Italian glamour in a 5 star hotel with 5 star service and 5 star facilities - perfect for honeymooners
Reviewed 1 month ago

We decided to finish our honeymoon off in style with 2 nights in a superior room with sea view at the San Montano Resort and Spa on Ischia on 13 October. Well... our stay completely exceeded our expectations...firstly the service. Exceptional - we were picked up in a slick car with equally slick driver from the ferry. The staff were warm, welcoming and of course slick when we got there and said that as we were on honeymoon they had upgraded us to a suite!! We were so surprised and over the moon - the room was absolutely stunning and we could not have spent 2 nights in more luxury. We listened to music on the Bose speakers, bathed in the hot thermal private pool, had Prosecco at the lavish breakfast - yes really! - and enjoyed evenings in the local town. We also were driven down for an afternoon on the local beach which was gorgeous. We were treated like superstars throughout our trip and it was a truly magnificent end to a wonderful honeymoon. Thank you to the San Montano Resort and Spa team - we will be back for our anniversary in a few years!

Wonderful view
Reviewed 2 months ago

The resort has a 360 panoramic view which makes it unique. We were so pleased with our room, spectacular view, the size of double room with side sea view was decent for European hotels. The only issue was the bottle of water in the room, for a 5 star resort recomand to include it every day not only on the first night of stay. Very clean, bedsheets changed on a daily bases, nice staff and helpful. They booked for us a trip to Pompeii and Vesuvius even though the trip wasn’t organized by the resort. Nice breakfast with many choices from hot dishes to planty of pastry and fruits. The restaurant has a wonderful view unfortunately we were not able to have a dinner reservation by the window, we were told these are ONLY for half board guests. The maître Luigi was so unprofessional, recomand to attend more customer service training, he did not know how to deal with us. The variety of pools and different areas of the sun beds make us feel so relaxed! The shuttle was available from morning to late evening without any reservation was taking us to the beach or down to Lacco Ameno. They also provided us the ride from and to Ischia Porto at the arrival and departure.

Amazing hotel for our honeymoon
Reviewed 3 months ago

God, I loved this hotel.

Location: On top of a mountain overlooking the sea. Blissful. The hilltop setting did mean walking into the town was hard. We are a physically fit couple and although we walked into and back from the town on 5 occasions, it was hard work. The hotel however does have a shuttle bus that will take you into the town. We just usually like to have a bit of walk.

Service: Simple wonderful from the reception, to the domestic staff, to the porter, to the restaurant staff, to the bar staff, to the lifeguard. All where faultless. They literally could not do enough for you.

Pools: The pool areas were a dream. I honestly don't think we will ever find somewhere to beat how good the outdoor areas were! Whatever time of day we went to the pool we got a lounger in a great space. There is so much room that you are never cramped. The lifeguard will put out the sunbed and give you towels.

Food: Again fantastic. A great range of choice in the morning, and really tasty and varied evening options.

Rooms: We had a partial sea view room. The view was lovely, but the room itself was a bit small. I wouldn't say the rooms are luxurious but they are certainly kept impeccably clean.

We stayed at this hotel for a week, and I think that was long enough for us. This is a hotel were you are going for relaxation, and ease, and after a while that can get boring and a bit monotonousness. There isn't much going on in the evenings, There's a wonderful pianist but he's on every night and it does get repetitive. Because of the difficult walk into town you can feel a bit trapped in the hotel in the evenings. BUT like I said this hotel isn't meant to be a high beat, high energized place. It's a place to relax, and have a good nights sleep!

So we are the kind of couple that saved up for this hotel. We don't have massive amounts of spare income and spending when you are there adds up easily. A small glass of coke is 5 euros, cocktails 10 euros plus. We spent a lot more than we intended and we really didn't indulge ourselves. I'd just be aware that to enjoy your time here, being able to buy the odd soft drink, a bottle of wine every other night, and an after drink cocktail, even when you are half board, you are going to have to spend about 500 euros plus. This hotel is aimed at people who have money. Which, of course, is to be expected but just a little warning to others reading this who might be in a similar position to us!

Such a fantastic hotel in a glorious setting

We spent a fantastic week at San Montano and quite simply you can see how it gets into the Worlds Small Luxury Hotel book. It is fantastic in terms of location facilities and food. The staff at reception could not be more helpful or friendly thank you. Mr S Lowthian

Very Relaxing Stay
Reviewed 3 months ago

We had a wonderful stay at the San Montano. It's an excellent hotel with a superb view over the Island. The staff could not do enough to help make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

The pool area is probably the best I've experienced with something for everyone. We tended to relax on the Panorama Terrace which had a view that you would never tire of seeing and small pools to cool off in. Later once the sun had moved round, we'd move round towards the bottom of the complex and the salt water pool which was also excellent. A mention to for the lifeguard who seemed to have eyes in the back of his head and was always on hand with towels and cushions.

We were half board and the food was very good. My only minor point would be that after a week it became a bit "samey". I know it's hard to produce 3 course menus for a hotel full of people every night and the menu was always different but generally variations of the same theme.

The staff were excellent, Vincenzo ensured a glass was never empty and the rest of the staff were helpful and attentive.

After meal time, the hotel was very quiet. We went to the bar a few times but only ever a handful of people there. Not sure if people retired to bed or into town, I doubt the latter as it was a fair walk with the San Montano being perched high on a large hill. I like to think I'm fairly fit but the walk up the hill was a tough slog! There was a shuttlebus during the day but I'm not sure if it operated later on.

Room was a little small but we didn't spend much time in it so not a big deal, the shower cubicles were very snug though.

A perfect hotel to relax and unwind and easy to get out and about around the Island or back on a boat to Naples / Capri etc should you so wish. Would definately return.
