We spent four days last September at the end of a Sicilian tour and it was a beautiful place to slow down and unwind. The setting on the hillside provides amazing views of the sea and Mt. Etna. The pool setting was lovely. We found the rooms a bit on the small side for the price we paid. That would be the only criticism. The food in the ballroom setting was excellent as well as by the pool. Location of the hotel next to the park and close to the town center was also a plus. Service by all employees was excellent!
Lovely--but tough to drive to.
A very off-season visit was well-rewarded. The rooms are clean with an old-fashioned elegance, and the amenities ample. It overlooked the water and what appeared to be ruins of some sort. The location is a fun 10-minute walk from the town's shopping street. Tough getting to the hotel, though, as one entrance to the street was blocked by a gate, and Google couldn't figure out an alternate route.
This gracious, comfortable hotel has stunning views. These are obtained from many rooms, the dining and lounge room and a huge top floor terrace. The hotel dates to 1898 and has a long history of distinguished guests, including many literary figures and the intelligentsia. The dining room is magnificent, with high ceilings and Belle Époque design and furnishings. It has gobsmacking coastal and sea views, as well as of Mount Etna. When we were there, one could admire, over breakfast, both a snowy Mount Etna and the sea views. Staff are professional and friendly. There is a generous, quality buffet breakfast, which was included with our tariff. Luncheon and dinner also was served daily, which was convenient and afforded guests more opportunities to enjoy the glorious views. Highly recommended.
Good location, walking distance to center .
We stayed at this very nice hotel for 1 week. Good location, walking distance to the center, although the road went uphill Professional and welcoming on arrival. Rooms: Clean and stylish, comfortable beds. The room was spacious with good shower and toilet Breakfast: Good and many options, could vary the supply a little more it was basically the same every day.
