“Wonderfully unique experience”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

The hotel was simply wonderful. The location is amazing; Its located on its own island overlooking Ischia. The hotel itself is a renovated monastery that is part of an ancient castle. While staying, you are feel to tour the castle (well, the half of the castle owned by the hotel; you must buy a ticket to tour the other half). The rooms are beautifully renovated. We booked a sea-view room and the view of Ischia and Mediterranean were wonderful.

The staff are also amazing. Gulio ensures that you have everything you need and is very attentive. Additionally, Gulio's English was impeccable. There is constantly someone on duty at the front desk to handle any request. The wait staff in the restaurant were very professional and spoke English very well.

If you go, I would recommend the half board because the hotel restaurant is amazing. The smoked buffalo mozarella is incredible as was everything else. Our first night, we were the only guests eating at the hotel and it was like having a private chef.

My husband and I spent a wonderful evening here, it's perfect. The staff, the building, the food, the view are all just amazing. Guilo is the perfect host and so helpful I would recommend his hotel to everyone and I have since returning home.

From the moment we first made contact with Giulio at Albergo Il Monastero we knew that this would be a truly memorable stay. We enjoyed five nights in a beautiful room with a balcony overlooking the bridge and waterfront of the town. Giulio was the perfect host, nothing was too much trouble. The restaurant was excellent with beautiful produce from their own organic garden and we were assisted to find some lovely local wines to enjoy. We had many highlights one of which was seeing perigee moon rise over the castello. The most special was reaffirming our wedding vows in the beautiful Chiesa dello Spiritu Santo which was kindly arranged by Giuilo - he even came to the church with us and took photos x That is service x

Six of us went to dinner at the top of this 14th century castle which sits on a private island (sold to a lawyer in 1911 by the Italian government and still in the family apparently) and is absolutely stunning.

The restaurant was small (30 seats?) and we had the place to ourselves b/c there was also an annual film festival going on which we did not know about (next year we go to film and then late dinner perhaps).

After dinner the hotel manager Guilio showed us around, including a big "vegetable garden in the sky" with the world's tastiest cherry tomatoes (get the bruschetta) and then showed us a 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment that rents for about EUro 350 per night. Seems like a great deal, with breakfast included and dinner optional (lunch you have in the adjacent town or on a beach or boat)

Service was good and friendly too

Room Tip: the big apartment is almost too large, but with amazing old terraces off each bedroom so I think wor...

Pulling up in the bus to Villa Luigi Mazella and seeing the location, my wife and I had to steel ourselves. This place looks like something out of a fairytale. Walking through the castle and the well-kept, meditative monastery grounds, we had pinch ourselves. A cool breeze was blowing about under a hot sun, and the incredibly cordial host brought us to our beautiful accommodations. Wooden beamed ceilings, big wooden shutters, gloriously tiled bathrooms, all in a simple slightly rustic styling. Then we opened the shutters and found ourselves overlooking the bay and the rest of city and our jaws dropped. Needless to say, we enjoyed our stay tremendously. The staff was extraordinarily helpful, cheerful, and kind, and the breakfasts were easily the best among all the B&B's we stayed during our travels through Italy, and the peace and quiet atop the castle and monastery grounds provided a wonderful sanctuary after long days of hiking in the hot sun and sweating on local buses. Highly, highly, highly recommend staying here, and be sure to spend just a little bit more to get one of the sea facing rooms.

We spent 3 nights but would have loved to stay many more. The location is perfect with simple but immaculate rooms - who would want to watch TV when you have the views on offer here!
The restaurant had a variety of delicious dishes both local and more traditional Italian with a good selection for vegeterians.
Last but not least, the staff made all the difference from reception to waiting staff.
The manager, Giulio, went out of his way to make our stay as comfortable and relaxed as possible, preparing public transport schedule for our onward location, boat trips around the island, electric bicycle hire and recommend spa resort. We didn't have beach towels and he offered to lend us a couple along with his personal rucksack. We have stayed in a few hotels from 5* to b&bs but this is truly first class service with a rare human touch!

In a month of Travel in Italy, This was one of my favorite places to stay!
Gorgeous setting, fantastic staff. This place is just a dream.
Keep in mind the rooms are a bit small, but we had a balcony and it was worth the few Euro extra.

Don't miss Risortante Ciccio (sp?) right down from the castle, and the castle has an EXCELLANT, although pricey dinner too.

Room Tip: It has no swimming pool, and I can not uncheck the box. Sorry, mistake. Tip.. Get a balcony!
