#2 of 3 hotels in Mondello
The Splendid Hotel La Torre is to be found in Mondello, a part of Palermo still wrapped in the myths of the "belle-epoque" and which is located between an unexpected traditional fishing village and one of the most beautiful and fascinating beaches of the Mediterranean. However, Mondello is just a few minutes bus ride away from the city centre on the other side of the wide avenues of Favorita park. On the opposite side, a short stretch of motorway connects Mondello to the city airport of Falcone - Borsellino. It is therefore and ideal place for those who want to enjoy a completely relaxing holiday whilst still being conveniently close to the centre of Palermo and its extraordinary monuments. The " La Torre" complex is situated after the large semi-circular beach, just a few metres on the other side of the fishing village on a little promontory of which the hotel occupies the smaller part, overlooking the bay with its park stretching out in the opposite direction as far as the "Capo Gallo" coastal reserve. The hotel has a private garage watch over video 24 hours a day. foto hotel2Bathing Area: From June to September, this particularly noted Sicilian bathing area is open to the public. Here it is possible to do all aquatic sports (sailing, windsurfing, water-biking, motor-boating, diving, etc.) Hotel guests have exclusive use of the large, well-equipped sun terrace located immediately behind the cliffs. From their rooms they can directly access the beautiful sea-water swimming pool, they can use the whirlpool bath and the purpose-built platform down on the rocks which is ideal for taking dips into the sea.

All about the location. Sicilian sea and coast, access through beach and rocks, great swimming spot. Maintenance is less than ideal, needs serious refurbishment, and more professionalism from most of the staff. Special mention to the hotel’s pool staff: helpful and outstanding. Great destinations, also cost wise.

Brilliant 4 night stay overall, staff were very nice, location was excellent, close proximity to the beach and many restaurants. Spent much of our time at the pool where towels and loungers were provided. Nice but expensive bar and restaurant within. Rooms were exceptionally spacious and clean along with a nice balcony. Only negative was two single beds as a double and TV didn’t work very well. The views of Mondello from all parts of the hotel were magnificent.

There’s nothing really to complain about here, the rooms are spacious, quite modern and it’s all spotlessly clean. The communal areas may be slightly dated but they are spacious and the views from the terrace and the bar are amazing of an evening. There were no issues with the staff, all were friendly and accommodating. The only gripe I had was the policy of charging thirty euros for a 14yr old niece to visit for an afternoon. All she really had access to was the saltwater swimming pool (I have to admit that was a first for me too...!) as the red flag was up and the sea access gate was closed. Maybe a bit of common sense could be applied here?

Dear Mr Mayfairjack, thank you for your feedback. We are happy you appreciated the services. We are really keen to read them and get the best from your stay to tailor the experience around our guests. Regarding access to swimming pool for external guestss: 30 euros are related to INSURANCE we have to deal with for external clients (whose access it's very limited during rush days). Thus red flag or "half day" is not connected to the price. Moreover, the external access allow you to use both hotel facilities and the "stabilimento balneare" areas with other 2 salty swimming pool, wide spaces, solarium, bars etc. Hope to welcome you again! Best, Federica Guest Relations

We recently stayed at this hotel while on a week long trip to Sicily. We were due to stay in an AirBNB style place by elected to book a hotel so we could have gotten the amenities we were lacking from the AirBNB. When we arrived the gentleman at the front desk knew exactly who we were, only reasoning behind this was there was hardly anyone else staying there. We were booked in for two nights but were open to staying two more. We said if you could give us a deal on a nice room with a view we will stay two more days. And we got a firm “No, this is what you paid for” for being two of only a handful of people there (we saw two guys in the morning sitting outside and a couple by the pool in the afternoon and that was it for the time we were there) you would think they would like the extra business especially with tourism taking such a hit right now. Wouldn’t even give us a room with a better view other than the garbage bins. Walking to our room we realised it was in DIRE need of a renovation. Rooms were extremely outdated. At that point we were happy he didn’t offer us a deal to stay an extra two nights. Only one of us touched the breakfast, and I heard it was not appetising. Positives: The majority of the staff we interacted with were extremely friendly! The hotel is in a great location, you are still on the main strip in Mondello but enough out of the way you don’t hear all the noise. The pool area is also very nice, and you do get some amazing views.

We had a wonderful mini break at the end of June after the dreadful months spent in lockdown due to Covid. The hotel has direct and private access to the sea where you can swim off the rocks, and it is just a short walk from the bustling piazza and busy beach of Mondello. We had a sea front room from which we were able to enjoy the most amazing view (the sunrises were breathtaking!) The only noise we could hear were the boats sailing by. The bed was very comfortable and the room was spotless, even the linen was changed every day. The large terrace is perfect for evening drinks whilst watching the sun set over the sea. We had a delicious meal of fresh fish on one of the evenings (we preferred it to eating at the overcrowded restaurants in town). Right next to the hotel is the beautiful Capo Gallo nature reserve where we went for early morning walks all the way up to the lighthouse (a must for anyone who loves the outdoors). I would definitely recommend La Torre to sea lovers who want to unwind and relax away from the crowds.
