Lipari is such a wonderlful, friendly an clean island. Had the greatest time there. Hotel Mea is a beautiful hotel with very interesting interior. Especially I enjoyed the ceramics all over the hotel with awsome details. Because it was off season there was only a couple of customers besides us. Got the towels for the pool and the sun beds....

We loved our trip to Lipari and were delighted with our choice of hotel. Our seaview room with balcony was gorgeous and very unusual with lots of design twists and very stylish throughout. Location great and close to town centre. Breakfast nice but as with so many Italian breakfasts a little skimpy and always resent when there are omelettes on... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Mea. Our room was well furnished with an outdoor terrace; As we expected to be out for most of each day during our stay, we chose not to pay for a sea facing room; we still enjoyed the hotel’s attractive sea view from the nicely landscaped pool and from the restaurant and...

we stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and we found it very charming. The sea front rooms offer a great view of the beautiful Tyrrhenian Sea. We had a deluxe room that was nice but nothing luxurious in it. The swimming pool is nice and relaxing and the centre is easily reached by foot. The hotel staff is very... More

Great location overlooking Lipari's port, close to city centre, Restaurants and shops, but quiet and excellent view (from 1st and 2nd floor rooms. Spacious pool. Service rather laid back. Lack of free W-LAN is cumbersome.

We stayed at Hotel Mea as part of a 1 month honeymoon in Italy. The hotel was just incredible... Staff were lovely, rooms were small but really nothing else more was needed. We had a little balcony with table & chairs which allowed for washing to dy. The pool was great and had a great view.. The restaurant was amazing..... More

We stayed in hotel mea whilst travelling around the aeolian island. The hotel is very clean and well kept and the rooms are excellent even if the bathrooms are slightly small . The pool area is great with views across the town and out to sea. The hotel is ideally located for the town. Overall this is a very good... More

We had the misfortune to stay at this hotel - what a rip off. The water was Luke warm at best. When we complained they continually lied to us & every one else complaining about the lack of hot water. it was only days later that they admitted that they turn the temperature if the water low to save money....

We just returned after 3 nights in this hotel....the staff were wonderful, especially Sarah and Ben. Great recommendations for trips and general advice. Also the waitress on breakfast duty was so attentive. Rooms beautiful...really stylish. Pool lovely. One of the best and most enjoyable hotels we have stayed in. Advice: ask for towels at pool...they are available.

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
