A lovely setting, from the well tended gardens to the terraces to the pool, this seven room hotel is a great place to relax. We stayed in the Eureka suite, a large room with the bed on a mezzanine level above a sitting room and kitchenette.
Breakfast catered for all palates, with a good mixture of both sweet and savoury options including fresh fruit, several types of organic honey, freshly baked cakes, freshly baked savoury options and fantastic tomatoes and mozzarella and to drink several types of juice, still and sparkling water and freshly made coffee.
The dinner menu changed daily, offering two options for each course, (antipasti, primi, secondi) usually one fish and one meat or vegetable and several desserts. The restaurant also offers a two tasting menu options and the wine list includes a broad selection of local wines.
We thought the food was excellent and the service matched the food, expect to pay around €100-€125 for dinner and a mid priced bottle of wine.
We used Marribino as a base to explore the local area, particularly worth a visit, in our view are Modica, Noto, (but in both cases seek out the old town rather than the new) and on the coast Marazima and for a deserted beach, try the wildlife reserve Vendacari.
We would recommend a trip to Torre 's vineyard for a tour and tasting. We have been on several vineyard tours, but never one on a fully 'biodynamic' vineyard, for biodynamic think organic 'plus'. The highlights of the tasting were the Rose and the Nero d'avolo reserva, both, in our view, hidden gems and worth seeking out.
