Friendly and helpful staff. When they saw we had brought our own nutella for breakfast they made certain that a 5 kilo nutella jar was purchased the next day. Small things like this happen all the time which is appreciated. Pool is clean and nice to swim in and the common areas are very clean and nice. Room are a... More

First of all many thanks for everything to Rodolfo. We stayed seven nights at the hotel. Room was always clean and very well equipped: TV, comfortable bed, fridge, balcony and airconditioner. There was a bidet in the bathroom. But telling the true the shower was small a little bit. Breakfast was delicious. There was a big pool in the garden.... More

A real surprise. We had chosen to stay 2 nights on the Volcano Island because of our wish to experience an active vulcan on our round trip on Sicily. It was a little random that we found this nice, little hotel. We felt warm and friendly service from the first moment, when we where picked up in the harbor. Our... More

Very good hotel with an excellent pool in the quiet part of Vulcano. Free pick up service from the port. Very good diner and breakfast and early enough to catch the morning boat to Stromboli. Good access to the hikes on the island.

We have just returned from another wonderful stay at the Orsa Maggiore in Vulcano. We've been coming to this lovely family owned hotel for a number of years and over that time have witnessed many improvements - a lovely swimming pool, new dining area, room upgrades, Wifi, etc. Meanwhile, the warmth of our welcome by the family, the superior service...

We loved Orsa Maggiore. They picked us up upon arrival and since then everything went really well. Basic but clean room, lovely view from our small balcony. We also enjoyed the swimming pool. Staff is professional and very friendly at the same time, they match politeness with lots of smiles. We always had dinner at their restaurant and we couldn't... More

We came over here for the last two days of our trip. Previous hotel in Lipari was also a three star and excellent, this hotel was not our first choice in vulcano but it was advised to us from the Travel agency as a good substitute from out first choice. Normal room was booked as superior was not available, Air... More

Overall the hotel is quite nice. The rooms are neat and both the refrigerator and the air conditioning worked reasonably well(which is not the case in all hotels in Sicily) Some of the rooms are in separate bungalows with have little patios which are perfect for a bit of quite relaxation in the shade. The hotel further has a spacious... More

My husband and I, together with friends, visit this family run 3 star hotel once if not twice a year for a break from the routine of our lives. We have been doing this for over 10 years. If you are looking for a complete rest then this is the place for you. The Islands are magnificent, but this hotel... More
