Let's start with the good stuff!
We can't fault the room. It was clean. Excellent bathroom with amazing shower. The location is strange. It used to be a military site so it has a sort of ominous feeling. Seagulls are constantly squawking and circling overhead. However if you like this kind of bucolic isolation then perhaps it's perfect. We didn't mind the solitude but we also rented a scooter so we were able to get around the island easily. Without a scooter or car you are stuck.
Ok here's the thing. We paid 120 euros a night and stayed 3 nights. Guess what?
No bed making!!! That's right 120 euros doesn't get your bed made.
It doesn't get you fresh towels.
Do you know why? Because this is not a hotel. It's a residence!!
That was the sorry excuse repeated over and over by the staff even though there was a sheet in the room that stated that your room was to be cleaned every day. When we showed this sheet to the woman she said that it was an old piece of paper and the rules had changed though of course this was not mentioned to us.
When we asked her if you paid 120 euros and were on holiday would you like to have to make your own bed she had no answer.
The bigger point ladies and gentleman is that if you are on holiday do you really want to be having this conversation? The woman held her ground and defended the fact that making the bed wasn't included. I ask anyone who's traveled the world during their lifetime ...have you ever paid 120 euros a night and stayed for 3 days and not had your bed made????
Obviously, I don't think anyone who travels pays 120 euros and expects to use the same towel for 3 days...by the way the towels aren't terrycloth they are that waffle type that you sometimes find on bathrobes...very flimsy indeed!
We were asked to pay upfront for all 3 nights when we got there. We obliged. That was it! They were done with us.
for over 360 euros (there was tax on top of that)
you get nothing. That's it!
There is no restaurant, no breakfast, no pool, no one at the property at night except a security guard who sat in his car.
Safety wasn't an issue. Favignana is extremely safe. The point is again...why are you paying 120 euros to be in an isolated part of the island with no amenities?
There are definitely places in Favignana, Sicily, and Italy where you pay 120 euros or less and get all the things that Nido Del Pellegrino doesn't have.
We were fair in stating that the room was fine. But for 120 euros a night that's not enough!
Stay at the the Nido Del Pellegrino if you speak Italian (we do but they don't speak English and you'll not be able to communicate otherwise) and if you liking making your own bed.
