Stayed at the rooms near the pool. The room I stayed was very charming with good space, a nice bathroom (not too spacious) and comfortable bed. The patio in front of the room with the view of the sea and Stromboli are unique! Pool area is also quite nice, with an infinity pool. Staff was great! Sebastian helped out a... More

Stayed here for a very lavish wedding reception and was utterly impressed from start to finish. With Stromboli's lava glowing on the horizon and simple open plan styling this was a place that will live with me. Not entirely faultless imperfection is the key to beauty.

Best hotel in Panarea. The service has been absolutely exceptional with very friendly staff. A big thank to Sebastian who's has been very helpful and friendly. The different location of the hotel is actually a real plus as you can benefit from different views depending on where you are staying. This has been an exceptional holiday for us and can't... More

Where to start with Hotel Raya?! An enigma if ever there was. In many ways idyllic, in many others, so flawed. I've opted to go with 4 Stars & Very Good as this reflects how much pleasure we derived from our stay, but I do acknowledge the view of those who think it overpriced. We stayed 5 nights & loved...

A very quirky hotel, in need of some TLC. The rooms are small, but with fantastic views over the sea, and looking onto Stromboli. The beds are built onto the floor, but the pillows are terrible. Hard lumps of rubber. Very old. The towels have been there since the hotel opened! So thin and worn. You also need to be... More

Dreadful, dirty and low quality. Worth a maximum 30 euros a night not 300!!! Clearly there is a massive tourist glut in Panarea who don't care about anything if this place can stay in business. On a positive note, the views from Panarea are good.

Had an amazing time at this hotel- even though it is a bit pricey for what it offer. Rooms are very simple and basic. However, the hotel property and amenities are gorgeous. Has a beautiful pool area, excellent bar and restaurant and some stunning views. The owner is also a very interesting lady with some fun stories to share.

The Raya is not a hotel - it's a state of mind! I seriously can't describe it...you can take a swin in the fab pool (well, 4 pools) at any hour of the day, there are no TVs (but wifi!), everything is organic (even the wall paint) and it feels like Ingrid Bergman might actually show up any minute.

A legend with an incomparable hippy atmosphere to it. The views and the elegance are breath-taking (literally!!). Chic crowd. It is quite expensive given the hotel is slightly run down. But a one in a kind experience....

A simple hotel on a stunning island. The views out to the Stromboli volcano was amazing. If it wasn't for the view and beauty of the island I would been disappointed with the room and price . The restaurant and bar area are great.
