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

a very small and quiet hotel. Well quiet is maybe not the right word but serene. we started our vacation there and enjoyed our stay. The pool is very well maintained although some cushions are missing. The service at dinner is excellent and helpful. I didnt like the breakfast so much. It didnt fit the rest of the standard of...

We are a family with 3 children aged 9yrs, 5yrs and 17 mths. We stayed 14 nights. This hotel is converted farm situated in the middle of agricultural land. It has been converted beautifully and is kept immaculately clean. You absolutely have to have a car to get to the beaches and we could not have managed the Sicilian roads,... More

Although the first time I would have given a better score, this time round I found that chef has changed. Last year that was the highlight of the hotel. If you want a clean, quiet and relaxed hotel this one should be on your list. On the downside, for a 4star hotel I would have expected. wifi available everywhere, and... More

Unfortunately it rained most of the time we were at the hotel so we didn't get to experience what for sure is the hotel's best feature, its huge pool area. We did get a few hours the day we arrived to enjoy the grounds with our baby son crawling around the well manicured lawn but it wasn't warm enough to... More
