Our room was comfortable and the bed good. The sea view was very small because there was another building in front. In the pool area there was no place to sit because there were a lot of people up until late in the afternoon. You had to get up early in the morning if you wanted to find a place... More

We stayed here for three nights at the start of a week's guided coach tour and were very happy to return for the final night of the tour. Our arrival was slightly chaotic as 50 tired tourists tried to locate the rooms with 400 and 500 numbers when the hotel only has three floors with rooms. These rooms are all... More

I stayed here for a week after booking a cheap getaway deal from England. I read the reviews and did not expect a big tourist presence in Riposto, but that did not bother me. During my stay, I didn't see any other hotels and it seems that Riposto is a holiday destination for Italians, largely. Having said that, the hotel... More

We were a party of four adults and had two spacious, clean rooms for a week last July. My dad was there as a returning WW2 veteran on the Hero`s return scheme. We were well looked after by the staff and ate and drank well. The hotel is well situated near the sea-front but still with easy parking if you... More

Had a few days in Riposte and stayed at the Grand Yachting Place. Helpful staff who made good restaurant recommendations. A good base for day trips to Etna, Taormina, Catania and Syracuse. And Riposte itself is a really nice little place, as well. We liked it as tourism is still emerging here, so you get a slightly more authentic feel... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon. I will start by saying that the hotel staff were very helpful and polite. We took the half board option, the evening meal was nice but very small helpings and very little choice. The only wine available is the house white or red which is not the best (despite there being a display cabinet... More

The hotel is situated by the sea, near the centre with good promenade walks, shops and parking outside - very convenient. Riposto is a fishing village which is undergoing a 'revamp' to boost tourism, squares have been enhanced, the marina is brand new and the promenade being widened. It is a characterful, truly Italian town where tourism is barely noticeable;... More
