  • Wonderful expression of the ancient art of fishing and working on tuna, visit this resort is like stepping into history of this ancient Sicilian custom in a gorgeous place and well preserved on the border of the wonderful zingaro. Definitely worth visiting

  • The place is very interesting. Pity that in January the Museum is closed and there is no one with directions.

  • Scopello is beautiful - if you're a strong swimmer head out amongst the limestone pillars and explore.
  • You have to go knowing that's not a beach...then, you'll enjoy this lovely place! One of the best Island places!
  • The location could not be better and the staff is friendly. The rooms however are so old (not maintained), dirty and full of insects. If I could post photos, you would probably not book. It is supposed to be a private beach but they sell tickets to people who want to spend the day on the beach. The result is that it is very crowded. If they would invest a couple of million in the apartments, it could be a true 4star hotel. Now it's just camping with a roof. Very disappointed. For 180 euro per night I would have expected at least some shampoo in the room and clean mattresses
  • Okay for a swim. There's no bar or anything to do here though and I preferred the natural beaches of nearby Zingaro national park.
  • Fantastic and peaceful place...good for those seeking a peaceful vacation and adventure...
