Where else you can find a hotel, where the staff speaks no other languages than italian?
The exellent chef Antonio, helpful waiter Costa, multitalented cleaner Tamara and biologist Chiara (from diving company) spoke english, spanish or french. The others did not. Nevertheless there was lots of staff and it was very polite and helpful.

The food was an exellent cross-section of Sicilian food heritage.
The bunglows were clean, quiet and air-conditioning was good.
Beds and pillows were made for a decent rest.

Sea-water-filled pool and its surroundings were clean.
Wi-fi works only at pool-bar-area, where you can use Google- translator :)

The hotel is located in the best part of the island - spectacular sun set every evening!

Local taxi takes 1,5 euro to village and communication goes with handsignals if italian is not spoken. People in village were very warm, sincere and helpful.

Do not choose diving company La Perla Nero, if you don`t speak fluent italian.

Room Tip: Bungalows near the pool area

Ustica is a wonderful " natural museum" and the hotel is located in the perfect spot with a jawdropping view, very close to the few wonderful bays in which it is allowed to bath and enjoy the sea life as it should be. We experienced a wonderful time with a great reception service. The animation very active and competent made the difference filling our days and taking care of our kids; the big pool overlooking the sea is very well cared. We enjoied the buffet restaurant with rich food....never twice the same!!. We had a very good time at night with two cabaret shows,an astronomer explaining the constellations and the falling stars (with demonstrations) and a wonderful concert. All the events held by professional people in addition to the great service of the animation. We had a wonderful time and we honestly couldn't expect more!!

The hotel is placed outside the village of Ustica around 15 mins by car. There is a trasfer that can bring you there for 1.5 Euros.
The pool, with sea water, is beautiful and with a short walk you can reach the sea.
Room are nice even if some point should be fixed. The room had the airconditioning while there wasn't a television and in some place the mobile phone could not connect.
Food is average, something is very good something less but both for lunch and dinner there is a big choice.

My family and I stayed for a week and had a good time at Punta Spalmatore. The food is great and varied. The staff are really service-minded. If you need anything they will do their best to get it for you.
Also it is very italian in every way which, if you go to Italy, surely must be part of the charm. I have read the other reviews, and yes some things are not ideal, but if you must have everything polished and punctual then go to Stockholm not Sicily. Something the hotel can do better is to stop this practice of the non-refundable cardboard coins to use in the bar. It is an annoyance.
It is a bit far from town but there is cheap transport available.
