Historical Traveler Reviews Punta Tragara Capri
The hotel staff was friendly and the room was very nice. But the whole reason we stayed at this hotel was for the view and it truly was spectacular. We spent much of our first day sunbathing on our balcony looking out over the Faraglioni. We liked it so much that we had a moonlight dinner, set up perfectly by the hotel staff, looking out over the rocks. Even the walk to the hotel was scenic. A great place for romantics looking for a getaway.
Honeymoon on Capri
My wife and I stayed at the Punta Tragara Hotel for 6 nights on our honeymoon. While we enjoyed Punta Tragara I will say that it is not quite a 5 star hotel, more like 4 stars maybe 4.5. Our room was very simple and a little disappointing upon our arrival. I think the hotel could take a few pointers from a true 5 star we stayed in on the Amalfi coast, Frette linens, a bottle of prosecco upon check-in, bottled water on our bedstand each night, chocolates on our pillow, etc. The rooms seemed like they could use a bit of a face lift. The bright spots were that Punta Tragara was very clean and the marble bathroom was very nice. The grounds were beautiful and the two pools were great. The hotel staff was very friendly and all spoke excellent english. They helped us make dinner reservations each night, and arranged for all of our ferry tickets. The hotel's location is the best on the island. The 10-15 minute stroll into town is very pleasant and the scenery is like something out of a movie. In the end we had a great honeymoon and I am happy we spent time on Capri. I feel like it is almost impossible to get an accurate sense of this great island without staying for at least 2 or 3 nights. After 6-7pm when the day-trippers are gone, it is a totally different island. Our best meals were at Terazza Brunella, Il Tinello, L'Approdo, and Da Gemma. Do not miss the Buonocore bakery/gelateria!! We loved being able to see all of Capri and were able to truly appreciate its beauty.
we were in capri on our honeymoon and were lucky enough to stay at this very nice hotel. the view is the best on the island, our room was very clean and spacious. Our very large patio that over looked the water was to die for. the only negative was the bathroom, no stand up shower!!!!!!
Enchanted Secret Hideaway
The Hotel Punta Tragara is the most enchanting place to stay. The hotel is situated off and away from the center of Capri overlooking the Meditteranean Sea and the beautiful Rocks. It is utterly breathtaking. The hotel staff was extremely polite and accomodating. I would highly recommend this hotel and can't wait to go back. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
Great view but it definetely does not deserve the 5 stars
The punta tragara is fantastic, but the hotel does not deserve the 5 stars. We stayed 3 nights in a very unconfortable but clean room with a so small bathroom that it was ridiculous for 450 Euros per night.
The breakfast was not so good. We wouldn't come here again
Excellent friendly hotel
We had the pleasure to stay at the hotel for four wonderful days as a honeymoon get-away. The hotel gave us the room we requested with a the best view on the island. The staff were extremely pleasant and made recommendations for great local restaurants that were away from masses of tourists. The hotel is a pleasant walk away from shopping and designer stores which made it more private than other hotels on the island. We would love to go again.
An enchanting and sophisticated oasis
After staying several times at the well known and, in my opinion, overrated Qusisanna, I opted to try something new on my honeymoon. After much research, I chose the Punta Tragara. Suffice to say, both my wife and I were ecstatic with the choice. Not only is the hotel located directly above one of the world's most beautiful rock formations, so was our own private terrace! At night the moon would shimmer off the Fraglioni's and during the day we would watch from our room/terrace as the gulls lazily glided over the three ancient peaks. Room 56 was splendid, quite large given European standards and a rate considerably less than the likes of the Quisisanna (for a much smaller room and mediocre view, even for Capri). The room also had a well appointed bathroom with double sinks. Two saltwater pools, one with a magnificent view of Marina Piccalo, an adequate gym and cozy, comfortable public areas created an ambiance of relaxed luxery--as if we were guests at an exquisite private villa rather than a hotel (ask Ike or Churchill). The wonderful accomodations were complimented by a friendly, helpful and unpretentious staff--from which the Quisisanna in all its grandeur, could certainly learn something. Although the food (we only had lunch and breakfast) was fine, Capri offers far too many glorious epicurean experiences to restrict such adventures to any hotel property. Do yourself a favor if travelling to Capri, stay at the Punta Tragara and you'll never stay anywhere else when visiting this magical isle. P.S. unless physically impaired or adverse to peaceful strolls framed by sea, flora and architecture straight out of a painting, don't believe the "its a long walk to the hotel" rubbish you see in many reviews, it's worth every wonderful step and much easier than some would have you think. Enjoy!
Lovely Hotel situated in a secluded area
I love this hotel!!! This hotel is situated at one of the most secluded location on the island. If you want a quiet, relaxing vacation away from the day-trippers then this is the perfect place. We stayed at one of the nice rooms with a view and it is absolutely gorgeous! And to our surprise, there is also a huge round bathtub in our room. The swimming pool area is beautiful (lovely pools and spectacular view) and the staff is attentive.
The concierge also arranged a private boat tour for us, which was just fabulous! With 150 euro, the tour took us all around the island and the tour guide stopped at places for us to visit sites and stopped at beaches to let us swim. I have nothing but nice things to say about this hotel and I will definitely stay at this hotel again and again whenever I visit Capri!
Not a 5-star hotel
Great hotel but it definitely does not deserve the 5 stars, unless you think paying for toothpaste and a tootbrush in your room is acceptable. The hotel is beautifully situated on the edge of a cliff but beware that the rooms below 440 euro aren't in this building are in fact in a tawdry second building with no views to speak of. The pools are not heated, even though they are advertised as such. The service is very thin. Want a towel for your poolside chair: go and lift it out from behind the bar yourself. Want a drink by the pool? Forget it. At check-in I was given a choice of several newspapers for morning delivery, none of which ever appeared. Still, the English-speaking staff was courteous and professional for Italy. And the food was surprisingly good. The place felt somewhat abanonded and rough around the edges. It definitely is not a luxury hotel of the highest standards; I wouldn't come here for, say, a honeymoon.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone that is interested in a beautiful, quiet property situated at probably the most spectacular location on the island of Capri. With its two beautiful pools, terrace restaurant and bar, and rooms that overlook the Faraglioni rocks, it is probably the most romantic and peaceful hotel on the island. The staff is always helpful and the rooms/suites are large and seem to all have private balconies or terraces. And the fact that it is a short 15 minute walk to the centre of Capri adds to the allure of this hotel.

