We spent few days in the resort and found it sufficient, well equipped but not meeting the standards of a four stars hotel. Staff is friendly and available, we appreciated very much the style of rooms and outdoors. Cleaning service is efficient. However, the resort offers nothing more than pool and accomodation, and even breakfast is disappointing in quality and... More

As a family of four we were looking for a child friendly, safe resort as we have a child and a baby. We stayed at Mari del Sud for the first week in June and thoroughly enjoyed it. To get there, Catania airport to the Milazo ferry terminal by car is about 1:30 hours. There are a number of ferries... More

Well, the Management had a point, But the fellow holiday makers, are simply not very tlerant. So, The Only Resort Restaurant they have, is simply not up to scratch. And if you want to go there for any length of time, as a couple, (and a bit spoilt) you will simple not find it very enjoyable!!!!!!No Service, amenities, good, staff... More

Magnificent place: large green area and pool, cosy restaurant on a shore of bay, great white rooms with portugese-like tiles, there is a tadelact-type rooms (with some copying of moroccan style). Pros: great light interior and exterior design reminding of Morocco/Portugal/Cyclades, best breakfast (tomatoes only at request for some reason) among a week stay on different Eolian islands, fresh cappuccino;...

Wonderful, relaxing, everything we expected and more. My husband and I spent three nights of our honeymoon at the Mari Del Sud. They have lovely resort grounds. It is on the side of the island that is NOT stinky with sulfur. Thank goodness. The pool was clean, the room was comfortable with a private bathroom and patio and the staff... More

It was difficult to tell from previous reviews what to expect from our stay. I was travelling with my three small children. We called 15 minutes before the hydrofoil arrived and the mini bus was waiting at the port to greet us. Checkin was fast and we were shown to the junior suite. I'm not sure why it was categorised...

The grounds of this hotel are amazing, like paradise! The pool is also fab. Breakfast was nice, but expected it to be better. Very handy location with a private walkway to the beach. The room was very smelly, which was expected as it is on Vulcano. However, it was a very weird smell, which we could not get anywhere else... More

EdenHotels R, Direttore at Hotel Mari del Sud Resort, responded to this review

Dear orange63, we are glad you enjoyed our Resort. The tipic smells of the island depend on the current: the volcano is behind our facility and sometimes comes the smell of sulfur, often confused with other smells. Considering the heat of July, maybe the air conditioning was weak for you, used to living in cold places. Despite this, we hope... More

We stayed for one night at the end of the peak season. The grounds and the pool are absolutely wonderful and the dinner was very nice. The breakfast was basic, but it was off peak so that was ok. Try to request a non adjoining room as there is only one door, not the usual two doors.

My wife and I spent a week in this hotel from 13th September 2014. I was a little concerned at the comments of some previous clients, especially some from 2013.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our resort is entirely surrounded by green, behind the famous Black Sands Beach and in perfect harmony with the surrounding environment. Mari del Sud Resort in Vulcano Island enjoys a privileged position allowing our guests to enjoy the unusual and fascinating sight of contrast between the deep blue sea and the magmatic colors of the background. The village has been recently expanded and entirely renovated. With a direct access to the sea, it includes low buildings separated by gardens and dotted with green passageways naturally framing the structure. The architectural style was inspired by Aeolian tradition combined with modern facilities, creating a comfortable shelter for his fragrances and sceneries, according to the best Mediterranean style. ... more   less
