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

I had last stayed at the Carasco 10 years ago, and I remembered it fondly. When I returned to Lipari it was of course my first choice. The hotel is in an incredible position, quite unique, and it's pure adventure as you travel down to the very shoreline to start your ascent up the drive to the imposing building, sometimes... More

I had a fantastic stay of 10 days at this hotel while on a conference. The best thing about this hotel is the big swimming pool it offers and a private access to a tiny beach. Views from the hotel from the common areas are beautiful. The location is little bit remote, but if you are looking for peace and... More

Hands down, one of the most beautiful places I've ever stayed at. The hotel is relaxing and chill but very cool. The beauty of the hotel is overwhelming but it also felt very comfortable and not pretentious. Just secluded enough to feel like you're getting away from it all but an easy walk into town. There are many different places... More

Not enough words to express the quality of stay we experienced at Hotel Carasco. I was guiding a small group and everyone enjoyed their stay at Hotel Carasco. Location, view, service, confort. An experience to relive without any doubt. Thank you for making our passage in Lipari memorable.
