This hotel is a small jewel hidden from plain view in the hills outside Marsala. Rooms are excellent , if a little dated. Location is perfect for exploring eastern Sicily and Palermo, Corleone etc. Food excellent. You must be a car user to stay here but the price more than compensates you.
Excellent hotel and very peaceful at the the end of June. Fantastic swimming pool, good rooms and excellent service. Breakfast was typically Italian but eggs were available at times. Apart from the pool there is not that much to do at the Hotel but we were happy as we spent most of our time in Marsala or visiting other towns. Marsala has plenty of excellent restaurants within walking distance from the hotel even if the first part of the walk isnt that pleasant. The local Bucanieri was very good although a little expensive but you can get good value if you choose carefully. The Nashville which is just a little further away is also excellent and good value. The Illy Bar/cafe is also very good for lunch and the staff are very friendly.
The only problem with our break was the standard of the car hire pick up/service at Palermo Airport but that's another story.
We really enjoyed it. Front Desk staff speaks English. Hotel is next to the city center Pallazzo where everything happens. My 17 year old son wanted to go to the beach, and the hotel offers a "free of charge" taxi service to/from their beach area which is about 4km from the hotel, and there is a really nice Gazebo restaurant, very reasonable. Beach chairs/umbrella 8 euros /day. Shopping/entertainment and excellent restaurants/cafes/wine bars surround the hotel. The ocean is 2 blocks away. So happy we chose this hotel, because the other hotels are out side the main city, and not in walking distance of the restaurants/cafes etc. So although you might be beach front you would not have access to the great shops/restaurants etc. Restaurants do not open until 7:30-8pm. Don't miss visiting the salt mines about 2miles away, and the local acheological museam which has the only known surviving Pheonician boat.
"Gorgeous hotel and very handy for Trapani airport"
Loved this hotel. We needed to stay one night close to Trapani airport as we were arriving late. This was ideal, only 10 mins away by cab. It was welcoming, clean, pretty, the pool was clean, nice breakfast buffet. I felt as though my holiday had started as soon as I stepped foot in the place. They upgraded us too, to a poolside room. Heaven! I'd heartily recommend.
