We spent three nights in Ischia at the Aragona Palace. I would have given the hotel five stars, but did have one issue. We upgraded to a room with a view (the view is spectacular); the one issue -- and it's a big one -- was that literally diagonally one floor down from our room is some liquor bar that has speakers outside. They played music until 2:30 in the morning and it literally sounded as though the speakers were in our room. The first night I thought it was just because of a holiday, but the second night it was playing at 10:30 PM and I had to call to move rooms. The staff was very helpful and gave me a new room, but assuming that the bar plays the music every night, I don't see how anyone can sleep comfortably in the room that I upgraded into. I'm 25 and not at all against music/bars/good times, but there was no escaping the noise in this room. The new room was much better, albeit with no view.
Aside from having trouble sleeping that first night, the hotel is very nice. The roofdeck has a lot of seats with a nice small pool. The hotel is just a 5 minute walk to the beach. It's location can get a bit loud with all the people walking by the port, but it's lively. There's a lot of small restaurants around, too.
The included breakfast was great and included very friendly waitstaff; the capuccino was excellent.
I would have given 5 stars, but the noise was truly that frustrating. I know it's not the hotel making the noise, but considering I upgraded and paid a decent amount for the room, a less noisy room would have been preferred. If you prefer a quieter area, I would check out the Castella Aragona hotel. It's a bit further away, but in a quiet area.
