“Very médium”
Reviewed July 24, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

Nice spot very windy. Internet only in the breakfast area, drill working during the (low cost & light) breakfast.
Everything is to be paid. No cleaning the sunday. We had to ask new towels new shower gel..
Owner very noisy with his friends, disdainful with his clients.
Beautiful bathroom.
Horrible Mattress.

“Great luxury B&B experience”
Reviewed August 7, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We had a great three day stay at Melus Maris. Carmelo is a warm host who makes you feel very welcome and has lots of practical tips. The rooms are large and comfortable. The house and pool have a nice feel to them and are great to relax by. Carmelo serves a nice breakfast with local products. Melus Maris is close to both Plemmirio natural reserve, beaches and the city of Siracuse. We can really recommend it!

“Calm and comfortable, and very helpful host”
Reviewed July 16, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Melus Maris is located 15 min by car from Syracusa, which is very convenient. It is a very nice place with comfortable new rooms, each with table and chairs outside. You can use the common kitchen if you need. There is a nice tropical garden and a pool in this quiet area. The host is super helpful, he has a lot of good advice to give to visit the area. We would definitely recommend this place if you go to Syracusa.

“A calm oasis in southern Siciiy within a stone's throw of Syracuse”
Reviewed June 8, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Carmelo and Rosella were wonderful hosts - friendly and welcoming. Melus Marius is a small suite of apartments at the very end of the road on the Plemmirio peninsula, just south of Syracuse. It turned out to be the perfect base for a family with two small children, keen to explore southern Sicily. There are beaches nearby, but Melus Marius also has its own small pool. The house is surrounded by a well tended garden with fruit trees and flowers. We ate outdoors in the courtyard with its lemon trees, overlooking the pool. The breakfasts - coffee, filled croissants, fruit and yoghurt - were simple and delicious. Guests can also prepare their own meals in the outdoor kitchen off the courtyard. The bedrooms were nicely spacious, with elegant bathrooms.

“Very high class accommodation in tranquil, natural surroundings with the utmost care being taken by the owner.”
Reviewed May 22, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Carmelo, the owner, has fully achieved his aim to make the bed (large and comfortable), the breakfast (delicious) and the shower (great) of the highest quality and he has achieved far more besides. The area around Melus Maris is a protected area and therefore has little or no new developments. The peace is, apart from birdsong, largely unbroken, the air is unpolluted and there is a fairly wide range of restaurants within a short car ride. A good local grocery with friendly service and great provisions for picnics is not far. Carmelo is extremely willing to make recommendations for restaurants and sightseeing and we found his judgement to be unerring. His English is excellent and he made himself available through texting even when we or he were away from Melus Maris. His lovely helper, Rosella, was a delight and equally willing to do all possible to make our stay wonderful.

“Peaceful place for lovers and families!”
Reviewed May 8, 2015 for a stay in September 2014

The whole unit is totally new (during our stay, there was some work in progress mainly in the outside area...garden and pool)
Bedrooms are big, silent and equipped with very comfortable mattresses
The bathroom was big too (double shower plates), very italian design with many local materials.

We loved waking up with silence all around...Melus Maris is an ideal place for who wants to relax, have healthy breakfasts and enjoy the nature!

An amazing lighthouse is near by Melus Maris (5 minutes away) and is on top of a high rock: from there you can really live the nature, enjoy the view and breath the sea! fantastic!

The owner is tremendously open and available to support you on every request you may have during your vacation: he perfectly knows the city and the coast so he may drive you all around to let you enjoy the beauty of Syracuse.

We will come back for sure very soon! Thanks Carmelo for your hospitality!
