“An outstanding oasis of peace amidst enchanting Southern Sicily”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

My expectations were high and they have eventually been met and even exceeded. I spent unfortunately only one night, yet enough to fully appreciate the resort. It is perfectly nested close to a dramatic medieval castle along the sea. The structure dwells naturally in the landscape, while the personnel is there to satisfy all your needs and wishes (if not whims). From every room you can expand your view on the blue Mediterranean sea. During my stay, the hotel was almost fully booked, I could though change my room overnight since the bathroom in my previous accomodation had an intermittent flow of hot water. The dinner was a palatable experience : the food was gorgeous and the staff extremely kind and efficient. The same can be said unsuprisingly of breakfast; later on I had sadly to leave, not without deemaing of coming back again soon.

Great spot with charming beach, warm hospitality, great food, pool and SPA. Morning and evening breeze make breakfast and aperitifs time a really relaxing ritual. Delightful and competent concierge with great restaurant and tour recommendations.

Room Tip: Go to the Fattoria dependance ....worth the price

Nice little resort, overlooking the old castle, great little beach, from the gardener to the
director - everbody tries to make your stay unforgettable. Best breafkast choice we had on
our several trips though Sicilia. The Restaurant offers very good Italian cuisine. For the 2nd
evening we pre-ordered a typcial sicilian menue. What we got was just outstanding.
Rooms are big or very big. Furnished an equipped in a very modern and trendy style,
as the hotel lobby and bar are. There are several little Patios in the garden where you can
enjoy a coffe in the morning or a glass wine in the evening. Chiristina and her team of the Wellness and Spa center offer latest treatments. Very porfessional these ladies. Also in the
Wellness chilling is everything.

I did not care much for the area around butera but this hotel was very nice. they tried very hard to be the best they could be. live music at dinner, clean and beautiful rooms, bar at the pool, appetizers at the bar during cocktail hour.

i didn't care much for having to use a voucher to get a towel at the beach or pool but they must have to do it for some reason. the internet service is poor but that is pretty common. i thought the food could be better but eating at the restaurant outside with live music and a view of the castle was relaxing and very nice. They were also great to our 15 month old.
i would highly recommend this hotel if you are staying in the butera area.

Great relaxing atmosphere, nice pool and beach, very private. Gated property, large gate
even to enter with a car. Nice views and view of castle. Staff very nice and polite. Rooms are very nice and modern. Everything clean and large property. A better choice than the crowded Argigento hotels. Only about 45 minutes from Valley of Temples and
Agrigento. Not much choice for dining other than the resort, but is a nice restaurant.
A very nice secluded resort/hotel. We only stayed one night while passing through, but
would have loved to stay another night just to have relaxed and enjoyed the property.

I really enjoyed staying at the Falconara. The location is beautiful near beach and a magnificent view on the Castle. Not only does one has an opportunity to relax on this beach - as well as a (large) swimming pool. On top of all, the restaurant is outstanding, with a nice touch of local Sicilian food specialities and extremely well selected local wines.
Alltogether a pleasant and agreable stay, with pretty helpful and hospitable staff.
Car needed for visits of the surrounded places.

just few words to say thank you to the staff of this wonderful hotel..i stayed alone for one week, to relax and think about my life...it was a wonderful stay..nice beach, great food, but the great thing was the staff especially the tall night porter with his impressive capacity to feel the guest as at home...professional and hardworker and the same is for the other guy, the nice and young valet with his care and attention towards me.. The castle is fantastic and very suggestive. Lots of things to do nearby: wine and food tasting, guided tours in caltagirone, piazza armerina, agrigento. the hotei is in a central position.
So I advice this hotelto my friends!!
