    Its a pretty hotel with nice grounds and the pool is lovely. Roberta the breakfast waitress was very helpful and pleasant.Granita + Brioche for breakfast was excellent, had to pay extra for it but was worth it.The Chinese resteraunte at the end of the road is good food + excellent value.Buses are cheap and easy to use.Wifi is free if you ask for a password.

    The room was far from luxurious and there was nothing "superior" about it The fan in the bathroom didn't work + the air con broke down 3 times in two weeks.Breakfast was the same every day, dried up scrammble egg,frankfurters + greasy bacon.Most of the staff were miserable.The receptionists were arrogant and gave the impression every thing was a chore. Emanuaella was the worst. You have to ask to be connected to Wifi and they disconnect you everyday so you have to keep asking to be reinstated.Very loud music is played constanlty throughout the hotel controlled by reception + refused to turn it off or down, a real nusiance when trying to relax quietly by the pool, especially when they keep skiping the songs they don'tlike every 2 mins.Hotel had functions + business meetings every day and these took preferance over holiday makers.We were even refused entery at the hotel gates on 2 evenings, as there was a pay to enter function on,in spite of showing our room card.Its in a run down area miles from any decent resteraunts and bars.There are 2 bars within walking distance one is "OK" the other pretty grim.Shuttle bus only 4 times a day and last one back is 9pm, if they remember to come.Taxis extortionate (E35 =£35 from airport, E15 from town both only 10 min drive).Catania has some nice buildings but is filthy place with litter and graffiti everywhere.There are far nicer Hotels in far nicer areas for less money.food + drink at the hotel very expensive and if you don't stipulate exactly what you want they will bring you the most expensive without telling you.We stayed for 2 weeks( 10 days too long) and even by the end no one recognised us or remembered our name. wouldn't recommend it and wouldn't go back

    The garden is wonderfull. The room is ok.

    No fun, the restaurant has a very poor menu on a very high price. The staff, even if they want to be helpful, they can'T. They know only italian language and they don't understand you. So better choose another hotel. They don't have free shuttle bus, they only have, 3-4 times a day, one van. So you have to pay more then 20 euro for one way to each destination.

    The room was large and clean.

    Although nice, we felt the room was over-priced (not good value for money). Also, the main reason we picked this hotel was because they advertised a free shuttle to/from the airport, but we discovered that the shuttle only operates a few times per day.

    Good rooms, perfect pool and food,

    I can recommend this hotel for family rest only.Uncomfortable location: far from beach and the city

  • Group of friends

    The shuttle bus only operates a couple of hours a day to the airport and city center.

    We liked the location and the outdoor restaurant which served traditional Sicilian food. The food was unique and delicious.

    We did not like the little assistance we received in confirming our flights and printing boarding passes. This should be a common request for an "airport" hotel. We were left on our own with an antiquated computer and a language issue (English/Italian). I ended up having to call my airline and arrive without passes. The afternoon receptionist who checked us in just could not be bothered.

    Great location for early airline flights. Great pool. Good food

    Airport shuttle should begin earlier in the morning as many people use the hotel for proximity to the airport

    Booked this hotel because of the shuttle as I needed to leave at 4.30 am for a flight Mentioned this when I booked Told the shuttle was not available , thought ok expected the taxi to be free of charge as the free service was advertised in the hotel It turned out there's a Charge again I thought its ok as it was only 2 miles to the airport , arrived at the airport on Friday morning the car driver tried to charge me 25 euro , we had a stand up row I just gave him 10 and walked away with a bad feeling about the hotel and my experience of Sicily

    Very nice pool, bit cold at that time though, but still got a chance to jump in.

    Bit expensive During end December as there is nothing can do then.

    Hotel was near to the airport and was quite luxurious. Staff at Reception (Emmanualla,Valentina,Jasmine and Alfredo were excellent - doing their very best to help make our visit a success. The breakfast was lovely and the girls on duty were prepared to help in any way. The grounds were beautiful, lush and extensive,with all sorts of lovely areas where you could sit and relax in the sun or shade. The pool looked very inviting but by mid October was starting to cool off. The shuttle bus at 8.30, 12.30 and 5.30 to downtown Catania or the airport was a help and the drivers Alfio and Lucas were great.

    The heavy Baroque style and it's pallid colours is not to everyones taste and the atmosphere tended to be 'dark' The bar in particular(despite some lovely furniture pieces) was very dismal. Most of the guests seemed to be business people ,probably on expense accounts. Just as well. A bottle of beer was 6 euros, spirit and mix was 13 and a glass of wine was 10. Only used the bar once and during our 5 days never saw anyone in there. What a shame - such a false economy. As mentioned we had a lovely room with a large balcony on the ground floor. Unfortunately our view was completely obscured by shrubbery which meant we could not see the lovely gardens and the room was further darkened. The greenery also encouraged the mosquitos. Did not eat in the restaurant as a meal for 4 with a drink would have been at least 200 Euros. I do not know what the food was like. There is no where ouside to eat and the gate in the woods/park nearby which allowed you to walk into Auchen supermarket is now kept looked. It cost 25 Euros each way for a taxi to take us the mile and a half there. We tried to walk into town but failed owing to our inability to cross the final road despite standing on a Zebra crossing for 10 minutes. In summing up - I would say that this is a lovely hotel with superstaff. If you just want to chill out -great but if you are going round and about you need a car. The 210 Euros per night that we paid for a double room was not good value and I would not return at that price. Having said that -I wish once again to thank all the staff for their exemplory attitude during our stay.

    Delicious food and very cosy design of the entire hotel

    No sea view, poor room service, surrounding beaches dirty.
