“Awesome place to stay in Salina!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

Lovely hotel with a great view, nice rooms and very friendly staff. Alessio in particular was always very kind and helpful. We went there in May-June which is a great time to go to Salina, and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. The restaurant is top-notch, the mixed starters and the "pasticcio di zucchine" are truly some of the best dishes I've ever had.

Very impressed with this hotel. It has lovely views over Panaraea and Stromboli islands. The hotel is reasonably priced, very clean, well-located near the port but still quiet and has a very good restaurant. There is a lovely pool area. The staff were always very helpful and attentive - nothing was too much trouble.

Because of the time of year - May - getting to the island of Salina was not as straight forward as we had previously thought. However Alessio from Mamma Santini came up with a plan that worked well for us, despite a long day of travel from Positano. The extra effort was well worth it as everything about Mamma Santini, our room with a view over Stromboli, the excellent meals from the restaurant & the most friendly & helpful staff made for a relaxing & most pleasant stay.
Located up the hill from the ferry, the pickup & drop off service provided by MS was most appreciated. Mario's meals were excellent made with the freshest ingredients & the chocolate souffle dessert was to die for!

Room Tip: Request a room with a balcony overlooking Stromboli & Panarea

We originally booked for 5 nights, but the magic of Salina and in particular Mamma Santina led us to stay for an extra night as we so enjoyed our stay! Let’s just say that leaving was hard. The hotel is truly lovely and the staff wonderful (Alessio, Sulvio and Florin) courteous, attentive and genuinely interested in ensuring an excellent stay. This is a hotel where service comes with a genuine smile, the food is lovely and the views from the restaurant terrace wonderful of Stromboli and Panarea. During our trip, we had a scooter and on day 1 had a minor mishap, which Alessio and Sulvio sorted out for us very quickly. By the end of our stay we were "scooting" around like locals, and got around to see this beautiful island. While the hills are steep, the views are outstanding and the village is beautiful. It is easily the best holiday I’ve ever had, and I think it may be come a regular fixture on my travel itinerary.

Dear guests,

you left from just few days and we miss you already. It is great to read that your first visit in the Aeolian islands has gone well and we managed to contribute positively to the quality of your holiday.
I remember seeing you darting fast and furious with the scooter across the roads here (better than many locals indeed) and i agree with you, it is great fun!!! Still there are many things you haven't seen and done, enough for another holidays (or two).
We will always be here welcoming you open arms and we look forward to receiving soon your news.
Until your next visit we wish you all the best.

Salina the island is beautiful, calm and restful. Mamma Santina's is comfortable, spotlessly clean, with polite, correct and considerate service without being over friendly. The food is excellent too.
These guys have got it absolutely right. Congratulations.
The one caution is that if a traveller has any mobility problems, then Salina is probably not the best place to go - there are hills.

Dear guests,

thank you very much for your kind words.
We are happy to read that you had a nice stay here with us, and we look forward to seeing you soon in Salina.
The villages on the island are all built on the mountain side and for this reason there are no many flat roads around. S.Marina offers some exceptions to this rule (the walk to lingua is flat and pleasant) and our hotel has several rooms to accomodate customers with mobility special requirements.
Next time try September, the weather is lovely and we will be happy to take care of you again.
All the best.
Alessio and all Mamma Santina's team.

Great Hotel, tugged away between the houses of Salina, breathtaking view of the sea, Lipari, Panarea and Stromboli. Nice pool if you prefer it to the sea ..... and excellent food.

Mario, the owner (who is, btw, an excellent chef and great fisherman - so guess what you can have for dinner in top qualiry?) has done a really great job.

We also like the extremely friendly - multilingual - staff and have been here four times now. Will we come back? You can bet on that.
