Stayed here in late November 2015. A bit difficult to see the sign as it is on a brass plaque on the wall. Just look for the chicken restaurant, the B&B is a few doors in advance. We turned down a side street and found a place to park. By the time we got the bags out the owner had... More

I highly recommend Casa Ruffino. Paula and Giuseppe are great hosts very welcoming and accomodating. Rooms are cleaned daily and I found perfect for my needs. Breakfast is delicious here with choice ranging from ricotta and local cheeses, prosciutto and scrambled egg, bread with locally produced jams and marmalades to fruits such as fresh figs and melon with mint to...

It feels more like you're a guest at a good friend of yours. Wonderful service by the owner who is very proud of his and his wifes place. Wonderful breakfast with locally produced food. Luxurious in every aspect.

Good location, nice and clean room, the best breakfast (only local products). Stayed there just for one night before taking the flight from Palermo. Balestrate has a very beautiful beach, so you can relax or you can go explore Palermo, San vito lo Capo, Erice, Marsala, ...

We received a very warm welcome to a B and B which has its own special character. The rooms were distinctive and clean. We were treated as friends of the owners and taken to the festival on that evening. The breakfast was good and we were given cheese made that morning in the local area.

This was the best breakfast i ever had! cornetti with pistacchio - filling, mozzarella, prosciutto di parma...incredibly well prepared and served with kindness and knowledge. unfortunately we only stayed for one night before our flight back home. It's definitely worth staying for longer, though. Probably a good place for people who are learning italian because the host, Giuseppe, has a... More

Although the rooms are nice and very clean, they are very noisy especially during a saturday night...it's as if the motorcycles and cars pas through the room. Very authentic and very Italian but no sleeping I'm afraid. The hosts are very friendly but speak almost no English. Their son was a big help. Balestrate is close to the airport and... More

We vacationed in Sicily this summer and wanted a place near the airport but also close to Castellamare del Golfo and more. Our son was departing the next day and we were staying on to sight see this area of Sicily. Giuseppe and Paola are very gracious hosts! Despite the language barrier we managed to communicate quite well using google... More

We had an early morning flight out of Palermo and were looking for somewhere close to the airport. This was a great choice! Guiseppe and Paola were wonderfully gracious and friendly - even arranging a ride to the airport in the morning. While they don't speak much English, their hospitality comes through easily. Guieseppe got up to prepare us some... More

WOW! What a terrific time we had here. The high praise for this B&B could not be more well deserved. We had 4 nights here and each evening, and complimentary breakfast each morning, was better than the last. Giuseppe and Paola do not speak much english, but are WONDERFULLY friendly, accommodating, patient, and hospitable; learn some Italian before you travel... More
