“Ideal location to discover southern Sicily”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

It is the ideal place to discover the southern part of Sicily. Great for families, amazing pool, tidy garden where kids can play, breakfasts can last all morning with plenty of fresh and local produce!
Our dinners were amazing too! The young chefs are always tempting the guests with new recipes and traditional ingredients, all served by unforgettable Sicilian wines.
The staff and service deserve 5 stars.
Any negatives: it is ideal if you have a car to discover the area and you can reach easily all the main centres, but you need a car if you want to go to Modica just for an ice cream.

We recently spent a delightful week at the Modica Palace Hotel. The hotel and grounds are very modern and tastefully laid out, and the standard of cleanliness second to none.
All members of staff were friendly and efficient and could not do enough to make our trip enjoyable and fun. - A big 'thank you' to Bruna, Pietro, Vittorio, Margherita, Michele et al. - also to Chef who insisted on preparing specials for us including a surprise for my husband's birthday.
If you are on the Montalbano trail or intend to explore the spectacular UNESCO Heritage sites this hotel makes an ideal centre but you will need a car - or hotel staff can recommend an excellent taxi service.

Have just returned from a week long break in Sicily. This time we decided to visit area around Modica, Ragusa, Noto, Marsamemi, Ispica, Sicili etc. Someone recommended staying at the Modica Palace Hotel and I must say that we were so happy to stay there. The rooms are modern and very clean. Breakfast on offer is more than satisfactory and the choice of food is very good. However if you tend to go down in the last few minutes you might find some items have finished and not been replenished. The Pool and area around it, including the landscaping and turf is out of this world. So peaceful and relaxing. They even have these large floats which you can put in the pool and laze about on them to your hearts' content. One day we attended a summer party at the hotel and the food was amazing, not to mention the live singers playing there. Staff were so very helpful and have to mention some people who always were there for us namely Nunzia and Margherita at breakfast and Angelo and Giorgio who were around for drinks or lunch or dinner. Have to also mention the Reception staff. They were always ready to go out of their way to make our stay that bit more enjoyable. We had a hired car for the duration of our stay and I believe it is a must because the hotel is a bit out of the way from the Centre or any other activity around. Although by car it is only 5 minutes to the nearest shops and about 10 to the old City Centre of Modica. However that is one of the things that is so nice about it. The tranquility of the location.
Will surely try and visit again.

Room Tip: When booking, ask for a room with a balcony or a terrace if it is within your price range as it will...

I went with my friend to our yearly holidays to Sicily and staid for one week at Modica Palce Hotel.
It was not so easy to find the hotel because it’s quite difficult to find our way through Modica if you don’t know the village. We called at the end the Hotel and already there they were very friendly and helpful. Actually the people working in this Hotel are very gorgeous, helpful and very friendly. We had a lot of fun with the stuff.
The Room was nice and clean (not very big, we had to store our luggage on the Balcony).
The Restaurant serves you a wide range of good Italian food and the quality is excellent. Breakfast is good. You find everything to start the day. The Pool is very nice. It was always a pleasure to jump in it after return from the beach, having a cold Beer and enjoying the sunset.
To get to the beach you need approx. 15-20 min. by car and also if you want to explore Modica, you need to have a car to get to the village.
We really can recommend this place.

Very modern and clean hotel. Location is very good, we travelled through Modica, Ragusa and Pozzallo and it only took 25 mins max to reach the port. One may also find ample shops surrounding the area. Breakfast was good included bread, ham, cheese, cereals, pastries and juices although on our last day there were certain items missing. The hotel also provided us with free wifi and with free parking which we found very comfortable and safe. Would certainly recommend this hotel, enjoyed every minute of our stay

We spent the weekend in the Victoria suite, we loved it! A big room, with all the comforts you could possibly desire: jacuzzi, champagne, a very nice terrace where we had breakfast over looking the pool...what else? Very welcoming staff and one of the best couple massages! Excellent home-made sweets, cakes, cookies, made with the typical products form Modica like chocolate, pistacchio nuts, ricotta, and others.
Located 5 min from the heart of Modica, but you feel as if you were in a resort away from it all!
Can't wait to go back!

Great grand hotel. Staff was excellent, hotel grounds was excellent. Room was very comfortable. The price included breakfast which was very good. An excellent hotel at an very reasonable price.
The location to the old part of town was a few miles away, need to drive to town.
