Residence Villaggio Petruso - Balestrate
Ranked #2 of 4 Hotels in Balestrate
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 September 2017 via mobile

This villaggio has one absolute plus: the pool with stunning view. The apartments are nice too, although apparently visitors usually dont use the kitchen in the apartment to cook. Pans had never been used and essential kitchen equipment was missing. Only the apartments close to the pool have nice terraces with a similar view. The apartments further downhill dont. Personell is very friendly and helpful. The surroundings of the villaggio aren't really that nice. And it is a bit of a walk downhill to get to the sea. Balestrate is a pretty dull town. Castellammare is much more characteristic.

We came for a familiy holiday and had a great time. Villaggio Petruso is a quiet place surrounded by mountains and sea. It has a swimmingpool with enough beds, a little playground for children and a bar that serves great coffee, ice creams and cornetti. The restaurant was a big plus for us, as we have small children and few possibilities to go out: the chef is a master! The appartments were spacious and there was airconditioning (very important as in Sicily it gets really hot during summer).

Our stay at Villaggio Petruso was wonderful. Rosaria, along with her staff, Loredonna, Elisa, Giovanni and Lorena, made our family reunion perfect. The hotel has been fully renovated and the pool and open air restaurant is well-situated overlooking the spectacular Sicilian coastline. Our family ate several meals at the hotel and the food was amazing. The chef even made special meals for our mother. Our family spent over two weeks at the viiaggio. The villaggio's air conditioning and overall great service made our stay very comfortable during the extreme Sicilian heatwave we experienced this past August. This is the second time that we've stayed at Villaggio Petruso, and we will happily stay there again. Grazie per tutto, Rosaria!

This is the place for you if you are looking for people who care that you are having a good stay and if you are looking for an updated and clean environment. Food at the hotel restaurant was excellent. We ate several nights here and truly was the best food! The outdoor atmosphere is relaxing and beautiful. The sunset will take your breath away and never disappoint you. We spent 2 weeks in August this year, very hot, thank goodness for their excellent AC! If you are staying on this side of the island I recommend staying here 100%

Our stay at Villaggio Petruso was unforgettable. It was a family vacation with all coming from different locations. At one time reaching 21 relatives. The hotel staff couldn’t have been more accommodating and pleasant. Very helpful with arranging tours and drivers. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Beautiful pool, lovely sunsets, good food and wine. The outdoor dining was delightful and relaxing. This made our trip to Sicily memorable. One could tell the owners took pride in their establishment.
