We chose this resort because we wanted to relax and do not much. Marsa Sicla seemed to offer this.
Our apartment was spacious and clean, with lots of patios / balconies. The kitchenette is small but reasonable (no kettle, just a percolator). The resort facilities are good, the large pool is beautiful and tempting while the nearby beach is very clean, with the shuttle service from the resort more than adequate. We played tennis on the very acceptable court.
The restaurant is good too, although the lunch menu offers more choice than the evening one. The pizzas are delicious and huge! Staff in restaurant, bar and reception are friendly and helpful. English isn't widely spoken but people know enough to enable you to get by.
One tiny word of warning, the resort really is in the middle of nowhere. The nearest town Sampieri, is tiny with only one ATM which was broken when we were there. The next town, Marina de Modica, also boasts just the one ATM and when we visited in October, the place was pretty much shut for the season. The walk from Marina de Modica back to Marsa Sicla is along a beautiful sweeping beach. Although there are mountain bikes at the resort, you really need a car if you want to explore. The mini-market on the site stocks enough for a week, but bear in mind, it closes at lunchtime until late afternoon (as do most things in Sicily).
As mentioned, we were there in October, when it was hot enough to just wear a bikini on the beach or by the pool. It also means it was hot enough for mosquitos, I would advise taking all the usual precautions!
