Hotel Right on the Beach, in a disappointing areaPosted May 31, 2015
Pros: Being able to walk from the hotel to the beach without crossing a road. No need to pay for a lounge chair at the beach.
Cons: The Beach is Filthy, rubbish everywhere, plastic bits, bags, styrofoam in the sand that have washed up on shore. Make the coffee machine free all day
Location: Castellemmare Del Golfo is 15-20 mins away and another 15 mins to Scopello, another 5 to Zingaro. San Vito Lo Capo is an hour away, Trapani 45 mins.
Overall disappointed with the hotel. For the price, there should have been a lot more included, larger rooms, and it should have been in a much nicer area. My family (2 adults, 2 kids) stayed here for 8 days the last week of May 2015. Ive spent over 4 months in Sicily and wanted to try a new hotel location (big mistake). My wife nearly cried when she saw the room. Recommend you find a hotel in Scopello, San Vito, Trapani or Bonagia depending on your preference. PROs: the hotel is right on the beach. We didn't have to pay for beach chairs. The kids could go from the beach to pool whenever they wanted. The staff were friendly and spoke English very well. They helped out by calling to make reservations for us. CONs: The room was SMALL. Shower was very slow from years of sand. The hotel is in Alcamo beach... the week we were there, it looked like a war zone: garbage everywhere, weeds lined the road, no open restaurants. You have to drive to another town to get to restaurants. Disappointing to not be able to walk to meals. The beach is FILTHY! Rubbish everywhere. The breakfast (that many reviews raved about) was a minimal continental spread: several pastries, 3-4 fresh fruits, 2 canned fruits, 2 juices, coffee, 2 lunch meats and one sliced cheese selection. You can ask for eggs. At precisely 1000, the breakfast is put away and you must pay for coffee. Because they have a restaurant, they will not allow you to eat food purchased from other establishments in their areas.

Bon choix pour ceux qui aiment le bruit des vaguesPosted Nov 15, 2014 on Hotels
L'accès n'est pas facile et pourtant il est au bord de la mer. Mais une fois qu'on y est, c'est génial. Un hôtel nickel, propre, tout confort. Un personnel aimable et la mer. Nous avions prévu un jour à cet hôtel pour en prendre deux. J'avais lu des commentaires pas très sympa sur le restaurant qui ne me semblent pas mérités. Nous l'avons testé (couscous de poisson excellent), mais pour varier le lendemain nous sommes allés à un restaurant à une centaine de mètres "La Riva" de Mimmo qui a une salle géante, un choix impressionnant et un excellent rapport qualité prix (25€ à deux avec vin).

Superb locationPosted Oct 29, 2014 on Hotels
Spent our last night in Sicily here, right on the beach, absolutely gorgeous location. Easy drive to the airport, would recommend it to anyone, really friendly helpful staff.It wasn't cheap but it was worth every penny to walk along the beach and see the sun come up and then enjoy a delicious breakfast.

Hotel SUR la plagePosted Oct 28, 2014 on Hotels
Nous avons sejourne a l'hotel La Battigia. Certes hors saison. Mais une sejour sans grand commentaire. Tout s'est bien passe. L'hotel est sur la plage, a l'exterieur de Castellammare del Gofo. LEs chambres sont tres grandes. Blacon. Page pas tres clean neanmoins.

Leuk hotel op het rustige zandstrandPosted Oct 18, 2014
Pros: Je kunt vanuit het hotel direct het strand op lopen waar privé strandbedjes met parasol gratis ter beschikking staan evenals strandlakens.
Cons: Het hotel mag beter geïsoleerd worden zodat het minder gehorig is.
Location: Dit hotel is perfect voor een rust vakantie, echter als je in de omgeving uitstapjes wilt maken is dit niet de ideale locatie.
Mooi gelegen hotel op een zandstrand met een zeer rustig aflopende kustlijn. Erg vriendelijk personeel. De prijs kwaliteit is erg goed, tevens is het ontbijt vrij uitgebreid en het aanbod is kwalitatief goed. Voor de lunch is dit ook goed geregeld. Het hotel is wel erg gehorig en in de week dat wij er waren zijn er twee groepen met scholieren geweest wat soms voor enige overlast zorgde, echter hebben wij dit bij de receptie gemeld en dit is perfect opgelost door het personeel aangezien wij vanaf dat moment geen enkele overlast meer hebben gehad.

Great LocationPosted Sep 16, 2014
Great location, hotel feels like its had its best days and needs some love, things seem to move a bit slower in Sicily, as we have children and it did not seem to register that we needed a cot at a certain time, that said over all, is was an enjoyable stay.

Posto tranquillo luogo che permette di muoversi facilmente e la zona ha un passaggio bellissimo , l'hotel ha un ottimo personale e la struttura è buona, mare e piscina insieme.

We stayed here for 1 night, more of a 3 than a 4 star hotel. The hotel is old but very clean and staff are friendly. The hotel is located in a beautiful location, on an endless soft white sandy beach with warm waters. It's kind of in the middle of knowhere, but the nearby pretty town offers some small good restaurants. I'm always sceptical about hotel restaurants but had fantastic fresh fish served to us here.

If you're looking for a beach vacationPosted Aug 7, 2014 on Hotels
First impressions were not good. We arrived early evening and were greated to literally hundreds of teenagers in and around the hotel, and in the surrounding beach area. Apparently this is the summer resort playground for many Italians and Europeans. We couldn't find a place to park and it looked like I had finally made a mistake using hotels.com. Worse, when we went to check in the front desk advised us that hotels.com had cancelled our reservation, without letting us know, due to a change in credit card - I had to replace because of fraudulous acitivty. I'll spare the rest of the details but to say that from then on the hotel was excellent. They solved our check-in issue and overall the service was excellent. Highlights of this hotel - an excellent, long beach with great sand and water access. If you like walking a beach, this is a great place. The restaurant was excellent, the room adequate, comfortable and clean and the pool/amenities were very good. We really enjoyed our stay. Cons - if you don't like crowds - it can be a little intimidating depending on when you stay here. It can be a very busy beach. By the same token, there is a vibrancy here as well. Lesson - never judge a book by it's cover. We ended up liking this place very much and would recommend it.
