“WONDERFUL STAFF !!”
Reviewed June 6, 2011

I went on my first ever 'singles' holiday with Solitaire Holidays and overall was not dissappointed. Even though we had terrible delays at Manchester with Thompson Airline ( 11 hours !!- will give them a miss next trip!) and only just managed to catch the last ferry of the day to the island of Ischea ( thanks to the James Bond of all Taxi drivers !!) we arrived at midnight and were shown to out rooms extremely ready for a good nights' sleep. WHATEVER YOU DO - DO NOT ACCEPT TO BE PUT INTO ROOM 50 !!- it is RIGHT NEXT DOOR TO THE RESTAURANT which at 6am begins to get ready for breakfast with the banging and clattering that you would expect from a restaurant but you dont want it right next door. At 7am the 'Good Mornings- you had a good night?' begins...i complained in no uncertain terms and got moved...but it cost me 10euros a night more..... I would not have minded this if i had known at booking that a nice room would cost more, but was told that Solitaire had access to only the 'lesser' rooms!! The ones wth dark balconies that dont get any direct sun... or around the back of the hotel.
Apart from this dissappointment and extra surprise cost - the week was beautiful...hotel spotless and the staff really do go OUT OF THEIR WAY to help you in any way possible- day or night ! Food ample and very italian - by the end of the week we were gagging for steak and chips, not much real meat offered unless you call rabbit - meat. Location was great and i was able to walk everywhere easily - which i loved, but buses were easy if you want that instead. I enjoyed the week - but felt that a week was enough to have done everything there was to do. Solitaire holidays are not cheap, but for the first time it was worth it, next time i will be braver and go it alone and save some money! Thanks to all who were there with me and hope you feel my review was fair.

Room Tip: get room 206 overlooking the pool - but pay extra!

Very clean and friendly hotel withlovely staff. Thermal bath and steam room were a real bonus.Behind the bar wasv a very enthusiastic Francesco. My room had no view but it was quiet and very comfortable. Bus stop just opposite and short walk to shops and all important cash machine. Wel done Francesco in reception and the team.

I start with saying the staff were wonderful, pleasant and eager to please. Breakfast was average but not stingy - cereal, bread, yoghurt, selection of meats and cakes. Juices & coffees too. We had lunch there once and was nice. The pool was good, the indoor spa pool was lovely (watch out of the odd mosi) and the sunbeds plentiful and comfy. Our room was a little basic but clean and nicely decorated. The beds were a very sqeaky and a little uncomfortable - very narrow. no fridge/mini bar or tea & coffee making facilities which is a pain. The room we were in was very dark and at no time got any direct sun. But there was air-con which is nice. The shower was fab. The location is what sells this hotel. Forio is such a lovely town and it is a lovely 3 minutes stroll from the hotel to the centre and a 10 minute walk to the beach. If you get the right price on your booking this hotel is well worth a try.

This hotel was picked for us by the organiser of our Tango tour. On arrival they dealt with us in a most efficient and friendly manner. The room was of a good size,clean and everything worked the bed could have been a little softer but was still comfy. Facilities are great with a lovely swimming pool,and indoor spa pool. The pool bar/restaurent was great and the level of service was second to none. The Hotel is located right in the centre of Forio in its own little Oasis so getting into the shopping/Bar part of town is a 3 minute walk with the harbour an extra minute away. Food was good, bar prices reasonable. Highly reccomended

A Genuine hospitable encounter that you are bound to fall for. Genuinely friendly and helpful. Beautiful interior with chill out launch and bar, lovely restaurant with excellent food and entertaining surprises.
Thermal pool and spa treatments, Nice outdoor pool, lovely setting.
The isle has got so much to offer and you will get in to a very good feel, of being.
On the early side for lots of sun shine but still so nice.

Stayed here last week for four nights with my wife and I've got to say it's one the best 3 star hotels that I've stayed in. Good location, 5 minutes walk from the centre but set back far enough from the road not to be noisy. Booked directly with the hotel via email.

We stayed in room number 202, on the first floor with a massive shower and large balcony facing the front of the hotel. The room was pretty basic but clean and a good size. The TV was tiny and only had 1 English channel (BBC news) but there's no need to sit around watching telly on holiday so it's no problem. Could do with wireless internet access though.

One thing that is good about this place is that it has a good pool with bar and indoor thermal pool and health spa/suite which I thought was great for a 3 star at these prices.

Stayed B&B and the breakfast was just OK but what you expect from a hotel in Italy so no complaints.

Must say something about the staff. From the front desk to the waiter and especially the bar staff, they were all really friendly, professional and would go out of their way to help - great service!

Pros; friendly, helpful staff, clean rooms and located close but no too close to centre of Forio.
Cons; small rooms and food only average.

Also think carefully before booking with Solitair Holidays. Their main rep is poor (especially compared to the usually superb Solos reps) and unlike Solos don't use age groups. In theory this can make for an interesting mix but for our group included a lady of 80+ with some health problems (some suspected this included the early stages of Alzheimer's).

Forio is a decent Southern Italian beach resort.
