“Excellent hotel in an exceptional Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

A great hotel in an amazing island! Maria and the team work hard to create a lovely, warm atmosphere in the hotel - we were thoroughly well looked after all week by each member of staff.

Accommodation wise we had a lovely, functional family room that opened directly into an exotic garden area with incredible sea views creating an inside/outside atmosphere we really enjoyed.

The hotel has an excellent location sat on the hillside giving guests a great view of Citara Bay and the sea with steps down to a lovely beach below serviced by a café.

There are two outdoor pools - a good sized traditional pool and a smaller thermal pool that’s replenished daily with thermal volcanic spring water. There’s also an indoor heated pool and Jacuzzi.

We stayed on a half board basis and ate very well - there are a couple of ‘special nights’ in the week with local delicacies and other days it’s a four course affair which was generally high quality, varied and cooked well.

We’d thoroughly recommend Ischia for a holiday, currently not really on the UK tourist radar - highlights are the wide selection of beaches, thermal parks like Poseidon (10 min walk from the hotel) and the incredible Mortella Garden - William Walton’s residence.

We did a day trip to Capri - and whilst its undoubtedly beautiful and one day wasn’t enough, it was hugely busy and expensive and we were relived to be back in Ischia which had the pace, beauty, serenity and good food which we were looking for.

Hotel Providence Terme is an excellent hotel attracting guests of all ages (we’re a young family of four) - highly recommended!!

This hotel made our holiday just perfect! It's located few minutes away from Forio, few steps from the beach and it has a stunning view from most of the rooms and the common area.
It has 2 outdoor swimming pools (one of thermal water at 40° coming up continuously from the underground - a very pleasant fall to stand under...); it has also an indoor swimming pool and a relaxing area.
It's nice to take a walk in the marvellous garden, among the herbs and statues.
The food is simple, but really tasty. Most of the ingredients are from the owners farm on the island, that's the reason for the great taste!
Don't miss the "ISCHITAN DINNER" on friday night, to taste the local specialties and listen the most beautiful neapolitan songs (a captivating duo is playing live)
The staff is friendly, welcoming and so helpful that anyone feels like home.
A place worth staying!!!

Room Tip: Some rooms have no view at all (the ones close to the reception and the ones on the ground floor)

Just returned from a trip to Ischia where we stayed at Hotel Providence. Overall we had a great time, the location across the street from Cava dell'Isola beach was great. It was a 15 minute walk into Forio and we walked into town every night. The service of the staff was excellent, especially Maria and the two bartenders (Mauricio and I can't recall the evening bartenders name). They made us fresh juice from the fruit in the garden that was absolutely delicious. The pool deck has a beautiful ocean view. Rooms were clean and simple with a small outdoor space, no frills.

I traveled with a girlfriend however and we wouldn't recommend this for a girls trip. The clientele was much older than us (we're in our early 30s) and it was very quiet. We were hoping for a little more liveliness, however we were able to find that in town. The only negative thing about this hotel was the fact that one of the members of the cleaning staff parked herself outside our room 2 mornings in a row chatting away for a really long time with somebody. When in Europe one tends to stay out late and sleep in, especially on a relaxing vacation. However somebody talking loudly outside your room at 8am doesn't allow for much sleeping in.

All that said I would recommend Hotel Providence if you are looking for a nice quiet getaway but not necessarily for a trip with friends.

Lovely small hotel. They have great food and the terme bath also 2 pools, one indoors and one outdoors. The owners and two of the adult children still own and manage this hotel. They are on site and offer excellent service. The location is great because you can walk to Foria and walk to the one large, fancy terme with all kinds of spa offerings. Hotel Providence had great food, too.

This is an absolute gem of a hotel on a spectacular island that I have now been visiting for 3 years. Everything about it affords a wonderfully comfortable and relaxing holiday.

The staff are genuinely kind, professional and courteous and are a credit to the owner Signora Maria, who is an extremely charming and attentive lady. She took time during her very busy day to give me a guided tour around the hotel's aromatic herb garden ("Garden of the Senses"), of which she is particularly fond and proud and quite rightly so! It is obvious when speaking with her that the hotel and its reputation are of the utmost importance to her, and this is reflected in the way that the hotel is run.

The public/communal areas are all spacious, comfortable and inviting, providing also areas dedicated to TV and games (cards, etc). The outside terraces boast magnificent mountain and sea views from which THE most spectacular sunsets can be witnessed.

The gardens surrounding the outdoor pools, one of which is thermal, are beautiful and perfectly maintained making that all important holiday activity of 'relaxing by the pool' the pleasurable experience it should be.

The spa offers various wellness and beauty treatments and I was reliably informed that herbs from the garden are used in some of the treatments, as well as by the chef in the restaurant!

The hotel offers regular quality live entertainment which includes Neapolitan singers and musicians, giving the guests the opportunity to show off their dance floor skills - an opportunity that many guests do not let slip through their fingers I'm delighted to say!

The restaurant, which has a sea view, provides an excellent and diverse menu, and from a very personal point of view, desserts to die for!

I have been in love with the island of Ischia since first visiting in 2009; experiencing the hospitality of Hotel Providence makes me love it even more.

Stayed 2 weeks in this splendid hotel which has much to offer. Staff always kind and courteous, spacious public areas with wonderful sea views, good quality restaurant with 3 choices of first and second courses, rooms kept well cleaned without disturbing the guests, large pool area with both standard and thermal pools, quality evening events, convenient bus connections to Forio. All in all I would recommend this hotel for a relaxing, stress free holiday on beautiful Ischia.
