This recently refurbished hotel may be small but while it lacks in size, it is ample in views and charm. Forty rooms all feature balconies or a terrace with a view of the sea, with desk areas, sitting areas and convertible sofa beds. The hotel’s swimming pool also overlooks the sea, with snack service offered daily between 1 and 4 p.m.

Our great stay began even before our trip happened--they helped book reservations for our anniversary dinner and helped coordinate the easiest most pleasant transfer from the marina to the hotel. After 9 hours on a plane--it was a seamless, no-stress transfer. THANK YOU! Ok-now the hotel! Check in was perfect and they gave a great overview of the island which was helpful. The views (i think) no matter WHERE you stay in the hotel are going to be unreal. We asked for a balcony room 2 days in and they happily obliged. Toiletries, and amenities were perfect. The daily breakfast was so convenient and had a lot of variety. The staff was AMAZINGLY helpful and nice. The pool area was clean and gorgeous. Now for the shout-outs: The front desk (I hate that I forgot names) but you guys are such wonderful people. Fernando(?), the guy who took our luggage--WHAT A DOLL! We appreciate your helpful, and enthusiastic energy immensely. And last but not least, Inshan(?) the outside bartender--attentive, so friendly, and just the warmest personality. WE FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS PLACE. I pray to get back here again some day...THANKS FOR THE DREAM VACATION!
So the wife had wanted to go to Capri because she's an incurable romantic and she wanted to see the sights and soak up the wonderfulness of the island. We used the Hotel della Piccola Marina as our base which was chosen for the generous room sizes, the central location, the view and the apparent good value for money. I was proven to be right on all counts. This was a special treat for my wife so I wanted to arrange some sort of island-seeing trip (and just hoped there was a better option than by boat). The reception staff were able to pull a miracle out of the hat and I happily gathered up all the brownie points from the wife for giving her a fantastic birthday Capri memory to savour. I can highly recommend this hotel and its staff.
