We found this hotel by chance when planning a road trip in Sicily. Fantastic, if you do not mind a little bit of an extra drive.

Not too many rooms so the hotel keeps its charm and friendly atmosphere. Great hotel, very clean, very comfortable bed and staff are pleasant and cheerful. Highly recommended! We will be visiting again in the very near future!

Place is alright. Location is far from downtown. Shower was very small, like the ones we can buy from Home Depot ready to install. Bathroom dark. Room was just alright. Breakfast was poor. We had dinner at their pizzeria restaurant and it was good. People are very friendly. Giusy was amazing with her costumer service. Piazza Armerina itself was not a place that we would go back to visit.

Fantastic service from all staff, Lara made a special effort and was helpful throughout our stay. Without a doubt a great and friendly place to stay. The food was very good quality and service also. I would stay again and recommend the hotel to anyone in the area.

This hotel is a few minutes on the opposite side of town from the Villa Romana del Casale (in other words, it's a few minutes by car into town, a few minutes to go through town, then a few more minutes to get to the Villa). There is rarely someone at the front desk, and one generally has to phone the restaurant, and someone will come in to help. The staff are all quite nice, but none speaks a word of English.
Our room was on the ground floor, and there was no highway noise from that floor, as others have complained about. It may be a problem in higher floors. When entering the hallway, you kind of have to take a "leap of faith" into the darkness, because the lights only turn on after you enter the hallway (motion sensor). The rooms are clean and comfortable, but the TV's don't have a single channel in any language other than Italian.
The restaurant had a number of different items on the menu, and it gets quite full with locals after 9 PM, but I never saw anyone order anything but pizza. We did the same (the pizza was quite good). The breakfast was OK. Not among the best of our trip, but certainly quite adequate. Parking is easy and plentiful.
I might have rated this place more highly, but it advertises as a 4*, and it's nowhere near that by any stretch of the imagination. It hardly even qualifies as a 3*. There is nothing extra one might associate with a 4*, such as a pool, fitness center, or hot tub, and I don't see how a place with no front desk staff, no bilingual staff, and limited TV channel selection can call itself a 4*. The 3* we stayed for the next 4 days in Catania was significantly nicer (Hotel Mediterraneo). If I had to do it over again, we would have visited the Villa as a day trip from Catania or Palermo--the highway connections are quite good.

Room tip: The ground floor rooms are quiet and you don't have to deal with the small, old elevator.

Al Ritrivo gave us a great place to stay as we prepared to see Piazza Armerina, and specifically the amazing Roman Villa, a must-see.. The decor was very nice, and although the bathroom was quite small, the room was comfortable and polished.

We did have one complaint. There weren't many people staying at the hotel when we were there and the front desk clerk was away most of the time, leaving all the room keys, and our passports, unattended and in plain sight. She showed us our room initially, but we never saw her again. She left her laptop and at one point even her pocketbook on the chair. We rang the bell several times at different times, and in the morning when we were leaving, but no one ever came. I have no idea where she went.

Other than that, the hotel was great and the restaurant is the bomb and served us the best Pizza we have had in a while. A liter of great wine for €6 is a nice touch too. Go there!
