Travellers' Choice
Welcome to the Grand Hotel Santa Domitilla, one of the most prestigious hotels on the island of Ponza and the whole Mediterranean coastline.Our elegant and refined common areas have a cool Mediterranean décor and our splendid gardens with their abundance of Mediterranean and exotic plants are surrounded by typical Ponza-style terraces.Two seawater swimming pools are hidden behind a mass of purple bougainvillea, and our fabulous Wellbeing Course winds between lemon trees and fox grapes to the picturesque Roman Grottos with their different temperatures (from 19 to 37°C), numerous hydromassage jets, and the exquisite Arabic style and chromo-therapeutic lighting of the Turkish Bath. Then there is the prestigious restaurant and wine bar, “Il Melograno”, that offers gastronomic delights in wisteria draped bowers.

My husband and I stayed in Ponza for five nights. It was wonderful and the staff, especially Hugo, were very kind and helpful. They gave us great recommendations and helped to book a boat to explore the island and neighboring islands. Breakfast was great each morning as was the hotel restaurant. The rooms are great and we'll kept. Pool and steam room was also a treat. The hotel was close to everything and very well kept. Highly recommended!

Stayed here for 3 nights after whirlwind tour of Rome, Florence & Venice with blackgirltravel.com (plug). Pleasantly surprised by the island of Ponza. We arrived at this covered driveway and walked up to the courtyard of the hotel. We had an awesome room with a balcony view of courtyard. Turned a/c off and let the fan and breeze do their thing. Lots of vintage touches in rooms and bathrooms and comfortable beds. The restaurant had amazing food and tiramisu (had it twice). The hotel also has a cave-like sauna with jets. The staff was very accommodating, especially with late night requests.

I found Ponza after an Italian friend recommended it - forget Amalfi coast Ponza is where the locals head. this resort is truly lovely, rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated, the grounds are extensive and lush. the food in the out door restaurant under shade was superb - and affordable. the staff - of course it is they that make a stay like this memorable - thank you to all for making us feel at home. Phillipa in the restaurant each morning was a delight. the girls on front desk with big smiles, the lovely lady who cleaned the room were all so helpful. special thanks goes to Hugo - the hardest working General Manager I have ever seen. you all made this the most special and memorable holiday of my life. Gracias! (hope I got that right?) Ciao

Hotel reception in line with 4 stars rating. Rooms 2 stars small and thin walled noisy and no privacy. Bar on pool excellent well above the rating of the hotel and competent and friendly staff. Gennarino value them more! A real gem. Restaurant poor little leadership from the Metre and poor chef: I was served roasted patatoes with fish flavours Chef did not take responsibility and blamed a young assistent Giovanni Mercurio this is very poor you should reflect on the principles of chefs : keep kitchen clean taste the food and take responsibility. Disappointed ! Hope this helps.

The Santa Domitilla is a prestigious oasis of pleasure and wellness in the historic center of the beautiful island of Ponza, close to the main street and not far from the most beautiful bays. Provided with all the comforts, the Grand Hotel will amaze you with its tranquility, the care of its rooms and the beauty of the wellness path in its “Roman caves” inspired heated pools and caldarium for the Turkish bath. The courtesy of the staff will make you feel cuddled and you will fall in love with the cuisine of its restaurant “Melograno”, rich in traditional Mediterranean dishes based on fresh fish. The continental breakfast is super and you can choose from a wide selection of sweet and savory products, many of which are made directly by the chef, fresh fruits. The cleaning and care of the locations are impeccable. The hotel also offers to its customers a shuttle service to the port, informations/reservations of island excursions, assistance for renting boats. Definitely the best place to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of the island. Marzio from Rome.
