        The restaurant staff were very attentive and we had a good meal.

        There were no prices on the menu, nor was there a wine list, so our bill when we came to check-out was rather more than we had anticipated.

      • Older travelers

        Very calm, quiet location. Reasonable room rate. Excellent pool area.

        Restaurant pricing was a little high compared to room prices.

      • Older travelers
        6.2

        The lush landscaping around the hotel, and around its large, beautiful swimming pool.

        The hotel hosted a wedding party on the Saturday night we were there. The music, the dj and the guests were so noisy that we did not get to sleep until 1 A.M. In the morning, we asked for a discount due to the noise, but our request was declined.

        good level of service, quite place, excellent swimming pool

      • Couple

        Great swimming pool and leisure area outside. Dinners in the restaurant (very god food unless they make you choose the fixed menu that happened once) at the swimming pool. Room spacious, clean, with a balcony. Pretty close to Etna (Rifugio Sapienza) - just 25 km.

        Hotel staff was not very helpful (we had problems with the Internet connection), restaurant staff very busy and rather cold. You need a car there - buses pass the hotel but you never know what time. Staff at breakfast slow, small choice of food for a 4 star hotel.

        I really liked the cleaniness and the comfort of the room. The breakfast was abundant and I really appreciated the prompt service of the personnel in charge of the preparation and the layout of the breakfast.

        I must say that one particular person at the reception was not always helpful. A service with a smile surely attracts the client's sympathy and ensures future bookings.

        My wife and I enjoyed the nice pool surrounded by lush vegetation, the specious and very clean room,

      • Family with children
        7.0

        The hotel was nicely furnished and maintained.

        On the night of our stay, there was a reception held out at the poolside. The music from the reception was clearly heard in our rooms until after 1 am. I might as well have been down at the poolside with all the folks in attendance, I felt like I was there anyway. Also, due to the events going on at the hotel, parking was difficult. We did manage to find space in a lot of the back side of the hotel, but did not feel that the car was safe there.

      • Older travelers
        9.6

        All staff very friendly and helpful with some english spoken. Fresh continental style breakfast available between 7.30 & 10am. Beautiful well kept green garden surronding attractive pool area and terrrace restaurant. Easy access to motorway without there being traffic noise. Excellent clean attractive room with air con, balcony, mini bar & snacks available.Restaurant adequate, menu not exciting but terrace pleasant dining area .Easy parking - would recommend this hotel without hesitation.Good value for money.

        A real challenge to find even when returning by car after several days stay. Not signed from North & west directions.

        The free wifi,pool and breakfast

        I had lunch in the restaurant on my first day and was charged €18 for it.The grilled chicken was tasty,I got 2 breasts for €8,which was very good,then I got a mixed salad which comprised of a plate of lettuce which was €4,rip off,I was charged for the butter and bread,my water was €4,then charged extra to sit there,some of the details are hazy but for what I got,€18 was way too much to charge.They think they can get away with these prices because there is no where else to eat in or around the hotel,it's hidden away from civilisation.

        To loudness outside 3 pers.. Works an new building near the swimmingpool !!!!!! now thermo glasses on the windows dogs very loudness in to the night !!!!!! very old accomodation !!!! bay bay...

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        The hotel staff were very welcoming and helpful and rhe room and facilities all that could be asked. The hotel ambiance is of a tranquill tropical refuge despite its location in a fairly non-descript district. It is easily accessible to major roads into the city, airport and countryside, and especially Mt Etna itself. The food at breakfast and on the dinner menu was better than adequate, well presented and service super,

        A great pity that the roof terrace with superb view up the mountain is not better used.

      • Couple
        7.8

        Chose the hotel mainly for the outdoor swimming pool. This is really very nice and amongst well set out attractive garden area. Room spacious, staff very friendly, very good all round for a weekend break and ideal for trips up to the mountain towns.Interesting prints/reproductions of paintings everywhere that someone spent a lot of care doing.

        Perhaps in need of a little modernising and workover of decor and furnishing but overall and especially for special price no complaints.

      • Family with children
        8.2

        The swimming pool & the dinner in the garden with buffet and roasted meat. Location is very useful to visit Syracuse, Taormina and to go to Catania airport. Staff was very kind

        The air conditioning was a little bit noisy

      • Family with children
        9.2

        Very nice hotel, and very good and quiet location. Very clean area. Perfect for travellers with car, as the hotel has ample car park space.
