This is our 3rd visit to this hotel and the town of Balestrate, as always the hotel staff are friendly, the local bars and nice and the beach is only a short walk away! If you are expecting something trendy then don't go to this town, it's all about people, family and a warm welcome! We ate in the seafood... More

I booked for my sister and her friend a wellness-day at Marina holiday. They told me that it was fantastic experience: they had the opportunity to relax, to stay together in tranquillity in an amazing location. I saw some pictures they tooK: wonderful place and stunning landscape from the green terrace with jacuzzi. The dinner was little small but nice.... More

Nice room, good breakfast, easy to park the car nearby, personnel super kind, really difficult to find a hotel like this is Sicily. Nice view from the bar. The swimming pool is not large but it just helps improve the view.

The hotel has a great location next to a vibrant bar and the main high street. Beautiful views but the marina is very basic and shouldn't be considered an attraction. Breakfast is being served on the open terrace overlooking the sea. The best it can offer is excellent Italian coffee and a smile from its staff. Breakfast selection is very... More

We wanted a sea view and got it - albeit obliquely at this over-priced marina hotel. We should have been warned by the ridiculous over-sized cod baroque furniture and the plastic flowers but nothing prepared us for the lack of sound-proofing. We finally got to sleep at 2.13am when staff eventually stopped scraping chairs and talking to each other at... More

The rooms are well equipped. We ate dinner in local restaurants with the local Sicilians and it was very good. The go from this city... More

My girlfriend and I spent a week here and really enjoyed our stay. We were warmly welcomed from the moment we stepped in and the staff were always more than happy to help. Our room was large, clean and well decorated - with a huge, comfortable bed. The restaurant was a little pricey for us, but there are plenty of... More
