Chose this for the last night of the holiday to be close to the airport and so did not have great expectations but in hind sight wished we had stayed up market and taken the 1 hour drive to the airport. You will not see the entrance to the basement car park until you pull up on the busy main... More

It is difficult to say anything about this hotel. I had no problems, the staff was kind, but at the same time it was not really interesting. Parking is a problem and you cannot even go with your car to the entrance. When I take a hotel a little far from city center (like this one) I do expecting either... More

We walked in without a reservation and they accommodated us on the spot, the room was nothing special but more than adequate. We were very happy with our stay until we realized that because we had no reservation we paid probably double the regular rates for a very mediocre room on the first floor in the back. Seemed like they... More

One of our family members married in Sicile and this hotel had been chosen as a place of stay for all the wedding guests by the bride to make the organization and transportation easier. Our room was spacious with a huge terrace and the sea view. Bathroom was also very spacious (room 121 for 4 persons). It provided all the... More

Stayed there for 3 nights and it is a great base to explore sicily's east coast. It is not in the city centre which makes it easy to find free parking nearby and it is located in a quite new part of town, which prevents to see all the decaying buildings you would find in the city centre... The hotel,... More

We stayed at the Aga as a couple in the last week of June 2014. We unfortunately both had stomach upsets for the week (Not related to Aga) so spent more time than we really wanted at the hotel. I am basing this review on the price we paid which was £48 per night as part of an Easyjet package... More

Clean room with view and sea breeze view. Convenient to the airport, with a large open lobby. We had no problem with road noise or any issues with the room. Clean bathroom with plenty of space. The breakfast was on the rooftop and had a wonderful selection of juices, fresh fruit, eggs and breakfast meats, and yogurts. Enjoyed relaxing on... More

My husband and I stayed here for 1 night in May, to be nearer the airport for our return home. The hotel has absolutely nothing going for it; it does not have 4 star services, though it is clean and tidy. Our room overlooked the huge air conditioning plant at the back, noisy as well as ugly and a car... More

We booked this hotel for our honeymoon and paid extra money for a sea view room but we were very disappointed with what we got. The view was not much to speak of, there were no nice beaches or anything to walk along, instead there was the equivalent to the M3 in between the hotel and the litter-strewn lava cliffs... More
