We stayed at this apartment for 4 nights in April 2015 with our 2 young children. I would definitely recommend staying here and is good value for money.
Some things to point out (but not about the apartment)
1.The road system here has lots of one ways and thin roads. Our sat nav didn't recognise some blocked roads and we ended up having to ring Cinzia to come and get us so either do your homework in detail beforehand or ask Cinzia to meet you on a main road and direct you in!
2. The beach in the harbour isn't really a beach you would go to and relax on, it's quite dirty. The closest proper beach is about 10 minutes drive away. You can walk (about 25 mins) but part of the road is a bit dangerous to walk on with children.
overall castellamare is a very pretty town with lots of nice restaurants and they are currently doing quite a lot of work around the town to make it even nicer.
My brother and I came to see the coast of Sicily and enjoy some solitude, off-peak. Cinzia and Giovanni were always available and helpful. The townsfolk were friendly and approachable. Restaurants like Cambuso and Mirko were great by any standard, and Salvinius most so! The apartment was clean and well kept. I'd recommend for younger people and families alike.
