We stayed here and had an amazing time. We traveled there for the San Giovanni Festival held in June. We rented two of the family residences and they were comfortable and spacious. It is a bit of a distance to the quaint town of Acitrezza, and would recommend renting a car or hiring a driving service to escort you around... More

The hotel is located not so far way from the old town of Acitrezza, although you do need a car to reach it. Of course if you are prepared to take a 30 minutes walk one way (uphill included), you can try, but do not recommend it. Having a car it was very easy to reach lots of restaurants, lounge... More

We stayed in the Hotel part of Galatea Sea Palace. The facilities were great, bedrooms were very large and service was generally very good. Breakfast is adequate but limited. Decking area leading out to the sea was lovely. Swimming pool too small for amount of people and in general too many children! This is a place for families and we... More

Our accommodation and parking was safe.Nice and big enough room but without view. When we booked the room it was mentioned one double bed or two single beds so we asked for a double bed.We did not imagine that the double bed would be two single beds pushed together.We do not know if Italian are used to call a double...

Was a wonderful relaxing stay , Just before the season started . Get a room with ocean view. Many wonderful fish restaurants in the area. Suggest renting a car or scooter day trip to Syracuse. Rooms are large and clean with modern bathrooms / only breakfast could improve however normal for Italy. Add some fresh juice / fruit

We went in octomber so we couldnt really enjoy the swimming pool.Cleaning was inadequate in the bathroom, however they were fast in fixing the problem.A little bit far... More

I stayed at this hotel for a week in September 2012 and stayed on the second floor with a lovely sea view, well worth the extra cost. Reception staff was very helpful and towels were provided to use around the pool. Wi-Fi access has to be paid for but there is a room with a computer to use for free.... More

We stayed at Galatea Sea Palace for 6 nights. We had a sea-view room but only used the deck to dry our towels due to the lack of privacy. Also, the view from the ground-floor wasn't all that great. The rooms were very big and clean. There is no beach but there is a large private deck and two separate... More
