We stayed in this lovely hotel for one week in August with our dog. The view from the room was wonderful, the food was fab, swimming and sunbathing on the pergola was sublime, BUT the most wonderful thing about the hotel was the staff. Marco and his team were great, nothing was too much trouble and we had a thoroughly... More

We stayed here for a week in May and found the location of the hotel to be ideal. Set into the cliffs above the sea, it is quiet but within easy walking distance of the hydrofoil port, the bus stop, the centre of the town with its cafés, restaurants and shops, and the nearest beach. We had a superior room... More

A spectauliar place. Hotel Umberto a Mare is not just a hotel. It's love, beauty and peace. This made our trip to Ischia well worth it. Sitting under a church over the sea the hotel is part fortress, part gourmet restaurant, part seaside paradise, all unique. Marco greets you in a very casual, friendly, Italian way. He was so nice...

The hotel is beneath a church near the center of town, it's absolute selling point is the view out to sea and on the mountain that dominates Ischia. They have a breakfast terrace that makes for the best start of the day you can wish for. Breakfast by the way is very simple, but perhaps the best we had all... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Piccolo Albergo sul mare di Forio, in attività dal 1936, da sempre meta fissa di chi ama sfuggire i posti di massa ed è alla costante ricerca del “luogo incantato”.Il modo giusto per descrivere questo splendido luogo è: “Albergo nel mare” in quanto occupa una posizione unica nel suo genere. Poggiato sulla scogliera di pietra lavica che protegge la famosa Chiesa della Madonna del soccorso dai marosi, è indicato in tutte le guide come posto unico per godere dei tramonti più belli dell’intera isola e del celeberrimo raggio verde.Il piccolo albergo, sole 11 camere, tutte ….nel mare, al suo interno è dotato anche di lido privato con discesa in mare, solarium attrezzato e docce di acqua dolce, ad esclusivo utilizzo dei soli Ospiti di casa. ... more   less
