Loved it

Posted Sep 7, 2007
The hotel it's self is fabulous. All areas are clean and well maintained, and the staff are all helpful and friendly too. You can get by with just English, and the menu's in the restaurant are translated too. The hotel is in a quite secluded spot, we rented a car, and would recommend you do too. The are a few villages along the coast within 20 minutes drive which offer, a 'local' experience, great seafood, cheap lunches and again very friendly people. The coast in the area is made of dark volcanic rock and wouldn't be great for little children, and the rocks get very hot too!!. All in all, I would reccommend this hotel in every respect!

Will definitively go back

Posted Jul 20, 2007
The hotel was great. It was just renovated during the 2007 Winter so we had a fabulous brand new room. It was also very spacious, similar to US standards. The food was good and the dining a la carte area was very, very romantic overlooking the sea. The salt water pool was excellent, with a stunning view. However, the staff only speaks Italian or Sicilian and the menus were all in Italian! Can be annoying for some people, but we welcomed the language challenge! We wish they have wireless connection throughout the hotel and having a small work out room would be a plus. Also, make sure to hire a car and bring your own map, there is lot to discover on the East coast from Taormina to Syracusa. The hotel front desk is very helful and ladies, watch out for the pool boy!! In Sicily, make sure you tip very well (it appears to be the custom which we immediately applied and received fabulous service!

Hotel good but you need a car!!!

Hotel service was very good. Air con was not working, was soon moved into a better room. Pool very clean as was the Hotel in general. Food and service was excellent. You need a car, however, driving in Sicily is chaotic at times.

Bellissima struttura, con qualche pecca

Posted Aug 16, 2017 on Hotels
Una struttura meravigliosa, che comunque dà l'impressione di essere un po' in declino rispetto ad un recente passato. Spicca naturalmente la piscina d'acqua marina, con il suo suggestivo affaccio sul blu del mare, cui è possibile arrivare tramite un'agevole passerella, sotto lo sguardo attento dei bagnini. Utile il servizio di "prestito" dei teli da mare. Un po' disidicevole per la struttura il cattivo stato dell'asfalto, l'abbandono del villino adiacente e la distruzione di parte della piattaforma originaria (non siamo riusciti a capire da quanti anni sia rimasta in queste condizioni). Ottima la colazione e molto buono anche il pranzo nel ristorantino con vista mare, anche caratterizzato da prezzi molto onesti per il contesto in cui si trova. Sempre gentilissimo tutto lo staff. Stanze spaziose e pulite.

Es war ein wunderschöner,erholsamer Urlaub. Das Hotel ist sehr schön und die Zimmer sind sehr sauber. Allerdings sollte man sich ein Auto mieten, denn das Hotel liegt etwas abgelegen. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Es werden tägl. frische Handtücher für die Liegen am Meer gestellt. Der nächste Urlaub in diesem Hotel ist in Planung.
