“Piccolo Mondo indeed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Well, we spent a few days here in late October and on the terrace outside the hotel met a gentleman who was friends at university with my wife's ex-boss. Anyway, the hotel is run by Vito and his wife who are charming hosts. They do everything to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The whole town had an end-of-season feel to it which was actually rather nice as I imagine it would be teeming in summer. With warm sun and a good book we were able to enjoy a morning on the beach after a breakfast of cereals, fruit, croissants and beautiful Sicilian homemade cake. Endless refills of coffee if you want them. Room was clean, although not the largest, and the bed comfortable. Once again it is the service that makes the hotel so highly rated and this was excellent throughout from the host to the maid. And as a lovely touch, and because we were the very last guests of the season, Vito gave us a little present of beautiful Sicilian olive oil.

A nice little hotel with a very friendly and helpful staff. We arrived very late at night by car, but Vito, the owner, was still there to help us with the luggage.
The room was clean and comfortable and the only possible complaint could have been the cappuccino at breakfast, but forget about that if you drink your coffe at Starbucks...

My Wife and I stayed for a week in late August. Vito and Marieangela are wonderful people and great hosts. No pretences, just plain freindly accomodating people. Great Hotel, superbly located, unbrella and sunlounge reserved for you. It does not get much better. We had a lovely time, thank you guys.

Room Tip: Book a balcony room at the rear if you can help it. Small balcony but great views to in 3 direction...

We stayed at Hotel Piccolo Mondo for 10 nights and we were not disappointed! When we arrived we were greated by both Mariangela and Vito who were incredibly welcoming and gave us lots of tips and recommendations of places to eat and things to do. The room was a good size and was spotlessly clean, it had air con and we found the bed very comfortable. The balcony was a bit of a let down as we had a middle one that you couldn't go out onto but this was more than compensated by the glorious roof terrace which we used every night, we were the only ones using it though and we thought that the hotel could exploit this feature a bit more with extra tables etc. The shower was a bit small but this didn't bother us. Breakfast was a mixture of fruit, cereal and lovely pastries completed by a lovely Italian coffee and Mariangela remember every morning what coffe we had - this was just one of many small touches that allowed us to feel relaxed and welcome. We absolutely loved San Vito lo capo and enjoyed the beautiful beach and lively town and we definitely plan to return and when we do we will be staying again at Hotel Piccolo Mondo. Thank you to all the staff from Anna and Paul!

Super nice! The staff is very friendly and helpful. Two steps from the beach, the stores and restaurants. Not pricey at all and it includes and umbrella for the beach, you really need it (beaches get busy in summer all around Italy) I would definitely recommend this to a friend.

Great hotel with nice location (close to the beach) and very friendly and helpful host. The hotel is newly renovated and the rooms are very nice with great a/c functionalities. I will recommend this hotel, and would absolutely stay here again when/if I retyrn to San Vito Lo Capo.

For greater objectivity, we make two comments:
1. The hotel:
Pros:- SPOTLESSLY CLEAN;
- big room;
- minibar, safe box, a/c;
- free wi-fi;
- small balcony with partial sea view (but only a seat...);
- confy beds;
- good breakfast;
- private sector on the beach (with umbrella and two sunbeds- even we are three...).
Cons:- many problems in the bathroom (small shower- a nightmare!, extremely slow drain, hot water alternate with cold water, sometimes the stench came from plants);
- breakfast repetitive and boring (good and fresh, though);
- TV- only seven channels (considering the total evening boredom, it would have been the only fun...);
- poor soundproof of the room walls;
- a bit expensive for what the area it offered (7 days, a triple, 1540 euros, booked with 8 months earlier- in comparison, a week before, 7 days, triple, Pensione Svizzera in Taormina, absolutely fabulous, 830 euros...).
2. The staff.
FANTASTIC!!!
One of the few hotels that we felt like home- all were great, with a special mention for Mr. Vito, the owner, and Ms. MARIANGELA, a wonderful person, always smiling, who speak english and who arranged for us a trip to Zingaro and the transfer to Palermo airport. Thank you!
Overall, a beautiful stay, but, for the very demanding tourists, do not believe that this will be the same rating!
San Vito was a big disappointment (boring, nothing to do, nothing to see and, our nightmare, the AWFUL smell of fish couscous, that kept us away from any restaurant.
