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

This was such a wonderful experience. A unique place. The staff was very helpful, the location was perfect and the pools were amazing! One pool for the sun worshiper and the heated pools in the caves for me!!! Breakfast in the gardens was peaceful and relaxing. I recommend this hotel highly!

Beautiful rooms, excellent service, awesome pool and beautiful gardens. Close to everything with an amazing view. Couldn't have been better spent three nights here. Only regret was that it wasn't a longer stay. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

This hotel is a short walk from the port of Ponza. If you want something centrally located to the boats, ferries, rental bikes and stores this is it...less than a five minute walk. The hotel offers standard rooms...nothing special but not cramped. Our room had a balcony that offered a view of the pool and grounds. I would definitely ask... More

We have a week in this nice hotel centrally located in town and nevertheless quiet. An extremely friendly staff, great breakfast in the pretty garden, which offers shady places to rest, but no view of the sea. The cuisine was quite good, the rooms comfortable and clean, but too small. At sunset the modish aperitif is by the pool with... More

The hotel is very well located close to the main port and within short walking distance (this is not the case for the Chaia di Luna, the main competitor to the Santa Domitilla, which is quite a bit further away). The rooms are quite small and often not particularly well designed (no window in our bedroom for instance), but comfortable... More

Then there is the prestigious restaurant and wine bar, “Il Melograno”, that offers gastronomic delights in wisteria draped bowers. ... more   less
