A charming clifftop Ischia hotel in classic Italian style, with a sun terrace and breathtaking bay views - includes breakfast

The Lowdown

Hotel La Palma is located in the historic centre of the elegant town of Sant’Angelo, on the blissful island of Ischia. The hotel stands in the heart of the town, just a short walk away from the beaches, restaurants, cafes and shops.
Decked out in classic island style, with summery pale blue and pearl white indoors and out and classically chic arched windows and doorways, this almost retro Ischian holiday pad will bring out your inner 1960s Italian movie star in no time. Potted plants spill out of the pillared walkways onto the pretty tiled sun terrace, complete with comfy wicker armchairs, a statuesque palm and gorgeous views of Sant’Angelo’s port and rugged peninsula.
Expect freshly caught fish each day in the restaurant, alongside traditional local dishes, Neapolitan cuisine and nationwide Italian favourites. The hotel’s modern wellness centre lures you in with its long list of health and beauty treatments, ready to buff you into tip-top Italian island shape.
Hotel La Palma is part of the Tropical Thermal Park complex, which enables all guests free access to the park where they can enjoy its variety of swimming pools and saunas that overlook the striking bay.

Amazing hotel
Reviewed 2 years ago

The hotel is located in the heart of the town, just few steps away from everywhere (beaches, restaurants, cafe, shopping and so on).
The rooms are super clean and comfortable. The service is simply outstanding. You can see when people care about you.
The hotel also has a Thermal Park just few minutes away with several swimming pools and all kind of treatments you can wish.
I definitively recommend this place and I wouldnt trade for any other place on the island.

Picture perfect location

La Palma is an excellent hotel in one of the most idyllic and picturesque locations in Ischia. The whole area is pedestrianized so very quiet and relaxing. The area does have some rather steep hills. A taxi driver at the bus terminus in Sant' Angelo phoned for an electric taxi (golf buggy type of vehicle) to take us to the hotel which cost 13 euro but was worth it for the experience. The staff were all very friendly and the waiters often sang and smiled as they served your meals. The food was of a high standard and there was plenty of it. Too many courses for me to cope with! The dinner menu is in Italian and German which is challenging if you don't understand either. When we were given the dinner menu at breakfast time we used google to help translate the menu into English! Guests can access the Tropical thermal garden with its 10 pools which was excellent. Remember to take your flip flops, bathing cap and towel with you when you visit or purchase them when you get there. Water taxis are also available to take you to Sorgeto Bay or Maronti beach. I would highly recommend this hotel and hope to return at some time in the future.

Unforgetable holidays

Hotel La Palma is situated in the most beautiful part of Ischia, San Angelo. The place is not suitable for people with limited walking possibilities as all the ways go up and down. However, I can recommend it to everybody else who likes local atmosphere and quiet places. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly making you feeling like at home. All rooms have sea view. Food is very tasty. 20 minutes of walking takes you to natural thermal spa Tropical, definitely worth to try.

Holiday in paradise

the room a bit small but comfortable and clean but the last minute booking did not allow a choice.Very nice hotel, not suitable for those who have difficulty in moving owing to stairs, in a great, quiet location, very friendly staff, great food. Close to restaurants and bars and a small but well-equipped beach is located a few meters away

Il Fortino-sister hotel to La Palma--a a peaceful paradise
Reviewed 10 years ago

Hotel La Palma is a fabulous, popular hotel in the quaint historic fishing village of Sant' Angelo, the most beautiful part of Ischia. Ischia is a destination still undiscovered by Americans, but is a favorite of Germans, Austrians and Italians. Associated with La Palma is the Hotel Il Fortino; I have stayed there twice once in 2006 and most recently in July 08. Il Fortino is situated above the La Palma and is about a 5-10 min walk up the hill. Don't go to Ischia unless you are very ambulatory; the walk up to Il Fortino is for the fit only. During my stay, very few people were at Il Fortino, which meant that after a delicious breakfast was served by genial hostesses, there is no one at the hotel. Lock your room and take your key. If you need anything, ask Nicola at the desk at La Palma. You will be offered a menu in the morning to choose your 5 course dinner served at La Palma (only in Deutsch and Italiano). The entertainment is a singer/guitar player (Dominic?) who will blow your mind with his voice. In America he would have stacks of CDs for sale and you would buy them! Your stay at either hotel will include entrance to the "Tropical" terme, generally a cost of about 16 Euro. But don't jump too quickly--my lunch there was 22 Euro! Delicious, yes, but I have never spent nearly $40 US on a lunch. The Tropical is really a bit dilapidated, and I would recommend going to Aphrodite instead---it is close by, much more beautiful, fabulous thermal mineral pools, and extraordinary treatments. As an alternative, you can walk down to the port and pay 3 Euro for a taxi boat to the beaches along the way. But while you are at either hotel, don't miss scheduling a physiotherapy session with the enchanting and infinitely talented Alfredo. You will never regret spending 60 Euro on this man.
Il Fortino is a peaceful, high class hotel, gorgeous views, beautiful rooms, a breathtaking experience which will make you feel like you own the village of Sant' Angelo. Go there if you want a few days of peaceful heaven between your action-packed trip to southern Italy.
