We stayed here for my son’s wedding, the hotel is well positioned for the port and the town. The property is very well maintained with not a bump or marks noticed, it is excellent to stay at a place so well maintained.
Our stay at Hotel Mea was charming. We stayed in an oceanfront room with a terrace overlooking the sea. The view was great, and the garden was spacious and a highlight. The place was right, although a little dated and the air-conditioning was not working well. The staff was exceedingly friendly and helpful. They also recommended me the best snorkeling in cozumel tours for my family. We ate dinner in a restaurant one night, and the food was delicious.
We were booked to stay at Villa Enrica for 4 nights, but about a week before, we got a notice that they would be closed in early April, but they provided us with a similar suite accommodation at their sister hotel nearby – Hotel Mea.
Actual Hotel Mea was probably better located for access to ferry, the main shopping and dining streets in Lipari, and the Hotel Mea was also excellent with terrific views over the harbor and the town. While Hotel Mea was a bit noisier, being closer to populated areas, with barking dogs at night, it was a very acceptable alternative, and we believe we would have enjoyed either hotel equally.
Staff and service were amiable and helpful with all questions, including trips and excursions to nearby islands. Breakfast was adequate with bread, croissants, cheese and cold cuts among other things, and for extra charge freshly squeezed orange juice or hot eggs/omelets/bacon. For the price, which was by far our most expensive of our 3 weeks in southern Italy/Sicily, the breakfast should have been better.
I had the most romantic and lovely time here at this “charming” hotel. Loved the staff, view, the food, and the beautiful purple decor of my suite! The hotel was a perfect walking distance from downtown too.
The views from the patio and pool were amazing – just like a postcard. Chimera restaurant had a great breakfast included, but we also decided to eat there one night for dinner, and it was our best meal of all vacation, both the food and the presentation. But the best part was the staff, who made us feel like we now have Italian relatives!
