Too far out of town!

Posted Oct 20, 2014
Pros: Very quiet during the day. Pool nice and some of the staff were very nice - particularly in the restaurant
Cons: Much more info needs to be available about how to get about on the island if you are not on an organised coach tour. Bit shabby and tired in places
Location: Nothing close by to the hotel as set up on a steep hillside. Expensive taxi or you need to be relatively fit and mobile to get up/down the 1km hill
Hotel is a 1 km steep climb up the hillside. No pavements, little street lighting and very winding road so you are often very exposed to traffic. Shuttle bus not available in off season nor are there any buses so not really suitable to go into the local town after dark - had to eat at hotel each night. Food good but very limited menu. Breakfast very boring as same fayre each day Although only 7 km from Catania it takes roughly an hour and a half to travel by local bus back into town and you need to go back to Catania to get transport to anywhere else on the island. Not much English spoken and the bus drivers were just ignorant. No names on stops so no idea where you are most of the time.

Great Hotel in heart of Sicily

Posted Sep 6, 2014
Pros: Friendly helpful staff, location was great for most activities and day trips on the island but far enough away from everything to quiet and peaceful
Cons: Slight updates to the rooms in terms of Décor but perfectly adequate
Location: Mount Etna, Aci trezza great for food, Aci Castello for castle and the Lido, most things valley de temple only 2hrs away
Super hotel great value for money, everything within easy reach superb local bars and restaurants. Highly recommended!

Nice hotel, need a car though

Posted Sep 4, 2014 on Hotels
Very nice hotel, bit off the beaten path but that was no issue for us as we had a car. Lovely pool, good breakfast, comfortable rooms - though we did have problems with the fridge not working the first night, the in room safe never working and the air-con being a bit weak (strangely the air con is controlled centrally from reception!). Staff were helpful in trying to assist.

Nice hotel in a very quiet place and good food. 5 minutes by car to go to the sea. Very beautiful views of land and sea.

Fairly comfortable hotel, pleasant stay.

Posted Aug 3, 2014
Location: Useful little cafe and couple of shops outside gates, but otherwise pleasant but unexciting Aci Trezza nearest.
Nice stay. A few minor issues but most staff were friendly and helpful. Good buffet breakfast. Useful little pool. Good views. Steep walk up from Aci Trezza so it was good to have a hire car in the heat of the summer.

Lovely staff!

Posted Aug 1, 2014
Me and my boyfriend recently stayed at the president park and had a great time!! The staff are lovely and so helpful!! The hotel is perhaps a bit dated but the rooms are cleaned to a great standard everyday so it wasn't such a problem :) would definitely recommend this hotel.

Very Good 4 star hotel with pool & pleasant staff.

Posted Jul 19, 2014
Pros: High overall standard, cleanliness and plenty of parking space. Staff helpful, good breakfast. Happy to stay here again.
Cons: Wi-fi available in room for first few days then only available in corridor. Air conditioning controlled by front desk & not always cool enough.
Location: Poor choice of other restaurants close by. Need a car, hotel close to Etna national park and Taormina. Roads narrow and twisty. Area needs a facelift.
We were very pleased with the hotel overall. The facilities were very good - Pool, restaurant, lovely views of the sea especially from the rooftop breakfast room, wi-fi and friendly staff. Hotel restaurant excellent but drinks a bit pricey.

Older hotel with nice view

Posted Apr 21, 2014
Once a nice hotel but very old now. Had problems with the keys and had poor assistance from the staff. Beds old and hard but clean. Nice breakfast on the top floor with a nice view. Several miles away from town and not really convenient to any of the attractions or Catania
