Equipped with very nice relaxation areas, the Zagarella and Sea Palace is a good choice for a sojourn with your family. This hotel is also recommended for its various accommodation possibilities. In return, it is located on the seashore, but it does not offer any beach.

    Location 3.0 /10

    Located on the oceanfront, 2 miles away from the village of Santa Flavia. To reach the hotel from Palermo airport (located 30 miles away), allow a 45 minute drive.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    Out of the 357 rooms of the Zagarella and Sea Palace, 200 overlook the pool and the sea. The others overlook the gardens. The rooms of the main building offer a balcony: it is a pity that the latter is really small and that it does not offer any particular furniture. As for the decor, simplicity reigns everywhere: blue tiled floors, beige walls and marine blue bedspreads. The amenities include air-conditioning, mini-bar, telephone and TV. The bathroom has a shower or a bathtub, and a hair-dryer.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    A large complex built in 1982 and renovated in 1999, the Zagarella and Sea Palace is composed of a main five-level building, below which you can find several rows of bungalows. While the architecture of the main building is quite basic, (a beige concrete building), the bungalows are really nice: rows of villas with red tiled roofs overlook the sea, surrounded by palm trees, cypress trees and rose-bays. If you are not afraid to use a few stairs to get to the restaurant or to the pool, you had better stayed here. This way you can avoid the relatively dark hallways in the main building and the sad-looking decoration in the reception area (beige and black marble floor, white ceilling, varnished wooden counter). As for relaxation areas, two pools are available. The first one - located at the hotel's level - is the most crowded, even though its solarium is quite small. If you want to stay in a quieter area, you should suntan near the second pool located at sea level. There you will enjoy the same facilities (deckchairs and sunshades), but you will have more space available to relax.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The restaurant is fitted out with round tables for six people in a room with a low ceiling that is quite dark. You can make up for this for lunch at the outdoor snack bar at the verge of the pool. With its large square sunshades and chairs fitted out with cushions, this place is by far the nicest place in the hotel where you can have a sandwich, a salad, a pizza or a hot-dog. As for eating, the breakfast buffet offers cereals, buns, cooked meats, cheese and scrambled eggs. The dinner buffet offers a nice selection of mixed salads, a few hot courses (pasta, fish and meats with sauce) and pastries, cremes and fruit mousse for dessert.

    To know

    A hotel animated from June to September, the Zagarella and Sea Palace offers sportive activities (gym, aerobics), shows and a club for children aged 4 to 10 during this period. It is thus particularly recommended for families during summer time. The rest of the season, it will fit all those seeking to relax without being ''captive'' in the hotel. A free shuttle goes to Santa Flavia's city centre 4 times a day. From here, you can get a train to get to Palermo or to Cefalu. The Zagarella and Sea Palace also offers 18 rooms fitted out for people with disabilities in the hotel area. Restaurant, pool, living-rooms and TV room are accessible by ramps. In return, the bungalow part, that stretches out on several levels and is served by stairs, is reserved for people who do not have health problems. Careful, even though the establishment is located on the verge of Porticello bay, it does not have any beach. The access to the sea is by ladder. For leisure, you can find deckchairs and sunshades on the flagged sundeck that overlooks the sea. For sports breaks, a nautical club offers windsurfing, kayak, pedalo and water ski for a fee.
