Good location in a quiet area, but near enough to transport links with the rest of the island. Professional staff who were polite and did their job well. Excellent food. Good facilities, for a fairly small friendly hotel.
Excellent location. good food. spa is a great extra. almost all staff very friendly and efficinet One mmeber of staff at reception lost her temper and ranted becuase we left wet foot prints on the floor. She was correct to highlight this becuase it made the floor slippery but I do not go on holiday and pay money to be shouted at. a courteous reminder was all that was needed
The advice we got from the night porter on our first night was perfect for us. We could plan our days out that evening with his help. We would have liked to use the bar on the roof top but maybe it was closed as we might have arrived slightly off season.
Staff were excellent -always helpful and welcoming -food was good -pool was excellent, very clean and well presented with good chairs /shade Rooms were small,sea view was limited,bar area small & did not open so no evening/night social activity in hotel
The pool was very nice and our room was small but comfortable. Reception staff were helpful, although they spoke very little english. The spa baths were nice. The hotel was very clean and well looked after. Shower was luke warm and not powerful. Restaurant and bar staff were not particuarly friendly or helpful. Breakfast was average. The hotel beach is very small and is very crowded. The bar appeared to close at different times each evening and therefore could not get a drink on some occassions.
the facilities, the indoor whirlpool is awesome, the sauna...we loved it. the breakfast buffet is good we did not know about the dinner dress code, because we only brought beach wear... the food room service is not adviceable, the sandwiches we got we're dry
Wellness center room was nice but very very cold
This Hotel is in a very quiet part of the resort,staff were friendly and helpful ,breakfast was 1st class-great coffee,pool and spa facilities were good. When i arrived i was told there was a problem with my booking(which i made 6 weeks before) and they could not accommodate me for the 1 st night of my 7 night stay and i would have to stay at a nearby hotel for the 1st night,they put this down to a problem with Booking .Com.i was given a free taxi to this hotel which to my mind was not as good as Villa Durruili,though i was charged the same rate for this night as for the 6 nights at Villa Durrueli.As a way of apology i was given a free massage in the hotels' Spa.The room i was given was on the ground floor juast off of the bar area,on the website it stated that single rooms were on the second and third floor.I would stay t this hotel again but i think i would make my booking via telephone.
Paola and the staff at the hotel were absolutely fantastic and were truly focussed on providing the best customer care. The bathrooms in the rooms could benefit from a little refurbishment.
Very pleasant staff, welcoming and friendly, both in reception and in the dining room. High standards of cleanliness, and well designed public areas. We would certainly return. Disappointed that the spa was not available during our stay due to refurbishment. This may have been notified to those booking directly with the hotel, but did not appear on Bookings website
good breakfast for Italy, good location (20 min steps from main port), termal pool is free for charge, good bathroom poor gym, internet is not free
the beach is rather small
We had a very nice view from our room even though we didn't ask for a sea-view room! The view of the "Castello Aragonese" was simply gorgeous! The beach...if it can be called a beach! It belonged to another hotel, a 5*, but it was very small and the water was always washing off the sand under our sunbeds. They could do better!
My sister and I had the water front room with the balcony and it was very nice and comfortable. The uninviting look of the spa pool because the water was discoloured and rusting pipes were visible. Also, the water was tepid.
Gardens and thermal pool areas, dining room and terraces Spa treatment areas out of date and dreary, pillows on beds too hard, no entertainment, guest information only in German and Italian and pool bar and bar had no menu's on display and when a menu was found this had no prices.
The staff were great. The area is very clean.
hotel staff very helpfull and spoke good english Food was not good quality. Menu was not varied. We had Sea Bass 4 nights in a row. Room had cobwebs in corners. Bed was creaky and very hard and uncomfortable. Bathroom shower not very good - weak shower and poor rose spray. We had ants in the bathroom. Funny smell from kitchen in our room - vents connected. Balcony small for a superior room. Air conditioning did not work very well. Drinks at bar expensive. No computers available for internet access. Spa treatments expensive.
Nice views and reasonable confort standards. Good restaurant menu at reasonable prices. Hotel well located, although nothing (beach, pedestrian area, ...) is really close to it. The breakfast buffet is not at the level of a 4* hotel. Internet wireless connection was absolutely collapsed all day long.
Nice quiet location, but close to the city ncenter. Good facilities, nice garden.
