Concierge.com's insider take:
Perched along one of Capri's most beautiful walking paths, this romantic 30-room boutique run by the Morgano family (of Quisisana fame) feels like a private villa above the sea. (The name means "little stairway," referring to the hotel's terraced layout, with entrance and reception at the top). It's the perfect place for an intimate tryst, with large rooms well-screened from other guests. The rooms and suites are luxurious and modern, with alcove beds, sunny marine color schemes, and tiled bathrooms; all have panoramic terraces. Some have two baths and whirlpools. The pool is tiny but delightful, with a snack bar and shade trees—though the plastic sun loungers lower the tone somewhat. Guests can make use of the Quisisana's facilities (for a fee) to practice their forehand or get a massage.
Open from Easter to the end of October.
