I had not been to Capri in almost 20 years and couldn’t remember too much about it except that I stayed in Anna Capri. I was surprised by how many high end shops there are in Capri and how much of a destination of the rich and famous it has become. Our travel agent had set-up taxi and ferry transfers from the train station in Naples to our hotel. This included luggage transfers, which was very helpful because our hotel was a bit of a walk from where cars cannot go any more. However, it is less than a perfect system and it took our bags about an hour or so (my wife says two hours) to arrive at the hotel after we did. When we left our bags were picked up two hours before our ferry was to leave for Sorrento. When we arrived at the dock, our bags were nowhere to be seen and our travel service agent that met us at the hotel and took us to the ferry could not find out where they were until the gang plank was going up. She was then told that they had gone on an earlier ferry. When we arrived in Sorrento, out bags were on the dock with three men standing around them with their arms raised. When we told them the bags were ours, they said good, because they didn’t know what to do with them and were going to send them back to Capri.
Anyway. The hotel was very nice and in a great location, which is not that far a walk from the center of town, but far enough to be in a very quiet and beautiful spot with breathtaking views. The staff was very friendly as well and we had a private balcony with views of the garden and the sea, though through the trees. The pool area is very nice and perfect for breakfast and relaxing. The hotel restaurant is supposed to be very good, but we could not get reservations when we arrived and opted to eat in town. I would recommend making reservations to any restaurant ahead of time during the peak season if you can because it can be hard to get them when you arrive.
