Travelers' Choice
Verdura – a paradisiacal expanse on Sicily’s stunning southwest coast – is their flagship resort. 230 hectares of sun-blushed Mediterranean coastline, countryside and hotel: space for the Forte ethos to shine. Insightful hospitality quietly caters to every desire. Sleek, environmentally sensitive architecture fuses with Latin terracottas, ochres and violets. Local charm with universal style. Italianate furnishings, breeze-brushed white muslins and, always, a sea view. Verdura’s vast scale and escapist atmosphere afford endless indulgence and choice. Choice to unfurl in its capacious spa, or lap its infinity pool. To play tennis among its orange groves. A round or two of golf. To master Sicilian cooking, or simply savour it by the sea. To explore Verdura’s 12th-century tower; helicopter across Etna; or stroll along its private beach. It’s your decision, at the Fortes’ invitation.

5* experience - stayed with a friend for 3n 3 rounds of golf on the excellent East & West courses. Room was great, spacious and excellent amenities and turn down service. All rooms seem to have a fantastic sea view which is lovely. The outdoor pool was cold and not heated but the spa made up for this with 4 outdoor hydrotherapy pools and a superb indoor lap pool. Excellent (huge) steam room with saunas in respective changing rooms. The service at all bars and restaurants was outstanding - the fresh fish options at Amare were great, and all dishes were excellent. At the bar, restaurant, reception and club house all staff were friendly and helpful. The golf courses were in good condition, East with more hazards and nice layout and the West with more signature holes along the coastline. Few things for improvement with the golf; Carts had no gps - would expect it 2/3 days no starter at the hut Distance markers not very clear No drinks buggy service in 3 rounds! No halfway house Clubs not cleaned Golf clubhouse closed for refurb Course was quiet in April which was a bonus - rounds within 4 hours for 2 with a buggy. However post round drinks at the hotel terrace were fabulous. 3 great restaurants, casual bar, hotel restaurant and Amare beach restaurant. Not much to do locally without a car and travelling at least 20 mins to nearby towns - however the hotel is a perfect resort location for rest & relaxation, golf or spa. Appeared to be good facilities for kids with kids club with small pool, basketball, volleyball, football, tennis and an imported sandy beach (rest is rocky). Would happily return!

Hotel's Favorite
There are so many words we could use to say how absolutely fantastic this resort is and yes it is a resort . One which you could never leave but that would be a shame as there is much to see In this corner of Sicily. The resort has everything golf tennis water sports spa. Restaurants galore. The wonderful thing about the place is there is room to roam even I guess In the busier summer months there is a huge amount of space that nowhere would feel too crowded. Our room a deluxe had the joy of an outside terrace with sun beds in the garden so if peace is what you want it’s easy to find . The best start to the day is the lovely buongiorno restaurant. Gianfranco and all the staff there deserve a special mention always full of tips and useful knowledge. The more casual pizza restaurant at the golf club is a welcome place to eat for a more casual evening and living it up at the fish restaurant is a must for a special evening . If sunsets are your thing as they are mine , then you are in luck at verdura . Every restaurant has a sunset view . Special to enjoy with an aperetivo before dinner . Slight gripe would be cost of Paddle tennis courts … 75 euros for an hour . Excessive cost when all the courts were lying empty I’m sure because of the heat …that said a use of the spa for your hour and half each day if you want it was free and a lovely thing to do in the early evening . Go see the sites at argiento go to the nearby town of Sciacca for a look round the pottery shops but come back to a welcome every time at Verdura.

Best Martini!! The service is exceptional very personal and very welcomed. You feel at home while you are here. You can ask any server a question and if he or she doesn’t know the answer then he or she will find someone that does. Very accommodating and will move mountains to make you are taken care of. Very good for small groups and any honeymooners out there!

Daniele was great. A wonderful way to spend an hour and we learned a lot. And drank a lot more...who knew that marmalade.and gin could be a hangover cure? We tried the breakfast martini, aglia (Sicilian tequila, agave, lime juice and Cointreau) and lavender (gin, lavender syrup and vermouth). Plus Amara

The Verdura resort in Sciacca, Sicily was amazing! Conveniently located 90 minutes south of Palermo, this Rocco Forte property is relatively easy to access. This was my second stay. The first was several years ago as part of company golf retreat. It is a facility well suited to business groups, with 2 golf courses, clay tennis courts, a full spa (the largest spa in Europe, according to the staff), 4 on-site restaurants with different menus, and a large, separate complex with multiple meeting rooms. This trip was just my wife and I and, who’d have known - it turned out to be a very romantic place for couples as well. Although we took advantage of the location to visit nearby Agrigento and the Valley of the Temples, we just enjoyed hanging out on the grounds and enjoying the amazing facility: the pools, the beach, the long trails, and a large, comfortable room. Even in early November, the weather was warm, almost tropical. The staff is extremely attentive and professional. A special recognition goes to the staff at the beautiful, indoor/outdoor breakfast room. The manager of the breakfast room made it a point to get to know us personally (even though we only stayed 4 nights) and offered us sight-seeing tips. It was hard to break away from the breakfast room given the vast spread of Sicilian treats and the warm service we received. This hotel is a great get-away and a welcomed, quiet break from the charming madness of Palermo, Catania and Taormina.

Lovely sprawling resort on the Mediterranean. My husband and I stayed here for just one night on our way from Palermo to Taormina and it provided us with a delightful escape. He golfed and enjoyed it immensely, while I enjoyed the beautiful beach. I appreciated that there was a lifeguard on duty even though I was the only swimmer around and that stairs and carpets were laid down to ease one's way from the soft sand over the rocks to the sea. The pool was possibly the largest I've ever seen though very cold so I did not go in. The spa and thalassotherapy pools were a perfect way to unwind at the end of the day. Dinner at Amare, the seafood restaurant overlooking the Med was sublime and we had the best dinner of our Sicilian trip there. Staff were friendly and attentive.
