Exceeds expectations for a picky NYer!
Posted Oct 19, 2016
WOW! This hotel was in the best location, the staff ROCKED, the rooms were amazing (definitely spring for a hot tub on the balcony-you will not regret it!!), the restaurant was perfect with a gorgeous view, free breakfast buffet was great, beds super comfortable, bathroom really nice with a Jacuzzi tub and a fun Jetsons' type shower and a bidet, fluffy towels and bathrobes/slippers. The highlight for us was beginning and ending every day on the balcony in the hot tub with the view of the beautiful ocean. My only regret was that we only spent two nights here!
I could see staying here for an entire week, and it's perfectly placed to explore places like Praino and Capri (ferry and other areas of touristy interest. However, we loved it so much that we spent both days on the beach - it's a short 10 minute walk down the hill to the beach where you can rent a beach chair and get drinks served to you for a nominal fee (like less than 25 euros I think-well worth the ability to drink wine on the beach!). This top 10 beach is absolutely stunning-rocks and black volcanic sand with a stunning view of the town and cliffs.
There are many other reviews that complained about the busy road in front - do not listen to them! You want to have the ability to drive or take a cab to your hotel where it's not going to be a hairy situation lugging your bags up or down steep cobble stoned streets, and many of the hotels I saw in town looked inconvenient for this purpose, despite their charm
