10/10 Exceptional

Comfortable, relaxing, and friendly
Fantastic view of the sea and the island of Lipari from my own private terrace. Comfortable and clean room, with air conditioner to take the edge off the July heat. Very friendly service, including accomodating my early departure with an earlier than usual breakfast and even giving me a lift to the ferry terminal. I was traveling alone, but this would also be a great place to stay for a couple or a family.

Good experience
I stayed one night in June. The B&B itself is very good. I was offered a free pick-up and return service to the port which was very good. Overall the service was excellent. I had a large tiles room with a balcony overlooking the sea. The only detractor is that the B&B is quite a way up the hill from the main shopping street. Overall still good value though

Une belle adresse à retenir.
Un accueil personnalisé et au service de vos préoccupations. L’hotel peut venir vous chercher au port où vous y emmener, dans la mesure où vous pouvez anticiper la demande. Après discussion sur nos projets de randonnées, l’hotel Nous a trouvé un guide pour la modique somme de 50 euros pour 3 personnes. Économique au regard des prix pratiqués sur les îles éoliennes. Le restaurant de l’hotel possède une terrasse où la vue sur la mer le soir de pleine lune est tout simplement exceptionnelle. Les chambres sont très propres.

Una vacanza da ripetere!
Abbiamo pernottato 5 notti nella struttura. Ci è piaciuto tutto, dalla camera spaziosa e pulitissima con la terrazza alla cucina dello chef che ci ha voluto viziare con la sua capacità ed il pescato che offre Salina. Il personale molto gentile e cordiale ed Adriana, gentilissima, è sempre disponibile per suggerire cosa vedere o poter fare. Abbiamo sfruttato con piacere l'opzione di fare apericena dalla terrazza della propria camera che gode di una vista spettacolare. La terrazza si affaccia sul mare e si vede l'isola di Lipari, la cui costa ad ogni tramonto si accende di rosso fuoco! Stupenda. Percorrendo un sentiero un po' sconnesso si raggiunge la sottostante spiaggia di sassi in 5 minuti a piedi. La via principale si raggiunge in 10 minuti a piedi. Con uno scooter si gira tutta l'isola comodamente. Da rimarcare il servizio trasporto, da e per il porto, all'arrivo e alla partenza, che fa si che la distanza dal porto non sia un problema quando si hanno bagagli.

Consigliato, ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo.
Molto piacevole, tranquillo e ben tenuto. Le camere al piano superiore hanno una bellissima vista, soprattutto quella ad angolo. Personale molto gentile e accogliente. E’ un po’ fuori dal centro di Santa Marina, che si può tuttavia raggiungere facilmente mediante una breve passeggiata (5-10 minuti).

Accueil chaleureux et beau panorama
Situé sur les hauteurs à l'écart du port, cet établissement mérite les efforts faits pour l'atteindre (à l'arrivée et au départ, navette gratuite possible). Meilleur accueil de tout notre voyage dans les îles éoliennes, avec apéritif offert, accompagné d'excelentes petites choses à grignoter. Grande chambre meublée à l'ancienne avec goût. Et surtout, pour la chambre que nous occupions, terrasse avec vue superbe sur l'île de Panarea et au loin le Stromboli.
