We spent 3 nights in Palermo province. Balestrate is 30 minutes west of Palermo. The hotel is beautifully located by the sea, the service is excellent. Breakfast is serviced in a balcony by the sea. 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

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
