Dioscuri Bay Palace Hotel
Ranked #3 of 3 Hotels in San Leone
Reviewed 3 April 2014

A best Western Hotel geared up for short stays e.g. one nighters. Location is excellent but on the evening of our arrival a great storm was brewing so were unable to make use of the balcony.

The shower door had a design fault so the bathroom floor ended doubling up as a paddling pool. The whole hotel could do with a refurbishment as very tired.

Breakfast room is vast - the hotel is geared up for organised tours - food selection was pretty poor and the drinks machine did not empty the previous selection fully so ended up with a cappuccino tasting tea.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room overlooking the sea

Stayed for one night only on a VJV tour of Sicily.
If this was a Best Western, I'd hate to think what a Worst Western would be like.
Paper thin walls, short bed, far from clean floor, only bathroom toiletry was soap, an attractive view over the nearby filling station.
Very average breakfast with no fresh juice, scrambled egg only just warm, awful coffee
The bar, allegedly open to 11pm was closed when we returned from an evening meal at 10.45

As part of a tour group we spent two nights at this clean, modern hotel. Upstairs rooms facing the bay have a nice view. Our group meal and breakfast buffet were both good. Internet access was provided at no additional charge. While our other overnight stays were in the city that we were visiting, this hotel is not in town and therefore somewhat remote. No problem for me as I enjoyed the views, As the hotel selection was part of the tour cost, I can't address the value aspect of the hotel stay.

Room Tip: Rooms upstairs have nice views.

Apparently quite new when I stayed Sept.2013. Beautiful pool, patio, and dining hall overlooking the water and good sunsets. Rooms modern and comfortable. The only caveat is that the walls are paper-thin; even ordinary conversations in the next rooms can be heard.

Nice large rooms facing the water, and a great, large pool right on the coast. A group dinner was very well done.
Easy to walk down the street along the sea. Agrigento temples are not far away. This was a good base to see the local sights.

Fabulous hotel. Rooms were clean and very comfortable and everything worked - even internet access was great. Our room with a balcony overlooked the pool and the Med - perfect. Two aspects let it down - one was a television blasting noise late at night (poor room insulation) and the other, quite unforgivable, access to the pool toilets. I was directed by two members of staff to go down a tube-like corridor, down filthy steps caked with dirt littered with dead cockroaches. The toilets smelled very bad and there were no lights, well none that I could find anyway. Quite disgraceful and lopped off the fifth star.

We visited this hotel as part of a tour towards the end of Oct. 2013. We were alocated a room which overlooked an extension to the hoted which was unfinished. The cement mixer and unfurnished new block clearly implied work in progress. We changed rooms and were given a room facing the harbour at the front of the hotel. This was more promising despite lacking privacy as the balcony was on full view of incoming coaches and visitors to the main entrance. There were several coach tours staying at the hotel and to accomodate the volume of people, we were all corralled into one large dining area separate to the main hotel. Although decorated nicely we soon realised we were being treated differently than other guests inside the main hotel. The food was not the same as the hotel menu. There was almost no choice.It was extremely bland, served almost cold and inexpensively budgeted. Many of the wines on the list were unavailable. The service was poor, the staff impolite and poorly trained. Several members on our trip abandoned dinner altogether after the first night and ate out locally. They did not miss anything.Our experience was marred further after dinner on the second night when we discoverd the loss of a substantial amount of cash from my wallet which had some how found its way under the centre of the table, all intact minus the cash. There was no support from the hotel made directly to us.We will not be going back.
