Vulcano is a 1-2 day trip where climbing to the top go the volcano for sunset is a must! Orsa Maggiore is within walking distance from the 1 hour trek to the summit. The pool area was an amazing oasis. Just a very relaxing place, and the staff were extremely friendly and nice. The little touches like a fresh espresso... More

The hotel is quite far from the harbor but by calling them they would pick you up and drive you there. The exterior, reception, swimming pool are pretty nice. The bedroom is quite average, the beds are on wheels and of poor quality. Nevertheless our overall stay on this island was great. The place is very nice. There are not... More

We attend here 7 nights in June with our little boy, aged 2 1/2. He was treated like a prince, no-one ever complained about our child, all staff were smiling and being kind to him. We would definitely stay there again, if we go to Vulcano again. A family-owned hotel of the best kind!

little care much arrogance on the part of management that unfortunately has changed from before when you could not trust the word of the manager precent always kind and truly worthy of what their children instead apparently use to mount the head by promising non-existent services or even worse disruptions. Pool and common areas on display to lure in small... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in August on our trip around Sicily and I doubt we could have found a better hotel on Vulcano. The managers were very friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough for us to improve our stay. The waiters and bar staff were also very helpful and introduced us to some great Sicilian beer that...

The thing I least liked about the hotel is its location - a 15-20 min walk from the main area of town . While it's not that far in one sense, if you want choices for lunch and dinner, and what to do during the day, the distance adds up, especially if it's a hot day . However many of... More

The hotel is a bit out of town, about a 20 minute walk from the port. However it is very quiet. The room we had (1A) was very large with its own private courtyard and another entrance that faced the pool. The bathroom was also large and the only problem was the shower head which refused to stay in place,... More

An easy walk from the port, this is an excellent family run hotel. Breakfast is fine, if a bit basic, but the food at lunch and dinner were really excellent. There is a large pool and plenty of space to relax. We needed help from a doctor for my wife who is pregnant and was worried about the baby; the... More

We enjoyed the pretty location of the hotel away from the busy parts of the island. The staff was very helpful and friendly and we could communicate in English. The rooms were kept very clean and comfortable. In the restaurant, the local fish was deliciously prepared. In short, if we go to vulcano again, we will choose this hotel.
