“A wonderful place to enjoy Ponza”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

We loved this hotel . Our room and terrace had an amazing view The room was comfortable and provided good amenities including a fridge . Breakfast was very good and The restaraunt was excellent and highly recommended for dinner. The staff were most helpful in informing us about the island and helping us hire a scooter and anything else we needed. This area of Ponza is really a good place to base yourself if you like a quieter area. The sea was close to the hotel and the village was not far to walk to.i would highly recommend to stay at this hotel .

Dear sirs,
we are very happy for your comments and that your stay with us was to your liking. We always try to do our best to
make our guests feel at home. The island of Ponza helps us with its beauty, beaches, its good restaurants and its blue waters. But the most beautiful pearl are tourists like you, a value that it’s priceless.
Thank you.

Good value for
Money!
Highly reccomended!!

This is the third year in a row that I have come to Villaggio die Pescatori on the island of Ponza.
I absolutely love this place. The rooms are very beautiful, with spectacular views of the sea. Very picturesque, all the comforts. Air conditioning. The food at the hotel restaurant is very good, and guests dine out on a beautiful terrace. There is a small cove with nice sandy beach within easy walking distance where you can find a wonderfully rustic restaurant tucked into the cliffs. The food is the freshest fish imaginable, caught by the locals each day. Hotel Villaggio dei Pescatori provides free shuttle service to the port and shopping area. The staff is very friendly and helpful with making arrangements for daytime boating trips around Ponza, and to the nearby islands. I highly recommend the tours by Silverio. If you desire a beautiful location combined with peace and quiet, this is a winner!

We were delighted with this hotel, which was chosen for our first visit to Ponza based on the TripAdvisor reviews (including those in Italian which I could barely make out!)

The hotel is a 15 minute windy uphill drive from the small port where the ferries and hydrofoils land, but the hotel will pick you up (and return you) if you let them know in advance.

Its website accurately shows the amazing location of the several buildings on a cliffside overlooking the sea and overhanging the "natural pools" where you can swim, sunbathe, and enjoy the comings and goings of boats, children, and waves.

The rooms and bathrooms are small-ish and quite basic, but clean and charming, and, again, with wonderful views and outdoor terraces with small tables. Breakfast (on the terrace) is included. The prices charged (at least in late May-early June) are an excellent value by any standards.

Unless you have your own transport, you will have to have most of your dinners at the hotel as well. (Given the generous breakfasts, you may be able to skip lunch.) Silverio, the current chef, does a good job with seafood and pastry!

This is a great place when the weather is warm and you are an adult who wants to spend nearly all your time outdoors on this lovely island: at the "natural pools," taking out a boat (or being taken out on one) to view the fantastic grottoes, hiking, or having drinks and dinner on the hotel terrace.

You might, however, want to avoid the highest season (August and perhaps July weekends) when Romans apparently crowd onto the island, and you might also want to make sure you are close enough to summer that the air and sea are warm enough (late May was perfect).

Be advised that the hotel is not a good choice for those wanting such amenities as wi fi, international television, spa, honeymoon package, lobby, or activities. Nor is it a good choice for people with limited mobility, since the grounds are full of steps and the way down to the "pools" is steep. It also is not a good choice for families with children or adolescents who need organized amusements.

For a simply enchanting and peaceful italian vacation you must stay at the Villagio Dei Pescatori on the island of ponza. This is not Capri with the day-trippers from the massive cruise ships that ruin an otherwise beautiful island. This is Ponza, one of the great gems of the Meditteranean.

The staff beginning with Giuseppe, Tiziano and the rest, whose names escape me now, were excellent. They saw to our every needs. The hotel sits on a cliff above some of the most beautiful waters in Italy. We never had a bad meal anywhere on the island, and the cuisine at the hotel was impeccable.

Congratulations to the hotel and their staff. We are returning this summer (2010) for another ten days

Villaggio dei Pescatori (fishermen village) is a group of bungalow style rooms located on the reef facing the coast and the Piscine Naturali (natural pool). The rooms are quite small and simple but the balconies are the best part of them as one could spend a day just sitting there and watching the beautiful landscape. I only had breakfast there and I asked for room service, the selection of food is quite basic but it wasn't a big deal.

I had booked to stay in Ponza after reading an article in The Times. The island is OK, but not particularly beautiful or amazing - the port is dirty and smelly, the island was a real disappointment to be honest. The Hotel was also a let down. The room was nearly clean, very small and smelled damp: the shower door was hanging off and leaked, the towels were cheap and nasty as was the bed linen, the deck chairs were provided without cushions, the bed was very small and uncomfortable. The air con was not switched on when we first arrived and we were told that it was only on until August, they did turn it on for us as it was v hot but it did take an age to work and then continued to leak. The food in the Hotel: there was nothing available when we first arrived off the ferry (that arrives at the same time most days) so we had to walk 20 mins to the local shop after having travelled to the island. At dinner we did luckily have the very helpful American sounding waiter but the menu was so limited, this was because we were off season (?? hardly) and they were running things down - all that was available was fish - which was OK but not brilliant. Lunch the next day we were told was exactly the same as dinner. Breakfast was not good, one small stale croissant and one coffee, juice was OK but kept running out. We cut our stay short due to all of this. We had to pay EUR40 to be taken to a restaurant where we could get a "decent" dinner and back, then also pay EUR20 to be taken to the ferry port too. I would not recommend this Hotel, or Ponza really to be honest, I was deeply disappointed.

We read this review a bit late and we thought it was our duty to answer, providing also the point of view of the hotel.
We understand how this customer may feel, but to be honest, we must say that they have been a bit unfortunate with the weather which was the real cause of their dissatisfaction. Due to the fact that throughout their stay it rained almost every day, and when it didn't, it was cloudy, with high humidity.
