The Hotel is amazing. Located on the beautiful island Salina, it is a lovely boutique hotel with a quite personal and charming style. The food can be described as modern sicilian and is quite delicious! The host family and stuff is always attentive and lovely, so as a guest you can enjoy the time as quality time. The principe is an oasis to come down and relax.

Every, single person who works at this hotel puts their heart and soul into it every day. They go out of their way to help guests and make them feel welcome. The hotel is stunning - common spaces are beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. There are lots of places to read, relax, or have a cocktail. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and private and there are views everywhere! There is also a wonderful pool area with beds, chairs, umbrellas, towels, and a snack and drink bar. The food is wonderul, throughtful and authentic to the region. It's honestly hard to put into words just how much of a gem this place is. I've traveled widely and it was one of the most special, heartwarming places I have ever been. I highly recommend it. Just make sure you stay long enough (at least 3 nights!) it's a journey!

This hotel is not a swanky five star glitz hotel crawling with celebrities, it is an utterly charming family run boutique hotel which offers the perfect location to enjoy Malfa, Salina and the Aeolian islands in general. It is small, just 12 rooms I think, but beautiful things come in small packages and we enjoyed the most wonderful stay in early September. The setting is very tranquil with lovely views, the staff are faultless and delightful, and the food is to die for. Sitting on the hill above Malfa the hotel is on the edge of town with views out to sea including the volcanic island of Stromboli. There rooms are tiered on different levels which feed down to super swimming pool with very comfortable sun beds and a quiet poolside bar. Currently four family members make up the management / ownership team and they are all magnificent in their chosen roles, but a special mention should go to chef Silvana for her amazing daily menus. The food is fresh, generous and perfectly balanced; and always served with smile in very homely surroundings. The journey to Salina is somewhat convoluted which is a good thing as hopefully it will remain unspoilt for years to come; but if you fancy a quiet break and you have time on your side there can't be a better place to stay than Hotel Principe di Salina.
