Literally translates to “The Beautiful Island” but is in fact not an island! Isola Bella is a rock situated near Lido Mazzaro and is connected to the beach via a thin strip of land, accessible only when it is not covered in water. At those times, hire a boat to get to the Island/ rock and enjoy a few hours of hiking and exploring the rock. It is also home to an old house that was built in 1800s by a Scottish woman. Hiring a boat is a great idea in more ways than one – first things first, a boat tour around the rock will give some of the best views of endless sea and rock as well a chance to explore the hidden caves!

Isola Bella is also called as “Pearl of the Ionian”. Home to various sea birds and exotic plants, it is declared a natural reserve and is under maintenance of WWF – World Wide Fund for Nature.

  • What a gem of a hotel! Perched in a most beautiful spot, with exceptional views of Isola Bella! We recently stayed twice at this hotel, it was so good the first time that we returned again the following week for another stay. The hotel is run by the most amazing efficient staff. Giuseppe and Francesco, two of the best managers we have ever come across! So helpful, full of information, tips and assistance. Always pleasant, from first thing in the morning to last thing at night! A fine example of how a hotel should be run. The breakfast was excellent by Italian standards, the best scrambled eggs we've tasted! The selection was vast and made for a truly enjoyable start to the day. Views from this Hotel are incredible, from the terraces to the rooftop rooms to the the swimming pool. It may be the one hotel room you never want to leave. We cannot wait to return! A tremendous thank you to the staff for providing the best experience we've had, out of many in this beautiful country of Sicilia! Chris & Chris.

  • 3*????? Where are the 3*...I couldn't find them...1* it fits perfectly...but 3*!!! I suppose that the hotel owner he is close family of the Mafiosi in the town hall and this is the reason of 3*. If you are working in a old industry remains...this is your hotel!! Air conditioner it's like a truck crossing through your room. Breakfast less than mediocre, shower for hobbits...

  • Very simple. My son stayed in room 87 had a very tiny shower but for a single man it was all that one would need. I would definitely stay here again. The staff were more than accommodating.

  • The hotel is a bit old, the doors are loosening and the noise of the traffic a bit high... but the view more than amazing!

  • My single room over looked the beach and main road. Basic room, however this was reflected in the price and served the purpose for my stay. Friendly staff, good selection of breakfast with breakfast terrace overlooking the beach.
