Hotel Villa Mokarta
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Salemi
Reviewed May 17, 2012

Lovely hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. But found the town didn't have much to see and to go out and eat. We must have been the only foreigners there and it felt intimidating. The restaurant wasn't open in the hotel due to lack of people staying.

Villa Mokarta is well signposted in the town. It has its own car park. Rooms are of good size and well set up. Management and reception were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet is good but on one morning was spoilt by a group of hotel guests who descended on the buffet and demolished just about everything like locusts. The management were extremely apologetic and provided us with individual portions. Would definitely recommend it for staff willingness and its ideal position to tour Western Sicily.

The hotel is located in a quiet area with nice mountain views. To get to the main square of Salemi from the hotel, I would recommend driving as it would take around 15 - 20 minutes to walk up and downhill.

During our stay at the hotel, there are parties going on within the hotel till late in the night. Unfortunately the music was quite loud that we could hear from our room and also noises of guests leaving the hotel in the early hours of the morning. Apart from this, the hotel itself is fine. I guess we just picked the wrong night to stay. The hotel staff were extremely helpful, recommending different sights to visit within Salemi. Note that Salemi is a relatively small town and so be prepared to drive out of town for dinner.

Great hotel. I organised a business seminar in the hotel mokarta for clients interested in the 1 Euro properties in Salemi. All my clients were happy. The conference room downstairs with projector and buffet, followed by a meal in the restaurant, proved succesful. They amazingly also had wireless internet. Highly recomeended for those visiting Salemi. It is a little difficult to find but coming from the motorway A29 head to the centre of Salemi, follow signs for "centro" (keep eyes open for this as you have to take a left when just entering Salemi) arrive at the main roundabout called Piazza LIberta (liitle square in middle of it), and then take the right after the bustop. Head down the hill (2 minutes) take 3 bends and its there on your right. Some of the staff also speak English!!

Outstanding hotel with one of the nicest owners we've ever come across. Sal helped us finding our family roots and spent countless hors helping and translating. Beautiful new hotel in a gorgeous hill town close to Segusta. Can't wait to go back!

We spent 2 nights at this new hotel (opened Summer 2007). The room and the bathroom were beautiful; there was a small balcony with a view over the west central Sicilian countryside that was breathtaking! Very good breakfast and dinner served in their restaurant.
This was our second visit to Salemi; it is a lovely small town with easy access to Segesta, Trápani, Marsala, Scopello and more. The staff at the Mokarta is very helpful and friendly. We highly recommend this hotel!
