Who decides whichrecommendations give benefits as part of my Proud of Sicily membership?
Properties first must receive Proud of Sicily‘s distinguished recommendation after an anonymous stay from our editors. Once recommended, these hotels and travel partners can choose to offer additional benefits to our members if they wish.
You can search for these benefits on, or in our special offer emails. You can participate in last-minute delas and weekly auctions as well.
From guaranteed upgrades to complimentary breakfasts and more, these benefits can offset the cost of your membership and certainly add to the comfort and enjoyment of your travels.

What are the special offers?
These are offers negotiated specifically for Proud of Sicily members.
You can sign up to receive our special offer email in your profile, search special offers by individual travel partner or select Offers on the nevigation bar to see all special offers, including last minute deals.

Do properties pay to be included in your recommendations?
No. Recommendations are made only after an incognito visit by one of our editors.
Once recommended, hotels, restaurants and travel partners can extend additional travel benefits to our readers. Whether a property offers additional benefits dose not affect its recommended status. If a property no longer attains the level of service and experience required by Proud of Sicily, it is dropped as a recommended hotel or partner.
