I stumbled on this hotel because I couldn't find a place to stay further inland where I was working (Sicily doesn't have an abundance of hotels outside tourist areas) and it was a lucky find. It's on a piazza that overlooks the sea and with lovely views up the coast, with several restaurants and bars nearby. I was there in winter, but there seemed to be a variety of swimming options within walking distance. Parking was easy, but again not sure if that's because it was winter. My room was super clean and comfortable. The breakfast spread is very good for Italy. The free wifi worked well. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Castellamare is one of those somewhat messy Sicilian towns that grows on you as you explore its nooks and crannies.

Dear Marcopolo1964
Thanks for your kind words. Our location is really as you painted. We are in the historical center and just few steps far from the harbor. Around us you find the tipical Sicilian Restaurant or some places where to tast “pane cunzato”, “sfincione”, etc. thanks for your experience at Al Madarig Hotel*** with your special souvenir about our breakfast, our room and our staff.
You are always welcome to stay with us when your travels bring you this way.
Best wishes from all Al Madarig Staff.

Very well kept place on quiet square (Fall visit) near pedestrianized street and good restaurants. Large rooms, comfortable beds. Pillows harder than any others we had in Sicily Sheets changed every other day during our visit in shoulder season. Good breakfast with fresh fruit daily. Eggs of some sort each morning. Delicious cakes unfortunately ! Packed us box lunches for 4am airport departure. A/c needs to be requested by phone during this season. Excellent staff. Good laundry service also.

I can't say enough great things about this hotel. The room was spacious and clean and had adequate storage space and a minibar. Our king size bed was two twin bed mattresses together which is very common in Italy and not a problem. We had a sea view room and the view from our balcony was so enjoyable day and night. The hotel was quiet and the service was always wonderful. I only had the breakfast one morning and for free it was just fine. We loved Castellamare del Golfo and from this hotel you can walk all over the town. They had beach towels for rent at the front desk which was very convenient. The beach across the street isn't the cleanest but was convenient for a quick beach visit. We only had to pay for on street parking one time as we were usually able to get free parking right in front of the hotel. We hope to return to Sicily one day and will definitely stay again.

Room Tip: The sea view is worth it

Friendly, family run hotel by the bay. Rooms with excellent sea views and a nice bar and restaurant area. The rooms are modern, spacious and clean. The shower pressure was a bit lacking, and the breakfast did not have good cooked options, but otherwise ii had a very pleasant stay.

This was a wonderful hotel with ocean view rooms and a very short walk to a beautiful small beach. The room had all of the amenities and was quiet and very nice. It is located right on a nice piazza and in a central location. Short walk to great restaurants and shops. The breakfast included was very nice and complete with espresso, meats, cheeses, fresh fruits, pastries, etc. excellent place to stay on the water!
