Elisa and her staff know how to treat the guests. From the moment we arrived until the second we left we felt as if we were cherished guests. I cannot find one bad thing to say about the place or the experience. The only reason why I have not written this review previously is because I was striving to find the right words to compliment La Rosa.
We opted for the all inclusive package which included one meal in their amazing restaurant, personal transportation and the boat excursions daily. I would not recommend that you avoid this option. The meal was prepared by the staff consisting of only fresh caught fish, local wines and other local delicacy's. The boat... WOW! The boat. It really completes the experience. The captain and first mate (Marco and Giacomo - Hello from Texas!) made us feel as if we were family and prepared AMAZING meals on the boat. They took us to a few of their favorite spots around the island. The island consists of the most jello like crystal blue waters and the boat provided us with snorkels and fins so that we could explore the region. Every stop we made around the coastline was just as or more beautiful than the next.
I would recommend this for a romantic trip, an adventurous trip, or even a family gathering. We cannot wait to go back. As global travelers with adventurous spirits, we find it hard to plan ANY trip without the topic of going back to Lampedusa and to the La Rosa coming up in our conversation.
We WILL be back Elisa! Soon I hope.
