“Like no place on earth!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2010

I had a great week while staying at the Hotel Poggio Del Sole. The Hotel is located in a quiet yet panoramic spot. The Colella family, who own the place, tried to do everything possible to make my stay as comfortable as possible. The hotel restaraunt is excellent. All food is prepared and cooked fresh on the spot. The staff spoke great English and gave me great pointers on what to visit on the island and the activities to do. I really had a great time and hope to go back one day.

The Colella family who owns and runs Poggio del Sole hotel and La Casereccia restaurant put their heart and soul into everything they do, and they will provide an amazing experience for your stay in Ischia. The hotel is situated on a hill and boasts stunning views of the sea and island. There is beautiful vegetation surrounding the hotel, with gardens and a vineyard nearby. The rooms are charming, airy, bright and clean. The Colellas will make you feel like family- they are amazing, warm, and gracious people and will show you a wonderful time that you'll never forget. You MUST eat at the family's La Casereccia restaurant.... I have been all over Italy, and eaten in dozens of restaurants, and La Casereccia is absolutely the best food you will find hands down. Nearly all of the ingredients for everything they make are grown in the family's garden. They have amazing oranges, lemons, limes, figs, grapes, berries, olives, zucchini, eggplant, tomatoes, basil and all kinds of herbs. They make their own wine and limoncello which are awesome. You absolutely must try the paccheri con cozze e pecorino. The mussels are perfection. The parmigiana e melanzane and bruschetta are the best you will find. I definitely recommend staying at Poggio del Sole- it's a special, wonderful, magical place that you'll never forget.

A haven on the beautifuly island of Ischia. Good quality, clean rooms with wonderful view of the bay. Excellent home-cooked food, reasonable rates and most of all fantastic family hospitality. Perfect for those who like some peace and quiet, but within easy reach of local sights and amenities. Negombo Thermal Spa a must. Highly recommended.

I never thought the island of Ischia could be so breathtaking! To then find a wonderful place like the Poggio del Sole was a real blessing. It is family owned and the family and staff are very welcoming and helpful for any need. The view from our rooms were terrific. We enjoyed the pool and the beaches nearby. During the evening resturant was a real joy. Highly recommended for anyone looking for the fun and relaxation

When I began looking for a hotel on the island it was difficult to decide which one to choose because of the hundreds on the island and then between those with many/good reviews. I was travelling for the first time with my fiancé so felt a bit anxious when booking, but had finally decided on Poggio del Sole.
And needless to say, the choice was great: arriving at the hotel we got a very comfy and clean room with an amazing view of the town and the ocean, the garden and the pool area was very quiet and good to relax. The first night we went out for dinner finding the local restaurant a little disappointing in quality and price. The following day we enjoyed the hotel breakfast and got ready to discover the island on a scooter which the hotel staff arranged for us to rent. Fantastic - definately recommend it - have your license with you though.
However the best part was the dinner at the restaurant, very italian setting and the food was unlike what we had had before,reasonably priced and we were offered some homemade limoncello - very popular in the southern italian region.
If you are ever planning to visit Ischia, stay there and most important - eat there!

My mother and I visited Ischia in August 2009 and stayed at the Poggio del Sole.The rooms at the hotel have beautiful views overlooking Forio.The rooms are large and comfortable with all the necessary conveniences.There is a swimming pool and Jacuzzi located next to the hotel where you can sit and overlook the sea-a very beautiful setting.The Collela family treat you with warmth and nothing is a problem,they go out of their way to organise trips,transport and advice on places to visit.The family have a wonderful restaurant situated below the hotel where you can experience real home cooking by mama Collela-La Cassericia.I would highly recommend a stay at this hotel and will definetly be back.

I must say I'm quite surprised by the last comments as our time and stay in Ischia was to the contrary. We found the family very hospitable and accommodating, and found mostly if we needed or wanted anything - you just have to ask - and the staff/family are happy to help. Be sure to keep a note of both the cellular contact as well as the hotel landline numbers incase you can't get through on the one. Comfy rooms, beautiful scenery, but pity the weather was not very good, however, the spas and hot springs seemed the best places to be. The restaurant was quiet which was possibly due to the weather or season, but the food was lovely - nothing like real, home-cooked traditional Italian food. And we got some complimentary limoncello which we were explained was made by Papa Salavtore. Relaxing getaway, experienced southern Italy in its raw essence.
