“A gorgeous spot for a lovely hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

We stayed here for a few nights and had a really wonderful relaxing time. The staff are kind and attentive, rooms spotless, food delicious and the seawater pool a real plus. Panarea is beautiful and this hotel compliments its surroundings. It is in a very good position for access to the many lovely walks around the island or to the little port. A great place to unwind.

Room Tip: Any room would do as they all have good views.

Everything about Panarea is stylish, and this hotel is no exception. The views and the scenery are unbeatable. It's not so much that the decor is fabulous but that it is simple and complements the natural beauty of the island, which is the way of much of the architecture on Panarea. The rooms are basic as well. I do wish that there was another window and not just the door

We enjoyed 5 nights at this small Hotel facility in Panarea. Accommodation was more than adequate, extremely well kept and the service levels provided by ALL staff was excellent. Breakfast staff knew exactly what we liked by weeks end, and were always assisting in offering us more than what was displayed. We utilized all the facilities including the SPA. The massage was to die for. Probably amongst the best therapeutic massages I have had the pleasure of. Both my son and I went back for seconds in fact. A little disappointed that there was a restaurant advertised on the website (including menu) than when we enquired we were directed to the restaurant next Door which is part of Hotel Cincotta. (this as it turned out is owned by the sister of Hotel LA PIazza). As it worked out was probably the biggest disappointment of our stay, as the food was both very ordinary and an absolute rip off in price. Not with standing everything else was very good, and once we knew the lay of the land we simply made use of the many great restaurants on the island. Its a little unusual having the owner circling the premises every minute of the day including utilizing the facilities such as the pool etc. none the less we enjoyed it and suggest we will be happy to return next year. Just be aware all rooms don't have WIFI, (although advertised as so). This was a little annoying. the first night we stayed there we had good wifi access, second day we had to change rooms and from then had nothing, same went for Pay TV.

Room Tip: All rooms have sea views. However try and get the Lidia rooms as they both have pay tv and good qual...

I stayed 4 nights here. The staff are lovely, and some even remember your name/ what you order at breakfast.. Very family feel.
Pool is adequate but need to get a bed early or you miss out.
Small beach at bottom of pool area is great, clear water and mini sand area.
Restaurant wasn't open during our stay so can't comment on that.

If I were to critique anything it'd be that most of the rooms need a facelift (very 80's)
The beds are hard and cheap feeling, pillows flat as pancakes.
The continental breakfast needs more savory options for those of us that don't eat croissants and bread!
(Thank god for the boiled eggs or i wouldn't have been able to eat anything)

Massages here by the resident masseuse is HEAVEN!!
I've had a lot of massages in my life but this woman takes the buck.
Her Thai massage is incredible.
I wish she was in my city, I'd see her every week!

Otherwise oberall the hotel is good, the location is central and convenient and the views are stunning.

Would probably stay here again if I came back to island

The three of us had a short-term stay at La Piazza Hotel and were allocated in one of Villa Cincotta Hotel's rooms with sea view placed on a magnificent 'maiolica' style plated terrace facing the whole Panarea Bay. The room was too small for three people though tiny on the whole. Excellent service from the staff members at all levels. Beautiful location both at the pool and the private sandy beach. Delicious treatment from Ms Lidia Cincotta, the owner, and full availability from the reception and concierge. Strategical position for all islands venues and facilities. Very good breakfast and easements for transfers from/to the harbour.

Just visited this hotel for a cocktail by the pool. The place was lit by these little fiacolla giving a warm glow all over the place. Very Romantic!!

There was live music ( a young guy singing and playing a guitar who was v. very talented )- a big plus however he left too early at 0930pm :(

This place is NOT CHEAP.. Bill : €30 for 2 mojitos.. but I must say it was the best passion fruit mojito I have ever tasted! Also, the friendly waiter brought us lots and lots of snacks - crisps, peanuts, pretzels, a platter consisting of small pizzas, arancini, onion rings, and mozzarella balls, another platter with fish bites, and also fresh fish on toasted bread. Therefore I'd say that the price of a cocktail justifies the whole 'meal'.

Would visit again for a special romantic night out

I spent two weeks in the magic Island of Panarea at the Hotel La Piazza. I could not be happier. The owner of the hotel became a friend, always humorous and engaging. She has the charm of the Sicilians. The hotel is wonderful: spacious room, nice bathroom, wonderful terrace overlooking the crystal clear waters of Panarea. A few steps, maybe more than just a few but no more than 30, take you to the small beach below the hotel. Or you can swim in the pool, with sea water, at the hotel level. You can walk 2 minutes to the hub of the village and rent a boat for about 50 euros and go to the small island around Panarea. It is all there and this is all you need to have a vacation that brings you back to the times when the Greek Good Aeolus (hence Aeolian Island of which Panarea is one) tormented the homecoming Ulysses.

Room Tip: Pick a room in the adjacent Villa Lydia, owned by the hotel. They are moire private and the views, i...
