Bathroom so great and nice to have robes etc. Food for breakfast wonderful and dinner was fantastic. We did not check out the beach club just stayed by the pool and... More

This beautiful resort in the middle of vinyards offers a total immersion into wine, food and nature. We loved our spaceous room with a little terrace in the front and sea view. The pool with a bar is a great place to enjoy a glass of wine in good company. Not far is a wonderful private beach with amazingly clear... More

Attention to detail is this hotel's forte! Excellent accommodation, great bathrooms and the food was fabulous. The restaurant has a lovely view. Medium size pool, but wonderfully furnished with loungers and a bar! I cannot be too positive about this place!

Very nice place. We had a large room with two double beds - it did not have a sea view, which we had booked and paid for. However, I had, in fairness, booked an extra night by accident which I only realised at the last minute. They managed to resell the extra night and did not charge us for it,... More

We stopped here for a day on our way to the southeast coast. Service was great, the people were friendly, and the food was good. Just the recharge we needed to continue our journey. There are a ton of amenities. Private beach with house and cook. Infinity pool facing the sunset, which is stunning. Great on-site restaurant, and the list... More

The quality of food , wine and service is right up there with the very best. The sommelier was really knowledgeable and had the opportunity to taste some great wines.... More

Truly the highlight of our trip to Western Sicily. The hotel is in the middle of vineyards, has an incredible infinity pool, and fantastic food. Sadly we only had one night there, but made the most of it with a short trip to their local private beach, some wine by the pool watching the sun set, a fantastic dinner with... More

My sister and I stayed here for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The food was delicious and we tried a wide range of the Planeta wines and not one was disappointing with several being excellent. I found the staff were incredibly helpful and knowledgeable and very friendly. The view from the pool and the dining terrace is so... More

The hotel is set on the hill looking over sea towards Porto Palo. Most of the rooms face out towards the sea. We stayed here for our final 3 nights in Sicily.... a bit of luxury at the end. The hotel is lovely. The room we had was large with a well fitted out bathroom with a double shower (no... More

Nice, small hotel in a beautiful area with a stunning view. Fantastic place to hide for a short while and enjoy 'dolce far niente'. Rooms are a bit dated but nonetheless cosy. Quality of food is high, though portions are rather small, except for the price.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The La Foresteria resort is the hallmark of the hospitality of the Planeta family, the ambassadors of Sicily and of its fine wines and oils throughout the world. Located on the southwestern coast of Sicily, in Menfi, a town between Selinunte and Agrigento, it bears resemblance with a typical village of rural homes standing on the hill to watch over the surrounding vineyards and olive groves. An enchanting site located just 4 km away from the crystal-clear sea and the beaches of fine sand of Porto Palo, which has attained 16 Blue Flags, an internationally recognized eco-label awarded to seaside resorts that meet criteria on sustainable environmental management. La Foresteria has 14 spacious rooms, each of which blends together a sense of essentiality and style to offer a vacation truly Mediterranean in spirit in a place of genuine beauty and superb hospitality of the Planeta family. A stay at La Foresteria means enjoying a special vacation and unique experiences: the cooking course that our chef Angelo Pumilia holds to teach you the recipes of the Planeta family and the secrets of traditional Sicilian cuisine, from Sicilian-style pasta with sardines to "true" caponata, from the superb timbale in Ricotta cheese crust to scabbardfish with herbs. Every recipe is made with local ingredients and finely matched with the best Planeta wines. While staying at La Foresteria, you can visit the wine cellar where you can taste wines matched with the dishes of "Casa Planeta". The resort also offers a wide range of services: a restaurant, a marvelous deck level swimming pool, a relaxing Turkish bath, fitness area, bicycles at your disposal for ride to explore the nearby olive groves and vineyards, guided tours to archaeological sites of Selinunte, Agrigento (Valley of Temples), and Segesta. Please refer to the calendar of events and happenings with all the available offers to choose the type of stay you prefer: wellness, sea, romantic, fine cuisine (and drinking), cultural, weekend, last-minute. ... more   less
