overpriced +doesn'’t offer all what is announced

  • 1 of 5

We stayed at Mondello for 2 nights at the end of our trip in Sicily. Mondello is definitely not the best place to stay in Sicily, very dirty and overpriced for what it has to offer. We do not understand why it is so well rated in some websites. However, we had chosen this accommodation based on the numerous good reviews and the criteria that would match our research like wifi, short distance to the beach, a garden with barbecue and a swimming pool.

When we arrived, we were showed the accommodation and it has been made clear that Giuseppe wanted the money as quick as possible, can understand but the way to ask it put the situation a bit awkward. We highly appreciated though that his wife took us around to show us Mondello and advised some restaurants and where to go.

Concerning the accommodation, it was not really clean. Lizard running out from the apartment when we opened the windows and small poops in the kitchen proved that it must be staying there for longer. The announce on the website said there was a wi-fi and a swimming pool, but actually there is was no wi-fi (Guiseppe then confirmed us that there was no signal, no way to connect) and the swimming pool was far from the accommodation and you had to pay for it. Also, the garden with barbecues was not really welcoming. Distance to the beach was round 30min by foot. Generally, we had an impression of old and not clean environment as nobody would take care.

The restaurants there are quite touristic (bad service as they don’t need to serve tourists twice), we tried the restaurant Sapori Di Mare Da Giovanni Mondello… We both then had a very bad food poisoning straight after the meal.

In conclusion, this accommodation was overpriced and didn’t offer all what was announced, but these criteria allow the owners to ask for more money, and we could feel that it was all what they were worried about…Not recommended!

Owner's Response: I would like to kindly reply to this review on the stay in Mondello and the apartment. First thing, the description of Mondello reflects a personal opinion, so I don’t want to go deep in the matter. The only thing I would like to say is that Mondello is a tourist beach place, which receives thousand of tourist every summer season and all the guests of the apartment have never expressed this opinion and I think that a two day stay is not sufficient to express this judgment and if some people consider themselves “special” or “arrogant”, I could suggest them another place to visit……. About the apartment, it was perfectly clean and due that it is surrounded by garden it could happen that small garden lizards or insects go in. The Wi-Fi is perfectly functional, obviously you have to be at home and ask for the password and I don’t remember receiving this request! Normally, when guests arrive to the apartment the rest of the money for the stay is given after they see the location and consign the identification documents for the registration, but I have never created problems if the money is received during the stay. In this case they offered to pay immediately. Also, I suggest to pay very more attention when reading the announce. There is absolutely not written that there is a swimming pool in the property. The swimming pool is mentioned in the description of the things in proximity of the apartment. In conclusion, I think that when you travel in other countries, you should leave your prejudices at home and be a little more opened of mind. So, I can surely not recommend this couple at other holiday house owners from other countries which is not their own, because they can’t adapt themselves in foreign regions.

Wunderschöner Urlaub in Mondello

  • 5 of 5

Vielen Dank für die schönen Urlaubstage! Wir hatten eine wunderschöne Zeit in Mondello.

Das Apartment ist sehr schön, groß und mit allem ausgestattet, was man so braucht. Es war alles sauber und wir wurden sehr gastfreundlich aufgenommen. Am Apartment hat uns besonders der Balkon (schmal, aber mit schönem Blick über den Garten) und die geräumige Wohnküche gefallen. Wir haben abends oft auf dem Balkon gegessen. Die Wohnung befindet sich im ersten Stock. Giuseppe und seine Frau wohnen im Erdgeschoss.

Giuseppe hat uns am Ankunftstag nach Absprache vom Flughafen abgeholt. Das war sehr komfortabel, da wir nicht über Palermo mit dem Bus fahren und das Apartment selber suchen mussten. Wir wurden am Ferienhaus von seinen Hunden (2 Labrador-Retriever) und seinen vielen Katzen begrüßt. Für Tierfreunde genau das Richtige!

Der Weg zum Strand und zum nächsten Supermarkt ist zu Fuß recht lang (ca. 25 min), mit dem Fahrrad oder dem Auto aber schnell zu erreichen.

Die Bucht von Mondello ist zum Baden herrlich. Das Meer ist, trotz der Nähe zu Palermo, sehr sauber. Wer Naturstände lieber mag, kommt bei den Felsen am Monte Gallo auf seine Kosten. Der Strand dort ist über eine private Straße zu erreichen, für die man einen kleinen Wegzoll bezahlen muss (Fahrrad 1€, Roller und Autos etwas teurer).

