A really restful holiday!
Posted Jul 16, 2008
This hotel (in the form of terraced bungalows) has the most beautiful garden! The pool is very large and spotless, the water is just the right temperature. The food is fabulous, beautifully presented with a good variety of sicilian dishes. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a very peaceful place, with open views to the hills behind. You would definitely need a car. The beach is very near the hotel and you can walk though the path to it is anything but attractive. The hotel has a private beach with sunbeds and umbrellas. The only downside was that our shower cubicle needed replacing as the door just wouldn't stay on its runners and it was mouldy. The room was basic but the bed was large. The hotel hosted a number of local wedding receptions, anniversaries and birthday parties in the evenings. There was no entertainment as such but a singer/musician played some evenings but it was the same music each time. The poolside bar was hardly in operation, which was a shame. You really need to either speak some italian or have a dictionary there, as English is not spoken by the majority of either the staff or the people in that part of Sicily (menu in Italian). Overall we really really enjoyed ourselves, it was very quiet ... like being in our own private garden with fab pool!
