A lovely hotel with lovely services.

2 pools in a little 'mini valley' near Donnafugata. A perfect 'get away from it place.

The hotel has good breakfasts and dinners (but note, not every evening) and the dinners are very much worth trying.

The standard of the rooms is high.

We stayed in an apartment, which is on the edge of the property and gives you a bit more privacy with full kitchen amenities.

What is great:
Lots of space, en suite and multiple bathrooms, perfect for familes
The staff are friendly, approachable, but will happily leave you alone


What could be better
Minor gripes
- like no basics (oil/coffee/sugar/salt) in the kitchen. (I left all of the above for the next guest and I hope that they benefit)
- the wifi works but don't rely on it (it didn't work within the apartment)
- the rooms closest to the gate get the road noise, you will experience much more peace closer to the main hotel
- just unplug the TV, there are only 6 channels, and all are rubbish.

You can't do anything about this one - the rooms closest to the gate get a lot of swallow/sparrows! Expect a dawn chorus!

Room Tip: I'ld skip their lunch offerings. You need a car here - 9k to the nearest supermarket/shop A gr...

Dear Mr William,
thank you for your comment.
When you rent an apartment in self catering you always find a welcome kit with olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper, except what is a personal choice as the coffee is.
Yes we have few channels but enough to let you enjoy the beauty of the park and all the surrounding nature along with the birds singing.
You have asked to visit the rooms in the hotel and you were suprised and , perhaps in your case the garden deluxe with private balcony would have been better for you and for your needs. We hope you will come back and the next time book on of our garden deluxe room!

it has been a pleasure to meet you and to receive your opinion, we will try to make everything better!

Our stay at Parco Cavalonga was perfect. We had booked the whole hotel for our friends to stay there for our Sicilian wedding. The staff were wonderful - friendly, fun, accommodating every request, going out of their way to make us comfortable and our guests welcome. They helped arrange a fantastic dinner for 30 (the dinners are excellent - a three nut pasta in particular), helped with travel arrangements and were flexible to changes in schedules. We couldn't have asked for more.

The hotel itself is beautiful, set within the surrounding valley and giving the sense of fitting in with the countryside rather than imposing itself upon it. It has rustic charm. The two swimming pools are both beautiful and the top one in particular gives wonderful views. We stayed in a superior room which was clean and spacious and also had a good view. The apartments were ideal for groups of friends and families and were great value given the excellent facilities.

Cavalonga is located near beautiful Ragusa and in short driving distance of loads of other towns, vineyards, beaches, national parks, etc. I really couldn't recommend it more.

Thanks to all the staff and in particular Rosanna, Noemi and Rosangela who made us so welcome and our wedding so special. We will come again.

We spent five days at Parco Cavalonga in mid-April. The Relais is about an hour and twenty minutes drive from Catania airport. It is essentially a small estate in the lovely countryside of the Monte Iblei. And for Montalbano fans, a number of sites where the tv series was shot are close by, so long as you have a car. The staff were delightful -- nothing was too much trouble. There is a buffet breakfast and -- at least at the time of year we went -- dinner is available on certain nights. We ate in on two or three occasions and the food was excellent. This is a place we would go back to.

We stayed at the Relais Parco Cavalonga for 4 days and had a fantastic time. It’s a beautiful little retreat in the country side with two pools. One much larger than the other both with great views over the countryside. The staff are great and extremely helpful. Noemi on reception was so friendly and helped us with everything we needed, and Maria did a fantastic job of looking after all guests and ensuring they had plenty of drinks and food. It’s lovely and quiet here, we really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back. Many thanks to all the staff for ensuring we had a wonderful time!

We had a good time staying there. We actually stayed in one of the apartments. The place was big and clean, but the kitchen appliances, the bed and even the bathroom are on the cheap side, even the Wi-Fi was not working. Breakfast is ok but basic; none of the cakes or pastry seemed to be made in house. On the plus side, the staffs were friendly and the domain is really nice, lost in the middle of olive groves. There are 2 swimming pools and you are about 20 min from the coast / beaches.

Dear guest,
We are glad you had a lovely stay in our relais.
The style our apartment suites is country and simple and not cheap, maybe you cannot agree with the style but we respect your opinion.
Our breakfast is plenty of local products and mostly our cakes are handmade together with our jams.
For wifi we understand that it could be a problem if you do not have service 24 hours, but as you have seen we are in the middle of the Sicilian countryside and as per our information at the reception desk, it may happen that the line is disturbed or not available.
The staff thanks you to have been with us!
