I took a group of 20 friends on a trip down the Coast and over to Sicily. We had our own bua. We took a ferry to Lipari and stayed at the Bougainville. The hotel gave us some problems with its service. The first was the room they offered our driver after a full say's work. They wanted to put him in an underground room, I believe without windows or TV (they did offer the latter). He refused the room -- justifiably in my judgement -- and, to their credit they remedied by putting him up in another hotel, without charge.
What they did not remedy was their check-out hour. In a resort, they set a check-out hour perhaps the earliest I have ever encountered: 10AM. Our ferry was in the afternoon, but they were unwilling to extend it past 10:30 or 11. My co-organizer suggests they had too few maids to do the rooms. Whatever the reason, the result is highly dubious and prevents me from highly recommending the hotel.
