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.

Dear Sir, Madam, we thank you for writing about your experience at Hotel Acquamarina, giving a positive opinion. We only regret not having given to you any information about our sandy beach. In fact it stretches for 4 uninterrupted kilometers beyond the fish market and it is very appreciated by the walkers. This would be a good reason to return... More

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. Small breakfast room opens out to a beautiful terrace overlooking the Med. Great way to start your day. Spacious rooms, good beds and reliable WiFi. We were there out of season so... More

Dear Sir, we thank you for your review, perfect according to us! Your words reflect all what a guest can find at Hotel Acquamarina and even more, like seeing the iridescent blue of the Mediterranean Sea, getting lost the infinite blue of the sky or sinking the toes in the golden sand as the blazing sun sets in the sea....

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

We have just returned from a trip to Sicily and stayed here for two nights. The hotel is just outside ( walking distance along the beach) from the small fishing village of Donnallucata. It is a modern hotel, the decorations are sympathetic to the sea landscape. The bedroom was spotlessly clean,bright, and bathroom equipped with an excellent shower. While the... More
