We attended the advertised 10 euro tapas and drink sunset experience. The view was lovely ,however the owner could be seen to be openly bickering with the staff in front of the customers. This made us feel uncomfortable and unwelcome. We ate a few tapas that were on the bar ( average fried fare) and settled in for the sunset... More

Amazing location. At first glimpse it looks like a luxury resort, but it's really not. A total lack of servicemindedness, even though rooms were pricey. Breakfast was included, but the selection diminished rapidly after only 30 minutes, and lack of refill even on basics like bread. Rooms were spacious, but simple. Uncomfortable bed. Salina was beautiful, but I will stay... More

I spent a few days here with my partner in July. The hotel has a wonderful location, on a green hill, in front of the sea. The decor is elegant and minimalistic with a lot of common spaces in the open air where to hang out. I booked online on hotels.com and they assigned us a room on the ground... More

The hotel is in a very nice location with an amazing view. However, the rooms are generally poorly maintained (e.g., AC was not working properly, we ran out of hot water, the room was filled with ants) and the service is far from perfect. The hotel staff was clearly annoyed by any questions and requests we had. The only exception... More

Second stay there within one year. And the hotel turned from nice into super nice. True relaxation central for people looking for peacefull, comfortable and cool vacation. The location and the view from the terrace and some suites are unbeliveable. Spacious and really cool'n'simple suites, cleaned daily. Everyone really friendly there, while there are still works on the beach below,... More

A friend and I had a great stay at Santa Isabel - it's location and views are unbeatable but it's quite noisy due to the motorbikes and its proximity to the road. Staff gave us very useful information (eat at Porto Bello in Santa Marina - fabulous) and were very obliging when we requested a change of room.

Santa Isabel Hotel is well situated on top of a rocky cliff, above a perfect little rock beach. The rooms are large and luxurious, and ours had a view of the ocean from the bedroom. The spot is quiet and comfortable, so long as you're not bothered by the attached restaurant/lounge -- which is a great spot for dinner or... More

Me and my wife we happen to travel around Europe twice a year. After many years spent at Raya in Panarea I've decided to explore the islands nearby in order to find something more unique. We chose Salina as our destination and we were so surprised by the calmness and the beuty of the place. We stayed at Santa Isabel... More
