Found this hotel on Secret Escapes and had a cheeky week in July. Flew to Naples then took the ferry to Ischia. The ferry ticket area was a little chaotic, Italians don't queue! And standing on the port felt like you were emigrating to America..
On arrival the chaos faded away, we were met with a limo at the port courtesy of the hotel. On check in we were allocated a sea view room with views over the sea towards Vesuvius through some huge scots pine trees in the gardens, absolutely stunning!
We had booked on a dinner B & B basis. Dinner was 5 courses (3 served and 2 buffet service), the restaurant terrace overlooked the mountains and the sunset, the waiters were all very friendly and helpful and very attentive. The food was excellent and different every night, enough choice for all tastes. We swapped dinner for lunch one day and the lunch was superb, needed an afternoon nap to recover!
The pools are fantastic (7) , all have great views and do not get crowded. A few of them have spa buttons so you can outdoor jacuzzi to relax. The lunch bar was great for drinks and you can be served around the pool if you wish. The setting is just superb on the top of the hill overlooking the bay of Laco Ameno. Truly stunning.
A courtesy car will take you into town anytime you want and the hotel also has sun loungers on the beach free to use, again a car will take you and bring you back.
The rooms are quite old fashioned, but classic. All you need and cool out of the sun and heat. The cleaning staff bring you cakes when they change the towels!
This hotel is a real hidden gem, if you want something special then this is it. Go for the DBB option, it is worth it, you will not be disappointed with the food.
