“A must stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2006

The best hotel on our visit! Your day begins with a great cup of cappuccino and complimentary breakfast bar! The staff was overly eager to help us find local attractions and many times booked our reservations. The house keeping - impeccable! Only complaint is that the walls are a wee bit thin. Definitely recommend a visit!

We were a little nervous because this was the only place that wasn't booked in late July but our stay here was fantastic. The rooms are not ultra modern and have older furniture in them but they were huge. We were with another couple and this was the only hotel in Sicily to grant our request of being next to each other and we had an ajoining room which made it more fun. One of our rooms had a kitchen which was great for putting leftovers in and having our drinks on our patio that had a great view of the water. Good a/c and they did an excellent job of cleaning the room every day despite the slobs we were. The best part was Monica who works at the front desk and helped us with anything we needed. Customer service in Italy leaves a bad taste in your mouth but Monica helped us with our every need. They gave us great recs for places to eat and we rented a day boat tour with her husband which was fantastic and the highlight of our trip.

The hotel doesn't have a pool but you can walk to a little cove for swimming in 5 minutes and the walk into town is only 15 minutes to get the boats to the private beaches. This is a comfortable and affordable place to stay in Lipari which is a fantastic island.

  • Disliked — Needed a pool.
  • Tips/Secrets — Take the boat trip with Giovani around the island.
