There are VERY few hotels to choose from in this area, and that being the case, the Hotel Mokarta is certainly suitable. The family that runs it is charming; the breakfasts are tasty (perfect cappuccinos, hot chocolate croissants, array of yogurts + fruits, etc.); the pool is pretty, though often incredibly crowded since it is also open to the public;...

Hotel Villa Mokarta is located at the top of a hill in Salemi, Sicily/Italy, not far from Palermo airport and/or Mazza Del Vallo - the sea. It is a very modern hotel, only five years old with a pool, restaurant, very small bar and inviting lobby. My chief concern was that no screens were used on the windows (not uncommon... More

This hotel is quirky, with lots of local culture and arts on display. The food was good. The decor didn't blow me away, with rooms being slightly cramped and a little old-fashioned. Everything worked however, so we were comfortable. Internet was free. Salemi is a good location to explore western Sicily, however, the hotels is a little farther than you... More

Lovely hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. But found the town didn't have much to see and to go out and eat. We must have been the only foreigners there and it felt intimidating. The restaurant wasn't open in the hotel due to lack of people staying.

Villa Mokarta is well signposted in the town. It has its own car park. Rooms are of good size and well set up. Management and reception were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet is good but on one morning was spoilt by a group of hotel guests who descended on the buffet and demolished just about everything like locusts. The... More

The hotel is located in a quiet area with nice mountain views. To get to the main square of Salemi from the hotel, I would recommend driving as it would take around 15 - 20 minutes to walk up and downhill. During our stay at the hotel, there are parties going on within the hotel till late in the night.... More

Great hotel. I organised a business seminar in the hotel mokarta for clients interested in the 1 Euro properties in Salemi. All my clients were happy. The conference room downstairs with projector and buffet, followed by a meal in the restaurant, proved succesful. They amazingly also had wireless internet. Highly recomeended for those visiting Salemi. It is a little difficult... More

Outstanding hotel with one of the nicest owners we've ever come across. Sal helped us finding our family roots and spent countless hors helping and translating. Beautiful new hotel in a gorgeous hill town close to Segusta. Can't wait to go back!

We spent 2 nights at this new hotel (opened Summer 2007). The room and the bathroom were beautiful; there was a small balcony with a view over the west central Sicilian countryside that was breathtaking! Very good breakfast and dinner served in their restaurant. This was our second visit to Salemi; it is a lovely small town with easy access... More
