The best hotel in Sicily

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Igiea.Very elegant and luxurious hotel. Extremely comfortable with fabulous breakfast on their beautiful terrace overlooking their great Medterranean garden.You are treated like royalty by a very competent and extremely helpful staff. The value of this hotel is excellent, even if it is a bit far from the center . You will find calm and serenity in one of the most crowded cities in Italy Monique

Excellent holiday for ladies travelling alone

The hotel is everything it says on the website and is as beautiful as the photos portray. The staff are excellent especially in the restaurant. The food is fantastic and cooked to order so be patient. Buffet breakfast first class ;lots of choice and well cooked and fresh. The pool is extremely clean and well maintained; there were always sunbeds so none of that silliness of having to get there early to bag a place. The free shuttle works well although see next papagraph. The shuttle has to be booked but there is no record kept by the driver about who has booked so we were once left in Palermo because amother couple had turned up without booking and as the people carrier was fun has assumed everyone was there. Our only problem was that communication between guests and staff is not good. Examples would be that there were two special evenings; a buffet by the pool one night and a champagne and oysters evening in the bar on another. Apparently we should have booked but there was absolutely no publicity within the hotel about these. We understand that you have to be 'in the know.' Also the staff know little or nothing about any trips to other places so you are on your own there but get to the station and there are trains there that go everywhere. Overall we would definitely stay there again although don't go there if you want to tour the island it's difficult.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Get to the central train station to find our about trips and other places on the island. Go to Cefalu on the train it is delightful! It's a bus ride to the station (107) from where you are dropped by the shuttle but don't expect the buses to be frequent despite what the timetable says.

Grand hotel but with some room for improvement

The hotel is grand and the gardens/pool area lovely. The location is on the edge of Palermo but they run a shuttle bus in high season.. there are however limited places so it is wise to reserve early, taxis will cost around €20. The staff are helpful and welcoming, but the service at breakfast for coffee is extremely slow and often we had finished breakfast by the time that it had arrived. Wi fi is also only in public areas unless you want to pay €9 for in room access, which was a bit disappointing for a 5* hotel. I have stayed in many hotels of this star rating across the world and although it is an attractive hotel, I did find it to be overly pretentious.
