Reviewed October 6, 2012

In the most idyllic location with wonderful simple bedrooms, this should have been one of the best places to stay. And it could be, however, the hotel is staffed by very charming, good looking but completely hopeless young men. We were staying at the end of the season and were the only guests and it struck us that the staff were more intent on enjoying themselves than looking after their guests. Breakfast was non-existant, unless you count yesterday's bread toasted with jam and coffee, or the ubiquitous creme filled croissant. We asked for some fruit, which never arrived - although one morning got a yoghurt! We ate dinner there once and this too was disappointing, although we did have a very good lunch one day - chose carefully. The new owner needs to get a professional manager in charge with a background in hotel / catering to bring some professionalism to the running of the place. That being said we actually loved our time there, Filicudi is a fabulously unspoilt island, with little to do but hang out - the restuarant on the port is wonderful (the other side of the island) is really nice (and has wifi the only place on the island that does). Would I go back, yes but would probably stay in an apartment rather than at the Pensione, it has a lot going for it, but needs to up its game for the prices it charges.
