Reviewed 21 May 2012

What a truly memorable experience. This is true understated style. Elegant and very comfortable rooms with beautiful views across the aeolien sea towards Stromboli. But what really makes the difference at this hotel is the exceptional courtesy and professional care by the staff. Nothing is too much trouble. The restaurant is a very high standard, the spa is an oasis of calm and trickling water. We visited in May when the wild flowers, in masses of vivid colour, are quite extraordinary. We are joining the growing number of regular returning guests.

Room Tip: Ask about the difference between standard and superior rooms.

Spent three days at Hotel Signum, could easily have stayed longer! A beautiful location, with an infinity pool looking out to Stromboli; spa; lovely grounds with breakfast served on the outdoor terrace; very friendly and helpful staff; attractive poolside room with terrace. Although the restaurant has a good reputation, didn't eat there as there was little or no vegetarian choice - but do try Ristorante Pizzeria A Lumeredda which is a short walk from the Hotel. Good bus service to take you sightseeing around the island. Hotel Signum is definitely on the agenda for a return visit!

Room Tip: Poolside room was lovely - but felt slightly restricted by sunbeds being placed directly off the ter...

We recently stayed here in a deluxe ocean view room for several days to celebrate my partner's milestone special occassion and couldn't have been happier. Room was simple but gorgeous and the view from our private patio overlooking the pool was sublime. Restaurant food was lovely and we also enjoyed a massage and treatments at the hotel's magnificent spa. The hotel is well located - we hired a vespa after getting off the ferry at Santa Marina and travelled the short distance to Malfa with the hire company dropping our bags at the hotel - highly recommended. Great base for exploring Salina - don't miss nearby Pollara for a swim and he hotel will even pack a delicious lunch on request. They also provide a delightful range of desserts to our room with the local Malvasia wine on hearing it was a special occasion. We will be back and couldn't recommend this hotel more highly if you are after a romantic windswept getaway.

Family business and friendly staff,
we arrived in Salina by hydrofoil with no reservation and have walked in a few hotels before reaching Malfa and discovered this hidden gem.
The staff here is by far the most friendly that you can find on the island.

we will be back soon

This is a breathtaking location for this stunning hotel, cleverly scattered in different buildings amongst scores of lemon trees and fragrant flowers. On a tiny island in the middle of nowhere, with very little to do but properly relax far away from hectic reality, it is a paradise if you want to simply chill out and eat very well! The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful and the food - some of the best meals we've ever had, including the most delicious breakfast (including a variety of home made cakes!!) all served on a pretty terrace.The infinity pool looks out to sea and beyond - a steaming volcano, the rooms are simply decorated with welcoming fans and white linen. There is a luxurious outdoor spa to boot. The local bus service takes you easily meandering along the coastal roads to other villages, if you can drag yourself away from a pool side sun bed to go explore. Amazing.

I have never been to a "boutique hotel", just the usual business travel hotels. I went to Signum recently for my honeymoon and would like to go back every day! The perfect hotel for a honeymoon. Instantly relaxing. Peacefully quiet. Beautiful pool. Homely and warming rooms. Oodles of character. Friendly and helpful staff. Superb food. Fine wine. I could go on and on and on, the list is endless. For me/us, it was the holiday of a lifetime (I hope my spouse agrees!) and I have nothing but fond memories. Go there!

.. make up for sweet but amateuristic service, and sparsely 'decorated' rooms.
We were quite disappointed by the standard rooms, that even though they claim to be 4*, are rather the level of an unrated and unpretentious B&B. Definitely go for a deluxe room, and try to get a room looking out over the sea; as a lot of rooms actually don't have a view at all.
But enough said about the weak points, as Hotel Signum does have some good points too!
The food is very good, and the view from the terrace breathless. Another reason to go is without a doubt the amazing hydro-spa; which reminds most of an authentic roman bath experience, complete with recuperated authentic materials. The hydro ritual in itself is a wonderful relaxing experience, and the combination of the scrub and mud in open air, dried up under the sun, makes for super soft and glowing skin. But if you are up for indulging, the beauty rituals are a great experience.

Room Tip: Go for the higher priced rooms, and insist on a good view when booking.
