We recently stayed at the Aragona Palace Hotel in Ischia and cannot praise it enough. The hotel offered unbeatable value with outstanding customer care from all the staff. The hotel is ideally situated close to the port and only a short walk to the designer shops and local bars/cafes.
We had a room on the third floor overlooking the port, west facing, so beautiful sun in the afternoon & evening. The hotel was spotlessly clean, the room was spacious and the bathroom well equipped with bath robes. slippers and a range of necessities.
We stayed half board so had the set menu for dinner, the menu was varied (written in English if required) and the standard of food was very high and compared favourably with the more expensive "5* Grand Hotels" on the Island (I speak from experience)!
The Hotel has a very nice sun bathing area on the roof of the Hotel with a small, but adequate swimming pool. The pool side bar provides drinks and snacks which can be ordered on the bar telephone, the meals are competitively priced and in some cases are cheaper that the local snack bars.
The Spa pool is very impressive offering a wide range of treatments, the staff were knowledgeable and very attentive.
To summarise, the hotel management should be commended on their professionalism, which made the holiday extremely enjoyable.
