Last year we came to Hotel Villamare in Fontane Bianche, and because we had a great experience we decided to come back again this summer. Wow, it was even better from what a remembered. The venue, the rooms, the food but mainly the services were out of this world. Definitely recommending Hotel Villamare if you are thinking of going to Fontane Bianche!!
We somehow managed to find this hotel in the dark having landed at Catania Airport 5 hours earlier! Splendidly quirky beach hotel with a lovely garden and 2 minutes walk from a sandy beach. The Villamare has some of the most charming staff we have met anywhere in the world they really are a class act and nothing is too much trouble for them. The rooms are perfectly OK and the breakfast 5 star with a staggering choice of food including English breakfast! The Hotel is well placed for exploring Siracuse, Ortigia and Noto so I would strongly recommend it.
We loved our stay at this beautiful small hotel!!! Everything about it was perfect for us - half a block to the sea with a white sand beach and clear blue water, amazing garden and pool area, clean comfortable rooms...... but it is the staff that makes Hotel Villamare so special. They were so friendly and accommodating, making sure we were comfortable and addressing every question and request quickly. I cannot say enough about our stay here, and would recommend it to anyone!
Just returned from a very comfortable stay in the Hotel Villamare. We had three rooms all individually decorated and extremely clean and comfortable. All had an outdoor seating area and great air con, which is a must in the August heat! I was pleasantly surprised with the spaciousness of the rooms as previous reviews described them as small and I had warned the family beforehand. It was not the case at all! The triple room with 3 adults might be a little cosy but the balcony was large and a huge bathroom to compensate. The third bed is a full size single dressed as a sofa but no compromise on comfort at all. All the linens were beautiful and crisp. The beds really comfy. There was ample storage in all rooms and the eco- friendly nature of the hotel is appreciated. The breakfast in the hotel has a vast choice including hot and cold items and local specialities all delicious! There was plenty of choice for anyone with allergies or intolerances. The location of the hotel is so convenient for a wide popular sandy beach. Also very quick and easy to travel to Ortigia, Noto and the surrounding areas. Fontane Bianche has only a couple of restaurants so night life is very low key. We enjoyed after dinner drinks in the garden with lovely snacks- (Paula gin & tonic!) Hotel drink prices were expensive but that is to be expected when you have such a small hotel providing individual service. Claudia and the rest of the hotel staff were warm and friendly and went out of their way to be helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Excellent customer service. Thank you. …
The moment you arrive you get a splash of smells from the flowers surrounding the entrance, and that follows you the entire stay. I have never seen such a small place decorated so lovely and used so smart. You have a feeling of very cosy and very tendered place, with excellent customer care from the staff. We stayed there for 5 days and enjoyed it, their garden is beautiful to sit and have dinner at, and the food is fabulous. Our room was very small, and that was the only thing we could’ve changed if we wanted. Public beach is just 2 minutes of walk from the hotel, but it is quite busy and not so enjoyable considering the crowd. Train station is 20minutes of walk, we used it to visit nearby Noto. All the cudos to the staff!
