On the volcanic island of Ischia, in the Bay of Naples, the Miramare e Castello is an elegant hotel with a private beach and a roof garden. With a prime position right on the sand, this laid-back retreat is all about kicking back in the Mediterranean sunshine, whether you soak up the rays by the pool, in one of the two rooftop hot tubs or on the restaurant terrace overlooking Aragonese Castle. This intimate five-star hotel has 41 guestrooms, half of which face the sea (Deluxe Rooms and Suites come with a balcony or terrace). They’re decorated in typical Ischian style, with ceramic tile floors, pastel-colored walls and black-and-white prints of the island. Dine on seafood at La Lampara restaurant up on the roof, or hit the Alysandy Space spa to swim in the heated indoor pool or to indulge in a treatment that uses products from local brand Ischia Beauty.
In the Area
The hotel is a short stroll from the island’s main shopping street, Corso Vittorio Colonna, and a 10-minute walk from the medieval Aragonese Castle. Close by, the Negombo Health and Beauty Center is a natural thermal spa surrounded by beautiful gardens on the Tyrrhenian Sea. In a volcanic gorge, La Mortella Gardens has more than 3,000 species of flora from around the world, as well as spectacular views and a waterfall. Active types can go on a 50-minute hike to the top of Monte Epomeo, Ischia’s highest peak, for superlative views of the Bay of Naples.
How to Get There
Being one of the pricier hotels of our Italian stay ($560AUD per night) we were a little disappointed in the size of our room. We had Room 209 which was not very big. it had a lovely view of the ocean but no balcony. The decor of the place was lovely. There was not much opportunity to get a day bed by the water unless we were out there to reserve a chair at dawn like everyone seems to do by putting their towel on a chair and leaving to return whenever they choose. We swam one day out the front of the hotel which was nice, but the best experiences of our stay in Ischia were elsewhere on the island. The breakfast in the restaurant each morning was beautiful and it was lovely to have the waiter remember how we like our coffee each morning without even needing to ask. That was 5 star service.
Overall - nice hotel, room a bit small, lovely restaurant and breakfast service and fabulous view.
This hotel is a great option for those visiting Ischia.....The hotel is right in the middle of the action and has the most AMAZING view of the Aragonese Castle and the gorgeous Mediterranean Sea. We stayed on the 2nd floor and there was no noise whatsoever (day or night). We had a clear, unobstructed view of the amazing castle from our balcony as well as the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea from our bed, shower and balcony. We stayed in room 205 and I am serious when I tell you it was magical. Open the door ay night and listen to the soft sounds of the ocean and combine that with the view - it's amazing. Getting there is super easy as well. We got off the boat, rented a scooter and arrived at the hotel in under 5 minutes - so figure a 5-minute taxi ride or 15 or 20 minute walk. There is an elevator if one doesn't want to exercise, but we choose the stairs. The staff are ALL fantastic and extremely helpful with things to do, places to see and restaurants to eat at. Maria Rita (front desk) was/is beyond awesome. She was always there (literally) for us and we can't thank her enough or give her enough credit. She made our stay so easy and enjoyable. If I owned a hotel in Ischia, I would steal her away!! The girls in the spa were fantastic as well. On that note, the hotel has a sister property next door with additional amenities that we had compete and free access to (thermal mineral pool,foot pool/spa etc.) The restaurant and bar staff were also exceptional. They were extremely kind, courteous and professional (and fun). Also, the breakfast is fantastic and the boys make a mean cappuccino (or 3 like we had every morning)!! They guys were great. We would (and will) stay here again anytime and I highly recommend this hotel in the absolutely stunning and GORGEOUS island of Ischia!!
Stayed at a room with sea view. Room was tiny with dated furniture. Bathroom was spacious with a nice view. Very poor sound insulation. Our bed was next to the bathroom in the next room, when the guests flushed the toilet the noise was horrendous. You could also hear everything from the next rooms. It did affect our sleep immensely. Hard bed.
During our stay there was a big birthday party with loud live music, they stopped just before midnight.
Swimming pool area was nice, there's also a jacuzzi on the roof top. You could also use facilities such as the thermal spa in their sister hotel nearby.
Good selection for breakfast, nice setting for outdoor tables, friendly and attentive staff.
Full range of Etro toiletries.