Mit dem Bus ist man in 30 min in Palermo. Von dort kann man z.B. mit dem Zug nach Cefalú fahren. (Zugfahrpläne gibts hier: http://www.trenitalia.com/)

Wir empfehlen das Apartment auf jeden Fall weiter!

Owner's Response: Ben and Anja were our guests in the apartment in Mondello during the month of september. They are two very nice and polite people. During their stay they respected the neighbourhood and treated the apartament like their own house and loved our two labrador dogs!They left the apartament in perfect order and very clean. I surely recommend them as guests and would rent to them again if they would come back to Mondello.

A wonderful place

  • 5 of 5


We loved the apartment very much. A beautiful villa over looking the surrounding mountains and gardens. It was easily found by car, provided secured parking, well located, clean, quiet and very comfortable. Our host were very friendly and generous with information regarding Palermo. We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend it any time.

Grazie mille Giuseppe

Owner's Response: Spero sempre di poter avere clienti come loro: persone simpaticissime ma anche il superlativo non è alla loro altezza. Tutti dico proprio tutti sia le ragazze che i loro rispettivi compagni oltre ad essere dei clienti li ho avuto come vecchi amici. Molto educati, rispettosi del vicinato, hanno lasciato l'appartamento in perfetto ordine e pulito. Mi auguro che se dovessero ritornare a Palermo scelgano la mia struttura, consiglio a tutti i proprietari che se dovessero essere contattati dalla Signora Dorotea o dal suo gruppo di amici di dare la massima precedenza alla loro richiesta di soggiorno. Cordiali e distinti saluti da Giuseppe, Miscell, Salvatore

Bello l'appartamento ma difficile da raggiungere

  • 3 of 5

Siamo stati nell'appartamento del Sig. LOCASCIO dal 21 al 30 di luglio

di quest'anno proprio nel periodo in cui a Mondello faceva un caldo mai sentito a detta dei palermitani. L'appartamento, ampio, ben tenuto, fornito di tutto quello che serve in una casa, si trova al piano terra di fabbricato molto più grande abitato dal proprietario e dai suoi familiari circondato da un bel parco con molti alberi di essenze differenti e recintato da mura.

La pace, la tranquillità, il silenzio crediamo siano le caratteristiche migliori, e non di poco conto, di questa sistemazione. A disposizione degli ospiti c'è una zona solarium con sdraie tavolini sedie e barbecue. Il complesso è situato su una delle colline che circondano Mondello, in località Partanna, e fortunatamente c'è la disponibilità di parcheggio per una macchina. Come già detto nel periodo in cui siamo stati il caldo era molto e il piccolo condizionatore situato nella zona soggiorno/cucina è risultato insufficiente.

Partanna è una zona sulla collina di Mondello dove sono state costruite ville, case, palazzi senza osservare piani regolatori, urbanizzazioni ecc. per cui risulta molto disordinata in particolare la viabilità. Per raggiungere l'appartamento bisogna percorrere una piccola e stretta strada che forse una volta era una mulattiera, ora asfaltata, dove a malapena passano due macchine ma poiché un lato è perennemente occupato da auto in sosta o da montagne di rifiuti, bisogna continuamente lasciare il passo a chi viene dall'altra parte. E' questo un problema perchè per arrivare al mare si impiegano più di venti minuti, impensabile raggiungerlo a piedi. Così come alla sera, una volta in casa non si esce più perchè nei dintorni non c'è niente, solo ville recintate o palazzi.

Owner's Response: La famiglia Trucchia nel periodo che sono stati ospiti presso la mia struttura, hanno subito, come d’altra parte tutti noi, un evento straordinario di caldo, che non si verificava da tantissimi anni. La zona dove è situata la villa è un comprensorio turistico, essa è circondata da tantissime ville tutte ben curate. Non vedo cosa centri l’aver giudicato tale sito privo di piano urbanistico. La strada dove è ubicata la villa è privata. Capisco l’insofferenza ma non l’ignoranza. In auto la spiaggia dista meno di un chilometro dall’appartamento, circa quattro minuti d’auto, se poi la Signora non riusciva a trovare posto per l’auto ad un palmo dal bagnasciuga della spiaggia, non era certo un problema mio! Di circa trentasette recensioni positive con il massimo dei voti ci sta che a qualcuno non piaccia. Pazienza! Se le persone partono già con uno spirito negativo penso sia meglio restarsene a casa anziché buttare i soldi al vento ed utilizzarli in altro modo. La vacanza è per rilassarsi e divertirsi. Criticare è giusto diffamare NO!!! Io nel mio piccolo mi sono messo sempre a disposizione dei clienti, ne è prova quei trentacinque che hanno recensito l’appartamento. Giuseppe Lo Cascio