Great views and location Rooms were dated for price, staff not forthcoming with information about hotel and it's facilities. Felt that for price hotel did not represent good value for money
pillows were old, no water pressure in the shower, floor were dirty, air conditioner was not blowing cold air
A very pleasant hotel at the edge of the sea in Ischia Ponte (despite Google maps who have this wrong) . I had a single room that was quite spacious as these things go. The bathroom had every necessary piece of equipment although was quite small, however the single room could be used as an extension. The bed was comfortable, there was little if any noise from the road outside and the airconditioning worked well. Service was excellent. I did not try the "spa" facilities as they don't interest me, one being male and two, being past redemption. I did eat in the restaurant, and found it a very pleasant experience, good food and placed on a extension over the sea. The "beach" is small if you want to play with the sand, however plenty of sun loungers available for those who needed them. Restaurant might have been more geared to those on half-board in that the menus didn't carry any prices. Not a great problem but you need to either watch what you are ordering, or have a deep enough pocket at the end.
the best experience at this hotel was the breakfast at the roof with a gorgeous view on Aragonese castello.. it was also nice that they offered us a room with sea view although we booked a regular one with village view, of course they charged us the same price... the beach is not good at all and generally the sea facilities even in the 4 stars neighbor hotel was better.. they have a swimming pool and thermo pool with the same beach.. but the beached are generally not that good at Ischia ponte area, we used to go to forio, lacco ameno or to the south for a better experience...
Hotel staff Facilities
I have stayed there before so the familiarity was the best part - the view is fantastic! There is a lot more you can do in the hotel, as the hotel is connected to the Mare Blu next door but did not find this out until the last day - also evening dinner used to be served out side which I enjoyed very much now this has been cancled
The hotel was delightful and staff helpful and courteous. The weather was not good .

Helpful staff. Great location.
The hotel now had satelite tv with flat screens.....also free wifi in the lobby....reception staff is very friendly. Hotel is 300 meters from the best restaurant on Ischia....O Sole Mio
Nothing really special could be mentioned Small territory - hotel is actually on the busy street of the town Ischia; very small beach - tiny beach located in between two public beaches extremely overcrowded, poor swimming facilities - you swim in between hundreds of motorboats packed in front of the beach; poor location, small rooms
Stayed in Ischia for two weeks and having now seen most of the other hotels while out and about, I would say easily Pagoda is the best located. The views are stunning and setting very picturesque. I'm sure other hotels were more luxurious but having seen where they were, I'd doubt they offered the same setting as this one. I read some of the other reviews that had negative comments about the rooms. To me it does look like there is a difference between the 'Residence' rooms and the 'Hotel' rooms. We had a room in one of the upper floors of the hotel, with sea view. i think it was classed as a 'superior double with sea view'. It was quite spacious and very clean. Basic but comfortable. No terrace on the room we got but most had a terrace.
Excellent central but silent location by the sea, nice, spacious suite with terrace to the sea, relaxed athmosphere. Good value for money. Plenty of stairs, no elevator.
We were in Pagoda hotel at the end of october/ beginning of november, so it was very quiet, which we liked. Location is perfect, becouse it´s one minute walk from the harbour and all good reastaurants are very near. Still the hotel area was very peacefull and the wiew to see was awesome. Breakfast at the hotel was good and hotel stuff very helpful!
wonderfull view of the sea, excellent service, fair price-value rate
Hotel staf was very friendly, location was very very nice.
the view very bad isolation for the noise , i feel like we all sleep in the same room
Good service, but quantity of small kids and german grandmommaz woz overwhelming. Not very suitable for good sleep, when kids start to cry early in the morning. Nope
Fantastic location. Good facilities at the hotel. The staff were attentive and friendly. Food was fantastic!
The Spa Termal Swimmingpool and the architecture. There was not lift and we stayed at the 2nd floor.
Extremely clean, very helpful and professional staff, and great food. Spa was only open during the morning.
Very clean facilities; responsive, helpful and supporting staff; meal is very good. The hotel is very close to the beach with a real sea-view.
Sea view. Light,airy rooms and communal areas.
Excellent views from the room, if a little far from the beach, but generally a great location on the island. Food was excellent and staff were helpful, albeit with limited English. The bed was as hard as a piece of plywood. Had to use spare blankets under the sheets to make it tolerable.
