“Nice small B&B with a good location and friendly service”
Reviewed October 30, 2011

We had a pleasant week in and around Trapani staying at B&B Candia. The location was great: there are plenty of shops, cafés and restaurants near the B&B and on the way to the old city center (a pleasant 10-minute walk). There is a beach next to the B&B. The bus and train stations are very close, which makes day trips easy and convenient even without a car.

The rooms are nicely decorated and very clean. As noted in a previous review, the bathrooms are not ensuite, but they are reserved for exclusive use for each room. Typically for Italy, the breakfast was not huge, but enjoyable with fresh fruit and toast. A couple of times the owner even served us bread with a traditional Sicilian condiment of home-grown tomatos, cheese and olive oil. A previous reviewer had experienced timing issues with breakfast, but they seemed to be fixed as we had very punctual service.

We enjoyed the hospitality and personal service (speaking Italian probably contributed to that). The owner took us around to see the salt mills and the fish market, providing helpful and knowledgeable information about the local history and cuisine.

Chose this B & B as pictures were lovely and indeed when I arrived the rooms were as seen with a nice sea view. The accommodation however a bit of a walk to the old centre but the walk is lovely by the sea. None of the bathrooms were ensuite which was a bit disappointing as I thought it was described as ensuite. My only problem was breakfast, which was lovely with fresh fruit, but the portions were tiny. We were literally given one yoghurt, fruit, a piece of small bread with ham and cheese and some biscuits, and tiny portion of coffee. No other drink was given. On top of that the owner was late to serve our breakfast 3 times out of 7 days we stayed so we sometimes had to just leave without any food to catch our bus. The accommodation itself is lovely but it's worth taking some of the things I mentioned into account to avoid disaapointment.

Dear guest in reference to his comments on TripAdvisor and on the website on which the reservation was made we would have the pleasure of the details:
We thank you for confirming that the picture of the structure are true but you are omitted to indicate that your arrival was offered a bottle of fresh water and cookies welcome;
 
With regard to the indications of the bath, the site on which you made the booking facility to allow the indication of the bathroom or the indication of the shared bathroom. Considering that our structure, as indicated in the description, and contrary to what you have said, subject to each customer a private bathroom for exclusive use, even if outside the room, the indication must necessarily be adopted, considering the exclusive use, that of "bathroom" with the specific description.

With reference to the breakfast we would like to make some info:
1) We ask the customer the type of drink you want, specifying among American coffee or Italian coffee. An espresso coffee, like good Italian, is a short coffee, but our care is to ask the client if it is alright and if you want something different. With reference to the variety of products served for breakfast we have always believed that a drink (tea, coffee or cappuccino), a yogurt, a plate of salad fruit, slice of bread with ham and cheese and sometimes with  tomato, unlike the above, always abundant in size, the availability of packaged confectionery products, butter, marmelade and honey is a good breakfast for our rates even more when we know that many b & b, with a higher rate, sending its customers at “Bar”  to consume a drink and a croissant. To satisfy customers add the fruit juice as an alternative to yogurt. 

With reference to the small delay in serving the breakfast we apologize but we did not believe that the time indicated was interpreted in a fixed considering the availability to customers who reserve.

With reference to the day of departure there was a misunderstanding and we apologize because we are in similar situations by providing hot drinks in the thermos and leave to packaged products.

 We are a small b & b, managed by the owners, with the greatest pleasure to offer hospitality to make your stay pleasant and to allow our guests to bring with them a wonderful memory of our land that we love so much.

Hoping to have you back as guests, we will apply even more careful in asking our clients toexpress during the stay,any needs or different solutions.
