Beautiful place, great service, very relaxing
Posted Jun 11, 2013
We had such a lovely stay here! We came during late-May-into-June, when the island is still quiet, and got just what we wanted: a relaxing break, some beach time, and a chance to eat lots of Sicilian food. Great value for money. Veronica was extremely helpful whilst we were making the arrangements, and once we arrived, Milena picked us up right from the ferry, and gave us a full description and history of the island (albeit in Italian!) during the car ride. Our room was light and spacious and had doors that opened to a sea view and terrace. The bed was quite comfortable, and the bathroom was large and spotlessly clean. The hot water tank needs to fill up again between showers, but that happens really quickly (though not noiselessly). I had no complaints, and my partner's only gripe was that the refrigerator makes a humming noise sometimes that bothered him at night (light sleeper). The breakfast was yummy (a mix of fruit, cereal, cake, croissants, and yogurts) and the cappuccino was always served with a smile. The nearby restaurant was also excellent, though we only ate there on the first night. Because it's the less-populated side of the island, it's perfect for a more relaxing vacation, but if you take a bus or rent a scooter (£15 a day from Luigi's, or £20 from Marcello's) it is really easy to get back and forth to Lipari town or take in the views from some of the hilltop roads. Of course, there's a lovely view of Salina right from the hotel! Would definitely return.
