“Friendly and peaceful with views to die for.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

We've just come back from 7 nights at BBLaGuardia; it was hard to tear ourselves away from the views, the peace and above all from Umberto and Ciro, who "adopted" us. If its nightlife and easy transport that you want, then this place - well, the island as a whole really - is not for you. Don't expect huge rooms either. But our philosophy is that bedrooms are for sleeping in and it's the common space, the location and the hosts who make the experience and none of these can be faulted. Sun loungers, a small pool, comfortable chairs, a flower filled terrace (certainly in May), breakfast outdoors overlooking the Med, a small fridge in your room, welcome drinks and snacks, free (though occasionally intermittent) wifi.
Breakfast is fairly basic; yoghurt, a croissant, dried biscuit, juice, coffee or tea ... and fruit. Our beds were good and hard and the shutters and curtains did a good job of shutting out the light. Umberto and Ciro are mostly at home, pottering around. Depending on how WE felt, we were either left to our own devices or embraced into the household.
Would we go back? That would be an emphatic yes from both myself and my 13 year old daughter.
To get there, take the bus from Marine Grande to Anacapri terminus; Umberto will pick you up if he knows what bus you are on. This B&B is halfway to Faro - indeed there is a nice but steep 20 minute walk to the lighthouse from just next door - so unless you are big into walking up hills you will want to use the bus service (every 20 minutes until c. 9pm) from Faro-Anacapri.

We originally had booked a two night stay but after spending a ten minute car ride with the charming and energetic umberto and stepping onto the terrace and seeing the view booked a third night right away. Clean and comfortable rooms, wine and snacks on the terrace on arrival. What really makes this place special are the hosts umberto and ciro. Umberto can recommend you anythibg you need, his freindliness, graciuosness and generosity are incredible, coming back from a day of walking around the island umberto invited us for dessert and drinks with his friends. Brilliant!

A few years ago, my husband and I stayed at La Guardia over the Easter Holidays. Umberto had arranged for a taxi to collect us from the port and we felt at home immediately. The ride to our accommodation was spectacular and Umberto was there to greet us on arrival. Our room was absolutely beautiful, not large but very comfortable. Umberto advised us on where to eat, where to visit,advice on transport,walks to take. Yes Capri is touristy but it is easy to get away from the crowds and on an evening when the day trippers leave the island takes on a magic all of its own. We had a magical Easter there ,one that I remember with great affection. Ciro and Umberto are truly wonderful hosts.

Another long overdue review, we stayed 3 or 4 years ago.....ok so it is a little out of the way, but when i look back on my trip to capri i remember most fondly this b&b, the hosts, the amazing view (completely still water) and the walk back to the b&b. It was real italy staying with real people. The rooms are a little small but the view makes up for this. Umberto the host is amazing. (we came back late one night and ciro told us that he had been up all night worrying about us!!- we felt very bad- but where else would your hosts treat you like family like this!!) He also organised us taxis to two restaurants where i had two of the most lovely meals ever. i only wish i could remember the name. Ask him for the one that looks out to the bay of naples. The gnocci in gorgozola is hands down the best dish of my life. i talk about it all the time. The roads of capri are like little toy town roads with tiny cars. Very cute. You do need to walk a bit from anacapri so i would recommend the bus but we missed it one time and walked at midnight and was no problem. This was one of those locations with a view which makes you start designing what your home in that spot would be like!!

I've been there the forth time and I don't understand the negative reviews. The B&B 2011 was restored, and for a privat B&B is very good maintaind and not expensive riguarding the usual Capri level. I think that the most of objections could be spared if the tourist would inform itself also through the internet befor visiting Capri. (i.e. busses to get, prices, etc.)
Here is a very good website for infos about Naples and Capri: www.italy-city-travel-guides.com or www. cities-step-by-step-com.

We have had the most fantastic 7 nights ever living in La Guardia. We love the nature, the ocean, the peace and the charm of the hosts. We love to choose the local way of eating, travelling and living. At this place you can enjoy each others company, feel the scilence an the carefull and naural charming service from Ciro and Umbertho. Rent a scooter,feel the warm wind driving, take the walk, go by bus, sit on the terrase and enjoy the fantastic vue and sunset. Eat at the local resturant (Fantastic pizza) or dress up and take a walk in the small streets of Capri with all the rich people or sit on the bench on the square in Anacapri and get at chat with the old locals. So we give our best recomends to this place. Lone og Henrik, Denmark.

Accommodation, amenities, location, etc can be rated but not the warmth and hospitality of a person. It cannot be quantified by numbers.

We were to goto Santorini but my friend who had been here a couple years ago, strongly influenced me to goto Anacapri and stay at Umberto's La Gaurdia. And I thank him for that!

My wife and I were soo overwhelmed by the hospitality shown by Umberto and Ciro that we keep talking about it every now and then and we would love to go back again in the future (though it is a long way from where we come). From the moment we met them at the bus stop to the last hug and goodbye - we were super well looked after!

If this is not enough, you will simply LOVE the location , the ambiance and the views! The breakfast is elaborate. The room was spacious and we loved the way it was done up specially for us for the honeymoon. Breakfast was very good and filling. Not just that they even pulled us into a family dinner , served us some great wine and pasta!

We visited quite a few other cities in this trip - Paris, Venice, Rome, Florence, Luzern, but we value and cherish our experience at Anacapri more than at any place else. They make you feel at home and we were sad to that it had to last only for a short while.

I got nothing more to say. Just go there and you will love them and thank us :)


Cheers

p.s I would also recommend is the family run restaurant "A Curtiglia" whihc is about 7-10 mins walk and a very hospitable master chef "Mama". The bakes dragged us outta home and straight to the kitchen! :)

Room Tip: We economical and more than value for money!
