“Excellent find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

Stayed here for one night, awaiting the ferry back to Malta. The hotel is beautifully done up, unusual, but nonetheless expertly converted. The location is super; a few minutes drive from Ispica, but yet secluded from the main town. Very well kept amenities; rooms spacious, clean and very well kept; ample parking on site. Reception was very welcoming and helpful. Excellent value; would love to visit again.

A friend of mine and I stayed at this charming hotel, as a stop-over. Our wives and children had gone back home to Malta so it was just one night. The hotel is charming and offers most amenities. The whole property has really been done up well and clearly there has been a lot of attention to detail. The young lady hosting us was ever so helpful. I would definitely recommend.

A veritable oasis in the middle of a busy agricultural area. It's the sort of place where you want to sit in the garden all day with a book and a glass of something cool. Both breakfast and dinner were very very good. As is the service. The location (in terms of proximity to attractions in the Southeast of Sicily) is perfect. Take the hotel's advice regarding beeches otherwise you spend whole chunks of time trying to find somewhere suitable.

We stayed at Torre Marabino twice, once for our honeymoon back in October 2010 and recently in April 2013 and both visits were absolutely excellent. Simply there aren't enough superlatives to describe the place. Staff is super friendly and very helpful. Food is extremely scrumptious. Setting is truly stunning. Room is great. Everything is simply exquisite. Our highlight in each visit is the restaurant and the 3-5 courses menu (depending on how much your stomach can take!). Of course, the wine selection is fabulous too, which makes this place is a diamond in the rough! Top tip: if you rent a car or have your own transport, go to the coast just further down south of Torre Marabino, about 5-10 minutes away driving. The beach there is absolutely lovely! Seeing is believing. I'll say no more, it's for you to prove it!

Had excellent stay here. Weather warm & sunny (part humid, part windy) so pool still in use. Very friendly staff, and very well maintained property and gardens. Large terrace facing the coast, perfect for pre- and post- dinner drinks. Second terrace area used for breakfast - which was excellent with fresh pastries (savoury and sweet), fruits, cheeses etc.. Dinners were consistently good, the chef has delicate touch with subtle flavours. Not cheap but you can freely choose which courses to have, according to appetite and purse. Large room with mezzanine, opened onto south terrace.

Room Tip: Rosa Nera opens onto main patio - but is well screened.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had a deluxe room, which was very spacious and even had a small, well-equipped kitchenette. We hadn't intended to eat here every night and only booked bed and breakfast, but the food was so varied, innovative and delicious that we found ourselves in the restaurant every evening. The gardens are lovely and very well looked after and the pool area is delightful too. All of the staff were friendly and helpful and we can't really think of anything which could be done to improve the property. It is located in fairly isolated quiet countryside and you have to be prepared to drive, unless you plan to chill out at the property for your whole stay, as there isn't anything nearby. However there are lots of amazing towns and good coastal areas within a short driving distance. We would definitely be happy to stay here again.

We booked a twin bedded room, but found none available on arrival all seven rooms have double beds, the staff had put a tiny single bed in our room to accomodate, but not quite the same. The hotel is very small set in farmland with a nice pool and outside area. The staff are attentive and very helpful, luigi is just the best he ran the bar and restaurant nothing was ever too much trouble. You really need aCar we found the Taxi very expensive, no bus service around the area. If you have a problem with stairs then this hotel is not for you, very steep stairs to all rooms.
The food is good but we found it a bit rich after a couple of days, but salads are available the young Chef whom we met is amazing. We had a late flight out but had to be out of our room by 10am which made it a very long day, with no where to shower or freshen up, but all in all it was enjoyable.

Room Tip: choose one with a kitchenette and fridge very handy and well equipped
