We have just returned from an eleven night holiday at this hotel. We booked it nearly a year ago. Just prior to leaving the UK we read the report” not 5 star” and were naturally concerned . After a day at the hotel we came to the conclusion that, in our opinion, the person who wrote “ not 5 star “ had stayed at a different hotel.
This hotel is fantastic. The food is the best we have had in a hotel in a long time. If you like seafood then this is the place to go to. As for the Maitre he does run the restaurant with full control but if you want to know anything about the food, Ischia, the castle, then he is your man. In fact all the staff went out of their way to make you welcome and to look after you.
Our room was quite small, but spotless, the bedlinen was changed daily, and the towels twice a day. On some days the temperature was 38 degrees C and the air conditioning struggled to cope.
Everything was provided, slippers, bathrobes, toiletries, mini bar etc. I thought they had made a mistake and didn’t provide tissues, but silly me, I didn’t look in the right place!
We used the thermal pool and sauna on a number of occasions which was quite an experience.
We did sit round the pool but found it quite hot. We tended to use the the sea pontoon where there was normally a sea breeze. We never had any difficulty in getting a lounger. The pontoon was the only area of the hotel where we did not use our iPad.
We enjoyed the hotel so much we didn’t go out a lot. We went to the castle , which was extremely interesting, we walked round the pretty main street of the town, and visited the gardens at La Mortella using the local bus, another experience not to be missed!
Mina, the Thomson rep, must be mentioned. She arranged our trip around the island including a vineyard visit, and she arranged a private visit to Pompei, both trips we enjoyed. On the day we were leaving, the unbelievably happened, the ferry was cancelled, but Mina managed to get us to the airport and held the plane for 20 minutes so that we could all get home.
Will we go to Il Moresco again. YES.
