We travel extensively and were extremely disappointed with this hotel. The service was horrible (room never cleaned and no fresh towels), the reception desk people were indifferent and couldn't care less about the guests, the hotel was old, ugly and dirty. The hallways to the room areas used circa 1970's blue/green linoleum in the hallways with stark white walls. The room looked like an army barracks or a college dormitory with a rock-hard bed, ancient pillows (had to ask more than twice for extra pillows), old ratty towels, a 30-year-old television that didn't work, no dressers or drawer space - only formica shelves.
The kicker was the balcony. The balcony had no furniture on it so you couldn't sit on it to get out of the ugly room. The balcony also had no privacy. There was a single railing on each side so your neighbors were literally right there next to you. The neighbors in this hotel were noisey, screaming families with no class. The kids were running and screaming all over this hotel, the pool areas, the common areas all hours of the day and night. They also had a very loud pool line dancing class every afternoon with full amplification that seemed to last for hours on end. Also, mothers were bringing toddlers wearing diapers in the pool. This is grossly unsanitary but no-one seemed to care. Needless to say, there was no way we would think of going in that pool. There was a half-way decent beach that they'd bring you down by a shuttle. Lots of steps, rocks and then a small area of sand. Nothing to write home about.
The dining area was like a school cafeteria with a terrible buffet with horrible food. We endured that torture once and that was it. People came to dinner wearing their bathing suits. It was really gross.
This is not a hotel for couples. It is meant for people with out of control screaming children that believe being about :20 minutes from the next closest town in the middle of nowhere is the place to be for a vacation. I would never stay at this horrible place again. You would be better off in a bed and breakfast in Sciacca, or better yet, stay in Agrigento where there are very nice hotels and a lovely and clean city with some culture and history.
