My mother and I stayed at the Grand Hotel Villa Igiea recently for six nights and had a sea view room. Even before we arrived the service provided by AMT Hotels was excellent in helping to organise a two week holiday in Sicily which involved staying in three of their hotels in Palermo, Taormina and Syracuse with transfers. The Villa... More

Our family of five (two older and one younger child) spent a night in Palermo at the start of a two week break in Sicily during which we visited various places on the island. Of all the spots we visited only one was not worth it - Taormina, a ghastly hole packed with tourists where everything costs twice as much... More

The paint on the walls are chipped, the carpet stained and frayed, the bathroom needs updating and the faucets leek. Internet is available only in the lobby and some public areas for free.

We spent 2 enjoyable night at the Villa Igiea. We had to cut short our planned stay in Scopello due to a brush fire which caused evacuation of our hotel. We were flying out of Palermo and searched for a central hotel with a pool - to compensate for missing planned dips in Scopello. Got a good last minute rate... More

Beautiful hotel with stunning surrounds. Overall we were happy with this hotel because we just wanted to relax and enjoy the stunning views on our honeymoon.

We stayed at the GHVI for 3 nights in early July 2014. The property is beautiful and overall well kept considering its age. The buffet breakfast was a delight, the setting wonderful and the service was excellent. Outside of breakfast, I found the service lacking for a hotel of this standing. We tried using the services of the Concierge one... More

Just came from a wonderful hotel in Siracusa. Igiea is interesting but has limits on food choices, amenities and is located in a ghetto. Staff were not very accommodating and just seemed so dissimilar from the encounters in our last hotel. Very disappointed. We had higher expectations based upon the pricing differences. I'm currently at the hotel
