Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay with a gorgeous Seaview. Your staff was always kind and helpful, the garden grounds are immaculate, the room well designed and very clean, the atmosphere was calming, the food was always delicious, and the pool and beach were absolutely perfect. You can tell that lots of effort, thought and love is put into Villaggio il Gabbiano ❤️

Me and my family stayed almost a week here. The hotel itself was a typical 3 star hotel, which is great. The rooms were clean, and the beach is right in front of it, and that’s all I can say about the good things. The breakfast is out of question...everyday the same and mostly cakes, the tables are dirty, one day the juice was rotten...so it was awful. As for the pool, I was pretty pissed, because it’s only open about 7 hours a day and you have to wear swimming cap. Talking about the beach the safety is weird, I mean If the sea is a little bit wavy, swimming is prohibited even if you want to swim at your own risk, so you have to walk away from the hotels beach at these time to do whatever you want...but if the weather is not windy the lifeguard is sitting back to the sea. After all if you still think it’s worth for a sea view room, you are wrong. Do not choose it if you want to rest, because the music is so loud till midnight, that you have no chance to sleep. And what was really funny is that besides the receptionist, who can barely speak English, no one can at the hotel, not even at the Gelateria or the animators.

We had been here seventeen years ago and returned 2 weeks ago — still comfortable and welcoming. Many people find this spot by accident but since we have family in the area, we have been aware of this hotel for a long time. The rooms are comfy, the food so delicious and the beach great. If you are driving between Messina and Palermo and are looking for a relaxing spot off the beaten track, this is for you. Have a granita in the bar for me, Yum!

We stayed in the hotel for 2 night. Nice room with air conditioning. Lovely private beach,the food was very nice plenty of fresh fish. The only thing was the music.. the entertainment was on at night and it was a little loud but finished at midnight.. but the Italians loved it.. I would recommend to go on low season to miss it

Dropped in purely by chance looking for lunch - hotel has basically closed for the season but was warmly welcomed and an excellent seafood lunch provided - to the background of a deserted beach! Deserves more business - visit!

This hotel just popped up in the middle of nowhere! Amazing!! The grounds and pool were really nice and there were lots of kids and families and it seemed like organized activities (Aqua aerobics, etc) As a point of interest the staff speak very little (almost no) English but they are very friendly and helpful even to Italian beginners!!

Although we found a recommendation somewhere for this hotel restaurant, but were not impressed. It is on the main street, easy to find and has quite big parking on the side. The bar of the hotel is quite busy, so not necessarily easy to park. We were seated at the window, so could enjoy the sunset. The restaurant is mainly servicing the hotel guests that are there on the half/full board basis. Hence, they get most of the attention of the 2 waiters. Insalata caprese was OK, mixed seafood antipasti was good, mixed grill of seafood was good, pesce spada(swordfish) was somewhat dry.

It's been a couple of summers since we stayed at Il Gabbiano...but I remember it very clearly and fondly. My husband and I and 2 teenaged children had toured throughout Italy from Venice to Sicily throughout that trip. Upon arriving in Sicily we drove directly to Terme Vigliatore to Il Gabbiano. What a pleasure to find a clean spacious suite, (separate bedrooms for parents and children)with a wonderful restaurant, great beach and welcoming pool. Everyone made us feel most welcome and we were able to relax on the beach after our hectic weeks sightseeing. A wonderful seafood restaurant was across the street a way and a lovely brick walkway along the ocean made for wonderful 'passegiatas'. A bar at the front of the hotel served great panini and gelato. In a small Sicilian town on the north shore of Sicily not far from Milazzo. Great spot.
