I highly recommend eremo della gubliana. We enjoyed our time in this very special place. Rooms are comfortable food is good and the atmosphere is relaxing. Moreover, service is very welcoming and careful
We booked for 5 days on the recommendation of a friend. No disappointment at all! Greeted with prosecco or almond milk on arrival on a dark winter night, we never lacked for anything during our stay. The staff, especially Lorenzo and Letizia, were engaged and helpful every day with recommendations for places to see or to eat, or just to enjoy. The restaurant was great every morning for breakfast and we enjoyed 3 dinners there as well. Locally raised and prepared dishes were outstanding! Wine cellar is stocked with wonderful Sicilian wines. Margharita assisted my daughter (from the States) in getting a birthday cake made for my birthday while we were there. Delicious and timely!
Our travel agents recommended this place and it is just exactly what we like. Family owned just outside of Ragusa and just beautiful. Our suite is 3 stories with two garden decks and magnificent views. The grounds are beautiful and the service and welcoming staff could not be better. We are so happy to be here.
Eremo della Giubiliana is more than a 5 star hotel, it is a historic building in a most wonderful location with service that shines above any other generic 5 start hotel you might stay at. For example it was raining one day and my shoes were covered in mud, I left them outside adn when I returned later in the day, the house keeper had cleaned them completly with out me asking. I would highly recommend this hotel.
The staff were extremely helpful, considerate & knowledgable treating us wonderfully from the glass of prosecco on arrival to answering our many queries. Dinner in the restaurant is not to be missed! We stayed in one of the cottages which afforded us the privacy and freedom we wanted from our honeymoon but still benefitted from the hotel's facilities and same high quality of service, cleaning and thoughtfulness of hotel staff who went the extra mile. Fully recommended!
This was the best hotel that we stayed in during our 2 weeks in Sicily. I can also say that it is one of the best that I've stayed in during any trip to Italy. We had a beautiful junior suite. The hotel is a former Benedictine monastery and also was the home to the Knights of Malta in the 16th century. It has been beautifully restored and is well cared for by the hotel staff. The hotel also has one of the best restaurants in Sicily, Don Eusebio. Our room was spacious, and the air conditioning worked extremely well in the sweltering heat. The hotel also has a nice pool in a shaded area. Breakfast was a pleasant dining experience. Service throughout is absolute perfection. The hotel is located outside of Ragusa so you have the peace and tranquility of the countryside.
Our sat nav took us up an overgrown weedy path at first but we quickly realised our mistake and drove round the corner to the proper driveway and closed gates! After a few seconds we realised we had to announce our arrival on their intercom system and then we were allowed in. We were welcomed with luggage assistance and a nice cold glass of almond milk. Then a brief tour of the gardens and pool area and shown information on the reception board about trips available. The reception and hotel room were beautifully decorated with antiques, luscious drapes and carpets befitting a converted monastery. We had a superior room with a view of a tree and red roof tiles. Adequate size and clean and bright. The iron bed was exceptionally high but comfortable enough. No water, tea or coffee in room which would have been welcome. The first night we had dinner in their wine cellar which was atmospheric. The second night tables were laid out in a candlelit courtyard which was delightful. The menu choices were a bit fancy for our liking (with prices to match) but we managed to find something we liked and the food was very tasty. Driving out into the dark countryside to find somewhere else for dinner didn't appeal to us so you are slightly a captive audience unless you want to make the effort to drive elsewhere. The pool was lovely and peaceful but the sunbeds could do with a bit of an upgrade or clean. Drinks were available by waiter service by the pool which was nice. There are chickens, turkeys and pigs and a resident dog called Lilly all adding to the charm of the hotel. Overall this was a lovely stay for 2 nights.
Wow what an amazing, special place! From the moment we arrived we felt like we were visiting family in a beautiful summer home instead of staying at a hotel. You feel so peaceful and welcomed here, all while receiving five star service. The grounds are gorgeous, the staff are extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer questions, and the rooms are spacious and comfy. Do not miss dinner at Eremo - it's fantastic and a wonderful experience. We drove to Ragusa and Modica from the hotel, then Agrigento after checking out. Special thanks to everyone for the detailed directions and sight seeing ideas! I also appreciated their honesty when they gently told me one of the towns I wanted to see was not a good place to stop, and rerouted me to a better location. Much appreciated. I would not hesitate to stay here again, I will be dreaming of Eremo when I get home!
We have spent 8 days in Eremo Della Giubiliana and we loved every moment of our stay and it was the perfect base to explore the south of Sicily and the towns of Modica, Ibla, Scicli, Noto etc.. Apart from the great and peaceful location, the hotel atmosphere and decor is very authentic and pleasant, is like stepping back in History with all nowaday comforts. A special mentioning to the staff in every department that makes you feel really at home and goes the extra mile to accomplish your needs. Also amazing food and local ingredients. If you are there on a Saturday, make sure you go to the Ricotta Cheese preparation as it is an amazing experience and also visit the Parco Molini with the excursion that the Hotels organize.
Just back from a week at the Eremo after a few nights in Ortigia - and it was a real wrench to leave. We had visited before for dinner, but when you stay there, you realise what a special place it is - the service is very personal, and I think those that have criticised it may prefer a certain anonymous five star slickness (that you don't often get in Italy thank goodness). Eremo somehow manages to create a comfortable, unhurried, homely feel within a beautiful historic space - so it's a very relaxing, stylish base from which to visit the beach, Ragusa Ibla, Scicli etc, or just hang out on sun loungers in the beautiful gardens by the pool. Angelo runs things exceptionally well, creating an atmosphere where you do feel like friends as well as guests - life isn't perfect, so of course there are things that don't work out as expected, but we found that he was really keen to understand our needs and make sure we were happy. We stayed in cottage no 4, and cycled or walked across for breakfast, depending on our mood. Our 11 year old adored living on the runway - it's very peaceful, looks romantic at sunset and at night when lit up, and you do see the occasional take-off or landing. While you don't get room service there, you do have a daily maid service, which is excellent - we came back each day to a spotless, fresh environment; I have no idea how it's done so well so quickly. You can also make tea, coffee, there's a great minibar and the possibility of a BBQ, which we didn't use this time. It was the busiest time in Sicily, but the team made sure we were able to get into the restaurants or beach clubs that we wanted to, which I know wasn't easy! We had a couple of great meals at Don Eusobia, the chef Giorgio is really talented and very friendly too - when he's not busy he will come out to say hello and have a chat. We are missing Eremo della Giubiliana very much already...
