GOOD SHORT STAY

Posted May 22, 2016
Pros: LOCATION, GREAT SIZE ROOMS AND BATHROOM A GREAT INFINITY POOL
Location: LOCATED HALF WAY UP A MOUNTAIN SIDE FACING THE SEA WITH FABULOUS VIEWS OF SEA AND COASTLINE. SITED ON EDGE "GIOIOSA MAREA" WHICH IS A BEAUTIFUL TOWN
VERY NICE LOOKING HOTEL BUT REALLY A 5 STAR, MORE OF 3/4 STAR ROOMS AND DOUBLE BED A GOOD SIZE, WELL EQUIPPED, VERY CLEAN AND NICE SMALL TERRACE FACING SEA. OUTSIDE TERRACE WAS NOT LAID OUT OR PREPARED FOR SITTING IN MIDDAY SUN WE ONLY WENT BB, BREAKFAST WAS POOR, NOT A HUGE CHOICE, FRUIT WAS NOT FRESH, WHICH IS SHAME OF WHERE IT IS!!COFFEE WAS SERVED FROM A SELF-SERVICE DISPENSER AND NOT SERVED FRESH! - NOT IS EXPECTED FROM A 5 STAR REATED HOTEL

Heavenly

Posted May 29, 2015
Pros: Location, views and staff. Main bar did fab cocktails.
Cons: Not all of the facilities were open e.g terrace and pool bar.
Location: Gioiosa is a good base to see other areas of Sicily
We booked this hotel as we needed to stay in Gioiosa to attend a Holy Communion and was near to where our friends lived. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, even arranging transport for us to get to the church on the Sunday. Our room was a great size and very clean and the balcony sea view, perfecto. The best thing had to be the infinity pool area, which had stunning views. We can't wait to go back.

Desk women were rude and irritating. The dinner buffet was terrible.

New Hotel..off to a good start!

Posted Oct 15, 2009
New Hotel...and the room we had was great...large bed...goodsized bathroom and shower. Staff in every area very helpful. Poolside bar...and pool itself are the highlight.Food at breakfast and evening meal was good...but repetitive....could do with more variation.Biggest suggestion for this hotel would be to invest in some Cafetieres....this would the best way of serving the morning coffee. the current method just provides warm and very weak stuff!!

Traumhafte Blick, sonnst nichts

Posted Jul 25, 2016
Cons: Essen!
Location hat Traumhafte Blick auf Meer und Sonnenuntergang. Essen war nicht gut. Sehr wenig Auswahl für 4 Strene. Keine frische Obst der Season, Kein Auswahl bei Dessert. Zum Strand nur mit Auto oder Shuttle. Shuttle fährt 1 Mal in der Früh und 2 mal am Nachmittag zum abholen. Sonnst, es ist sauber und praktisch eingerichtet. Strand war kostenlos für Hotel Kunden und Traumhaft schön und Wasser war super sauber und sehr gut.

Hotel migliorabile

Colazione non da quattro stelle. Posizione della struttura comoda e vista piscina incantevole. Lo consiglio per soggiorni brevi.

Posizione bellissima con vista sul golfo

Posted Aug 18, 2015
Pros: Posizione con vista sul mare, piscina, camere
Cons: Nessuno
Location: Come detto precedentemente la posizione è splendida con la piscina all'aperto che sporge sul golfo di Gioiosa Marea. Bello anche il piano bar la sera
Posizione bellissima con piscina a livello dell'orizzonte del mare. Il personale molto qualificato e professionale sia al bar che alla reception, e da notare anche la pulizia. Da consigliare.
