Being on the gulf was very pretty, and being able to walk over to restaurants for dinner was great. The only thing we were unhappy with was that the music at the club/restaurant along the gulf is exremely loud and continues to the wee hours of the morning, which made it difficult to sleep.
The location next to the marina had a very romantic atmosphere, especially at night with the lights shining on the water. The front desk were all friendly and helpful when it came to trying to find a good restaurant. The breakfast was more than we expected for continental.
Very friendly staff, exceptionally clean and room cleaned and tidied every day. Great location.
very friendly staff and best breakfasts we had in sicily room a little small and dark plus quite a bit of noise at night
Excellent location, close to the sea (no real beach, however) and to restaurants, yet fairly quiet. Good breakfast. Good selection of TV programs
We rented a room with balkony and seaview. From there we could enjoy watching the sea and the quiet life in the harbour this chilly november day.
I was ill and they called a doctor for me who came to my room. The staff was friendly and helpful and we enjoyed our stay despite my medical problem!Very good breakfasts and a beautiful location.
Well situated for visiting nearby historic sites
Excellent position in a pretty harbour side site, with an abundance of nearby retaurants. Friendly English speaking staff. Good breakfast. Value for money. Barking dogs in the night.
Some sort of insulation needs to be applied to dividing walls. The gentleman next door kept us awake snoring
location near the beach+ the view at the sea the hotel staff at the breakfast
All above, pleasant staff, excellent location. Our flight was cancelled on the out outward journey to Sicily on 9th July 2008. I contacted the hotel and advised them that we would not be able to stay on 10th July as previously arranged. The person on reception was courteous and sympathetic so much so that I had no hesitation in re-booking as soon as another flight could be arranged. Lovely extras!
Mostly everything...position, professional and friendly staff. Real 4 star hotel. American coffee served during breakfast, absolutely not tasty (but good to wake up...). Better to ask espresso to staff.
Lovely hotel in brilliant location and very god service from staff. Lovely clean rooms with great views onto harbor. Really very nice place and recommended Nothing
Fresh and modern, well designed rooms, good outlook
It was really nice: nice location, nice rooms and good breakfast!
I loved the setting. There was always something to see outside on the esplanade. The hotel had areas in layers to sit and relax, on grass sheltered by palm trees and on a forecourt where drinks or breakfast could be had. The staff were polite and friendly and extremely helpful. The rooms could have been slightly bigger but was elegantly furnished and comfortable.
very romantic view of the beautiful bay from our window and nice contemporary decor
Room with balcony over looking the marina
Excellent staff and terrific cleanliness.
Very nice place with friendly and helpful staff, the female afternoon receptionist was particularly helpful (and attractive!)We would definitely stay again.Adjoining resturant was also very good value with great food. Shower and aircon weren't the best
Staff was terrific and knowledgable.
This is the second time we have stayed here. The main building was recently renovated, the rooms are beautiful and spotlessly clean. This is one of our favorite places to stay in Sicily, close to the nature preserve. It is run by a lovely family who make us feel welcome and comfortable.
Very nice, hospitable staff. Nice very small village with a few restaurants and bar.Quite room, parking nearby. Good breakfast and good restaurant.
The situation The tables for the breakfast were not cleaned after usage by former users.
We were made very welcome on arrival, the room was really comfortable, the food was good especialy the evenhing meals and the owner and his wife were always available to give information and advise. nothing
The location was lovely and relaxed
Breakfast was very good
The management was very nice. It seems like they like what they do and then I like it. Nice placement as well in the little cosy city of Scopello. The breakfast wasn't memorable...
The sea-view and coastal panorama unbeatable. Attractive room with balcony and good standard facilities. Terrace restaurant with good, unpretentious food and wine at modest prices.
modern stylish building with clean rooms. frigobar and safe deposit box in room with integral aircon. just one issue, which was dealt with fairly and promptly. my particular room was close to reception which meant that there may have been quieter parts of the hotel in which to stay.
Room new and very good cleaning Breakfast quality.
Good breakfast, Good AC. Good value for money.
clean pool- but a bit cold- water throughput too quick did not have time to warm up - sea nice and warm no pads for the sun loungers so a bit hard - road noise -
All hotel staff were very friendly, helpful and professional. Special mention to the receptionists, who had all information to hand and spoke good English. Buffet breakfast was also good. Room (we had a suite) was very spacious, though not luxurious. The room's terrace with seaview was wonderful. Nothing major. The short walk into the centre is a bit depressing: the town council need to repair the narrow pavements, cut back the foliage etc. Obviously not the hotel's fault, but in the dark this could be a problem for elderly/disabled clients.
Great breakfast. Hotel easy to find and well signposted. Great location overlooking the sea. Within walking distance of the old town and harbor.
