We were able to visit during the second weekend Alberto and Arnoldo opened up the hotel after COVID-19 shutdown here in Italy. We could not wait to get back and stay at the hotel and visit the Monte family. This is our destination when we visit Ischia. The hotel room is excellent and the service is #1. We were so happy to go to Negombo Thermal Park was open, which is only about 10 minutes away - Arnoldo will take you. Breakfast and dinner are outstanding, always fresh from their garden or the seafood from the local fishermen. Don't forget to ask for a 50 minute massage from Monica. She is fantastic. Also, the lady that cleans the rooms is wonderful, and their sister Luisa, maintains the gardening around the hotel and especially has a wonderful garden on the top deck on the roof of the hotel that has a jaccuzzi and a beautiful view of the sunset and town of Lacco Ameno. The hotel is on a sloping hill on Mount Epomeo overlooking the quaint fishing village of Lacco Ameno. This was the first settlement of Greeks in 800 BC in Italy. It was called Pithecusa and there is a wonderful Museum in the town. Arnoldo can take you there, to Cassamiccola, or Ischia town for shopping. The hotel has a thermal pool below the 1st floor and is on the water is absolutely pure mineral from a spring that is one of the top 10 springs in Europe. We will return again and again for as long as we can. Thanks
The Monti family owns this hotel - Alberto and Donatella, Arnaldo, and Luisa. The room accomodations are outstanding, the thermal pool and turkish sauna amazing, the rooftop view and sundeck are relaxing with spectacular views, and the food is wonderful. We visit Ischia at least 3 times a year and always stay here. From here we can go to our favorite thermal spa - Poseidon Gardens. Also Lacco Ameno is a wonderful little town on the water with rich history. The people are wonderful. 5 stars for us.
Visited Ischia after a 50 year break and chose Villa Sirena because of its location and great reviews. What a gem! Nothing - absolutely nothing - was too much for the staff. Great service began with meeting us at the station in Napoli, transporting us to the ferry terminal, helping with luggage, tickets and seeing us onto the ferry, then collecting us from Ischia Porto and whisking us away to the hotel. Alberto or Arnaldo took us to different locations every day to refresh the memories of my teenage years, recommended local sites (including geological walks), bars and restaurants. Lovely room, delicious food (including samples of the dishes you didn't choose, just to taste), roof terrace with stunning views (even brought us pots of tea there in the afternoon), and a well run wellness centre with spa, jacuzzi and pool. We booked for 4 days and stayed for 7, each day just fabulous. We left as friends - miss them already - and can't wait to go back (& we're in Australia!).
It was a week full of miracles in amazing Villa Sirena. The owners made our stay here so wonderful, that we were more than happy. We have visited a lot of beautiful places in Italy before, but here in Villa Sirena we found everything so special, that I can’t describe it in words. The comfortable and very clean room, perfect food (the dinners were with so many dishes, that I couldn't believe at first with my eyes), the smiles of everybody around you, amazing roof terrace with luxury jacuzzi, great wellness centre - absolutely everything was perfect!!!!! It was like a beautiful fantasy….. I am already waiting for next year return to Ischia and Villa Sirena.
I've been to Italy MANY times and this was my fourth trip to Ischia for a stay. We stated at Hotel Villa Sirena in 2017 and I wrote a great review for one fabulous place; but we also stayed at this wonderful hotel this past July for 12 days. Hotel Villa Sirena is a true gem to be enjoyed on the island of Ischia in Casamicciola. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The breakfast buffet is really enjoyable and diverse: from fruits to breads, pastries, cereal, yogurts, egg omelets and fruit juice. We need to also add homemade jams. The service is quick and you can fill yourself so as to explore the island. Alberto, Arnaldo, and Luisa go out of their way in services for you. They have a drop off and pick up service from the port and all of the favorite beaches and thermal water parks of the island. Dinners were multicourse banquets. Alberto always provides you with extra courses and you could not go away hungry, even if you tried. The chef is amazing, and at breakfast, Alberto provides the menu with two excellent choices for dinner – a fish or a meat dish. They were all great – we had them all – and service was excellent. Their wine list was superb, featuring many local reds and whites. And, if you don’t finish your bottle, they will provide it again the following night. The thermal mineral pool in the hotel is a great relaxer, along with a steam room, and hot and cold stone-bottom walking pool good for circulation. The rooftop houses a hydromassage tub and lounge chairs with umbrellas and views of the sea. We had a great 12 day stay and highly recommend Villa Sirena. This was our second year in a row and we knew we were going to stay longer so we did. Once again, we cannot wait to return. P.S. They can arrange any activities you may wish to do on Ischia! We were there in July and so much going on. I love love love HOTEL VILLA SIRENA!!!
