This hotel has a lot going for it. It's in a beautiful position overlooking the sea on a quiet, traffic-free path to the left and the sea-front road to the right. I stayed for four nights with my wife and son in a triple room which was comfortable, spacious, spotlessly clean and everything worked well. The staff were all particularly friendly and happy to offer practical advice on things to do, and even where to get a Covid test in Trapani, which wasn't easy. Seeing as everything in life can always be improved, if I had to find one thing it might be the breakfast. In itself it was very good, fresh and tasty, and served on a lovely fourth floor terrace with great views. But the items on offer were the same every day. Just changing those cakes or pastries, or the types of cereal, fruit, yoghurt or scrambled egg occasionally would be a good innovation. Everything is also cleared away at 10, which I think is a little bit early for a classy hotel. A lie-in is nice on holiday and I think 10:30 or 11 is more reasonable. But these are minor considerations. It's a great hotel with great people and I thoroughly recommend it.

This is one of our favorite hotels in Sicily. Missing Trapani now. Stunning views, amazing breakfast set-up, and very comfortable and memorable all around. Fantastic experience from the moment we stepped foot inside (Summer ‘19).

Stayed here only for one night a beautiful hotel with a lot of character and many original features. Right on the water front but only a minutes walk from the mains streets. Room was large and airy. Clean. The hotel also boasted a lovely gym and a reading room with vaulted ceilings and comfy chairs. Breakfast was nice. Parking only a moment away. Staff were wonderful and polite.

We stayed 5 nights at La Gancia. The hotel is a great base for going to the Egadi islands and nearby beaches during the day and enjoying the old town in the evening. Our room was large, air conditioned and had a seaside view. You can actually swim in that town beach on a nice day when the water is clear! Sometimes it was windy and not able to swim. Breakfast on the rooftop is nice and service is friendly. With COVID, the kind waitress will take your buffet order on paper and send to your table. So many restaurants in the area, you are spoilt for choice. The nearest car park is a 8 min walk. Walk inside Via Garibaldi street not on the sea street to protect from the sun.

Very comfortable sparkling clean rooms with good showers. Awesome views of the Mediterranean to enjoy the Sunrise and Sunset. Breakfast was spectacular with very attentive friendly staff. The front desk staff was very helpful with guiding us with must see things in the short amount of time we had. Restaurants, bakeries and shopping area is close walking distance. Parking is bit of a challenge.
