“Excellent location”
Reviewed 23 May 2013

It is a good hotel but I was not super impressed. Looking at their website the hotel pretends more than it is. So if you expect a decent Italian hotel with average service, than you won’t be disappointed.

The rooms are sizable and clean. I personally don’t like furniture to be covered with plastic, but some of you might think this is hygienic.

The breakfast has enough choice.

The spa was good and the beauty treatments were excellent.
The rooftop pool is small. From the pool terrace you have a very nice view over the harbor.

The hotel is located in Ischia Porto and around the corner you have the main shopping street of Ischia. There are plenty of restaurants very nearby. And you can walk to the ferries. So the location is excellent.

For me the service was average.
Although people were very friendly and helpful, it sometimes was a problem to speak to the right person. There were a lot of students working who couldn’t help you and the people who could were not always immediately available.
At the pool there are no towels available. So you had to go back to your room to take the ones hanging there. Not ideal.

Room Tip: We had a room on the 2nd floor with access to a large terrace with lounge chairs.

I have just returned from the amazing island of Ischia and stayed in the Aragona Palace. From the moment we arrived, the staff made our visit truly special . Our room overlooked the harbour, at our request and can be noisy at the weekend, but the view of the harbour is almost worth the noise. The rooms are spotless and the cleaning and changing of bed linen and towels is excellent. The service at the pool for snacks, coffees and drinks is also wonderul.. The spread at breakfast is worth getting out of bed early, the array of sweet cakes as well as all the usual is amazing and we eventually tucked into fresh doughnets at 8am!!!. I would highly recommend this hotel to any couple or groups of friends as the location is central to everying, ferries, busses and restaurants. We will be back!

Room Tip: harbour view rooms are a little noisy

The hotel is within walking distance of the ferry, handy if you come as a foot passenger, no parking if bringing a car. Parking nearby 10 euros a night. The staff were very welcoming and extremely helpful luggage taken to room. The room was very clean and we had a harbour view. There are restaurants just around the corner and shopping a short walk away We took our small dog who was also made very welcome. The breakfast selection was excellent and bar snacks great as well, complimentary cakes with coffee and savouries with drinks. Highly recommended would definitely stay again,

My husband and I traveled to the island of Ischia from July 2, 2012 to July 5, 2012. Ischia was on my "bucket list" even though we have been to Italy many times. I researched hotels and decided on the Aragona Palace. From the time I contacted Luisa, the Manager, until we had to leave, the service we received from her and her staff was outstanding. While my husband speaks fair Italian, most of the staff and Luisa spoke English very well. Our room was very comfortable and clean. We had a view of the harbor and the location is right by the ferry. Excellent restaurants abound in the area and we loved turning the corner and walked along the beautiful street with shops and gelato, arched by pink and white oleander trees. Simply gorgeous. Oh my god, I was instantly in love with this beach town. The island is scenic and easy to walk. One day, we took the local bus that allows you to ride by the entire island and get off at stops along the way. What a great and easy way to view the island. We did go to the castle and it was lovely. The island's history is fascinating
.
Every day we used the roof top pool, which we loved and could cool off. We used the spa services which were fairly reasonable and used the indoor spa pool. It was quite nice.
Luisa arranged our transportation from the Naples airport , to get to the ferry station. I believe it was 100 euros cash. However, she recommended that we just get ourselves back on our own, as it was much cheaper. We needed to just get to the train station, on our way to Rome.

We only had the breakfast part of the board, but you can have three meals a day, on site. Since Luisa knew that my husband adores rabbit (coniglio Ishcatani), she invited us to have our dinner at the hotel, our last night, because the chef was preparing rabbit pasta and roasted rabbit. He was a happy man. Ischia is known for their just caught that day seafood and the availability of these restaurants is abundant.

We were only on the island three days, but it is one of those places we must return to. We are basically beach people and this satisfied all our needs and wants. Aragona Palace deserves #1 spot. We were very comfortable and the service exemplary. It was just so much fun talking with staff, from the servers to the reception staff. This hotel is highly recommended. Thanks, Luisa for all your help. I'm sorry to take so many months to write this review.

We traveled to Ischia last July and had a great time. The staff at this hotel were excellent and came in quite handy when asking for recommendations about what to do around the area after we had already exhausted the list of normal sights and sounds around the island. The hotel is centrally located at Ischia Porto and is near several bus lines to get around the island. There is a great strip of restaurants adjacent to the hotel on the Via Porto and we enjoyed several beautiful Ischian nights eating alongside the yachts and other ships. TIP: Take the elevator to the roof. Between the pool and the bar there is a staircase. Take the staircase as high as you can and walk up the hill and you will get an amazing view of the Aragonese Castle!

Great hotel in a great location. Easy access to public transportation to take you around the island as well as walking distance to the Ferry (with luggage). Amazing shopping right around the corner. Pay extra for a water view, it was worth it. The hotel brought pastries and a lovely fruit juice cocktail to our room right after we checked in, it was appreciated especially after the rocky hydrofoil ride from Naples. The room was great, very clean and modern. There was a keyboard in the room you could hook up to the TV to access the internet (very small charge). We enjoyed relaxing by the rooftop pool and looking out over the harbour although the pool was really hot (I understand it is naturally heated), there is also an indoor pool which we didn't have time to enjoy. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to be helpful whenever we had questions. We hope to return to Ischia and will definitely stay at the Aragona Palace Hotel again.

Room Tip: Pay extra for a water view and balcony it is worth it.

We spent five nights at the hotel in August with the family, and thoroughly enjoyed our experience of the hotel and the island of Ischia. We arrived by hydrofoil from Naples, with the hotel being an easy walk along the quayside from the terminal. The reception staff were very helpful throughout our stay and certainly helped us make the most of our sightseeing around the island. The rooms at the hotel were clean and well maintained, as was the general decor and upkeep of the property. The pool was the weak point in terms of facilities, however the spa service was good if not expansive. Would highly recommend both the hotel and the island, a bit of low key class for the more discerning traveller.
