On your first beautiful morning in the Mediterranean, sit down to a fabulous breakfast featuring an enticing buffet and freshly baked pastries, then venture out to explore the island. Take the quick shuttle trip to sunny San Montano Beach and stretch out on the sand before cooling off with a dip in the sea, or enjoy a relaxing day of taking in the island's fascinating sights. Visit the famous Aragonese Castle, built in 1438 on a rock off the coast reached only by bridge, stroll through the fragrant Gardens of la Mortella, and enjoy a leisurely hike through the picturesque Faiano Pine Forest. For a truly relaxing day, visit Sorseto Bay to unwind in the coastal thermal hot springs, or pamper yourself with a visit to the resort's fine spa, where deep massages and healing therapies will leave you refreshed and rejuvenated. In the afternoon hike to the island's highest peak, the top of Monte Epomeo, then celebrate that evening with a fine dinner at Buganvillea Restaurant. Served under the stars on the restaurant's terrace, and sip a glass of wine, relax, and take in the unforgettable view of the sea.

Reviews for San Montano Resort & Spa
This hotel has all of the big pieces of the perfect holiday puzzle: endless sea/harbour views - check; beach view - check; numerous pools for different activities - check; top class service - check; excellent quality food - check; shuttle service to the local town - check. In terms of the big picture, it's got everything. I booked this hotel heavily based upon its recent inclusion into the Small Luxury Hotels of the world listing. However, I would comment that the finer details aren't quite up to scratch with other properties of that class. The rooms are pretty and very authentically decorated - but a bit of upkeep is needed. In our bathroom there were a few cracked tiles, cheap and nasty plastic bins and little plastic trolley, the worktop around the sink was cracked and in need of replacing. Nothing at all that would ruin a holiday, but just not quite what you'd expect from a SLH place. Similarly the pool areas need some work - the stairs to the changing area have mouldy carpet on them, some of the paintwork is peeling away, and some of the parasols have certainly seen better days. Again, no showstoppers, but the finishing touches do let it down. We couldn't fault the food, service (Marco in the restaurant was fantastic), views (incredible) and range of facilities. I'd highly recommend drinks on the terrace before dinner - at this time of year (early May) the sunset takes place just before dinner service, so you get the most incredible experience before you head down to the restaurant. We would return.

We travel a fair bit as we love our trips away and this hotel in Ischia is the only place we have returned to for a second time. The San Montano Resort and Spa hotel location and situ is just out of this world, the views are breathtaking and the sunsets heart melting. The free shuttle takes you to the SAN montano beach or to the town a few mins away. This is a truly special place, if you are seeking some healing hot waters, packed with minerals for aches and pains or to rid those everyday work and life stresses, a quiet relaxing, friendly atmosphere and wonderful food (great choices at dinner) then this is the place to go - we will return again next year for sure.
It's the most relaxing place I've ever been. I was coming there with my family once a year, but now I feel a need to come there more often. It's the best place to charge your batteries. The location of the hotel is marvelous - up on the hill, you see the whole peninsula from everywhere of the hotel premises - from the swimming pools turkish hammam, jacuzzi, bar.... thermal waters will relax you, you can use some of the wonderful hotel's treatments - there are so many in the offers. Breakfast in the hotel is something that you are waiting for. The food is super quality and the view......breath taking. And the staff ...... could not be better. You get a service like in 6* hotel. The only thing you can do in this hotel is simply enjoy and relax feeling better then at home.

My wife and I visited Ischia. We had a great time. Many Italians, Germans, and Russians. Few Americans. The hotel staff is very friendly and provides great service. Really recommend the buffet on Thursday. It's like being able to sample dozens of dishes at once. As a tourist its a nice touch. The pools were lovely. When you book your room you need to check if it will have AC or not. Our garden room was very small and had no air flow unless you opened the balcony window/door. While this might work for some, it now means that others can see into your room and/or more easily hear you too. Would recommend looking at a more expensive room or at a minimum waiting for AC to be turned on in main area; central AC only. Breakfast was really good. Great service and relaxing way to start the day. Would love to come back! Highly recommend it. It's great down time!

The location is amazing, treatments at the Spa excellent ( ask for Olga) and all the six swimming pools have amazing view of the surroundings. Such a unique place. At your arrival don't miss lemontano, lemon juice and stevia, very special! The staff is efficient and nice and food just amazing. The chef Nando Porcaro is creative and very talented to mix flavors in the best way. Wherever you are you have such a wonderful view of the iconic Vesuvio or the southern coast. You will not feel happy when you have to leave.
