“Loved Ischia”
Reviewed September 5, 2008

We have just returned from a perfect holiday in Ischia and part of the responsibility for that lies with Hotel Villa Carolina in the marina port of Foria. The hotel was immaculate with fantastic views of the marina, beach, mountains and out to sea. Despite being on the main road through Foria, which is quaint, not a main highway, it was very well soundproofed. The hotel caters for everyone, including families, couples and individuals. The theme is one of a boutique hotel, but life was made very easy for us and allowed us to relax and enjoy the beautiful island of Ischia and all that it has to offer. The island's visitors are on the main Italians, but that only enhances the atmosphere as it is very genuine as opposed to its sister island Capri which does lean towards promoting itself on the tourist route. We loved Ischia and would recommend it as a holiday place to anyone.

  • Liked — The siting of the hotel
  • Disliked — The pool was quite small - rather large jacuzzi really

We spent 4 days in June this year and we really enjoyed it. It has been refurbished recently and it is really contemporary, something we like.
The only down side is that the rooms called 'last minute' are infact not very pleasant, and they are quite cheap, so very tempting. We had to upgrade to a better/standard room because our room was really damp, dark and humid, even with 40 degrees outside!
The staff was really helpful and overall we liked it, but I would not raccomend the cheap rooms to anybody.
Great swimingpool on the roof and fantastic location, so close to everything!
Forio is a great relaxing place.

i stayed at villa carolina in sept. after all the summer crowds had left the island and that's probably why we had the hotel and staff to ourselves. the room was incredible, a little small but it did it's job... the view we had from our balcony was of the port and was incredible at night and in the morning. the staff was awesome, especially the bellboy, Jimmy, who drove the mini bus to the beaches... he ended up being our personal tourguide, taking my cousin and i on little sightseeing trips here and there when he could escape from the hotel. the food at the restaurant next door was great and since everything was included it was a great value. the hotel had just opened 4 months before we got there so there was no beauty center yet, but no matter, the place itself was magical. my cousin and i even got photographed in the pool and put on the cover of their brochure (the pictures are below)! I would highly recommend it to anyone, there's nothing bad to be said about villa carolina!

Probably the best located hotel in Forio with amazing views from the roof terrace. The hotel is quite uniquely designed, quite boutiquey and the pool on the roof is great for lounging around. The hotel is geared towards italian customers (as is the island) but the manager made us feel very very welcome . In the hotel there is a sailing school, as well as a beauty centre, although there wasn't really information about it. There was no english information in the room about them which was a shame. The room was slightly smaller than I had anticipated but had a nice view on to the marina and the bathroom was really nicely designed again. Very good value for Forio.

We spent 3 fantastic days in this brand new hotel. The staff was very helpful and the rooms were spotless. Added bonus just few steps from the jetty. Great value for money
