Clung to the sedimentary rock from which it's named after: "Giuggiulena" the building is almost a place set apart, a secret place, a shelter of serenity and natural beauty overlooking the sea accompanied by the waves and the moon. The sight goes up to the big harbour's creek and Ortigia, from where is just 15 minute walk.The love we feel for this place and our guests naturally makes us pay attention and extra care to every single detail in order to offer them joyful days and unforgettable nights.

Our hosts, Sabrina and Claudia, were so warm and welcoming. The accommodations were spectacular, while the location was perfecto! Each morning we were treated with a smile and a beautiful breakfast. Our room was spacious, clean, pretty and the balcony!!! I would love to return for a longer stay at the Giuggiulena and to see my friends again! Thank you so much Sabrina and Claudia, please come see me in New Jersey! Much love and thanks, Anthony and Denise Digiacinto

I just spent 4 glorious days at this b and b, hosted by sisters sabrina and claudia who went above all expectations to perfect my holiday and feel like i am in a family home .. but with lots of fun. Claudia prepares a gourmet breakfast with homemade cakes and savoury pastries plus fruit, yoghurt, local cheeses and salamis. Sabrina advised and helped me with any issue and arranged a wonderful on site massage in their massage room on the ocean. You can snorkle from the steps of this level, straight into the sea with coral and rocky groves. Mamalu serves, cleans, helps and smiles, a lovely guy from west africa and part of the relaxed scene. The rooms have what one hopes and expects, modern bathroom, coffee machine, minibar, gowns, slippers and luxury toiletries, flat screen tv, and views literally jutting out into the sea. The common living/dining area consists of a large room with terrace on the sea where breakfast is served, Nice place just to hang out with books and music. It suits solo travellers ( myself) couples, families with kids, is on the bus route to the island of ortigia (10 minutes) but still apart from the hustle and bustle, there is a lovely local seafood snd pizza restaurant 100 meters away, on a terrace overlooking the sea, i ate daily there, what more could one want.

Guiggiulena is truly amazing. The building is set right by the waterfront, with a small stone stairway right down into the water. Clear water with loads of fish to snorkle among. Our room was spacious, clean and tastefully decorated. The building could use a little maintenance here and there, but it was nothing that affected the overall impression. The breakfast was the best we had in Sicily (stayed in three different places). Small but delicious and fresh buffet. Ortigia is a 20 min walk from Guiggilena, taxi was about 17 euros. The hosts were super friendly and helpful, we got some great restaurant tips from Sabrina. I loved this place and would love to visit it again!
