What a shame that this lovely property has fallen into such a bad state of repair. Five star hotel??--no where near. In current condition would barely make a three star. Bathroom had mildew. Halls had water damage. Entry needed clean carpet--if not new. The public rooms are in dire need of major repairs--crumbling concrete, etc. The one shining star was... More

Well our stay my husband and I in grand hotel villa igea added charm and romanticism to our 25th. Anniversary trip. The rustic ambiance of the place combined to its excellent service transported us to ancient Sicily times. Excellent breakfast on the terrace with a superb view on the sea.

We stayed here for 5 nights in October. The hotel was simply perfect - our room, bathroom and enormous terrace could not be faulted ( sounds like a different hotel to some other reviews!).

Great experience from check-in to check-out! Valet staff that were prompt to attend and assist with luggage, followed by a quick check in and tour of the hotel. Facility itself was grand and on the water overlooking a sail club. Close proximity to all amenities. (having a car was key as it allowed us to get around quickly). Breakfast was... More

We wanted to stay outside of the hectic city of Palermo--this looked like a good option. The problem is that they advertise as a 5 star hotel and, at best, would be a 3 star. The bones of this hotel are almost heartbreakingly beautiful, and photos of its glory days make you feel it even more acutely. The rooms have... More
