“Very cozy and charming hotel near the beach”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

We simply loved our stay at Krimar hotel and we will be going back for sure. Also, excellent choice for families.

Pros:
- location close to the sea (100 meters) and 15 min walk from the nearby city.
- calm, quiet and charming atmosphere. Spacious with a lot of outdoor lounges to hang out.
- staff are extremely friendly and helpful. They go the extra mile to make everyone comfortable.
- ok here's a secret. They have a rooftop where they do massages with a lovely view of the sea.message is affordable and excellent.
- nice restaurant with lovely setting. Live Music on fridays. Service is excellent.
- room is clean. Not fancy but the view is amazing.

Cons:
- breakfast buffet is boring with very limited choices. Lasts only till 9:30.


Stayed August 2013, traveled as a couple

The hotel is located a few minute walk from the beach, but further away from the city area with restaurants. Room was small and walls made of paper. We could hear everything from the neighboring rooms and from the breakfast rooms which was right behind the wall. Breakfast was rather poor since they ran out of everything after first hour.

If you decide to stay in SVC make sure you have a car. For a two night stopover it´s a nice city, but rather bad location for exploring the other surrounding cities (Erice). Better to stay closer to the main roads since the drive to SVC is rather long and slow.

Spent there 4 days and really liked the hotel. It is VERY clean, nice rooms, friendly stuff. It´s quite close to LO ZINGARO, the great nature reserve. You should rent a car cause there´s nothing around, Trapani is 35 km away.

For those a bit confused about the location, Krimar Hotel is not located in Trapani city but 30 minutes drive in a beautiful bay called San Vito Lo Capo. We haven't been to every beach around Europe yet, but I believe that the very long sandy beach of SVLC is one of the better around.
The village are definately based on italian tourists so if you're worried about trying to speak basic italian perhaps it's best staying away. It's partly famous for it's couscous and they do make some good dishes with it, but not worth the trip alone.
Krimar Hotel itself is a typical 3 star hotel. Family run, charming, quite new and with a lovely small garden both the interior and exterior gives value for money.
Our only negative was being given a good long morale talk by the night guard complaining that we made too much noise and should head straight to our room instead of hanging around. If he had been correct I wouldn't mind, but we didn't make much noise. So not a nice thing to experience.
The hotel is 100 meters away from the beach at the far end from the city center so all in all the location were OK. But strange as it may sound there are plenty of hotels closer to the beach, some with sundeck service included, and that was very expensive in San Vito Lo Capo.
Just to give a example, Hotel Capo San Vito (our preffered but fully booked choice) has sundecks included and are smack dab in the middle of the beach. Perhaps a good idea to check that since staying at the beach will be a major activity staying there.
The breakfast was average and rooms clean. We had a balcony.

  • Liked — Nice and clean, quite and with a charming little garden
  • Disliked — Didn't feel completely welcome

I spent 4 days with my wife and one year-old son at the Hotel Krimar. The property is very comfortable, with the owners who are very devoted to maximizing the guests' satisfaction. The property is two minutes' walk from the amazing beach of SVLC, the "Spiaggione".
Room is clean, spacious, with AC and other amenities. There are many options in SVLC, but I would probably go back to the Krimar for location, service, and comfort.
