It is only a small hotel with a few rooms and a fantastic view. The pool is clean and large enough for the hotel. Parking is on site. The receptionists were helpful and breakfast was typically Sicilian. The suites were large and well kept. There were plenty of small seating areas dotted around the hotel. Wifi is only available around...

Visited this area of Sicily in June with a group of friends. Quaint and clean hotel with a few rooms in a quiet area with beautiful scenery. Spacious and clean rooms with a balcony overlooking great countryside views. 30 minutes away from Taormina.

We spent three days here on our honeymoon. The location is excellent, we had a very nice view from our room on the Alcantara river. The swimming pool is not huge but very refreshing. Staff is very friendly and helps you when needed. We got some excellent tips for visiting the area from our very helpful hostesses. From Il Borgo...

Il Borgo has wonderful, far-reaching views of the gorge and surrounding mountains from the pool-side, though you will not get these from some parts of the hotel – especially from the hotel-facing side of the new annexe part where we stayed. Our room was spacious enough with a large king size bed (very firm mattresses). The room had good air...

Great spot, nice large pool (which was pleasantly cool first week of July!), super friendly and helpful staff. We probably had the best room (nr 12), huge, quiet, with a great view, private court yard. Great opportunities for trips, ok restaurants close by (especially Uliveto Grill and the new pizza place in Gaggi). The menu changes daily at the restaurant,...

We enjoyed our one night stop here on our walking tour in Sicily. We were made to feel most welcome when we arrived tired and thirsty. The food and local wine was delicious and we would have liked to stay longer! The surrounding countryside is fantastic for walking or just sitting by the pool looking out over the lush green...

Don't be fooled by the advertising, this property looks a lot bigger than it really is. The pool is very small, the parking area small and not very convenient. Most of the rooms are in a "new" block just across from the original building and can be quite noisy as it is designed with rooms off one corridor which is...

My wife and I, on a recommendation from another holidaymaker we met, had dinner here one night whilst we were staying elsewhere in Gaggi. The staff could not have been more friendly and the quality of the food and table wine was simply excellent. This was the best food we found in the Gaggi area.
