Capri Tiberio Palace
Travel Blogs from Capri
Next morning we waited on the main road for the tour to pick us up to go to Nerano, Marina del Cantone. The journey was down the bendy lanes and the views were amazing, the ride itself was lovely, we were first ones to board the boat.
Nerano is a splendid bathing locality of the Amalfitan and Sorrentina Coast and Is extended gently towards the sea, offering a very special landscape, situated between a ...
... Parmesan, Anchovies, and a traditional chocolate cake with no flour. It was different from the others in that the chefs had already boiled the potatoes and began cooking the tomatoes for the sauce so we didn't have to wait so long. After preparing our food, we sat in the restaurant and were served everything that we had made. It was great! We especially liked ...
... the bus had loaded and there were still another 56 in front of us so that translated to an hour waiting on our feet in the sun which was not appealing having already done 30 minutes of it. We made a quick decision to boost it and do Capri instead as we could use our Amalfi tickets tomorrow, we also needed to buy hats as the weather has warmed up quite a bit down south and we were feeling the need of a bit of cover!
We bought a lovely ...
... the chairlift to the highest point on the island. By now however it was quite cloudy again and getting cold but eh boys were very keen so the three of us went up and left Caroline (the wuss) in a sunny spot.
Despite the cloud the chairlift was worth the effort with good view as we ascended and a very eerie atmosphere as we hit the cloud and the visibility dropped. At the top it was a complete whiteout so we didn't linger for ...
... no exhibits, multimedia presentations or other modern use of the preservation arts. Only the usual tourist-bait shops and toilets. The actual site itself, however, is left intact and unspoiled which is terrific.
Over 2,500,000 visitors come to Pompeii each year. Without careful planning, the tourists, weather and commercial interests around the site will diminish this once-only glimpse of an entire culture, frozen in time.
Whew! Well that’s a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Capri Tiberio Palace
Sometimes people lose the sense of proportions. I'm sure this is what happened to the friend who wrote the last review (if it is genuine...).
The higher you go the better it gets
After riding a boat to Capri and hoping to find a hotel that could take us for one night, we ran into an English-speaking couple. They advised, "the higher you go, the better the hotel". Up for an adventure, we hopped into the Marriot van with our backpacks. We were given a choice of rooms and escorted to each for a decision. We chose a smaller (looked large to us) room for about $650. Yes, a great sum of money for a young couple backpacking. But the memories will last a lifetime...the best bath, best night's sleep. I've actually saved our wild fig scented bath samples for a special occasion at home.
We are going back to the same hotel in 2006 when we make our annual pilgrimage to Pizza Fest in Napoli.
My husband and I stayed at the Marriott in Capri during the end of our vacation in Italy. We had stayed in several less than favorable places up to that point so our expectations were fairly low. We were amazed and dazzled by the beauty of the hotel and the room. Our balcony with an ocean view was a place where we could sit, have a glass of champagne and strawberries (which were waiting for us when we arrived in the room), and take a REAL shower. The staff was very friendly however the bartender did not speak very good English. We mistakenly thought he said 14 euros for a glass of 1949 cognac (which my husband is now dying to find out the name of but can't remember) that ended up being 40 euros. Aside from that and a very pricey breakfast, overall our stay was excellent. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone that wants to be pampered. The prices are steep but I believe they are worth it for the room (just remember to eat somewhere else!)
Nice clean hotel, but there were definite issues and paying a whooping $700/night is not worth some of the hassles.
Do believe all of the great things you've read about this hotel. From the moment you walk in, you are embraced by the luxiourious, cool white decor, attentive (but not obtrusive) service and delicious smell of the fig scented products (soap, shampoo, conditioner) they provide.
I stayed just for one night (we stayed in Positano for 5 days - much more recommendable than Capri for a long stay) and had good a bad things during our stay. The hotel is new, with great facilities, luxury everywhere, but with a bad service: we arrived and our room was not ready, so we got angry as we were only going to stay for 1 night. If you pay 450 Euros for one night, you cant accept that. Once at the room, we opened the balcony and we found a "lovely" view of the hotel roof and sollar energy equipment!! No sea view at all, even though the hotel confirmed our booking saying: "breathtaking sea view room". I complained at the reception, but all they said was that the hotel was full. After complaining again the day after, thay accepted to reduce 10% on the bill, just before I was going to ask for a complaint form. May be I was unlucky, because the hotel is beautiful, in centre town, but if you pay that, you must ask for a perfect attention. Next time we will move to a different hotel in Capri.
Arrived at the Marriott unsure of what to expect as this is such a new hotel.
it was certainly a very good hotel and at those prices it had better be. the rooms are beautifully decorated and we booked a room with a private balcony which had wonderful views of the mediterranean. the pool and jacussi are great but they should have made some provision of heating the water slightly as it was icy cold even in august so i reckon it would be unusable from march to may and sept and october. the staff are polite, friendly helpful and cheerful and i would certainly stay nowhere else.
Sheer Luxury in Capri
We stayed here for the last two days of our honeymoon, and I have to say it was amazing.....the hotel is gorgeous, very mediteranean and tastefully decorated. The staff are very helpful and make you feel very welcome. It is located about five mins from the Piazzetta, but still manages to provide a peaceful, tranquil environment, a must after a busy day sightseeing and sunbathing. But the best part for us was the enormous balcony overlooking the pool and a wonderful views over Capri and the sea.
This hotel is absolutley first class and amazinging graceful, very Mediterranean in feeling and in the look. It has every new ammenity of a 5***** hotel. It is the only really upscale ,modern hotel on this island that is truley worth the money being charged, with the quality of a old grand hotel. The location is ideal, and is actually about a 5 minute walk to the famous Piazzetta square. The refurbished hotel, that was closed for many years, is now the sparkling new gem on the island, without a doubt. You will not give up any creature comforts while staying at this hotel.
