Worked out well for us, but is quite a distance from the mainland. It is on an island, with lots of options for boats to Capri, Amalfy Coast, etc. Great breakfast, private beach, helpful staff. Elevator seemed to have continuous problems. Let people know it is remote from mainland.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is excellent in every way, comfortable, clean with very good facilities. Location perfect for exploring with beach side location and a beautiful view of the bay and castle. The staff were extremely friendly and very helpful especially Pepe!! Thank youGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Sehr gutes Hotel in sehr guter Lage"
Sehr gutes Hotel in guter Lage direkt am Meer, Zusammenarbeit mit anderem sehr gutem Hotel... 2 Thermalschwimmbäder, ein normales Schwimmbad und ein großes Schwimmbad und Lage direkt am Meer mit hoteleigenem Strand, auch für Kinder somit viele Möglichkeiten. Sehr kinderfreundliches Personal. (ist aber kein ausgesprochenes Familienhotel) Lage sehr gut […] in der Nähe der Aragoneser Burg und Altstadt, zum Hafen evtl. mit Bus erreichbar oder Taxi (ca. 15 Euro). Sehr nettes, zuvorkommendes Personal! Wir-mein 9-jähriger Sohn- und ich fühlten uns sehr wohl, kann dieses Hotel nur weitermepfehlen und komme sehr gerne wieder dort hin!

"Hotel à recommander"
Personnel aux petits soins, hotel de charme, très bien situé et possibilité de profiter des autres plages du groupe. Je retournerai avec plaisir dans cet hotel même si les chambres sont un peu petites.Genuine Expedia guest review
思ったよりこぢんまりとした少し古いホテルでしたが、しっかり手入れがしてあり、清潔感もあり快適に過ごせました。フロントスタッフの英語も流ちょうでわかりやすかったです。どのスタッフも必ず挨拶をしていくので、とても気持ちよかったです。また、子供が海でビーチチェアにぶつかって胸に怪我をしましたが、直接関係ないのにプールを掃除していたおじさんが消毒薬を持ってきて手当をしてくれました。ホテル、特にリゾートホテルはホスピタリティが重要だと思うので、その点このホテルはとても満足行くものでした。Genuine Expedia guest review
Consiglio a tutti di trascorrere qualche giorno di relax presso questo Hotel. L'accoglienza è stata favolosa: dal personale della reception al personale di sala, al favoloso barman (Vincenzo), alla cucina e il maitre, come pure la cameriera che ci lasciava le caramelle... insomma è proprio sebrato che tutti lavorino con passione e dedizione! Tutto all'altezza […] di un buon 4 stelle...Speriamo di poter tornare anche il prossimo anno! La posizione è strategica a pochi passi dal centro e una vista favolosa sul Castello Aragonese. Anche la spiaggetta (in questa parte dell'isola non ci sono spiagge ampie) è stata di nostro gradimento per non parlare delle due piscine! Tutto perfetto, quindi, se avete bisogno di farvi coccolare... accomodatevi pure all'Hotel Mare Blu! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

We stayed at the Hotel Mare Blu for 3 days in October. The hotel is located near Ischia Ponte, in the older area of the town and walking distance to the Castello Aragonese. We had a lovely room at the top floor with the views of the sea and Castello. The room was quite small and furnished simply but neatly, the terrace was large and could fit more comfortable furniture. The hotel staff was exceptional, very personable and helpful. They made our stay truly comfortable and enjoyable, provided lots of useful recommendations on places to eat, car rental, use of local buses, etc. Thank you to Veronica, Gianfranco, and Felippe for all their help! The hotel has a really nice breakfast and a lovely pool area, the weather was a bit rainy during our stay so we did not get to use the pools very much.
"Honeymoon 4 night stay"
10/16/13 Sara S Cumbria, United Kingdom
An excellent hotel on a lovely island. After 3 days in Rome we stayed here for a relaxing four nights in October 2013. We were given a superb room on the 4th floor with large balcony and large bed. The bed was comfortable, room nice and dark with shutters, plenty of hanging space,safe and a mini fridge. The continental breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice. We ate in their restaurant for 2 evenings of our stay. Nice food, 30 euros each and wine at about 25 euros. The spa is great but quite pricey 80 euros for a decent length massage, but it was fabulous. The hotel is very clean, relaxed and the staff helpful. You are provided with robes, slippers and beach towels. The pool area is a lovely sun trap, and the sister hotels pool area and beach are also very pleasant. The hotel barman Pepe is a real gent, making us very welcome and deserves a special mention. We would recommend taking some mosquito plug ins for the room, though there, we were not sure if it was the hotels or a previous guests, but we were bitten quite badly. We overlooked this as we were travelling later in the year. We would highly recommend this hotel and the island itself as a lovely destination.

