My friend and I stayed here for one week. It was excellent. Room was spotless, cleaned daily, fresh towels and bedding. Service was excellent. Lovely people, friendly and helpful. Hotel was a couple of hundred metres from the beach and the main shopping area. Only downside Wifi not so good very hit and miss. We would definitely stay here again.

Close to the beach, clean and freindly staff. Our room wassmall but sufficient and the bathroom and shower were spotless and big enough. Breakfast was small but typically Sicilian - fresh figs cherries plus the usual cold cuts and "cornettos" with various fillings. And excellent espressi! We would happily return.

Myself and my mother have just come back from our second stay here, the first being 2 years ago. I can happily say that things still are as brilliant as our first time here and we had a great week. As ever Allessandro and Heny are super hosts, so kind, helpful and courteous. We can't wait for our next visit... More

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...

Stayed with some friends in this hotel, we had great days. The staffs were so friendly and always avaliable. 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
