I stayed at the Redebora when I went to Sicily to find my family. I went alone, didn't speak the language, and didn't even know where to go to find my relatives. I was kindly put up by this hotel by a travel agency I found near the bus stop in Messina. Redebora knew everything about me, and were expecting my arrival. They were incredibly supportive of my mission to locate my family, gave me an unbelievable rate (I was a student) and literally treated me like I was one of their own. The staff was so charming and helpful knowing I was basically lost, helped me to find people who could help me in my quest, and helped me every step of the way through language barriers and beyond.
Not only was I impressed by the way I was treated, the room was simply amazing. It was charming, clean, and had a beautiful view of the sea (which is only about a block away).
The food at nearby restaurants is fantastic, and i highly recommend visiting the winery down the street. Not only did the owners of the winery help me to find my relatives (yes! I did find them!) but they have some great wine! They sent me home with several bottles of their finest and it is truly great vino.
I absolutely recommend this hotel. It is everything you would expect from a small Italian village hotel and much, much more.
