We stayed at Hotel La Piazza for two days at the start of June 2013.
We arrived in Panarea at about 9:30am and were met by a golf cart to take us and the luggage to the hotel which was a short distance from the harbour. We were surprised that we were allowed to check in straight away and given an upgrade to room with a sea view and invited to have breakfast.
The room had been recently decorated; the terrace was private with walls separating it from adjacent rooms, the walls had plants growing over them. The terrace had a small table and two comfortable chairs. It was most attractive.
The salt water pool was a reasonable size and clean, there were plenty of loungers and there was a large covered area with tables and chairs.
The continental buffet breakfast was good with a good selection of items. We did not eat in the hotel but used the cafes and restaurants in the town.
The island is small and within a few hours everything can be seen, but it is a good place to relax and the views are spectacular wherever you are. The majority of people staying seemed to be Italian, although tour boats with a range of nationalities visited in the middle of the day.
There is very little street lighting so a torch would be useful on a dark night to light the way back to the hotel.
The staff were very friendly and helpful; when we left they waved us off like lifelong friends.
