Escaped from the north of Sicily and the rain to the south and a bit more sun and warmth. This hotel was a great oasis of calm and comfort. Only about 6 rooms. Rooms were clean and tidy and all had a little terrace over the pool or garden. Unfortunately due to the rain they were not usable but good... More

Dear Studd2710, thank you very much for your positive review. I would like to explain the reason why you didn't find fresh orange juice at breakfast. This time of year we can't offer fresh orange juice because here in Sicily oranges are in season in December and we usually pick them directly from our garden. We prefer to offer seasonal... More

This place is really very special; it's got a small number of rooms which makes it a very relaxed place to be (we never found it too be too busy given the number of rooms and number of people staying). The staff were amazingly helpful, often going way above and beyond what anyone could possibly reasonably expect. The grounds are... More

We chanced upon this hotel when trying to find a fairly last minute holiday with Long Travel. Basically we took what was on offer which turned out to be a blessing!, We arrived very late at night but the kitchen was still able to offer us a full meal ( we really only expected a snack) and some delicious wine....

It was a real pleasure to stay at this hotel. The staff were welcoming, food very good and although a small hotel - that was its charm - it met all our needs. The meals were tasty and well presented. Nice pool which was never ever crowded.

We spent a week here in July. The room was spacious and comfortable with a nice bathroom and shower. The gardens are beautiful and it was very relaxing. The pool is small so if a family is staying and using it there's not much room for anyone else. But, there are some great beaches nearby as an alternative. Breakfast is... More

Cambiocavello is set in beautiful gardens. The rooms are great, each with their own verandah. The staff are charming and helpful. The food is brilliant and really worth staying in for. What else could one wish for in a summer holiday.
