Booking.com guest review guidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This lets us know that our reviews come from real guests, like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or quiet room than someone who’s stayed at the property before?
We want you to share your story, both the good and the bad. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinion and experiences, which are critical in helping guests make well-informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, and are treated with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full, as quickly as possible, after being moderated to comply with Booking.com guidelines. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
Once a review has been submitted, you can modify it by contacting Booking.com customer service.
We will use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content as well as the property replies to that content.
We will allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is that of a distributor of feedback from both guest and property.
Guidelines and standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly without limiting expression of strong opinions. They are also applicable regardless of the sentiment of the comment.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include 'hate speech', discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, and the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.
By default, reviews are sorted based on the date of the review and on additional criteria to display the most relevant reviews, including but not limited to: your language, reviews with text, and non-anonymous reviews. Additional sorting options may be available (by type of traveller, by score, etc...).

눉Good self catering facilities however as the island is so remote there are not that many options for buying food so we preferred to eat out.
눇Well appointed self catering apartments in beautiful setting on beautiful Marettimo. The lovely Valentina was always on hand to help.

눉Nothing really; it was what we wanted. We didn't need the kitchen or the outdoor dining table as we were there for two nights for a wedding, but anyone staying for a week could find them useful.
눇Getting to Marettimo needs planning; the ferry goes from Trapani about four times a day and takes 1 1/2 hours. The Residence will bring a golf buggy for your luggage, if they're expecting you, and you just walk, keeping the sea on your left, up the hill until you run out of village, about five minutes. The Residence consists of 42 studio units, uncluttered and efficient, in pretty gardens with a small pool. You are not aware of so many other units, and, as there is no traffic on the island, it's quiet. The reason I give a lowish mark to the 'how accurate?' question is that it's actually better than the website suggests.

눉There hasn't been a thing we didn't like. WiFi didn't work but I am sure it was a temporary problem as we stayed only one day.
눇Brilliant place to relax away from traffic, noise and loud people. Your luggage gets picked up at the hydrofoil stop. Terrific book collection for guests.

눉The Internet.. maybe spray for mosquitoes? The apartment was perfect in every way and staff was wonderful and accommodating!
눇Everything about the Residence was perfect except for just one thing -- the internet. the connection was sporadic at best. I think it is time for an upgrade. We received great connection at La Scala Restaurant

눇This is a very special hotel indeed. It is superbly located overlooking the sea in Marettimo and one can enjoy peace and tranquility in beautiful surroundings. The hotel grounds are well maintained and beautiful to enjoy. The staff are wonderfully helpful. My husband and I were not well at the end of our stay and everything possible was done to help us. The room (Junior Suite) was excellent with all basic facilities and a lovely terrace and view. Breakfast is taken in a very nice sheltered area outdoors with superb views down over the sea. Wi-fi was available in the room and worked perfectly. It was too cold to swim in the pool in April but the upper garden has a lovely seating area which we enjoyed using and looking over the hillsides and sea. There are numerous restaurants and a couple of supermarkets within easy walking distance from the hotel, down in the friendly little port town. In short, this has all one needs for an idyllic stay in tranquility and with lovely staff. We look forward to our next visit.

눉Too many mean notices telling you that you could only have one cup of coffee or fruit juice without paying extra etc. Pool hopelessly small. Bad weather meant no swimming for most of our stay - but it was October !
눇Beautiful island lovely hotel garden staff who magnificently helped us catch our hydrofoil when bad weather threatened our departure from the island.

눉The return hydrofoil ride to Trapani was exceedingly rough - on a very windy day - but clearly this is no fault of the residence. Be prepared for crossing cancellations if the weather is bad.
눇The location is superb, on this unspoilt island. The residence is clean and staff extremely helpful and friendly. Baggage is conveyed from the port free of charge. Our apartment had a lovely view and quiet terrace and was equipped for all our needs. Wi-Fi is free and reasonably efficient considering the remoteness of the spot. Marettimo is a lovely island to explore and has some good restaurants.

눉We have stayed here numerous times and I remember we use to have some amenities in the kitchen like salt and pepper, sugar. that would be something I would like to see in the future. we stayed at the Marriott in Barcelona and they had miniature plastic salt and pepper shakers that were great! Just a suggestion everything about our stay was perfect!!!
눇Everything.. Fausto and team were so accommodating and made you feel as if you were at home

눉Our room smelled a little of sewage for a few hours everyday. Must have been a pipe behind the room. Wasn't too bad as it was gone by the evening, but a little off putting.
눇The most idyllic spot in Marettimo. The staff were lovely and the room was fantastic. We extended our stay for N extra night.

눉I thought the pool and jacuzzis would be heated but didn't seem to be- was looking forward to that after a couple of days cycling on Favignana. Child next door woke us a couple of mornings- not sure if it was because they were a particularly loud child or because of thin walls. TV wasn't reliable- but this is an island rather then resort issue.
눇Had a junior suite with separate bedroom and side on sea view. Very good facilities- dishwasher liquid in the kitchen (not the case somewhere else we booked on Favingnana). Breakfast was good and fresh at an open air, informal location. Very relaxing place set on a hillside. Free transportation of luggage from the boat. Receptionist spoke English very well. Excellent service when I sent an email asking for my boarding passes to be printed off- they were brought to the room about a minute after I sent the email.

눇Located at the edge of Marettimo village, the only inhabited place on the island, and engulfed with verdure and flowers, Marettimo Residence makes a great and peaceful place for leisure. Proximity of several mountain tracks supports active leisure as well. Great, helpful staff contributes to the atmosphere of the place.
