Main positive of this huge hotel is definitely its location in the woods on eastern Etna slope. There is beautiful view from many rooms as well as from the roof terrace. I appreciate the reception staff, which was very nice and professional. On the other hand I didn't feel agreeable in the restaurant at all. The waitresses were unfriendly and...

This hotel will give you the best imaginable landscapes, since it permits you to see from the mountain to the see of the Catania gulf, but also, in the clearest hours, to look to the coasts of Calabria. On the other hand the hotel could use a general maintenance, the cleaning service should be improved and the furnitures and accessories...

We are sad to be leaving our new "home away from home" here at the Emmaus Hotel in Zafferana Sicily. The Hotel is located in an exciting area, so close to interesting Zafferana and an enjoyable and interesting drive to the spectacular town of Taormina. The very courteous and helpful staff at the Hotel arranged for an all day taxi...

The Staff very polite! They provide for really good service!!! Rooms are clean and the Director is always available. The hotel is a perfect place for those who are looking for something quite although not to far from the city immersed in the nature, very close to Etna vulcan and near to beautiful places.

Away from Italian cities, the tranquility of the setting is supreme. The hotel and the staff are excellent and we spent a wonderful week there. Highly recommended. Unfortunately, my wife came down with a severe cough, blocked ears, nose, etc and we needed a doctor. Enter Sig. KETTY DI GIACOMO, the hotel receptionist. When told of our medical problem, she...

We visited Emmaus in Sicily because of its beautiful and lovely location. Our experience was traumatic to the point we won't recommend it to our worst enemies. The room was very nice, view the best on the island. Our holiday was totally ruined by a group of youngsters in their 20s who continuously moved furniture, played loud music on their...

Dear Messrs.

I have been there both with my family and also with a group and I must say that both the hotel itself and the surroundings are fantastic. Rooms are in tip top shape, breath taking views as the hotel is high up on the slopes of Etna with views from Siracusa to Taormina with a glimpse of mainland Calabria when...
