“Good as it Gets”
Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

La Menerva is a great little hotel with an incredible staff who understand how to run a hotel for the benifit if their guest. My girlfriend and I spent 4 nights of our two week vacation and couldn't have been happier with our choice.

The two men who run the hotel are the third generation to do so and the quality of care and attention to detail shows in everything they do. There is a reason La Menerva has such great reviews do yourself a favor and book this wonderful experience.

Our stay at La Minerva was truly an amazing experience! They catered to our every need and were ready to answer any question we had. They pointed us in all of the right directions for food and activities on the island.

Our room was a great size and perfect layout. The patio looking out onto the ocean was beautiful. The pool was very nice. The breakfast was very good and the service was perfect.

They provide you with access to a great gym a few blocks away. It was the nicest workout facility we came across on our trip and they walked us there, provided us water and towels.

I can't say enough amazing things about this property and the people who work there! We will be back.

My only "complaint" would be the cost of the arranged transfer from the port to the hotel. We paid 130 Euros for our luggage to be brought to the hotel and to be walked through the town. The service was fine, just a tad overpriced for the transfer. Everything else about the hotel's pricing was very reasonable given the amazing property and service.

Truly an amazing hotel. The rooms were well sized, clean and very nice and comfortable. The pool was amazing, it felt like being in a beautiful and large backyard with incredible views.

I cannot say enough good things about the staff. From the concierge to the manager to the waiters, everyone was beyond friendly and helpful.

On an island where most things are over done and everything seems overpriced this was an amazing hotel. Everything the hotel offers and serves is very high quality and good prices which is a great touch. We will definitely be back.

The stunning views and lovely facilities were only exceeded by the exceptional customer service. Every employee we encountered was very attentive and eager to help in any way. My wife and I have been traveling together for over twenty years and La Minerva is now regarded as the very best hotel we have ever experienced. If you plan to visit the beautiful island of Capri, this hotel should absolutely be a part of your plans. The hotel was also absolutely "spot on" with their dinner recommendations and the four hour private boat tour they arranged around the island was exceptional.

My husband and I decided to spend 4 nights at La Minerva in Capri for the start of our honeymoon. It was the best decision we made, and we regret actually not just spending the entire length of our honeymoon at this hotel! The customer service is beyond compare - it is the perfect blend of getting exactly what you need when you need it, while still maintaining your privacy. The scenery is just stunning. It literally feels like you are waking up inside a painting. We are hoping to return to La Minerva and Capri soon!!

This boutique hotel has everything the modern, stylish traveller to Capri desires. From the moment you walk through its doors you are transported to a tranquil, elegant space complete with stunning vistas.
The white decor with blue accents compliments the backdrop of blue skies and the ocean. I particularly loved the black and white prints based on Malaparte, orchids and hydrangeas placed through out the hotel.
Breakfast is served on the outdoor terrace overlooking the ocean - what better way to start your day?
The hotels location is perfect - a short walk to restaurants, shops or just sit in the square and watch the world go by. Antonio and Luigi made great dinner reservations for us. We also sailed around the island, explored the caves and enjoyed a leisurely lunch at the famous Fontalina.
If you want to relax and laze by the pool overlooking the blue ocean and mored yachts this is the place. Lunch and a cool glass of wine are served poolside under a vine covered pergola. Thank you to Marco and Kamal for looking after us so well.

This beautiful hotel gives you a true sense of Capri, stylish and elegant. Thank you for a wonderful vacation I hope to return!
