Beautiful kept grounds, spotlessly clean rooms, friendly staff who remember your name. Valet parking free and always prompt. Buffet breakfast good quality and efficient staff. Splendid Italian typical restaurant design - Good quality food and good service. Honestly a home away from home! Only 1 hour 20 min from Pozzallo and 15 min from Catania Airport. This place is ideal... More

We spent four days in heaven. I can safely say this. We were a party of 12 adults and three little kids who spent their days playing with three little kittens, swinging at the swings and splashing in a well sized pool. We also had some particular culinary needs who we're attended to without any nays or says. The food... More

Perfect place to stay for a sicilian discovery tour, airport and beach "La Plaia" is very close, beautiful landscape, nice people, rich lunches. It was a real treat to be there, I would love to come back next time I travel to Catania!

We started our Sicilian holiday in Il Giardino del Sole, primarily because of its proximity to Catania Airport (20 mins) and to Mount Etna and Siracusa (both about one hour's drive). Having read many positive reviews, our expectations were high - and they were fully met. Our rooms were spotless and were cleaned every day. The food was excellent and... More

We had a bungalow would have liked to have a kettle maybe but always got coffee just the same when wanted. Pizza is very good... More

I have been to Il Giardino del Sole for several times and will always make it a point to use these facilities when in Sicily. Il Giardino del Sole is situated in a quite relaxing area of Carlentini (AKA Lentini) some 30 Km of Catania. The place is spectacular and is also ideal for family holidays. In fact our children...
