We were going to Syracusa for a professional meeting, and discovered while traveling in Sicily how very hot it was. Too hot to stay without air-conditioning. We canceled another reservation due to the lack of a/c, and booked the Kalaonda. What a lovely surprise to find this quiet, serene retreat. Beautifully restored old vineyard. Very clean, Zen atmosphere. Highly recommend... More

We have stayed here four times now and love it. Great pool area with beautiful paved surroundings set in a courtyard of converted buildings. The staff are very friendly and helpful and really make you feel at home. The on site restaurant produces wonderful typically Sicilian food. We have also stayed in Ortygia but found it better to be based... More

We have visited Kalaonda every year since it opened. We have recommended friends to stay here as well. Everyone has loved it. The staff are charming, friendly and helpful, the food is excellent, the pool is lovely and immaculately clean and it provides a perfect rural, yet convenient location from which to enjoy Ortigia, Siracusa and the beautiful sights and...

Peaceful hotel located in the countryside near Syricusa, right next to a plantation of cherry tomatoes. The swimming pool is convenient for children as from 4 years old. Wifi available only in common spaces.

The good things first: the hotel is quite nice, the pool is okay and breakfast is fine (for Italian standards). However, we could hardly relax there. Most annoying is that you will be waken up around 6.30am by shooting sounds (coming from an anti birds maschinery from the fields surrounding the hotel). This sounds must be endured all day long!...

Vexed and frustrated by the cold shower and the cold shoulder displayed by the management of this so-called 4-star hotel. Still waiting for a resolution after 5 nights of hot water problems. Front office tried explaining plumbing issues to me but I AM ON A HOLIDAY!! The manager himself didn't even bother to leave me a note to apologise for... More

The Kalaonda Plemmirio is a beautiful hotel set in a converted olive farm only a few minutes drive from Syracuse. Each room (actually a small suite with separate living and sleeping areas) is accessed from a courtyard that was kept spotless and swept every morning by the staff. The food both at breakfast and from the restaurant was excellent and... More

Kalaonda delivers on its promise of a restful, unique "Relais de Silence" member property with a nice pool, a great setting, modern and tasteful rooms, good food and pleasant staff. One (very friendly and well-intentioned) waiter for 25 patrons at dinner is unacceptable, and we experienced this all three nights. The furniture around the pool is uncomfortable and requires cushions,... More

My family and I spent a night at this hotel during a trip around Sicily in July. I wanted a hotel with a pool near to SYracusa for sightseeing, based on the hotel description, photos and partly reviews I booked this hotel and was not disappointed with my choice! The hotel is beautiful ! There is a very relaxed atmosphere,... More

Kalaonda is a rather special little place. It only has 18 rooms in total and is run by a small team of lovely people. It's a small converted farmhouse 10 mins from the sea surrounded by horticulture. The pool surround is very well kept as are the lawns and the buildings, all set in local greyish-brown stone. Apart from families... More
