This hotel is a bit dated and not 5* compared to other 5* places we have stayed. The hotel looks nice but behind the scenes it needs some work. The hotel pizzeria was below average. Much better pizzas can be found in catania for much cheaper prices. The setting is nice though. The 'free cocktails' token given to us a...

I stayed with my husband for 7 nights at this hotel. It's a nice hotel, with beautiful gardens and very nice areas in the grounds, interesting design. So, the atmosphere is lovely and chilly. We didn't feel the distances, because we had a rented car. From this point of view, the hotel is near an exit to free way (located...

This hotel is trying to be a luxury Hotel but it falls way short and in doing so it has no soul. The pool area, the room and the grounds are very good and so is the breakfast. Unfortunately, the hotel is a EU15 taxi ride (EU 20 if you don’t engage with him) each way to town and it...

Only a one night stay, before our Journey back to Manchester, England. The hotel impressed with its chilled atmosphere and lovely rooms. We then sat pool side, for most of the afternoon. The tranquility of the hotel is sprinting, considering its location, in the hustle and bustle of Catania

The room was very good, very well isolated and had a nice terrace. It is good that there is a swimmingpool, but it is too small for the size of the hotel.

Several issues with this hotel- will bullet point to make it quicker! - extortionate prices in the hotel. €12 for a drink, apparently rum and coke counts as a cocktail. As do most drinks.
