How to Get There
We spent a very enjoyable week here in late September spending our time relaxing and visiting the main places of Ischia either by walking or travelling by local bus.
The hotel is situated on the harbour and is everything you would expect, very comfortable with friendly staff. The sun-decks are on the roof with additional sun-decks above the hotel. Very comfortable with decent views over the harbour. When we were there it was very quiet but I can imagine it being quite busy. We didn't use the spa but did look in – looks very good with a thermal pool and treatment areas
We ate at the hotel each night as we were on a half board basis. We had intended to eat out a couple of times but the food was so good that there was little pint. We had four courses, a buffet “starter” followed by a starter then the main both served to the table. Finally there was a large choice of desserts again as a buffet. Breakfast was a buffet with a very wide choice of predominantly Italian fair but with a brae attempt at some English (bacon) – I never bothered as I was quite happy with the Italian offerings.
Our second trip to Ischia..Only difference was front desk..Carmen and Maria were perfect. Carmen was instrumental in helping me at the Commune..getting family records..The Aragona is perfect..the way a hotel/resort should be..will always stay while on Ischia..connected with various cousins at the bar and restaurant in a relaxed atmosphere.I think it helped that most of the staff knew my cousins..but still appreciate how well we were treated
First visit to Ischia & Hotel Aragon’s Palace.
Very typically Italy at its best.
Food in Hotel OK, Service excellent at all levels & sunbathing area good. Very warm pool.
Room spacious with excellent views of the harbour. Recommend upgrade to Superior sea view room.
Close to everything & a really great base. Lots of shops, cafes, restaurants nearby.
Food at the beach was fantastic, Euro5 for 1/2 ltr of lovely white wine - highly recommend visiting Castle Aragona only a 1/2 hr walk.
Would go back to Ischia & to this Hotel without hesitation.
Booked this hotel as a surprise for my husbands big Birthday was not disappointed. The staff were lovely and made it very special for us. We had a complimentary glass of fizz bought to our room on arrival together with cakes. The room was very comfy and immaculately clean with a terrace view overlooking the harbour. The food was traditional Italian and the waiting staff were lovely and nothing was too much trouble. Ischia as an island was lovely and definitely exceeded my expectations. Great bus service around the island and would recommend a visit to Sant Angelo. Was expecting the island to be expensive to eat and drink out but we found it very reasonable. Aragon Castle also worth a visit. Did visit Capri on a boat trip whilst we were there and although it is expensive to eat and drink out there still worth visiting. Strongly recommend the chair left at Anicarpri.
All in all a really lovely holiday and would definitely recommend this hotel and Island.
This hotel is in a great location but that is the best thing about it.
The rooms are very tired, in need of refurbishment and the outside areas particularly the pool area is old dirty and no facilities to speak of. There are broken pieces of furniture everywhere
As for the food 😩😩😩there is no imagination or variety and although the staff were all very friendly, it felt like they were on a conveyor belt .No chance to relax between courses .
Lack of relaxing area in hotel reception and bar and ridiculously expensive wine!!
Would not recommend this hotel .