Friendly English speaking staff. Large room and balcony in the Junior suite. Great sea view from the balcony. Hotel (balcony & pool) in shadow after lunch (stayed there in Oct). No walking pavements to get to the beach nore the restaurant district in town.
Opening the door and window to the balcony and seeing and hearing the water in the little alcove
Very nice views. We had a seaview. Noise of cars passing by but not at night.
The availability of visiting sea immediately from hotel just going downstairs from hotel inner courtyard. the swimming pool and the breakfast in the patio the good point is also location just in front of the sea the time of taking swimming pool was limited and as a matter of fact the guests have to choose between outdoor activities and swimming in the pool. It might be better to have more opportunities to swim either in the morning or in theevening.
The location (ocean front) and the quality of service from the hotel staff. Excellent. No.
this was a hotel in a good location with very helpful staff
The hotel staff were friendly & helpful. The resort is quiet but beautiful with plenty of choices for excellent eating places within walking distance. The hotel was very clean & the rooms were large & comfortable. The breakfast was excellent. We used public transport (bus & train) which was fairly reliable & reasonably priced. A hire car would be useful if you want to sightsee further afield. No it was all excellent.
The room was comfortable and very clean. The air conditioner was great! NO
room equipped with aircon and frigobar. central location, including annexe at which i stayed. double bed frame was topped with 2 single mattresses which clearly didn't enjoy each others company.
Incredibly friendly staff, who were very helpful throughout our stay. The location of the hotel was ideal in the town, as it was only a short walk away from the Port and various restaraunts. A delightful stay was had and we would thouroughly recommend the hotel to other visitors.
Family of 5 stayed in their apartment up the street. Room sizes were very spacious. Breakfast was served on top floor & featured outside eating terrace. Lots of available free parking in vicinity. Hotel had lots of info on surrounding attractions, beaches etc. Mountain top town of Erice had great views of the coast.
It was noisy in the morning, when people were going for a breakfast, practically impossible to sleep anymore.
A pretty good place for the money, great breakfast, nice, helpful staff. Liked it. No complaints
The staff were very helpful and friendly, and the hotel was spacious, clean all round good. There was nothing I did not like about the hotel. Fantastic
the room was huge and the breakfast was very good
really nice place, very friendly and helpful staff
Comfortable, cosy. Good people very kind. The lack of a wifi is a big problem these days.
It is easy to walk to restaurants from hotel. Rooms are clean and big. Many have nice view. The breakfast was terrible. There was nothing really special about this hotel - it is just okay.
The hotel was noisy, we can hear everything from what is happening in the room upstairs...
Nice hotel, kind and helpful stuff, clean and very quiet. Beautiful pier nearby and close to the city center and fish restorans It is very desirable to include in breakfast menu some fruits and/or vegetables at least. Also there shoud be more cupboards to put off our stuff from suitcases.
The staff were nice, the room was clean and spacious. The hotel is located some 20 meters from the town's (touristic) harbour. Although having been promised a room with a view over the harbour, I got a room facing another building. Upon my request, I was given the opportunity to change into my desired room after one night, but at an extra charge of over 10%. The staff could (should) have been more flexible here.
excellent value no
Nice and clean hotel with good airconditioner which does not turn off after you have left the room
Staff were excellent. Very helpful. Lots of available car parking.
The hotel was quiet at night and the staff were very helpful
Friendly staff, rooms very clean and comfortable. Hotel over looking the sea and mountains in the centre on town
Good hotel, built and equipped to great standards in a great location. Nothing really wrong with this hotel but it felt a little cold with no atmosphere and relaxed ambience. Limited language skills of staff and willingness to go out of their way. If you just want somewhere to sleep this is more than good but don't expect much conversation with anybody. Also a hotel of this standard should provide a better variety of buffet breakfast for guest staying a week or long.
The brakfast was fine, the hotel and the rooms very clean. Hi-speed internet worked all the time, and it's free of charge. The hotel has their own taxi driver. Accept all major credit cards.
Simple, but nice and clean hotel. Very friendly, helpful staff. Excellent location near the village's main restaurants and close to some beautiful archeological sites, other lovely villages, beach and a nature reserve (and just 40 minutes from the airport). Local youth testing their scooters on the (lovely) square right in front of our room in the late afternoon / early evening (but luckily they went home at a reasonable hour and in the mornings the view over the square and the bay made up for it).
Very friendly and most helpful staff. Excellent lunch and dinner but breakfast was a bit disappointing. Bed was a bit hard.
The hotel staff was very professional, friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet had a nice selection of food: cereal, fruit, pastries, yogurt, bread, meat, cheeses and you could prepare eggs if you wanted them. We would definitely stay there again.
Excellent location to tour north west of the island. Comfortable room, good breakfast choices and friendly staff. Hotel easy to find. Depending on time of arrival, parking can be difficult to find.
Good locations. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was standard fare, Dinner in the resturant was excellent.
