The hotel and environment is perfect Staff is very good. Super Kneipp walking. Flowers nad plants are so beautiful. Rooms with sea view are super.
Problem is with restaurant. In the morning there is still the same food. No change for week. In the evening you find very chilly restaurant. Sometime there is very loud music. The food is fresh. If you walk across the road be careful. No priority for walking people.

Galidon is a decent 3* hotel with two great thermal pools (indoor / outdoor) and very nice and polite staff - we had great interaction with reception / waiters / cleaners. Additionally, they provide free bus transfers to beach and Forio until the end of September. Moreover, the wifi was quite good and accessible in the rooms, which is something not to be taken for granted in Ischia.

So - why only 3*?
Food - the breakfast is modest and the lunches and dinners are hit and miss. You may get a very tasty juicy steak as well as rabbit's neck with 20 grams of meat on it - it is a complete lottery. The wine was of sub-standard quality.

The minimum standards are missing and even fresh bread is not guaranteed - fresh and old bread is mixed together so people end up touching the bread with their hands (!) to avoid picking the old pieces.

Absence of recycling and water served in plastic cups. It is pure laziness to use one-time plastic products instead of glass that can be washed.

Cleaning was good but the place smelled like a chemical factory afterwards - the cleaning stuff should go easier on the amount of detergents they spend on cleaning.

Moreover, it was not possible to open windows to get rid of the chemical smell because of very heavy smokers next door. This was extremely infuriating - one comes to this place to enjoy fresh air and health benefits and instead ends up inhaling other people's cigarette smoke.
If the hotel cared at all, they could have offered smoking / non-smoking sections but apparently they do not care enough about it.

Rooms extremely variable concerning location, size, views; some just looking into a backyard with four sqm as “terrace”. The spa can be adjusted by the temperature from hot to warm. WIFI available in the reception. nice area round the pool, reserving sunbeds with towels is not allowed. Use of bathing caps in the pool is mandatory, but not monitored. Breakfast according to the three stars. The steam bath is an unique room with a hole in the floor, with volcanic steam coming out of it

If you visit the beautiful isle of Ischia, stay elsewhere! Location - too far from the harbour, the town of Forio and all the restaurants and cafes. They have a hotel minibus but when you ask for a lift, they arrange a taxi as the courtesy vehicle is never available. Food served in the restaurant is mediocre at best with regimented meal times but all the waiters and bar staff are friendly. However the worst feature of this hotel is the lack of courtesy and poor service offered by reception staff. No matter how politely guests ask for help and advice, they are incapable of a smile and make no effort to be of assistance. There is a bar at the pool side but it is never open. They advertise a terrazza restaurant which is actually a roof without any tables or chairs. The bar area is in reception without comfortable seating to relax in the evening. The spa facilities and massage area is only open in the morning and the staff do not provide a very professional service. A group of us stayed for 8 nights and in that short time, we were aware of the lift breaking down 4 times. Access to and from our rooms was via an uneven stairway which went outside of the building so we relied on the lift and found this very inconvenient. No-one apologized when the lift was out of order. We stayed at this hotel because a chess tournament was hosted there and a few members of our group played chess. None of us would consider taking part in the tournament again if it was held in the same hotel. The playing facilities were inadequate and the hotel refused to make any concession to chess players when a request was made to check out later than 10.00 as the last games were played at 09.00 and were unlikely to finish before lunchtime. Despite extreme dissatisfaction with the Hotel Terme Galidon, we enjoyed our stay on the Isle of Ischia and would recommend a holiday in Forio - as far away from this hotel as possible.

I have just returned from a family holiday at the Hotel Galidon. It was fantastic! The hotel and staff are great and the food is fresh, local and superb. The atmosphere is very relaxed, friendly and family oriented. We all particularly enjoyed the outdoor thermal pool where we were looked after by the one and only Tule who makes the best coffee in Ischia as well as the most amazing Bruschetta with sweet juicy tomatoes and locally sourced Mozzarella and home grown Basil! We will definitely be going back!!!

We couldn't even last one night at this hotel. On arrival we walked into a room which looked like a residential care home. The toilet and shower was filthy. The one thing that was nice was the balcony which had seating but was facing the outdoor pool. The bed was old and you could hear the individual springs squeaking. The pillows were low and uncomfortable. The staff member that booked us in was rude, she didn't help us with the sea view that the agency told us was booked and insisted that we needed to pay extra. We were told to hand over our passports but wasn't told what it was for and even had to ask for them to be returned. In the end we booked another hotel on the mainland and cut our visit to ischia short.

The hotel is located near a bus stop. The double room where I slept was quite big with air conditioning. The room had a balcony. The hotel has 3 swimming pools: the big one is thermal and quite hot; there is another small pool with external temperature.The terrace is nice and panoramic. There is also a free minibus to Citara e Forio five times a day.

Far from the beach, they offer a few transfers per day though. The food is OK sometimes, we were in half board and we were supposed to have non alcoholic drinks for free, but every time we asked for something, they looked at us like if we were begging for it... they dont knock the door when cleaning the room.. The swimming pool is useless if you are not looking for any special treatment (therm warm) , is just to hot for a normal swim. Limited English. I would say is ideal for retired people, but even them were complaining...

Во время нашего пребывания русско говорящего персонала на рисепшене замечено не было. Пару раз уборщица, вероятно украинка, на территории здоровалась с нами по-русски. В остальном объяснялись на английском или немецком.Рядом с отелем в небольшом магазине косметики руссковорящая продавец. От неё в первый день мы получили массу полезной информации.

Добрый день! Мы жили в отдельном бунгало, вид из окна упирался в стену, заросшую зеленью. Зато был свой дворик с шезлонгами и тенистая терраска. В главном корпусе, где ресепшн, окна в основном с видом на море и балконы, а во втором корпусе, как придется... В отеле был гид Киара +393388923322 Но мы гуляли и разъезжали самостоятельно
