Hotel Continental Mare

Campania, Italy

Double Sea View room



An idyllic stay at a clifftop resort on the island of Ischia, with stunning sea views - includes breakfast and optional treatment voucher or dinner

Though lesser-known than its Italian neighbour Capri, the tiny Tyrrhenian island of Ischia offers the best of all worlds; long stretches of golden sand, thick forests, stunning gardens and legendary mineral-rich thermal springs that are famed for their healing properties.

Set just on a clifftop overlooking the Bay of Naples, you’re assured wide-reaching views at the charming Hotel Continental Mare. Housed in whitewashed villas with traditional wrought-iron balconies and arched doorways, rooms offer a real calming sanctuary. Expect simple classic decor, tiled flooring, just the right amount of Italianate design flourishes and enough creature comforts to satisfy at this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winner.

For eats and treats, the elegant restaurant showcases Italian and international fare; savour generous buffet spreads at breakfast and lunch and enjoy a la carte offerings at dinner. There are two fabulous thermal pools with temperatures averaging between 28 and 30ºC, an onsite spa and gym, and a shuttle service to the sister property, Continental Terme, for mud-based rituals.

Beach Romance Summer


Set on a clifftop overlooking the Bay of Naples, you’ll be staying on Ischia – Italy’s tiny Tyrrhenian island famed for the legendary healing properties of its mineral-rich thermal springs. The location couldn’t be more spot-on; you’re just a five-minute walk to Ischia's harbour, 20 minutes from the shops and restaurants in the city centre, and a mere 100 steps from the private pebble beach.

Must-dos include exploring the thick forest by horseback, taking in stunning views from the top of the Castello Aragonese, visiting the beautiful botanical gardens of La Mortella, and dipping in one of the thermal pools at Aphrodite Apollon.
