Great hotel, peaceful location and good facilities, but the draw for this place is the amazing view out to Capri.

We had got in touch with the hotel prior to our arrival to request a room on the first (top) floor as we had seen on here that they were the best rooms. We were given one, at no additional cost, and were not disappointed - lovely balcony with loungers, chairs and table - and an amazing view!

The pool area was peaceful and relaxing with plenty of sun loungers to choose from. The pool is salt water but we didn't find this an issue.

Breakfast had a good choice - lots of pastry, cakes, cheese/meats, toast, fresh fruit, yoghurts. There were hot options as well - scrambled eggs, mushrooms, tomatoes etc. We cannot comment on the evening meals as we were only B&B.

We had a car and drove down to Sorrento most evenings, many options there for meals. We also went up in the other direction and found the most amazing restaurant, Mira Capri, great fresh fish and real Itailan hospitality (great price too!).

We spent a day on the sundecks at Sorrento - great people watching amongst the locals. Cost of a sun lounger for the day was 12euros.

We also went on the trip tp Capri (organised through the hotel) which was worth it. Small tip is that you need to get straight off the boat and onto a little bus (1.80euro each) when you first arrive at the marina in order to get into Capri town.

I have to especially mention the staff at the hotel who were all fantastic. Unfortunately, we had to deal with a medical issue while staying here, and the staff could not have done any more for both of us. For that we are very grateful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room one 1st floor - they have the largest balconies with your own loungers if you don'...

I really wanted to love this hotel, however having read all the reviews here I think I set my expectations a bit too high. On the plus side, you will be hard pressed to find a hotel with better views, simply stunning! On the whole the staff are very friendly and very helpful, particularly the restaurant staff although I can't say the same about the staff around the pool. The food is good, in fact the pasta is excellent, as good as you will find anywhere but the mains are a bit varied ranging from beautiful sword fish to mediocre and not particularly traditional, roast pork and two veg. The restaurant seems stuck in a bit of a time warp with a distinct feel of the 70s and 80s but very efficient and very friendly. The rooms are similar, clean and bright, but in need of leap into the 21st century. The shuttle bus is good but they need to put on an extra one in the afternoon, yes, I appreciate it's siesta time but the first one back from Sorrento is 4.30pm so if you extend your lunch from 1 until 3 you're still hanging around waiting to get back and forget about taxis, €50 is the price you will pay from Sorrento. The sunbeds could also be a challenge, possibly just the time we went, the hotel was full. So I'm genuinely sorry it wasn't five stars but on the whole it was very good but I won't be going back

Room Tip: Get a room at the front, you'll be very disappointed if you don't!

What a beautiful hotel is Hotel Delfino. The hotel has the most beautiful aspect of Capri as you settle back on your balcony after a day laying around the beautiful pool. The pool restaurant is magnificent, the staff are very genuine and friendly. But the most magical piece of this hotel is the open terrace balcony bar - fantastic! Well to the hotel management and staff, a fantastic place for a holiday!

Just been back for our fourth visit as the site is superb and it is ideal therapy for recharging batteries. The food waspoor a few years ago but was better last year and even better this year making it pointless to go out to Sorrento topay twice(if you are booked half board). We find the staff very friendly and courteous. We can't wait to get back again.

Hotel Delfino was beautiful. The property was nicely maintained, the salt water pool and lounge area was lovely and the snack bar was conveniently located. The breakfast was very nice and staff was friendly and helpful. We loved the location and Massa Lubrense. Was close enough to Sorrento and Amalfi without being in the midst of all the traffic and crowds. I would recommend this Hotel to everyone.
