Fodor's Expert Review La Scalinatella

Via Tragara 10, Capri, Campania, 80073, Italy

If you're bronzed, beautiful, or both, this is your kind of hotel—a white Moorish mansion that evokes Hollywood-style Capri, complete with hillside terraces (indeed, the name means "little stairway"), winding paths, bougainvillea arbors, and an Architectural Digest opulence. The interior features Venetian blackamoor statues, Empire-era consoles, and Valentino fabrics; guest rooms have overstuffed sofas, bright colors, large terraces, and his-and-her bathrooms (most with whirlpool baths). Outside, one of Capri's bluest pools is the fetching setting for delicious luncheons.

  • all rooms have a sea view
  • his-and-her bathrooms
