Wonderful hotel; food was terrific

Posted 17-Jul-2017
Pros: Every need was supplied.
Cons: Can't change the bit isolated location but it was private and quiet. Will need a car to get from place to place and to the beach
Location: Lovely town of Belastrate. Wonderful beach area with all kinds of activities. A car is needed to get to the beach and other areas.
A group of 21 family members stayed here with 4 days of overlap. It was an amazing orchestration of rooms and beds. The facilities were extremely clean and accommodating to our needs. The restaurant for dinner facilities (opens at 7:30 pm) were nice on the veranda viewing the sunset. Food was delicious and the best I'd had during my entire 6 day stay. The connolo was to die for! Daytime cafe espresso was good but only had limited food service.

Too far away from humanity

Posted 14-Oct-2016
The staff were pleasent and the appartment was very nice. BUT there were no amenities on site and the resort is a distance away from the nearest town. There is no public transport and a trip to Mondello (which is 20 minuets outside of Palermo) cost us €80 in a taxi one way. We were not told that it was absolutely necessary to rent a car to do every day activities so in the end we had to leave. Also for anyone renting cars in Italy be very careful as the road rules are ignored with blatant disregard and can be a very dangerous

Beautiful Sicily

Highly recommend Balestrate, less tourists. Nice little town with good restaurants and close proximity to clean sandy beaches. A car is necessary though to get around to the surrounding town. only 35 mins from palermo airport.

Excellent Stay

Posted 27-Aug-2016
Pros: Great Locations, clean and well maintained room/apartments with all comfort, amazing view, great staff and amazing restaurant
Cons: We loved overall everything but the Villaggio should improve the Wi-fi service especially for Foreign tourist that like us will need it time to time.
Location: Great location up the hill by the small town of Balestrate, 10 minute drive for the main beach and center of the town.
Villaggio Petruso it is a great place for a relaxing time, Family vacation and group of friends! The Villaggio it is locate up the hill of the small town of Balestrate and the view from here it is stunning! We enjoyed the stay very much and loved be in the pool are. Great rooms/ apartment with all the comfort, new ,clean and spacious. We stayed in the 2 Bedroom apartment that also had a small kitchenette well-equipped with all necessary utensils. The outdoor patio in our apartment was great for our relaxing time with the small lounge area and a BBQ grill as well. Wonderful staff, they are really great and very friendly. We had a great time at the Villaggio Petruso and especially enjoyed the amazing sunset!!! Meraviglioso!!!! The restaurant in the Villaggio offers the typical Sicilian dishes but with an excellent creation and unique taste, the chef was entertained us with his funny stories and explained each dishes create by him using the great quality of products as the fresh fishes and vegetable that Sicily offers. Overall the Village Petruso offer a great stay and it is close by the small town of Balestrate that offer great beach and entertainment at night.

We stayed here after a late arrival into Palermo airport. The staff were lovely and welcoming, even at 11pm. Would definitely stay here again for longer!

Nice views

Posted 13-Oct-2015
Pros: It is clean and well equiped.
Location: Good access to motorway.. Worth visiting old town Erice. Not far from Palermo.
It is a setting of individual self catering villas. Breakfast not included. They have a bar by the pool where you can purchase coffee, croisant and refreshments. Need a car to go to town or beach.

The hotel is too far from the Palermo city center.

Posted 07-Oct-2015
The facility is a nice resort or residence. The place was hard to find, not enough good signs. It should not be advertised as overnight facility for tourists. P.S., our shower faucet at Room 10 was not allowing hot water - minor detail to be fixed.

Will not choose this hotel again

Posted 23-Sep-2015 on Hotels
The way to the hotel is tricky and complicated. No sea view from the room as promised and we received a side room near reception. The room is clean, but NO hot water and bed is stiff as a rock. Pool looks good in the pictures but in fact is small and dirty. Not recommended

Spacious, comfortable apartment at a budget price

Posted 17-Sep-2015
Pros: Everything!
Location: Balestrate has 2 supermarkets, bars, restaurants & lovely beach. Ancient Greek sites (Segesta, Selinunte) & Phoenician island of Mozia are fascinating
We decided on Sicily for our honeymoon, and booked Villaggio Petruso because of its budget price and also on the basis of reviews here on Expedia as well as other sites. We were not disappointed! We had a one-bedroom apartment which was extremely spacious, clean and comfortable. The kitchen area had a microwave and four-ring gas hob as well as a full-sized fridge-freezer, and was adequately equipped with enough crockery, cutlery etc for two people. There was a bottle of wine, mineral water and soft drinks in the fridge on our arrival which was very welcome. The bathroom was very large, with a walk-in shower, and the bedroom was also big with plenty of wardrobe and storage space as well as air conditioning. We had our own covered terrace area with a table and four seats. The complex has a large and very pleasant pool area with loungers, seats and tables, and a licensed café which doubles as a restaurant in the evenings - prices are reasonable. The staff were uniformly excellent and couldn't have been more helpful in sorting out various problems, assisting with airport transfers, car hire etc. A car is essential here as the complex, although not far from the town of Balestrate, is remote and at the end of a steep, unlit, narrow lane which would make walking back from town uncomfortable (particularly at night). There is no shop on site although bakers and fruit/veg vans do call every morning.
