My husband and our two daughters (ages 7 and 9) spent 6 days here in July. It was the photo on their website that sold me....such a stunning location, complete with pool for my girls. It did not disappoint. The owner, Christian, is incredible. Our Italian is minimal, so thankfully his English was excellent! And he could not have been... More

This is an exceptional hotel that is way underrated by tripadvisor. It is a nice walk from the city to here, they also have shuttle service to and from the marina (where the hydrofoil drops you off). The hotel is located on a beautiful property! I actually dined at the hotel with my girlfriend and was pleasantly and the food... More

This family owned an operated hotel is truly a hidden gem. The dinners at the hotel are better than the restaurants in Lipari. And it comes with an amazing breakfast buffet while you eat overlooking the beautiful blue waters. The rooms are comfy but you hardly spend any time in them because we took a ferry to Stromboli island one... More

We had the pleasure of staying at Carasco which boasts a uniquely beautiful cliff top position, the sea lapping at the rocks below and hills behind make for a tranquil setting. This hotel is not isolated as the stunningly beautiful and historic town of Lipari is only a 10-15 minute walk away. . We had an Exclusive room which from... More

Remarkably good hotel for the price, superb setting, extremely helpful staff across the board, even invited to join in with a staff member's birthday celebrations. Only 10 minutes walk from the centre of Lipari but with a free shuttle if ones feeling a little weary. Good pool, good local walks.

I've never experienced something like this. Weird animals in the shower in a 4 star hotel. The island is wonderful, old style Italy, amazing. The hotel is dirty, no internet in the room, animals in the shower. Never again.

This family owned and operated hotel is a TRUE hidden gem in Lipari Italy. The beautiful hotel hugs the whole side of a cliff and has panoramic views of the harbor and ocean from your balcony! The fresh salt water pool which is filtered freshly throughout the day, or go swimming right in the beautiful crystal clear waters below. The... More

Just as we were enjoying breathtaking views from the terrace of the Carasco, the most beautiful boat anchored at the hotel... and suddenly stars coming on to the terraces of the pool; Kate Moss, Fergie among other beautiful friends... we were absolutely taken how this quiet hotel, was welcoming such celebrities with no fuss, just like anyone else!
