                        Individual guest reviews

                        • The location is beautiful and the hotel is very luxurious. The personnel are all excellent, gorgeous antique furniture and terrace are perfect for relaxation. The food is very good, the choice of cocktails and wines is large.

                          The quality of the room was poor and bathroom was tiny. Breakfast, was even worse, the pool was closed.

                        • The views of the sea from the gardens are beautiful, and the staff were most accommodating, grand Hotel Villa Igiea is a home away from home and set amongst stunning grounds. Personnel are almost perfect, food is excellent.

                          Rooms on road side are very noisy, levels of service are also not great.

                        • Location are beautiful, really an excellent hotel, I would recommend this to anyone travelling to Palermo for holidays and the staff greets you warmly and are always respectful. Rooms are elegant and beds very comfortable.

                          The really bad service at the bar, food was good, menu a little limited for light snacks.

                        • About as good a location as you', very Nice Stay and the concierge chap was lovely as was reception. The rooms were very spacious, the pool bar food was great.

                          Old hotel, service is spotty and the restaurant is horribly bad and expensive.

                        • The rooms and bathrooms are large and sumptuous and the pool area is lovely, hotel is in a beautiful old villa overlooking the yacht marina, the staff are efficient, helpful, and friendly. The restaurant is very good.

                          Needless to say, the manager never showed up, service is mediocre and meals and drinks are very expensive.

                          Beautiful old fashioned Italian hotel and drinks and food expensive. Dinners, , were not excellent.

                          Beautiful hotel awful location and unfriendly staff. No free internet, the restaurant was really disappointing in terms of food.

                          Bathroom could have been better locked after and food and drinks have very high markups. Dinner will be too expensive for most.

                          Service was extraordinarily poor, loved the accommodation were located in an old and dinner in the restaurant was not very good.

                          Extremely poor quality, not worth the money and bad service. Internet was not free, small elevators Inconveniently located for outside restaurants.

                          Way to expensive for the horrible service and medicore food quality, you block a big ammount of money. No proper hair dryer and no complimentary tea/. Limited choice of cereals, the concierge are rude and not helpfull at all.

                          Unfortunately the hotel has not been maintained to a high standard.

                          Location away from city in a boat repair dock and Palermo is hot, dirty and noisy. Service can be slightly unfriendly, the beds are slightly too hard and drinks and food are extremely expensive, even accounting for weak sterling.
