“A Place to Come Back To!”
Reviewed April 10, 2012

My wife and I just spent five nights in the Relais Maresca at Marina Grande in the harbour area which is a cable car ride (5 minutes) away from Capri town centre. The hotel had just opened for the 2012 season, so few guests yet. Very quiet! - We had booked room 41 and the vast terrace (50+sqm) was a pleasant surprise. Luckily the weather was warm and nice, so we could make full use of this outdoor "room". The room itself is rather cramped, nowhere real to sit and read - or write a post-card, for instance. - Breakfast was acceptable, but don't drink the buffet coffee, ask for a cappuccino or espresso! Not, unfortunately, much variety bread-wise. Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. - Room and bath were clean except for one or two oversights: Kleenex holder and hair-dryer were dusty.- All in all: a very nice experience!

Stayed here on our honeymoon. Absolutely loved the island and the hotel was reasonable value considering the prices other hotels charge. Room was fine. Nothing spectacular and pretty old fashioned but nothing to complain about. The main attractions are a short tram ride away which is a bit of a pain but not a big deal. 3 out of 5 overall.

Our first time in Capri, we enjoyed our stay at Relais Maresca. Staff were welcoming and very helpful during our two day stay. The hotel is clean, well kept, and well appointed. We had an ocean view, small balcony terrace, and large cheerful room with a small sitting area. Bathroom was large and spotless. Breakfast was well stocked buffet and they were flexible to special requests like making you espresso or cappucino. It is a handy hotel on arrival because it is right there after you get off the boat. You walk up a short hill or a stair case , your choice, and you are there. Right below the hotel you can buy tickets and catch a bus or the funicular. So it is very handy. At 200 euro it wasn't cheap, but not crazy expensive.

The drawbacks to the hotel all have to do with Capri and not the hotel. The harbor area is noisy and we abandoned the balcony because of the diesel fumes from the vehicles on the street directly below. It does quiet down after the last boats leave and we slept well. The hotel has a great rooftop terrace with lounges and tables so if I stayed there again I would not get an ocean view and just enjoy the rooftop terrace. If I stayed in Capri again I would probably chose a less expensive B&B or a hotel out of the busy areas. Probably in Anacapri. It is so easy to get around Capri by bus and walking that the convenience of this hotel's location is not as great as it might seem. But all in all, it is not a bad choice for the first time visitor. We had a great time in Capri.

When we arrived on Capri after many hours of travelling (first by air, then by ferry), it was a relief that the hotel was very convienently located directly across the street from the ferry terminal. The check-in process was relatively quick, and we were shown directly to our room. The room itself was a bit small, but was very clean. The floor and wall tiles that decorated the room were lovely. The air conditioning wasn't the strongest, so it got to be a bit stuffy in the room at times. The breakfast that was included with the room was typical of European hotels- meats, cheeses, bread, small pastries, cereal, juice, and coffee and the patio where it was served was very nice, overlooking the sea. The hotel is also quite close to the funicular, which leads directly to the piazzetta, Capri's central spot.

Just returned from a 2 night stay in this hotel, while I was a bit dissapointed with Capri in general the hotel was a total let down, We paid the extra an opted for 'room 41' and it is really the view you are paying for. The hotel is 4* but not up to that standard by any means, The room was smaller than average, the furniture was dated, bed linned was stained, there was big damp marks under the air con and the floor was filthy! The room was pretty shabby in general, We found the staff to be rude and not very interested in the guests.The nicest staff member was the gentleman who covered the desk in the evening. Would not stay here again. Definitely not worth what we paid.

We recently stayed at the Relais Maresca for two nights at the end of August. The hotel is 50 meters from the Marina Grande. No need for a porter or taxi or anything as long as you can carry your luggage up a set of stairs. The Marina Grande is busy, but the noise was not really noticeable in our room. It is nice to be conveniently located next to the marina, and there are plenty of tourist shops, restaurants, and gelato stands within a 100 meters. However, this probably would not be considered the “nice” side of the island. The Marina Piccola seems to have nicer hotels, shops, and such, and the scenery (Faraglioni Rocks) is nicer.

The hotel room was small-ish and certainly not posh. In the US, it would be decent Motel 6/Hampton Inn type furniture, but the bed was comfortable and the room was clean. Fortunately, we were given the room at the top of the hotel, with its own private patio. The patio was huge (maybe 25 feet x 40 feet), with two loungers, two chairs, a small couch, and a couple of tables. The patio also had a covered area with a desk, work-out bike, and an outdoor shower. While the room was uninspired, the patio was spectacular. We likely would have been disappointed in the room if we had not had the great patio. The patio was above the terrace where breakfast is served, and had a great view of the marina, the island, and across the bay.

Had no troubles with check-in or check-out. We did not have any special requests for the staff and thus did not have anything out of the ordinary happen. The air conditioning in the room was fine. We were never able to get the room “cold”, but it was certainly comfortable all the time. The breakfast was plain (e.g., cereal, croissants, breads, yogurt, etc.). We would not have paid for it, but it was included in the room rate, so it was an acceptable and filling enough to start the day.

The cable car (funicular) is near, and that is a much, much better way to the center of Capri rather than walking. We did walk up one time, and it was brutal in the hot August weather. Everyone walking up was sweating and struggling. Take the cable car. It is cheap, faster, and less sweat inducing.

We took a private boat tour of the island (120-200 euros depending on the length). This was a steep price, but we generally like the solo tours more than the group tours. We were able to see what we wanted to see, swim when we wanted to swim (e.g, through the green grotto), and did not have 20 other people on the boat.

There are no real sandy beaches on the island. The tiny beach by the Marina Grande and the hotel did not seem too great. We did spend a few hours at Da Luigi’s overlooking the Faraglioni Rocks. The chairs, towels, and umbrella were something like 50 euros for the day).

Definitely take a cab or bus over to Anacapri. It is quieter, has fewer high-end shops, and is just more quaint than Capri. We went over in the evening, walked around through the neighborhoods, and had a nice meal outside.

Room Tip: As for the room at the top of the hotel with the large private patio

I arrived early evening hours with no room still booked. The Maresca is right in front of the port of Capri. I looked up and saw a very attractive hotel. The receptionist was absolutely amazing. Very accommodating and at your service. My stay was minimal but i was treated like a prince. My room was on the top floor and had an incredible view of the port and harbour. Breakfast on the rooftop is majestic as you see the port of Capri and its lower surroundings. Breakfast was amazing. Fresh fruit, excellent coffee and lots of variety on the menu. I went in the off season and i can assure you i was very lucky to have this hotel room available. Capri is a must see however I should add that the Relais Maresca was really conveniently located. When there is lots of traffic in the higher parts of the island this location is really attractive. Room was beautiful and very clean with ceramic tiles that gives it a real charm.
