“Could not ask for more...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

The hotel is first and foremost very clean and well-presented, a decent price and the staff are ever-so-friendly and accomodating and spoke fantastic English. During breakfast they remembered our drinks orders after only two days and the breakfasts were fresh and fantastic - better than some of the restaurants we visited which were on the whole fantastic.

We were a little anxious about staying in the "Depandance" Annexe and felt like we'd miss out on the views over the Marina, however this turned out to be a blessing as the annexe opens up onto one of the main streets in Castellemare (whilst remaining quiet) and is actually better located than the marina front where there is less to do. Being located in the old section of town showed us more restaurants and in particular the Cantina Avrelia - which is a fantastic place to have a drink and a snack.

I'd recommend this Hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Go for the Annexe

Booked this hotel after reading reviews on TA, and to be "near" airport for flight home. We checked in after 5pm which was straight forward enough. Our room was on the ground floor and dark, with no view of anything except an inner wall of the hotel. The room was cramped and had an en suite disabled bathroom. Despite being told there was wifi available we could not pick up anything in our room on an ipad. To get any wifi reception we had to go to the reception / dining area and had to sit there while a cleaner, complete with bucket and mop, cleaned the floor around us as other guests were checking in (well after 5pm!) I always though that hotels cleaned in the morning when guests had left for the day? Breakfast was a simple affair with a small buffet. Glad it was only one night.

scarvagghiu, Proprietario at Hotel Cala Marina, responded to this review, October 6, 2013
we are sorry for your review. You're right when you say that there was no wi fi connection in your room but there was a failure to the access point (zone 1) already repaired after a few days and caused by a thunderstorm. the access point has been dead for 5 days, the time to buy a new one and install it. However, you have sailed smoothly into the hall.

Regarding the cleaning, we are very careful cleaning and we clean the common areas even several times a day. I do not think it's a defect. Indeed, the cleaning for us is the first thing.

We enjoyed a very pleasant few days recently in Hotel Cala Marina. It is a lovely hotel in a very interesting port town with lots of nice restaurants and things to do. The hotel is small but comfortable. Located on the waterside, it is in a very picturesque setting.

Very nice hotel and staff throughout. Nice welcome and whenever we needed any help and assitance.

Adequate rooms, very good breakfast with fresh coffee provided by waitresses and nice selection. Perfect spot for spending time in the bars and restaurants in the marina and as we were at the back of the hotel there was no noise at night as the marina can get quite busy at night and with music, etc.

Relatively inexpensive hotel in the centre of Castellamare, new decor and outstanding customer care. The breakfast is very good with a lot of local delicacies. Highly recommended for both families as well as couples. The area near the hotel is the centre of the small village which at night is full of restaurants and other entertainment

We stayed in a superior room, with partial " sea" view , but the beach was so dirty, the room very small, and noisy in the evening. The windows were on the side of the hotel towards some garbage cans from the adjacent empty lot.

The staff not very helpful or friendly, the breakfast was ok but nothing outstanding. Overall we felt that we overpaid for our 4 days staying at the hotel, and wanted to leave early with 1 one but had plane booked already.

You can I guess easily find better place to stay in Sicily both in terms of location and accommodation. But I guess we were not very lucky with our choice.
