The hotel is rather hard to find - I strongly recommend you use GPS co-ordinates rather than the address, but when you arrive you will find lovely comfortable and clean rooms. A pool that is fantastic and the restaurant is terrific! Dinner and breakfast were both great!

This is a very nice, rather small hotel (32 rooms). The swimming pool is absolutely fabulous. Everything is clean and well maintained. The hotel has a very good restaurant, where you can eat delicious (slow) food. We were very satisfied during our stay. We had one complaint, which we told the manager. The manager took his responsibility and did everything... More

We stayed here middle of September, though it felt more like end of November. We actually only stayed there to enjoy the pool with view. The water was pretty chilly when we came and incredibly dirty. Also the grass next to the pool wasn't taken care of. You have a nice infinity pool and then it gets ruined by high... More

Absolutely stunning experience and one of the highlights of our month in Italy. We initially started at town house Messina Hotel, the Enrico kindly arranged for our transfer to his other hotel in Villafranco on the coast. The hotel is large, spacious cool rooms with large beds, air conditioning, Tv etc but the outdoor pool area with large infinity pool... More

We (my firends and I) were booked into the 'Messina Town House Apartments' in Messina. While waiting for our rooms - we spotted a brochure for this fabulous looking resort up in the hills. When the Manager arrived (Enrico), and we questioned where the resort was....he happily replied it was his other Hotel. So...... we moved to this grand hotel,... More

While staying at this place we had no desire to go anywhere else, like explore nearby towns, go to the ocean etc. – it really calmed me down. It's was a quick drive from Messina, but once we were there it felt like in the middle of nowhere. You can see the nearby towns and the ocean, everything is close,... More

Our visit was not the first time and will definetly be not the last. In fact we were given a discount. The location is superb but on windy days, the noise can be a bit irritating. Service from staff and room were impeccable. They even provided us a baby cot free of charge and on arrival we found our room... More

This was the first of three hotels we used in Sicily, and was the most expensive. The location is stunning, and it wasn't as hard to find as we had feared. You don't need to go through Calvaruso, you can get there from Villafranca. We did like it - good rooms, we had a good meal in the restaurant, but... More

Dear Mr. Clive, we want to give a great importance to your suggestions in order to improve our breakfast time but I want to tell you that I personally hate the coffee machine of the Italian hotels! Our American coffee is there only for tourist people that order long American coffee. But there is ALWAYS the possibility to order Italian... More

This hotel pridely displays the tripadvisor certificate of excellence at the reception. Indeed, they are doing a lot of things right. The main feature of the hotel is the large infinity pool with an incredible view over the town and the ocean. The rooms are all one floor down which gives them a bit of a basement feel. The rooms...
