Our family of four including two young adult boys took two rooms for six nights and had absolutely perfect stay. Service was exceptional in every way - reception, concierge, breakfast service, pool and spa service, to the landscaping crew! This is a beautiful property that is impeccably run by the owner/manager who always seems to be around to check on... More

My wife and I visited this beautiful Hotel 3 times. The Staff is highly professional. The restaurant serves the finest Food anywhere. We were there in the years 2000, 2002 and 2003. Our good Friend Guseppi Bono picked us up at the Naples Airport, took the Ferrty to Ischia and arrived 55 minutes later. He also took us to the... More

Went here for the last weekend of the season. It was fairly quiet, which was nice - not that warm, but we had the pool to ourselves! The service, the welcome and the warmth of the staff were outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble, and the staff all seemed very happy to be working there and to enjoy their jobs.... More

We had an unforgettable stay at this gorgeous hotel. Very classy and elegant, but also down to earth and friendly service. This is a family owned and run hotel, which definitely shows. Our room, which was a top floor suite with a HUGE terrace with stunning sea view, could not have been any more magical. Definitely a highlight and we... More

Very close to the port, the Grand Hotel Excelsior was a wonderful reprieve. We booked this while staying in Naples, and we weren't disappointed. The hotel is large and beautiful, as well as spotlessly clean. The included breakfast is large and suits all tastes. At night, stroll down the street and pop into the stores and cafes.

Do you ever imagine yourself in a glamorous Hollywood film set in Italy in the 1950s? If so then you need Ischia and Hotel Excelsior. The island is a living postcard of lush volcanic hillsides and multi-coloured villages tumbling into the sea. The Excelsior is set in its own gorgeous gardens, with a super luxe Roman-style thermal spa and private... More

We enjoyed our visit to this wonderful hotel, having had some worries about the quality and value of Italian hotels in the past. We were very pleasantly surprised by how improved things are in Italy if this hotel is anything to go by. It is immaculately clean and beautifully presented with characterful touches and modern facilities plus wonderful gardens, bar... More

My two young children and I recently stayed at the GHE for almost a week. The resort is immaculate, well appointed, and beautiful. Aside from the beautiful pool and beach, the room and bathroom were spacious and cleaned twice a day. The staff helped us organize a private boat excursion and happily accommodated our every need. We also enjoyed spa... More
