                    The hotel is very luxurious. Though it is not so far from the city center, it has incredibly calm atomosphere.

                    You'd better choose a hotel in the city center, if you would like to go sightseeeing just in one or two days.

                    Location. There are luxury few hotels in or near Palermo with a pool which was one of our requirements. The location for Palermo is good, but it is necessary to use the (free) hotel shuttle bus in and out of the city which has limited space and is not particularly frequent. Otherwise, as it is too far to walk, taxis need to be used which charge between 15 and 20 Euros for a one way trip. Driving a hire car in Palermo is not to be recommended.

                    1. Hotel is shabby in some areas. There were a number of, admittedly brief, power cuts and the internet in the business centre was out of action for two days. 2. Our room was not up to standard in that a couple of light switches were loose, the balcony was untidy and only swept clean on request and the anti mosquito plug needed recharging. It was also too small to be described as "King Deluxe Room Plus" by any stretch of the imagination. 3. Food (breakfast and dinner) was distinctly average. 4. Service (the pool attendants apart) was casual at times, particularly in the restaurant. 5. Drinks and food are extremely expensive, even accounting for weak sterling. Overall the hotel has no shortage of visitors and weddings (3 during our 6 night stay), but appears complacent. Definitely not a 5 star experience and we would not return.

                    Nice building.

                    Location away from city in a boat repair dock; Room looked tired and worn, complete with a damp smell from carpets. Plumbing was questionable with inconsistent availability of hot water. Given the price for this hotel, it's not awful, but certainly not up to the standard.

                    The hotel, the room, the personnel are all excellent.

                    The fitness room was not very well equipped, the taxis of the hotel tend to apply higher rates, the snack menu was very limited despite the fact that the hotel is rather far away from the city.

                    Everything was perfect!

                    A little far from town, but there is a free shuttle, so no problem.

                    The location is beautiful. Too far out of Palermo to walk to the city but the hotel shuttle bus was a great asset and we made full use of it. The room was lovely and spacious and the bathroom was beautiful. Breakfast was amzing and you could have anything you wanted. The staff were all extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble.Lovely swimming pool, a great place for a relaxing luxury break.

                    Expect to pay lots for food and drink not included in your room rate. Very expensive. We remedied this by using two very nice restaurants at the end of the road and the ice cream parlour there sold a range of food and drink.

                    This is a seriously luxurious hotel - a real treat. The rooms and bathrooms are large and sumptuous and the pool area is lovely. Its location is great, as long as you look straight out to sea, or slightly to the left. (There is a large dockyard next to it on the right). It was nice to be able to use the free shuttle bus service into Palermo (and not have to drive/park!) Breakfast was wonderful.

                    It was a shame that the food at lunch was so expensive and poor quality. We paid 24 Euros for a basic club sandwich and 18 Euros for a 'Caesar salad' that consisted of a plate of iceberg lettuce still swimming in the water it was washed in with a dollop of strange dressing, and decided that we couldn't risk having dinner at the hotel.

                    Just question! Why the maids came every day to us with the question: "all ok"? But two delicious candy - it's great!))))

                    We have family in Palermo and we always stay at the Villa Igiea and have done for over 6 years now. The staff are so polite and helpful and always friendly. We have organized our wedding plans at the Villa Igiea for August 2012 and the management and staff have given us 1 st class service . The food is of high standard but the menu is limited in the low season. If you are taking a holiday to relax and distress this is one of the nicest Hotels to stay at and enjoy .