Location Very noisey outside the hotel
Staff was helpfull giving directions and the food was good
Good facilities in rooms. Excellent Free Wi-Fi. Reasonable breakfast included. Well situated Breakfast could have been more varied.
The location is central but you have to take care with GPS instructions on driving there.Breakfast wk.was ok We paid the extra for the sea view room and we could see the sea. The room looked out on a square which was extremely noisy all Saturday evening and early Sunday morning. The noise was disruptive and was not blocked out by the windows. When we mentioned this to the staff they were not even slightly sympathetic.
Location excellent, room huge and stylish, staff helpful, hotel not too big or impersonal Tiny cheap shower spoilt stylish room/bathroom
Nice hotel...lovely big rooms. Good air conditioning. Nice staff. Nothing.
Very helpful informative staff, location, spacious rooms Parking was a problem but this may be solved when the forecourt has been completed
Bedroom was one of the best I have stayed in .Breakfast on roof terrace was very enjoyable. All in all a very enjoyable experiance. Hotel bar left a lot to be desired . Did not have a large selection to choose from .
the suite was very comfortable and fulfilled on all points our requirements. The view when you have breakfast in the morning on the sea is very relaxing.
Nice location, staff really kind and helpful. Parking site in front of the hotel is just for few cars but it is very easy to find a spot in the nearby Perhaps during the evening and in the night the square in front of the main entrance is too crowded, there are a lot of teenagers with motorbikes. Nevertheless we haven't had any problem to sleep
Staff was very nice and helpful The trafic in the near road is a little too noisy
It was very central and close to everything with lovely views. The rooftop breakfast terrace was special.
Excelent conditions and overall upkeep.
The staff at Al Ritrovo were so lovely - sweet, attentive and extremely friendly - they were not the best English speakers (and we even worse Italian speakers) but this in no way hindered their effrots to make us feel totally welcome. Our room was and the hotel in general was spotless. Not ideally placed for the beach - a car is a must.
a fantastic little place to stay - the igloo shaped bungalows are so cleverly designed and the owners have thought of everything to make it a comfortable place to stay. the garden setting is beautiful - perfect. no air conditioner - but the owners gave us a fan which worked fine
A wonderful place, we arrived very late and were still met with a smile. The rooms are very comfortable and the place immaculate. A lovely place to stay, easy to get to the local attractions and great for children. It's basic, but fun. It was all good, couldn't fault it.
Spacious apartment with comfortable kitchen for cooking. Charming setting with igloos. Perfect for children to run around and be safe. No air-conditioning (only in upper units-2), problematic due to heat and many mosquitoes in this setting. Needed to light gas stove with match (unsafe). Bathroom quite small relative to size of apartment (sleeps 7). Washing machine is common for owners (for guest towels and sheets) and guests - need to wait your turn. Facilities not in line with price.
Excellent staff. Great location.
Quiet place with lovely garden and amazing views.Rooms are clean and functional.Beach only down the road with family run restaurant, very good value for delicious meals.Owners Manuela and her husband could not be more helpful!! Beautiful place would return anytime:)
In a room is not present TV channels in Russian.
ideal location near the sea.. great rooms in little igloos.. clean and tidy . recommended.. nothing.. book it
Very nice, relaxing area, feels like something in between hotel and camping. Very original and italian. Funny igloo houses. Lots of trees (palms and olive). Great beaches in the area. Beautifull nature. Only small issues: Could use playground for children and easy/safe walkway to beach. Missed air condition, but had a fan.
Very pleasant budget self catering, perfect for our needs as a base to explore Sicily, somewhere nice to return to and sit out of an evening too. while only a short drive from castellmare del goflo, you will need a car to get around if staying here, otherwise it would be very difficult to get around. the place is ideal for families, but can get a little noisy at times with children running around, so bear in mind if you're looking for peace and tranquility.
Well the shape of bungalows was unexpected in positive side. Everything was clean and comforted. It was great experience for our children sleeping in an igloo.
Clean rooms, nice personnel Hotel is situated quite far from the see. In the hotel description it is said that you can get to the see by a "short walk". In fact is rather a hiking trip which takes around 15 min down to the see and even more back to the hotel and requires good physical condition. Such information is missleading in the hotel description.
Really helpful and pleasant staff, excellent location, all new and lovely finish to the hotel. Great place to stay
the cleanliness, confort, and the views. We wre only there for two days i would have prefered if the pool was ready
Fantastic location minutes away from Riserva dello Zingaro and Tonnara di Scopello, modern infrastructures, good breakfast None really. If one really wanted to point to something I would say rooms are a little small.
Good room, clean. people friendly, but sometimes unclear in explaining where things are (or how to reach the hotel) some issues with TV and lights, standard breakfast (be reminded to ask them to make you the coffee! the one of the machine is aweful)
