We booked this thorough Travel Republic on a Dinner Bed and Breakfast basis. We were not familiar with Sicily and ended up booking this hotel because of its proximity to the Valley of the Temples. It also looked reasonable based on web site reviews. When we arrived there was a wedding going on in true Sicilian style and was a revelation to watch. Would have loved to take some photos but decided this might be a risky strategy.
The good bits:
The bedroom was comfortable and air conditioned. Bathroom nice. Public areas were well presented and the pool is delightful on the edge of and overlooking the bay. One day we almost had it to ourselves. Staff generally helpful and polite. Location good due to it being only a 5 minute drive from the Valley of the Temples - which was well worth visiting even in nearly 40 degree heat. The pasta dishes in the evening was absolutely delicious
There was very poor communication throughout. No info in the bedroom; dinner was broadcast as being in one place when it in fact was in another; we were staying for 4 nights so we asked for wine to be kept for next day - they lost it - twice. Lift often out of order with no explanation; wrong menus in the restaurant; breakfast was pretty poor - their egg and bacon offering being slightly grilled thin ham and lumpy scrambled eggs in a cold bain marie.
The environment around the hotel is fairly scruffy with rubbish everywhere (a common issue in Sicily) and it looked very down at heel as a resort. It is actually 2 kms from Agrigento on the bay. Finally the food in the evening was unremarkable and more geared to coach tours - of which there were a lot - apart from the pasta above.
