We selected this hotel for its central location, sea view and ease of parking and all met our expectations beautifully. Our room, overlooking the ocean and former fish-market-turned-Christmas-market, was lovely, quiet, clean, and spacious, as was the bathroom, though the water was non-potable. Lighting in the room was comfortably bright, including bedside lamps. The room included an eating area with cooking/washing facilities, table and chairs, coffee, refrigeration, and an automatic scent sprayer that was a bit strong. Initially, we took out its batteries, but learned that the natural aroma of the seaside room was slightly moldy, so we put the batteries in when we left the room. The receptionists were gracious and knowledgeable and helped us be in the right place at the right time for the Immaculate Conception parade as well as providing excellent dinner recommendations. Sleeping was delightful in very comfortable bed although huge storm our last night was a bit disconcerting. We expected the plastic-enclosed breakfast patio to have been blown off the roof, but the Trapanese must be used to this, and all was well. The breakfast buffet was the most full and varied of our 3-week trip. A side trip to Nubia for the salt flats, museum, restaurant (Salina Calcasi), and sighting of flamingoes in the wild was a special treat. Erice, too, is always lovely for a visit, though we find it a bit quiet in December.
