4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Lovely stay, hotel is right on the beach and away from the noisy clubs. There is no better-located hotel on the island. Staff was extremely helpful, be it the front-office staff, the bell captain/driver or the very smart barman!

We spent 3 nights here in late June. The rooms were very large by European standards and have a nice kitchen/eating/living area as well as a balcony. The staff was very responsive and friendly, and the pool and beach area lovely. Breakfast, dinner and drinks were all very good.

We stayed 5 nights at Les Sables Noir in a blisteringly hot early September. This is not a conventional hotel: it's a resort of privately owned condos that are rented out by the management company. That means you get exceptional resources for a reasonable price. Makes a change from pokey little hotel rooms. There is a nice pool but it... More

The hotel is very easy to reach from the little harbour (approx 10min walk) and it's placed 5min walking from Vulcano's main street. The beach is reachable directly from the hotel and it's one of the most famous on the island, made of black sand. Some rooms have been recently renewed. Although our room hadn't, it was still nice, big... More
