“Never Again!”
Reviewed 29 August 2007

We stayed at the Malva Hotel for 2 nights we were originally booked in for 3 but left early as we had such an awful time. From the description of the hotel with we thought it would be a nice retreat after 2 weeks travelling around Italy.

The room was ok, it was clean and large but there was no DVD player, CD player or tea/coffee maker as advertised. We had a balcony that overlooked the pool and had great views however we couldn’t sit out on it as it had bird mess all over it. Spa facilities were available but highly overpriced.

The girl on reception who spoke English was very sweet and arranged for a taxi to pick us up from the train station but if you do stay there I would highly recommend going by car otherwise there is no escape! As we didn’t have a car we had no choice but to eat in the restaurant, by the second day we just couldn’t face it anymore. The food was absolutely atrocious and I can honestly say I have never had food like it in my life! For example the steak and the chops we ordered were terrible cuts of meat, full of fat and grissel, the potato croquettes were still frozen in the middle, even the croissants they served for breakfast were burnt black. The bottled water was just filled from the tap, not only in the restaurant at the bar too, make sure they bring you out sealed bottle and you’ll taste the difference!

All in all it was a terrible end to an otherwise fantastic time in Italy. I do not recommend this hotel.

Food was superb. Quality is outstanding.
Staff were very friendly and always had a smile.
Hotel was deep in the hills of Sicily - so if you like very out of the way places with no commercial or touristy bits.... this is the place for you.
Room was cleaned every day and we had new clean towels every day also... super. The hotel maids' always had a smile. We could not fault the staff at all - they were great,

Hotel is advertised as having tea/coffee maker in room .. not so ... but staff are always on hand to make tea/coffee in the bar. Also room does not have a hairdryer as advertised.

We will definitely return.

  • Liked — Heart of Sicily. Superb food. True Italy.
  • Disliked — Definitely need a car to get anywhere. Having to travel to see any sights.
