I spent a week at this lovely little hotel at the end of July with my son and daughter, aged 14 and 17 respectively. Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful and we had a spacious, comfortable room with a covered sitting area opening up to beautiful sea views. We had supper in Amalfi, Positano and Conca dei Marina and then four evenings on the lovely terrace of the hotel restaurant. The set menu (25 euros) was far more interesting and better value than anywhere else that we tried and the location outstanding, watching the sun set over the headland of Priano and the cliffs of Capri, with the lights of fishing boats twinkling in the foreground. I particularly loved having breakfast on the terrace with the sea view and bougainvillea, enjoying fresh orange juice, fruit salad and superb pastries (there are also cold meats, cheeses and a hot option). We used the local buses extensively and found them to be very reliable and good value, although sometimes a little crowded. We also spent two days at Conca dei Marina and were whizzed around the headland in Luigi's smart little white rib for a day swimming off the beach and lunch. Other days we walked down to the hotel's private cove and relaxed on the loungers, swimming off the rocks and dipping in to the little rock pool where non-swimmers can cool off. Every evening we would have a hot(cool) tub (nice temperature) and then relax and dry off in the sun or shade of the hanging gardens. The boat trip to Capri was great fun and I would recommend hiring a car for transfers and also to be able to visit Pompeii and Herculaneum independently so one can go either in the early morning or later afternoon to avoid the heat of the midday sun. We used a very friendly local taxi which was very good but expensive for excursions if one prefers to avoid a bus trip. I am already trying to work out when I can go back to La Conca Azzurra!
