Lipari luxuryPosted Oct 31, 2013
Pros: The view, the décor and size of the room. Van available for trips into town.
Cons: In room wifi did not work, but available in the lobby and restaurant.
Location: Hotel is a distance from town and port but a van is available and the distance can fairly easily be walked.
Lovely large room with view of sea and pool area. Fresh fruit, meat and cheese, yogurt, and rolls for breakfast. Helpful staff.

Hotel Carasco = great views & incredible foodPosted Jun 29, 2013
Pros: View, food, access to the sea
Cons: Needs updating
Hotel Carasco is all about its position and the view - amazing! Built on the rocky seafront, the hotel has unspoilt views out to sea and towards the harbour. A great place to relax and watch the boating world go by. The hotel is a good 10minute hilly walk from the main street and harbour, but once you get your bearings its an enjoyable walk through winding streets. Our room (superior double) was a good size, air con and a fan, tv and balcony with a seaview. The bathroom was a little dated but did the job. The restaurant serves a good breakfast (cereals, fruit, pastries, cheese and meats). The lunch and dinner food was some the best we had on Lipari, delicious!, and great service too. The hotel does have a spa. A good size pool with diving boards. There are also steps down to a jetty where you can swim out into the bay - the highlight for us! The only minor negatives being that the decor in the hotel could be updated (not that thst affected our stay) abd they dont offer free wi-fi, only paid for (again not a big deal as it meant we switched our phones off!)!

unsurpassable settingPosted Jun 23, 2013
Hotel Carasco is a delightful place that takes you to a classic and romantic Italy. Its setting is unsurpassable, high up on the hill with views and its own access through winding stairs to the ocean below.
No jetted tub as advertisedPosted Sep 21, 2012 on Hotels.com
We booked this hotel for our honeymoon. The main reason we booked it was that it claimed to have jetted bath tubs in every room. As it was our honeymoon we were extremely disappointed to discover that all it had was a tiny grotty shower.

Good, but not so close...Posted Sep 7, 2012 on Hotels.com
We decided to stay at this hotel because of the reviews we read on the internet. The hotel itself is really nice, but it is a pain to move around because it is far from the center of to and clean, everytime you want to go out you have to wait for the "navetta" to take you to the center and tip him, unless you want to walk for a good 15 min. The most memorable thing about this hotel was the massage we got onsite...AMAZING! Ask for Giovanni if you want to get a good massage.

Good hotelPosted Sep 2, 2012
Overall is a good hotel. A little bit far from the town center. The pool area is a little bit outdated but the cove to access the sea is beautiful.

Fantastic location.Posted Aug 29, 2012
Pros: Amazing view.
Location: A short walk to centre of town made it tranquil and views made it spectacular.
Lovely friendly, polite and helpful staff. Handy shuttle service back and forth from town. But fantastic clifftop location with private access to the sea, sweeping sea views and a great pool made this place magical, even if the hotel itself had seen better days.