Friendly and helpful staff, nice rooms, good spa Dinner could be served outside
It was friendly staff. Excellent dinner,good SPA. Nothing
The hotel is beautiful and in a great location to get to the port of Ischia and the rest of the island. There are lots of local restaurants and easy access to the sea front, really lovely. The age of the other occupants was generally in the 70's or older, so don't expect lively evenings.
I liked the sea view and air, hotel architechture, design and decor, spa and pools, restaurant and the amiable waitors, food, plants, homelike atmosphere tv programs were only in German and Italian, internet access was provoded only in the common area with the queues to the only note-book, I particularly dislikeed rough soldgers' blankets on the bed
The heated pools were nice, breakfast was ample and varied. The water from the faucets is all really excellent- we wondered if it was also thermal water. Nice walking distance from Panza and Sorggeto. Overall good value if you get a good price on a room. (We stayed in an economy room during low season). Our room was across the busy street and up the hill; kind of an inconvenient walk for using the pools. Our room had ants, but the staff did say they would take care of them.
The ppol, spa, and staff were great. The rooms were not up to 4 star standards so I felt a little mislead. The rooms were not attached to the more modern hotel.
How the resturant and staff treatd us. We like atmosphere of the resturant over looking the bay. We had some problems with ac in are room and we complain about it and they were unable to fixed it.
very beautiful views of the ocean. Breakfast was nice. staff was friendly. The shower doors in room 825 are broken. Water floods the floor as a result of shower doors that do not shut completely. This was only a minor set back. Towels helped here.
Service at San Montano was among the best I've ever encountered. From the front desk staff to housekeeping to the servers to the drivers to and from the port, everyone was immensely helpful, professional, warm and dedicated. The location is stunningly beautiful - you can swim in one of eight (!) different pools of varying sizes and temperatures and see this beautiful corner of the island from up high. The entire hotel/spa is spotless but not sterile. The rooms are beautifully appointed with high-quality amenities, and the decor is warm and inviting without being cliche. You will want to stay here forever.
Excellent thermal water pools, great view from the window and the balcony, the personell of the hotel was nice to give us an excellent room with a great view. Special thanks to Marco the driver of the hotel shuttle bus which took us from the hotel to the beutiful sand beach. He is very nice. Some of the restaurant personell is not nice enough (not all). The price of the dinner served is too costly - 40 euro per person.
The location is fantastic, the view of the sea from the room was perfect. Quiet hotel, not on busy streets, mid age customers, no kids - a perfect relaxing place. The outside pool with thermal water at 36 deg. Was extraordinary!
The staff were extremely helpful in translation issues that I had with my Italian cousins who did not speak English. It was October and the air conditioning has been turned off, but in my opinion it was still too hot to be without air conditioning.
Rooms are well cleaned. I really appreciate efforts of cleaning staff. Most of the staff speaks good English and sometime German. However, a lady at the reception does not speak good English and was not helpful, because she tried to avoid answering my questions about transportation. Although it is well maintained, the building is old and room is not so spacious.Bed and TV is small. Air-conditioning is old and not strong enough. I have to say that the hotel fee is too expensive even with special discount. The town is not so lively as the hotel and I would recommend this hotel only who wants to experience a stay in a old resort. All over the site, including pools, smells bleach.
Quite clean, nice. The young gentleman at the reception was very helpful and nice. The hotel is equipped with SPA and swimming pools, but we didn't use it, because no one from the staff told us that what is provided in the hotel. We learned about it only before leaving, and all the facilities are working until 19.00 with a break from 13.00 until 17.00. It's very inconvenient. The biggest problem is the lady at the reception, she doesn't understand English but pretends, that she does and it causes misunderstanding. When we asked her about the hotel and the Island, she replayed that we can find all the information in the Internet. It was first time (and we travel a lot), when personnel couldn't help us. The hotel is not on the shore, so you have to go to the beach, which is across the road. The evening meal in the hotel (if it is not included) is very expensive, you'd better eat outside.
all was really great! nothing
Beautiful grounds and access to beautiful cove with refreshing water Service was outstanding at pool and at restaurant Very responsive to all requests. Breakfast was very good. Rooms were a bit cramped. Although could be considered a plus you were isolated to rest of island We did rent a car one day. Some trees should have been trimmed that blocked sea view from our room.
Fantastic location, good facilities, Difficult for people with problems walking - you had to call a golf cart (of which there were only 1 or 2 to get anywhere)
Beautiful resort, with gorgeous views. Staff and service were impeccable. Wish we could have stayed longer. A lot of steps.
