We recently celebrated my friend's 70th birthday in this family-run, friendly hotel on the pretty island of Lipari. Lush gardens with bougainvillea, gardenia and palms lead down to the pristine pool. The rooms are spacious and extremely clean. Our rooms had their own private patio area; the bathrooms either had spacious showers with built-in seats or large jacuzzi baths with showers. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff; special thanks must be given to Gaetano who arranged for mislaid medication to be obtained from the pharmacy and brought to the hotel, organised our return trip (ferry and taxi) back to the airport in Catania and dealt with never-ending queries in impeccable English. Margherita was of great assistance too as was Pieter who ran the restaurant faultlessly and translated the menu for us every evening. The hotel is centrally located so we could walk to the shops and the archeological museum from the back entrance to the hotel.
