“Una perla nel cuore di Ischia-A pearl in the heart of Ischia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

Appena rientrati da un angolo di paradiso, non potevamo fare altro che condividere la nostra esperienza con voi. Vivendo nel Regno Unito, quest'anno io ed il mio ragazzo abbiamo deciso di riscoprire la nostra splendida terra, l'Italia, prendendoci una pausa dal caos cittadino. La nostra scelta è caduta, dietro consiglio di alcuni amici,sulla piccola isola d'Ischia, quindi sull'Hoteal Ideal a Forio. E non possiamo che dire a ragione.
La posizione è perfetta per chi, come noi, ama il mare, a soli 5 min a piedi; ma non mancano una splendida piscina con idromassaggio ed una più piccola di acqua termale per i più pigri o per un pò di relax serale prima di cena. Immersi nel verde di un meraviglioso giardino, tra ulivi, palme e fiori, ci si può godere anche una torrida giornata estiva.
Il personale è eccezionale, accogliente, sorridente, molto attento ad ogni bisogno del cliente. Il cibo è ottimo, fatto di ingredienti freschi e piatti particolari: a colazione torte e marmellate fatte in casa ed ogni cena diversa dalle altre.
Tutto molto curato e pulito, arredato con gusto e calore.
Ci siamo sentiti proprio a casa, con un trattamento a 5 stelle, al tempo stesso.
Grazie Sig.ra Monte, Paola, Lena, Franco, Salvatore e tutti gli altri per averci regalato una vacanza "Ideale"!

We have just come back from a corner of Paradise and we couldn't help but share our experience with you. Living in the UK, me and my partner decided to take a break from the chaotic city life and rediscover our marvelous Country, Italy. Having been advised by some friends,our choice went to the small Island of Ischia,hence to the Ideal Hotel in Forio. And we can do nothing but agree.
The position is perfect for those who, as we do, love the seaside, which is 5 min away on foot; but for the lazy ones or for a relaxing time in the evening before dinner, there's no lack of a wonderful pool with hydromassage and a small thermal one. Lying in the deep green of an amazing garden, among olive trees, palms and flowers, you can enjoy even a torrid summer day.
Staff is outstanding, warm, smiling, attentive to every guest needs. The food is excellent, made of fresh ingredients and particular dishes: homemade jams and pies for breakfast, each dinner different from the other.
Everything very clean and accurate, great care and taste in the choice of furnishings, cosy atmosphere.
We felt like being at home but with a 5 stars treatment at the same time!
Thanks to Ms Monte, Paola, Lena, Franco, Salvatore and all the others for having given the "Ideal" Holiday to us!

This is our 5th visit in the last 6 years and as always the hospitality of Sig.ra Monte & daughter Paola is exceptional. One year we did stay to 4 start hotel near by and it was a mistake. Hotel Ideal although small is perfectly formed.It is in a quite location, great pool, very clean, has is own parking and the service provided is always with a smile.If you are taking a rest from visiting other parts of the beautiful island, the lunch menu is really nice and ingridient really fresh.. Thank you again Sig.ra Monmte, Paola, Lena, Franco e Salvatori. Ci vediamo il prossimo anno. Bacioni da Clara & David da Peterborough, Cambs, UK

It's is a small hotel (25 rooms), beautifully designed inside and out. It has two pools with fresh and thermal water and hydro massage. Located on a quiet side street away from traffic and crowds. A public beach is 5min walk away, a bus stop in 200m, and you can walk about 15-20min to Forio town center. Air conditioner was centrally operated and worked 2pm-5am. Food was good; we preferred to eat breakfast and lunch in the hotel, and went to Forio restaurants for dinner. Guests were mostly couples.
