Two adults and two children. This was a self-catering apartment in a complex just by the sea. There was a dusty road approx 100m to the beach from our apartment. There was air-conditioning included in the price but it seemed to be on an automatic timer and was not constant but was on for most of the night. There is entertainment included in the evenings and throughout the day by young staff. This is very fun for children. There is no swimming pool here, more the smallest ever paddling pool that looks far too dirty to put a foot in. We paid extra for the breakfast to be included in the price of the stay but really should not have bothered as all the options were sweet with no savoury. This was a huge mistake. It would be better to go to the supermarket 500m away and buy things to make for breakfast instead. There were activities in the morning on the beach such as volleyball and a brief session of aqua aerobics. There is archery and dancing later in the evening. We bought foos at the supermarket and made our meals. The complex restaurants offers a 3 course meal for 15 euros. The quality is not great but acceptable. The entertainment staff made the stay more enjoyable and had us smiling and laughing a lot. The location was not easy to get to and we had to opt for a taxi to get us to the complex. We stayed at Triscinamare for 3 days without going anywhere else because it was too secluded and were on a tight budget to visit surrounding areas.

Dear valued Guests,
We thank all those who contribute to our property’s brand reputation with their opinions and reviews.
Triscinamare Hotel Residence offers entertainment staff and activities and private beach service (“Club” Format) from June to September and is located in a point of the South-West coast of Sicily from which one can easily reach all most important tourist places of western Sicily by car, such as the Archaeological Park of Selinunte (10 minutes by car), Marsala, Segesta (45 minutes by car), Erice, Palermo (1 hour by car).
The road to the beach from the apartment is dusty in accordance with the Italian Law “Galasso”, approved of in 1976, which forbids any building and cement within 150 metres from the beach (for all properties built after 1976) and says that the area surrounding the beach as far as 150 m must be left in its “natural state”.
As to breakfast, we’ve improved our service for the season 2011, and now we offer breakfast buffet in a our breakfast room with a wonderful sea view, and the buffet is made up of salty and sweet food with a variety of fruit juice, jams, biscuits, brioches, cornflakes, cheese, ham and so on.
Breakfast is included in the price for hotel room, whereas it is an extra for accommodation in apartment, which you seem to have chosen. The reason why breakfast is not included in the apartment price is that, as you said, the apartments are supplied with kitchen corner and the guests are free to choose whether to have breakfast at our breakfast room or buy some food at the supermarket and have breakfast and all other meals in the apartment.
We thank you for staying at Triscinamare Hotel residence and look forward to welcoming you again in the future.
