I stayed in the Villa Igiea for one night in Palermo and was amazed by the building and the premises outside towards the sea. By choosing this hotel you can really make a difference. The rich history can be felt everywhere in the hotel and the staff is very supportive on every matter you might bring up. Don't miss to... More

At one time this must have been a hotel visited by only the rich and famous. The hotel grounds and view from the ocean view rooms are stunning. But if you can't get an ocean view room I wouldn't stay here. It has the elegant stateliness only hotels of style built in the early 1900s have, The public rooms, the... More

I had high hopes for Palermo and for our hotel, but on this occasion I was left a little disappointed. The hotel itself looks very grand and charming but is a little 'tired' in places and both rooms we were shown were not quite up to the standard we were expecting. The first room offered was quite large but it... More

We took the opportunity of an early evening trip to the attractive seaside suburb of Arenella to visit this grand hotel. We could see it from Aranella and it’s a pleasant walk of about a km. We arrived to find a large crowd with camera-phones gathered at the closed gates and a heavy security police presence. We enquired what celebrity... More

Visited with my mother for her birthday only stayed one night. Breakfast was out of this world, interior very old style and maybe could be a little more up to date but overall grand spaces and rooms.

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!). The views are stunning and the beautifully maintained gardens had a wealth of interesting plants. The service was excellent. The concierge staff were extremely helpful in... More

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
