Unforgettable days... a huge flat with an amazing balcony and a wonderful sea view...I still wake up thinking about all that calm and gorgeous light blue in front of me, like during my holiday at Residence Sabbie Doro. Miss Paula and her family are really kind and willing...they gave us useful informations about places to visit and where to eat. We have booked the ship to reach riserva dello Zingaro e San Vito Lo Capo where the best beaches are situated. They have also organized a big party with american relatives and other guests of the residence, the day before our departure. I really suggest this place to all those who love the sea and the good company.
Sono stati giorni indimenticabili, enorme appartamento con terrazza vista mare... la mattina mi sveglio ancora pensando di avere tutto quell'azzurro calmo e seducente davanti ai miei occhi come nella settimana al Residence Sabbie Doro. L'ospitalità e la simpatia di Paola e dei suoi figli, che gestiscono gli alloggi e i rapporti con i turisti, è disarmante; io e i miei 2 amici abbiamo ricevuto informazioni utilissime sui posti da visitare, dove mangiare, come prenotare la barca che porta alle vicinissime e meravigliose spiaggie e calette della riserva dello Zingaro e San Vito Lo Capo. A sorpresa anche una grande festa con parenti americani e altri ragazzi ospiti al Residence la notte prima della partenza. Consiglio questo posto agli amanti del mare e della bella compagnia!
"Wonderful place, very helpful hosts and awesome hospitality!"

We had such an amazing time there. The place was very nice, and we were so good taken care of. The hosts helped us with getting settled in well, helping to rent scooter and help us find our way around. They had many good suggestions on what to see and do, and even helped us get to the airport when we found out that there was no bus or train available. Thank you so much for your family mindset. Amazing!

Owner (Paola) of the residence is great. She is kind, helpful and keeps smilling all the time:)
The residence has everything you need on vacation. It is placed on a small hill, so it gives you a nice look to the sea.
The beach is sandy and wonderfull! If you like diving, a lot of great places for it are only few km away.
The residence is not far away from many interesting places on Sicily.
There is nothing I did not like about the stay.

A very beautiful place to stay at with friends or family! It`s easily accessible from Palermo`s Punta Raisi international airport. The location is quiet, immersed in a blooming garden, the rooms are nicely decorated in Sicilian style and have a sea view (stunning!!). It takes an about 7 minutes walk to get to the beach.
Castellammare del Golfo has a vivid nightlife and offers a big choice of restaurants, bars and discos, suiting most of the demands for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

We had an amazing time here. Incredible sea and mountain views. If you are looking for a real sicilian experience, this is the place. Great location for beaches and just a short drive to town. Paola is extremely helpful and accommodating for whatever your needs may be. We will definitely come back!

This part of our trip was the best! The apartment and the grounds were beautiful and Paola and her family were so inviting and a pleasure to spend time with. We were able to see so many parts of the town and surrounding towns. We would return and highly recommend without hesitation! Thank you Paola :)

Loved Sciliy and lots to see and do in and around Casttlamarre del golfo. Poala was the perfect host and made our stay very specail. Would recommend thinking of hiring a car if you don't want to rely on the bus service. Buses stop running about 7pm so difficult to get back to appartment from town. Poala was able to arrange a driver, we were a group of 7, for the day which was great as really got about and saw loads. Thank you Poala and family for looking after us so well.
"The authentic Silcilian Experience, great food, weather and food"

Sabbie Doro Residence was a truly authentic Sicilian experience - great food, sun and warmth of the host's where spectacular!! One thing I would recommend is transport as we went with out a car and commuting into the local town Castellamare after hours is impossible as the bus service is only operative till 6-7pm. Yet it's doable to see all the local sights by bus, and boat - just can't be so spontaneous being out of the local town town.

Staying at Sabbie Doro in Castellammare with Paola's extraordinary hospitality was an intensely pleasurable and memorable experience for my husband and myself. The accomodation was most comfortable, the view from the little terrace was grand, and Paola herself was endlessly welcoming and helpful. Through her intervention we really got a true taste of Sicilian cuisine, the lovely beaches, the local and more distant points of interest, as well as the social and cultural life.
"a place to experience authentic unspoiled sicilian warmth and be"

A group of five women, we booked and stated our needs in advance.
every attention was given to us with generosity. We are a group who like to
walk and visit sites on historical interest.
We had punctual transfers from the airport, we received a very welcome
meal prepared on arrival. The accommodation was clean and adequate for
our needs but a little crowded with 5 mature women!
Without a car we soon found our way around with local transport - but we
had to be ready to walk the ten minutes to the station and to wait for
transport to arrive.
we felt we were in an unspoiled area and met very few other tourists which
suited us perfectly. We probably did not expect to see a beautiful bay with
miles of sandy beach and few other people using it.
we had great healthy meals in the area and lots of lovely wine and will all
return to Sicily.
