We have just returned from five days at the Grifo Hotel and would love to still be there! The staff there treated us with the best of care and really made us feel at home. As it's out of the main town it has a lovely quiet feel and is perfect for relaxing. The pool has plenty of space to sunbathe and the spa downstairs was even nicer than we expected - well worth spending a few hours there and splashing out on a massage. We ate breakfast every morning in the hotel and had lunch there a few times as well - the food and service was always wonderful. The shuttle is a great service and we used it every evening - perfect to explore Ischia port. We took the public bus back to the hotel every evening and walked up from there which is a good option if you think you'll stay out later than the last hotel shuttle. All in all we couldn't recommend the Grifo Hotel enough.
