Villa Favorita

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 July 2014

If you are looking for a hotel "out of the ordinary", this is the place to be. You will enjoy outstanding service within a unique environment. Hosting numerous weddings is undoubtedly a token of appreciation by many people. Breakfast and lunch in the garden area is great, surrounded by the bungalows and swimming pool. Villa Favorita is indeed a wonderful place to spend your holidays and visit western Sicily.

The hotel is very beautiful and the gardens are gorgeous. However they continuosly host functions so the spaces are not always available to hotel guests. We stayed both in the central building and in the bungalows and we definitely preferred the building, since the bungalows have more of a camping feelings and their setting is a bit odd. Nice swimming pool, very good breakfast. Staff and their service is very good too. This hotel is a very good location for visiting Marsala, Erice, Trapani and around. Need a car, of course.

We booked Villa Favorita for a long weekend based on the positive reviews, relatively close proximity to the Trapani airport for our late arriving flight, and competitive rates for a unique concrete bungalow room.

While the overall hotel is very nice, the bungalow rooms are a bit more like camping than a normal hotel. After sealing the room during the day, the room does get a bit musty. After airing out the room for a while by opening the windows and doors- the room was fine. The bungalows are divided into two halves - one large enough for two single beds, a small desk, heater, and a bathroom. The other half is furnished with a wardrobe, sofa, dining table, and optional roll-away bed. The biggest downside of the bungalow for us was the shower - it was definitely a bit claustrophobic. Also, with the shower downspout centered in the stall it was impossible to get in and comfortable without getting the floor wet and/or getting a shockingly hot (or cold) start.

As others have said, Villa Favorita seems to be very popular for weddings on the weekend. During our stay there were two Sunday weddings and one Saturday wedding. In May, we weren't at all bothered by noise at night. The car park does seem to fill up after 7pm, however. Since we were dining in Marsala and arriving back late, we had to go to the office to have the hotel personnel open up a special lot that was chained off to non-residents.

Room Tip: If you don't mind being a bit more like camping than most hotels - the bungalow rooms are a good...

We stayed in bungalows on 9/4/2014. The bungalows are nicely furnished and situated in the hotel gardens with large private parking area. The stuff are warm and friendly. Breakfast was generous. I look forward for an other stay at Villa Favorita.

Myself and three other colleagues stayed in the garden pods for two nights. Extremely comfortable and gave us each our own privacy. I cannot praise Giovanna and the rest of the staff highly enough. Breakfast was served in the beautiful old courtyard or in the restaurant with everything beautifully fresh and well presented. We were there on business and would not hesitate to return again for business or pleasure. Tripped on a garden step but that was the wine consumed that caused it. The hotel is set within a very grand building and the gardens are immaculate. Obviously very popular with weddings but they easily have the space to accomodate them Great base for travelling around Marsala region

Room Tip: The garden pods are better than many hotel rooms i have stayed in

This place is an old Baglio nicely converted into a resort. the staff are very dedicated and the level of service is excellent. Rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast is amazing. Location is close to Marsala centre and salt pans. Easily accessible by car.

Stayed here for 12 days with my mother, all the advantages started from surrounding ending services. Stuff very helpful and friendly, each morning started with a different drawing in an excellent cup of cappucino. I wish to come back here in spring, great choice.

If you are looking for a great holiday, we highly recommend visit Villa Favorita.

Greatest gratitude to Giuseppe Grimaudo and Enzo.
