Reviewed 3 January 2013

We stayed for three nights from Sunday 30th dec 2012 to Wednesday 2nd January 2013. What a start to the New Year! We stayed in suite called Pupi which consisted of a combined sitting/dining area with a large LCD TV, other two bedrooms and shower room all beautifully laid out and equipped. Both bedrooms had a lovely view of Ispica and the nearby beaches. Breakfast was continental type, but more than enough, with freshly squeezed Sicilian oranges, coffee, bread, local jams etc. We were very much pampered by the attention of all staff especially Laura and Rossana and the owners Cesare and Carmen were at hand around the clock two. Ispica in 2013 is a small town which caters very good as it is now well served with pizzerias, restaurant, banks and coffee shops. Going out very late in the evening is a pleasure and it is very safe to walk around during unearthly hours too. Looking forward to return back very soon!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with sea views!

A (should be) five star hotel which is really unique. The host is a very dedicated and friendly lady, Laura. Every room is actually a large suite and you will feel like a prince/princess. This historic building in the city centre has so much atmosphere. The ceiling are beautifulll decorated and the rooms have acces to large terraces with great views. Great value for money!
The breakfast is nice, fresh, local and original.

Ispica is an amazing little town with a lot of well kept old historic building and small cosy streets. Please visit restaurant Il Mercato in the old market hall, the owners will spoil you for sure.

We stayed for a couple of day in august while visiting eastern side of sicily. Very beautiful 19th century building, very close to the wonderful cathedral, clean and well furnished. The palace has been bought from a couple from northern italians sons of immigrant from ispica with no experience in tourism management. This was a bit evident by very standard (hotel based) breakfast. In such a nice and typical building you would expect to taste sicily also throughout the breakfast (this think is happened in all the other 6 places where we stay): no trace of local products, but industrial nutella and marmelades together with very unflauvoured brioches.
Last but not least, We were awake at 7am because of big noises made by workers who where hammering on fornitures in the next room. So for a good stay forget sicilian breakfasts and ask not to stay in rooms ULIVI (no windows except from the door).

We thoroughy enjoyed our few days in this roomy, elegant and atmospheric place. The charming women who run it were a delight to meet and made us feel very welcome and comfortable. Breakfasts were great and beautifully presented. We especially appeciated the DSL Internet connection - so much more reliable than w-fi!
Since our visit coincided with a special festival, we had a ringside seat from the terrace for the band and the procession. Altogether a memorable experience.

Room Tip: Make sure use of kitchenette is included in price.

Ispica is a small town which can be the ideal base from where to explore the beautiful Val di Noto area, Palazzo Gambuzza, where we stayed last week exceed all our expectations.
It is a beautiful sicilian palazzo with wide and confy rooms with all amenities, set in the centre of Ispica yet very quiet. The copious breakfast they serve in the morning is something to always remember but most of all we were charmed by the true Sicilian hospitality catered by the sweet ladies Laura and Rosanna and the two other ladies serving breakfast.
We felt pampered at all times and also felt so confortable in the elegant sicilian style room that we hardly wanted to go out. I recommend this small luxury hotel to all those people that want to stay quiet and rest after a full day of sightseeing the near towns of Noto, Modica, Scicli, Ibla and the several 10 minutes drive beaches. GRAZIE !!!
A final tip: no great restaurants in the area but the best pizza you can have in Sicily at the close pizzeria LA GIARA.

We stayed at Palazzo Gambuzza for 10 days and had such a perfect time!
The owners are very nice people and the Palazzo is beautifully reconstructed building right beside gorgeous but quiet square with church which we could observe from the huge terrace. The courtyard is peaceful oasis. For going to the beech car or scooter is necessary. Cesare borrowed us the scooter what was so nice of him, than it was very nice traveling to the beech and nearby Pozzallo. The only thing I would change for the room Fiori was that last two nights there were some guests at room Angeli and we could hear the shower and the flushing of the toilet, specially in the night it was quite disturbing. Everything else was just perfect. I would definitely come back!
