Went in July 2013 and loved it so much returned in September with friends. Beautiful views from every room, friendly staff - especially Rosie on reception - fabulous infinity pool. Breakfast has good choices and restaurant and pool snack bar both serve excellent food. Highly recommend.

Visited here on a Groupon deal back in June & was just delighted with everything - such amazing value for money. Yes you need a car to get about but so what?? This just enables you to see more of beautiful Sicily! The view from the hotel is simply breath-taking!! We could sit on the balcony for hours just drinking... More

What a lovely hotel. We arrived into a beautiful Sicilian town with amazing views and up on the hill over looking it all was the hotel. Our room was lovely with views that were unbelievable, if only I could wake up to that every morning. It was clean, nicely furnished and we had a balcony with chairs to sit and... More

We booked a bargain 3 night stay with Groupon, so we had no real expectations of the hotel except it would make a good base to explore North Sicily. We were so pleasantly suprised; the views from our room and the pool area are exceptional; absolutely beautiful, the room was pleasant / clean, the hotel is decorated in a funky... More

Myself and my husband stayed that this property in October this year. It was fabulous. It is hard to find, it takes at least two hours to drive from Palermo Airport and it took almost as long to find the hotel itself. Although despite this, we had a wonderful time. The pool was fantastic and at this time of year... More

Beautiful hotel rooms, beautiful views, excellent facilities and the best and friendliest staff ever! I cant rate the hotel and staff highly enough. The only small down point was the restaurant, the buffet breakfast was excellent, but it would have been a better experience if there had been a restaurant facility providing meals in the evening as we did have...

Just arrived home after a weeks stay at the hotel. Rooms nice and clean, pool area unbeatable. We were further tempted by the hotel when we had read it was not in a touristic location, however this proved to be the biggest downfall of the trip. There is nothing to do and the locals were unwelcoming, not a smile to... More

It's a good location when you want to discover sicily by car, stay in one place and move on to the next one... sea view rooms, good service, friendly staff, great pool. You can use your own navigation or in the car to find this hotel or simply ask them for directions :) Cheers

Pro's: We really enjoyed our week there. The hotel was very nice, free wifi in the reception and pool areas, wonderful dinners, views are outstanding, pool was the nicest I've ever had. If you are looking to be busy all day, this is not for you. Little animation, but that's exactly what we wanted. Just to relax and enjoy the... More

Pro's: The hotel is not well sign posted at all and quite hard to find. The rooms are average but nice, however as the hotel is set back into a hill and on different levels, there are lifts to get to them and if you were on the top floor it would take three lifts to get there but it... More
