“friendly place, nice special touches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

We spent one night in this hotel outside of Ragusa. It is true it isn't too close to old Ragusa, but it isn't that far either, and the people at the hotel were really great. We had a family room and they actually put a Christmas tree in the room with gifts for our son under the tree. They also brought a wonderful hot chocolate/fruit salad for us to the room as a welcome. The place is charming and comfortable. I would definitely recommend it.

But location a but off if you are visiting Ragusa (8-10km away) and price at level of 4 star hotel. Great service, nice helpful staff, reasonable breakfast, large room. Overal nice place but you might want to consider a place closer to Ragusa, if your focus is not the beach.

We fell into this charming hotel by accident and it was truly a blessing that we had car trouble! Coming into the village of Ragusa late at night, we discovered that our rental car would not go into reverse. Pulling into a petrol station, the staff told us that the best hotel to go to was "Artemisia Resort". They phoned ahead for us and advised us that the parking there would not be a problem since the driveway was circular. It was only a few kilometers away and easy to find. The night person at the front desk spoke English quite well and was ready for us. He escorted us to the most gorgeous room in this converted farmhouse. Wow!! The room was huge by European standards (and by Canadian standards as well!). It was beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and the bed was fabulous! What a find! The price per night at Artemisia was cheaper than other hotels that we had stayed at and much, much nicer.The night person told us that the woman working at the front desk spoke very good English and would help us in the morning to sort out exchanging cars with Avis in the town of Ragusa. In the morning, we met Valentina at the front desk who informed us, in excellent English, that her uncle would be coming by to escort us to Avis in Ragusa to change our car. We went to the breakfast room where they had set out a fabulous breakfast of eggs, cereals, pastries, cold meats, cheeses from the area, juice and hot European coffee (our favourite!), We were indeed getting spoiled! We asked if we could stay another night at the hotel as we wanted to explore the Unesco world heritage towns all around Ragusa (Noto and Iblia come to mind and have to be seen!!). No problem since we were traveling during the month of April and it was not busy. Great! Her uncle Vincenzo (one of the owners of Artemisial) came right after breakfast and we followed him to the Avis counter in the town of Ragusa. He stayed with us to make sure that everything went well at Avis (and it did!) and then he led us to the old city of Ibla. We can't say enough about Artemisia Hotel except that you will not be disappointed. The hotel also put in a gorgeous pool but since it was mid-April, it was too cool to use it. Molte grazie Vallentina and Vincenzo!

We had a fantastic stay here. The room was enormous and had a sofa that looked like it probably made up into a bed if you had a child with you. There was also a table & 2 chairs and a communicating door so it would be a good place if you were going as a family. After staying in lots of town centre hotels in Sicily this felt like an oasis and it was wonderful to have the swimming pool and outside space to relax in. The staff were friendly and helpful and I would stay here again like a shot.

A fantastic Sicilian resort with brilliant staff and close to what appear to be undiscovered (at least by the Lonely Planet!) beaches along an amazing coastline. We holidayed in September when the locals had all returned to work - no more than 10 - 15 people on the glorious beaches at any one time and our choice of restaurants along the seafront. The staff couldn't have been more helpful - lots of tips on local restaurants and beaches and even an offer of GPS! It's a great base to explore the baroque towns of Modica, Ragusa Ibla and Syracuesa although you will need a car - and if coming from the UK or Ireland nerves of steel for the first few days of experiencing Italian driving!

but this resort is fabulous.All the other positive comments about the staff,the service ,the location and the breakfasts are true.The location means that the south eastern coast with its magical beaches and the baroque towns are in easy reach (but you need a car). The rooms are spacious and quiet and it is clear that the staff take a great pride in their workplace and in contributing to the well being of their guests.The gardens will mature beautifully and we will certainly go back to see that.

Room Tip: The ground floor rooms have their own terraces

We were recommended the Artemisia Resort Hotel by some friends who raved about it and so we had very high expectations which probably coloured out judgement. First of all, Artemisia Resort Hotel is neither a resort (OK - it has a pool) nor a hotel (it has no dining room, bar or lounge facilities). However it is an outstanding B&B. The most important feature are the staff who are fantastic - nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast is a Sicilian spread of sweet delights - as one guest said to us - 'its like a birthday party - all those cakes'. However there are some savoury items more suited to the UK and Irish palate as well. The accommodation is of a very high standard and if we were being 'picky' they could improve on the plastic glasses in the rooms and might have tissues in the bathroom. The biggest issue is that there is no dining facility on site and this means driving to find a restaurant and therefore no drinking for the driver. The hotel staff did say they were planning a restaurant and that would make Artemisia a perfect choice for visiting this interesting region of Sicily.
