5 Best Hotels in Capri [Luxe Family-Friendly Options!]

best hotel in capri

Capri is absolutely stunning and you might just find yourself wanting to stay forever. Of course, there are a couple of important things you need to plan out before you go. One of these things is where you will stay on this beautiful island. Many people only do a day trip to Capri from Naples or Sorrento, so by spending the night, you will be one of the few. Trust us, this is a good thing! It simply means finding a hotel can be a little more tricky. We’ve done most of the research for you, though. Check out the 5 best family-friendly and luxurious hotels in Capri!

A Little Bit About Capri

If you are going to be staying in Capri, there are a couple of things you should know! Capri is known for upscale shopping and hotels, but you can enjoy the island without either of these things if you’d like. There is plenty of rugged landscape to explore and incredible views from just about anywhere on this small island. Not to mention, there are plenty of incredible restaurants to try out. 

You will arrive and depart from Capri via a ferry. When your ferry arrives you will be at the main port, Marina Grande. From there, you can take the funicular up to Capri Town or hop on a boat to visit the famous Blue Grotto.

Staying the night in Capri will give you the opportunity to have a boat day and a day exploring town, which is the best way to do it! You will also have time to visit Anacapri, the main town on the western side of the island. Capri Town is where most of the more luxurious hotels are going to be, and this location will put you in the hustle and bustle of things. You can also choose to stay in Anacapri, but these will be more quiet and peaceful stays.

This little hotel has a romantic feel and plenty of room to lounge and to take in the views throughout your stay. There are no TVs or wifi, but if you book a panoramic sea room you will have a balcony facing out towards the Faraglioni Rocks and that is much better than technology anyways.
