Fantastic 5 star find and Expedia special rate was an incredible bonus but you need a car to get there and around. Once off the highway it's one road but you've got 30 minutes of climbing with lots of turns. Plan to get there in the daytime until you learn the road. Elegant and modern building, full spa, outdoor pool and beautifully appointed rooms and common areas. Surrounded by golf course and vineyard perched on the northface of Mt. Etna volcano. You see the steam rising and snow on the cap. 45-60 minutes from Taormina (don't miss it) Giardini Naxos(the beaches city).Plenty to chose for breakfast and all staff friendly and helpful. A/C; good size washroom; good beds; fridge and mini bar; flastscreen LCD etc. and our room had a patio with good privacy. Place is absolutely spotless. Some of the artwork was "interesting". They offer dinner but we ate out.

"Memorable - if not quite as good as it could be."
Beautiful rustic building - in a peaceful location, surrounded by chestnut trees, on the slopes of Mount Etna. Newly furnished room was tastefully decorated with a view of the mountain, and everything worked.
Good home-cooked dinner was reasonable value - which was fortunate, given the lack of any alternatives within walking distance. Breakfast was adequate if rather unimaginative (lacking any fresh local ingredients) - and was served outside on the terrace when the sun was shining.
The staff were friendly and hospitable, but disorganised, and spoke no English, so communication was a problem for us - and payment was cash only (despite Expedia's promise that credit cards were accepted)
We enjoyed our two-night stay, but wished for just a little more attention to detail, and a more imaginative breakfast menu. Then it would be perfect!

"Mount Etna trip We would give Etna Hut a 10 V GOOD"
Etna Hut is an idylic accommodation location situated on the road heading up to Mount Etna. The property is as secure as fort knocks. In that yu feel extremely safe and at ease. We chose a room with no view, basic, under house. It was fantastic. As you stepped out of the lower fron door the view of a night time was that of Catania & Syracusa point. It was spectacular view. The owner Mimo was very nice & his wife & daughter Alice & even her little daughter of 3/5 was polite. Saying Boungiorno. At the back of the property which was an Angels hill top retreat. Were 4/5 Huts which were higher quality than the room that we had but looked superb. The pool was amazing. Tennis courts available. Menu available for drinks and wine & tour details given. No NOISE ANYWHERE.

Great hotel. Very helpful and friendly staff. Room was excellent with it's own private garden. Lovely breakfasts. Spa area is really good. Location is both a strength and a weakness. It is quiet and secluded which is great if you're away for a night or so and are looking to relax but if you're away for more than that then 3km from the nearest small town means you have to drive for a night out. Biggest minus is that whilst the restaurant is good, it is overpriced. Got the room out of season at a very competitive price so personally had very good value for money for a 5* hotel.

Staff, particularly the Reception staff, were excellent and couldn't be more helpful. The facilities are outstanding particularly pools and spa, grounds, location, buildings and public rooms. To be critical, the room we were in was a bit small but with a large balcony with superb panoramic views and the bar area was a little sparse. Our shower needed some maintenance to the curtain and shower head but compared to the positives that were so many, these were minor points.

This hotel is an excellent launching point for visits to Mt. Etna. Make sure you reserve dinner here as well. The food is excellent.
When we checked out my wife forgot to pack her digital camera. We only discovered it missing a few days later and thought for sure the camera was lost for good. However, the staff proactively emailed us that they had found the camera. They also went out of their way to courier the camera back to us.
First class accommodation with friendly, trustworthy, and service oriented people.
