7/10 - okay for a for quiet vacationPosted Aug 22, 2012 on Hotels.com
For: a helpful English-speaking reception (though most other staff don't speak any English), okay food (fish and pasta). Room interior 3.5/5 (TV out of order), but quite clean and a good internet connection. Great weddings at night. Against: boulder-strewn beach - those who don't walking on sharp stones are confined to the pool (the pool isn't crowded though). Also, It is best to be car-based to be able to go to Syracusa for sight seeing or to Augusta close by for shopping. Booked very early so the price was reasonable.

Capo Campolato, Sicily - great food, great weather and fantastic people.Posted Sep 12, 2010
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!
