“superb hotel....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

Hotel Ravesi is a fantastic hotel situated in the heart of in the quiet little town of Malfa. The hotel pool and cocktail bar overlooks the sea with amazing views of stromboli and panarea. The pool is the perfect size, relative to the number of guests. you wont find yourself struggling to get a poolside spot like other hotels. its a quiet and relaxed spot during the day. It appeared to be mainly couples staying at the hotel but would also be perfect for a few ladies looking for a relaxing break. There is no main restaurant in Ravesi but there is a poolside bar which serves breakfast in the morn. The breakfast is a cut above the other hotels we stayed in and the evening time appertivo is fantastic. There were thunderstorms on some evenings while we were there, and what an amazing spot to view all the lightning miles out to sea - while sipping on some of the best cocktails that I had during my entire stay in sicily! The rooms are spacious, clean and modern and all rooms appear to have their own patio/balcony area. We found it hard when booking to decide between Ravesi and Signum, and having visited both hotels (we just had meals in Signum), I'm glad we picked Ravesi. In terms of value for money - you simply cant beat Ravesi. (Signum is situated right next door - and the signum restaurant is certainly worth a visit for dinner - but book ahead!) Finally, the staff at Ravesi - everyone speaks good English and they are incredibly courteous and knowledgeable about the area. I would definitely go back to Malfa - for this hotel alone!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Salina and our stay at Hotel Ravesi. The staff were friendly and helpful. The pool was amazing and the breakfast was also excellent. We only stayed one night but next time we will definitely be staying for longer.

A quality hotel. Room was very spacious and tastefully decorated. Pool area and gardens are spectacular. Breakfast in the bar area is fantastic. Good location from which to explore the island using the very reliable bus service.

Room Tip: Bus fare is a flat rate (€1.80) no matter where you go. The restaurant next door (whose name escapes...

Great outlook, very friendly and helpful service/ reception, responsive to email contact. We watched a brilliant sunrise over the Mediterranean from our room, great breakfasts, lunches and pre-dinner snacks with local/ homemade dishes and wines. We stayed four nights and were sorry to leave. Tip, if coming from Catania airport, Sicily, ask the hotel to arrange private transfer, perhaps more expensive, but worth it since can save an overnight stay on the way.

Room Tip: Superior rooms are more expensive but have a great outlook looking over the sea.

We spent here one week in the beginning of june. The hotel was just amazing combination of beauty, elegance, simplicity and carefully thought details. The location is perfect to explore this green island of flowers and wonderful nature. The staff was very friendly and kind and really made you feel welcomed.

We stayed at the Hotel Ravesi for 4 days in June 2012. Myself and my boyfriend have travelled extensively and can honestly say the Hotel Ravesi is an absolute gem of a find. The view from the pool is completely stunning. It's peaceful, tranquil and beautiful. Mrs Ravesi is also absolutely wonderful! If you come here, you can't leave without having a mojhito at sunset!

Room Tip: room 12 is a corner room and has amazing views of the sea

This is lovely place to come and relax. Malfa is a picturesque, sleepy town to stroll around and enjoy the contrast with some of the busier, more touristy parts of Sicily. The staff at the hotel are warm and friendly, and do everything they can for you. The rooms are stylish and have a great feeling to them, and the jewel in the crown is the swimming pool - I'm not normally someone who wants to lie by a pool for hours on end but I could have lay here for weeks! My girlfriend and I will always talk fondly about this place, and after 2 weeks back at work in London, Hotel Ravesi is the place I think of most when I think of our 2 weeks in Italy.
