We spent a very pleasant 3 nights here. The hotel is set away from the town in a beautiful, peaceful, natural setting. A hammock is provided to make the most of this. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful and there is a shuttle service to and from the port/ town/ beach which is very frequent and only takes about... More

Put it simply, we loved the hotel and the island. Ventotene is very remote from Finland but worth of long travel. So peaceful, so beautiful, so extraordinary. Very much Italian. The hotel owner was very helpful and it was great to see how the whole family took care of the guests. We enjoyed lovely dinners, the scenery was superb and... More

In the middle of the island, the hotel offers a quiet stay in comfortable rooms with great view on the sea and the Santo Stefano island. The owners are nice though not too generous in giving tips on the island. The food is of very good quality, thanks to fresh products from the owners' field and to the art of... More

This is a place of dreams, nestled in the cliffs above Mare Tirenno just above the town of Ventotene on the island of the same name. Family-run by Pier Filippo, Adalgisa and their son Leonardo, it has an end-of-the-rainbow vibe. Many of the rooms are cut out of the cliffs with small terraces overlooking the sea and the sea gulls... More

I am not sure whether I am allowed to write a review of a hotel where I did not sleep, but I would like to share my - very positive - views with you. I had reserved a room in the hotel, but the ferry to Ventotene was cancelled. I called the owner and apologized and although it was 6... More

The Agave & Ginestra was the most relaxing, beautiful and magical hotel experience I ever had. The lush gardens, panoramic water views, amazing food and best of all.. private hammock were beyond description. The staff was so warm and welcoming, always available and ready to assist in any way. I will remain forever grateful to the owner Philipo, who devoted... More

Ten days in Paradise! I went diving every day, led by the frequent and efficient hotel shuttle-a jeep given the roads. The hotel is facing the sea and they are working to rebuild the direct access to the sea, which I hope they will be able to do soon. Top class service, outstanding food, free WiFi everywhere. Another thing that... More

I have no words to describe how much I loved this hotel. From Arlene to Adalgisa to Gigi and Sergio the staff is brilliant. The food is outstanding (by the way, I am italian so my standards are very high) and the view from my room was incredible. A perfect place to relax, to unwind and to admire nature. Don't... More

We stayed at Agave & Ginestra twice, once in June for 3 days and we loved it so much that we returned in August for 3 more days.. It is a place that you need to slow down for, take time to breath, to smell, to wander around... Arlene will be your hostess, she IS so caring... She is always... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The structure, simple and elegant at the same time, the terraces made of Salerno ceramics, and the gardens on the sea cliff will invite you to abandon yourself to relaxation, to the quietness of the good old times, far from the crowed and protected by the stress. Slightly larger than a villa, surrounded by peace and simplicity, at easy reach, each room has its private bathroom, whereas the terraces allow to communicate and socialize. Islanders but not isolated, hydrofoils and ferry-boats make Ventotene an easily accessible destination. ... more   less
