Staff friendly and adequate English - although it was amusing trying to explain how I wanted my steak rare, without any Italian ability myself, and watching the staff debate my gestures!
Room clean and acceptable - air con worked well as did fridge.Outlook to swimming pool.
Breakfast typical continental buffet with option for cold meats, cheese or omelette. Good quality pastries and jams/marmalade.
Good dinner portion sizes, reasonable priced. Lacking in fish options when we visited, but what we ate was good. Cheap wine available!
Good sized, clean swimming pool. Sun loungers and parasols available.
Location remote, which is what we wanted - Mount Etna in the distance.
Home grown tomatoes and aubergines. Homemade marmalade - forgot to buy a jar!
Local town seemed one to avoid but we did drive through at night. Surrounding/approaching roads to hotel not pretty!
Not infrequent road noise at swimming pool but not too loud and not bother us.
