Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Capizzo's up on the hillside above the bay of Citara, which means you get incredible views out to sea, especially at sunset. Winding stone paths thread though Mediterranean gardens to the rooms, pool and restaurant.

The hotel harnesses what Ischia is most famous for – its volcanic energy. The swimming pool is geothermal, plus the 22 pools of Poseidon Thermal Gardens are nearby - you can book tickets locally if you want to experience the full wellness potential that the islands thermal waters have to offer. 

Upgrade to half board and dine at the Capizzo Restaurant or dine à la carte outside on the terrace at the Corinthia Restaurant, open for lunch and dinner. The head chef is inspired by local produce, the landscape and islands culture, so expect regional dishes, fresh seafood and local wine.

The pretty churches and watchtower of Forio are just a few minutes’ drive along the coast – or you can stroll there via the scenic coastal footpath. There's a bus stop just 30 metres from the hotel and routes that connect most of the island, so getting out and exploring couldn't be easier. The friendly staff are always on hand to offer up advice and recommendations should you need anything. 

Transfer time: approx. 2 hours by private car and hydrofoil/ferry.

Island of Ischia

Ischia is an example of island life done the Italian way. It’s the biggest island in the Bay of Naples, laying out medieval castles, clifftop botanical gardens, sandy beaches, hot springs and lively harbour towns along its coastline.

The centre of the island is another story altogether. Here, Mount Epomeo scrapes the clouds. Hikers tackle its sloping walking trails, which wander past caves and pine-green forests. You’ll even find the occasional vineyard clinging to the rocky slopes – usually family-run affairs with swooping views over the Bay of Naples.


Pools & Beaches

The hotel has a large geothermal outdoor pool, with a waterfall and hydro massage features - it's naturally heated to 32°C, so no matter what the temperature is outside, the water is always inviting. If you fancy spending the day relaxing around the pool, you'll find plenty of comfortable sun loungers and parasols surrounding it.

Citara Beach is the nearest public beach, which takes about ten to fifteen minutes to walk to from the hotel. It's one of the biggest beaches on the island and most of it is serviced by the bars and restaurants along the coast - so if you would like a sun lounger you can pay locally to rent one for the day. Otherwise, parts of it are free, so you can just lay your towel on the sand and enjoy.

If you choose to upgrade to half board you'll dine in the hotel's Capizzo Restaurant. The executive chef serves up tasty Mediterranean dishes and focusses on the flavours of Ischia. They have a strictly zero kilometre ethos when it comes to the ingredients - so expect delicious, fresh, local meals. 
The hotel's Corinthia Restaurant has an à la carte menu and is open for lunch and dinner. The modern interior dining room has lovely views of the sea, but for the best views opt for the outdoor terrace - then you'll have the bay of Citara as your backdrop.
