This is a comfortable hotel which is ideally placed for the beach and for access to the port and the volcano. We arrived early (check in was at 2pm) and the room was ready at 11am. The service was personal and all staff seemed to say hello. The pool was outstanding, albeit a little deep, but had an excellent backdrop of Vulcano crater. The beach was literally a step outside the hotel and private with plenty of space. The hotel offer a good service to collect you from the port and drop you back there to catch your ferry. Make sure you contact the reception and let them know when you are arriving! The food was to a good standard though the restaurant was more expensive than restaurants in the main port area. The breakfasts were substantial and i would recommend a buffet breakfast, offering both hot food, continental breakfast and cake! The only criticism i would have is that room decor is a little old, and the bathroom we had in our room was tiny, especially the shower unit. However, this should not detract you from staying in what is a nice place. The location of the hotel is also great for the local mudpools and hikes up Vulcano. I would recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: The rooms on the beach terrace are great.

I stayed 3 nights. The room was so poor that I couldn't believe it was a 4 star hotel. Our sheets on the beds were not replaced but just re-arranged the same ones whole 3 days. When we arrived, we found a cockroach lying on the ground. The hinge of the door under the desk in which minibar was installed was disengaged. Poor breakfast without egg & bacon. It is totally strange that this hotel has still a lot of guests. If you are planning to visit Vulcano, try Therasia Resort [------------] instead.

Although I think this was the best hotel on the island, I was slightly disappointed. For a four star hotel it has a nice looking pool, decent size bedrooms, great restaurant and bar for port and sunset viewing, and private beach area. At first view, it all looks amazing, but on closer inspection you notice a few imperfections. For example, the pool drain/gutters did not look very clean and was missing a few covers too; other than that, it's a great pool. The bedroom and bathroom were nice and spacious, but somehow tiny ants managed to get to some drinks and food in our rubbish bin and the bathroom had a real shoddy old shower curtain. The room didn't even have a window, but wouldn't matter as none of the rooms have any views at all that would be of interest. No private beach either, as was advertised, but there is a private beach AREA. The beach is pretty much public. I didn't expect any of this from a four star hotel and think the room rate maybe just a bit high, but then again this is a hotel on a small island. Perhaps my expectations were too high. In any case, staff were very courteous and friendly; impeccable service. The best part of the hotel is the indoor/outdoor restaurant; great for evening dining.
