Very well maintained hotel, with modern rooms and yet the charm of the past travelling in luxury. Staff were all excellent. You are pampered right from check in! Views from the rooms overlook the harbour and well manicured gardens. Large patios and walkways to take in the scenery, bar and lounge is stunning - great service and attention.

Hotel's Favourite
A wonderful hotel, truly 5 star from the quality of the rooms, staffing and service to the overall property. A historic hotel fantastically renovated. There is no beach or access to the sea for swimming (just for boats) but the pool is very nice with a great poolside restaurant. We spent a week here and were very happy with our choice. We had dinner in the terraza/bar almost every night. It seems to be the new place to be and be seen in Palermo which made it great fun. There's plenty to do in and around Palermo and the Villa Igiea is the perfect base.

A perfect weekend gateway in November to enjoy some Sicilian sun and culture! This former Palazzo has been completely refurbished by Rocco Forte and the result exceed my expectations. From the lobby to the rooms, passing by the restaurant Florio and the bar, all details are perfectly matching and creating a unique atmosphere between legacy, luxury and home feeling. The quality of services is outstanding! They give to the hotel a Sicilian soul with an unparalleled quality... The food and cocktails are delicious...

We stayed two nights at the end of a wonderful trip to Sicily. The hotel is spectacular. A recent remodel has resulted in meticulous attention to all details. The grounds are pristine. Rooms are immaculate. All of this is matched with impeccable service. We ate one night in the restaurant and the next in the bar. Food at both was superb. (Recommend the salt baked sea bass) Good weather allows for breakfast on the patio with a great view of the city harbor. Hotel runs regular shuttle service into the historic center of the city which is very convenient otherwise a taxi is needed. We kept our rental car at the hotel and only used it for excursion to Monreale.