Very friendly and helpful staff, beautiful lobby, bar. Excellent breakfast and the serving time span for breakfast is long. The pool is beautiful. The spa is well equipped. We rented the only room with the balcony facing in front of the hotel and we had beautiful scene of the Castle Aragonese. The hotel is situtated in Ischia Ponte, walking distance to the Castle and the main town center, shops, eateries. Fantastic experience, will return. John Franco was excellent in suggestions throughout Ischia, he should know, he lives there. He was helpful in recommending a trustworthy taxi service, Constantino, for ventures to Lacco Ameno, Negombo Beach, and Casamicciola Terme,
"Great room with a view"
08/07/13 pippa283 Sorrento
I didn't have the best start to my stay as there was a bike race on the island the day I arrived and I had to walk from the port dragging my luggage for about 30 minutes as I was told there were no buses or taxis running by the hotel. I later found out I could have caught a taxi part of the way which was frustrating. The service wasn't the friendliest at all but the room was fantastic with a great view of the sea and castle. The pool area was beautiful. The breakfast buffet was excellent and great for coeliacs as there were gluten free options - a big plus. The maid staff were lovely and always prepared the room beautifully each evening. I would say this would have been a near perfect experience had the service been friendlier and more helpful.
"Our Stay at the Hotel Mare Blu"
05/29/13 thomasdubai dubai
A truly wonderful stay at the Hotel Mare Blu. My wife and I stayed for three nights in May 2013. We have travelled widely always staying in quality hotels but this little jewel beats most of them. The Staff are exceptional. The food is is exquisite. You must go full board! As an ex Chef and Restaurateur I do know about food. The room was attractive and spotless. The hotel is relatively small but offers all the facilities that you would find in a bigger establishment. We have just booked to go back with our friends in September.

Very nice hotel, very clean, great service! We rent scooters and the hotel call the rental company and they brought our scooters direct at the hotel (no extra charge). The only negative point is their bed, they are not really comfortable...buy fairly acceptable for few nights! We had a good experience with this hotel!

Me, my girlfriend and 2 friends wanted to visit Ischia to go 'Talented Mr Ripley' scene spotting (the films early scenes were filmed there) By luck we chose the Mare Blu which is positioned on the beach where most of the scenes were set. Ischia old town is like stepping back 50 years in time, It is wonderful. The hotel is really great with its own free beach with excelllent views of the Castello Aragonese. the beach is safe, the water clear and warm. The hotel has a spa water pool which is therapeutic with jacuzzi jets. Massages are available. the swimming pool and solarium, though small is well set out with intimate areas of shade. the rooms are comfortable, tastefully decorated and the views ot the coastline breathtaking. the hotel is a really pleasant short walk to the towns main shopping and the castle. There is a brilliant restaurante 200 yards away (the O Sole Mio) on the beach with wonderful views great staff and reasonably priced. but the best thing about the Mare Blu is their staff, ever single one of them from the reception staff to the cleaners is friendly, helpful and accomodating. The 2 I remember best are Pepe and Filippo who were absolutely fantastic, both were charming and helpful. Pepe went out of his way to help us and left a really indelible impression with us. I CANT WAIT TO GO BACK and neither can any of our group.

We just enjoyed a fantastic break in Ischia in Hotel Mare Blu and we couldn't be happier. We travel a lot and mainly choose 4 star hotel but rarely we have found staff to be so helpful and thoughtful. Our room was a nice double, good size, well cleaned and with an amazing view! The telly was old but we did not have time to watch it and they don't have a safer which is the only down side. Breakfast was excellent, the best so far. We eat mainly organic food and glutin free and they had some amazing local produced jam, fresh baked bread and many other options. The SPA is very nice therefore a bit pricy but in Ischia you have many other options . We are already planning our next visit!!!
We recently spent 6 lovely days at Hotel Mare Blu, we had booked this hotel blindly, not having ever heard of Ischia before travelling there, we were unsure of what we would find. The hotel was a pleasant surprise,the rooms are not big but who is in a room while on Ischia. It is a fair walk to the port (about 15 minutes) but after an evening dinner & enjoying a gelato it didn't seem that far at all. The hotel is located on the quieter side Ischia Ponte, do not overlook the ponet side of town with much cheaper shopping & equally good restaurants. One of best meals while in Italy was at the Piano Bar O Solo O Mio a block away from the hotel. The breakfast included with the room was fantastic, the rooftop pool was never busy and you have access to the sister hotel across the street. The hotel was clean, and the staff were very helpful and nice. This was a wonderful place to stay! My only complaint, the beds could have been more comfortable but it would not stop me from staying here again....

Pros: Great location, good breakfast, clean rooms, helpful staff, nice pool. Cons: Uncomfortable beds, one, sloooowww computer in hotel, a broken-down treadmill and bike as the "gym," beach is insanely crowded and expensive to get chairs. **You can use the accommodations at it's nicer, sister hotel (Miramare Castello) down the block, which they don't tell you.**
