We travelled to Capri and stayed at Hotel Della Picola Marina in August. And I just have to say that this hotel is absolutely lovely.
Let me start with an over view of the hotel. I have to point out that this is not one of those huge hotels with sprawling lobbies, I don't think any of the hotels in Capri are like that as I noticed all of them have this nice homey feel to them. It's a medium size hotel with a very cozy entrance overlooking a cozy and beautiful walking path. Once inside the lobby and the sitting areas are just delightful, they are modern and bright with vibrant colors and they have this lovely island feel to them. Its as if the interior designers went out of their way to make you almost feel like you're in your own holiday home!
The room we took was a junior suite overlooking the pool and with a breath taking sea view. Again the room and the bathroom were delightful and had a nice island feel yet they had a modern twist. They were very clean and the bed and all the amenities were super comfortable.
The service at the hotel was great, the staff went out of their way to be helpful. They made all of our restaurant reservations for us and they were all very friendly from the guys at the reception to the housekeepers to our waiters at the restaurants.
The pool is a little bit small but its a very relaxing cozy place, overlooking the sea and the surrounding areas which are just as beautiful.
As for the food, we only had breakfast at the hotel and they had a nice breakfast with a good variety and the cappuccinos were great! The only thing is the outdoor breakfast area is tucked away so there isn't much of a sea view. Its not bad at all but I would say its just average.
The location of this hotel is perfect. Its in a residential area so its nice and quiet, yet its so close to the main piazza that has all the shops and cafes. There is also a super market close to the hotel as you are entering the piazza. It is also a walking distance to Marina Piccola beach. Only thing is just like many places or hotels in Capri the taxi had to park on the main road and we had to drag our bags to the hotel as there is no car access to it. It was totally fine as it took only 5 minutes so if you're planning to travel to this island you have to pack light!
Over all our experience was great, the hotel is just heavenly and it had a very cozy relaxing feel to it. We had travelled with our children ages 8 and 5 and even they really enjoyed it even though its not one of those hotels with kids clubs etc...However that was not an issue at all the staff really accommodated all our requests for the children and they had a great time just like us! We are definitely coming back to Capri and staying at the Della Marina Piccola for sure!
