Picky honeymooners hotel in Anacapri and Sorrento

We are thinking of staying in Capri or Anacapri for 4 nights and 9 nights in Sorrento for our honeymoon this August.

We are looking at Capri Palace in Anacapri and La Minervetta in Sorrento.

Since Capri Palace will really be the most expensive hotel we have ever stayed in (and probably will ever stay in) - I am wondering if it's really worth it?

Also - is La Minervetta the best choice in Sorrento taking into account luxury, location and of course views?

Thanks so much for the help!

If you're not totally 'sold' on Capri then suggest you base youselves in Sorrento and maybe Positano and do Capri as a day trip or maybe overnight stay. Certainly beautiful but mainly (in my humble opinion) centres around people watching, expensive designer shops and expensive restaurants. However, we have never stayed on the island after all the tourists have left and apparently this is the way to experience it properly.

Haven't stayed at La Minervetta but it looks from its website to only have a pretty small 'plunge pool' if that is an issue? Can recommend the Hotel Grand Royal - which is our favourite - lovely gardens, beautiful view of Vesuvius and the Bay of Naples, nice pool area and private decked bathing platform built out over the sea. Book B&B and enjoy the restaurants in town.

Call me crazy, but if you want a romantic place, the view from the Caesar Augustus can't be beat. The service is not yet 5 star although they have a 5 star rating, but it is possibly the best view in the world!
