We had a great stay in this small apartment complex. The apartment itself was clean, well equipped and air conditioned with a small patio outside. The little swimming pool and terrace area was a nice addition too. Although the apartment wasn't situated in the town centre, the free bikes meant that we were only a five minute cycle from Favignana town with the port and all the bars/restaurants and shops. Also, beautiful bays Cala Rossa and Cala Azzuro with warm, turquoise waters for swimming were only a fifteen minute cycle from the apartment. All in all, a great place to stay on this lovely island.
Manager communicated details well ahead of travel, but failed to mention a 25 Euro cleaning fee until we were already in transit. When explained to me in Italian upon my arrival, I thought we would be charged only if we did not clean up after ourselves when leaving. All trash removed and dishes done, we left the apartment nearly as clean as when we arrived, and my credit card was still charged for the cleaning fee.
Booked offseason, we required heat in our room, but the heater did not work. The next day and after a very cold night, we were given a second room with a working heater, but less of a view. The ferry did not sail the day we were to go to the island due to high winds and waves. I notified the manager of our inability to get to Levanzo. I was still charged for the first night but I was offered an extra day at no charge as compensation. I did not take the extra day for fear of not being able to ferry off the island in time to catch a flight out the following day.
Brought most groceries with us from Trapani since market on island offers limited choices and hours. Excellent bakery in the village. Wonderful island for hiking and relaxation. Fully furnished apartment right down to the coffee. Nicely decorated.

The hotel is within walking distance from the centre and the pier (10-15 mins). The service is really good and the hotel is very clean and tidy. The members of the staff were always very helpful and friendly; they made us feel at home from the beginning. A friend had recommended us the hotel and she was definitely right about it!

Pros: apartment was clean, everything seemed to work, wasn't disturbed by noise, very cheap
Cons: basic furnishings; would also have been useful to have had a few more kitchen basics supplied e.g. cooking oil, salt etc.
Also, it would be churlish to complain that the owners didn't really speak English when I don't really speak Italian, but it is worth bearing in mind. In fact very few of the locals seem to speak English well, as most of the tourism seems to be from Italians.
Overall though, the pros outweigh the cons, and if you can get a good rate it represents great value for money.
