Ferragosto at Villa Igea after the restoration works On the 15th August, as usual, we had dinner with friends at the Florio restaurant: 5 stars to the atmosphere, service and music! The next day we dined at the wonderful Igea Terrace. We were very impressed by the delightful welcoming and spontaneous gentlemanliness of the Barman Pietro and his staff. The small attentions received with discretion and elegance contributed to make this an unforgettable evening we will always remember with fondness. Thank you! P & G

Hotel's Favorite
A wonderful hotel, truly 5 star from the quality of the rooms, staffing and service to the overall property. A historic hotel fantastically renovated. There is no beach or access to the sea for swimming (just for boats) but the pool is very nice with a great poolside restaurant. We spent a week here and were very happy with our choice. We had dinner in the terraza/bar almost every night. It seems to be the new place to be and be seen in Palermo which made it great fun. There's plenty to do in and around Palermo and the Villa Igiea is the perfect base.

Villa Igiea is a wonderful hotel that exudes the Forte service ethic. We loved every aspect of the hotel. The view from our room was spectacular and the service and food in the restaurant excellent. Great gym and lovely pool plus very good shuttle service to the city. And, for walkers, the pilgrims’ walk up to the Santa Rosalia grotto provides great exercise and stunning views over the city. Thank you to the entire Villa Igiea.

A stunning restoration of a beautiful building has resulted in a fabulous luxury hotel with tremendous attention to detail. It is not very close to the centre of town, with a shuttle available, but it is in a much more pleasant part of town, overlooking a pretty marina. The gardens and swimming pool are an oasis of calm in a hot and frenetic city.

Everything was perfect. Spacious room, courteous personnel, excellent restaurant. Nice view on the harbour with great gardens and pool. The only drawback is that if you want to go out for dinner it is at least a 20 minutes taxi ride. Definitely recommande this hotel.

A beautifully restored palazzo set in gorgeous gardens with a view down to the sea. This felt like ultimate luxury. The staff are lovely and attentive to every detail - a special thank you to Geronimo in the restaurant but also front of house, cocktail team etc - we felt welcomed, taken care of but never fussed over. Rooms are deeply restful, breakfast and dinners with the garden view are a treat, and the food is truly excellent. This is a perfect base from which to explore Palermo - I very much hope we can return one day!

My husband and I were on a holiday visit to Villa Igiea and we had a fabulous experience. As world travelers, we are very attentive to great service and we found that the staff at the hotel was extremely helpful, charming and well trained. We had a last minute request for a city tour and Philip (head concierge) was able to book it immediately. He recommended restaurants and booked all of our transfers requests. He took care of every detail. This is what a five star hotel and top concierge should be. One of the best experiences in a long time!!

This place is brilliant: So tastefully transformed with a very luxurious feeling - a perfect example of tasteful class! The staff are polite and very professional. However hot it was, the staff were relentlessly immaculate in every way. The cleanliness of the place is immaculate at all times, too. I’m not a fan of Palermo (at all!) and it’s safe to say Villa Igiea is the best place in the city to eat and drink, so I’d advise (for what it’s worth) to not go looking for it - Villa Igiea has it all (apart from maybe more simplistic pasta dishes and a pizza for an English tourist like me). Thanks Villa Igiea for a great hol! :)

Excellent property with an amazing service. The apertitivo and the breakfast were exceptional. The attention to details by the staff is worth mentioning. We consider ourselves experienced travellers and I can comfortably say that the Villa Igiea is one of the best hotels we've stayed in.

If you are dreaming of an outstanding luxurious hotel experience, don’t hesitate. Villa Igiea is a super amazing hotel. After a week in a nice house in the mountains, my husband and me and our teenageson spend a night here before heading home. We arrived very early, and our room wasn’t ready yet. After spending som time by the nice pool, we got our room - and WHAT a room! We were upgrated to The Igiea Suite, it was absolutely stunning. Very big, very beautiful and very well and stylish furnished. And the terrasse… It was just as big and beautiful, and the view was amazing. Our son had a classic room, and of course it was a lot smaller than the suite, but it was very nice too. The service in the Villa Igiea is absolutely top notch. The staff are very kind, the food and drinks are delicious and everything is so beautiful in a stylish and historic way. We have stayed in many five star hotels, and Four Seasons are an all time favourite. But EVERYTHING at Villa Igoea is just as nice as FS, it was a treat from arrival to departure. We will definitely be back, and we will definitely try some og the other Rocco Forte Hotels. We have a new all time favorite.
