The resort is located in a very quiet place excellent for relaxation. The staff are warm particularly Giovanni was very helpful and always smiling. The room was spacious with 4 poster bed. The balcony was not facing the sea but we had sea view towards the right side. Spa was also very nice. The in house restaurant Da Cla was... More

We stayed here for 5 days in August. An absolutely beautiful hotel with lovely decor. The rooms exceeded my expectations by far, even though we didn't have a sea view I was very happy. Very clean and tidy too. The staff could not be more helpful and accommodating. Very nice town with many restaurants near by, but by far the... More

We stayed at the Marina Holiday Resort & Spa in July, the facilities were amazing and all the staff helped us in any way they could. The hotel is beautiful and one of its most unique features is the lift down to the beach. The town is charming and well situated to get to both Palermo for some culture and... More

Balestrate in general, and the Marina Holiday Resort & Spa specifically are excellent if your goal is to enjoy the Mediterranean scenery and spend some time on the beach. There are multiple restaurants in very close proximity, including the one at the hotel, and the views from the hotel are spectacular. The service from the front desk staff was excellent... More

Stayed here for 5 days over my 30th birthday and an anniversary with my girlfriend - have to say it's one of the best hotels I've stayed at. Excellent value, great rooms and service. The restaurant is a massive bonus - will definitely return.

We booked this hotel because it is close to the airport. We hoped to get a good night's sleep before our very early morning departure. While the hotels colors were spa-like and soothing, all was lost when the Why Not bar across the way kicked into high gear with loud booming live music. We laid in bed with the walls... More

Lovely room, beautiful views from restaurant, magnificent breakfast with croissant as good as France. The best cappuccino. Still cool enough not to need AC but wanted quiet so used it and it worked great . Rooms have small balcony with very tall opening doors. Balcony is really only for aesthetics but makes for pretty architectural lines. All was way beyond... More

Just spent one night here after touring Sicily but wish we could have stayed longer. The welcome at reception was very good and the service from the staff at the hotel was excellent; they even helped me to pay for the parking ticket that I had picked up in Siracusa. The rooms are large and well kitted out. As it... More

Great hotel with an excellent off-season rate. It overlooks the sea and has beautiful views. We were fortunate to have great weather, so we could take advantage of the pool and the nearby beach. The staff was very friendly and there is an excellent spa facility on site. The included breakfast was very good. Neighborhood is very quaint with lots... More

This is a beautiful hotel located directly on a small beach and marina. What they forgot to mention was that this four star resort (i use that word with remorse) had no working elevator, no restaurant and no seats outside to enjoy the view. all the services had just stopped the day before, but I doubt it. The sun chairs... More
