“Il mare di Lampedusa e indimenticabile”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

We have just returned from La Rosa dei venti in Lampedusa and what we found there was more then we've expected. It was all thought from the beginning as a concept. The rooms are traditionally, but very good taste decorated, there is a terrace where you can take an appetiser in the evening or have a dinner all together in the italian style with 3 round big tables where you can share food with your table mates. But the best of La Rosa offers is a daily boat trip on sea, where Giacomo and Marco prepare the really italian food we have eaten in all Italy and they take you to swim in the best places they know. And the sea in Lampedusa is something that you won't find any elsewhere: even if it has 10 meters, you see the white bottom, we've been to Maldives and the water is the same, except the corals. Or how the italians say: " e indimenticabile". But this concept is for those who really love the sea and swimming, if you don't like them, don't go, you'll waist you money. Ciao Giacomo e Marco e Franco e Francesca and all the big italian family we've been in the middle of! Auguri!

Elisa and her staff know how to treat the guests. From the moment we arrived until the second we left we felt as if we were cherished guests. I cannot find one bad thing to say about the place or the experience. The only reason why I have not written this review previously is because I was striving to find the right words to compliment La Rosa.
We opted for the all inclusive package which included one meal in their amazing restaurant, personal transportation and the boat excursions daily. I would not recommend that you avoid this option. The meal was prepared by the staff consisting of only fresh caught fish, local wines and other local delicacy's. The boat... WOW! The boat. It really completes the experience. The captain and first mate (Marco and Giacomo - Hello from Texas!) made us feel as if we were family and prepared AMAZING meals on the boat. They took us to a few of their favorite spots around the island. The island consists of the most jello like crystal blue waters and the boat provided us with snorkels and fins so that we could explore the region. Every stop we made around the coastline was just as or more beautiful than the next.
I would recommend this for a romantic trip, an adventurous trip, or even a family gathering. We cannot wait to go back. As global travelers with adventurous spirits, we find it hard to plan ANY trip without the topic of going back to Lampedusa and to the La Rosa coming up in our conversation.
We WILL be back Elisa! Soon I hope.

the boat experience was really to remember; the boat, the captain and his one-man crew, captain Giacomo was a very good cook, made delicious fish and pasta dishes, the hotel was beautiful amid the wasteland of Lampedusa, the owners were not really friendly, but the staff was, the diners included in the price of the hotel were not of the same quality as the boat lunches, 7 nights were definitely too long in the island but for 4 days with good weather it was a very nice experience, with rabitisland as variation on the boat.

La Rosa dei venti is a small resort located in lampedusa's island, Sicily. Everything is fine here and we came back once again. The owners,Francesco & Elisa, and all the staff work to make your staying fabulous. The day is preatty scheduled: after having a good breakfast, enjoy the daily cruises on the boat of la rosa dei venti. Giacomo, the captain, and Marco will show you the best bays and beaches, where the water is transparent and crystalline. Cuddled by the waves, you can relax and regenerate, swim and have great snorkeling, even make new friendship with the other guests. Plus, you will eat on board spectacular fish cooked 'sicilian style' by the captain. You will test the taste of freshly caught fish, and appreciate the grace of someone who does his job with simplicity and love.
The day ends at the pool, where it served the 'aperitif'.
The room are simple, but confortable and clean.
Very sad for the end of the vacation, we left la rosa dei venti club with a heavy heart.

What a great place to stay! The boat experience was absolutely fantastic. The daily excursions to the beaches and grottos was absolutely amazing. The turqoise water. It was like swimming in a pool. What was the most fun was the food prepared by Giacomo on the boat. Excellent, Bravo Giacomo!! I must not forget Marco the Sous Chef! Bravo Marco. It was a little too windy for me and the water was cool. Don't go to Lampedusa for night life or if you don't like fish. Gemma was very nice to us. She took care of breafast and the evening appetizers and prosecco. Bravo Gemma.

I just returned from a fantastic holiday on the island of Lampedusa, South of Sicily. I stayed at the " La Rosa dei Venti Club" a hotel located on a hill on the island with stunning views of all the island and a lovely breeze which cools you on the hot summer nights. The 2 owners Elisa and Francesco were absolutely fab and very welcoming. I was alone but never felt like I was alone. They ensure guests mingle together and there is instantly a great atmosphere which is fostered by the first dinner all together on the Sunday night. The highlight of the trip however were the wonderful daily boat trips on an 18 m sailing boat. Each day a different place and amazing fish lunches cooked by Giacomo & Giacomo who are also happy to give tips and tricks to make your own Sicilian dinners at home. The water and island is simply stunning: much better than the Maldives or Carribean and no need to take a 10 h flight to get there. Connections are great from Palermo or Catania airport or direclty from Rome, Milan, Bologna.
