A perfect family hotel where the personnel shows great empathy for its guests. The servants in the restaurants had a personalized approach towards their guests; they were able to get good contact with all age categories, from young to geriatric people. They showed a lot of enthousiasm and brought a lot of humor in their work.

We are experienced travellers who have stayed in numerous hotels, on holidays and for business, over a period of many years. As a result we have developed a reasonable ability to be able to discriminate between good and bad. The Arathena Rocks Hotel sits at the top of the first category. The staff are the principal reason why the hotel... More

We stayed for a week in early July 2015. The hotel is about 37 miles from Catania airport and situated right on the rocks with direct access to the sea. There is also a salt water swimming pool. The snorkelling is superb - very clear water with an abundance of fish and the rocks make for caves, overhangs, pits etc.... More

We have just had two weeks here and using local transport and organised trips experienced the history, landscape and beauty of the island. The hotel is quirky, authentic, friendly and more than good for anyone wanting a great place to swim, eat, walk and explore. If you are wondering where to go in this part of Sicily then go and...

Everything good, worth the extra for sea view. Staff friendly and attentive. Breakfast and dinner had ample variety and was consistently good. Local resort round the corner had all you need. Large seawater pool with plenty of surrounding space and garden.

We spent two weeks here at the end of May. A pleasant hotel with lots of character. There are lots of tasteful artefacts from all over Sicily displayed throughout the hotel, the gardens overlooking the sea are very pretty, the pool area is clean, we never had to wait for sun loungers, the water was fairly cold and was sea...
