Thank you to the Hotel Il Girasole! I should have written this review a while ago, but I will take the time to do it now, because I have the best memories of my time here.
The memories aren't from the hotel itself (though that was lovely as well) but from the feeling we got from just being here. The staff was wonderful, warm, and embracing. At the time we traveled, Nardino and Sylvana were still running the hotel with their children, Angela and Francesco. We were blown away by how hospitable they were, welcoming us into their "home" and making us a part of the family! They even cooked us a wonderful pasta and barbecue meal the first night, talking and laughing with us for hours. At the time, my best friend and I were backpacking through Europe together, so it was nice to feel warm and protected and so very welcomed!
We enjoyed it so much that what should have been only a two or three night visit ended up being two weeks!! One of my fondest memories was waking up and being served breakfast out on the terrace overlooking the ocean. It was spectacular. I literally cried when I had to leave.
Hotel Il Girasole is now being run by Angela and Francesco and to this day, we still keep in touch! If you're ever in Capri, stop by the Hotel Il Girasole. You'll love the way they make you feel. And make sure to say "Hello" to the Orlandos for me!
