I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. Great location (short walk to the beach), outstanding staff (everyone was so friendly and helpful) and immaculate rooms and public areas. It was a very comfortable place to stay. We didn't realize it when we booked, but our booking included two beach lounges and an umbrella which was a nice surprise.... More

The only mistake we made on our one week trip to Sicily was staying in San Vito Lo Capo for only two days. We should have stayed here a few more days. It's hard to describe the incredible beauty of the beach and the mountains in San Vito. And this was an excellent hotel for a couple of relaxing days... More

Very clean and nice hotel just near the beach in San Vito lo Capo. We were surprised by amassing hospitality of owners who runs this hotel, extremely warm people. Absolutely recommend this hotel for everybody!

We had a great time staying here. The owner Vito,Dina and all staff we saw did everything they could to make our stay perfect offering us everything we might need before we asked. San vito is a perfect stop for a few days to relax on the beach. Restaurants are amazing and the hotel is located perfectly for enjoying. Thank... More

This small hotel generated incredible warmth! The owner could not do enough for us. No need for an elevator since he carried our bags to the rooms that were tastefully decorated and quite comfortable & clean. The breakfasts were incredible and he and Dina went out of their way to prepare everything to satisfy us. This was the first of... More

The hotel is located few meters both from the beach and the center of town. The structure is nice, recently renovated and very clean. The service is excellent and the owner friendly and very helpful. Highly recommended!

I stayed at Riva Del Sole with my parents in late September during the Couscous Festival. The rooms are comfortable, carefully appointed and spot clean. The location is wonderful, 5 minutes walk to your assigned area on the beach. Breakfast is also excellent. I couldn't stop eating the Pane Cunzato; freshly made every day and dressed with family made olive... More

Our travels to Italy were filled with nice surprises; but the 4 nights spent at the Riva del Sole were the best! From the minute we entered this charming hotel, our expectations were met and then some. After a warm reception and cold drinks with the owner, we went to our lovely room on the first floor. So glad we... More

We were in western Sicily for 2 weeks and stayed in several places. San Vito itself much busier and resort like than we expected but the small hotel a gem. The staff really friendly and helpful - offered water or juice on arrival good detailed info about parking which is a nightmare . We asked for a quiet room and... More

My partner and I visited Sicily for two weeks this past June, 2014.. and we truly believe this hotel and the reception we received was the highlight of our stay. Vito, the owner, (yes, same name as San Vito) could not have been more gracious and accommodating to us. The room, although simple was very comfortable, clean and, most importantly... More
