“Adorable place!”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

Just returned from this fantastic place and want to go back there again. This hotel is an ideal choice for those who are looking for excellent service, breathtaking seaview and absolute quietness. The hotel is located 9 km from the centre of Lipari and this is a real advantage, because you can enjoy the beach which is not overcrowded and transparent sea which is just 10 m away from the entrance. Falling asleep at night you hear not the noise of people and cars passing by but only the sea waves coming up to the shore. We have rented a car to be more flexible on the island, it's also possible to rent a scooter, the owners can help with it. The rooms are spacious and lovely furnished. It's very clean and the bed is big and extremely comfortable. The room is even equipped with a small kitchen which is very useful. Breakfast is served in the restaurant nearby and is very rich with delicious croissants, cakes, yoghurts and fresh fruits from the owners' garden. The owners and staff are very friendly, you feel like at home from the very beginning. I can only strongly recommed this hotel for spending unforgettable vacation.

If you are looking for a quiet place, by the sea, in an unspoiled small fishing village of a delicious island, this is your place. Both room and bathroom were comfortable, large, very clean; there was a patio, too, with sea view. Very good and abundant Italian breakfast, including handmade cakes. Just across the street a wild rocky beach is waiting for you, with very few other people: you will need rubber shoes to walk on the beach because of the stones, but the sea is wonderful, I saw some dolphins off the coast. My strong suggestion is to rent a scooter if you are looking for some amusements at night, or if you plan to visit the other Eolie Islands, as the ferry leaves from Lipari Porto (9 km from Acquacalda). One trip in cab can be more expensive than the daily rental of the scooter. Veronica and Milena at the hotel will take care of your needs, they are lovely.

Room Tip: ask for a romm with sea view

We ended up staying just one night there, but we were very disappointed for not being able to stay longer. Excellent room, terrace, location, furniture, services. No flaws. We even received a car together with the room, because the hotel is not in the same city as the port. we picked up the car from the port.

Acquacalda is a small village and very quiet in May. This very pleasant hotel is set on the most remote stretch of Lipari Island. The owner and staff are very friendly and the breakfasts are delicious. There is an excellent seafood restaurant next door. The sun was hot, although it was also very windy at times. The air was perfumed by the broom and other flowers blooming on the hillsides. The views out to sea, with smoking Stromboli just visible on the horizon, were lovely, and the sunsets beautiful.

Room Tip: Looked like all rooms were quiet and had sea views

10 km from Lipari, the port of isle, easy to reach by car or scooter (the hotel have this kind of offer - room + car or scooter) you will find this great hotel with very nice rooms, furniture and also a mini kitchenette. Large terrace with sea view available also. The staff is very nice and helpful (saluti da Romania! carrot pie from breakfast was very good). Unfortunately we stayed only one night, but is a must to spend more then few days to see the entire island. Restaurant available near location.

Room Tip: First floor have terrace, main floor have garden

We stayed here for 2 nights in July 2012 and rented a scooter along with the room. The hotel called us before to ask when we would arrive and we were picked up at the port as was promised. The pebbled beach is just across the road and rooms are clean and spacious. All in all it's a good place to stay in Lipari. It is about 10 km from town, so having your own transport is a must when you are staying here.

Reviewed 7 November 2012

We visited Residence Acquacalda in September, in a period where not many tourists are around the island, and in particular in the village of Malfa, a bit far away from the main villages of Lipari or Canneto. This means that the place is really quiet, but also that you need a car or scooter to be able to move around and enjoy the surroundings. The silence allows you to hear the melody of the sea just across the street and to have it as a lullaby when you go to sleep. The owners do not speak English very well, but they are very kind and put all their efforts in ensuring everything is ok. At breakfast there are the standard Italian sweets, but if you ask in advance for something different, they'll prepare it for you. The rooms are comfortable, spacious and very clean, and the bathroom is quite large - only the shower could have been a bit larger too, it is quite narrow.
