“Paradise hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

We spent an amazing holiday in this hotel, a little paradise where we forgot about daily life. We came with a baby and had lots of requests: baby bed, basin to bath baby, hot milk, extra fruits and vegetables, a babysitter, possibility to iron cloths etc and it was never a problem, on the contrary. Our room was not with sea view, I believe it was more quiet, instead we had a balcony with another room and beautiful flowers and trees.

The terrace where you have breakfast and lunch has an amazing view and is a bit like an open leaving room where you meet other guests. With a one year baby it was the perfect place for him to walk around. The staff was very kind looking after him as well, bringing extra glasses of water on their own initiative.

The swimming pool is very nice with sea water and a lot of sun but also shadow - so very comvenient for everyone.

The breakfast is very nice, especially delicious homemade marmelades and tasty fruits from the owner's garden. We did not have the possibility to eat for lunch or dinner but heard from other guests that it was very good since they now have a mew cook.

Signora Lydia te owner is very often around and looks after guests, making sure that everyone is happy. The staff is a real team, aleays ready to help. Probably the best hotel in Panarea.

All hotels are expensive anyway on the island. But happy that there is no chain hotel there, only family owned.

Ps: call in advance to announce your arrival time and ask for the hotel cab to pick you and your lugage it is free of charge.

We have just returned from a ten-day stay at this hotel. The lady who owns the hotel and the receptionist Fabio greet you with a friendly smile. The staff makes itself always available even at odd hours. Several of our friends who also stayed at this hotel made the same comments and all promised to return to Panarea, mostly thanks to the pleasant time spent in this hotel. We strongly recommend the Piazza also for the magnificent view, the convenient location (50 meters from the port) and the great swimming pool

We stayed at Hotel La Piazza for two days at the start of June 2013.
We arrived in Panarea at about 9:30am and were met by a golf cart to take us and the luggage to the hotel which was a short distance from the harbour. We were surprised that we were allowed to check in straight away and given an upgrade to room with a sea view and invited to have breakfast.
The room had been recently decorated; the terrace was private with walls separating it from adjacent rooms, the walls had plants growing over them. The terrace had a small table and two comfortable chairs. It was most attractive.
The salt water pool was a reasonable size and clean, there were plenty of loungers and there was a large covered area with tables and chairs.
The continental buffet breakfast was good with a good selection of items. We did not eat in the hotel but used the cafes and restaurants in the town.
The island is small and within a few hours everything can be seen, but it is a good place to relax and the views are spectacular wherever you are. The majority of people staying seemed to be Italian, although tour boats with a range of nationalities visited in the middle of the day.
There is very little street lighting so a torch would be useful on a dark night to light the way back to the hotel.
The staff were very friendly and helpful; when we left they waved us off like lifelong friends.

we spent a week at hotel la Piazza and enjoyed it ,it's the top spot of Panarea ,the view is fantastic ,the pool is right on the sea side overlooking the bay and the Eolie islands ,,the family management garantees that all the client needs will be satisfied and this is the main advantage .The breakfast is missing the fresh fruit ,for the rest is fine .The restaurant is good enough for a 4 star hotel .The service is not so performing but the staff is kind .The hotel is in urgent need of a renovation of the pool area ,the rooms are in good condition and clean but it's time for renovation too.
Overall ,we will be back if possible in the near future!

We enjoyed a few nights on this wonderful island. Hotel La Piazza is the best Hotel to stay at on the island. The pool that overlooks the ocean is filled with water from the sea, a small beach is situated below the Hotel. This is the only Hotel on the island where you can enjoy the sea with out hiring a boat.
The rooms have a beautiful balcony where you can relax and experience the breathtaking views. Bathrooms are of 3 star Hotel quality out dated although clean. Room interiors also average. I did comment to friendly staff about the Bathrooms and they did mention they were renovating and some of the rooms had new bathrooms there fore be sure to ask for the new bathroom when booking this Hotel.
Breakfast and dining area boasts spectacular views although I do not recommend the restaurant as it is of poor quality. Breakfast is average
