Me, my girlfriend and 2 friends wanted to visit Ischia to go 'Talented Mr Ripley' scene spotting (the films early scenes were filmed there) By luck we chose the Mare Blu which is positioned on the beach where most of the scenes were set. Ischia old town is like stepping back 50 years in time, It is wonderful. The hotel is really great with its own free beach with excelllent views of the Castello Aragonese. the beach is safe, the water clear and warm.
The hotel has a spa water pool which is therapeutic with jacuzzi jets. Massages are available. the swimming pool and solarium, though small is well set out with intimate areas of shade.
the rooms are comfortable, tastefully decorated and the views ot the coastline breathtaking.
the hotel is a really pleasant short walk to the towns main shopping and the castle.
There is a brilliant restaurante 200 yards away (the O Sole Mio) on the beach with wonderful views great staff and reasonably priced.
but the best thing about the Mare Blu is their staff, ever single one of them from the reception staff to the cleaners is friendly, helpful and accomodating.
The 2 I remember best are Pepe and Filippo who were absolutely fantastic, both were charming and helpful. Pepe went out of his way to help us and left a really indelible impression with us. I CANT WAIT TO GO BACK and neither can any of our group.
