We truely enjoyed our stay at Araba Fenice. The rooms are clean, well maintained, A/C is working quietly. TV is tiny and Italian only, but that's not what you come for. Good thing is that you can shut the shades and sleep longer, as it will be really dark with the window shades closed. WiFi is working at the lobby... More

My mother and I recently had 7 nights here, and what a treat it was! The room was spotlessly clean, as was the bathroom, and the shower was wonderful. Fresh towels delivered daily, and the room was also cleaned every day. The breakfast was delicious, gorgeous fresh pastries, buns etc for breakfast, my waistline was not thankful, but it was...

The room we stayed in was very clean, tidy, with beautiful furnitures as well as very clean bathroom. Located in a perfect point, nearby the beach, and the center, made us so easy to move, to explore the zone. Talking about... More

The location was incredible, very near to the city centrum with restaurants, and very near to the beach. Also a very nice breakfast ang friendly staff. Maybe a little overpriced for a standard three-star-hotell off season (october).

I am amazed to read these positive reviews. In my opinion the hotel overcharges for the service offered (we have been charged €160/night (2 people): the room I stayed in was very tiny, there was no indication on breakfast time (we found out it commenced at 8:00 am) and/or check in & check out, no 24 hours front desk (nobody...

Dear guest, We would like to inform you that the 160 euro per night, is a very normal price during the very high season of the year, as on August, especially in the 3 stars hotel which has very short walking distance to the beach as ours and a room with balcony side- sea view. The room you stayed, was... More

Literally 3 minutes from the beach, this small family owned bed and breakfast was fantastic. The couple that own and run the B&B were incredibly friendly and accomodating and the room was clean and quiet. The breakfast was wonderful with a selection of fruit and wonderful Sicilian pastries and a nice small garden sitting area. I had no complaints and... More

Stayed here with my friends for 3 nights, and the hotel was superb! Our hosts, Heny and Alessandro, are really really warm and accomodating. The beach was rather chilly when we arrived in early May, but that didn't stop us from having a lot of fun when we were in San Vito, and its mostly because of Heny and Alessandro.... More
