The staff were very accommodative, they helped us with luggage transport and transfer with our tight time table.
It was located about 15 minutes from Lipari. Beautiful views and the ocean was across the road. There were lovely restaurants metres away. The staff were welcoming and attentive. The rooms were huge, absolutely a place to recharge.
The bedding was hard but we have found that all over Sicily so perhaps a cultural difference.
Very nice and quiet place to stay. But it's good to have a scooter or car. We rented a car for few days, but there is also possibility to use a local bus, You can get the timetable at the reception. Ladies at the reception were very nice and helpful. Also, they offer a transport from Lipari port to the hotel for free. It has very nice terrace on the roof of the hotel, where you can sunbathe or sit in the evening. Next to the hotel is very nice restaurant.
Ev'rything was alwright. Maybe, some more salt breakfast (bacon, scrumbled egg, cheese...)
The place is very clean, cleaning people have been great. There was free transfer from and to the port.
The room: all rooms on the west side of the hotel (i.e. 40% overall) have terrible views. Basically, a concrete wall. Not at all as advertised on Booking.com. Much smaller, with no seating area outside. Lot of details in the room don't make sense: the kitchen corner took half the space, why would I need that where there's no dining table at all?? Just make a wardrobe out of that. Also, TV is useless, old and cannot even be turned towards the bed: it hangs on a fixed support looking the wrong way... (!) Air-conditioning and fridge are terribly noisy and display not working. Our driver told us we could "just go to the beach and get the sunbeds". We did so, and the owner yelled at us bad words and shouted that "he was sick of all those people from the hotel, they must stop coming", basically throwing our staff away. Same thing with the restaurant near the hotel, we were told there was a discount, the people at the restaurant said it wasn't applicable that week. People at the reception didn't provide any advance info about this, so we felt weird and treated very badly. Breakfast is pretty average. Will definitely not go back.
When you stay at Hotel Residence Acquacalda in Lipari, you'll be on the beach, within a 5-minute drive of Pilato Mountain and Cave di Pomice. Featured amenities include luggage storage and laundry facilities. A ferry terminal shuttle is provided at no charge, and free self parking is available onsite.
