Excellent hotel with 5* level of service
Posted Nov 6, 2015
Unlike most people who do multiple locations we decided to make Modica our base for a 2 week holiday in Sicily so I can give a review based on a far longer stay than many others. I will break it down under various headings;
Service - We have never experienced better service despite having stayed in many more expensive hotels. The staff were all friendly and efficient at all times and we made a lot of requests from going to a pharmacy to sort out remedies for a very sore throat, arranging Pilates lessons in a neighbouring town, securing reservations at restaurants through to a very efficient valet car parking service where they found free parking spaces near the hotel and then fetched the car back when you wanted. The free wi-fi is also a lot better than I have experienced elsewhere.
Location - This is excellent being about two thirds of the way up the town, it is reasonably quiet and altogether delightful. You need to be aware that Modica is basically built up the side of a steep hill and there are about 400 steps to get to the bottom of the town. The hotel owner offered to pick us up to save the climb back but we preferred to do this to get some exercise.
Rooms - The main rooms in the hotel look wonderful but we were in the annex which is up an alley opposite the hotel. It was very comfortable, large, beautifully decorated, quiet and came with a bathroom that is about the size of many double bedrooms in London hotels, covered in marble and equipped with double basins, WC
