We stayed in May 2014 in suite 108. The room was amazing with hot tub out on the large terrace. The decor and general appearance of the hotel was outstanding! As soon as we arrived we felt relaxed and at home. We had 2 dinners there at the restaurant which was excellent! I had swordfish at 2 other recommend restaurants there but this one was perfect!!! Another night we were invited to try a tasting menu at Visir, and wow we had never eaten so many excellent courses one after the other. Also served with excellent wine as the Visir as it has it's own wine choosing/tasting section, we always choose the most local grape, and it was Devine. Our favourite was the Nero grape. The staff were very attentive and caring. Diana was so lovely and sweet she could not do enough for you. Giuseppe was vibrant, energetic and you could tell that he really cared about his job. The the first time I met Giuseppe he was lighting the candles downstairs in the very luxurious restaurant, I needed a ice bucket and 2 seconds later there it was along with an invitation for 2 cocktails for myself and my beautiful Joanna. Overall the staff would do anything to make you comfortable. For example I was bathing by the pool, and a member of staff appeared and brought me a towel, so nice! The owner was so hospitable and made us feel so comfortable, welcome and special we were truly amazed. We could not fault this hotel it was totally fabulous! We believe this hotel is the best and most luxurious in not only Mazara but the surrounding area and is the perfect base for exploring with a car. Just down the road is a large authentic pizzeria which is a favourite of the locals. On a Friday night it was packed full, with lovely pizza which cost 5 euro! And tasted lovely. It was a 6 min drive to the centre of Mazara and once we arrived we experienced many extremely good nights with lovely classy cool bars offering free entrees when we purchased our wine. I'm always surprised by this in Italy although it is the norm, they are top quality!!! We never get this in England, free freshly cooked food or nibbles free with wine.
When ever we arrived back to Visir, we were always treated very very well. the reception staff were very professional and always catered for all our needs. Once the hot tub water level had dropped because I had played with the buttons that shouldn't be normally turned to see what would happen ( wine was involved lol ), I informed staff and when we came back it was fully operational at an ideal temperature.
We found found The Visir very peaceful, a lot nicer than any hotel we have stayed at in Italy and we have been numerous times visiting normally in the north of Italy.
Grazie grazie mille per nostro soggiorno! This was just the holiday that we needed and was a total treat at Visir! This is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in, seriously!
