La Rotonda Sul Mare
Ranked #3 of 37 Forio B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 30, 2012

We were sent there from the Ring Hostel in Forio (this was recoomended to us by another nice Hostel la Scalinatella in Atrani). Because we were a couple, the owner of the Hostel recommended that it would be mor suitable for us at Rotanda sul Mare (run by his brother). And it was so. A nice apartement with a small kitchenette, bathroom, TV and fridge. Very clean and a nice patio deck with a great view of the sea, comfortable sun beds, free rental kajak and snorkels and bikes...
All together a beautiful place to relax, especially for couples.

Over all my stay was very good in some cases excellent.The staff there ,are so friendly and accomadating,They are so glad to take you places of interest and there is a shuttle every night to the family restaurant.The hotel is situated right on the mediteran,there is a very large deck right on the ocean.The rooms are very clean some are small ,however very adequate and they do have apartments to rent as well.However most of the time is spent relaxing by the sea on the deck,some of the staff speak a few lanquages English and German mostly,and it is only a 5 minute drive from the port of Forio,the town has much history and there are plenty of sites to see easily obtainable by bus.Amerigo is one of the owners and his assistant is Andrea both are great guys and very freindly.Many Italians relax by the sea at the hotel and they have food available for lunch etc.

Room Tip: I was there taking a language course so i went alone you may want to think about apatments they have...

My wife and I have just returned from a week at the Rotonda Sul Mare.
This has been our 5th trip to Ischia and 3 times to Rotonda. We can't keep away! It is difficult to find anything other than praise for this place. The welcoming and hospitality from the owner/manager Amerigo and his family is superb. Everything is 'no problem' and well managed. The location of the accomodation is right onto the sea front and there has been a significant upgrading of rooms and the decking area. The deck area is large and is serviced by a well stocked bar with a a great food menu. Having explored the whole island by scooter we think Forio is the best location, the best beaches and the town itself is vibrant, noisy, italian and a great place to just sit down and watch it all happen with a glass of wine.
Rotonda Sul Mare offers the choice of just chilling out for the week or as a base to get to places like Herculaneum, Sorrento,other island trips. We usually doing more of the chilling out!

The four of us, my wife, our two friends and myself were treated like family by Amerigo and his wonderful staff at La Rotonda Sul Mare. We had the most relaxing time on the patio deck, enjoying the beautiful Mediterranean waters and soaking up the sun. Taking a dip in the water from the deck was so refreshing. We found it convenient for walking into the town of Forio to browse around and to the ferry terminal for the side trips we took to the other ports on the Island of Ischia as well as over to Capri, Sorrento, Positano, Pompei and the Amalfi coast. Ischia has wonderful spas and thermal baths, our favorite was Negombo Spas because we felt like we were in a tropical paradise. It is a great place to go and enjoy the fabulous Italian lifestyle to the max.

We have just left Forio, having spent 10 wonderful days at La Rotonda. Amerigo really could not have been a better host and his passion for the island was infectious. He really did go out of his way to make sure that we all had a fabulous time.

Although the sun deck was just going up as we left, we had a fantastic time kayaking and snorkelling in the waters right in front of the bar area. The sunsets from the shared sun terrace were breathtaking - the perfect place to share a glass of wine and stories from around the world. Anyone looking for an adrenalin rush might want to take a ride up to the family restaurant in the rotunda van - the speediest way to reach good food, prepared and served by a lovely family.

One or two of the rooms at La Rotonda are on the small side but this was not an issue for us as we loved spending our time out and about exploring the island or in the communal areas getting to know the family and staff.

I am very much looking forward to my next visit to La Rotonda and would like to send a huge grazie mille to Amerigo for being such a wonderful host.

Never gone back to the same place twice, but having had such a great time in September we decided to return in June this year and have just come back from an even better trip!

The family restaurant La Casserechia is only 5 minutes away and well worth the trip, Mama Tina's rabbit is divine.....The whole family make us feel so welcome, and as our host Amerigo, cannot do enough to enhance our holiday....

So much so, that cannot believe it, but we are going again next June....after much thought about other places / countries we asked ourselves why go anywhere else when La Rotunda ticks all boxes for a perfect vacation.

So ,much as I would like to keep this hidden from the rest of the world, you really would look far to find such a lovely Island & accomodation....Enjoy...

Amerigo, manager and owner of the apartment building, is a fabulous host. He ensures you have adequate privacy but still feel welcome. He is the best barista, drove us around Forio, and always provided suggestions and ideas for travel. The best rooms are at the front of the building and on the top floor, and face out to the sea. It is marvelous to fall asleep at night listening to the waves. The location is delightful - close enough to the heart of Forio so that you can walk there in a few minutes, but far enough away that the crowds are not distracting. Because it is located near a turnaround or dead-end, there is hardly any traffic, which makes it very peaceful. If I could, would go every year and stay here. Amerigo mentioned that he has families who have come every year for 30 years - it is no surprise!
