This is one of the great places to stay on Capri.
Your host Toni and his wife offer a personal touch you might not find anywhere else though I'm sure some will go close.
His command of English means that he is in demand also as a tourist guide, his other job.
There are only three rooms and, unluckily for us, we got the small one which, being realistic, is suitable for one person. With two in there it's a little cramped and your bed options aren't great. I had to sleep on a fold out bed and Rosemarie's wasn't much better.
The room was always clean though and the breakfast was a delight. Heck, I could have sat there and eaten nothing and still been happy.
The location just up the road from Capri towards Anacapri means that you have splendid views. As Toni so succinctly put it, "Imagine waking up every day to this view". I should add it would matter little where you stayed on Capri you would have some sort of expensive vista.
It's when you come down to breakfast on the balcony that you feel special. Somehow we never met the other guests though apparently there were some.
There are three rooms, two are spacious, we got the other one. Should you get one of the two spacious ones I'm sure you will experience 100% satisfaction.
Loved this B&B, highly recommended...
Stayed in Monte Solaro for two nights. A family run B&B that has the most personalised service we have came across. Constanzo fetched us from the Anacapri town to his B&B. On the same evening, he saved us from the unexpected thunderstorm. Room is big and clean so is the bathroom. Even though the B&B may be a little difficult to reach but my husband and I enjoyed the daily workout up to Constanzo's B&B. Continental breakfast is served, would prefer to have eggs to go along. Nevertheless, we still enjoy our stay in Monte Solaro B&B.
There are only four rooms so booked early.

Il Portico is a very comfortable guest house run by Antonio Pansa and very reasonable rates. Overlooking the Grand Marina about 1/4 up on the hill, it is about mid point between the Marina and the town of Capri. We had a wonderful Marina view room with incredible views toward Naples and mountains on both sides. Our three adult daughters stayed in a huge family room, complete with stove and refridgerator and overlooked the garden. It is right on the walking path to get to Capri, maybe a 10 minute walk.
We spent a little more then a week here and love it.
Staff speak several languages and grew up in area. Excellent pool and veiw to die for!
Did I mention the food?
Capri is very un-friendly to backpackers, so if anyone asks where you're staying on the island, lie and name a hotel. If you do want sheltered accomodations, there is a quaint bed-and-breakfast off the road from Anacapri to Marina Piccola (can't remember the name, but you'll see signs).
The further you get from Anacapri (the top of the island) the less expensive and less crowded it will get.
There is a "campground" in the woods off the road down to the Blue Grotto. It offers a great view of the Napoli skyline, but don't let the locals know you're there.
