“The epitome of blandness”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

It's hard to convery the suffocating blandness of this hotel. It is adequate from a functional point of view, though our room was rather small and the fixtures and fittings are low spec. But everything about it shouts out 'I have no character whatsover'. The only redeeming feature is the friendly staff on reception - oh, and the fact that it's only a 10 minute walk into the old centre of Mazara, which is gorgeous.
There seem to be rather limited accommodation options in Mazara, but see if you can do better than this!

Hotel was stated to be situated on a lagoon.The hotel is situated opposite a petrol station and slightly further down on the beach is sewerage outflow.The beach is unusable,covered with concrete,rubble and rubbish and litter.The old town is quite picturesque,but the rest of the town lacks any kind of character.

Room Tip: All rooms face onto a central courtyard,which does not allow for a lot of privacy.

This hotel is just a few minutes walk from the town and is on the sea front. Most rooms look out onto a pleasant inner courtyard which has illuminated fountain at night. Our room 112 has a large balcony and comfortable balcony furniture though some of the rooms only had a small Juliet balcony. The swimming pool was a good size and there were sunbeds. The town was interesting to walk around with a couple of small museums and many churches.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a large balcony.

Walking distance to the city center is a plus. The building was ok, the room was ok, the bed was ok, the bathroom ok. Breakfast was ok, although there was no fruit at all. They happily served eggs/omelette, although at an extra charge. The receptionist was helpful enough. The wifi worked only now and then, and was generally slow. One PC in the reception area.
The pool was not yet open for the season.

One night we were tired and didn't feel like going out for dinner. In the dining room there was a band playing full blast ("oh, until midnight, at least"). The bar was closed. So we ended up having room service, eating on the bed (at a surcharge for room service). Not quite what you expect at a 4 star hotel "with restaurant".

The hotel is in an old wine merchant's building, which would be interesting if they told you the story. They don't.

All in all a fair enough hotel - if you have other places to go and things to do.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the sea have a nice view, but you should avoid them if there's a party in...

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of the Saga Seriously Sicily tour. It was a fantastic hotel and the food and dining room were particularly excellent. The sea font setting meant it was easy to stroll out and the seafront is in the process of being upgraded. The town itself is fascinating with its mix of Arab, Jewish, Catholic and African cultures Nd the thriving fishing port. Great choice fora few days.

We spent 3 nights here and found it very comfortable. I guess it helps being out of season, as the price was good and the place not overcrowded. The rooms are spacious and the staff helpful. the hotel is also close to town so evening walks and finding new restaurants was very easy.

Don't be fooled by the hotel name. Every weekend the pool are turns into a gigantic disco with a very talkative DJ. When confronted with guests' inability to sleep, the receptionist responded: "What can I do?".
The 10 euro disco entry fee (including 1 drink) seem to be the better deal.
