Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 12, 2014

My husband and I stayed in this lovely hotel in Jul31-Aug1. The family run hotel la Minerva is excellent in all aspects, from the time of arrival, we were greeted by their staff Giovanni, and the brothers Luigi, Antonio and Marco took care of us in everything, from Capri to-dos, nice local restaurants suggestions, boat trip arrangement, and departure, etc. All of these were handled professionally, the only miss is that we are not able to stay there for longer days! Next time we surely will be back and book this hotel earlier! And the room was nice with gorgeous view and very comfortable bed! Love it!

Best hotel I've ever stayed in! We went to Capri as part of our honeymoon and we couldn't have been more pleased with La Minerva. Everything about it was amazing.. Great staff, location, private, gorgeous, just perfect! I've never stayed at a hotel that's actually more beautiful than what they show on their website and La Minerva was just that! Will definitely be back!

My husband and I spent 5 nights in this wonderful boutique hotel from 7/27. Luigi, Antonino and Marco took care of everything, with professionalism and warmth...even before we arrived. They were an exceptional help as they called to inform us that the ferries from Amalfi to Capri had been canceled due to weather and advised us of a private ferry from Positano. Arriving at the Marina Grande, we were met by La Minerva's representative who arranged for easy bags transfer to the hotel and for our transportation via furnicular. We had wonderful recommendations and reservations for restaurants along with suggestions on how to spend our time. The rooms are bright, comfortable, and spotless and we had a lovely view (room 23). Breakfast was sublime with a great selection from the buffet and a la carte. My husband particularly enjoyed eggs benedict and crepes. (thank you Kamal and all). The entire property has an elegant yet intimate feel and we enjoyed a lovely limoncello nightcap on the balcony one night (Thank you Daniel) and a delicious bottle of Campania wine by the pool. We liked being in short walking distance to the hustle and bustle, shops, restaurants the piazza while being tucked away to enjoy the peacefulness and view. I most certainly would return and recommend this property. We wanted for nothing. Thank you Esposito brothers and staff for making our stay in Capri a wonderful memory we will cherish. Grazie!

Room Tip: All rooms look out on the water. We loved room 23.

I struggle writing another review for this small, intimate, & fabulous spot. The more good press the harder it is to get a room.

Run by brothers Luigi, Antonino & Marco, management is committed to personal service and family atmosphere. While the hotel enjoys excellent rooms overlooking the beautiful Capri blue water, what sets it apart is the home feel and personal touch.

The hotel has a pool which is fantastic with Kamal ready to serve you lunch or a drink on demand. Breakfast overlooking the ocean is a real treat: home made bread, cold cuts, cakes, fruits and eggs await.

If you are looking for all flash and over priced rates stay at Quisisana. If, however, you want great rooms, great peaceful location 2 minutes away from center of town, and best service stay at La Minerva.

What can you say when you are at loss for word of how great of an experience this hotel truly is except for - absolutely divine! This hotel with a 60 year history and owned by three generations truly gives you the warmest of welcomes from the moment you check in to the moment you leave. Our room a deluxe room with a balcony with the beautiful blue and white tiles was amazing, we spent our mornings and evenings looking over the ocean from the balcony in total harmony, and our days by the fantastic pool area drinking rose and enjoying the lunch. We felt so taken care of during our entire stay, whatever you want to do the two brothers will help you plan it in details from where the best vista points are to where to get the best dinners. I guess our only complaint is that once you check in you never want to leave :)

Thank you for a fantastic stay we will recommend La Minerva to everyone we know!!!

Room Tip: If you are booking a deluxe room make sure to decide if you want a balcony room with better views or...

The whole experience from arriving in the harbor at Capri to departing the hotel was first class. The three brothers who run the hotel and their staff looked after us superbly from buying us tickets at the funicular when we arrived tired after a day of travel to recommendations for dinner each night. We genuinely felt like we were entering their home as welcomed guests and nothing was a problem. This small boutique hotel is a brilliant place to stay being in a great location and everything about it luxurious. The main feature however is the service provided by the three brothers Luigi, Antonino and Marco who were always full of fun and enthusiastic in ensuring we enjoyed ourselves.

Room Tip: Our room was excellent. I suspect the quality of the other 15 was as good.

It is so difficult to write a review which says something different from the universally brilliant comments about this hotel. All the points made by previous reviews are absolutely right. This is an exceptional hotel. But of all the plusses of staying here the one word that sums up the essence of La Minerva is "service". The 3 bothers are so kind and for them nothing is a problem and there is an answer to everything. Choice of restaurants to eat, overcoming the absence of taxis, arrangements for getting to and from the island, advice on what Capri has to offer and so much more - all done with a "can do " attitude where nothing is too much trouble. Its a brilliant hotel experience and we cannot recommend La Minerva and the wonderful Espositos more highly. Go and enjoy - you wont be disappointed.

Room Tip: A balcony or terrace is a must
