Highs & Lows

  • I have had the pleasure of visiting the Musciara two times. The first time, Laura the bombshell owner in a bikini, her mama, and her sweet daughter Francesca greeted me at the door of the hotel. I instantly fell in love with this famiglia and hotel.

  • The sense of home and comfort at the Musciara is undeniable. The open spaces, the breakfast area, and beach deck felt like they belonged to us.

  • The food at the hotel is just so good.

  • Due to the sound of the waves, the fresh ocean breeze, and the simple but comfortable bed, I have never slept so well in my life.

  • The Musciara is the only hotel in Syracuse with a private beach and the most spectacular, unpretentious, well kept one at that.

  • This hotel inspires and moves me in so many ways.
