As we got to the ferry port we were collected by their shuttle service. It's a 5 minute drive to the hotel but worth it if you have luggage and it's free! The hotel is beautiful and small, definately a luxury boutique hotel with the most pritiest views. As we arrived the staff were so attentive and helpful and friendly.... More

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Mea in the suite with our two small children in June. The suite was fairly small and not particularly nice. There were brown rust marks on the floor. The bathroom was also small, there was no bath tub for our two year old and no air conditioning in the bathroom so the window... More

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights in June. We were picked up at the ferry, Check in was efficient and staff were warm & welcoming. Our room was on the small side but it was clean and had everything we needed with a nice balcony area. Only 2 pillows provided for double bed so had to request... More

Room 105 was large, airy and modern with a great shower and nice little patio with colourful bougainvillea and heavenly scented jasmine. Great location, super friendly staff and an easy walk into town. The pool has lovely views of town and the Acropoli, lots of shade and easy access. Breakfast was exceptional with lots of variety and the most delicious... More

We were so glad to find this hotel! We arrived without booking on our first night after arriving late from ferry and finally decided to stay for 3 nights. Staff was very welcome and let us eat in the restaurant even it was time for them to close. Rooms are clean, modern and the terrace/balcony with the sea view is... More

The rooms are very clean, modern and the balcony with a sea view is amazing. It's only about a 7 minute walk from the port (up hill) and from the town centre. Breakfast was also very good, with a large selection and a dining room with a great view of the sea. The staff were very helpful and offered a... More

We stayed in Mea in September 2013. The hotel is very well located, about 8mins walk from Lipari town, so easy to go into town for the restaurants/bars in the evening. We stayed in a room on the 2nd floor, looking directly over the sea, and recommend sea-view rooms (whilst we didn't have one facing the back, there wasn't much... More

Our room was spacious with a large bathroom, had a small terrace & garden--perfect for our dog; gorgeous view of the pool & sea...great foto ops!! The hotel itself is just lovely! When... More

We stayed at Hotel Mea between 5th and 11th October 2013. We had originally booked to stay for two nights but after seeing the hotel and rooms, and experiencing the service, we decided to make Hotel Mea our base while we discovered the Aeolian Islands. We were greeted at the port by the Hotel Mea driver and taken the short... More
