Straight back from a short one night trip to Sicily, Selinunte last weekend.
Stayed for the first time in the Grand Hotel Selinunte, B&B 56.-- EURO´s, not to expensive.
First the positive things:
-The staff was friendly and helpfull, graded me up to a top-floor sea-view room without further questions.
- Quiet location, good views to the coastline.
- Breakfast-buffet was small but ok for my personal needs (delicious small,bread rolls, fruits, no eggs or else)
Negative:
If you travel by car, calculate some extra time to find the location, no signs on the main road to Selinunte nor on the touristic map in the city center.
I stopped on a small hill after 20 minutes drive around and located the hotel from there, find my way through the small streets.
The location is too far from the small city to walk, also IMO 30 minutes to walk to the nice beach, quiet but nothing else around.
The typical, italian private party sunday night in the hotel lobby, loud and no place for me to have a drink.
Only shower, no bathtub.
The hotel is new but the interior is really old-fashioned, not stylish and sure no Grand-Hotel.
IMO the main reason to built this hotel for the investors is to serve the tour groups on visit to Selinunte, only a small number of larger hotels in this area of western sicily.

I have waited a few days to do this review, to balance my opinion.

This hotel takes itself very seriously indeed. I was put off at the beginning at check in. The staff were pleasant, but condescending. When I asked for the password for the WiFi, the receptionist looked at me and explained that it was a little complicated. If I would hand her my tablet, she would do it for me ! Surprised, I did so. She put in a search and then some passwords and handed rhe laptopmback to me to complete a long form, requiring more personal details, than I was happy to supply. She then put in a final password and said I was ready to surf. The hotel could monitor every site I visited and I could see a clock, timing my access. Each day, I had to go through a complicated procedure to re-gain access. It loked like an old fashioned form of 'dial up', I haven't seen for years. The majority of the guests while I was there were large German coach tour parties. The hotel charges 5 euros, to drop you in town. They have a free shuttle to what they call a, 'private' beach. I never saw a private beach in the area, but in the Nature Reserve, beside the harbour, which has about 7 kilometres of beautiful soft golden sand - which is a public beach - several of the large hotels in the countryside, have set up sun beds and parasols, but the beach is public.

The location. The hotel is not on the Marinella at Selinunte. It is 4 kilometres outside the town, in the middle of nowhere. It has been built in some farmland. The landscape is flat, so there is little to see and I cannot understand why it was built here, unless the land was very cheap. You can though, see the sea in the far distance.

The building. I was expecting more from the name and was dissapointed, when the hotel came into view. As I said in the heading, it is not Grand. It looks like a building put up in the 1980s / 1990s. It is built in the Spanish style of two wings to a central communal building, 2 stories tall. It is 'functional', spotlessly clean, but now, very old fashioned. A series of Spanish arches, nothing Italian.

The rooms. Large with individual balconies, all facing a lovely pool and little else. The decor is dated pale wood furnishings - 1990s style. The ensuite bathrooms were OK, but I did not like the small shower cubicle in the corner, with folding plastic shutter doors, which were discoloured and manky at the bottom. It just did not look clean, though it probably was. The rooms and bathroms need completely updating to maintain it's star rating. The bedding was good quality and again spotless.

Breakfast. The dining room is huge, with windows looking out all round. What I found strange, is that all the tables with nice views.......were reserved ! Tables had reserved notices, with guests names and the number of days the table was reserved. It appears some guests were staying at least a week. All the best tables were reserved. You could not tell, if the person had been, or had not yet been to breakfast. The table was reserved for the whole breakfast period. I simply chose a table I liked and sat down. I could see the staff were not too pleased by this and they made their feelings felt, without actually asking me to move. The items on offer, were of poor quality, the coffee was dreadful and it wasn't worth the bother.

Overall, I could not see why anyone would stay here. There is a beautiful new hotel overlooking the harbour, right in the centre of Selinunte, surrounded by excellent restaurants and bars - The Admeto, which far outshines this hotel, for the same price. The admeto is a glass tower, each room having its own balcony overlooking the town, the Archeological Park or the harbour. Breakfast is served in the fourth floor dining room - all glass, or on the open air terrace, with as I say, stunning views.

