Clean p- Modern HotelPosted Oct 6, 2017
Pros: Staff are most helpful and always willing to accommodate any complaints or requests.
Cons: Rooms in the Old accommodation could do with a facelift - possibly incorporating larger showers or a bath.
Location: The location is some 20 minutes drive from Siracusa where there are numerous archeological sites all worth a visit, If one is not part of a tour then
Nice clean modern Hotel with good facilities. Some bedrooms are apart from the main Hotel across a road -( beware when crossing as visibility is poor and cars drive too fast) The bedrooms in the separate accommodation are old and rather dated. However clean and well maintained. Advertised as a superior room with balcony - somewhat questionable however. A picture of theHotel showing a beach and sun umbrellas is rather misleading - Hotel is 5-10 minutes drive to the beach. The Hotel is some 20 minutes drive from Saracusa.. Roads in the area are extremely poor with numerous potholes and some unmade areas. If renting a car beware of these potholes which can ruin tyres etc.

Very good stay, outstanding pool area and spa was beautiful. Courtesy bus was very useful to get into Syracuse (20mins). Very enjoyable stay and helpful front desk. Polite and friendly staff, not always a given in this part of the world.

Luxury Hotel with huge poolPosted Aug 2, 2017
Two sides to the hotel separated by a minor road. The 5* side had the huge outdoor pool, indoor pool, extensive gym and main hotel complex. We were based on the 4* side in the original hotel villa which was beautiful, clean and modern. We stayed in a family room which was fine for a family of four- room was air conditioned. Brilliant breakfast and good lunch options by the pool during the day. Great friendly staff but the best thing was the free shuttle service into beautiful ortigia which was perfect for evening meals. You don't want to be driving into Ortigia due to the traffic, so this saved significant taxi fares. Ortigia has many quality restaurants down winding streets and the harbour has done cool bars overlooking the super yachts

Older converted villa (quirky & comfortable) and small modern spa hotel, one business, on either side of a country road. 20 mins drive to Syracuse. Superb staff, immaculately clean, good food with lots of choice, lovely pool /gardens.Shuttle provided by hotel to/ from Syracuse several times per day...just book in advance. Spa good with reasonable prices. Well equipped, air-conditioned hotel gym. Had a terrific stay & would recommend.
Good choice for a relaxed stay.Posted Jul 15, 2017 on Hotels
Stylish hotel with a charming original house. Easy access to Siracusa on the free shuttle bus and they arrange transfers to the nearby beach club. . Two good pools. Nice garden grounds. Good breakfast buffet. We had massages in the spa which was very relaxing. We ate supper in Ortigia restaurants to soak up the atmosphere. .

Great service in a pretty locationPosted Aug 2, 2016 on Hotels
Wonderful, very nice staff and a car to take you to the beach and collect on demand. 15 mins by shuttle to Syracuse so easy to have a quiet or busy experience in the same day. We loved it!
Perfect hideawayPosted Jan 9, 2016 on Hotels
Once you find the hotel which was on a beaten path, you'd be heart struck with the serenity and beauty of the sicilian countryside. One side of the property is traditional sicilian where we stayed at and very happy with. perfect and tasteful deco, comfy beds, decent sized bathroom and good toiletry. the other side of th property is the communal area, spa and restaurant. perfectly modern yet with an elegant italian spin. sitting outside the lounge area with a view of the nicely arranged garden and swimming pool sipping orange juice can't be more satisfying. breakfast is amazing with lots of selections. front desk is super helpful and friendly. she even worked late into the night helping us separate a large bed into two single ones as we reserved. Our group of five can't say enough good things about this 4-star hotel and 5-star spa property. Perfect hideaway for peace of mind and relaxation.
