Fantastic unique hotel
Posted Jul 15, 2016
We stayed in Hotel Eremo della Giubilianna for three nights and couldn't have anticipated a better stay. From the moment we stepped through the door, the experience was excellent and received a very nice welcome including a glass of prosecco on arrival. It is a converted monastery in a private estate setting and a real boutique hotel feel. Beautifully maintained location with great attention to detail. The staff and service levels were excellent coupled with fantastic restaurant in a unique location. The staff couldn't have done anymore for us, they even assisted us planning our onward trip around Sicily and provided guides for nearby things to do and see and eat. On the first night we had the five course tasting menu and it was excellent, tasty unique food in the beautiful romantic courtyard setting. I would highly recommend this. Breakfast buffet was a great spread of fruit, hot food, pastries, cakes, meats and cheeses and very accommodating to our requests for soft boiled eggs and other extras. We have travelled the world and I can really say the service levels and ambiance at this hotel are absolutely outstanding. Very convenient to reach the beach and nearby baroque towns such as Ragusa, Modica and Scicli. If planning a trip to this region, don't stay anywhere else! Even the pets (cats and Dog Lilly) were friendly and playful. We will definitely return. Just wished we could have picked up this hotel and taken it with us for the rest of our trip around Sicily.
