We chose Lipari as an ideal base to tour the Aeolian Islands, and it lived up to it's promises. Lipari is a venerable town with an amazing range of old streets and alleyways. The Hotel is a 15 minute walk from the main ferry port (but only 5 mins from the old port where the fishermen and boat trips go... More

Noise from people walking or stopped for conversation, motor scouters were continuous until late at night. The air conditioning system... More

We rented an apartment in Lipari that was affiliated with this hotel. We were offered a discount at the hotel restaurant that we thought we should take advantage of. What a mistake! Who would accept tinned clams in spaghetti alle vongole in Italy? Awful, awful, awful. Don't go .

We stayed at the Giardino Sul Mare for our honeymoon. The location of the hotel was good and we had a nice balcony overlooking the sea. The pool was well kept with an option to sunbathe by the sea. The room itself was very basic . All looked in desperate need of a makeover and the shower was like a... More

We booked a garden view room as the supplement for a sea view was pretty... More

A really lovely 3 star hotel. Fantastic situation near town centre and boats/ferries. On cliffs above sea, worth the extra money for sea view. Swimming pool terrace looks over sea and steps down to sea with some loungers . Lots fish in sea and they like to eat bread!! Rooms more than adequate, large balcony. Excellent food with large choice... More
