“Not again”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2013

Nice place regarding the surrounding BUT we were extremly disappointed by the rute and not-existing level of service which has nothing to do with a 4 star rating.A free shuttle to the harbour of Favignana is offered but was not available when it was needed, not appologies or help to find an alternative by the rude reception lady. Apart from that we got a room with a "nice" view on the rubbish bins of the hotel.The room was dark and clummy and even though we were the only guests in the Hotel at that time we did not get offered another room.In addition the restaurant is complety over-prized and compared to sicilian standard really low quality food. We will definately not come back again as there seem to be much nicer places on this lovely Island.

Spent 3 days here. Relaxing, quiet island that can be visited by bike. Hotel is close to pretty beach and coast. The location inside the quarry is attractive and the hotel has been well designed. Rooms are good with great bathrooms. The pool is clean with a big grassy area to enjoy the sun.
The food here is a particular highlight including many excellent fish and seafood dishes.
We parked our hire car in Trapani and came over by boat. It's worth finding the free car park in Trapani as parking on the street is hectic.

We spent several days in this special place, far from the stress of every day life. It is situated inside what was once a quarry, and the original rock faces lined by the marks made by the saws that cut into the rock are clearly visibile; rock that changes hue, from pale beige to pink, depending on the positions of the wall-like rocks thenselves and the sun. It is below the level of the ground, creating an incredibile effect we had never seen before. We thoroughly recommend it!

Throughly enjoyed the 3 days there, in fact, so much that we spent much of our time on Favignana just enjoying the hotel, the grounds and the pool. Although there was an initial hiccup with the reservation, due to booking almost a year in advance, the staff handled the issue immediately and were very helpful. Rooms modern and comfortable. Ended up eating all 3 nights at the hotel because we liked the atmosphere of the quarry so much. Food good, prices fair, and wait staff nice. Hotel arranged a day boat tour for us which turned out to be with one of the island's local legends from the tuna factory heydays. An adventure not like any other, and one of the highlights of our 5 weeks in Italy. Hotel also arranges for bikes or scooters, and the hotel picked us up at harbor when we arrived and took us back to harbor when we left. We would love to return to Favignana and the Cave Bianchi.

Overall a great experience. Very good restaurant, extremely helpful and nice staff. The setting is pretty but a bit bizarre-you are situated in a very large quarry/hole, so no views of the beautiful ocean or mountains of Favignana. Overall, I would still recommend it, as there are very few options on Favignana.

Like some reviewers have said, this hotel is not simple to get to. I must applaud the architect who has created a very unusual space that is unique. It is very quiet and visually exciting. We phoned some days in advance from Trapani, credit card in hand to confirm our booking to be told, ' we await you on Friday, no need to call out your credit card number.....' I thought how friendly. On arrival no room available. We were not offered a courtesy bus back to the ferry but they did call us a taxi. Our only bad experience in Sicily. A shame the brilliance of the architect is only reflected in the magnificent structure.
