We stayed 5 nights in a superior double (room 21). I would just echo what everyone has already said about this hotel - exceptional view, beautiful decor, spacious bathrooms, breakfast on the terrace. Luigi is fantastic, and his english is superb (he spent a year in NYC). When he found out where we were eating our first night, he called ahead and had them bring us champagne. All of his recommendations were spot on.
Just a word about the area this hotel is in. The pluses are that it is just off Via Camarelle which is the premier shopping area of the island. It is not on the main drag, which is a plus as during the summer it is full of people and noisy. The minus of this area is that it does occasionally have a pungent, sewer-esque smell. This is not unique to La Minerva, but seems to be more noticible on this part of the island.
