Hotel Mamma Santina
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Warm, colourful and relaxed, Mamma Santina was our home from home for the four nights we spent on Salina island. Our room was comfortable and eclectic, and the view of a smoking Stromboli from balcony and shower dramatic. The food was delicious (the pasta with shrimp sauce particularly memorable) and the warmth and friendliness of the staff entirely faultless. The island itself is a peaceful retreat, with quiet beaches, woodland walks, wild flowers, birds...... We will be back!

Thank you to Mario, Alessio, Sylvio and all the Mamma Santina staff for another wonderful stay. Although it has been quite some time between stays nothing has changed at Mamma Santina. The hotel is kept in excellent condition. The staff are very attentive and personable. The food is amazing. We will never tire of the view from the hotel. Every employee goes out of their way to help. No request is a problem for them. It is wonderful to see this kind of enthusiasm for their work. Mamma Santina is highly recommended by my husband and I. Next time it will be for a much longer stay and not such a long gap between visits. The only thing I would add and this is by no means a fault with the hotel is maybe a shaving mirror or a bright light over the mirrors in the bathrooms.

Room Tip: Go for the room above the restaurant with the large balcony. You can lounge around on the terrace i...

What paradise! Santa Marina is the most beautiful place I have been to and this was a perfect place to stay. We were met by Silvio at the port and given a cappucino while our bags were taken to our room. We stayed in the room with the huge balcony to sunbake on with a beer/wine and it was just bliss. We truly felt like guests and Silvio, Francesca, Stefan and Alessio could not have been more friendly or helpful. The food was great and the walk down to town was pleasant. We only wish we could have stayed longer.

Room Tip: We picked the best room and loved our balcony, although all have views to die for.

Mario and his exceptional staff, location, food, price, room, amenities, make this hotel a number one choice for anyone wanting quiet, peaceful surroundings, beauty as far as the eye can see, bird life, unspoiled nature, mountain vistas, azure seas perfect for swimming, diving and boating, romantic settings, what more could you ask for?? I know, some of the most friendly islanders ever... the people of Salina...love you. Room was perfect, great balcony, hammock, table and chairs, view of Lipari, Stromboli and Panarea. An artist pallet of colors everywhere in this tastefully done hotel.

Room Tip: Room #10 Perfect for us. Stayed 10 days. Enough said

Stayed there for one night and we were very pleasantly surprised. The first thing to highlight is the friendliness and availability of the staff that makes you immediately feel at home, we even had the nice surprise of being upgraded. The hotel itself is in typical aeolian style, we very much liked the tiles in the bathroom but the rest of the room was very pleasant as well. Very accessible from the center or the harbour (they will pick you up at arrival if you want as the climb to the hotel is a bit steep with luggage) and nice view on the islands (stromboli) if you stay on the upper floor. The pool in summer can be really enjoyable. Dinner is typical very tasteful sicilian cuisine, try the pasta "mama santina" with 13 types of herbs, excellent! Good knowledge and advice on local wines provided by the staff. Breakfast offers several homemade cakes and jams that we very much enjoyed. A great experience.

We had a peaceful and relaxing stay here, room 9 on the first floor has a great private terrace with lots of morning sun and views over Stromboli. The staff was helpful and nice, we would definitely stay here again.

This colorful small hotel in the middle of the town is a real gem. Its warm colors and many details makes staying here very relaxing. The pool area is surrounded with plants, and from our room we have had a fantastic view over the Stromboli, putting a firework display at night. The on site restaurant prepared a delicious seafood.
