romantic getawayPosted Jun 3, 2013
Location: outside of Siracusa in the countryside, so parking is easy
Beautiful, romantic, breakfast was the best we had in Sicily -- we would go back in a heartbeat.

What a fantastic hidden treasure!Posted May 29, 2013
Pros: I can't think of a single thing I would change but be warned its off the beaten track.... Trust the sat nav.
Location: Very picturesque and away from the city but close enough to get a taxi into the town for dinner etc.
What a fantastic hidden treasure. It's got all the charm of a rustic retreat with all the luxury of a 5 star spa hotel. The team just can't do enough to ensure you feel welcome and have a wonderful stay. The food was delicious, we both had fantastic massages and spent hours relaxing by the beautiful pool. Before we left we inquired about hotels near Palermo for 3 days down the line and the staff (who all speak fantastic English and encourage you to practice your Italian) went out of their way checking the Internet and calling hotels to ensure we ended our Sicilian stay in the same style we started it. I will go back again and again - Thank you for a wonderful time Borgo Pantano!

Very relaxing comfortable stay.Posted May 23, 2013
Pros: The sunbeds
Location: Location is remote.
The hotel was lovely. Great pool area and sun loungers including four poster beds. The staff were very helpful and friendly too. One tip, don't follow your sat navigation to the hotel as it will take you the wrong way. Get directions from website or direct from hotel. Restuarant is very nice, and only place to eat really unless you drive into Siracusa.

Rooms somewhat tightPosted May 21, 2013 on Hotels.com
Hotel was very clean. Staff were very patient and helpful, particularly Noémie and others at the reception desk. Buffet breakfast was good, although not quite as good as those offered by several other hotels we stayed at in Sicily. Amenities were very good, particularly the pool and grounds, but location was a bit remote and inconvenient and our room the first night so small that there was hardly space for a chair and we requested (and were granted) a room change.

Nice service, but not walking distance to anythingPosted Apr 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
Beautiful spa hotel, fantastic pool and surrounding area for families and weddings.Orange trees in full bloom, filled the air with their perfume. Too far from anything to walk so take the shuttle for 5E rt. Save driving in traffic, no parking spots, no chance of a ticket...worth every euro. Breakfast was excellent, more than any one could ask for including omelletes on request. Diner was hit or miss on what we liked, service was spotty. Hotel on the other hand was quick and responsive to any request, very helpful. Beds were firm but comfortable memory foam, lines crisp and nice, flat pillows, ask for extra. Rooms were very clean, some rather small, comfort rooms worth the extra euros.

Hotel Borgo Pantano, Syracuse, Sicily, ITPosted Oct 27, 2012 on Hotels.com
A wonderful hotel located 20 minutes outside Syracuse (Siracusa) in agricultural area. Hotel is styled in manner of a Sicilian walled farm, surrounded by olive and fruit tree groves. Great pool complex, comfortably sized rooms and all amenities. Our only regret is that we only planned to stay one night. Very good restaurant, very friendly and helpful staff. Can't say enough about this hotel. And the city of Syracuse was a pleasant surprise as well, particularly Ortygia area.

Best hotel in SicilyPosted Sep 29, 2012
Pros: The surroundings
Location: Not easy to find
We are just back from a two-weeks stay in Sicily, and we have been to many great hotels during that time. But I must say that Borgo Pantano is the best hotel we have been in Sicily.The staff is very friendly and the surroundings are ideal. We were to try different restaurants in Siracusa, but instead we had dinner at the hotel restaurant during our entire stay, and did not regret it.The buffet breakfast is exquisite, cannot ask for better.We did not have a GPS, and we had a hard time finding the hotel, because you wonder if you are in the right direction, since you are travelling on a small country road. But it was all worth it.

Perfect for a relaxing breakPosted Sep 27, 2012
Lovely pool area, lots of space to relax and very helpful staff. The food was much better than I would have expected for a relatively small hotel and the menu changed daily. The rooms and suites were stylish and comfortable. All in all, a fantastic hotel for a relaxing break.

An Oasis in SicilyPosted Sep 23, 2012
Pros: The competent staff and the lovely grounds
Cons: The restaurant chef is not up to the same standard as the hotel, i.e., perfect.
Location: Some distance from Siracuse itself but worth every kilometer one had to drive to get to it.
This establishment is exceptional. The staff, in particular are always cheerful, eager to help and considerate. The hotel grounds are a pleasure and very originally furnished.
