“Spectacular service and sunsets”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

We stayed here in a Privilege Room for 4 days. Fantastic. The staff were well trained and spoke a variety of languages, English was never a problem here. The other guests were mostly European and couples.

A romantic hotel with well designed rooms, spa, bar and restaurant areas. The staff recommended us great restaurants in nearby towns in the Sorrentine Penninsula. We can't believe that their own restaurant Maxi hasn't received a Michelin star yet. Delicious.

The staff also helped to arrange a private boat tour to Capri where we had lunch at Il Riccio and jumped off boat and swam in a beautiful grotto. Personally, one of the best days of our lives.

During the day we swam at their private beach which was clean and well attended (thank you Angelo). At night, we slept with our windows open and fell asleep to the crashing rhythmic waves from the sea.

We will come back again and again.

Room Tip: All rooms have sunset views, I don't think that there is a bad room in this small boutique hotel...

My (now) husband and I chose Capo La Gala as our reception hotel for our wedding. Having travelled out last April to have a look around lots of hotels in the Sorrento area, Capo stood out by miles- with the most spectacular, breath taking setting! We instantly booked a date there for 2013. Since last April, the staff have made organising an abroad wedding a doddle... They replied to e-mails very quickly and efficiently and sorted any requests we had with no hesitations! Needless to say all our guest were equally amazed by the setting when we arrived as well as the food, which will be talked about for many years to come!!! The staff were so friendly and nothing was too much of a hassle!! We will definitely return on our anniversaries to come!!thankyou so much for making our night so special for us!!!

Capo la Gala is a beautiful place. The owners have gone out of their way to create a retreat from the tourist hustle of Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast. With only 22 rooms, the hotel feels small and special. We stayed in one of only four rooms without a terrace; however, the views were so stunning that we didn't care. From the staff at the registration desk to the pool attendant, the service was fantastic.

We had a car for day trips, however, used the hotel shuttle to get in and out of Vico Equense for dinner.

The price tag is high, but with all of the amenities, well worth it. I hope I have the chance to go back.

This was the most warm,welcoming,friendly,relaxing hotel we have ever visited. Wonderful setting with beautiful views. Set on different levels with with plenty of space. The hotel was full but at times it felt as though we were the only guests. Room with balcony and sea a few yards away. Fabulous sunsets. Candles lit around the grounds in the evening. Very romantic. Wonderful food. Long breakfasts, jazz evenings by the pool with cocktails, excellent spa. Christal was fantastically professional and lovely. Great decor throughout. We had the platinum menu for a special evening...wow! Delicious food without being pretentious. And fun. The staff/guest relationship was perfect. Unforgettable.

Room Tip: Really worth getting a balcony

A real treat to stay here. The upgrade to a room with it's own balcony overlooking the sea was a real luxury. Peaceful though within reach of local sights by courtesy shuttle to station. Michelin restaurant lives up to its reputation. Wonderful staff. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Capo la Gala is a wonderfully relaxing and beautiful spot. The main highlight is the fantastic setting and view. Going to sleep with the sound of the waves is very special. The second highlight for us was the very warm, friendly and efficient service. The food was fantastic and the spa and outdoor gym lovely. We would highly recommend it for anyone looking to recharge their batteries.

My husband and I spent four days here during our honeymoon in September. It was the first stop on our trip around the Amalfi Coast, and it was perfect way to start the vacation. Everything about Capo La Gala was ideal from the moment we drove down to the its ocean-front property. After a long trip from NYC (on the Naples ferry via flight into Rome), it was a sight for exhausted eyes. The staff was welcoming and helpful. The hotel is decorated in a minimalist, nautical style with Sicilian art hanging on the stone walls. Our room looked out on the water and had a private balcony and spa (though the water was not heated since its solar-powered). We dined in the restaurant most afternoons and evenings, and the food was excellent. Straightforward, high-quality, fresh Italian cuisine. The outdoor gym overlooked the water and remains my best experience on a treadmill thus far. We went into the nearby town, Vico Equense, one evening for dinner, but otherwise we stayed mostly confined to a steady routine of reading, eating, swimming and aperitivo-ing. I recommend the same routine to all who visit, and couldn't be happier with our experience there.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony! Perfect for a 4 p.m. Aperol Spritz with a good book.
