Disappointing, except for the lovely garden
Posted Dec 27, 2015
This hotel was adequate, but that's all. The room was ok, and the beds were satisfactory, but everything about the room decorations and supplies indicated that the management had spent the absolute minimum. Even the facial tissue was so cheap that it fell apart when you tried to use it. It all just felt punitive.
The front desk staff stayed in their office whenever possible, and when forced to come to the desk to deal with the patrons, they always seemed annoyed. They were snippy when asked for directions to the Greek temples, and they offered no local maps, nor were there any on the desk or in the room. This is surprising considering that the main reason that anyone would stay at the hotel would be to visit the temples.
On the other hand, the restaurant was located in a quite lovely garden overlooking the temples. This was definitely the best aspect of the hotel, by far. The food was acceptable, and the service was so-so.
In summary, this hotel is ok, but not much more. In comparison to the 3 other hotels that we stayed at during our visit to Sicily, it was quite a disappointment. For about the same cost, the other places were quite delightful, each in their own ways, elegant or quirky or historic, with friendly and helpful owners/staff. The Colleverde Park Hotel was just ok.
