Very nice quiet hotelPosted Oct 7, 2014
Pros: In a quiet location and good for visiting the area.
Location: Close to Modica where there are many restaurants, and within reach of Ortiga which is worth a visit.
The hotel is very modern, the rooms are clean and have a fridge and a safe. We were on the first floor and had a balcony overlooking the pool at the back. I asked for a room at the back as I had read a review saying the road could be noisy. The room was generally quiet but there was a wedding reception one evening and it was very loud in our room. The breakfast was good but we didn't have an evening meal in the hotel. The staff were pleasant, and Veronica on reception was very helpful and always had a smile on her face so made us feel very welcome. Excellent value for money.

Nice modern hotel, friendly staffPosted Jul 1, 2014 on Hotels.com
The hotel is modern, the staff are very friendly and helpful and the breakfast caters for everyone. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Sicily however I would caveat this with saying car hire is a must. The hotel is in the countryside so all of the sights and local towns are a drive away. I don't think we would have enjoyed our stay as much if we had not had a car.

Well run hotelPosted May 6, 2014 on Hotels.com
The staff were really excellent; the restaurant dinner menu was creative and interesting. The rooms we had were bright and full of light; big windows for daylight, and plenty of lightbulbs for evening. The bathrooms were good. The only negative was that we had not realised that this is a popular wedding/events hotel; we arrived on a Friday and left Sunday morning. There was a wedding on the Friday (so there was loud music late into the night, and noisy guests making their way to rooms); another wedding on the Saturday and also a second, smaller family event on the Saturday.

Quiet location but disappointing restaurantPosted Aug 13, 2013
Pros: Clean, modern design
Location: Quiet countryside so car is a must
We had a good 5 night stay at Pietre Nere. Thr hotel appeared recently refurbished and was well-maintained. Our room was clean and comfortable and I would recommend booking the superior rooms with a balcony - which are spacious. The hotel is located in the countryside and is a 15-min drive to Modica. The only reason I did not rate the hotel a 5 was due to the restaurant and the lack of staff at the hotel, noticeable mainly at breakfast. We ate dinner at the hotel restaurant (only for guests) once and found the food very average (pasta with prawns had little prawns and lots of very bitter chicory for about 12 euros). The service was awkward, slow and there was also a mix-up with the bill which should have been avoided. This was disappointing given the hotel seems to hold regular weddings in the function area next door.

Amazing HotelPosted Nov 13, 2011
I was absolutely thrilled with this hotel, it was an amazing find. All the staff are very professional and friendly and took care of everything for us, including the car hire. Also I can't rate highly enough how incredible the chef was. We ventured out to various restaurants, but this was by far the best place to eat. It was quiet when we were there - which added to the charm. I will certainly stay there again when I visit Sicily next time!
