We spent our last 3 nights in Sicily at this hotel and it was the best by far. It is like a little paradise with its beautiful garden and swimming pool. The rooms are nice and big and decorated with great taste. Everything neat and perfectly clean. Great choice of food for breakfast and very good meals at the restaurant for a good price in comparison to other restaurants where we've been to. But the best part of this hotel is the staff, they are incredibly helpful and they really look out for you without even asking.

We are a family of 3 adults, we stayed 2 nights at the Alcantara resort. it is an easy drive from Gaggim to Taormina, to the northern slopes of mnth Ethna , or to the Alcatara natural park. The hotel is new, very clean, beatifully designed, and the staff are highly professional, friendly, very knowlegable and most helpful. Everything feels very luxurious except the price which was reasonable. breakfast was excellent, and here is my tip: have at least one dinner at the hotel restaurant. The semifredo they make is addictive!! We hope to come next time for a whole week. They have a lovely swimming pool but on May it is too cold to swimm.

From april 27 till may 05, we stayed at the Alcantara resort. We were surprised to find such a beautifull relaxing place in such a small town, close to touristic Taormina. The beautifull rooms, relaxing pool and stunning food made this stay to one we won't forget. Special compliment for the hotel staff, maître Gianfranco and the chef, who did everything possible to make our stay really complete !! The next time we will come back to Sicily to play golf, we will surely choose this hotel again. The fact that a new golf resort is currently built 500 mtrs from the hotel makes the choice even easier to make.
Tip; Make sure you have a rental car, public transport is not relyable in Sicily

I am a 65 year old Canadian male and stayed at this resort for ten days in April. I know a small amount of Italian and my title expresses my experiences here - spectacular . . . .

The meals in the restaurant are excellent, varied and competitively priced. My room was large, comfortable, clean, open and airy. I had a clear view of the top of Mount Etna from my porch. I am an avid amateur photographer and with a car I was able to make it easily to a variety of photogenic locations including Taomarina, Noto, and Caltagirone.

By far, the best part of my stay was my encounters with the owners and staff of the resort. Everyone was very professional but, beyond their occupations, they were genuinely concerned with both myself and my needs during my stay. As a result, I have come away from Sicily having a much better understanding of the place and the warm and engaging nature of it's people.

I have traveled through much of Italy. This place is a "gem".

We spent a week in this beautiful new resort. The location is excellent for excursions in the east of sicily. Not far away from Taormina but in a quiet area. A car is needed to get there. Great breakfast and the food in the restaurant was perfect. The staff is very friendly !!! The rooms are one of the cleanest we ever saw in italy. A place to remember !!!

Room Tip: ake a room on the first floor of the appartments.
