My husband and I stayed for 4 nights in October 2012 and what a wonderful time we experienced. We were recommended by our friends who had spent three weeks travelling around Sicily and they thought this was one the best hotels for value for money and room size. They were not wrong. The hotel was on the main road towards... More

If you want a comfortable hotel without breaking the bank, this is the one for you. However if you want a lively hotel in a bustling town, then it isn't! Still, you can enjoy some delicious Sicilian cuisine and then go straight to bed - there's nothing else to do. Castelluzzo is a tiny village, with one or two old... More

We stayed at al ritrovo for two nights, pre-booked due to the tripadvisor ranking. Rooms: rooms are ok, clean and beds confortable. Furthermore no noise. Service: the owner is a nice guy always happy to answer questions (although he doesn't say much if not needed). Breakfast is a little bit disappointing as its mostly sweet stuff and not much fresh...

We stayed here for four nights at the beginning of May and would recommend this to anyone planning a vacation the San Vito lo Capo area. Even in the off season when the weather was so-so, the location was gorgeous and couldn't be beat -- only a ten minute drive from San Vito, which was really the perfect distance away... More

We stayed at this hotel a week during the Eastern and we had a very nice time here. The owner, Pepe, is really working hard to make the guests feeling pleased. It´s a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. And Pepe is an excellent chef in the kitchen making dishes we not forget at the first time...The three courses menu and desserts... More

This hotel is very nice: the rooms are modern, the staff is very friendly and the kitchen is the best we had all over sicily. It is a cozy hotel, combining also restaurant and bar where the locals get their espresso each morning. We ate nice fish and Pepe prepared us a local speciality in the morning. Will definitely return... More

i was there for a week last september. I decided after having read the recommendations of other people. I must admit that the food prepared by chef ( better CHEF with capital letters), mainly fish, was of excellent quality. The service is extremely good and they give you many tips. Do not miss the opportunity to visit Al Ritrovo!

Modern comfortable rooms, very relaxed atmosphere and quiet. The locals stop by in the morning to have a cup of coffee. Owner/cook Pepe prepares great food and serves a very decent wine in a nice atmosphere, that makes you feel right at home. Warmly recommended!
