Just returned from a blissful week at the lovely Marina 10 and I'm already desperate to go back!
We booked a week long girly getaway on the basis of the other Tripadvisor reviews and I'm pleased to report that we made completely the right decision. From the moment we arrived, Valentina and Federica were fabulous hosts - so friendly, so welcoming and so keen to make our stay memorable.
Our room, 103, was spacious and airy with excellent airconditioning (important in the Ischian heat!) and a modern, immaculately clean bathroom. Plus we had a walk-in wardrobe, which as women we were very grateful for. Only niggle was that the door rattled when other people slammed their doors but during our stay, a handyman popped round to fiddle with the door and this seemed to improve matters. A very minor quibble though & the staff were obviously already trying to fix it prior to our arrival.
The pool area was secluded & quiet with super comfy sunloungers - luckily we had it to ourselves for most of our stay! We were very impressed with the lovely gardens too and enjoyed strolling through them at night with the twinkly lights, the trickle of the fountain and the soft jazz (which is piped through the gardens all day and evening).
Breakfast was varied and plentiful with beautiful handmade Italian coffees made especially for us every morning. The breakfast area was then transformed into a pretty cafe area post-11am, where we enjoyed several glasses of Prosecco and Aperol Spritzes in the evenings while overlooking the gorgeous gardens.
While there, we treated ourselves to a massage for about 30E each (from a muscly young Italian guy - hooray!) which took place in the private spa area, which has a Turkish Bath, Jacuzzi and rainfall shower. With low-lighting, lots of candles, atmospheric music and a pretty treatment area sheathed with gauzy curtains, it was the perfect way to round off our trip.
The staff couldn't do enough to help during our stay and kindly helped organise a bottle of Prosecco and a fresh fruit platter in the room for my friend's birthday. Not only that but, totally unprompted, on my friend's birthday they brought out a beautiful birthday cake at breakfast time which she was especially touched by.
Thank you to all the wonderful staff at Marina 10 - this hotel really is a hidden gem!
