“Perfect Honeymoon”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

I meant to do this back in August after we got back from Honeymoon but struggled to put in words what an utterly perfect location to go on honeymoon. So here I am a few months later feeling guilty that i haven't added to the ever growing list of those lucky guests that have stayed so far.
Everything about this hotel is geared around your stay - we were met at the harbor, our bags taken by the hotel porter and then as we had arrived early we had lunch on the seafront - that 1st beer tasted so good..

Everyone at the hotel made sure that we were treated like royalty, often recommending places to visit and places to have dinner ensuring that we had a great table.

The island is great fun - lots to do - if you love shopping you will be in heaven, taken a boat around the island, swimming and watching the sunset on our last night was truly magical.

If you have any hesitations about going - don't - you will have a perfect relaxing escape we all need in today hectic life.

Room Tip: room 11 is great - top floor with fab view!!!

This was an amazing place. We stayed for 3 nights and wished we had stayed longer. Everyone who works here is extremely interested in ensuring that guests have a great trip. Every restaurant they booked for us was great (we always had the best tables) and the boat tour was amazing. The breakfasts were also wonderful as was the service Kamal provides (he is a gem). The only suggestion we would make would be to perhaps heat the pool a degree or two. We were there in September and it was very warm out but the pool was very cool (we still went for quick swim to cool off, though). All in all, we loved Capri and La Minerva....we will be back.

Room Tip: Pick a room with a sea view...they are all great. We found the balconies to be private and were one...

We stayed for 4 days having stayed at two 5 star hotels in Capri on the same trip and the welcome and service was unparalleled. Great local recommendations for lunch and dinner and a fantastic pool. The slight downside is the lack of privacy on the terraces depending on your room category

Amazing! Everything in this hotel is beautiful and so romantic. Breakfast was wonderful, great amenities, 5 star service. I recommend this hotel to couples as it definitely caters to that vibe. Definitely ask for recommendations while in Capri- staff is very knowledgable.

We stayed at this gorgeous hotel for three nights during Sept 13 and could not recommend it highly enough. Family owner/managers Antonino and Luigi and all of their wonderful staff make it the perfect place from which to sample the delights of this beautiful island. Views from the rooms are idyllic, breakfast on the roof terrace is breathtaking and even a light lunch by the pool feels sybaritic. We took a boat trip around the island as recommended by Antonino and our captain Luca was charming and a mine of local information. Heads up to newbies though - avoid the Blue Grotto, a very unpleasant way to throw away 25 Euros as it is noisy and claustrophobic inside that small place with all the other tourist boats barging against yours and those steering them yelling to each other. Horrible experience. On the plus side, some heavenly coastal walks, great restaurants and lovely bathing clubs. Capri is a little slice of heaven on earth and we definitely plan to go back. Thanks Antonino!

We stayed at the La Minerva for three nights in September. Antonino, his brother and their family have owned this hotel for three generations. They not only own it, they are there every day...at the front desk. They are wonderful and have a great touch. The hotel is beautiful...all white with the rooms done in various ceramic tiles. The common areas are stunning with beautiful views. We had a Superior Room one floor below the reception level. Wonderful view with a terrace large enough for two to relax comfortably. The Deluxe Rooms are larger, but on lower floors with less view. The service could not possibly be any better or more friendly. Marco, the genius bartender/mixologist/chef (and Elvis Costello look-alike) was great fun...mixed the best drinks around and made us an impromptu late lunch/early dinner after we got back too late for a restaurant meal. One of the best dishes of pasta we had in a month of traveling.

There are larger hotels on Capri. There are hotels where you can stay to be seen. There are no hotels where you will be so coddled in such a beautiful place with such grace and service. The La Minerva is not to be missed.

Room Tip: The Superior Rooms have slightly smaller terraces (more than large enough) than the Deluxe Rooms, bu...

I suppose I am blindly in love with La Minerva . Antonino and Luigi are the best. The are always so welcoming and all of their staff are terrific.
This is a wonderful situated boutique hotel that ranks at the top.
The rooms are lovey and the entire facility is immaculate. I love the rooftop breakfast are and dream of being there again soon.

Room Tip: I love Room #41!
