Our third stay in this lovely place. It’s like coming home every time. Everyone is friendly and welcoming. The breakfast is super compared to every other place we have stayed in Italy. A perfect mix of sweet and savory. The rooms are spacious and very clean with an amazing view of Etna. The restaurant, Berso, is very good and the prices very reasonable. Most of the staff do not speak English but they will make you feel right at home….

This is a very good family run hotel. Ideal for families and small groups. Comfortable rooms and bedding. Good breakfast. However, lacks of peps. Service is slow and not proactive. But you always get what you need. The dining room is too big and lacks atmosphere. Good value.

As per other reviews, a car is a must for this locality. Between two towns, there didnt appear to be a regular bus service in either direction from the hotel. Room was clean and tidy, nice dining room and staff, especially the two young ladies at breakfast who were excellent, and lovely pool area. The tv didn't have any English speaking channels and although someone came up to tune it it didn't seem to work. Would have been nice to catch up withe news while we were away. Wi fi stopped the day we arrived and was off for a couple of days and was a bit temperamental after that, perhaps that was just the second floor. The hotel does seem to rely on party bookings, there were a couple of birthdays and a graduation during our stay and service to hotel guests does suffer. Rather than the 2 week holiday we took a lot of people seem to use it for 2 to 3 days while touring the island and with hindsight thats perhaps what we should have done. I was disappointed with the menu as it didnt change throughout the fortnight we were there. You can only eat so much pizza! Extra staff during functions would be a plus, and more attention to keeping the breakfast buffet topped up also. Thank you for what was overall a pleasant stay.

A pleasant 7 day stay in this medium sized hotel. Many positives, comfortable rooms, good pool area, good breakfast selection (of mostly cold typically continental food), good and reasonably priced food in the restaurant and mostly very friendly and helpful staff. Worth stressing that you will definitely need a car (and GPS is money well spent). A few small areas where improvements would be quick and easy:- * Understandably the hotel caters for local parties and weddings as additional income, but please give your guests some warning. We anticipated a pool day for our last day only to find a notice outside the breakfast room that day that the pool would be closed from midday for the rest of the day for a wedding. We could easily have switched other days activities with a bit of notice. * Due to the above functions we waited for 20 minutes to park on one occasion, and twice our car suffered minor scratches overnight, presumably by party guests leaving and struggling to get out. This was particularly disappointing as there was a parking attendant around, so goodness knows what he was doing... * Coffee jug was small and kept running out at breakfast, why not have two jugs on the go? * On two evenings of eating by the pool the service was very slow, which definitely reduced the pleasure of the good food. One more waiter/waitress would have made a huge difference. But overall we would definitely recommend the hotel as you can probably tell from the relatively minor suggested improvements. Big thanks in particular to the front desk staff and the owner's daughter, who simply couldn't do enough, which was very much appreciated.

Dear customer, It was with great pleasure that we read and reflected on your suggestions. Your review was objective, constructive and very positive. The small points you have reported to us are suggestions that we believe lead to a big difference! Honestly we had already thought about improving the points you have reported to us, but certainly with your suggestions we have even more clear how to improve ourselves, constantly pursuing the improvement objective that is part of our management policy. As a first point, instead of just one day before, we will plan the warnings of possible closures of the pool three or four days in advance and we will also insert the notice that, if at an event the parking lot was full, the hotel guests can contact the reception that will activate to make available a parking space, which we already have the habit of occupying in order to make it available to hotel guests. Surely even one more coffee jug was a point on which we had reflected, but only on certain occasions put into practice. Personnel management, from parking to the waiter, is part of a service quality development project that we will pursue throughout the low season We thank you for appreciating our kitchen! You have been very welcome customers and your suggestions were an opportunity to stop and reflect on points of improvement that we had already evaluated and with your suggestions there are even more clear! Thank you very much Best regards

We had a very pleasant 7day stay at this beautiful hotel.The staff were very kind and always willing to help no matter how big or small the request. Traveling through out Europe we found that most hotels were not up to our standard of cleanliness but at this hotel the cleanliness was impeccable. The pool area was great with a beautiful view of Mt. Etna and the restaurant also had beautiful food and accommodated to any request our fussy little eater's had. A big thank you to Salvatore and his daughter for making it a very pleasant stay for us. ABSOLUTE GEM!!

I stayed at the Paradise with a small tour group. It was an excellent location for us to get around Sicily. The rooms were spotlessly prepared. We ate together as a group every evening. The food was excellent although not all deliverer to the table at the appropriate time. One of our number only received his first course after most of us had finished our meals. Service at the pool bar was slow as staff appeared to have to go elsewhere to get the drinks. Waiting at the bar could also be frustrating. Very polite staff although little English was spoken. Having read previous reviews I thought the Breakfast Buffet was excellent. A pleasant stay

We had a very pleasant three night stay in this family-run hotel. The hotel is extremely clean and the room was spotless. The hosts and staff were very nice and helpful and the food in the restaurant was very good. The swimming pool with a view on the Etna is great and surrounded by a well-maintained garden (with a very friendly gardener). All in all highly recommended!

I wanted to visit the birthplace of my mother, and so I chose this hotel for it's location. Upon arrival we were greeted by the proprietor, Salvatore. Although we did not speak the same language, he understood my mission. He led us out to his car and drove us into town to a beautiful ancient church. An awesome experience. Magical for me. The large manicured pool area has a great view of Mt. Etna. At night it becomes a romantic dining spot. I loved everything about this place!
