Darling, you must stay at Quisisana if you are staying on Capri. EVERYBODY stays there. If you are looking for a rich man, this is where you will find him. DO NOT stay at Luna; the staff is very petty.

Cat, I have never hear of Caesar Augustus, but, Punta Tragara does have a good reputation. My friend said it has very good views of the sea. But, if you want a "scene" and to visit with the beautiful people, you would stay at either Quisisana, or to a lesser extent, La Scallinatella. <BR><BR>But, you don't have to stay at either hotel to enjoy the ambience of Capri. You could stay at a cheaper hotel and just go to Quisisana and sit on the veranda for a drink.

Obviously John has never been to Capri and is passing along second hand info...It is a very small place. Caesar Augustus looked lovely when we visited last Spring. We didn't stay there, but it did look lovely. It is difficult to judge the luxury quotient, the views and grounds are extraordinary. The romance quotient goes way up when the day-trippers leave around 5-6PM.

Yikes - if you belong with the 'beautiful people' then you probably wouldn't be spending your free time on Fodors online.<BR><BR>In anycase, regarding Hotel Luna, the gardens and views are fantastic but I agree with John there was something about the staff that I didn't like. I wouldn't return (but I would stroll through their grounds). Luna is also separated from the part of town where jet set / beautiful / annoying(?) people hang out.

cat,<BR><BR>if you are with a romantic companion then the europa palace is fantastic. we stayed there for our honeymoon in 2000 and found it luxurious and romantic.i think dinner is required and is probably a good idea since not much happening in anacapri at night. <BR><BR>if you are looking for more excitement and traveling alone or with friends then capri town would be a better choice. quissana looked nice, certainly in the middle of the action,shopping and fun.<BR><BR>we loved capri and anacapri and trust you will too.

We stayed at Casa Morgano in October and loved it. It's owned by the same people as Quisisana and Scalinatella. The hotel is small and the rooms all have balconies with beautiful views. Punta Tragara has very interesting architecture and looks like it would have good views. The Caesar Augustus looked nice but we just went by it and I can't say what it's like inside.<BR>I was glad we stayed in the Capri Town area because we could walk to lots of places to eat and shop.<BR>

Cat, we stayed at Caesar Augustus last June. The first night we had a shabby room near the lobby, but complained and the next morning they moved us to a gorgeous room with balcony overlooking the sea. (They were in the process of renovating the rooms.) Very beautiful and romantic spot with the greatest pool--see photos at http://www.correctedenglish.com/S-It...yframeset.html (scroll down the travelog text in the right-hand column to the Capri section close to the end, and click on highlighted words to see pix).<BR><BR>Friends stayed at Luna last May and liked it so much they are returning this year.

What about La Minerva or Relais Maresca in November? Two of the few places still open at that time of year. Anyone been there in Nov?

Sherri: Thanks for the reply. Casa Morgano was on my list, too, but they're closed in November. Did La Minerva have good views? How about the staff - friendly, helpful? Thanks!

Dear Cat:<BR>the Mirvarna was great newly renovated .I had a delux or superior room I forgot what they called them; but it had a private balcony new bathroom with a view from the tub and a world class staff.<BR>Luigi and Mario( I think that was his name).<BR>If you want to see photos. log on to www.karenbrown punch inns by location then punch Naples and you should find it.<BR>All and all I was very happy with this choice; there are fancier places; but the warmth of the staff was really endearing to me; I will definately return.<BR>The only draw back is there is no pool; but that should not be a big concern the time of year you will be there( not exaclly swimming weather) although most of the fancier hotels will let you use their pool off season.<BR>La Dolce Capri

Dear Cat;<BR>this is a post scpript to my reply above.<BR>One thing to keep in mind about Capri is the higher up the better your views will be ( the Minerva is not that high up the hill compared to some of the other suggesstions) but you also will not have to walk up those hills after along day of site seeing; just something to consider.<BR>La Dolce Capri
