My family moved to this hotel from another one in Ischia and we found it to be an ideal setting: the property and pool area is large enough to spend the whole day there sunbathing / swimming and then in the afternoons you can take a walk to the centre, which is less than 5 minutes away. The pool is... More

Returned to this wonderful hotel after a gap of four years to find it as good as ever. Little has changed except for new sunbeds and the plants in the immaculate gardens growing bigger. Everything from on line booking and arranging transfers was done with great care and efficiency.We even got our favourite room as requested. The staff,many of whom... More

We stayed at the Excelsior for my daughters wedding in Ischia. The service, accommodation and location could not have been better. We had 32 people from our group at this hotel and without exception it was a 5 star experience. The hotel staff could not have been more helpful and kind. From lost luggage, restaurant recommendations and arranging water taxi's,... More

A really cosy hotel. Very good restaurant with a brilliant cheff. All the staff is very proffecional and friendly. Very green. Beautiful garden. If you plan to swim in the sea - this hotel is not for you. The sea beach is tiny and not too nice. The SPA is not worth the money. The don't really know how to... More

This is without doubt and outstanding hotel on a beautiful island. The hotel was stunning and the service and food excellent. The short walk through the gardens to the beach was about 1 minute and unlike many hotels there were plenty of space and sun lounges. Drinks on the terrace were very relaxing and the hotel is a short walk... More

We are a couple in our fifties. This was our first visit to Ischia. We loved the place. The hotel was probably the best on the island. Our room had a balcony but overlooked the gardens rather than the coast. It was not a problem though as we spent to little time in our room. The pool was ideally located... More

We spent part of our honeymoon at this hotel and it was not what we expected. The first week of our honeymoon was spent in the Grand Vittoria Excelsior in Sorrento which was a truley 5 star hotel in every sense of the term. However, both the hotel and Ischia itself resulted in an awful shock for our second week.... More

We enjoyed our honeymoon at the Grand in September and found it a classy place, although somewhat expensive. Maybe it's the island life, but the hotel we came from on the Mainland (Bellevue Syrene in Sorrento) was equally, if not more impressive for half the price. What you do get for your money is a quiet hotel in a prime... More

We found the rooms extremely good and the service excellent and personal. Were the dinner menu wider and published outside of the restaurant we would rate the hotel excellent. The location is also convenient and all together we are very much looking forward to returning to the hotel this year.
