I stayed at this hotel over Easter 2013 with my husband and adult daughter. The hotel was clean and comfortable. However we had expected a five star hotel which it certainly was not. Whilst the hotel accommodation was adequate the surrounding area of Marsala was fairly desolate. The photographs show a beautiful marina facing the hotel but it does not show the derelict buildings around the marina and hotel. The breakfast was also adequate but not what you expect from a five star hotel it barely scrapes three stars in my view. We only had dinner one evening. It was awful!! The restaurant was completely dated and the food was terrible. This was not good value for money. The saving grace of the hotel and the surrounding area was the charm of the people hotel staff were delightful and could not have been more helpful. We had planned to stay 7 nights but checked out early incurring the charge of the whole booking. If traveling in this area worth one night stay max two, as long as you are aware it is not five star as billed. It is worth experiencing the lovely people of Marsala. Also eat in the buccaneri a restaurant easily located from the hotel which is excellent.
