The charges for this motel are reasonable. However, having booked and paid for 1 week we arrived to discover we had no balcony or terrace with our room (all the pictures have balconies). A week is a long time with no seating area or anywhere to dry one's towels etc. We asked to be moved and were told the hotel was full. Actually I don't think the receptionist could be bothered, she was fairly joyless. There was no soul to the place and the pool closed when there were high winds. A night or two would be fine. The village itself is FAB.
Although the Hotel is in a narrow street the welcome from Bruno is very genuine and he is always willing to help should you have any question re parking ,accomodation or where to find anything locally.The room was more than adequate for us and were able to spread out.Access to a small roof terrace allows a view across the Golfo toward Palermo Airport.
there is sufficient space for the couple of sunbeds to be found there.We have stayed here 3 times and have no worries or hesitation about returning again .There are no shortage of excellent local shops within a hundred meters with very friendly staff willing to put up with an Englishman attempting to speak Italian. The bar behind the hotel ,run by Vito, is a great place to watch the world go by over a cafe and a casatelle on a Sunday morning.If are one for enjoying local life without frills Plejadi makes sense
Fabulous hotel! Staff was beyond helpful with everything from transfers to tours to restaurants!! Simone was fabulous!! Gabriella was also wonderful!! Make sure you eat at Emporium & go to Peter Pan Beach Center - day & niteclub! The breakfast at Cala Marina is amazing!! We will be back next summer!!!

Clean, modern, friendly hotel with direct access to a small beach. Really good breakfast and lovely pool. The staff are all exceptionally friendly , speak good english and are very helpful and knowledgeable about the local area. There are plenty of free parking spaces just outside the hotel and in a layby just over the road. Our teenage daughter was impressed by the really good WiFi
Castellamare itself is a lovely resort with good beaches , lovely old town and harbour with tons of good restaurants and bars.
The only downside to this hotel is its location on a very busy main road, we had asked for rooms with sea views and got them - the view was lovely as the sea is just the other side of the road but the traffic noise is very loud even with the windows closed, possibly better to forego the sea view for a quieter room at the back of the hotel if you're particularly bothered by noise.
we used a variety of hotels throughout our whistle stop tour of Sicily. Staff here the most fluent English speakers and very friendly/helpful. Room a tad smaller than others and the shower cubicle definitely small but very clean and comfortable otherwise. Breakfast probably the least generous of all the hotels and tinned fruit rather than fresh not good. Still overall a pleasant stay
Beautiful location overlooking a valley. Owner was very welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was great. There's a pool which is nice to have especially with young children. not very central although this wasn't a problem for us as we had a car. Room was spacious and clean, overlooking a terrace with views.
Excellent location and very central to all the shops, restaurants, cafés and sites to see.
Apartment is spacious and has all the necessary items for a pleasant comfortable stay.
Only problem was the property does not own any parking of its own and there is free parking very close, however only if a spot is available. Parking restrictions are also in place around the area after 8pm so if you did have a spot in the above you have to now move your vehicle to avoid a fine. Property recommends a parking station around the corner, €2.50 day and €3 night rates. We used this service however disappointed as the advertisement when booking said "free parking".
