The 4 star Hotel Continental Terme is about a 25 minute walk from Ischia Porto along the busy Via Michele Mazzella, which can be rather chaotic at peak times. The hotel has two outdoor pools and one indoor pool, together with various spa treatments. The rooms are reasonable but nothing special and lacked the things you would expect in a 4 star hotel such as tea-making facilities, make-up mirror etc - admittedly trivial but nevertheless expected. The entertainment is central to the hotel complex so it’s best to get a room furthest away, if you want to sleep before midnight.
The restaurant dinners were acceptable but in our opinion were along way short of other Italian hotels we have stayed in. All our food for the entire stay was edible but poorly presented and barely warm due to it being served from the waiters trolley at your table. We chose to eat out on several nights depending on the menu rotation. We also had the choice to ‘exchange’ dinner for a buffet lunch but this was only when a conference was held at the hotel. Talking of which the conference delegates virtually took over the hotel like a plague of locusts with the holiday guests being a minority. We felt like we were back at work with all the tablet PC’s and mobile phones and spent most days away from the hotel, such a shame. Buffet breakfast was standard fare with no apparent option for hot food, the nearest being toasted bread.
In our opinion the Continental Terme is more like a 3 star hotel - we were disappointed with the food, invasive conferences and dull atmosphere.
Overall the hotel is OK for a short stay but is most definitely not a holiday hotel, we are unlikely to return.
