A lovely garden surronds the building and are maintained daily. The bedroom was also fairly big (and a very comfortable bed), with decent sized kitchen and bathroom.
We stayed in appartmant 8 for and were disappointed with the experience for the price. It's approximatley 5 mins walk to the beach and close naighbours were buildiing. Staff not particularly helpful, maybe because of the language barrier (we only speak English and French). Room was decorated for a little girl with pink polka dots on the tiles and pink walls in the hallway. It must have been a grand house but was re-done as a hotel on a budget. The kitchen cupboards felt really cheap and had nothing else for cooking but an electric hob. The fridge was making quite a noise, shutting the kitchen and bedroom doors filtered noise. Bathroom had a large corner bath. Water was slow to warm up, no hot water in kitchen. Below average breakfast.
The appartement was clean and good equipped. The top-level terras is very nice, but too hot during the day of course. Small kitchen. Garden is nice, but especially at night.
Environment of Fontane Bianche... it's not a very nice neighborhood. There's a big beach, but's it's not that nice. Lots of wind in the afternoon.. so if you have kids.. Also, there is not much to see/do at the location. Found just 1 resto and that one wasn't very good in terms of atmosphere. Also a problem: there is nobody to help you when you arrive. People are at the Hotel Villa Del Mare and there is no thing to warn them or something.
Everything was as presented in the hotel description.
Mosquitos in September. Mosquito repellant can be bought in a local shop at cost of 6Eur. Also, there is no internet; it would be useful to have.
The Hotel was very close from the beach. We were a bit disappointed about the cleanliness of the beach as it was only clean in July/August. Not many restaurants around so the mini kitchen comes very handy. In Avola you have a big supermarket even open late on Sunday! Or you can find small shops in the town nearby Cassibile.
The staff is very helpfull and nice. The hotel is well maintained in a quiet area and the rooms are nicely furnished. Beautyfull garden, enclosed free parking, complimentary breakfast. Gabriela even prepared home made pie and mandorla ice ream for us. Very nice.
Difficult to find, better take the side road allong the beach coming from the airport and not the highway exit as indicated in navigaton. It took us more than 1 hour to find the hotel at night. Coming from Germany we had to adopt to the small size of the roads and did not believe in the directions. The area around the hotel is not as nicely maintained as the hotel.
