Very nice hotel facing the port of Castellammare del Golfo
I booked this hotel in advance through their web site to reserve an executive room with a balcony facing the port fro 85E per night. This is exactly what we got. The room was a good size - big and with a good size bathroom. The shower was a bit small.
The room was elegantly decorated and made me think of a Sheraton classical room. It had a mini-bar, a TV and a third pillow. Our balcony was small and faced the sea and the port. The hotel is on 2 levels and doesn't have an elevator, but the desk staff, very nice and handsome, helped us with the luggage. The room also has an individually controlled air conditioning. There are only 3 executive rooms. I didn't see the other rooms, but our experience was like a 4 star hotel, even if the site says 3 star.
The breakfast was a continental buffet. It had a lot of choices including prosciutto crudo and any type of coffee - made on demand - was excellent.
The hotel is the last building on the street in the quietest part of the port. We got a bit lost in Castellammare as the steets were very narrow and the indications on the road confusing. We could park our car for free in front of the hotel. There are numerous restaurants, bars and a tavola calda 30-50 meters from the hotel and many others in the port.
Castellammare del Golfo is a lively place at night and we enjoyed our stay. It is not a touristy place. The food at the restaurant and tavola calda was much better and tastier than in the other places we visited in Sicily, it was also more typical.
It was easy to visit Segesta and Scopello, and Riserva delo Zingaro from our hotel by car. Very pleasant place and hotel.
