“Felt at home”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Super nice! The staff is very friendly and helpful. Two steps from the beach, the stores and restaurants. Not pricey at all and it includes and umbrella for the beach, you really need it (beaches get busy in summer all around Italy) I would definitely recommend this to a friend.

Great hotel with nice location (close to the beach) and very friendly and helpful host. The hotel is newly renovated and the rooms are very nice with great a/c functionalities. I will recommend this hotel, and would absolutely stay here again when/if I retyrn to San Vito Lo Capo.

For greater objectivity, we make two comments:
1. The hotel:
Pros:- SPOTLESSLY CLEAN;
- big room;
- minibar, safe box, a/c;
- free wi-fi;
- small balcony with partial sea view (but only a seat...);
- confy beds;
- good breakfast;
- private sector on the beach (with umbrella and two sunbeds- even we are three...).
Cons:- many problems in the bathroom (small shower- a nightmare!, extremely slow drain, hot water alternate with cold water, sometimes the stench came from plants);
- breakfast repetitive and boring (good and fresh, though);
- TV- only seven channels (considering the total evening boredom, it would have been the only fun...);
- poor soundproof of the room walls;
- a bit expensive for what the area it offered (7 days, a triple, 1540 euros, booked with 8 months earlier- in comparison, a week before, 7 days, triple, Pensione Svizzera in Taormina, absolutely fabulous, 830 euros...).
2. The staff.
FANTASTIC!!!
One of the few hotels that we felt like home- all were great, with a special mention for Mr. Vito, the owner, and Ms. MARIANGELA, a wonderful person, always smiling, who speak english and who arranged for us a trip to Zingaro and the transfer to Palermo airport. Thank you!
Overall, a beautiful stay, but, for the very demanding tourists, do not believe that this will be the same rating!
San Vito was a big disappointment (boring, nothing to do, nothing to see and, our nightmare, the AWFUL smell of fish couscous, that kept us away from any restaurant.

Lovely little 3 star hotel, extremely friendly, helpful and attentive management by Vito and Maria Angela, they didn't mistake in any of the advice they gave us. Very clean rooms, breakfast had a bit of everything from sweet to savoury ( don't miss the Torta di ricotta!!). They have their own beach club at only 5 min walk from the hotel and bikes to explore the town. We hired a car and the valet parking service was very good (7 Euro/day), whenever we needed it the arrangements to get it back were always very fast and efficient. We felt like being in a 5 stars hotel but with a lot more friendly attention! We would love to go back there!

P.s. We are really really sorry about the flower pot !!!!

Wonderful, simply brilliant! A new concept of how to run a hotel, it was like staying at your friend´s house. Attentive and nice staff, clean rooms, excelent service, not expensive at all, no doubt about where I will stay next time I get back to San Vito Lo Capo.
When at arriving Vito (the owner) took our luggage and brought it up to the room himself, that tells you what type of service you will receive by him and Maria Angela. The hotel is 50 meters far from the beach line, with amazing views of the rock, the beach and the sunset (la tramonta, as Vito says) from the huge terrace upstairs.
Clean rooms, amazing and atentive staff no matter where you need: a couple of wine glasses, towels, or personalised advide on where to go for dinner, what next door village to visit (he does not give you a voucher, he will write down for you himself)... or simply share a joke.
Amazing hotel to stay if you plan to visit north west Sicily (Erice, a must go. And La reserve dello ZIngaro, most beatiful beaches and calas ever) and you have a car. Parking service 24 hours survieallance also available.
I highly recommend to rent a car, and spend a few days in Piccolo mondo, and from there drive around for day trips.

Room Tip: I loved La Tramontana, but i ti snot about the rooms, it is the whole hotel itself

Picolo Mondo is a fantastic, immaculate little hotel only a few yards from the beautiful St Vito beach where the hotel has private sun loungers and umbrellas. Nothing is too much trouble for the wonderful Marieangela who anticipates all of your needs and who's recommendations are faultless. Apart from a couple of small faults (hot water and cereal occasionally running out) this hotel is perfect.

Just arrived back from a week in San Vito Lo Capo with my partner. After spending some time choosing a hotel we both finally agreed on Piccolo Mondo. All I can say is we weren't disappointed. Vito, the owner greeted us with a big smile and continued to introduce us to his family and staff on our arrival making us feel very welcome. They had prepared a map for us with mention of typical Sicilian things to try and also recommended restaurants, cafes, bakeries and pastry shops in San Vito. We tried all the things mentioned, we had the most delicious dinner at Syrah which was one of the mentioned places to eat, we bought lovely olive bread from the bakery and had them on the gorgeous beach, we tried Caldo Fredo (a local treat) which was also recommended to us on our arrival, this was to die for but certainly not for those watching their waist line. The hotel was spotlessly clean, offered delicious fresh breakfasts which included croissants, fruit, yoghurt, cereal and some Pane Cunzato, a stuffed Sicilian bread, again so tasty!!!! Mariangella, a staff member at the hotel spoke brilliant English and was happy to help and advise when we asked! She gave us info and bus routes so we could visit another town, Trapani on one of our days in Sicily. Perfect hotel, perfect area, perfect beach and altogether perfect holiday!!!!! A must stay if visiting San Vito Lo Capo.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the main part of hotel with balcony. Perfect beach and see views!!!
