Reviewed yesterday NEW

We have just spent a week here and were hugely disappointed that we spent over £3000 on such a mediocre holiday. There were some positives - the building is magnificent, housekeeping was excellent and a few individual members of staff tried really hard to provide good service. But the location works against a decent experience because, unless you're prepared to...

Spacious, high ceilings, terraces, gardens, impeccable staff, in short, the Edwardian sea view hotel par excellence. And there is an interesting art deco reception room that is freely visitable. But our room was gloomy and could do with some thought and investment in the bathroom. WC worked once every 6 hours, after a lot of strenuous pumping. The bath had...

We stayed at Igiea and were please upon arrival to be upgraded to a deluxe suite overlooking the bay. The room was charming and very well kept. We stayed for two nights and didn't want to leave. We plan to return. Breakfast was incredible and the dinner restaurant was A plus. I highly recommend!

After a relatively short flight from Heathrow, we landed on the sunny island of Sicily. A taxi ride from Palermo airport to the Hotel 35 minutes or so away. The Staff are amazing - immediately Giovanna welcomed us to the Hotel and quickly dealt with our booking in. We were shown our Superior room. Very comfortable. Nicely furnished and light....

This was our second stay at this gracious and atmospheric property, which is a real oasis of calm amidst the bustle of Palermo. One again, we particularly appreciated the lovely terraces and gardens, the spectacular views, the quality of the restaurant (both for breakfast and dinner), and the very welcoming staff.

This hotel reminds me of a venerable ocean liner ! Lovely setting; delightful restaurant and bar terraces; great gardens; swimming pool. Slightly worn interior eg a handle missing here; a piece of veneer missing there; small creaking lift but you have to forgive all that ! The "crew" are terrific, helpful and very friendly. The rooms are spacious. Who cares...

The Grand Hotel Igiea has a reputation among the locals as very expensive, it is. Behind the walled exterior the building is elegant and aristocratic. From the sea facing side of the hotel the sea views are varied in the division of a beautiful ocean to the left and to the right the industrial working port. I mention this as...

Villa Igiea is a top class, old fashioned Grand hotel, long wide marble corridors, smart old style rooms. Our first few hours had some problems but the front desk staff responded extremely well, upgraded our room to a lovely sea view room on third floor and, ten out of ten for this, gave us a small bedroom to use from...

Elegant, old world with every comfort. Overlooking the Marina, outdoor terrace for dining is wonderful. Convenient complimentary shuttle into town - very helpful front desk and concierge. This hotel has a long history of hosting dignitaries - it's elegance is amazing.
