My family and I had so much fun staying at Hotel Mea! The staff was especially friendly and helpful during our stay. Breakfast was great, and extensive. We had several wonderful recommendations for dinner since the hotel restaurant was closed for the season. The front desk was able to help us with anything we needed and the taxi service to...

What is positive? The location, the view, the room and bed, the bathroom, the breakfast, the quality of the food. What is less positive? The atmosphere of the restaurant ( maybe too many groups), the barking dogs at night. Conclusion: I think it is difficult to find a better stay on Lipari.

All round excellence - we stayed at Hotel Mea last week on a Fleetway travel half board offer. Usually I am wary of such deals as the food can be so variable. No such worries here - the food in Chimera restaurant was generally top class - very basic, typical Sicilian food - lots of pasta, seafood and fish, all...

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Mea as part of a two-week tour of Sicily and it was absolutely wonderful-the location, the service and especially the food! It is a short walk to town but with a wonderful view of the city and port-especially from the restaurant for dinner. The staff was incredible - very friendly and especially helpful...

The hotel is very clean and well appointed and is within close walking distance of the port and main area for shops and restaurants. It is in a fairly busy built up area with views of the port and bay. In terms of this I would have preferred a quieter area with fewer hotels and buildings but it did not...

Having read other reviews, I was looking forward to staying here. I was disappointed. Rooms are fine - but "sea view" is only accurate if you crane you're neck and look sideways. Someone wrote about the great breakfasts, but (it may be that things are different in September - end of season, etc) breakfast was not even adequate. Awful toaster...

We stayed at hotel Mea for 5 nights and enjoyed every minute. It is in the best location for exploring all of the islands. The food is incredible and I would recommend half board as it is a bit of a walk into the town. Drinks are reasonably priced and the breakfast was lovely. Franco made our stay! I have...
