I booked this holiday at the last minute on the Internet. The island is lovely and the hotel has many good points. The location is excellent, the rooms are spotless, the gardens are attractive, the pool is super and the meals are good.
However, being English does have its problems. On my arrival I was the only English person in the hotel. Socially this didn't matter as the other guests were very friendly. The problem came when I wanted to book one of the many excursions offered by the hotel.
"Not possible! Only Italian and german! You are English!" The man in reception was really determined not to make my booking.
Infuriated I got on to the Thomas Cooke agent in Sorrento. ( there isn't one on Ischia.) The young man there sorted it out in 5 minutes . No problem.
The man in reception was furious . In fact, he hardly spoke to me. Out of devilment I remarked to him -- " Sir, you underestimate English women!" I had a good trip.
