Based on our 3-week stay during the summer of 2012 we can wholeheartedly recommend the hotel Ideal on the island of Ischia located in the city of Forio. Service was perfect with reasonable prices. Now I would like to be a bit more specific.
Food was excellent, in sufficient quantities and varieties as well.
The whole place was spotless and cozy. Individual units are spatial with attractive terraces and furnished with comfortable beds and functioning air-conditioning.
The grounds including two pools were properly maintained. There were plenty of chairs and umbrellas free of charge.
Once a week a live music entertainment was provided. The choice of music was suiting the crowd. Bit on a mellow side but still fit to dance to. Signore Franco sometimes took to the stage and sung popular tunes himself.
Upon request one could have a free use of portable Internet. True, bit slow but functioning.
I was even permitted to practise the piano ( Emil Pauker) when the dining room was empty. All other places that have a piano don’t even allow touching the keyboard.
Lastly, the most revealing case. When my wife got suddenly ill, the manager Signore Franco made necessary arrangement for the transfer to the local hospital in Laco Ameno and personally delivered her there in his car. Signora Amelia, another member of his team made a personal visit to the hospital and intervened to facilitate the hospital care.
She even picked up the prescription from the pharmacy as my wife needed more medication upon release from the six-day stay in the hospital.
