“Sikelika Shines”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

On a score of 1 to 10 I would be in the high 20's and still counting...... Spotless, spacious and simply superb! The Gilotta family could not have been more helpful and accomodating and in no way intrusive. Would we go back?................ in a heartbeat!
This Residence is small but placial. It has the feel of a chic boutique hotel. It is a really special place. ................Am I counting the days, You can bet on it!

Reviewed 13 October 2012

What can we say? This is a wonderful new apartment complex with great service and very kind owners. We were there the first week of October 2012 and originally the swimmingpool would be closed. But when we arrived the temperatures were still so high (certainly for us Dutch people) that we were pleasantly surprised that the pool was still open during our stay: we needed it to cool down! We rented a 2-bedroom apartment which had all we could want. Especially the bedrooms and (2) bathrooms were very good. Nice spacious rooms, very well cleaned and good boxspring beds. The open kitchen/sittingroom was comfortable as well. We didn't have many possibilities to sit outside on the balcony because the sun set at about 19.30 and right after that the mosquitos started their attacks. They didn't seem to bother the Italian people but we were victims to many bites. That is when we escaped indoors where the airco kept the temperatures nice and cool.
There are many things to be visited during your stay at Sikelika, but we especially liked the nearby Hyblean hills. Also of course the cities of Noto (try casata icecream) and Ragusa ibla (try moscati icecream at Gelati Divini). Only 2 1/2 hours drive away along a comfortable road you will find Taormina and the Etna. A tour that can easily be done in one day. The internet will inform you about what else is there to see and do in this beautiful corner of Sicily. Scoglitti is a nice place with some very good bakers and restaurants as well as a small supermarket. For larger supermarkets however you'll have to go to Vittoria, about 25 minutes away. The coastline is beautiful, with many white sandy beaches. The surrounding countryside is covered in plastic greenhouses to which you will soon get used. We do advise to have a car to make traveling around easier. The complex is situated directly along the road so it is easily reached and in spite of it's proximity to the road we found that it was still nice and quiet. All in all we found our stay wonderfully relaxing and made extra special by the kind owners. They really are, as already written in previous reviews, always ready to help with any questions or small problems you can have while never being intrusive or in the way. If we ever get the chance to get back to Sicily we will surely come back to Sikelika!

Reviewed 22 June 2011

We stayed in Sikelika the first two weeks of June 2011. We normally stay at the better b&b's and wanted to try a apartment to have more "freedom" on our holiday.
Honestly, we where a little bit afraid if this kind of holiday would give us the comfort we are used to.
Sikelika did deliver and exceeded our expectations.
The apartment was spotless and equipped with everything we find important. Free WIFI and ADSL in the apartment and in the garden, air conditioning, nice comfortable beds and those small little extras that make you smile (a Italian coffee maker, fresh fruits and biscuits).
Garden and swimming pool are kept clean to a standard that many b&b's should take as a example.
You can ask the owners, Mr and Mrs Gilotta, almost anything you can think of. They have there own apartment on the ground floor. They understand the skill to be available but they never intrude.
A small example of the quality offered. You have your parking space in a gated area under a carport, so your car is in the shade all day.
Reservation and billing are handled professionally.
Sikelika is in a less touristic are of Sicily, but in 1 or 1,5 hour drive your in the center of the major baroque and historic cities of the south-east of Sicily.
You definitely need a car!
Would we return to Sikelika? YES
Would we rent a apartment on a next trip? We believe it will not be easy to find this kind of quality and service in holiday rentals at a reasonable price.
