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

Stayed for a long weekend, restaurants great, pools perfect ,cocktails and vibe really enjoyable. Night life and restaurants in village are cool and the seas around the islands are amazing. We will definately return as hotel &Ponza is a magical place.

The hotel seems secluded even though it's right in the centre of Ponza with busy streets either side. The grounds are small but tastefully planted and maintained, with driftwood sculptures and garden chairs. It's only 10 minutes' walk from the ferry terminal but they run a shuttle to and from it, which is convenient if you have heavy luggage or... More

The Grand Hotel Santa Domitilla is truly a gem of a hotel with a fabulous spa and gorgeous grounds. If you are looking for a classy retreat with the amenities to go with it - look no further. Santa Domitilla is the only hotel on the island of Ponza that offers, two pools, A/C and cable TV in your room,... More

I spent three days at the hotel with my wife and two small children. The hotel has a very nice architecture that suites the island and has a nice garden and pool (too deep though for small children). The breakfast is ok but rather limited (only one type of cheese). What we really did not like were the rooms and... More
