“Nice service, wonderful view”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

We were here 3 nights on our honeymoon in Sicily and what a delight. We were met at the harbour with a golf chart to bring us and our luggage to the hotel (spontaneously, we did not know or asked for it) and at the reception we were truly welcomed. They upgraded our room so we now had sea view. So nice! The bougainvillea, the blue sky, the great breakfast, service with a smile from cleaning lady till receptionist, a nice pool (with sea view)… All in all we had a wonderful stay and can recommend it highly.

We hope we can have you back here in Panarea for your anniversaries.

My husband & I stayed here for 4 nights recently and had a blissful stay. We arrived on the early ferry and were met by staff to take us to the hotel. We were at reception by 10am so didn't expect a room but we were checked in straight away which was great. The rooms are dated and definitely need some tlc. Nothing too special really & the bed wasn't great. Everything else however was excellent. Lovely pool area with stunning views (although pool bar is ridiculously overpriced) and private access to beach. Lovely selection at breakfast with delicious omelettes made to order & good coffee whatever way you like. Service throughout our stay was excellent. Staff here were so friendly and Richard who works in the lounge area was such a professional & very friendly. Hope to return here, definitely recommend!

Thank you so much for the lovely review. Sorry just could not stay in one of the many rooms we have finished renovating, with beautiful bathrooms with Caltagirone’s lava stone
Thank you to have enjoyed our breakfast, which our chef Gaetano devotes a lot of passion, with a choice of products that is able to satisfy every request , to start a good day to all our guests.
We also hope to have you back here, and thanks for the nice words,

kind regards

Having come from a completely dysfunctional family, what a pleasure it was to to discover an exceptionally functional family: that of Fabio Pollino at Hotel La Piazza on Panarea.

The people at La Piazza are truly the creme de la creme of hospitality.

There is Fabio himself: a model of understated efficiency, who has imbued La Piazza with an essence of effortless elegance; it reinforces the feeling that one instinctively knows when something is right ... and it is, at all times, in this haven of hospitality.

The Maitre d'hotel, Richard is blessed with a genuine desire to make his guests feel at ease by providing the most splendid service I have experienced in more than four decades of dining out. The attention to detail of this master of his craft has to be seen to be believed: nothing ... and I mean nothing at all is too much trouble for Richard. As he modestly puts it, " this is my duty, but it is also my pleasure".

The chef, Gaetano Rapicavoli, is a consumate artist of the culinary craft. It hjas been said that the true test of a chef's competence is to be found in the preparation of a perfect omlette; in which case Gaetano excells beyond measure.

Room Tip: Go for a room with a view of the ocean.

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...
