We class ourselves as an easygoing couple when it comes to just getting our head down somewhere but here couldn't have been worse! Terrible location, staff quiet rude, gym = non existent and the pool remained closed for our duration of stay! We stayed in 7 different hotels on our 7 day tour of Sicily and this was ranked bottom!

We have just returned from a 4 day stay, we travelled with some friends, from our first encounter, to our check out we received terrible service! For a 4 star hotel the rooms were very spartan and the bathroom appeared as though it had not been cleaned in months. We found the hotel staff unhelpful, rude, bordering sarcastic when we... More

I have just returned from a 3-day stay here – I travelled with my daughter. I read the comments of others on Trip Advisor before I left and so was well aware of what to expect. The hotel itself is clean and safe. The public areas are nicely furnished and comfortable – while the rooms are a bit behind in... More

I am very unaccostomed to writing negative reviews, but feel compelled to write a realistic review to balance the largely positive reviews of this hotel. My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights in July, and were both left very disappointed by the experience. Our initial impression of the hotel very much marred by very unpleasant front office staff... More

Very poor location, far from city center. Rooms are OK but not 4* at all. Reception staff seems to hate tourists. Lacks courtesy and even good manners. Bar and restaurant service is average and personnel try to be frindlier. Poor breakfast. All in all it was not a good experience.

Very basic hotel bit off from the action. Along the road that has heavy traffic and it's a bit of a walk to the central, but bus is a good way to travel here. Hotel staff was friendly and the breakfast was good. This hotel does the thing, but no luxury here.

Very 1970s style hotel, but it has a small gym, roof top swimming pool (take a swmming hat, other wise they charge you 1.50 euro for one, and it is obligitory to wear one), and we had a fantastic sea view- amazing view! The bathroom is clean, but does have a dowdy feel to it ( and a shower curtain,... More

Booked for 7 days, checking out after 1 night. Horrible view from our room (unfinished high rise building) on the 10th floor, bunch of dogs barking in the morning, no access to the sea, dirty shower, no english channels on tv, bar near the swimming pool closed, looks like this hotel is empty even in a mid season - (just...
