Our experience with this B&B was purely positive! Nice cosy beds, tasty breakfast, good location (even though you had to do a bit of walking to the center/coast, but I suppose it would've been very fast with the bikes that are offered for free at the place)!
Ignazio, the owner, is extremely humble and polite and was very helpful when we needed advice on travelling in and around Trapani. He kindly provided us with a guidebook on Italy when we decided to travel to the East of Sicily for a few days.
The breakfast, even though it was vegetarian and we're not, was super delicious, just enough and made from local products only (which, believe me, are VERY tasty and fresh). The croissants with pistachio cream are worth fighting over, they are probably my best food memory from Sicily and I often miss them.
The "scary dogs" that someone mentioned in their review belong to Ignazio, they were actually really friendly and they were only allowed to walk in the garden so they wouldn't disturb any of the guests. Actually, one of the biggest advantages of this place is that you can stay there with your pet!
The noise from the main street in the morning was actually a good substitution for an alarm because we never wanted to miss breakfasts and wanted to start the day early. If you want a quiet morning, however, it's better to take a double en suite room facing the terrace.
The facilities at the place were pretty good. There are 2 bathrooms, both having shower cabins. It was more than enough to accommodate all the guests. Most people arrive with their own laptops, I suppose, but we had to use the computer a lot and the Internet was pretty fast and stable. The cleaning lady was pretty amiable. You can ask her for a hairdryer and an iron and you don't need to pay for either.
Most people who stay at the B&B seem to be couples, they are usually quite lovely and interesting and easy to make friends with, so take advantage of your breakfasts to make new friends. I also suggest taking over the big table in the living room if you decide to have a night in. Get some strong Sicilian wine and interesting conversation topics with fellow B&B guests are guaranteed!
