Large room with terrace facing the sea. Terrace furniture needs replacing....cane seating totally given way. Easy walk into town from here. Supermarket nearby for water. Afternoon tea with cake was scrumptious! Food was the best we had on our tour.

A handsome hotel in a great situation, especially if sea front view available. Sadly, while previous visitors had complaints about the a/c, it seemed that the heating was turned off in November. Very uncomfortable, and as the weather was less than clement the only place to keep warm was in the dining room. The bar night club was close to... More

So, the best thing about the Mahara is Chiara, the very capable desk person (manager?) who has a thankless job trying to attend to a thousand details AND placate the complaints of the hotel guests, many of which are legitimate. A four-star hotel should not turn off its AC by a date on the calendar rather than based on the... More

Our group stayed here a couple of nights during a two week tour of Sicily. Negatives: 1.staff service and attitude, 2. food, 3. cleanliness. Also, we happened to arrive during a regular seasonal shut down of a/c in the rooms...yet the island was experiencing unusually warm weather. We slept in very warm rooms, with no screens on the windows. Everyone... More

This hotel is a bit impersonal due to it's size and primarily catering for tour groups. Very limited menu which never changes for evening meals. Although the waiters are very good and work hard we had to wait 45 mins & another night 1hour before we got anything to eat. Several items for breakfast you would expect to be available... More

3 times I told the receptionist that the lights were not working in the hallway in my bedroom. I couldn't see in the wardrobe or see my safe as the lights should have illuminated this. In despair I visited the unhelpful receptionist. She actually told me to take the cover off the electrical panel and fiddle around( my words) I... More

This was a stop as part of a recent tour group. While the hotel is in a great location overlooking the Mediterranean, it lacks any charm. Pretty basic. The beach access was not clean, littered with garbage. The hotel and room felt dusty and dirty, the bed linens were worn and the front desk service lacking. It almost gave the... More

They failed to provide me with alternative booking dates when I was making the reservation for the 4th time and even tried to convice me that it was my fault for not asking for them. The head...

We used Mazara del Vallo as a base for two nights and were quite pleased with the hotel. The room was a good size and well maintained. It seems to be primarily a hotel for business, but it suited our needs. Breakfast was fine. No problems with the wi-fi. The historic centre of Mazara was a pleasant 12 minute walk... More
