“A Fabulous holiday”

We stayed at the wonderful Marina di Ragusa at the end of September through to the beginning of October. The weather was beautiful and warm, a treat away from the cold of England! Ivan is such a helpful person, he couldn’t have done more for us. He was very attentive, always contactable, a pleasure to meet and made our stay easy and comfortable
I booked an apartment that was too far for my brother and husband to walk regularly into town but as soon as I told Ivan he arranged for a transfer to another apartment which was right near the centre of town.
Both apartments were clean, modern, well-furnished and spaciously set out. The first had a lovely garden (the reason I booked it) and although the second had an outside space it wasn’t as pretty. However, the closeness to the local facilities and the beach outweighed the garden hands down.
I would thoroughly recommend Vacanze Marina, for their properties and their service, I will be booking through them in the future.

A HUGE thank you to Ivan for helping us make this 2 week holiday so memorable in Sunset 2. As our host he provided us with a spotlessly clean apartment where everything functioned perfectly, including the strong and reliable WIFI. The beds were very comfortable and the little sitting area outside with the Lemon Tree was a lovely addition. The Air con was much appreciated too. As was the 6 bottles of water waiting for us after a long and late flight. The apartment is situated in a calm neighbourhood with great access to the whole town.

Ivan also helped us to the supermarket as we had no car, taking us there and back as many times as we needed. He is always on hand for help or advice and hand on heart we have both remarked he is the best host we have had in many years of travelling around the world.

We found it easy to get around in comfortable air conditioned buses which take you just about anywhere you want to go. If you need a taxi they are easy to find and not expensive. So we did travel quite a bit as we are both fans of Inspector Montalbano, the police detective series filmed in the area and shown on BBC4. We had a lovely lunch at Montalbano's favourite restaurant in the series, A Rusticana in Ragusa which was superb.

There are many other places to eat, from high end to chips and ice cream, and the Pizzas are SO delicious! As is the ice cream of course. There are many seafood/fish restaurants, and takeaways where you can sit outside with a slice of pizza and a glass or two of wine and join the locals. Spoilt for choice really. The beach is so clean you could eat off it. The water in September is like a warm bath and you can wade out a long way before your feet leave the sand.

The Main Square seems to have something going on almost every night. Great fun to join in. On the seafront there are cafes and restaurants where there is often great music being played. Such an atmosphere! The locals are very friendly and helpful and it all felt so safe and relaxed.

We are hoping to return in 2017 as frankly, when you have found something as good as this why go anywhere else! Once again a BIG thank you to Ivan who was helpful and friendly above and beyond expectations. See you next year!

The apartment is good located, spacious and convenient. Everything you need is close the sea, the shops. Not far from the local supermarket and children playing area. Perfect to rest with a family or couple of friends. Helpful owner trying to make your holiday comfortable.

it was much more than I could expect. Me and my children (4 and 1.10 years ) stayed one month in La Plage. My husband stayed only for two weeks, so for 2 weeks I was alone with children and didn't feel very brave about that, BUT with Ivans attitude towards his guests I felt very safe and knew that if anything happens he will help ;) the property and the location (especially with small children) were also wonderful. the flat is spacious, very well designed - 2 families can easily stay there and feel quite private because of 2 bathrooms and rooms located in different sides of the property. it is fully equipped. everything is modern and quite new. it is close to the town centre, but also in a quiet place. the sea is 30-40 meters away with a nice coast and a special pool for small children. 200 metres away there is a town centre with shops, cafes and the main square. a rather big supermarket is around the corner. 200 meters from the house there is a hudge children playing area. there also is a wonderful farmers market each Tuesday morning. Ivan can organize, arrange or recommend many things or activities. If there is a five star "caring of your guests" rating, it definitaly goes to Ivan ;) If I ever had any kind of business related with customer service, I would love it to be run the way Ivan does :)

“Ivan at VacanzeMarina is our go-to for our stays in the beautiful Marina di Ragusa”
Reviewed 14 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We have been to Marina di Ragusa twice now with our young family and twice we have rented apartments from Ivan at VacanzeMarina.com. Ivan has a number of properties in the town and this year we stayed in the apartment downstairs from this apartment. Whilst our apartment did not a seaview, it was still perfectly located directly across from the beach. The apartment itself was spacious, well-equipped, exceptionally clean and very comfortable.

Marina di Ragusa is a fantastic seaside town with plenty of really great restaurants (great seafood), cafes (try the ricotta cannoli), gelaterias, bakeries and bars all centred around the town's piazza and its sandy beaches. And best of all, it feels like holidaying in a local community as opposed to a holiday town. Marina di Ragusa is also a great town to base yourself for a week or more to exploring the area - the nearby baroque towns of Ragusa and Sicli (both within 20mins drive) and further afield (Modica & Noto) and the Valle dei Templi (Agrigento - 2hrs) and Syracuse (1h 30). For kids, the beach is very safe as the water is reasonably shallow and it's easy to get lunch locally to bring to the beach - arancini from Ara is the best.

Booking with Ivan is very easy and he is on the ground to meet you when you arrive and throughout your stay if you need anything, You may also see him pass you on the beach on his paddle board. Having stayed in two of Ivan's properties, I would be more that happy to book with him again and we found the accommodation really good value given the location.
