The setting of this hotel is spectacular. The views from the deluxe (worth paying upgrade) is stunning. Although pool is small it's perfect to cool off in. Walk into town is about 15 -20 minutes but not to difficult, but hilly. Possibly not the best for kids. Staff helpful. Would recommend this great little hotel

Ferried over to Ischia for a Saturday night stay. Reservations on booking.com for $109 and checked reviews in Trip Advisor which all mentioned views. Trip Advisor lists AC as a feature. Staff showed us our unit which was a one bedroom apartment with a kitchen and living room separate from the bedroom. It was a mix of old furniture and not very appealing. I had booked a room and didn’t choose an apartment. It was a very hot day -90 degree, so I asked where to turn on the AC. I was told no AC and that I didn’t book a room with AC. I said I had seen AC listed. The very nice woman said there were ventilators if we were hot. There were 2 fans, one in each room that were absolutely necessary or we wouldn’t have been able to sleep in that heat and humidity. We decided to make the best of it because we didn’t think we had any other options. I’m guessing if there was a room with AC available, it would have been offered. No other reviews mentioned lack of AC, and the apartment was separate from other rooms. There is a deck with gorgeous view, a small pool and gardens with bright flowers. The view from the patio of the apartment of the castle was perfect. If the unit had AC this would have been a 5 star stay for view, beach club and staff. The staff at desk are helpful and the short walk downstairs to the water was convenient in the heat. Tips: confirm AC room in summer! Skip the apartment if offered, and get any room with AC because hot space is too hot to enjoy the view. If it’s a crowded weekend, go to the beach club early or have the hotel call to check on space. The beach club is called Gardenia Mare with a restaurant the hotel is affiliated with. The hotel called to see if they had space but they didn’t answer so we walked to check for space. Even though it was later on a Saturday afternoon, they did have a few chair and umbrellas available for $16. Families were swimming and enjoying the sea. It was clean and refreshing. Kayaks were available for rent too. The restaurant at the club was closing for sit down but salad and sandwiches were available and yummy. Service was good. Reservations for dinner were available too. Separate review of that gem. If weather is nice the lack of AC might not be an issue. The taxi driver explained that Ischia hotels close after October until April and the rate we paid is considered a normal rate. There are several areas with much more expensive rates. Plan to pay $20 each way from Port if Ischia for taxi during summer rather than waiting for a bus in the heat, it’s worth it.

We visited Don Felipe one evening for a Limoncello Spritz. The barman / receptionist had Limoncello and he had soda and Prosecco. We thought, great. Let’s get mixing. Eagerly awaiting the lemony cocktail, the barman explained that mixing the two ingredients was not possible. My girlfriend and I looked at each other in confusion. Maybe something was just lost through translation. We tried again. After a 5 minute conversation, it appeared that mixing the two ingredients was just an impossible feat. We could have each component individually, but not combined. Struggling to contain our laughter / confusion, we swiftly exited, only to have a Limoncello Spritz in the hotel next door. Sort it out Don Felipe 😂

dear Mr. C, unfortunately the night staff is not used to serving cocktails, and we apologize if they did not understand your requests. We are surprised, on the other hand, that you can judge the entire structure by not even being our guest. our family-run establishment has been working for two generations to guarantee a warm welcome and well-being to its guests and you have not given us this opportunity, since you were staying in another hotel. I hope, however, that Ischia liked it and that she'll be back soon, maybe I'll prepare the next cocktail for me as bartenders and sommeliers.

Honestly, the best hotel I have ever stayed in. The island of Ischia itself is gorgeous, nature, flowers, sea and hills everywhere. Even before we arrived, the staff was very flexible with our check in, as we could only arrive at around 10 PM, and it was no problem for them. The location is perfect: very calm, silent neighbourhood but you can easily reach the port and the city, the bus stops right in front of the hotel and the taxi is also quite affordable. There are plenty of beaches within 3 minutes of walking distance, and the staff is very helpful with choosing and reserving a beach. The room was very spacious and clean, we had one with the view on the sea and it was unbelievably gorgeous. The Castello Aragonese can be seen perfectly and it provided a gorgous view from our huge balcony. The breakfast is also very good, plenty of options to choose from. There are also many places to relax and sunbathe, the pool is the highlight of the hotel with the amazing view. All in all, we fell in love with the island and with the hotel as well, I can’t wait to be back one day!
