“Paradise-island”
Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

I'm in Solemar Hotel for 2 weeks and I enjoy the atmosphere that is here, in generally at ischia. I'm having a wonderful experience!!!
In a few days I received a lot of interesting information and I tried new pleasant sensation. I didn't think that I stay here so well... I would like to thank the staff of the hotel restaurant their smile gave me all the warmth of
Ischia. Thanks in part to Diana that speaking in Russian made me feel at home. I recommend Solemar Hotel for the
"gourmand" it is the ideal place for a good plate. Thank for unforgettable moments . A hug to Maître and Director . At the next summer.

I read previous reviews and booked my room knowing it was not what Americans consider 4 or 5 star accomodations, however:
cons:
-the ants all over the room- including the bed and shower stall-- were a bit much
-the dead squashed bugs on the ceiling and pictures were pretty gross
-the mold/mildew in the shower stall was pretty nasty
-the strong smell of urine on the toilet wrapped in "disinfected tape" was fairly repulsive
-5 euros for a mandatory bathing cap to enter the pool is absurd (wasnt aware of that one-my bad)
-it has a pretty small beach where you MUST wake up early to get a chair and if you get a good spot be prepared to get sized up by the frequent families who vacation here (not such a welcoming environemnt)

pros:
-The location is great (right off the main strip and an easy walk from the ferry)
-The food at the small beach restaurant is pretty good.
-The staff was pleasant

Ive been to quite a few places, gone on many vacations, stayed at quite a few hotels. For the price I paid to stay here, it was absolutely not worth it (sad to say, I had high expectations for this part of my Italian Vacation and I was absolutely disappointed.)

Room Tip: If you get a partial ocean view, you are located just over the pool facing other residences, dont l...

Just back from 7 nights holiday, this was a relaxing holiday in a fantastic area. The hotel is clean and well looked after, it has good facilities for its price range...we went to Aphrodite Hills in Cyprus and the hotel and spa are superior but are priced accordingly. This a very good value for money hotel where the staff are very good; learn basic Italian before you go though as Italian and German are the main languages used. There is plenty of shopping and restaurants in Ischia Port...the food is fantastic and the beach is ok, did not see any night clubs....but did not look too hard.
2 points against....poor showers with no room and poor water pressure and no sky tv with all local channels in Italian and German.

Room Tip: get sea view

This hotel is amazingly located but the services, the look, the food and the room facilities are not at 4* level, even though you pay for so.
The food is ok and varied but it's quite industrial. The room facilities are outdated. The service is ok but they try to charge you for every small thing, e.g. a swimming cap costs €5.
We had a lovely stay I recommend this hotel for its location and for those who don't look for a 4* hotel.

Well, where do you start. Ischia is a small island off the Bay of Naples.

Transfers from the Airport - Ischia taxi companies will charge 200 euros one way for an escorted transfer - - take note : Come out of the airport, and straight outside is a bus that will take you to the bus terminal for 3 Euros each (children free), on arrival at the port, buy your ticket (49 euros approx for 2 x ads and 2 x children) .... when you get off the boat at Ischia this hotel is a 10 minute walk. We were unsure where it was, however be careful - the taxi driver charged us 15 euros for no more than a 5 minute journey navigating the "long way" - hence we walked back ! !

The hotel. The hotel is in a great location, however luckily we had paid for a sea view, the view over the pool to the sea is absolutely fantastic. We were in Room 205 which is directly over the pool and was a family room of a good proportion. The air conditioning stopped working and they promised a fix the next day, however it was another day before resolution .

Meals - we were half board. THe breakfast is adequate, truly continental. Evening meal has to be ordered at breakfast time and is of a mixed standard - very strange combinations of dishes and especially what they put with it !

Pool- is relatively small compared to others we've seen in other parts of Italy, however was clean. There are hardly any sun beds and as such Italians seem to secure them at an unearthly hour and use them for 5 minutes during the day ! Sun beds on the beach are chargeable at 7 euros each so be careful as the cost adds up

We visited this hotel in August when many Italians holiday. The majority of people in the hotel at this time were older Italians that sat at the pool edge and didn't want kids to play. . so long as you bring yourselves to ignore the minority that clearly didn't want you there you get by !

overall, this hotel is of a good standard, but as with many European hotels it's a good 3 star ... the only thing that the hotel provides that we think deserves the 4 star rating is the waiter service at dinner.

Ischia itself is lovely, but exceeding expensive. 4.50 Euros for a beer is excessive compared to mainland Italy. There is a really good shopping street in Ischia town, however can be a little monotonous after a while ! Little night life exists here as the evenings are spent sauntering up and down the streets

A great experience, mmmmm 11 nights was adequate - would we return ? The hotel is good, but not exceptional and once been to Ischia you'd have to really fall in love with it to go back.

This should have been such a relaxing holiday. The location of the Solemar Terme is excellent. It is close to the port for a wide variety of boat trips, just a short walk from the main street with endless small shops ideal for an evening stroll, a ten minute walk away from the bus terminus where you could catch a bus to anywhere on the island and right on the beach for days when you want to swim and relax.
The hotel is clean, the rooms are clean and of a fair size and the food is excellent, although it is advisable to go into the evening meal fairly promptly as those guests who preferred to eat a little later often found that the dessert had run out.
Unfortunately several niggles built up to spoil what should have been a lovely holiday.
We had booked a room with a terrace or balcony. We didn't expect a sea view as we hadn't paid a supplement but found that our balcony was a small 'juliet' style bacony which we were not able to sit out on.
The pool is clean but unfortunately it is often invaded by local children who come up the steps from the beach and into the hotel grounds. Although the management eventually come out and deal with the invaders it often fell to the guests to summon management. We felt that our privacy was invaded and didn't feel that we could leave any belongings by the pool.
Before booking it would be very wise to check whether or not your holiday company includes sun bed charges. We had booked with Thomas Cook and, along with other guests who had booked with Citalia ,understood that sunbeds by the pool were free but sunbeds on the beach were payable locally. We were shocked to find that we were expected to pay 7euros per day per person for sunbeds by the pool. We refused to sign anything but other guests who signed were charged the full amount.
Do also check your final bill. We weren't too surprised to find items that we hadn't signed for ( this can happen anywhere) but we were very shocked to find that we had been charged 4euros each for limoncellos that we had been served at the gala and buffet evenings. We were staggered as these had been served to our table, on one evening during the main course. We had not requested these drinks and did not sign for them, we understood them to be entirely complimentary.

Stayed a week in the Hotel Solemar Terme in July. It was HOT...We booked through Thomas Cook with Citalia. To really enjoy this place you need to speak Italian. Not much English spoken, and keep an eye on your bill. We were charged for using the beach (72 Euros/room) even though we opted for the Spa, which included the beach charge. This is fine, but our Citalia was supposed to include the beach charge. Also, we paid for Beach View rooms, but were put into rooms 402 & 404. These rooms are on the back side of the hotel and warmed by the sun 10 hours per day. The air conditioners did not work, and we had to go outside to cool down. After 3 days, we were moved to the rooms we should have been in. After that, it was great. What a difference. The beach is on the hotel's door step, but crowded with beach umbrellas and deck chairs. It was hot, but crowded. The food on the beach was great. The best part of the whole experience was the dining room. We were on half board, and we did not have a bad meal. All the staff look like a cross between Al Pachino and Tony Bennett, but the food was wonderful!!!! I would return, if the opportunity came up again.
