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

My husband, my 2 daughters and myself have just spent 8 nights in Capo Faro and what can I say that has not already been said........... What a stunning and beautiful place. We got up graded to a junior suite because it was my birthday. The views are outstanding and the staff are very pleasant and extremely helpful. I would... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights here and enjoyed every minute. This place is very special. It was a very relaxing stay for us while celebrating our anniversary. They were very thoughtful by sending us champagne to our room! We spent all our time by the pool and lounge area viewing the sea and drinking wine which was from... More

What a treat to stay here! This place is a gem and appears to be the best place in Salina. If you're looking for a somewhat quiet island, look no further. We visited Panarea for a day and it reaffirmed our decision to stay on Salina. We spent three nights here and wished we could have stayed longer. The property... More

Seriously, we have friends who live in Catania who visit Salina every year and they recommended this place when we were booking. And I can say -- this is indeed the best "Resort" on Salina. We stayed there for about 5-6 days. I can tell you that the Service was great, friendly folks with an attitude to help. Rooms were... More

First of all, this was my second time, after a memorable dinner there last year. Unfortunately I now have to overturn my review. In a nutshell: 1) Overall quality of the food was just ok, and definitely not outstanding as it was before and supposed to be; 2) While the quality fell down, prices have been increased unreasonably. Above all,... More

We arrived in Salina by boat and reserved a wine tasting and lunch via the beautiful (I discovered later) Jessica on the phone. A 10 euro (!) taxi ride from the main port up the hill and along the coast was great, then we got there and a nice young man from Rome very knowledgeable about wines led us, for... More

The hotel is sorrounded by vineyards and olive trees. Located close to the cliffs, you will have a wonderful scenario of Eolian Sea, I would recommend to rent a car ( 60 euros x day) and visit Pollara ( just this). I would also rent from Malba a motor boat ( 12o euro per day) and have a picnic in... More

I have been meaning to get around to writing a review for Capofaro for several years now, because I am always remembering it with happiness. I'm not sure why it took me so long to put pen to paper. I must admit that my experience of Capofaro might not be typical. We still had no accommodation on Salinas as our... More
