We spent several days relaxing in and exploring Panarea while staying at Hotel Raya. Beautiful room and beautiful pool. We rose early to watch the sunrise from our secluded patio. Very happy people for staying here.
Here's the T: The hotel is in probably the best location in Panarea, in the highest point, and therefore offers amazing views from the rooms, breakfast area and the pool. The pool is great and the breakfast could have done with a bit more but...More

I do not think it means anything special. The hotel have a long history. The owner, Miriam's now dead husbond, build it, I think in the early 70'. They have some connections with Bali, anyways, it was very famous and very high class back then. The waitress'es, all very beautifull, worked topless and only with a bali sarong around their waist. I´ve worked there one summer, 1998, and I think they still survive living on there old reputation and of cause the beautifull setting. I´d just read the review that people have been writing about the hotel, and it´s for sure the quality doesn't equals the price.Is it a 4 or even a 5 star hotel? Well, another hotel would for sure had closed a long time ago if they had offered the same standard for that price. Therefor Im saying that they are living on there old reputations, if they had a heart in this projekt, they would have cuddled it and cured it. ;)
