The name of this hotel gives a very false impression ,not only is it not on the beach but the beach cannot be seen. An attempt to find this allusive beach found we were wired in and there was a railway line between the hotel and beach.
Our welcome to the hotel was less than satisfactory with reception staff being unhelpful.However things did improve it was evident that a manager had given some direction.
The restaurant in this hotel is more of a canteen,all self service and the range a quality of food was not up to Sicily's usual standard.However there was wine on tap ..a positive!! There is no alternative to eating here without own transport.
Our room was fine ,spacious and overlooking the pool area. The pool was large and clean. There was a pool side bar for after dinner drinks and some entertainment but no drinks served in the hotel.
This strikes me as a family hotel although if it rains as it did when we were there ,there is little for children to do

Room Tip: A room overlooking the pool

Gentili Signori,
VI informiamo che a partire dalla prossima stagione estiva 2016, la gestione dell’Hotel Selinunte è stata rilevata da Club Esse. Il resort verrà da noi gestito e commercializzato con il nome di Club Esse Selinunte Beach.

La potenzialità del nuovo Club Esse Selinunte Beach, unita al livello qualitativo della gestione Club Esse, che da sempre pone l’Ospite al centro del suo mondo, sono gli elementi essenziali che garantiranno il successo della gestione e la piena soddisfazione di tutti. Vi invitiamo pertanto a voler prenotare la vostra futura vacanza presso il Club Esse Selinunte Beach, o in qualunque altra struttura gestita da Club Esse per verificare di persona l’efficienza della nostra organizzazione.
A presto

My wife and I recently spent two nights in this hotel and never even managed to find out how far away the beach was, or how to get there. Apparently it is a considerable walk, involving the crossing of a railway line, or taking an infrequent and longer shuttle bus journey. One cannot actually see the sea from the hotel.
We were travelling by coach with a group of friends and the driver had trouble finding the place. It is right at the end of a residential or tourist complex that was never completed. For some reason it is surrounded by a fence (perhaps to keep the guests in but I’m not sure why; where is nowhere to escape to in the evening unless one has one’s own transport or pays through the nose for a taxi!).
Admittedly, the pool area is nice but you can only relax there if the attendants' choice of loud music is to your taste. In our case it wasn’t. Bizarrely, if you want a drink in the evening that is where you have to go, but bringing your drinks back into the hotel - out of range of the music - is frowned upon.
Food wise, it is buffet only, for both breakfast and dinner, and the choice of food is pretty typical of what is on offer in the many hundreds of 'beach' hotels in the Mediterranean - providing sustenance rather than satisfaction.
The bedrooms are just about OK; at least ours was clean. The only Wi-Fi available is in the lobby area and that is where parents seem to congregate in the evenings to use their tablets and laptops, while the children run riot.
We stayed in several hotels during our stay in Sicily, and this one was at the bottom of the list by a considerable margin.

Room Tip: I cannot advise

We stayed in this hotel for two nights during out trip in Sicily. The hotel is very well maintained, the rooms are clean and the staff are very friendly. From the rooms there is a wonderful view towards the sea. The prices are convenient.

We are a family of 5 and have just returned from a lovely 2 weeks in this hotel.
We were the only English speaking guests until the last few days and apart from Reception,English is not generally spoken by hotel staff however, it was all the more memorable and indicative of the friendliness and helpfulness of the hotel staff in general, when staff present in the restaurant 'pooled' their English to get the message accross to the head chef that one of our daughters was a vegetarian,who then produced a personal meal for her every lunchtime & in the evening, which he often delivered to the table himself.
The pool environment was superb and I have never encountered such an enthusiastic,energetic and talented entertainment team ,who did/arranged everything from 10am in the morning until late at night including; Yoga,Aqua Gym( with very catchy music/dance),water polo,football etc;then in the evening put on shows involving impressive dance,song,comedy sketches and even a fire show!
The beach is lovely and worth the time it takes to get transported there/walk, as I suspect that if it was not surrounded by a nature reserve, quite a lot of buildings would be built right next to the beach which would not necessarily make it better!
Inside the hotel is very nice however, the outside just needs repainting to give the right first impression etc.
Would certainly visit again if in a position to do so.

I stayed at the hotel with my wife for summer vacation between 6th and 13th of July 2014. At first we were slightly taken aback by the not-so-fresh outside look of the hotel and the fact that it seemed in the middle of nowhere. However, the hotel is overall clean and tidy with daily room service. Nevertheless, the walls have seen better days and could use another coat of paint. We stayed in the 4xx/5xx block of the hotel.

The main drawback of what the hotel has to offer are the meals. Although there is a variety of dishes to choose from, there was never really that stood out from the crowd nor was anything really delicious. Except for very fresh and juicy watermelons. One can expect two kinds of meat and two or three kinds of pasta for lunch and dinner, and many side dishes including both fresh and fried vegetables, potatoes, different kinds of cheese, etc. For sure it's enough to have a full and healthy meal, including dessert, but the quality was hit and miss.

This is, however, where the drawbacks end. The pool area is large enough to fit all the guests with many deck chairs. The water is clean and there are lifeguards around. The bar is right next to the pool area with a selection of soft and alcoholic drinks. There are no fresh juices, however and one can't expect the highest quality of alcoholic beverages.

The hotel has also a reserved beach area a 15 minute walk away from the hotel. There are, however 'shuttle buses' (i.e. melexes) driving guests half the way to and from the beach several times after and before meals. They can't reach the beach itself since it's part of the natural reserve and no vehicles are allowed. The beach area is also equipped with enough deck chairs for everyone and the sandy beach is relatively quiet as there is only one other hotel-reserved area with very few 'external' beachgoers who prefer to stay near the village of Marinella.

The village itself is around half an hour away on foot but taxis can be also called to the hotel at affordable prices, especially if shared with other guests. There are several restaurants but almost no shops. There is also an excellent ice cream place at the waterfront.

To sum up, the hotel offers a very pleasant place to spend a week of two with a very nice, helpful staff and a lively and energetic animation crew.

Room Tip: Rooms 4xx and 5xx are in the area of the hotel which does not overlook the pool which makes for a poorer view but a quieter setting.
