My husband and I stayed here earlier this month and were very pleased with this hotel despite reading the negative reviews here. Admittedly the decor of the hotel is very dated however this is compensated by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff despite this being the height of Italian holiday season and incredibly busy! Our room on the fourth... More

We stayed here for 2 nights this month. The hotel looked lovely as we walked in. We went to our room and the electric went off, then came back on again. The second night we came back from the beach and there was no water. We could not have a shower, or flush the toilet. This put us off even... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as part of a cosmos tour of sicily, we couldn't of being more disappointed! The hotel itself is in a great location, across the street from a gorgeous beach and right by all the shops and bars. But this is the only good thing about the hotel.

The Hotel itself is very oldish. We stayed there for 4 nights, and we started with the wrong foot the minute we talked with the receptionist. 1 week prior of arriving I called the hotel and nicely asked if we can get a double bed and not 2 beds, I also asked if we can get a room on an... More

Stayed here as par of a tour group in early October this year. The hotel is situated right on the beach front and my room had a prime view of the beach. The only real bad point of the hotel was that the air conditioning had been switched off from 5th September (apparently this occurs every year), however we were... More

The hotel is separated from the beach by the road. You spot it immediately among the frontline buildings due to the architecture and the large name-sign on top. Parking the car is with near zero chances, but the hotel is prepared with a private car parking company who will resolve the problem for you (against charge, but it takes the... More

Reading the previous reviews I had doubts about our vacation, but after we arrived I realised that the hotel was more than ok; in my country this would be a 3 stars hotel but in a few words, the rooms were clean, the maid was everyday cleaning and supplying us all that we need in the bathroom, etc. Don't expect...
