OutstandingPosted Sep 24, 2013
Pros: Staff, relaxed atmosphere and ambiance,
Location: Near to the harbour, shuttle into Capri, excellent view.
Luxury, close enough to the port, with regular shuttles to capri included. Amazing hotel, can't wait to come back for our anniversary.

looking forward to our next stay at Villa MarinaPosted Sep 9, 2013 on Hotels.com
We thought we'd treat ourselves by booking a room at Villa Marina, after seeing it listed as 1 of the top 25 hotels recommended on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. THE GOOD: close to Marina Grande, so much so you can reach it on foot (5-10 min walk when alighting from the boat). Very professional staff & discreet presence, so you can really feel at home. Regular hotel shuttle service to/from Capri. We booked with a discounted rate through Hotels.com, so got 1 of the smallest rooms, with no sea view. Loved it all the same: great interior design, sizeable terrace, with a power socket & excellent WiFi connection. THE VERY GOOD: Wonderful view over the bay (marina, Vesuvio, Napoli). Cleverly arranged garden, allowing guests to always find a corner for themselves on 1 of the outdoor sofas/hammocks/deck chairs. The wellness centre. Free on the day of your arrival. Thoroughly recommend allowing some time for this! THE NOT SO PERFECT: a matter of personal taste, but the music, which you can hear from all outside areas (pool, garden, restaurant) sounded like lift music, playing cover versions of overly popular songs. Ziqu (hotel's restaurant): good food, but no surprises. We dined at Villa Crespi (2 Michelin stars near Lake Orta) earlier this year, where they serve you a meal you will never forget for the same price. Then again, prices are on average 20-30% higher around the Amalfi Coast, so this is more to do with having the right expectations when booking a table.

Hotel close to the harborPosted Aug 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
I booked this hotel as it was the best price in the generally over-priced area of Capri (which I will probabaly never visit again given the dissapointment of the blue grotto, price for value and endless tourists). The hotel's location is close to the harbor, hence I don't think they would get too many clients without their free shuttle van service to the center of town (20Euros in regular taxi - if the driver refuses to use the meter which they did several times during our stay). The hotel amenities reminded me of IKEA furniture and not a 5 star quality and our room had no view. Moreover, the small pool is dissappointing and breakfast is very generic, at best. The good part of this stay was that the room was OK for the price that you pay (I believe it was 400USD) and all the employees were super nice and attentive.

great place, some issues need improvementPosted Jun 4, 2013
Pros: breakfast, dinner, views
Location: Close to Marina Grande
This is a nice 5 star hotel; the pros: great views of the marina grande and bay of naples, rooms are of decent size, breakfast included and is excellent; also dinner experience was absolutely great, food tastes heavenly here; beds are fairly comfortable, there is free wifi; walkable to marina grande. Cons: the shuttle van operates on a schedule and at times you may have to wait for it, though not very long. It would have been best if it operated on demand for such a hotel, since 4 star hotels in the area have vans that operate on demand; heating may be an issue here, even though it was end of May when we went there, weather has not been warm; for some reason, their A/C/heating unit couldn't get any warm air even after our request; the thermostat doesn't work if you want to set it up higher. For a 5 star hotel, I expect them to have heating and A/C options available 365 days a year and not having to call the front desk multiple times. A big miss for a 5 star hotel.

Superb choice in Capri!Posted Oct 12, 2012
Pros: The room, the shuttle service, the spa and the breakfast!
Cons: No staff attending the bar, no alcohol in the minibar...
Location: Brilliant nice and quiet. Require the shuttle to get to Capri center
A fantastic experience, lovely environment where you can fully relax and enjoy your stay. Friendly staff especially the younger lady who was superb! Fantastic breakfast! One small thing, they might want to do more with the bar as this is a nice area but mostly without staff which makes it uninviting. Also no alcohol in the minibar is a minor point as that should not happen in a 5 star resort!

Great for honeymooners!Posted Sep 12, 2012
Wonderful view and great staff! They upgraded us to a suite because it was our honeymoon. They also gave us welcome drinks and snacks. Great pool. Overall great stay. The only negatives were that the breakfast was just ok (needs eggs) and a lot of stuff kept breaking in our room (i.e. our key didnt work, our toilet broke, etc.)

Beautiful Grounds but Fair RestaurantPosted Aug 1, 2012 on Hotels.com
We recently visited Capri for 1 night of our 10 day trip to Italy. The grounds and the front desk staff were great! However, before leaving for our trip, I e-mailed the Concierge and asked for restaurant recommendations being that this was an anniversary trip. I specifically said that I wanted to get a feel for the local flavor. The Concierge suggested that we have dinner at the “highly rated” restaurant Ziqu at the hotel and that they would then arrange for transportation to the city center for a special evening. This sounded great so I made my reservations accordingly. Upon arrival it was obvious that this was not the highly rated restaurant we had been assured. Although the view was beautiful, we were one of only two couples having dinner that evening. In addition, the food was unremarkable and the local wine was the worst we had on our entire trip. After dinner I found that our transportation for our special evening was nothing more than the hotel shuttle which departs every half hour. We did go to the city center and it was only then that I realized the abundance of restaurants and entertainment that would have been available. Unfortunately, this was our only night in Capri so we missed out. Overall the staff were helpful, the grounds were beautiful and the views breathtaking. Our room was nicely decorated but the beds were the most uncomfortable of our trip. Also, the hotel is not close to anything so you will need a cab or a shuttle if you leave the hotel.

Lovely hotel in a wonderful part of the world!Posted Sep 10, 2011 on Hotels.com
Hotel was absolutely stunning and staff could not do enough for us. Free hotel shuttle service was very useful and extremely reliable, from pick up at the marina right through to drop off at the end of our stay. Front desk could have been a bit more helpful in offering suggestions about what to do in the area and getting around ( as the shuttle did not work 24 hours). However, in general staff were extremely helpful, and polite. Our room was like a small townhouse which was perfect at the end of our 4 weeks of travel. Location was great. Definitely recommend this hotel.
