My boyfriend and I stayed at the Parco Cartaromana for 9 nights in July and August, and loved it. It was our first time in Ischia, and we wanted to do the holiday on a small a budget as possible, so I didn't quite know what to expect from the hotel. We booked a b&b stay (the cheapest option possible), with no air con and without a sea view (again, the cheapest option). When I placed the booking online, I requested a nice view if possible, and on arriving we were shown to a lovely room with a beautiful sea view and a view of the castle. Unfortunately, that room had flooded due to a problem in the bathroom, but we were quickly given a bigger room, but unfortunately without a sea view. This was no bother as the room was lovely (clean and comfortable) and although we were offered our original room the next day, we stayed in the bigger room for the rest of the stay.
The staff were very helpful in telling us where the best beaches and restaurants were - we were given a map of the island, street map of Ischia Ponte and Ischia Porto, and a bus timetable for buses to Ischia Porto and back, which came in very handy. We also bought all our bus tickets from reception. As it happened, the beaches on Ischia were very packed, and we found it a lot more relaxing to sunbathe by the pool in the day. 3 pools by the way, all great.
The hotel is in a great location, just a 10 minute (maybe less) walk from the centre of Ischia Ponte, which has some great restaurants. As we were only on b&b with the hotel, we ate in Ischia Ponte and Ischia Porto every night. The area is very safe and quiet, and the views are just beautiful.
At the end of our stay, we paid in cash with no problems, and left for Ischia Porto on the bus to catch our hydrofoil to Naples. When buying our tickets, we bumped into Marianna, who had come all the way down from the hotel to give me my house keys, which I had left behind in the room! I would have been mortified if I had lost them, and am so grateful to Marianna for bringing them all the way down to me, which she did not have to do!
Parco Cartoromana was a great hotel, with great staff, and if I ever return to Ischia (which I sincerely hope I do), I will be staying here.
