Sprawling spa towns, verdant scenery, picturesque villages and better beaches than Capri – that’s what you can expect from the enchanting volcanic island of Ischia, which sits at the northern end of the Gulf of Naples. Situated in a peaceful, charming Italian town, Hotel Parco delle Agavi is the perfect resort for a bliss-filled holiday.
The hotel is surrounded by parks and abundant greenery, and situated a short amble from the historic resort town of Forio and just 600 metres from the calm shores of Chiaia. The interiors are full of charming Mediterranean touches and character, while outdoors you can enjoy sweeping views of Mount Epomeo.
When you’re not cooling off with a dip in the sea, reclining in the Jacuzzi at the spa, exploring the Medieval and Baroque traces in Forio or admiring a beautiful sunset, the onsite restaurant is there to tempt your palate with fresh Italian flavours and authentic local specialities.
How to Get There
Visited for a week. Position of hotel on an extremely busy road with no pavement means walking to the beach or town too dangerous. Therefore the shuttle bus was a God send. On arrival we were allocated a room that I refused. It was cramped, old and tired with nowhere to sit out. We were allocated a second room which was slightly better as had a patio, but was very basic and dismal looking. The food is ok but repetitive and as meal time duration is only one hour got very busy and a little chaotic. The pool is nice and no subbed issues.
This hotel has no atmosphere and the staff look miserable.
I would not return.
Services and accommodation excellent, pleasant location, staff absolutely professional, pleasant experiences. Certainly recommend, if there are no unforeseen circumstances, we will definitely go on another holiday. Once again, I repeat the service and attitude of the staff at the highest level, good accommodation, pleasant environment.
We checked in on Tuesday afternoon and my friend was unwell from Wednesday night and by Sunday we had to go to the local hospital. Luckily she was OK after being rehydrated and given some antibiotics. All the hotel staff were very concerned and helpful; Angela on reception called a cab and told the driver the problem so that he could relay it to the medical team if necessary. The cab driver was also fantastic and extremely friendly and helpful, showing us photos of his children on our return trip! The room was clean and plenty big enough with two double sized beds and a lovely balcony overlooking gardens and a super walk in shower; the food was very tasty. We liked that it was a smaller hotel and it was pretty quiet and relaxing. We made the most of the pool which was a good size if you swam from end to end. We used the shuttle bus a couple of times to the market and the beach. Although you could walk, the roads are pretty hairy - very busy with no pavements. That was probably the only downside but at least we could use the shuttle bus. A supermarket a few minutes up the road was handy as well. I would recommend this hotel and would have no hesitations about going back.
A very good hotel with excellent staff and service. The food option was always good. My only problem was the location as it was very close to a very busy road and travelling to and from the local beach was very dangerous. But I would recommend the hotel itself.
This is a lovely hotel set in well cared for gardens and the rooms are single storey and perfectly adequate,kept clean,good storage and a safe.The pool was actually warm which was a bonus and you always got a sun bed.
Breakfast was outside,the food good and great coffee.The evening meal was inside so was a bit hot and not much atmosphere but the food was well cooked,a different fish every night,soups,, pasta,meat and veggie.Good local wines.
The staff were all very friendly and helpful and worked hard.
There was a courtesy shuttle bus that took you to local places which was a good idea.
Ischia is a beautiful island with lots to do and the bus stop right outside the hotel takes you all round the island very cheaply.
I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel for a wonderful holiday.
