This is an excellent choice for Castellammare del Golfo. Right on the water. Reserve a waterfront room with balcony and you’ll have a beautiful view of the marina and castle. Smallish room and bathroom but it doesn’t matter. Excellent breakfast buffet with eggs, which you can enjoy outdoors on their deck. Very friendly and helpful staff. They recommended the restaurant next door, Cumpo, which was really excellent and gives specials to hotel guests. They also arranged a spectacular scenery boat ride for us on the Penelope, which I highly recommend. Views during the day and night are stunning. Parking is plentiful. Loved it here and you will as well.

Dear Mr. bwdlinks,
thank you so much for appreciating our structure and all our hard work so much! Every day we try to satisfy the customer in the best possible way, starting from the coffee or cappuccino in the morning, the detailed information and the smiles at the reception, until the very careful cleaning of the rooms.
Hope to see you soon, at the next holidays!!!

We travelled around Sicily for two weeks and Cala Marina ranked as our favourite hotel - it richly deserved the 5 star reviews it receives.
A small and simple hotel, it goes out of its way to treat its guest well and give a personal service. It is well located at the western end of the harbour front with easy access to the restaurants and bars of Castellemmare which, incidentally, is a lovely little town.
The young gentleman in charge speaks very good English and will provide information about the area and cares about his guests. The other staff were efficient and welcoming, especially the bubbly receptionist and the young waitress.
The hotel does not serve dinner, but there are many restaurants close at hand. Breakfast is served inside or outside on a deck overlooking the harbour. There is a very good choice from the buffet, with many local titbits. And, they don't run out of stuff like other hotels as it's all regularly replenished. It was nice to be offered extra coffee by the young waitress rather than having to ask for it. So, sit back, enjoy the early morning sunshine and watch the boats pottering about in the harbour, now you know you're on holiday.
The room is simply furnished with tiled floor, large comfortable bed, air conditioning, tv safe and wifi. Our room, 101, was towards the back and had a small terrace. The first floor rooms have balconies and those at the front have harbour views, so these may be preferable.
There is free parking just opposite the hotel.
Don't expect luxury, but expect a friendly and personal service and a very relaxing stay.

We arrived earlier than check in time but we were invited to sit on the deck outside and we were brought coffee and kept updated on the preparation of our room. Our baggage was taken up to the room for us and what a surprise. We had booked a twin room overlooking the marina and what a view it was, sitting on the balcony soaking up the atmosphere. The breakfast buffet was more than adequate with something for everyone and accompanied by good cappuccino. But the everlasting memory for me will be the great service from all the staff who were determined to make make our stay comfortable and memorable without being intrusive. I cannot remember when last I have received such service. Bravo to you all at Cala Marina. We will be back.

Room Tip: Front rooms with balcony overlooking the marina

We stayed here three nights in this quaint village in the middle of our two week trip to Italy. Both couples have stated that this was the highlight of the trip. We loved the town, we loved the hotel, and we loved the staff. Claudia was a bundle of energy and a very gracious host, always greeting us with a smile. Nicola (not sure of the spelling) was a very professional and helpful morning host as well. All the staff were great! The patio across the street where we had our afternoon drinks was wonderful, as we could simply relax looking out at the harbor. The breakfast was excellent and much nicer than we had come to expect. The restaurants that were recommended to us by the staff were excellent. Overall, fantastic experience! Thank you Hotel Cala Marina and staff. We hope to be back in a few years!
