“The best luxury hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2014

I have stayed at a number of first-class hotels in Italy. This was clearly the best! Superb comfort, wonderful spa, heated sea water pool. A stellar restaurant... not cheap, but superb value for money. We appreciated the special series of gourmet meals... truly world-class haute cuisine. Above all, it was the helpful friendly staff who made our stay a truly wonderful and unforgettable experience. I wish we had hotels this wonderful in North America!

Room Tip: Ask for sea view if possible, though the garden view is not bad

The hotel has a superb view of the sea and quiet surroundings. Perfectly located in a town where you can still walk around safely without having to deal with cars. There are little shops not far from the hotel to check out on your walks. Felt very safe and your privacy respected. Staff are very helpful and courteous. Everyone acknowledge me with a smile. The service is excellent and the room decor that retains the Italian elegance compliments the grand view. The hotel services is superb with a breakfast room that will truly make you enjoy the fabulous buffet and the view! The private cove helps you enjoy the sun and the sea in a very relaxing way.

Truly had a memorable experience which I will never forget.

My wife and I just returned from a 5 day stay at this beautiful hotel overlooking the Bay of Naples in celebration of an important birthday. This is a first class experience and the hotel staff went out of their way to make our stay memorable. We had a superior sea view room with a small balcony overlooking the hotel pool. The service is top notch as are the delicious breakfasts and dinners. The wait staff is fluent in English at this mostly German and Italian guest retreat. We did not experience the spa facilities because the weather was too enjoyable to be indoors. The only downside is that there is not much to do outside of the hotel and the surrounding restaurants are just average without taking a taxi ride elsewhere. This is a seaside resort with a very laid back feeling so relaxing and stress relieving are the order of the day. This was our second visit and I am sure we will return. Kudos to the hotel manager Davide Maestripieri, to Carmen for her helpful advice and to maitre d' Enzo who made every evening meal enjoyable.

Room Tip: A must is a room with a sea view in the main hotel building. Room 345 is highly recommended.

This hotel is a real institution of Ischia, hosting aristocratic italian families for their summer break and discreet clients, who are used to come here every year. Quiet and elegant atmosphere.
Superb location facing the bay of Lacco Ameno, with direct access to the sea (private cove) and nice sea water swimming pool.
The decor remains unchanged since the fifties (beautiful old furniture and "dolce vita" decor which is now very fashionable) with an up-to-date comfort.
A special mention for the quality of the service: top notch staff at the pool, restaurant, reception and remarkable concierge.
Food is very good and the lunch buffet near the pool is absolutely perfect (more stuffy atmosphere at the dining room for dinner). Excellent breakfast.
Rooms are all renovated, extremely comfortable with excellent bathrooms and views for those facing the sea.
Excellent spa facilities and private thermal house.

Room Tip: Top floors rooms have a beautiful view and are more quiet. The Royal Sporting wing is the best .

Really lovely hotel in a beautiful small town. Good central location within easy walking distance from all the shops and restaurants. Also easy base to visit other places on the island. The hotel is very well maintained and we had a superior sea view room which was lovely with a small balcony, table and chairs and nice view of the harbour. the food at the hotel is good, the staff are friendly especially the pool attendants who are the best we have ever experienced. Would recommend this hotel and location. We visited Ischia Port and whilst lovely, a bit too busy for us but Lacco Amena is perfect although you may have to venture to other villages for restaurant options if you stay for more than a week.

Definitely the ideal hotel in Lacco Amena with a superb waterside location, outstanding views from most rooms and all dining areas. The grandness of the many sitting rooms and bar areas remind one of olden days with a reasonable upgraded appearance and overall 'feel' to the place. Staff attentive and knowledgeable and good in many languages. We were very fortunate in our room location and had a massive balcony private to us only. Vistas were beyond amazing. Indaco gourmet restaurant on site which is superb. Main dining of high quality although less attentive staff but within normal expectations for Italy. The pools include outside and inside spa thermals etc. Definitely superior location for walking the beachside shops and local food joints. Air conditioning is not good on the negative side, and one has to expect older style Italian style, but overall this is the best choice in the area and close to travel to other Island spots which have amazing vistas and beaches given most Italian beaches are rocky - not here!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
“L’Albergo della Regina Isabella” is located directly on the seashore, in the midst of a peaceful bay surrounded by rocky shores and luscious Mediterranean vegetation. The hotel is located in the township of Lacco Ameno in Ischia, the largest Neapolitan island in the Gulf of Naples. It was built in the 1950’s by Angelo Rizzoli. The island’s beauty and thermal baths captivated the illustrious publisher and film director. In 1956 he decided to enlarge historic Regina Isabella’s thermal baths and build a resort over the ancient Greek - Roman ruins. After just a few years, Ischia and “L’Albergo della Regina Isabella” became the centre of attraction for cosmopolitan worldliness. Celebrities such as Richard Burton, Liz Taylor, Maria Callas, Alberto Sordi and William Holden enlivened those popular years making it one of the most exclusive and glamorous destinations. ... more   less
