We have just left a week stay at Hotel Grifo on Ischia. On arrival I must confess to being a bit underwhelmed as the hotel is up an extremely steep hill ( we like walking but the hill to the hotel in the heat is like climbing a mountain!) about 5/10 mins drive from the Port. We had been squashed into the small shuttle with another group who had come on the same ferry , due to this my husband damaged his knee. On arriving at our junior suite , it was quite sparse and although it had small garden it wasn't private and was in the shade. We mentioned this to Reception and they quickly got ice for my husbands knee and arranged a change of room the next day to another suite (room 102) still no private garden but a more pleasant room but was still quite sparse ( plastic cups etc) but much better. We did actually try to change hotels due to the location but decided it was better the devil you know and stayed put. At the end of our week we didn't want to leave and were so very glad we stayed . Compared to the other 4* hotels we saw on the island Hotel Grifo is spotless and welcoming . Due to its distance away from town it wasn't noisy but the hotel shuttle is excellent running at frequent intervals morning and evening . The best thing about this hotel without question is the staff- the restaurant is efficiently run by Antonio the Maitre-de and although we didn't have the set menu as it was €35 per person each night but we did eat from the a la carte menu several times and were really pleased with the food and service . Breakfast was quite basic but enough for us. Antonio was so very helpful as was the lady who covered on his day off. I must mention a couple of the reception staff who also went above and beyond their roles , Nico who was lovely , he also drove the shuttle for us a few times even when it wasn't a rostered time and we needed a lift , the same goes for Michalangelo - so helpful. There is another lovely lady receptionist with curly hair who was also lovely. The person who seems to hold it all together is Vicky the incredible receptionist , she is fluent in English and she is literally the person who sorted out every problem we had during our stay - she arranged for ice for my husbands damaged knee, she arranged our change of room. She helped us arranging our transfers home and was completely brilliant when a boat hire man ( will write a separate review) had dramatically overcharged us - she rang him for us (twice) and translated our complaint and ending up getting us a fair fee. She was welcoming, patient , efficient, knowledgable and exceptional at her job. I therefore give Hotel Grifo top marks !
This was our second visit to Ischia and Grifo Hotel. The boutique hotel is ideally located between Ischia Porto and Casamicciola. The staff are very welcoming, attentive and professional at all times. The rooms are very clean. In the morning you wake up to blue skies and bird song from the nearby national park. Kick off your day with breakfast . Then enjoy the gorgeous pool, go to one of the beaches, explore the island or go further afield. Enjoy lunch or dinner at the hotel accompanied by a local wine. We cannot wait to visit Hotel Grifo again.
Grifo Hotel was fabulous! We spent 5 nights at the hotel and enjoyed every minute. Beautiful views, extremely clean and excellent service. We enjoyed the pool and other facilities and took advantage of the free shuttle service til Ischia and Casamicciola provided by the hotel. It was Heaven on Earth! We will definitely be back!
The hotel is found at the end of a wooded trail, it is beautifully designed to give outside space to all the rooms and has its own spa with volcanic waters. The outside pool is a jewel set in the middle of the hotel, there are loungers around the pool and 3 other levels to enjoy the sun and the views including a roof Terrace with spectacular views.The rooms were immaculate and our junior suite was very spacious. The restaurant serves great fresh local food which is complemented by excellent local wines. The staff make you feel incredibly welcome and the free run into town and pick up is great especially as it is a steep uphill return.
My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful and relaxing week at the Grifo Hotel & Spa. We had the Junior Suite with garden looking out onto the Bay of Naples. This was our second visit and everything about our stay was top-class. The gardens were perfect and the décor so well chosen it was simply a triumph of understated style, All the Staff were welcoming and did all they could to make sure our holiday was perfect. The spa treatments left us feeling twenty years younger. In particular our thanks go to Vicky, Pina and Nico at reception; to Antonio as matre de hotel & Enzo the chef for taking excellent care of our meals; and to Mr Grifo for knowing what makes a hotel perfect. A truly luxurious stay.
Beautiful Hotel in a hillside location overlooking some spectacular views of the sea. A little off the beaten track but never a problem as there is regular shuttle service to take you to the main port and bus station. All the staff very friendly and helpful . We stayed on a half board basis and the food was varied , plentiful and delicious. Room exceptionally clean and spacious . Lovely outside areas to top up the tan and relax. Would love to back to beautiful Ischia and this Hotel .
the receipt was great. Very welcome andgood friendly staff.Very clean rooms. Good breakfast. Dinner was not very good.The spa was good. The shuttle service was very good and you cab always ask for more rides. The distance to Ischia town is to far bij foot but the shuttle bus bus from Grifo was verry good
What a wonderful stay it was for my husband, daughter and I...and ever since we came back we all dream of going back again! The Grifo hotel is located in a quiet, charming environment and quickly feels like home because of the beautiful, spotless accommodation and landscape, kindness of the entire staff and owners, delicious meals and the uniqueness of Ischia. Ideally located to do day-trips and a soothing, restful place to come back to after a day at the beach or wandering in villages of the island.
My husband and I returned to the Grifo after our wedding in September for a few days' relaxation, and it could not have been better. We were greeted warmly by the team and welcomed back, and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. We arrived to the port and were met by the hotel car after calling them to let them know our arrival time, and we used the car service most evenings to go down to the town for dinner. Our room was large and comfortable with a great view from our patio. Breakfast was excellent with a great variety to choose from, and we also enjoyed lunch each day during our stay. We look forward to a return for our third visit in the future!
