"Great Golf Resort in Rural Sicily"
Loved this place which had a lovely hotel set in beautiful countryside. 2 Good golf courses although the greens were not switched before early morning play. Lots of horrible flies. Gorgeous pool area and nice food. Really enjoyed our stay here although hardly ever in the room !
"a nice surprise at the Carrubba!"
Qualitative service, good and well presented plates, in line with the overall experience at this premium resort. After a nice day of golf on the Links was a a positive and pleasant surprise. Well done.
"Stunning hotel "
I have recently returned from a two night business trip to this hotel. The hotel lies in the beautiful Sicilian countryside and has it owns 18 hole golf course with many of the rooms offering views overlooking it. The rooms are all of a high quality standard and offers all the facilities you would expect from a 5* property. We ate in the main buffet breakfast as well as the on site restaurant and all then food we had was delicious and of a high standard. The breakfast especially had lots of choice and catered to all tastes. Although we didn't make use of it, we had a tour of the onsite spa and wellness centre which again was of a high standard. I really enjoyed my stay at this lovely hotel especially in the outdoor areas such as the around the infinity pool and the lovely outdoor square from the restaurants and bars.
"Could be fabulous"
A lovely spot but the entrance road to it is very poor and scruffy. You have to park away from the hotel and walk up to its non decrpit entrance. Staff are friendly,rooms are spacious and well equipped. Lovely grounds poor signage can leave you wandering around . Nothing feels really joined up ! Food was Ok and breakfast a bit canteen like. Pool and facilities are excellent. I don't play golf and visited for a 2 day conference
"Looking very worn - maybe its forgotten that its primarily a golf resort'"
Seven golfers, mixed group, 5 nights, 2 rounds on each course. Let's start with the positives. Nice welcome, good size room, clean and well serviced. Excellent concierge/front desk service. Good breakfast buffet selection. Efficient caddy master support, helpful proshop staff. Lovely old courtyard area with excellent cocktails service in the 'night bar'/sunset bar. Very nice indoor pool/hydrotherapy layout. Attractive ourdoor pool and extensive pretty gardens. BUT....its a golf resort and its not being cared for anywhere close to well enough out on the courses. Both have excellent design layouts. The Links especially has lots of really interesting and memorable holes. But if you've got a course which is littered with many huge bunkers you have to ensure there is enough sand in them! Many were virtually bare, with no sand running up to 360 degree vertical lips, stones galore (and even the odd broken bolt to contend with. Such a shame. The Links fairways too (and some tees) were neglected with a quiet significant rabbit damage. The Parkland course was mainly in better condition and the greens putted better. But large areas of fairways had been infested with weed and coarse grasses. The fine dining restaurant was closed throughout our stay, so we ate out after the first night. The Clubhouse restaurant was poor, with poor service, even surly on occasion. The buffet at lunch was fine, but the salads from the a la carte menu were atrocious. Overall the review has to be decided by the quality of the golf offering...and that's only 3 star. It really needs more resource allocated and significant refurbishment on both courses. I hope it gets it....SOON.
