We stayed here because we expected a four star hotel with a covered pool and roof garden to be a good place to stay with a toddler. Sadly there is no roof garden and the covered pool is a small shallow pool in the spa and rightfully children are not allowed. The restaurant on the top floor didn't even have... More

Rooms clean and spacious and staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet included and served on top floor with extensive sea views. Small indoor pool and sauna... More

On arriving we checked in and the lady at reception seemed very pushy about where we had parked our car, although it eventually turned out that we had parked "illegally" and the hotel helped us find somewhere closer and more convenient. The room we had was downstairs, very close to reception and was very small and dark. Both my wife... More

We stayed here for a week whilst visiting relations in Southern Italy. Our room was luxurious and very reasonably priced. It was spacious and clean, with very high ceilings and huge windows overlooking the brilliant blue ocean. Breakfast in the rooftop restaurant was the best. Staff were friendly and helpful and provided maps and information about the area. We found... More

The staff at this hotel were fantastic. The ladies on the reception desk were very helpful with making local recommendations. But my hat goes off to the bellboy Paolo ... he accompanied me around Syracuse in my hire car to help me get the badge and antenna replaced (which were stolen on a brief stop in the neighbouring town of...

We needed to break our journey to Marina a Di Ragusa for one night and Ortagia looked a good place. After much searching around several good options we chose The Livingston and we are glad we did. A great location overlooking the sea, parking provided outside (a real plus) and wonderful, high ceilinged rooms that are a good size and... More

Highly recommend. Our room was elegant, spacious, and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was large; it had a jacuzzi and spa shower. The water view from our room was spectacular. The staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent with the usual Sicilian spread of pastries, cheeses, fresh cold cuts, fresh fruit and juices, etc.

Loved this hotel from the moment we stepped through the door. The staff were incredibly helpful and initial parking problems were dealt with swiftly. The decor is top notch and our room was most impressive, ,spotlessly clean and with a long balcony overlooking the sea. Any road noise was obliterated by excellent double glazing and the ac worked well. Good... More

We booked a room with ocean front view and a small (standing only) balcony. The room was clean, comfortable, nicely decorated but pretty small and pricey, however, we decided the view and location was worth it. We had free parking right outside the hotel and never used the car while there since the island is very walkable. The road passed... More

Our internet worked very well, but others in our group had trouble. We had a nice balcony. There is not any exercise equipment here. The breakfast... More
