Great setting in a working vineyard. Very private. only 18 rooms so very quiet. The Rooms are great if you get a junior suite or larger. We stayed in a standard room one night at end of visit so we got to experience both the Junior suite and standard room. the Standard room was too small for our liking but... More

My sisters and I recently had a couple of days in Salina at the Capofaro resort. The rooms are fantastic. The room provisions, cleaning everything all amazing. The reception staff especially Jessica was brilliant. The pool space/area is just great...loved sitting on their lounges relaxing in the sun... I had the best gnocchi I have had in the Aeolian islands... More

The service level at the Capofaro is tops and especially unusual in the Aeolian Islands. The spot is fantastic and both near and remote. The views are fantastic and the pool is most refreshing. The food is good, though I would not say quite up to what it is billed up to. Again the front office staff is unbelievable and... More

The view are breathtaking, insuperable location. Great tranquillity, very good restaurant, very beautiful swimming pool and lounge bar. If you want silence and beauty, look no further. This is...

We stayed for two nights on our trip to a few islands in the Aeolian archipelago. The setting is really pretty with a great vineyard feel. The lighthouse, the pool, the different bungalows surrounded by prickly pears and Bougainvillea. The two things that made us happiest though were the restaurant and the service of all staff in the resort. Young... More

WOW! I am typing this whilst sitting on my balcony being totally mesmerized by the views of Stromboli, Panarea and the calming ocean. A tranquil resort amongst vineyards, with breathtaking views as a backdrop! The rooms are minimal, but clean. Breakfast is simple but nice with a choice of pastries, cold meats, cereal or a hot cooked meal. Coffee is... More

We arrived for 3 nights and was very excited...Great views very well maintained gardens,rooms minimal and clean. Not sure why with all the land around they didn't make the bathroom a meter wider as you can hardly open the door! You are positioned between the main port and Malfa a little isolated without a car and taxis one way either... More

Amazing place with an incredible view. Bedrooms are a bit small but cute. The terrace with the view on the stromboli makes it magical. The food of the restaurant is expensive for what it is. Really nice staff. Gorgeous swimming pool. There is a shuttle service to go to santa marina and the beach of the hotel. U can play... More

The tasting of a most elegant Malvasian wine with its bouquet of raisons,candied fruits and hints of citronella and pepper,led us to enquire where this gem of Sicily was made. The owner of the bottle shop,gave us a card bearing the name of this resort,which lies at the edge of the vineyards and has an incomparable view across the sea... More
