I chose this hotel as the first destination for our honeymoon. I had read ALL of the reviews on trip advisor, and was slightly concerned that this may have not been the best choice of hotels based on a few negative reviews. I was wrong, this hotel is FANTASTIC all around! Here are the quick notes I made.
Staff - most spoke good English. Very accomidating in arranging reservations for dinner, rides to anywhere on the island, or directing guests to entertainment/activities. Extremely friendly.
Food - Based on Trip Advisor reviews, we did not have dinner at the hotel, so no comment there. We did have room service multiple times as well as the included breakfast a few times. The food was always excellent, as well as the service.
Room - Deluxe Sea View (number 314 I think). The view was fantastic from the bedroom and the bathroom. The deck was a good size, bigger and more private than those to the west of us. The room size was slightly smaller than I expected, but arranged well and we never felt cramped.
Grounds - Very well maintained, and very expansive given the cliff side location.
Bar - Great for late afternoon and after dinner drinks. A fun place for a cigar or just to watch the lights of Sorrento and Naples.
Overall Feel - very relaxed. The staff is not in your face, but always close by and willing to help with ANYTHING if asked. The guests were friendly but everyone kept to themselves most of the time, which I liked. Guest ages ranged from late 20s to 80s, mostly in the 30-40s range.
Final Comment - I have concluded, like a few others, that the negative comments regarding this hotel are from demanding and snooty travelers. My suggestion to readers, if you want the 4 seasons treatment, go to the 4 seasons (or somewhere in Capri, not Anacapri), and not here, you will only disturb this wonderful place...
Thank you Caesar Augustus Hotel!
