The rooms are horribly decorated and the shower full of mould. The place might pass as a 1 start location in Summer for desperate tourists, but it should not be let in Winter as the rooms are cold with no proper bedding and no carpets. Furthermore the place is in the middle of nowhere and unless you have a car... More

We spent two nights at this hotel in Ispica which is well situated for venturing out for days at the beach and for evenings in the towns of Modica and Scicli (do not miss this). Our rooms were located in an old 17th century villa that sits on a hilltop separate from the main hotel structure which is called Torre... More

We decided to return to the Hotel for a weekend visit from Malta with another couple. The effusive Massimo has now moved on, his replacement and previous assistant Sara had broken her foot and therefore the Willowy Stefania was holding the fort, valiantly, despite her lack of experience. We had told our friends not to expect full tourist hotel facilities... More

The Hotel Villa Principe di Belmonte is faded and well past it's best. We booked based on reviews, and we were looking forward to our holiday. We arrived at midday, and had a week booked, we should have turned around and left immediately when we saw the peeling paint, damp walls, dirt, unkempt gardens and general air of squalor, but...

Weekend break with friends who had stayed here a year before. Apparently in the 12 months elapsed its lost a bit of color and the wow factor. Still rooms were well appointed, spotlessly clean, cobbled floors are a unique feature but a worry with the small step that had to be navigated to get to the bathroom especially at night.... More

We stayed at the Villa Principe di Belmonte for a week with Esplora Travel on their 'Montalbano' Tour. The hotel staff were all very friendly and helpful and we would like to thank Sara and Stephania in reception for looking after us so well and organising lifts into the nearby town of Ispica. Also a big thank you to the... More

This charming hotel received us in a wonderfully friendly manner. The house is charming, the location on top of the hill with a view over south eastern part of Sicily is superbe, the rooms elegant and the coffee is great. Apart from the very nice staff, one of the things I really appreciated was unlimited access to tea and coffee... More

Thank you Massimo and Sarah for such a warm welcome. Our room was spotless and I loved the cobblestone floor. The breakfast of fresh pastries and local cheese was better than the 5 star hotel we stayed in the next night. I wish we could have stayed longer.This is definitely a special place with superb service.

You arrive at Villa Principe di Belmonte as guests but leave as friends. Massimo (the Manager)is the perfect host who goes out of his way to make you welcome and make your holiday a wonderful experience. Rooms are big and spotlessly clean and the breakfast is perfect. Lots of freshly baked delicious pastries, besides the delicious bread, ricotta, cheeses, hams,... More
