“Perfect hub to discover southern Sicily”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

Great spot with charming beach, warm hospitality, great food, pool and SPA. Morning and evening breeze make breakfast and aperitifs time a really relaxing ritual. Delightful and competent concierge with great restaurant and tour recommendations.

Room Tip: Go to the Fattoria dependance ....worth the price

Nice little resort, overlooking the old castle, great little beach, from the gardener to the
director - everbody tries to make your stay unforgettable. Best breafkast choice we had on
our several trips though Sicilia. The Restaurant offers very good Italian cuisine. For the 2nd
evening we pre-ordered a typcial sicilian menue. What we got was just outstanding.
Rooms are big or very big. Furnished an equipped in a very modern and trendy style,
as the hotel lobby and bar are. There are several little Patios in the garden where you can
enjoy a coffe in the morning or a glass wine in the evening. Chiristina and her team of the Wellness and Spa center offer latest treatments. Very porfessional these ladies. Also in the
Wellness chilling is everything.

I did not care much for the area around butera but this hotel was very nice. they tried very hard to be the best they could be. live music at dinner, clean and beautiful rooms, bar at the pool, appetizers at the bar during cocktail hour.

i didn't care much for having to use a voucher to get a towel at the beach or pool but they must have to do it for some reason. the internet service is poor but that is pretty common. i thought the food could be better but eating at the restaurant outside with live music and a view of the castle was relaxing and very nice. They were also great to our 15 month old.
i would highly recommend this hotel if you are staying in the butera area.

Great relaxing atmosphere, nice pool and beach, very private. Gated property, large gate
even to enter with a car. Nice views and view of castle. Staff very nice and polite. Rooms are very nice and modern. Everything clean and large property. A better choice than the crowded Argigento hotels. Only about 45 minutes from Valley of Temples and
Agrigento. Not much choice for dining other than the resort, but is a nice restaurant.
A very nice secluded resort/hotel. We only stayed one night while passing through, but
would have loved to stay another night just to have relaxed and enjoyed the property.

I really enjoyed staying at the Falconara. The location is beautiful near beach and a magnificent view on the Castle. Not only does one has an opportunity to relax on this beach - as well as a (large) swimming pool. On top of all, the restaurant is outstanding, with a nice touch of local Sicilian food specialities and extremely well selected local wines.
Alltogether a pleasant and agreable stay, with pretty helpful and hospitable staff.
Car needed for visits of the surrounded places.

just few words to say thank you to the staff of this wonderful hotel..i stayed alone for one week, to relax and think about my life...it was a wonderful stay..nice beach, great food, but the great thing was the staff especially the tall night porter with his impressive capacity to feel the guest as at home...professional and hardworker and the same is for the other guy, the nice and young valet with his care and attention towards me.. The castle is fantastic and very suggestive. Lots of things to do nearby: wine and food tasting, guided tours in caltagirone, piazza armerina, agrigento. the hotei is in a central position.
So I advice this hotelto my friends!!

Driving west along the south coast of Sicily, one passes through the charmless and utilitarian streets of Gela, but great if you want to fill your car with fruit and vegetables for Euro 20.00! Then through an ocean of plastic polytunnels that allows Sicilian farmers to have so much early produce and finally round a bend in the road you spy the Castello Falconara perched on it's rock overlooking the sea and drive up to the huge electrically operated gates of the Falconara Charming House & Resort. One's initial impression of the entrance of the main building is of a corporate headquarters, rather than a 'Charming House' but this impression is soon dispelled by the view through the reception area to the landscaped gardens and view of the Castello — not open to guests or the public but a dramatic presence day and night and the friendly welcome of the reception staff.

Our luggage quickly arrived at the door to our room, a lofty first floor sea view room with balcony in the Club House, four poster bed, flat screen tv, mini-bar and generous bathroom. The more expensive rooms are in the 'Fattoria' overlooking the beach with exposed patios, great in good weather, less so in the thunderstorm we experienced for one night of our stay in mid-May.

The Club House main building and pool are located quite near the main road, consequently suffering from some background traffic noise. The beach area comprises two levels of fine sand with numerous loungers and parasols, plenty for everyone when we were there, plus a lifeguard in attendance all day.

We had arranged our 4 night stay on a half-board basis: buffet breakfasts were copious and to a good standard and the preferred dinner offer was an amazing 7 course tasting menu, that at Euro 30.00 was a great bargain, although a-la-carte was also available. Presentation was in a contemporary style and the sommelier's suggestions for wine each evening introduced us to the excellence of modern Sicilian wines and at very fair prices.

The Falconara Charming House & Resort is quite remote, although there are other resorts along the coast towards Licata, the nearest town. We visited Licata which has a number of baroque buildings in it's old town, a big fishing port and a halo of modern development which is initially off-putting. Local people were very friendly, the staff at the tourist information point in the cloisters of the San Francesco church were very helpful and we had a pleasant drink and free nibbles at the Cafe St Angelo, inset into the fabric of the St Angelo church.

The Falconara Charming House & Resort makes for a relaxing short break if the weather is good and great value at this time of year. Staff were charming and the food excellent.

Room Tip: Try for upper sea view clubhouse rooms.
