I had a lovely stay. The staff was not rude, as warned by some previous foreign guests. This is a small island left back in time and not internationally sophisticated. The apparent carelessness and rudeness is more a reflection of shyness. Speaking in Italian I always had great responses. The location is easy (although without views), right in town but... More

Ponza is a lovely but simple island. No luxury hotels, restaurants or boutiques which is actually quite charming. The "Gran Hotel Santa Domitilla" is one of the two "upscale" hotels on the island.  Its decor and charm are very 80s.  Rooms are tiny; our room was approx 10 sqm which is completely ridiculous - we could hardly walk around the bed....

It is the best place in Ponza. The design, decor is siimple, authentic, Italian, with small and unique details. The rooms are comfortable and offer all the amenities that one might need on holidays. The restaurant is beyond what you would expect. The menu is traditional but with a special twist to every single dish. The food served is incredibly... More

I use to spend 100 nights or so in 5* hotels and I have to say that I was positively impressed by this hotel. The location is superb as it's 5 mins walk from the centre but not so central to be crowded and noisy. The hotel is very close to small shops where you can get water and some... More

I'm writing this review in a global point of view so maybe it's skewed, but I paid more than 1100 dollars for three nights only for the room, and it was only to the standard of an hotel room which should cost only 100 dollars a night. It was probably very expensive due to the high season and exchange rate,... More

The food at this hotel was amazing, but the room was a bit small for my taste. The pool area was nice and quiet. Overall a good experience. It was a relaxing and quiet accomodation, just the room was a bit small.

Our friends recommended to visit Ponza a long time ago. After traveling across Pontinia,Sabaudia,Terracina we finally arrived at this Wonderful Island. Taxi drivers advised to call our hotel and ask for a pick up service. The hotel was not far but we were very tired getting up extremely early and did not want to walk with the suitcases. The Receptionist... More

As an American living in Rome, I had always heard how lovely Ponza is. Undoubtedly, my stay at the Grande Hotel Santa Domitilla further enhanced my recent visit. This hotel is beautiful, convenient, and very special. Upon my arrival, I was greeted by the lovely manager Ugo, who helped make our stay extra special. Not only did he offer many... More

We stayed for a long weekend in June with our two children (2 and 5). The hotel is hidden away but still just a shot walk from the center. We had an excellent time. The staff is very friendly and always helpful. As we left, our daughter left behind the "Bambolotto", and we only discovered when we were back in... More

Santa Domitilla Hotel does not offer a brethtaking view on the bay, as other hotels in Ponza, but the quality standards of both common spaces and rooms are at a very high level, as far as the srtandards of Ponza are concerned. The entrance alley together with the gardens around the buildings give a touch of nature and freshness to... More
