We spent a lovely week at this great hotel! From the moment of arrival we were looked after by the fantastic staff (more later) and shown our room which was very impressive......We don't seem to have had any of the problems which some other writers have had. This hotel is built on a headland facing across the bay to the... More

We stayed here at the end of April 2015. The hotel is in an excellent position and conveniently located for exploring SE Sicily. The only minor complaint is that the hot water taps to the basins and showers have to be run for close to 5 mins to get really hot water in the morning. The staff were very helpful.... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in May. It is a complex of independent small apartments, a private beach ( relatively small but cosy, with a clear sea) a pool, massage centre and jacuzzi. The view is stunning, the buildings quite new and well maintained, parking easy. The position is isolated in a natural park. Siracusa is a... More

We didnt pay for a sea view but got one anyway! if a little restricted! The jacuzzi's where right outside so we got to use them a... More

Very well located hotel with beautiful views, with great staff and personal touch in every detail. I appreciate the approach of waiters Rosario and Manu, very classy and humourous at the same time. I wish every hotel had this atmosphere.

8 of us booked this hotel to celebrate a friend's birthday. We were not disappointed at all! The location is just beautiful. The facilites are excellant. The friendly staff who greet you with big smiles right from the moment you enter the reception to the end when you sadly check-out are the hotel's biggest asset ! The receptionists, Giyan, Madhu,...

Hotel has very nice beach and the territory! Great views! Reception was working so friendly and professional that made a difference. Especially i want to mention Simona... More

My wife and I fell in love with this hotel. The reception staff were excellent from the first minute of the stay to the last. The room was excellent (233) with fabulous views across the bay to Ortegia. The beach was beautiful, the food in the restaurant was delicious and the breakfast was outstanding ! We have travelled the world... More

Great luxurious hotel. The staff were very friendly, helpful and professional. They helped us reserve restaurants, find activities to do in town and places to visit; so overall they were very eager to please. The breakfast buffet was simple but nonetheless very yummy! Id advice you to try the mini croissants filled with cream, jam or Nutella. Room was spacious,... More

Great service. Exceptional view of the ancient Greek/Roman/Sicilian. Very well executed villa style holiday resort architecture. Competitively priced but all the extras like drinking water and coffee quickly add up. Definitely worth it especially for couples, luxury beach and culture seekers. Thoroughly recommended.
