We have very recently returned from a one week’ s stay at this charming Hotel ideally located between the Old Town, Aragonese Castle, and the newer Marina area with all its restaurants, Cafe’s and boutique shops.
On arrival the Hotel reception were very friendly and attentive always ready to give advice and answer a query, even though at times there were language translation problems with an odd member of staff, we were in Italy though and to me it just added to the majical experience of being in Italy.
The room we were given was spacious, air conditioned, well appointed and had a large balcony to watch the sunsets from on an evening, our bathroom had a walk in shower, bidet, toilet and modern basin all very clean and functional. The TV in the room now has BBC world and Sky news if you were so inclined to want to watch TV.
We found the restaurant to be excellent with an amazing choice of anti pasta and main courses every night, the fish being especially fresh and tasty which my wife only missed once whilst I found the Rabbit, Steak and puddings delicious. Breakfast was continental but again had a wide choice, with strong tasty coffee that set us up well for our days activities.
The pool area terrace bar was idyllic whilst the pool itself was very clean and refreshing to swim in or just cool down in whilst taking in the rays and reading a good book.
We had a lovely time at the Hotel were treated extremely well by all members of staff and Mina the Thomson’s rep was always charming, helpful and keen to assist with any information and tips she could on where to go and what to see on Ischia.
The Island itself was atmospheric and scenic with old world charm alongside the modern Marina area with its restaurants bars and expensive yachts to look at and dream if only !!!, all in all we will be going back to the Villa Durrueli and Ischia hopefully very soon.
