We recently stayed there and found the staff to be as helpful as possible but our accommodation was a big let down. Although we were given a very large room with a sea view the fittings were mostly not there. There was just one very large wardrobe with a hanging rail you needed to be a good 6ft to reach.....

Don't get me wrong. My husband and I had a good experience here. We enjoyed their breakfasts on the roof top. The food they served was a cut above the other places we have stayed in Sicily. Most of the restaurant staff was friendly, although a couple were rather indifferent. The reception staff was very friendly and helpful and gave...

Hotel personal at the front desk could be more friendly with Children it seemed that they never saw one before in that hotel! Room was ok confortable beds, good cleaned bathroom and room. They could renew their curtains and their window decorations, they are too old and dirty that when we open the window it came dust from that stuff...

First of all, Employee level is too low. There was no hot water and the refrigerator in our Room did not work. When we called reception, the receptionist just said I'm alone and I'm not technicians.... The room is like a servant room, which is narrow although it faced the sea. Untrustworthy star rating. We never choose this hotel and...

We were delighted by our stay in this hotel. The location is fantastic with the breakfast on the terrace, parking facilities and a professional massage center. Don't miss the gourmet restaurant. We'll be back soon!

5 stars overlooking the charming harbour and the sea. Valet parking available, suit case handled, great reception and service as well as prote beach accessible by the hotel's boat. Also the grand view from the rooftop terrace for breakfast is unbeatable ! As for the rooms, well, not all are bien equal... I would recommend one if the central bedrooms...

The hotel is located in the old part of Syracuse on what is really an island and overlooks the yacht harbour. This is an old building that has been refurbished and the rooms are not large. The decor is traditional. They are however pleasant and airy. Some of the rooms on the first floor are on two levels with the...

The room has been reserved for you was ready at your arrival (in the morning) , but as...

A grand hotel very well looked after. Rooms vary in size some with only shower. Bed comfortable good sized bathroom. Fridge, Tv, etc. Rather lacking in clothes space. Wonderful top floor restaurant, breakfast okay let down by awful hot food selection. No proper croissants. Good service, dinner was good on two nights. Right in old town so plenty of choices...

It's'always nice to be back! Having breakfast on the terrace is the best way to start a new day...and a dinner at the restaurant is a great way to end a day! Try risotto with the swordfish, orange, lemon and lime with a (couple) of wine glasses. It is worth the trip :-) Thanks to Martina and all the staff...
