I have spent one week in May at the Falconara in a junior suite.
It is located about 20 km from Gela and 120 km from Catana airport. It is a good base to visit the Piazza Armerina villa (recently reopened), Agrigente, Caltagirone and Ragusa.
The hotel has a fine small beach, on two levels : the beach, and somewhat higher, a row of fine gazebos for those who seek a quiet place. By the way, the reservation of the gazebos at 35 EUR/day is a pure rip-off, when it is not high season.
From the beach, there is a fine view on the old castle and the sea; this area is absolutely quiet and mostly enjoyable.
Next to the gazebos, is the "Fattoria", a fine ancient building with presumably the best rooms with seaview; unfortunately, it was closed till mid-May.
Then, there is a large garden damaged by paths covered by orange tarmac (probably a cheap option to reduce maintenance costs).
Close to the road - but there is not so much traffic noise - is a large swimming pool; I do not understand why this pool has not been positioned closer to the beach.
The reception staff is kind and helpful.
The food is absolutely great; the chef Domenico uses local fresh products, and the service is efficient. The wine list strictly Sicilian, which is not an issue; the local production is worth exploring.
And then comes the building that ruins your experience : the hotel's main building, a bland contruction looking like a cheap seventies holiday club. The rooms are so-said "minimalist" ... I would say "minimum" : they lack lighting, and are made even darker by the black pavement; the curtains are some synthetic thing, yellow and lilac; matter of taste. The bathroom is ok, and everything is clean.
It is a pity that a place with such a potential is damaged by poor architecture and interior design.
