Having just returned from a lovely holiday in western sicily which started with 2 nights at the Villa Favorita, marsala. I have to say the hotel rooms are simply lovely and the pool too, breakfast in the garden just perfect.....BUT the hotel is seriously let down by the food in the restaurant (and there is no alternative locally so you have to go into town) It reminded me of school diners or food you would expect in an old folks home! Everything looked grey and overcooked.
I have read other reviews for this hotel and some recommended the restaurant (??) BUT I think the problem could be as mentioned in other reviews the fact that this hotel seems to host a wedding or function (even two on our second night) so all the catering staff are busy dealing with this.Their functions do look stunning, and maybe the food in restaurant can be.
To be honest I felt we, as hotel guests, were invisible to staff and the weddings are all they were interested in.Having said that I would recommend staying here (it is lovely, real comfy bed, lovely terrace overlooking main courtyard) but just eat out in the evening and be prepared to be ignored.
Marsala itself is not great for restaurants either, we found the best to be on the coast road by the archeological site Baglio dei Mille not that easy to find as it's at the end of the one way stretch and traffic in Marsala is awful.
