5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2014

We spent 5 nights of our honeymoon at Il Gelso. The accommodations were very comfortable and the location of the B&B can't be beat. It was really easy to get to the beach during the day or get out to a restaurant at night. Gianfranco and Lorenza were incredibly hospitable and helpful, they hooked us up with some great experiences... More

A charming place, surrounded by nature and with a breathtaking view. Rooms are clean and very well furnished. From the hotel, the nicest rocky beach of Malfa is easily accessible, about 3 or 4 minutes away. The breakfast terrace, overlooking the Mediterranean sea, is simply unforgettable. Salina is a lovely island, far enough to be preserved from the massive tourism,... More

We stayed in one of the little cottages and it was perfect. The owner was very kind and helpful. We spent a lot of the time on the terrace surrounded by birds and bees and flowers. Rocky beach is five minutes away, and so is the excellent supermarket. The kitchen was small but had everything necessary and there was a... More

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2011 via mobile

We stayed two nights and could not have picked a better place to get over travel from NZ. You must spend an evening on the terrace at the Santa Isabel (3 minutes) and eat at A' Lumeredda (<10 minutes up the path). We bused from Santa Marina and they came looking for us. They also provided a ride back to... More

My boyfriend and I spent a long time looking for accommodation on Salina that would fit into our price range and when I finally came up with this place I had a feeling we were onto a winner. It so delightful - it's one of those places you almost don't want to tell other people about because you want to... More
