“Really enjoyed our stay. A car is a must! Bring an eye mask.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2012

After thorough research we decided on this hotel. The hotel is very nicely decorated. The only downfall to the decor is the glass door for the bathroom. If someone needs to use the bathroom in the middle of the night the light is bright enough to wake the others in the room. An eye mask could solve that problem. The buffet "special dinner" was not that great. The worst for me is that we had a late check in - after 9 p.m. and the front desk told us about the dinner. We arrived because the front desk told us that it was still available - we didn't even ask about it -and the waitstaff had to scramble to pull out a table for us and then the food was not replenished and we were left unsatisfied and still hungry. The breakfast was great and sufficient. I would stay here again and not participate in the special dinner especially because there is a restaurant right near the hotel that is reasonably priced and quiet good. The pools are great as are the bathrooms outside. The staff will want you to put all purchases on your room which was annoying one time because I didn't want to. We traveled by car to Palermo, Mt. Etna and Corleone. I recommend a rental car if you stay here as there isn't much to do near the hotel.

Dear amyknows, we are pleased that you chose our hotel for your vacation. Thank you for appreciating the hotel’s interior design, where each detail is taken into consideration. It’s of vital importance to choose the right material keeping intact balance between beauty and utility.
It’s great to know that you enjoyed your breakfast, although, it’s a pity that you arrived too late for dinner to appreciate the variety of dishes and food quality. We are glad that you tried local Sicilian food and we hope that next time you stay in our hotel you’ll visit any of the two hotel’s restaurants. The staff try to do their best to guarantee a carefree stay to our guests, charging for the services at the time of checkout. Anyway, a client is free to pay the service at any time he/she wants.
The hotel’s location allows you to enjoy the peacefulness and natural beauty of the surroundings. You can walk to the archaeological site Solunto or visit the wine cellar “Cantine Corvo”, although renting a car might be your best option for independent exploring.
Thank you for your time to leave us your comment and you are always welcome to visit us again.

The decor and style of the hotel is cool. Very different. However we found the staff unhelpful. They seemed to tolerate guests. Also the dinner options were not good quality (either the buffet or the a la carte)

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2012

Got to stay here last minute for a wedding. The reception staff were incredibly helpful (thanks Luigi) in sorting me out. Spent a couple of very relaxing days by the med, swimming in the salt water pool and jumping into the Med off the sun terrace. The rooms were lovely but probably about right for the price. As a place to hang out it was fantastic.
Only downside was the breakfast was disappointing. I didn't eat at the restaurant otherwise.
Also you probably want a car as walking anywhere from the hotel is to take your life in your hands and the road covered in rubbish.
I'd advise spending most of your time looking out the back of the hotel at the sea cold Peroni in hand.

On paper this hotel has it all, beautiful location and nicely fitted out facilities. However for us it was probably not the best choice. (We're a fairly independant couple just looking for a couple of days by the pool to relax after a busy 10 days pounding the streets of Sicily's towns)

The villa room was beautiful and clean, and the hotel had lots of facilities however it seemed more geared up for people wanting a 2 week pool holiday who already have a car.

The food was good but expensive (again, think of a captive audience happy to just pay the tab at the end).
And the music. Umm, think cheesy elevator music all day and night in the main pool area which must be disturbing for those in the main hotel. If you can't handle that, head down to the lower pool where they play brilliant jazz classics instead and the music can't be heard if you book a villa room.

The hotel is located in a very quiet area about 20mins from Palermo Centrale station but is a further 1km walk down the road. We called ahead to get a sense of how long it would take to walk from the station and were pleased and surprised when the hotel said they'd send the car round to pick us up. It turned out to be an old man in a minibus who then demanded 10euros when we got to the hotel - we didn't appreciate that this wasn't a courtesy car when we called, it would have been good for the hotel to be clear about this upfront. On the return trip it took us about 10mins to walk back, so I'd recommend walking if you only have light luggage.

Overall it's a nice hotel but not the relaxing, low key resort we were expecting.

Room Tip: Book a Villa room for a more peaceful stay.

We are happy that you’ve chosen our hotel for your getaway break. Our guests’ comments are highly appreciated as providing high-quality customer service is at the top of our concerns.
The most convenient way to reach us is to book a taxi from the Airport of Palermo to the hotel with our partner for a special price of € 60 one way for 2012. If the client decides to take a train, we can assist in arranging transportation from the Railway Station to the hotel calling a local taxi driver, but the service price is not guaranteed. We are so glad that you have tried some dishes in our restaurant. Guests staying in our hotel can choose between a table-service and buffet restaurants, both serve best quality food at a reasonable price. Our guests are free to pay either in the restaurant after each meal or at the reception upon departure. We try to do our best to meet different tastes of all our guests. The hotel`s music distribution system plays various pieces of music and it's automatically turned off late in the evening not to disturb our guests' night`s rest.
We are very glad that you’ve appreciated our exclusive villas and we hope to have you as our guests again in the future.

Dear lyu g, thank you very much for your comment. We are glad to know that you’ve enjoyed your stay at the Domina Home Zagarella. One of our design objectives was to create a perfect holiday destination on the basis of the hotel geographical location. The rocky coast attracts those who enjoys swimming in crystal clear sea water. Sicily’s coastline varies a lot and one can find a sandy beach just a few minutes’ drive from the hotel.
We’ll be happy if you decide to visit us again in the future.
