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

Thank you for 2 lovely nights in San Vito Lo Capo. San Vito is a lovely place for a stay in Sicily. A lovely beach, friendly people and great food. If you want to experience the real Sicily this is the place for you. The hotel is modern and well positioned and the friendliest stay you could ask for, they... More

My wife and I do not often leave reviews but our time with Vito and his wife Giovanna, Dina and the staff at Riva Del Sole was very special. The hotel is immaculate with great attention to detail. Vito was as warm and gracious (not to mention funny) as anyone possibly could be. Offering a glass of Prosecco every evening... More

We started our vacation in Sicily in San Vito lo Capo and had three amazing nights in the hotel Riva del Sole. The staff is extremely helpful and the breakfast delicious. We had different fresh fruits every morning and some homemade cannoli as well. The rooms are clean and quit. Hotel Riva des Sole is also only 50m way from... More

Renently remodeled- Very clean and beautiful hotel. Family owned and all staff members were very helpful and courteous. Rico was an excellent source of local information and always steered me in the right direction. Only complaint was the noise within the hotel. Not sure if if was the room I had in relation to the adjecent buildings but I could... More

This has to be one of the best places in San Vito. Just off the beach (2 minute walk) on a quieter side street and about 3 blocks to the main street of town. Vito and Dina were extremely helpful with dining tips and vito provided prosecco each evening. Breakfast was basic European, croissants, yougurt 7 granola, fruit and strong... More
