Aragona Palace Hotel & Spa

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel deserves it's 4* rating. The rooms are great, all the staff were delightful, the food delicious and the position on the harbourside could not be bettered! The spa treatment I had was excellent, both thermal pools made for relaxing lazy swims.The temperature in late April was just right, sunny and warm but not too hot. The island is geared up for tourists and I should think gets very busy in the summer.

I don’t give many 5’s, but this is close. Depending on what you’ve paid(but we got a great deal), this hotel has loads of pluses. Rooms ok, beds a bit hard. Great location, close to good Restaurants. Breakfast ok. Thermal pools-magnificent. Staff-superb. If you get this at the right price, it’s a steal. A bit of investment on. The top terrace and this would be a really lovely hotel

We just returned from a 3 night break at the Aragona Palace Hotel. We arrived by Hydrofoil from Naples and when you get of the boat the hotel is over to your left about 5 minutes walk away. It's in a nice location overlooking the port. The bus station is 5 minutes away. We were a family of 4 and had 2 rooms on the first floor overlooking the harbour. Nice clean traditionally furnished rooms with a view, large TV, mini bar, robes and slippers etc.. but we found it really noisy, we were more or less above restaurants and bars and when all these closed groups of loud teenagers congregated just in front of hotel on scooters etc and didn't go til 4am. The reception staff were fantastic though and moved us to the back of the hotel on the 2nd floor the next day. Other negative were the beds, very hard beds, as is often the case in Italy, so never slept well and glad we were only here 3 nights. On the positive side, the staff were all fantastic and friendly couldn't do enough for you. Breakfast was also very good, great choice of breads and pastries, some fresh fruit and cooked items. Great coffee. There is a nice rooftop pool which we didn't use as weather wasn't great. We used the Thermal pool in the spa area and sauna etc. There are a nice selection of restaurants and bars nearby. You can walk along Via Roma just around the corner where all the shops are and follow that all the way to the Castle which is about 30 minute walk. We used the buses 1.50 EUR and went all round the island. The town of St Angelo is pretty. We also visited the Mortelli Gardens which are lovely.

Visited this hotel in June 2017 for 8 days. Had a great stay and the hotel is in a fabulous location, lots of restaurants to choose from in the Port. There are lovely beaches about a five minute stroll away, the bus terminals are near by and just a short walk lots of shops and supermarket. The room was nicely decorated and we had a balcony which overlooked the port with great views. The pool area was relaxing after a day out exploring. I didn’t get to is the spa facilities unfortunately so cannot comment on that. There was a good selection at the breakfast bar and you could either sit in the restaurant or take it outside on the he terrace. It was a lovely hotel and I enjoyed my stay.

Located in the centre of Ischia overlooking the port it’s a great base for exploring the island (it’s a small place, buses are cheap, don’t need a car). Clean room with attentive housekeeping, ok breakfast. Good inside spa, used more than expected, enjoyed the pool and treatments. Could tidy up the area around the roof pool a little (it’s not bad, great views but a little tired) The hotel is in the buzz of the port - we enjoyed the liveliness of the area, busy but not too noisy. Adjacent on the port side are a dozen or so restaurants, we tried 5 or 6 across lunch and dinner. All pretty similar, not fantastic but enjoyable. We started to learn the best were the ones with the most engaging sales patter - they just made more effort. And Ischia biancolella wine is very drinkable! Overall a great hotel to enjoy the island from and just a few hundred metres from the fast ferry terminal.

I have read some excellent reviews on this site with which I agree. The two thermal pools were enjoyable and a novelty for me. Temperature varies daily between low 30's to low 40's ( 40's was a bit too hot for me). the local high street consists of many small boutique shops. Almost no cars in the high st which was inlcuded with many flower tubs and small oleander trees. The tv had many Italian channels. No english. 64 was Super tennis and we enjoyed watching the major tennis tournaments. The staff were all exceptional and were very kind and attentive. Lovely Italian people. The curative pedicure was exceptional...better than our local. Our lovely room with a view was sadly and annoyingly let down by the poor single mattresses! Why ? We asked for one to be changed, which it was, however the replacement soon deteriorated for some reason. Disrupts ones sleep.

My daughter and I spent 4 nights at this hotel. It did not disappoint. From arrival to departure, we could not fault the hotel. We were shown to our room and greeted with 2 aperitifs and a selection of Italian cakes, in our room. The chambermaid was unobtrusively efficient and tidied our room every day. The hotel was spotless in all areas. The complimentary breakfast was varied and offered both hot and cold, savoury and sweet selections with freshly squeezed orange juice. The staff were always friendly and helpful. We used the Spa facilities several times and availed ourselves of a couple of therapies, which were delivered very professionally. I cannot comment on the restaurant as we didn't use it, but a 3 course a la carte meal was 30E and the food looked delicious from what we saw. Slight downside The hotel has no parking and we had to pay 10E per 24 hrs at a car park which was 300m away. The thermal pool on the roof top was too hot to be comfortable, but upon mentioning this, the temperature was turned down. I would not hesitate to stay here again. The hotel's location, about 10m away from the edge of the harbour was quirky and there was occasional noise from the ferries which regularly use it. If you want complete peace and quiet, then this hotel is not for you, but it didn't affect us at all.

Stayed as a couple for a week at the beginning of September 2017. The hotel is located only a few yards from the harbour and is close to shops, bars and restaurants. Hotel is badged as 4 stars but I would rank it as 3 stars. Our room was on the port, comes with a balcony and a view of the harbour. Very beautiful and amazing view. But many times during the day. It was noisy and ferries exhausting fuel not good to smell or inhale. We had to close the shutters. The room is very big, but I don’t see a 4 star at all. The bed mattress was uncomfortable. The bathroom was very big but the shower is so small. The first day, the lady at the front desk gave us a map with details of what to visit. They are all nice and help us when we had some questions. The breakfast was excellent with plenty of cakes, pastries, brioches, cold meats, eggs and big selection of fruits. A juicer to make fresh juice was so good. The dinner or the supper was good, but was lacking of vegetables. The staff was very nice and polite. You are assigned a table for the whole duration of your stay and you end up sitting next to the same people every day.

The location, Ischia Porto, is perfect, close to bus stop to get to the beaches. There are plenty of restaurants in the area but I preferred, by far, the restaurants in the Ponte area which is only a 15 minutes' walk, I was offered a room that was somewhat grubby, so I asked to be changed and luckily, I was given a much better room, with great view of the harbour.. The two women receptionists were wonderful, friendly and offered lots of advice and information, always with a smile. The room was nice enough, somewhat dated, but large and comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful, though the restaurant itself lacked charm. Nonetheless, I would stay at the Aragona Palace again.

This was by far the best hotel my wife and I have visited. We were a family group of eight and the staff could not be more helpful and concerned with our enjoyment. From check in, to the comfortable room, to the rooftop pool, the balcony overlooking the harbor, the SPA and massage facilites, to the wonderful array of choices for breakfast. Oh, and the bistro was cozy and friendly also. We truly enjoyed our trip to Ischia and the Aragona and would suggest to all.
