Il Mastrazzi, RipostoPosted Sep 11, 2013
Pros: Small, neat and tidy, well run, near the sea, with nice bars & eateries within walking distance.
Cons: It was all very nice.
Location: The sea / marina is across the road. The beach, restaurants, bars etc are within easy walking distance. Wine+cheese bar right next door ! Nice place
In August 2013 we stayed three nights at l Mastrazzi, courtesy of Stefania. She runs this small B & B, which looks onto the marina, which is just across the road. Our bedroom suite gave onto the small, private, outside seating area where you could take breakfast. Upper rooms have balconies I think. Rooms are clean, tidy and with modern en-suite shower rooms. The ever helpful Stefania arranged our trip up Etna. Riposto is also the starting point for the little train that runs around the volcano, from which you get some stunning views. It stops at Randazzo [make sure you walk all the way to the main church, where there are nice cafes & ice creams]. A few hours later you take the train to Catania where you have to get the metro to "F.P."- the main railway station- [not the port], and then the main train back to Giarre. From here it is an easy down hill walk back to the B & B. Riposto is quite a good resort and has some nice, fairly classy, restaurants as well as the usual bars, pizza takeaways etc. During our time there Riposto evenings were particularly busy. We highly recommend I Mastrazzi for all ages, with or without kids.

Wonderful B&B- thank youPosted Dec 8, 2012 on Hotels.com
Stefania and her family were so wonderful and accommodating. The rooms were very clean and spacious, and the bed was comfortable. We had a great tour of Etna that she called and arranged for us. She provided a wonderful breakfast in the morning too. Her hospitality truly made our stay in Sicily a memorable and enjoyable one.

Great positionPosted Oct 18, 2012 on Hotels.com
Stefania (B&B owner) was very helpful and very friendly. The location of I Mastrazzi is directly opposite the marina of Riposto and what a fantastic spot it is! We would definitely return there in the future.

We enjoyed 2 nights here at the end of April 2012 and found the premises very easily. We received a warm welcome from Stefania who did everything she could to make our stay comfortable and memorable. We highly recommend this B&B.

on the waterfrontPosted Nov 27, 2011
Close to the seafront and a pleasure boat harbour this is a comfortable and relaxed b and b. The bus stop for the bus to Taormina is a few metres away and trips to Etna can be arranged. I arranged a trip with Siciliamareterra-the guide was very knowledgeable and personable and I would recommend them to anybody. The manager's mother prepares the breakfast so a real family feel to the place. A further family connection is provided by a sister who runs a literary type bar on the main drag called Cuba Libre-just right for browsing books or passing some time.
