“A Dockworkers Duty”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

We visited Licata on a Motorcycle trip around Sicily. The Hotel was located Port side and quite un memorable.

Rooms were worn but comfortable, the beer in the bar was only just cool, and the streetnoise on the weekend was more than noticeable.

If Its just a bed on budget, this may suit as an overnighter. More then 2 nights may be problematic.

Room Tip: Choose a room on a lower floor away from the roof top bar.

We stayed here in April 2007 as my Grandmother is originally from Licata. We were a group of about 10, after going to Rome and Florence we stayed here and it was great. Yes it was a basic hotel, but super clean and relaxing and a great price. In the morning breakfast was wonderful as were the chocolate croissants!

It was great meeting my extended family and getting to see where my Grandma grew up, her family store, and where she was baptized!

Hotel is located in the harbour very close to the start of Vittorio Emanuale which is usually the main street for shops and restaurants in Italy which is the case in Licata also. Breakfast was basic no thrills just boring. Room was large but i found the bed very hard i usually like hard beds but this one was more like sleeping on the floor. Receptionist in the evening 20.00 could not a single word of English which is a little bit frustrating since i do not know Italian... There is a computer in the reception for guest to use for free which is great!

Value for money but not the place you take your girlfriend to this is a a basic hotel just for sleeping in no entertainment in staying in this hotel.

  • Liked — Internet access in reception for free, location and size of room
  • Disliked — boring, check-in staff did not know a single word of English, boring breakfast

Hotel Al Faro - Faro means lighthouse - is located in front of the port. Basic hotel, and don't expect many choices in Licata, delivering a nice, 'familiar' service.

Rooms are not small at all, and clean, equipped with satellite and pay per view tv; the biggest issue was given by the thin walls, simply not filtering anything: I had the chance to listen a 2 hours phone conversation coming from the room next to mine.

Other notes: basic continental breakfast (horrible orange juice, and Sicily is famous for the best ones in the world) and free parking available in front of the entrance.

The family owns the restaurant as well - same name - based on the ground floor: noisy, and the receptionist paid excuses in advance cause of the big party (I stay for the women's day) expected that nite.

I wouldn't recommende this place for a week holiday, but for a nite the price is really reasonable: 55 euros for a double.
Probably different prices in summer: cheap deal, though.
