“wonderfull and romantic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We had a reservation for 2 nights in the Agave Residence, but when we arrived to the Hotel, they gave us the possibility to stay in the main building, with sea views, for the same price! Because of that, the review would always be Excellent! :) But not only for that!

The hotel its really wonderful, specially in the public areas. The grand floor is beautifully decorated with pieces of art and modern appointments in the old atmosphere of the hotel. The decoration has a nice balance between the "old" and the modern.
The terrace in the top is so great! It has views to the sea and Lipari city! It is also where you have the swimming pool and the breakfast room.

The only things that were not so great, were the wifi (nonexistent in the room - only on the ground floor) and the internet via cable that was always missing connection. You even has to ask for the code several times (5 in 5 hours, and 1 password for each device). Such an old system... That is really hard to understand in a 4 star hotel.

The other thing was the room: doesn't had the same atmosphere that you feel in the public areas... The decoration was a bit passed over...

Overall, depending on the price that you will pay, this hotel is a great choice!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Fashioned from two interconnecting villas, this hotel is peaceful and friendly and a good base for exploring the Aeolian Islands. Room was spacious and comfortable though there was a slight persistent damp odour in the bathroom. Food in restaurant was very good though breakfast choice was fairly limited. Wifi free but only available in lobby. Good roof terrace with pool for drinks with good views.

Room Tip: Room with balcony worth paying for.

The hotel is located in walking distance of Marina Lunga, Lipari castle, and Museo Archeologico Regionale Eoliano where there are ruins and a beautiful church to visit. Dinner is served outside if the weather is good, and an excellent breakfast comes with your stay.
The staff was friendly and helpful.
It is one of the few hotels with a pool.

We will definitely stay at Villa Meligunis again!

Great hotel although a bit hard to find in a small town. Room 414 has a great view - even better view on the rooftop terrace where the pool is - and nice to have a small book selection in the actual room and a small clothesline in the bathroom: rare from my experience. Staff are very helpful as is the the resident cat at reception.

Room Tip: Room 414 is one of the few rooms with a great view but some of the others have large terraces.

We spent four nights at Villa Meligunis during our honeymoon in June/July 2012, and we will definitely be staying there again when we next visit the beautiful Lipari. The location is outstanding, with incredible views over Marina Corta, which can be enjoyed from the amazing rooftop pool and lounge area. This is where we ate breakfast each morning, enjoying the sunrise over the stunning Mediterranean Sea, and where we consumed our evening cocktails (you must order the Aperol Spritz!). There are plenty of fantastic restaurants within walking distance from the hotel, and the main shopping strip is a leisurely 10 minute walk through the gorgeous cobbled laneways. The staff were absolutely incredible. They were friendly, helpful and very personable. They made it feel like we were the only ones staying in the hotel. The owner, Sonia, is an Australian woman who has been living in Lipari for over 22 years and she joined us at breakfast each day to chat and to ensure that we were enjoying our stay. We can’t wait to return to Lipari and to Hotel Villa Meligunis.

Villa Meligunis is fantastic.
It is perfectly located with fabulous views to enjoy your breakfast over.
The staff were brilliant, all very friendly and helpful. One of the charming women at reception gave us invaluable help in booking a boat trip when we were rather confused by all the different companies in town haggling for our custom!

This hotel is uniquely placed in Lipari, the main island in the Aeolian group of islands off the coast of Sicily. The hotel has a roof terrace with panoramic views over Lipari , its harbour and the Mediterranean. Breakfast is served on this terrace each morning with the rising sun sparkling over the azure blue sea. Buffet style breakfast is served wiht a large choice and great coffee. We also enjoyed coktails in the evening on the terrace with its specactualr views. Rooms are very clean and staff helpful
