"Capo Campolato, Sicily - great food, great weather and fantastic people."
Having never been to Sicily before we were a bit apprehensive about what Hotel Capo Campolato and the surrounding area would be like. However, we were extremely pleasantly suprised. We had heard the nearby Augusta area was heavily industrialised and feared that the hotel would be affected but as it is situated about 15 mins car drive from Augusta and on the other side of a pennisula we were not affected at all. The hotel itself is well maintained with comfortable, clean self contained apartments and gorgoues views of the sea, gardens and Mount Etna. Private beach access although it's volcanic rock so be careful unless the sea is calm! Check out the nearby town of Brucoli, 5 mins drive away. Good restaurants include Castello, Rizzari and Mira Mare. There are also a few good cocktail bars and gets busy over weekend with live jazz bands playing along the sea front. Renting a car is a must if you want to do any sightseeing as there are no taxi's from Brucoli or the hotel, they have to come from Augusta, and there is no public transport really. We didn't have a car but the hotel staff were extremely helpful and gave us lifts at any time. into Brucoli. Very friendly people although if you don't speak Italian you will need a phrase book or dictionary as not many people speak English and all of the resaurant menu's in Brucoli are in Italian. The hotel did cater for English speakers and you can convert some of the Sky TV channels to English! Great experience - definitely go!

Lovely hotel with spacious grounds and pool area. Glad we paid for a sea view room especially as not that much more expensive thanks to Expedia.
Restaurant a little disappointing: food good but only offering a limited menu out of season(June).
Hotel is well sign posted. Not within walking distance of Brucoli.
Access of the less mobile is good though may involve steepish gradients.

it is definitely a family village, plenty of activities for kids...staff is very friendly, food is simple but we always found something we liked...location is good although there is no sandy beach and it is better not to swim in the sea as local people said is quite polluted.
