Hotel Carasco has a stunning location set up in a rock cut platform in the cliff with views out over the sea to Sicily and the other Aeolian islands.The architecture of this hotel fascinated me. It was tall and castle like, part Moorish part Spanish with interesting arches, light fittings and shutters. Each capacious room had a balcony and ours...

My wife and I were in Sicily for three weeks celebrating my 70th and her 65th birthdays in the same week in September. We stayed in five excellent hotels over that time but I would say that the Carasco was probably the finest. We found the staff friendly and considerate - although some of the other guests, especially a moaning...

When we arrived there was a broken pipe and our room was unavailable. Cascaro sent us to a lovely competing hotel for the first night. It was a great place and we got a different view of Lipari. We returned the next day and enjoyed lunch, the pool, the bar lounge, great rooms and excellent staff. This is a place...

Located at the southern part of Lipary, 5 min by car from the arbor, 15 min walking, the reception is on floor 1, restaurant on floor 2, swimming pool on floor 0. Nice view on the sea, which also accessible from the hotel. The room is of medium size, bathroom OK (shower), small balcony. Restaurant has tables outside but protected,...

The staff at the reception dont speak english very well, didnt show us to our room, didnt explain the hotel facilities etc. We ordered lunch at the restaurant which took them 40 mins (!!) to bring us.. Even the starters. When it eventually came, the quality was poor. We also wanted to order a coffee by the pool in the...

The staff were really friendly, be that on reception, or in the restaurant. Rooms were clean, and those with sea views worth the extra money. The food was fine, good choice of fresh food at breakfast, and the lunch and evening menus were typical Italian fare. It was quite quiet when we stayed (last week of July), so perhaps we...

I have been reading some of the most recent reviews and, frankly, I am starting to wonder whether I have been in the same hotel with some of the other reviewers. The hotel was certainly built in the early 70s and that can be seen, but it is nonetheless very well kept with all the comforts that you would expect...

The location of the hotel is beautiful and spectacular, such a shame that the service and accommodation are so sub-standard. Our room was reasonably sized with antique type furnishings, the bathroom was narrow, dark and tiny, you could barely bend in the shower. Hard to get enough hot water to even feel warm. The bed was very hard and no...

There is no doubt that this classic 60s style hotel occupies the best position of any hotel on Lipari, perched on a cliff near Lipari Town. However, you'll need to take a taxi from the port or - as I found out much later - contact the hotel to arrange the shuttle to meet you, as it's a good 20...

Dear SoDizzy, Thank you very much for your review which mostly reflects our intentions: maintaining a place full of atmosphere and character, letting people understand what tourism might have been in the Aeolian Islands in 70s but giving them all the opportunities of modern times. We do indeed offer all you said and more: free wifi, excursions to all the...
