“Would definitely stay here again”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

We spent four nights at Villa Meligunis during our honeymoon in June/July 2012, and we will definitely be staying there again when we next visit the beautiful Lipari. The location is outstanding, with incredible views over Marina Corta, which can be enjoyed from the amazing rooftop pool and lounge area. This is where we ate breakfast each morning, enjoying the sunrise over the stunning Mediterranean Sea, and where we consumed our evening cocktails (you must order the Aperol Spritz!). There are plenty of fantastic restaurants within walking distance from the hotel, and the main shopping strip is a leisurely 10 minute walk through the gorgeous cobbled laneways. The staff were absolutely incredible. They were friendly, helpful and very personable. They made it feel like we were the only ones staying in the hotel. The owner, Sonia, is an Australian woman who has been living in Lipari for over 22 years and she joined us at breakfast each day to chat and to ensure that we were enjoying our stay. We can’t wait to return to Lipari and to Hotel Villa Meligunis.

Villa Meligunis is fantastic.
It is perfectly located with fabulous views to enjoy your breakfast over.
The staff were brilliant, all very friendly and helpful. One of the charming women at reception gave us invaluable help in booking a boat trip when we were rather confused by all the different companies in town haggling for our custom!

This hotel is uniquely placed in Lipari, the main island in the Aeolian group of islands off the coast of Sicily. The hotel has a roof terrace with panoramic views over Lipari , its harbour and the Mediterranean. Breakfast is served on this terrace each morning with the rising sun sparkling over the azure blue sea. Buffet style breakfast is served wiht a large choice and great coffee. We also enjoyed coktails in the evening on the terrace with its specactualr views. Rooms are very clean and staff helpful

Fantastic place and service was great, it was clean and tidy and I would recemend it to anyone if visiting lipari and the nouboring islands. Fantastic views from the roof and pool area . The central position of the hotel made it easy to go to the shops or catch a ferry to another Island.. They really looked after us , and had some personnel service.

Lipari is a great place to visit. We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and were well looked after. The staff speak English, There ias a roof top pool and terrace . The hotel is located above Marina Corte - the heart of the action for boat tours and restaurants. The hotel provides transport from the port, so we had no trouble finding it.

Visited Lipari for 3 days. Beatiful island. Took our car on ferry from Milazzo. Had GPS but still could not find hotel if not helped by locals....no signs and no parking. Once there, rooms very clean and view beautiful but limited hot water. WiFi costs 3E per 30 min. and only works in lobby. Mentioned to desk staff and they seemed concerned but evidently management is not.
Excellent breakfast. While most hotel dinners are average at best...outsanding dinners at hotel prepared by 2 local women. Easy walks to town and stop by pastry shops!! Take a 2 hr taxi trip around island with Jian Franco. Excellent tour job....cost $80 and we gave him $20 tip!

Stayed May 2012, traveled with family

This hotel has a good location on the side of a hill, but it is hard to find and there are NO signs to help you. Our room #414 had a nice view of the harbor and a small balcony. It was well appointed and clean. There is little to no parking. Wi Fi does not work in the rooms but does in the lobby. They charge $8 per hour. The room was stuffy and the AC was not turned on in the rooms but worked fine in the lobby. The food in the restaurant was very good as was the service. The receptionists were very pleasant and spoke English perfectly. There is no english on TV.There is no hot water from 8:00pm to 7:00aM.

Room Tip: Room 414 has a good view.
