We only went there for 4 days and during our last day I literally cried. The staff is really really friendly and helpful. The breakfast is really unique with a fantastic view. Dinner is very classic and romantic and the whole hotel is very very clean and well kept. Last but not least the pool is just beautiful especially in... More

I would truly like to rate this property as excellent but a couple of items cause me to to stay with "very good". First and foremost was the dining room. Due to weather we had to dine indoors. For the two nights that we had dinner they had several groups which unfortunately were quite loud. Even more unfortunate, the dining... More

We stayed at Hotel Borgopantano for just 2 nights and regretted we couldn't stay longer. Although a bit difficult to find, but once we got there we just didn't want to leave. The room was very comfortable and stylish. The warm welcome we received from the staff was amazing. The grounds , garden and landscaping is beautiful, so much space... More

My review for this hotel is inevitably coloured by the absolutely horrendous weather which we encountered during our 24 hr stay, and it is a given that our enjoyment level would have been significantly greater if sunshine and warmth had allowed us to enjoy the beautiful gardens and huge pool (all gorgeous curves, with a safe bit for children and...

We stayed here 2 nights while touring around the island. It was a great oasis in the middle of farms just outside the city (10 min drive to Syracuse). The breakfast outside was a great way to start the day and the pool and staff were wonderful and helpful as we relaxed in the afternoon after touring. When we went,... More

We stayed here for two nights and were glad to move on. First appearances are deceiving. Everyone puts their best foot forward; it's the one that's hidden that should be looked at. The Borgo dazzles with its outside spaces, it's pool area, outdoor seating, even it's al fresco breakfasts. But the rooms are a disaster, certainly not worth 4 stars... More

Dear Mrs Coccinella, The distinguishing feature of our hotel is the very defined character and its original style, as fully described on all websites. You may have expected a standard hotel instead, with a classic decor, a desk full of drawers rather than what you call "a piece of wood attached to a wall." As you know tastes are subjective,...

Everything at this hotel went beyond every other hotel we stayed at in our three weeks in Sicily. The room was very modern and very clean. There were two chaise lounges in a sitting area to relax, read or watch TV. The TV swivels towards the bed or the lounge area. The bathroom was very modern and had an area... More

We had a very enjoyable stay. The staff could not be more friendly, welcoming and helpful. The grounds and pool area are immaculate and not busy when we were there. The two-level junior suite with terrace was very nice, with a comfortable bed and effective air conditioning, and pretty good WiFi everywhere included. The breakfast offering is very good indeed,...

We stayed for 1 night while taking a whistle-stop tour of Sicily. This was by far the best hotel we stayed at and we both wished we could have stayed longer. Lovely staff greeting you at the reception. A beautiful room, comfortable bed.. i could go on for hours. Pool was beautiful, large and surrounded by deck chairs and even... More
