We are glad you loved our transfer service and the atmosphere in front of the sea. We are sorry you wanted to have a sort of vengeance because we couldn't accept your request of refund but as we explained you chosed a not refundable rate and the payment was done several days before so we were not able to do it. In any case, we couldn't refund you for the swimming pool because as you can read in the reservation page the swimming pool is officially open until the 1st of October. Then, we know that you had bad luck with the weather but the bad weather of course is not our fault... The days before your arrival there were a lot of violent storms (we told you by phone and you didn't mention it in your review) and during the first day of your stay of course you noticed the terrible storm that caused so many problem in Sicily (we invite you to read the articles of the damages in Sicily). The pictures you took of the swimming pool were of the first day after the storm before the intensive cleaning... If you would have waited for the afternoon, you have seen that it was perfectly clean because we care about our guests. Our reception staff speaks very well English, French and Spanish and also in low season we offer a lot of services: breakfast, free sport courts, free bikes, organization of daily trips and boat trips, city tours, solarium and access to the sea. We have to remove the wooden platform of the sea access of your photo because of the bad weather but there were other 3 accesses to sea that you could use and that you can even see from the private terrace with sea view of your bungalow. We can understand that you didn't want to post a photo of that view and we are sorry that you wrote things that are not true. The only part that in this period is not available is the changing rooms area (guests staying in the bungalow or in the apartments don't need it because that can change themselves in their rooms) and this is the reason why the white railing in your photo is not painted. Mondello is only 1 km far from us, in 45 minutes you can even reach Capo Gallo. Mondello is still plenty of tourists and maybe you visited it the day of the storm with of course less people. This weekend for example the was a public concert. You can reach Mondello by our FREE Bikes, by bus (bus stop in front of us) or reserving our transfer service. The picture you took with the white complex that you think is the hotel is the part of the complex (with a local history) in which there are just some apartments and the restaurant... The hotel is inside! We really hope you can come back so you could completely change your mind!

Beachfront hotel with quite spacious green territory, big swimming pool and delicious ice-cream in the bar. The beach consists of three parts and has enough sun beds for everybody at any time of the day. It was extremely beautiful to dance openair from sunset to sunrise,

My wife and I came to La Marsa as part of our honeymoon trip and it was overall a very nice stay. First of all, the staff did my wife a huge favor to help surprise me for my birthday (the day we arrived). They set up our bedroom with rose petals, a bottle of wine and huge

Hard to get into a shower with broken door knob
Poorly put-together sink, that sloshed water onto the floor because it angled back. Mildly clean
