It was expensive but worth it!
The Hotel was like a palace with huge public spaces, huge vases, marble steps, statues and a grand piano or 2.
The room we had overlooked the mountains (and our balcony was the prime place to view the thunderstorm we had one evening – (it was amazing!). It had also been made up as a double – despite the fact that we had stressed, when booking, that we wanted a twin room. The receptionist assured us it would be sorted within the15 minutes whilst we were being shown around and she was as good as her word.
After admiring the colourfully tiled floor in our room we donned our complimentary dressing gown and flip flops and headed off along the corridor to the residents lift, which would take us either to the rooftop pool on the 4th floor or down to the thermal spa pool. in the basement. Decisions, decisions!
We indulged in a couple of treatments whilst there (how could we resist) – we both had a circulatory massage and a head massage – fab!
Breakfast was amazing – so much food to choose from (even 3 kinds of chocolate!) and the bread was fresh and delicious.
Although the food sounded lovely, unfortunately we couldn't afford to eat in the restaurant ((60-70 euros for the daily set meal without drinks) but the seafront restaurants were within walking distance so it didn't matter to us.
Ischia is very small so the hotel was the most important item on our agenda for a good holiday there.
