In this hotel they keep horses in an area in the sun all day, without any shelter !!. The horses are returned to their stables in the evening. They try to go in the shade (under a tree, which consist of a very small shady part) during the afternoon there is no shade at all !! This is pure cruelty.

Well ... what, in your words, you have to be incredulous.
Originally, our structure was born as a riding school and it was called "The Friends of the Horse" that is to say what the horses represent for us.
During the day, our horses are interested in different activities, so they pass several times from one environment to another, and in this you pay attention to the climate of the day by establishing the compatibility of the phases. Being our guests for a short time and being able to say that we have understood how we operate seems to me quite dazed.
Our horses, as is evident, enjoy excellent health and have at their disposal a stallion that deals exclusively with them.
Thank you for your consideration that gave us the opportunity to clarify the state of things.
Greetings.

Lampedusa in a small island full of cozy spots, amazing blue sea , little "calas" and friendly relaxed people...you will enjoy it at its best by renting a scooter and strolling around , trying local "arancini di pesce" or "granite with panna" at local Via Roma bars .
Costa House is the ideal place to stay if you are looking for an extremely quiet, welcoming place serving food for Gods (by the way Pope Francesco was here and ate here...) and a landlord, Giuseppe, who will do everything to make you feel at home .
Also Staff is extremely friendly and funny, Suite rooms are large and all the rest is just perfect. Don't miss the boat trip with Pasquale ...great guy and lots of true (?!) stories about Lampedusa. GRAZIE GIUSEPPE! we loved every minute of it - Cristina and Fabio

This place is excellent in all aspects..To say everything, the entrance from the main street is not that welcoming but as soon as you enter the drive it is something else..The place is extremely well kept, tidy and clean. The owner and hosts are very friendly and they immediately see to your needs and make you feel at home. The room facilities are all good and food is superb with good value for money..My special thanks goes to Peppe, the owner.

Room Tip: The rooms all look nice. An early wake up by roosters is possible.

Much which had been said in the previous comments is true. However, to praise the food there is widely exaggerated. I have had 3 dinners and all were below anything one would expect in Italy; in particular the pasta dishes were terrible.
Cleanliness and friendly service need praise. It would howevr be nice if a room with 3 beds could provide more than on glass cup in the bathroom and if there would be chairs and a small table in the room. The Wi-Fi is available only in the reception area. It would cost only about 100.- Euro to install two Wi-fi repeaters in the outside corridors to allow reception in the rooms.

Room Tip: Wi-Fi only in reception area. You need to hire a scooter or car to reach town or beaches.

I spent the summer vacation on the island of Lampedusa, south of Sicily, at the Resort Costa House. This resort has a warm, friendly athmospere and delicious food. Its setting is very quiet and secluded, ideal for a relaxing vacation. Service is impeccable and the garden is very well kept. The island of Lampedusa, very close to the Tunisian coast, is of stunning beauty with crystalclear water, its wild and rough nature, a few sandy beaches of which Isola dei Conigli is a real gem, many small splendid harbours with overhanging cliffs. Lampedusa is a crown jewel of the Mediterranean.

Room Tip: Superior rooms are more spacious compared to Standard rooms.
