We spent a five days vacation at this beautiful hotel. But we arrived at noon, we wanted to eat something, but the hotel doesn't have room service, so there was nothing to eat, the area where the hotel is located, was also sleeping. So no open restaurants. It is better to book an hotel in Catania or Taormina It's a... More

The hotel is located far from everything and you'll need a car to get around. It is a very nice clean and modern place. The salt water pool is very nice and you have direct access to the sea (rocky with stairs). Rooms are very comfortable and clean, so are the facilities. The staff is very nice and helpfull. The...

Santa Tecla Palace Hotel is a very unique property. Totally different from all other properties in the area since it stands by the sea and is surrounded by a beautiful estate that offers the sense of absolute peace and privacy. Nothing similar to other hotels in the area. Even-though the hotel is build by the sea I have to mention... More

Right upon our return from a wonderful break in Sicily at Santa Tecla Palace I thought of getting into tripadvisor and sharing my experience with our world. The hotel is exquisite and has an amazing privacy standing alone with no neighboring hotels or even houses that makes you feel like you are staying in your private house or villa. Even... More

Santa Tecla Palace Hotel was the best choice we could have made for our first visit in Sicily and the area of Catania. The very first impression while approaching the hotel from above the main street was just so great since we did not expect to find an estate but just a standard 4 stars hotel like the others we...

We ended up at this hotel due to a hotel change whilst on a Sicilian touring holiday. All I can say is how lucky we were. This hotel is on the rocks at sea level. Wonderful views, with plenty of sunbeds and lifeguards on duty from 9am - when it opens, till 6.30pm when it closes. The evening meal was... More

The hotel was nice and rooms were OK semi clean. had to ask few times the cleaning crew to come and do extra cleaning - had lots of aunts and mosquitoes. The hotel in general is great and beautiful. 100s of rooms and sometimes they do entertainment at night or throughout the day. The best part was the pool- a... More
