The amazing Hotel Excelsior and their wonderful staff. This is how you should be treated when you are on holiday :). This hotel/island wasn't on our original agenda however we had to leave our previous hotel due to poor service etc and we were so glad we did.
The only room available that night was the loft room which has a limited view - rather than leaving this detail as a surprise, we were informed of this up front before we committed to staying, which we think is fantastic service. Regardless of the limited view this is a beautifully decorated and cosy room.
I forgot to mention that we were met at the harbour and driven to the hotel, lovely. When they found out it was our honeymoon, a bottle of bubbly and canapes arrived, which we proceeded to savour whilst relaxing on the terrace in the jacuzzi, looking out to sea at the amazing views. We managed to pull ourselves away from the jacuzzi (mainly due to a thunderstorm, fantastic lightning) to make it to a lovely dinner at Le Panoramique, I think.
The next day breakfast was a feast for the eyes, the nose and the palette. We were given appropriate sightseeing recommendations for the limited time we had in Capri and finally we were picked up and driven to the port for our departure.
This is not an inexpensive island, but worth a weekend stay, and if you stay anywhere stay here, you'll be happy you did.
