Spacious rooms with separate bedroom and bathroom, beautiful garden, good breakfast, but everyday - we stayed four days - exactly the same (bread roll, croissant, cheese, salami, ham, scrambled egg, yoghurt, fresh fruit salad, muesli, marmalade pie, apple cake, juice, tea, coffee, milk). Also available are espresso and cappuccino from the bar. Friendly staff. The hotel has a shortcut to... More

After spending 5 nights in noisy and dirty Palermo, our stay at La Giara was a little bit of paradise. The residence is a very short walk from the ferry, the grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The breakfast buffet was pretty typical of that offered in Sicily. We really liked having a kitchenette for a break from eating in... More

The hotel is Ok, with a clean and good size room and bathroom and a small kitchen inside it. It's possible to prepare small meal inside it. The surround is pleasant and the swimming pool is located in a beautiful area. The hotel is very well located, very close to the port and the main street and the staff is... More

This hotel was excellent. The rooms were great well equipped with air conditioning. Our room had a mini kitchen with stove and little oven/Grill. The bathroom was pretty good. There's a nice area to chill. There's a great pool too. Location of the hotel is pretty good its only a 2 minute walk from the main strip.

I spent four days here in June and overall had an excellent experience. I was traveling with a group and there was a little confusion on room assignments at the beginning but it was quickly sorted out. The hotel room was spacious with a kitchenette attached inside. The location of the hotel is very convenient. There is a small market... More

Had 10 days here in late September -early October. Beautifully set gardens and nice pool. Apartment was well done and clean. Basic kitchenette that opened up so you could do some very basic self catering but don't expect it to be like a fully equipped self catering place in UK. The hotel did breakfast which was pleasant. We used the... More

Lovely idyll tucked behind a gateway along Via Francisco Crispi, right on the harborside. Great location, professional and excellent service. Most accommodating. Short walk to the city center, and the ferry to the other Aeolian Islands. Staff was friendly and unassuming. WiFi spotty at best, but maybe that's not a bad thing. Put the tablet down.

The location and tranquility of this place is fantastic. Franki (I think that was his name), the manager, was very nice and friendly plus he spoke excellent English. The pool was good. However, our room wasn't that clean. The floor was a bit dirty as was the shelf in the bathroom. There were also squashed mosquitos on the wall -... More
