“If you go to Agrigento, you MUST stay at Oceano & Mare!”
Reviewed 30 September 2011

We can't say enough good things about this B&B! We loved the location which is just 8 minutes away from the Valley of the Temples. Salvatore was a great host, very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very nice and super clean. The view was spectacular. We liked that there is no set time for breakfast, it is a help yourself with snacks and drinks available at all hours. You will not go wrong! There are many signs directing you to his place. Also, there is free parking just steps from the door. AND Salvo speaks English AND Spanish!

You will LOVE it here!

After wandering about street of Agrigento we have found Oceano & Mare and his likeable owner Salvatore has accomodated us in apartment. This apartment was fantastic! Very nice, comfortable, clean, spacious and elegant furnished. There was everything what you need in flat - equipped kitchen, refrigerator, coffee machine, TV and also 2 PC! Every morning we had breakfast on our balcony with view of the sea. Sandy beach is about 5-10 minutes far by walking. Famous Valle dei Templi is not far by car - and way from this place there is quite easy. Salvatore (the owner) is very friendly, kind and willing man - he speaks very good english.
We were travelling around Sicily, living in many B&B but Oceano & Mare belongs to the best one. It is a pity we couldn´t stay more days. But if we go to Agrigento again, we would like definitely to stay in Oceano & Mare.
Salvatote, grazie mille!!!

To say we were happy with our accommodation would be an understatement. The B&B was beautiful. We had a two bedroom apartment, our view was stunning. Overlooking the "Med". Salvo who spoke english very well was an excellent host and very helpfull with any enquiries we had. Our rooms were beautifully decorated and there was also a PC with full internet facility available to us in our apartment. Our breakfast basket and fridge were fully stocked every day. :) Can't sing this B&B's praises enough. Thank you Salvo for everything.

Oceano & Mare is perfectly located only a few hundred meters from the beautiful seas of San Leone. There is a lovely view from the hotel and a short trail (wear shoes!) that leads down to an even lovelier beach. We stayed only one night but left wishing we had more time to spend both in Sicily and San Leone.

The place itself is new and clean. It's simple but more than enough for the price, which was much less than any of the hotels we researched in other beach towns (Mondello, Cefalu). We were allowed to leave our car even after check-out while we visited the beach and also allowed to use the hose for an outdoor shower as well.

The owner, Salvatore, who lives on the third floor is helpful and speaks good English. Although he had only one recommendation for food, Trattoria Caico, it turned out to be the best food we had during our trip.

While the guests obviously change, everybody we met was friendly; there is certainly nothing in the environment to make anybody temperamental. We lucked out and even got to indulge in a little bit of one family's homemade wine to put a cherry on top of an already excellent experience.

The only downside might be finding the place. It's simple enough if you have GPS (we did) but must be a nightmare without. The only reason I only gave it a 4/5 is that we spent so little time there.

I stayed here for a week. I found the B&B to be a very central to the beach and Agrigento centre. The place is very clean and the hosts are very friendly and helpful. Salvatore speaks very good English, which is a bonus! The view of the beach/sea from is also mesmerising. I shall definitely be staying on my next trip. >: )

The Oceano & Mare is located a few miles from the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento. It overlooks the sea from a distance, but has no direct access to the beach. It is at the very end of a fairly long dead end drive, culminating in a steep grade road to the B&B. The on site car parking is limited inside a small, gated compound. The room was adequate, but cramped for 2 travelers with luggage, etc. The breakfast was Spartan, offering prepackaged cornetti, juice boxes, do-it-yourself coffee and dry cereals all provided self service in the confines of an extremely small mini-kitchen, comprised of 5 bar stools along a counter top. The space is so small that it is nearly impossible to pass other users of the space. While we were told that we could charge our bill on Visa/MC, their internet connections were out when we arrived, & upon departure, there was no one there knowledgeable enough to execute the charge, so we were stuck having to pay cash. (We found that many Sicilian businesses had myriad reasons why they couldn't accept credit cards during our 3 weeks on the island.) We were awaken early on our last day by pounding on the room door...workmen needing to bring their trucks into the B&B necessitated our vehicle being moved. All-in-all, a less than stellar B&B, & the low point of our overnight stays in Sicily.
Area recommendations
We would recommend staying in Agrigento or on the beach front in San Leone rather than where we were

Pro: great price, very close to Valley of Temples, not in the city; includes parking; very clean; AND Salvatore speaks English and helped me fix my GPS by doing a download for me from the Garmin website.
Con: Difficult to find, but if you call Salvatore he will meet you part way. Breakfast is minimal, but acceptable considering the price of a night's stay.
