Very nice hotel, with beautiful scenery and comfortable apartments. However there are some drawbacks that influence overall rating: apartments lack basic stuff that you have to buy by yourself even if you are staying for a few days (toilet paper, dishwashing liquid, bottle of oil, sugar, salt). When we came we were told that wifi is not working since the... More

We stayed 4 persons in a 5 person apartment with two bedrooms on 2nd floor. Positive: ... The garden and atmosphere around the houses was fantastic - very beautiful and very quiet. Pool was great - good size, very clean and nearly at all times not too crowded. And with a nice view to the sea and mountains. Nice clean... More

Abbiamo alloggiato nel bilocale con cucina : tutto semplicemente perfetto! Lo staff è gentilissimo, la vista e la piscina bellisime,ed il mare pulitissimo. Un solo problema : l'acqua del mare di fronte (10 min a piedi o trenino) è freddina!!! Ma se andate alla spiaggia di S. Vito (3km) è un po' più calda. We stayed in the two rooms... More

Cala Dell'Arena is very well located with magic views & amazone sunset! The swimming pool is very nice and equipment Of the domain is good with a cafe machine near the swimming pool. The equipment in side the apartments is also correct but could be somewhat upgraded. Any wat, the place is magic !

Everything was perfect, but a lot of mosquitoes in the rooms. Need car for better comfort. Quiet place. Beach is 20 minutes walking. There are not trees on the beach so you need to rent an umbrella tohave a shadow.

Pretty decent place, good value, but don't go there without a car as any shop or restaurant are too far to walk. The Macari beach is close but also not too close to walk. Views are amazing, the bungalows are fine too, although their equipment sort of spoiled the impression ie. in a 3- people room exaclty 3 coffee cups,... More

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
