“Second visit...same quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

After a gap of 7 years we stayed once again. Although perhaps some parts of the hotel needs updating the service provided by the family was first class. Half board was on special offer and each 4 course meal was different. The home cooking was fantastic although we had to google some of the menu items to see what was being cooked. We used the bus service again was was still cheap but less frequent than last time. Went to Negombo thermal park and this place is worth a visit. The hotel give vouchers for 3 euro discount. It all helps.

We loved our 6-day stay here! It is a family-owned and run hotel and they were absolutely wonderful! They made us feel as if we were part of the family.

The room was very clean. There was air conditioning and wireless internet. The daily breakfast was excellent with a good variety of both hot and cold food. The bed was reasonably comfortable (8 out of 10) and our room opened up onto a terrace with an amazing view of the sea and of Mt. Vesuvius. The showers varied...some days solid hot water, other days it changed between hot and cold and hot during the time I took a shower.

One of the things I liked most was that there was a drying rack on the terrace so we could rinse out and dry our swimwear every night. It's such a small thing, but it made a huge difference in our stay. Another thing that made a difference is that they offer a discount to the Thermal Spa that's within walking distance. We used that discount two different days.

The dinners were also very good and filling. The menu was fixed and changed nightly. We were able to have rabbit one evening, which is the main dish for which Ischia is known. It was very good.

It would be better to have a car, however the bus stop into town and around the island is only about 30 meters from the hotel. This made it very convenient to move around the island.

I would stay here again if in the area and I have already recommended it to others who may at some point in the future visit Ischia. Loved the hotel and loved the family!

Room Tip: Splurge for a sea view and ask for a terrace room.

The buildings may be a little dated, but it is well presented with beautiful gardens and the personnel were great - helpful and courteous. For what we paid the services incl. the pool, spa, breakfast etc were fantastic. It is on the road between casamicciola and ischia porto, and a reasonable but pleasant walk is required to reach either of the two. Buses run often however from nearby. Recommended.

Very good family-run hotel with warm atmosphere. You really feel like a guest at somebody’s home, not like in a hotel. Everybody is always ready to answer all your questions and recommend the best places in Ischia. You don’t need to address tourist agency, just ask at reception. Rooms are simple and cozy, very clean. Depending on the room type you can also have big terrace (shared with neighbor room) with sun-beds. But please pay attention that all sea-view rooms are overlooking the road that is near hotel. It is main Ischia road and quite noisy. Actually, you can hear traffic even in a room, though it is not so loud. Breakfast is very good – just ask for what you want in addition to what you see on the tables. Try dinner there: it consists of many tasty dishes and costs a little. I had dinner in the hotel five evenings from eight. I liked swimming-pool very much! It is in the inner yard near mandarin orange trees, with nice thermal water and comfortable temperature - such a pleasure when you stay in Ischia in April. As far as I travelled around the island during the day, I don’t know how many people are near the pool at the daytime. But before breakfast and before dinner there were just a few or nobody. If you travel by car, there is a parking near the hotel and you can easy reach Ischia porte, Casamicciola and Lacco Ameno. It is not comfortable to walk to these towns as you need to go along the main road. Bus stop is just a few steps from the hotel, great if you plan to discover the island using public transport (like I did). But buses in Ischia don’t go so often sometimes.
Summary. Good value for money. Great if you plan to travel around the island by car (or even by bus). Far from the beaches. Near the road.

Room Tip: Decide what you prefure: 1) sea-view with sunny terrace but traffic noise or 2) garden/pool view wit...

I am happy to have stayed here. The staff could not have been more friendly. I missed out on their restaurant because I came here in the off season.

This hotel really is a gem!! Our rooms all had a view of the sea. The staff was so wonderful! Warm and caring and so very helpful with recommendations for shopping, dining, sight-seeing. Most of them spoke English, but we still tried our Italian with them and they helped us with that, too! The rooms were spacious and comfortable and had air condtioning! Much needed in July! The hotel is in a great spot to walk to town or catch the bus to other ports. Loved it there!!! Thank you Franco and familia! And Erin and Marcello!!

A 3-star hotel with a thermal swimming pool?!? YES!!!! Amazing Hotel, the most genuine and kindest staff, fantastic and always different food (large quantities and real Italian taste!)...ths is really a hidden heaven in Ischia for the reasonable rates they require! Definitively one of the highest quality/price ratios hotels where I have been! After 7 days, I felt really part of the family and I was so sad to leave! but I will be back!

Room Tip: - ask for one with a nice view
