Giardino di Costanza Resort
How to Get There
Beautiful, modern hotel/spa/resort amid vineyards and farmlands, well away from the nearest town. Beautifully appointed large air conditioned rooms and spacious bathroom. Indoor and outdoor pools. Excellent restaurant and professional service throughout. The one minus: agonizingly slow wi-fi (under half mbs).
A warm, efficient welcome and a very comfortable room overlooking the fine gardens and outdoor pools. We slept well, dined and breakfasted very well and found it an excellent base to explore south-western Sicily.
We stayed for few days at the beginning of September. From the moment we arrived we were impressed.
The hotel looks like a huge private villa, giving a very special first impression, this is matched by the lovely friendly reception team who could not have been more helpful. We had originally booked a superior room, but had decided to downgrade to a standard room so we could have two adjoining rooms, we were certainly not disappointed. Our rooms were quite frankly huge, beautifully appointed, and spotlessly clean, and with the adjoining door it was like having our own private apartment.
The pool area is lovely, never over crowded even in early September, with plenty of places to avoid the sun if need be. The grounds are substantial and a lovely place to wander round, it’s so easy to find a place of your own to just sit and read un-disturbed for hours.
The restaurants were good, offering a great selection, the only thing to let them down was the wasps by the pool bar. I understand why the hotel likes to serve lunch there, but with the wasps it may have been better to offer an alternate, say back in the breakfast/main restaurant. As we were only half board, our trick was to order from the snack menu after 2pm, where we could eat at our sun lounger away from where the wasps were.
Overall, first class stay, and great value for money!!
Our room was large and lovely. The whole complex was pretty and vast, away from crowds and very pleasant to come back to after exploring surrounding areas during the day. The breakfasts were very complete and service was great. The large balcony with table and chairs was a wonderful bonus.
The Hotel is located approx 10k inland from Mazara and is surrounded by vineyards for as far as you can see. We flew into Palermo and hired a car, the drive to the hotel took approx 90 mins with breathtaking scenery. The room we had was spacious and had a balcony overlooking the restaurant and pool. The pool area had plenty of loungers with a bar and covered seating for food. There is also a Spa, descent gym and indoor pool. The staff were excellent in my opinion, engaging and helpful. We stayed half board and the food was not 5 star but still good, if fact we had lunch at the pool most days also. A trip to one of the many wineries in the region is worth the trip. This can be organised for you at reception.