Hotel is charming and well located (countryside is great but hotel is a little isolated and a car is a must). Room was clean with safe and fridge, no complaint here! We had to suffer a singer right below our balcony the 2 first night and they moved him when he asked them.
Restaurant staff (especially Franscesca) has been wonderful and Giuseppe who drove us to and from the beach everyday was great.
We spent a great week there!
Only 1 point on which the hotel can really improve: French or English speaking at the reception is really limited. Except the manager, other reception staff doesn't speak fluently French or English (we looked for information on a travel to Palermo and got booked on a 75€ trip we didn't want). They even had to ask Franscesca from the restaurant to help translating. A piece of advice: if you need to change reception staff, think about Franscesca.
Finally, if you want to visit the country and you don't want to rent a car, you can take the bus to go to Castelvetrano (3 passages in the morning and 3 in the afternoon). From there you can take a bus to Palermo (around 20€ for a 2 ways trip for 2 people). Travel takes approximatively 1h30.

On arrival, we were greeted by thumping second rate gym bunny music and a DJ shouting inanities over a loudspeaker to a half empty hotel. If rest or relaxation or sleep or the sound of birds and the sea matter at all to you, avoid this place like you would a coughing COVID patient. Tacky beyond belief. And a pox on a place that might otherwise sublime.

I agree with Nomdevdt. That host screaming through an amplifier all day and into the night might appeal to some, but not me. It’s a deal-breaker. And I pity anyone who lives nearby. I went to the beach a kilometer away and could even hear the shouting there.

The hotel was hard to find. In the neighborhood the Selinunte villages tried to build a large holiday resort but it seems no one is interested. Some large boulevards are build in the middle of nowhere so is the hotel. Breakfast was not very fresh but on the other hand the staff opened the buffet especially for us so we could prepare a take away breakfast in the evening before leaving. The pool area is nice so is the view from the pool.
4 stars is maybe a bit overrated.

This hotel is a newer property, 3 years I believe. I found the staff to be helpful and very nice. The rooms are a bit lacking in decor but they are clean and the beds were nice. The cleaning staff was prompt and did an excellent job. The hotel manager was very kind as well as the rest of the staff.

The people who really stood out as outstanding were the owners of the bar. We are not drinkers but to go down and enjoy a Coke Light with some friendly conversation after a long day, well, that meant a lot. They spoke English well and I was very happy to learn that they really worked hard at keeping the prices down on soft drinks, coffee, etc. Reasonable bottles of wine were available too.

This hotel boasts a very nice pool, beautiful views and quiet surroundings. I would stay here again in a heartbeat as I found it to be very relaxing.

This probably was a "Grand" Hotel when it was built, perhaps 20 years ago. But time is unforgiving, and the hotel, still quite impressive from the outside and with a very nice pool area, is run down and very far from a 4-star hotel in terms of room quality, service, and lobby areas. We paid 126 for a 1 night half board: the dinner food was almost uneatable (in Italy of all places!); breakfast was very basic. However, before landing here we saw another couple of 3 star hotels: they were even worse!
Quality just does not seem to belong here.

This hotel was a disappointment. We arrived midday in June, 2008, to find it located in the middle of nowhere, with no bars or restaurants nearby. Yet the hotel's bar was closed, the restaurant only served dinner, and the staff was very unhelpful. We canceled the reservation immediately and booked another place.

The Hotel's on-line description is a bit inflated. You need a pair of high powered binoculars to enjoy "A gorgeous enchanting view of the sandy dunes and the uncontaminated sea ...." Essentially a nice new facility. Our room was adequate, clean but , not very large. The main attraction for us was the archaeological sight which we visited after having an excellent lunch at the Castelvetrano. The Castelvetrano is a new hotel and restaurant on the main road to the town. The food was excellent, and if we had not had an existing reservation I definitely would have stayed there. After visiting the sight it took us well over an hour to find the Grande Hotel Selinunte. There were a few directional signs in town, but nothing thereafter, and the hotel was quite a distance out of town.
