I'm puzzled by the positive reviews for this place. We found it thoroughly depressing and meanly run. The woman who seems to own and run it walks around in a daze like a Countess thoroughly unfazed when the restaurant is in chaos. The bathroom amenities are something from a cheap 2 star American motel, the restaurant is severely understaffed (... More

The first thing you notice when you arrive in Villa Favorita is the familiar atmosphere. always harder to find. the savoir faire of the owner who runs the place and the politeness of all the staff really make the difference. Breakfast is just amazing with a mixed choice of italian and continental dishes. for dinner the choice is not that... More

Everytime I need a break from the rainy London I return to sicily with a direct flight to Catania, and Villa Favorita is just the perfect place to switch off and take a break in a warm place! this relais stands just 4km from the sea in Noto and is run by the owner which makes it very homelike.

If you want to visit the area of the Sicilian Baroque, this place is a good solution. The villa, but it looks more like a masseria, dates from the 18th century, and has a stunning pool for real swimming. What should really be improved is the food at breakfast, not really worth a 4-star resort. The room was smallish and... More

A very positive start to our week-long trip through the island. The staff were lovely, very helpful and charming, thank you! The hotel decor and rooms were typically Italian: halfway between old fashioned and traditional chic. The hotel and grounds were totally clean and well maintained though. The pool area was lovely: nice set up of loungers parasols and a... More

You couldn't want for nicer surroundings, comfortable rooms, spacious photogenic grounds, impressive swimming pool but other than for breakfast their restaurant is a great disappointment. Therefore book on a B & B basis and eat in nearby (taxi ride) Noto

Amazing historic hotel in a peaceful rural setting with a lovely pool and helpful staff. Like the other reviews the food is not great but with Noto only a short distance away it makes a perfect base. It is lovely to be able to sit outside and enjoy breakfast in a quiet countryside.

This hotel has marvellous buildings and a wonderful setting in the beautiful Noto valley. Sadly, that is where it ends. The rooms are poorly designed and equipped. The stingy managment employs few staff who are overworked and stressed.

Dear Mrs or Mr P D, We are sorry for this anonymous review . The property adopted a Sicilian style in hospitality, made of simple elements. This is the first negative comment in 12 years about stressed staff, who is the same in these years. Maybe also "our guest" was not relaxed and we are really sorry about that, because... More

Firstly our room was over the kitchens, and the smell was not very nice, we were moved to a fantastic room in the South wing overlooking towards the sea, and over the gardens, A car is definitely needed as Noto is four miles away and there are no restaurants nearby.

We loved our stay at Villa Favorita. The building is historic, in a very rural setting, very clean, spacious, lovely garden, terrace and pool. The staff are all charming, especially Eleonora and Patrizia on Reception, who could not have been more helpful. The food is not great, but it doesn't matter, you are only 10 minutes by car from wonderful... More
