Spent 2 weeks at the Terme Mediterraneo hotel in September 2011 and had a really good time and relax.
You should visit Ischia island for admiring nature, being in the fresh air all day long, swimming in the warm sea, having a course of thermal bathing and going sightseeing… For all these TM hotel suits perfectly. It’s well located – reachable to the sea and the biggest thermal park (shuttle bus service directly from the hotel), not far from famous Sorgento bay with hot thermal springs on the beach (amazing!) and La Mortella botanic garden (beautiful – worth visiting!), convenient for going to Forio town by bus or taxi (15 min) from where you can have a boat to Capri or Naples…
The hotel itself has a good spacious territory (contrary to some other hotels nearby) – the main building and dependances are surrounded by an exotic park with different plants. So you feel yourself just like united with nature… I live in a semidetached house (villa block) and my window looks at “my own palm garden”… By the way – very quiet at night (important in order to have a good sleep!).
The hotel indeed is a “temple of Nature” – and the owner (Salvatore) and the staff really follow this idea. The pools are beautifully landscaped (2 – warmer and colder, clean), food in the restaurant is simple but very tasty and of good quality (vegetable buffet and sufficient main dish menu for dinner - 3 courses), rooms with wooden furniture…
I could repeat many things about accommodation in this hotel that you can read in other reviews here below but I believe it’s more important to underline that for experiencing Ischia and having “a nature holiday” in a good quite atmosphere TM is what you need.
Some details (maybe useful): many quests from Germany so the staff speak German well, but also English, some dependances are 10 min walk from the main building and the swimming pool (so make your choice about the room type when book), there are 2 food minimarkets and several gift shops in walk distance (convenient – don’t forget to buy Thermal water cosmetics – must try), some nice cafes and restaurants around; during my stay there were some little mosquitos at night (don’t forget to take a fumigator – I had and had no problems ).
And what I should add at the very end (especially for my Russian fellow-citizens) – certainly, Ischia hotels can’t be compared to “Turkish resort palaces all included” but you can find quite different and very nice things and impressions at this marvelous island!!!
