La Minerva
Ranked #1 of 40 Hotels in Capri
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 8, 2014

My fiancé and I stayed at this beautiful hotel just after we got engaged. It was the most amazing experience and the staff were so incredibly helpful. The breakfasts were a highlight - situated on the balcony overlooking the ocean. We only stayed one night, which was such a shame, but we will definitely be back!

For years, my husband and I always said we wanted to visit Capri. We finally had our chance and could not be more impressed with the beautiful Island and people. Tonight is our last night here at La Minerva and we are sad to go. From the moment you arrive this Hotel is top notch and pampers you so much you won't want to ever leave. I can't say enough for the hospitality of the brothers (family owned) and the service provided by all the staff. It is romantic, fun, quiet, beautiful and clean. We want to come back every year to enjoy this hotel and what it offers. Book your stay here, there is a very good reason it's ranked #1.

Don't forget to say hello to the most famous dog on the Island "Buzz".... He will follow you everywhere, especially the beautiful ladies :-)

stayed here with my family last week. the hotel is run by a family. (4 brothers if i am not mistaken), from our welcome drinks, to the rooms, to the AMAZING BREAKFAST and amazing server Kamal, to our departure, i can definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Capri.

we had a room overlooking the ocean which was cleaned everyday. sheets were crisp and new, bathroom was spotlessly clean, everything just felt new. hopefully management can keep this place as how we saw it.

rooms are pricy but... then again, this is capri. the whole island is supposed to be a large tourist trap.. =p

Top class, excellent service! will definitely recommend to friends and family who plan on visiting capri

thank you so much for having us!

Room Tip: get a room with the view of the sea. you will not regret.

La Minera was our first stop on our Amalfi Coast honeymoon and we loved our stay here! We were in Room 42 with a balcony and a sea view. The Jacuzzi tub was amazing! And we loved the toiletries they provided. The service was excellent. We felt like we were in Luigi, Antonino and Marco's home. They are the brothers that run the hotel. Brunch on the veranda was beautiful and the food was really good. Luigi was very helpful in suggesting places to go and where to eat. I highly recommend this hotel.

We love this hotel. We stayed at La Minerva in early April. This was our second visit in two years. If you've read through the reviews, you know that La Minerva is a wonderful hotel. We find it an oasis of calm and beauty. We like traveling in the off season because Capri is much quieter and less crowded. We take walks all over the island and are often times the only people on the trail or path.

There aren't enough positive adjectives in the English language to accurately describe the wonderful experience of staying at La Minerva. Brothers, Luigi and Antonino, and now their younger brother, Marco, provide such excellent service. They are always ready and willing to help you navigate restaurants, walks, and beautiful places to visit, and are genuinely friendly people. Kamal and Marco (the other Marco) take great care whether serving you a lovely breakfast or lunch by the pool. Kamal's coffee is the best. We actually ate lunch three times at the hotel because the setting is so beautiful and relaxing, and the simple food very delicious!

We stayed in the same superior room that we had the first time we stayed and it was every bit as lovely as we remembered. So much thought and care have gone into all the elements of the hotel.

It's always difficult returning home to our much more mundane lives. We'd love to spend many months at the beautiful La Minerva.

Thanks to all of you for taking such good care of us and all your guests!

When we decided we wanted to go to Capri, the first few hotels I found were in the $700/night range, and I figured we'd have to scrap the trip entirely. Then we found La Minerva, which was not only reasonably priced, at least by Capri standards, but truly one of the top few hotels in which I've ever stayed. All of the amenities you'd expect in a luxury hotel (except, perhaps, room service), with all of the personal attention you'd expect from a top B&B. The owners recommended a wonderful, low-key local restaurant, which was so perfect we returned the second night. I can't say enough about how wonderful this experience was.

My wife and I have traveled throughout the US, Caribbean, and Europe. La Minerva sits on top of the list of the best hotels. The owners, Antonino and Luigi, brothers, are friendly, helpful, and run the hotel like a family welcoming you into their home. The hotel is spotless and immaculately clean. Our Superior room was a good size, had a nice balcony with 2 chairs, and a splendid view. From arrival to departure, they made everything easy. A woman from the hotel met us at the dock to take our luggage to the hotel. She explained how to take the Funicare (5 min train up the mountain) to the main square, gave us a map that directed us to the 10 min walk to the hotel.

The hotel is centrally located in the main area of shops and restaurants and hotels. Upon arrival we sat by the pool and they served us a delicious lunch of pasta, salad, wine, and bread. Simple food, but among the most delicious in all of amalfi coast. All their recommendations for restaurants, walks, and attractions were excellent. Don't miss the chair lift to Anacapri peak. Amazing views. They also directed us to a great lunch in a restaurant in a 40 min walk from the center of Anacapri. It's worth the walk (restaurant also will pick you up and drive you back at no charge). Get the antipasti sampler plate and the organic wine made on premise. So good!

The breakfast was outstanding. Fresh fruit, pastries, meats, and eggs made to order. The location was on the top level with a great view. The pool area was beautiful and had many comfortable lounge chairs - we lingered there for hours. The main lobby area had comfortable chairs and sofa where guests typically sat for a while enjoying coffee or mixed drinks in the beautiful white decorated room. It was a good way to mingle with other guests to exchange recommendations on sites and restaurants.

Capri was our favorite part of the amalfi coast. Stunning scenery, great food, nice shops, wonderful hikes and walks, and at La Minerva as your home base, you will have the time of your life. The hosts at the hotel are incredibly gracious and helpful. I hope to return one day.

Room Tip: Select a room on a high floor with a balcony and for best views
