We were a group of 12 hoping to have an aperitif matching the beauty of the place and the feedback we heard. Waiters showed a serious lack of experience, a glass got broken where some glass hit the typical 'panelle' which were promptly taken away but not replaced, we had no other cold 'stuzzichini' nor with anything hot either.

Beautiful garden and scenery, organic tasty and healthy food, lovely staff - personal without being in your face, private atmosphere, nice guests, simple rooms with a certain charm. The only little downside is the trip to get there...

I stayed at this hotel for a week and have to say that this was an extremely pleasant experience. This is a great place if you need to recuperate or a place to totally relax. The fresh air and surrounding set in a vineyard surrounded by mountains and sea is truly spectacular! The staff were exceptional, always smiling and making... More

Capofaro is the kind of place you go to for tranquility. Set in a working vineyard , our simple but modern, chic junior suite was a soothing place to rest and linger. The private back terrace had two chairs to look up at the mountain and lemon trees. The clean, spacious bathroom had a very large shower with high quality... More

it is truly a magnificent resort, it inspires you to be on holiday, you just don't want to leave... that is the feeling I got when I stayed at Capofaro. It is one of those places where you totally relax and do what you want. I stayed in a room, close to the parking and it was isolated, wherever I... More

Spectacular views, beautiful Aeolian rooms, impeccably maintained gardens, chic pool / dining area, this working vineyard / hotel has all it takes if a relaxing, 'away from it all', stay is what one is after. Wonderfully managed by elegant, kind and courteous staff, the resort is secluded and private, located as it is on breathtakingly beautiful Salina.

Our group of 10 stayed here at the end of a rather exhausting tour of Sicily a year ago. Nestled in the midst of sprawling vineyards, Capofaro was a fitting finish and literally a breath of fresh air after 12 days of experiencing hotels good and bad. We were housed in a row of adjoining villas, and we actually liked... More

We were taken by friends who have eaten there before. Strings were pulled to get a reservation as they were 'fully booked'. When we arrived the restaurant was almost empty. The staff were disorganized and indifferent. They seem to have some arrangement with a school - and clearly the children (students?) we doing the cooking. After a long wait the... More

I had an idea in my mind about this resort, from the website it looks like paradise on earth, but the reality is quite different. Rooms and balconies do not offer much privacy, some balconies even communicate with each other. So if you happen to be next to a family with small children...good luck. Staff are not respectful of guests'... More

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
