Had booked this expecting to be able to enjoy a relaxed meal in the restaurant but was disappointed to find that the restaurant had closed 2 weeks before our arrival. We ended up having to go into the village of Marinella di Selinunte to eat, which was precisely what we didn't want to do!
We stayed one night to see the Selinunte site and we were well advised by the reception staff about the best way to go about the visit, they provided us with maps and a volunteer took us to the ticket office (although this was completely unnecessary!)
The room was good, spacious and with a good sized and well equipped bathroom but with slightly temperemental air conditioning.
Breakfast was very good, with high quality bread and cakes, fresh figs and other fruit, home made jam and marmalade and many other delights.
I don't think they can justify the 130 Euros price for B&B, it was by far the most expensive place we stayed and didn't merit that rate.
