At first there weren't any issues regarding the room or so, me and my girlfriend just thought the breakfast was a little too basic, I dont know how the italians do it but a crossiant with nutella just doesnt make the job of filling my belly enough for a day of travelling through Sicily. We managed 5 nights without any... More

We stayed a week in this quiet, pleasant, and very hospitable residence. The staff are cheerful, friendly and very helpful. The amenities include a well maintained swimming pool, lovely scenery, and pleasant gardens. Breakfast is basic but adequate.Unfortunately the restaurant attached to the B&B is closed for the time being. However there are plenty of good restaurants within a few... More

We've just returned from 8 nights at the Cala dell'arena B&B. We decided not to rent a car so the hotel arranged a transfer for us from Palermo airport to the resort, which went smoothly despite us not speaking any Italian and the driver not speaking English! The B&B/Apartments are situated amongst beautiful grounds with views of the sea and... More

We stayed during the 3rd week in June, after spending our first week in the east of Sicily. Cala dell'Arena is set on a picturesque hill side in a quite location, less than a 10 minute drive away from San Vito De Capo beach. The long stony driveway into Cala dell'Arena’s court yard and the grounds it occupies are amazing.... More

An easy 70 minute drive from Palermo airport, follow the signs to Trapani and then to San Vito Lo Capo, it's the left turn before Macari. 3 supermarkets 10 minute drive away. The place is on the mountain side, 300 meters from the beach, with a perfect Sea view. Wifi in the entire place and friendly staff. You can get... More

We stayed for a week off season. Everything would have been perfect (pool, cleaniness, view, staff) if the furnishings had not been so sparse, especially when you stay with a family and actually do intend to use the kitchen equipment in particular. For the rest, highly recommendable.
