Nice B&B in nice resort

Was able to park on street opposite the hotel, the owner gives you a permit to display in your windscreen. The street was not that busy. The owners were very friendly, they didn't speak much English but I speak a bit of Italian so we managed to get by. The hotel was typical of a small, family run Sicilian hotel/B&B, slightly basic but great hospitality. Our room was small but the owner apologised for that and explained it was the last room left and the smallest in the hotel. The breakfast was up on the roof terrace. There was a plentiful supply of fruit, cakes and sweet breads, though no savoury food, which is quite usual in Sicily, they don't half have sweet tooths! Hotel was about 15 mins walk down to the beach, very handy. The centre of San Vito is very flat compared to most Sicilian resorts and the streets seemed to be on a grid system, quite a nice little resort. It's a very popular resort and is quite bustling both during the day and at night. San Vito was worth a stay if you are into touristy beach resorts. It was certainly more of a holiday resort than a typical Sicilian town. The beach is nice, but we had a lot of jellyfish come in on the day we swam there. Probably the 2nd best beach we went to on Sicily (Cefalu was the best). Depends what you want, if you want a more authentic Sicilian village/town then give San Vito a miss, but if you want a day on a nice beach and then an evening mooching around tourist shops and restaurants then you'll enjoy San Vito.
