Nice rooms and good location but for us it was spoilt by the acoustics of the hotel. We were on the floor below the roof terrace and in the afternoon/evenings when we like to have a mid afternoon nap after lots of sightseeing, swimming and exploring there was lots of noise from the terrace and in the morning the noise of everyone going to breakfast - opening and closing doors etc was all super amplified - impossible to sleep through - plus you could hear really loud the noise of breakfast plates being put away etc. It may be ok if you are a heavy sleeper or early riser but we were looking for a very restful holiday catching up on a lot of lost sleep and unfortunately I came back more tired than I went and very glad to be back in my quiet flat for a proper uninterrupted nights sleep.
Other points to mention- roof terrace bar/breakfast area is stunning as are the terraces attached to 2 larger rooms they have. The family who run it are very nice and friendly. Breakfast is not amazing but provides everything you basically need.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In the 1850s, along the Santa Marina waterfront, an ancient building was used to welcome and host the many merchants who, at that time, were attracted to Salina. The structure, whose name was Sajeva Hotel, offered to the visitors the best comfort of that time, a charming hall used also as meeting space for commercial transactions of Malvasia wine. The Santa Marina Hotel has been created a few meters away from the original site from the Saija family, from the rehabilitation of an ancient structure with the purpose of recreating the atmosphere of the old Sajeva. All the rooms are furnished with original antiques from that golden age, during which Salina was the major commercial hub of the Aeolian Archipelagos. The four stars Hotel Santa Marina has 4 standard rooms, 3 standard rooms with view, 2 Jr Deluxe with private patios, and 2 suites (suitable for more than two guests). On the roof terrace, equipped with free wi-fi, hotel guests and their visitors have their breakfasts and happy hours, overlooking all the other islands of the archipelagos. The hotel is located along the waterfront, in the very centre of the Santa Marina Village, at 3-minutes walking distance from the harbour, few steps away from the Village's main street and square. Rooms are equipped with air-conditioning, mini-bar, security box, satellite TV and phone, while the staff offers a reservation service for the major tourist attraction of the island (e. g. land and sea excursions, museums' guided tours, thermal bath). Guests can also benefit from conventional prices with a choice of the best local Aeolian restaurants. ... more less
