We stayed here for two weeks on a bed & breakfast basis. Based on other reviews we emailed the hotel ahead of arriving requesting a room with air conditioning. Almost immediately we received a response confirming our request.
On arrival we were greeted and our cases were taken to our room for us. The room (137) was effectively under the swimming pool. It was decorated in a simple manner, and had a single window which gave a view over the port. The room & bathroom were very clean. The air conditioning worked well & was quiet in operation. Beds were comfortable. Shower wasn't the most powerful, but worked well enough. The room was thoroughly cleaned every day, and bathroom towels replaced.
The breakfast provided was very good with a good choice of cereals, fruit, pastries, tea, coffee, etc.
We had a few lunches at the hotel, and particularly enjoyed their bruschetta.
If you wanted dinner at the hotel, you needed to inform them by the end of breakfast on that day, and it was served at 7.30pm, which was too early for us, so we ate in the town every evening. However we always saw plenty of people enjoying dinner at the hotel.
The pool area is very clean and there was never any problems getting a sunbed. Something we was not aware of prior to arriving, was the hotel do insist that everyone wears a swimming cap before entering the pool. These can be borrowed from reception for free.
The hotel provide free WiFi in the reception area, and it's range extends out to the terrace area. It doesn't extend as far as the pool area or hotel rooms.
Throughout our stay we found the staff to be professional, polite and courteous. It's immediately obvious this is run by a family, and is a refreshing change from the large corporate hotels.
As others have mentioned the hotel is located half way up a steep hill. You can get into the town via the road, or take the 138 steps. Going into town we didn't find the road to be any quicker than taking their stairs. However returning from the town and taking the steps was very hard work, and didn't get any easier throughout our stay!
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Don Pedro, had no complaints about anything and would definitely stay here again if we return to Ischia.
