La Pineta Park Hotel
Ranked #6 of 14 Hotels in Erice
Reviewed 24 April 2013

It rained almost constantly during a two night stay, but the views were always stunning and the room comfortable enough. I agree with other reviewers who say the place could do with a little TLC, but for the price we paid we really could not complain. It has parking spaces on-site, good wifi near the reception area, and is a few steps away from everything in the small hill town of Erice. The restaurants in Erice are mainly geared to daytripping tourists, but there are some excellent places down the hill in Trapani (parking along the harbour front). The hotel breakfast was just OK - the orange juice was squash though. A bit odd in 2013, and adding to the feel that nobody has updated things much here for a few years. Some reviewers have complained of not being warm enough off-season, but our room had three different forms of heating and extra blankets, so we were fine (it's high altitude location means it's a few degrees cooler in Erice than in Trapani). A bit plus were the staff - unfailingly helpful and pleasant. Some previous reviewers have complained at not getting help carrying luggage down all the outdoor staircases that lead to the rooms, but we had no problem.

Room Tip: Email ahead to ensure you get a terrace with a view.

The big draw here is access. The village of Erice is a MUST SEE but most of the reasonably priced hotels are more difficult to get to than La Pineta. Our first room was not so great as the heat wasn't working well but they moved us to a better room with a nice view and heat. The rate was good and the staff was very nice.

Room Tip: Look at the room before you accept it, some are much better than others.

Wish we had some of these reviews before booking! Like a few others Erice is not a great place for overnight stays since its cold & damp on a great day ( at sea level!!). The hotel itself is clean enough but lacks any charm and the room we got had no view at all which is amazing given the location. Our room was a long way from the car park and no offers to help with bags; woulndnt normally need help but with a baby you do have a lot of stuff!

Room Tip: day trip only!

Stayed here for 2 nights in March.

After conquering the hilly roads to Erice, the hotel is easy to find being well signposted. Parking was no problem.

The rooms are individual detached rooms in a woodland setting, each with own door. Many of the rooms we saw did not seem to have any real view (I do not count a wall as a garden view). We requested a different room with a view and were accommodated, so eventually we did have a room with a fabulous view.

Apparently this March was colder than usual. We arrived to freezing temperatures and high winds. Although our room had a nice terrace and view, it was of no benefit due to the weather.
The room was absolutely freezing, even with a fan on all night and 3 blankets, I never really warmed up.

The rooms themselves are quite small, a little old and could do with a some love and updating. The bathroom was small and the shower tiny - I think perhaps the smallest shower I ever saw. The overall resort was a little lacking in atmosphere.

Breakfast was fine. We also had dinner in the evening - set menu part of a deal. It was average. There was plenty of food anyway and it was hot.

The staff were very helpful in terms of tourist advice and friendly with reasonably good english and accommodated us allowing us to look at many different rooms.

I would not recommend this hotel off season. But, I think that the experience would have been very different if the weather was warmer and at a busier time of year. With a bit of sunshine I am sure the rooms would have seemed rustic and charming, and some more people there would have added to the atmosphere.

We agree with dmroxox's review in large measure. Our room was #14 and looked out over Trapani. It too was small and the bathroom's shower was tiny. Nonetheless, we had a great visit and the room was clean and comfortable. It had the best bed of all the places we stayed during our 12 day visit to southern Italy. The breakfast buffet was good but not like our fabulous breakfast in Montepertuso. Would recommend this hotel to others.

Room Tip: Ask for either a Trapani view or one overlooking the sea.