... have to wait another twenty minutes, we get prime seating on the right side of the little bus so we can gaze over the side of the precipitous road and exclaim “Oh My God” at the appropriate spot.
We love Anacapri. It is uncrowded and very romantic. Wandering through the flower bedecked lanes, we can quite see how this island was so popular with Roman emperors.

... the heads up to be on standby in case I needed anything from her before her flight was to leave the next day at noon. I remembered just before leaving Kansas City, CHASE sent me a different credit card from a different account that I haven't used for years, as my old one had expired. I had no idea where I put it, but I knew it was at my house. I called my other friend Malorie, who will be joining Sarah. She lives close to me, and it would be easier for her ...
... on top to complete this magical experience. Our descent turned out to be harder than the ascent, surprisingly. My Sperry's had little traction to avoid slipping on the loose gravel, but have no fear! I made it down without going down! The experience was the first of the magical weekend and it really made me appreciate about how lucky we are, especially with under three weeks left in this romantic city.

... all true. Then back in the little orange bus down to the harbour. We had coffee in a cafe right on the beach where Tim had a swim, the beaches are stony but the wateris a beautiful blue. Back on the boat and off to the green grotto where we all had a swim off the back of the boat the water was warm and clear lovely. We then did a tour of the island via the boat through rocks and in and out of grottos. We did not see ...
The top is fairly narrow and the sea a jolly long way down so much so I couldn't go too near to the edge but managed to get the photos prior to our decent. We were on a fairly tight schedule to make our ferry back, but made the chair-bus-ferry connections ok which is always a big relief. The weather packed in a bit on the way home so we were very lucky with the way it panned out for us.
The island is not cheap to visit but it is scenic and ...
