My husband and I attended a small international conference for a week at this lovely spa hotel. The accommodations were outstanding, whether people chose the least expensive rooms where they enjoyed a variety of public verandas or the deluxe sea view rooms with private sun and shade terraces. We all had "full board" so from the astonishing breakfast buffet (how about a dozen choices of local honeys identified by the flowers or trees that the bees fed on to top house-made yogurt?) through the multi-course lunch to the sumptuous dinners featuring local seafoods, we enjoyed excellent cuisine. The wait staff did their best to meet the demands of children, vegetarians, and just plain picky eaters in every possible way. Beds were extra comfortable; housekeeping was prompt and discrete. The free hydrotherapy pool was a true treat for exercise. The spa massage (aromatherapy) was a joy with reasonable pricing. Many staff members are multi-lingual and every one we interacted with from the greeter at the ferry dock to the shuttle chauffeur to the front desk and restaurant and spa staff were smiling and very helpful. There are charming walks and paths on the hotel's property. The one with cacti and succulents meanders around, giving views up to the simmering vulcanello. Excursions and boat tours around the other Aeolian Islands were arranged for a fee. Although Vulcano island is famous for its sulfur mud baths, this hotel is located well away from that odorous area.
