the place to stay when you are looking for comfort and adventure at the same trip.
The view from the rooms and the topfloor terras were unforgettable. The flexibility of the staff to prepare dinner at 23.30 after we climbed the vulcano was perfect.

Perfect place - a gem.
Beds could be softer but that's how it is in Italy...
It's called "luxury apartments but should rather be classified as a boutique hotel. Fantastic rooms with attention to every detail. Beautiful pool area - the pool is small but Deep. the owners and staff are super friendly and accomodating - you really feel like you are their personal guests. If we go back to Stromboli - we will certainly stay here again. Niklas / Sweden

Nothing, except that we would have liked to get milk and some more tea bags with the breakfast brought in our apartment every morning. We should have asked and I am sure we would have got it.
Fantastic location with a fantastic swimming pool. We just simply loved this place! Everything was perfect. We would love to come back. Stromboli island is worth the travel and the discovery. We loved our breakfasts brought in our private apartment and eaten in our outdoor garden/patio with a large choice of fresh food. It is also possible to order delicious and tasty local Sicilian food for lunch and dinner. That is very convenient. The apartment was spotless clean. It has a private patio/terrace at the ground floor and a superb roof terrace with a magnificent view on sea and the Stromboli volcano. The swimming pool is very beautiful although not very large.

lovely stay in beautiful small hotel
Nothing really. Our sole regret was that we'd only booked one night!
We were fortunate to be given an upgrade. The room was large and we had two bathrooms, as well as a courtyard where breakfast was brought, + an enormous terrace. Not often can you sit having breakfast overlooked by an active volcano!

Beautiful place but lacking in service
The staff were hard to find and not very helpful (no warm greetings or advice here). The rooms had sheer white curtains that let in all the light. They gave us a few pieces of fruit the first day but apart from that, there was no fruit for breakfast.
Beautiful views and rooms. We loved the swimming pool and the proximity to the beach.

BEST HOTEL IN ITALY
NOTING! NOTHING! NOTHING!
i am involved in tourism industry for almost 20 years, i am usually very demanding and fault-find about hotels , while ,this one ,in the corner of the isolated island, impressed me. for our 21 days Italy trip , this hotel is simply the best ,in all respect, location, food, facility ,service, you name it , the host Federica is a Goddess ,she is UNBELIEVABLE. don't hesitate to click the 'booking' button, this will promise you a wonderful journey in Stromboli

When we found out that Stromboli has no water source so water is brought by ship every two days we felt bad that our towels had been changed so frequently. We think guests would like to be informed about this and given the chance to be more green - maybe put a sign in the bathroom. Everything else was perfect!
The owner and staff were delightful and went the extra mile for us. Location and views were perfect. The garden and pool are so calm and beautiful. Try the food - it's amazing, best caprese salad I've ever eaten. Can't wait to go back to Stromboli and to Il Gabbiano Relais

sometime it is better to wait till last minute
we could not arrive in theproperty due to high sea and the fact that no ship sailed to the island!! yet, because of its policy - the hotel recieved the money..

A wonderful, small hotel on a magical island.
As is the case with almost everywhere in Stromboli, getting to the property involves a steep climb, so if you're not very fit would advise a taxi (AKA a golf cart!), from the port. The owners are very happy to arrange this, but you'll find plenty at the port waiting anyway.
A beautiful quiet property, with views of Stromboli. A well stocked fridge, including a welcome bottle of wine and a lovely breakfast delivered to your private terrace, which in our case was overlooking the pool. The roof terrace has great views. Could not fault this place - wonderful!
