We were part of a group relocated to this hotel from an overbooked hotel in Giardini-Naxos. Lovely sea view from our balcony. Large, well-appointed room with a very comfortable king bed and more spacious closet/wardrobe than most in Sicily. Good bathroom with plenty of counter space, a real plus. AC too cold for us, temp could only be adjusted by...

The room was large, with two queen size beds, a large wardrobe, tv, air conditioning, minibar and a functional bathroom. We were upgraded to a room with a sea view and a terrace and it was just beautiful. There is free wi-fi, but it onl works if you register your details. Our room was quiet. We had dinner and breakfast...

We only stayed two nights. Staff very good & attentive, know what service is all about. Rooms comfortable (make sure you get a sea view, otherwise blank). Infinity pool, sun deck area great. Food wise, could be better, but better than other hotels we have stayed in on the Island. Overall, would come back here again.

When coming to Sicily, we shall count with the fact tjhat majority of staff will not speak English, which happened and I did not mind. The room was nice, spacious, nice view. Unfortunately the aircon did turn off, which we did not like. Otherwise that location is amazing.. far from other touristic places with many foreigners. Majority of the guests...

AWFUL! Excellent position, fantastic sea. Too noisy, GM is a very unpleasant lady. Speaks only Sicilian. A la carte dinner? Too expensive. Better drive to Taormina that is only few miles away and have a decent dinner. AWFUL service. Nice people but badly managed!

I've been here with my fiancé and two friends of mine. Our experience was very good. The hotel provides very nice rooms with many amenities (i.e. pay per view channels...), a stunning pool directly in front of the sea, three restaurants (the one outside is really amazing), lounge bar and a direct access to the sea. Probably the hotel is...

Very nice hotel. The new rooms with the sea view are great. The pool is special and it has also a private beach. The only disadvantage is that it's far away from everything, but we didn't care, it was worth it. Very peaceful and special.

Really very cool and nice hotel! Good rooms, amazing swimming pool! And very very nice staff here. One moment they have own beach , but it's without sends, and when you go inside to the sea you go from stairs, so it's not ok for small children ;) It's very good for different kind of people. They have tennis court,...

The hote is located in a quiet place. Not far from the city. The rooms are nice, But not equipped as expected. Amazing sea view. I recommend a room with a sea view on a high floor. Average hotel, nice and not expensive.
