Vaikka just syötiin taas aamulla aloitetaan; otamme hotellin aamupalan ja miten ihana saada suolaista aamulla ja tummaa leipää! Aamiaisen jälkeen menen altaalle ja mies hoitaa työasioitaan, aurinko paistaa pilvettömältä taivaalta. Juttelen nuoren ruotsalaispariskunnan kanssa, joka ei uskalla altaaseen, kun vesi on kylmää. Sovimme, että menevät, kun …
... as busy as the boat launch at clear lake.
We made a couple of stops on the way back to look at some neat rock formations along the coast and prior to docking at Positano Arno brought out more champagne, limoncello, cakes, pastries, and strawberries with little cookies on squewers. Then he gave us each a pair of earrings. We sure weren’t expecting that and we spent the next few minutes discussing who we could re-gift them to…lol

After returning to Sorrento at the end of the day we took a drive to Positano on the Amalfi coast to see where we would be going on tomorrows boat ...

That only lasted about 5 minutes then things settled before more buzzer pressing, doors clanging and then noise and activity outside. An hour later we managed to get to sleep again. We found out at breakfast that everyone heard it and the banging was an anxious tenant who should have left the wine in the bottle as it was put.
Breakfast provided by the husband and wife ...

We hopped down into the very unstable rowing boat and were rowed over to the ticket boat where we bought our tickets, our chatty guide Marco made it clear that he expected a tip especially as he had negotiated Ollie's discount! Approaching the grotto it seemed impossible that ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Weber Ambassador Capri
Avoid - total rip off
Booked suite on strength of web site details. Rooms were cramped and dirty and did not meet expectations. Although they moved us twice the hotel just does not match its advertising. We ended up in a standard room with a nice view but where everything fell apart on touch (shower/TV/Fridge). On asking for an alarm call were told we didn't need one as we'd be woken by the noise from the restauarant at 7 anyway. We moved out the next morning.
My new wife and I spent the most fantastic ten days at the Webber on the Isle of Capri. The location was special, the staff fantastic and the service was also up to scratch. The free mini-bus into the centre was great and the drivers must be applauded for always smiling and taking care of you. Breakfast was a treat with a great view from the terrace, made all the more fun under the charms of Guiseppe and Gianni.
It was okay
No pool. It would have been perfect if it had a pool. The public beach was not 8 meters away like the hotel's website claims. It was about a 5 minute walk. The breakfast was nice and the room was clean.
What we discovered the most was the hotel staff was incredibly rude.
They treated us poorly and disrespectful.
Very good but beware no pool!
Good hotel, quiet side of Capri, clean, nice service, too bad they have a large picture of a swimming pool under the title "the amenities" but there is none. It is nearby but expensive (17euros/person/day). Beware of the manager : not a nice person.
Please do not stay
In over 20 years of traveling throughout the world, we have never been purposely deceived by an add for a hotel before. It was quite shocking to arrive at this hotel to find no pool and no private beach as was so prominently displayed on their web site. We were also insulted by the rehearsed lines of the staff saying that the pool was being repaired.
There was not even room for the pool that was displayed on their web site touting "real" photographs. The beach available was not their private beach which resulted in a 17E minimum daily fee. Upon demand, this was refunded back to us, but deception and added fees were at every turn. Others were deceived and shouting matches occurred with the staff. Please stay away!
One of the nicest places in the world
I can't say enough good about the webber amabassador hotel. The peole were outstanding, teh breakfast a feast, and the view unmatched.
I have travelled extensively through europe and no where else have i
received such a warm welcome. This is by far one fo the best. If you
are fortunate enough to stay on this property it will be a privilege.
It surely was mine. c.r. canney
We had only one night to stay on Capri, but we couldn't have chosen better that the Weber. A beautiful view, lovely rooms with balconies overlooking the sea, service excellent. Trying to persuade my daughter to spend her honeymoon there!
We stayed for 3 nights in Jun/2003.From the spacious terrace , we could enjoy the magnificent view of marina piccola , Faraglioni rocks , and so on.It was especially wonderful that a starlit sky and moonlight reflected in a sea surface. Also near Capri town center , it was too distant to walk from hotel. But free transportation service and public autobus were available , there was no problem. Because it takes only 2 minutes to walk to marina piccola , swim wear plus one is enough from our room to marina piccola. Front lady was not sociable , but kind enough and faithful. The rate was very reasonable at Capri area.Facilities were spacious and clean, but , regrettably , old .As the whole , I think that Hotel Weber Ambassador is satisfactory enough and recommend.
Wonderful stay on Capri
I can only give the Hotel Weber Ambassador the highest of marks. We stayed for one week in May of 2003. The room was spacious, modern and very clean. The views from the hotel were breathtaking. The staff, especially Gian Carlo, were very professional, helpful and courteous. The rate was reasonable. All of the services, such as car services to town center, laundry, money exchange, internet service, breakfast, bar service were right on the money! The Weber is located just slightly away and over from the Capri Town Center, so it is peaceful and quiet. We were on Capri for our wedding, so needlesss to say, it was an important time. Everything was perfect! We plan on returning to the Weber for our anniversary. We had a great Capri experience!
We stayed at the Weber Ambassador in July 2001. Even though we had a confirmed booking of a superior room with balcony, we were given one without. When asking about this, the female proprietor was extremely rude to us, and said that "for this price you cannot expect a balcony". We politely replied that the hotel had given us this price without us even trying to get a good bargain. After a lot of huffing and puffing, she said that we would have to wait until the next day before getting everything sorted out. This meant we missed going to the beach the next day as we were having to await their decision. Finally we got the kind of room we had actually booked. We also witnessed her being extreme rude to another client, whom in his turn were trying to argue a point politey with her. After reading the comment on *****, I think you can safely say that this kind of rude behaviour is more of a habit of hers than her "having a bad day". Stay away!
