We recently stayed for 8 nights in this wonderful hotel. It was our 2nd visit to this beautiful spot and this really helped us relax and unwind from the moment we were welcomed by Paola on arrival. We can highly recommend Acquamarina Hotel for many reasons. Our bedroom was a good size with very soothing decor, a very comfortable bed... More

We've just spent five days here, and I have to say, the hotel could not have been better. We had a lovely spacious room with a balcony looking out to the sea and across the bay to the village. Great breakfast up on the third floor terrace, like being on the bridge of an ocean liner when the wind was... More

The Hotel is very clean, has a large free car park,and well organised, staff are extremely helpful.

Stayed a week from 15 May. The hotel Acquamarina is located in Donnalucata, a small fishing town not far from the airports of Comiso (33 km) and Catania (140 km). Excellent base to explore several neighbouring UNESCO World Heritage towns with magnificent baroque architecture, such as Scicli, Modica, Ragusa, and, a bit further, Noto and Siracusa. Few restaurants including the... More

Modern, new and on the water. Friendly staff. Good breakfast served on upper level deck with ocean view. There is no beach to walk, all rocks. One restaurant next to hotel. Not close to any shops, etc. free parking. Some rooms have a balcony, ours did not. Room was large with nice bath.

Lovely bright airy and fresh hotel situated directly on the coastline a short walk into Donnalucatta. Great beach. Try to book a balcony room to enjoy the views.

Amazing value, amazing views, amazing room, amazing breakfast on an amazing terrace! South Sicily and the wifi worked better than Palermo's best hotels! Such charm and unbelievable value for money. The hotel sits on an unspoilt beach next to the charming town. To visit Ragusa and the rest of southern Sicily this is the place to stay. Highly recommended! Tip:... More
