Travelers' Choice
The Hotel L'Ariana has the charm of a colonial villa, built at the beginning of the last century on the rock overlooking the sea, and can offer all the comforts of a modern hotel. It is undoubtedly the ideal destination for those seeking a totally relaxing holiday in contact with nature. A short walk from the port of Rinella is the ideal starting point for excursions to other islands of the Aeolian archipelago. Attached to the Hotel is the Lounge Restaurant and Bar La Grotta, where you can enjoy unique and refined delicacies typical of the island of Salina and sip an excellent aperitif with the view of the sunset over the sea. Let yourself be lulled by the breeze and the melodious sounds of the waves by spending a holiday at our facility, where the staff will be at your complete disposal to make you enjoy a stay or simply an unforgettable lunch or dinner.

We were two guests staying here at the beginning of September 2021. Letizia and her colleague at the reception made us feel immediately welcome and were very friendly and accommodating in all our requests. The hotel is a nice renovated villa with a small but cozy beach of stones and crystal water. Unfortunately we only stayed there for two nights but we will come again. We recommend also renting the electric scouter for the day to discover the beautiful island in a sustainable way

Holidays 2021 again in Salina ( a truly gem hidden in the Mediterranean Sea). I have chosen to come back to this hotel because of welcoming feelings I had last time I visited. With much of my surprise a lot of things have changed, offering an even better quality service than last year (which I couldn’t believe it was possible as it was already amazing). Alessio sorted out our airport transfer, car rental ( they have their own for the guests: a new FIAT500 cabriolet!!!) and welcomed us with his big smile : welcome home (and it really feels like being at home with friends). Immediately he proudly showed us the changes: the solarium has been partially covered with a wooden canopy that creates a lovely shaded area with sofas and chairs, lovely. In the opposite corner there is a hot tub facing the ocean and the sunset!!!! In the lower level solarium, next to the Rocky beach, there is another canopy with sun beds. Last year was very hot without cover but now it is simply perfect. Rooms haven’t changed and the quality of breakfast eaten in LA GROTTA RESTAURANT sea view terrace is always top. Everybody is always smiling and polite and willing to chat, like you would do with a friend. More improvements are on the way so I have another good reason (if I needed one) to come back again. L’Ariana really is a unique place, well done, bravo, bravo!!!!!

I visited this hotel 10 years ago, I am back this year and I cannot believe how much it changed for the better. Everything has been beautifully renovated and looks stunning but the old charme that fascinated me the first time I was there has not faded, on the contrary, it permeates stronger than before and makes this place a fairytale setting. Superb service, from start to finish, staff very proactive, always smiling and willing to help. Breathtaking the view from the terrace overlooking the cliff and the ocean. Very affordable price considering the quality of the experience offered. Rich breakfast, granita is a must!! Nice restaurant just next door with friendly service. Look no further, you have found heaven on earth.

We started our visit to Salina with a one night stay in Hotel L’Ariana. And what a place to start!! On our arrival Laura was so warm and friendly - probably the best greeting I have had in any hotel anywhere in the world. The hotel is located with a fantastic view over the sea and the beach at Rinella. The room was extremely comfortable and the hotel in general was spotlessly clean - again, probably the cleanest hotel I’ve ever visited. Unfortunately, the restaurant was closed (as the season was pretty much over in Rinella), but we were able to eat in the Grotta bar/caffe where Dario and Marie treated us kindly and professionally and served us delicious cocktails, wine and local food. Perfect. We left the next morning for a week’s stay in Malfa, but we were sad to leave. Alessio was equally friendly and gave us some restaurant recommendations for Salina - he even offered to call them on our behalf when we were ready. Rinella is a very quiet village and the season appears to be shorter there than elsewhere on the island. Although it is quiet, it is charming and pretty and is worthy of a visit. The hotel building is a beautiful old palazzo and the interior has been renovated tastefully and to a high standard, and I hope that it is able to attract more visitors to the village. We loved our stay in L’Ariana and urge anyone considering a trip to Salina to stay here. You won’t be disappointed at all. David and Alison.

It was a pleasure and we finished our trip in the best way possible in this beautiful hotel !!! The staff of the hotel was very nice and gave us really thoughful advices. They offered us an outclassed room with view on the sea (wow), it was very kind of them!!! The breakfast was the most awesome we’ve had during our trip (out of 3 eolian islands). About the Lounge Bar: Dario and Mary were so lovely with us. We won’t forget their drink, we recommand « Rinella » and « La Grotta » it is so tasty !!! We wish to come back here soon !!!
