without making a journey. The breakfast was varied and excellent, and eaten al fresco on the roof, therefore making the most of the view.
Our two small children were with us and the hotel was fine for them.

We would love to return.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms look over the sea, but do make sure of this
