I came here for a few days with a bunch of girl friends as part of our 10 day Sicily trip. The hotel is clean and has a very nice pool area. Our rooms have back doors which open out to the pool. Their restaurant is nice and relaxing for dinner, quite popular with visitors. Daily breakfast buffet has an... More

The Hotel Mea is a gem, with views over the sea, beautiful rooms with balconies, a great swiming pool, and a first rate restaurant. The staff are pleasant and helpful. This is certainly the palce to stay in Lipari. The only negative is that the free wifi only works sporadically in the rooms.

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.

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....
