Hotel Cetarium is a modern hotel located within the port, surrounded by restaurants and the bustling harbor. The hotel has a cool vibe with nice details- lighting, stone, and glass. The rooms are average sized with an updated, modern bathroom. Staff is helpful and kind. Breakfast was excellent with cappuccino or coffee made to order. Noise was somewhat of an... More

Staff were all excellent, especially those on reception. No pool, beach was a 10 minute drive which we paid €12 per day for a private shuttle to and from the beach with 2 sun beds and umbrella. We were travelling with a 9 month old and had a buggy so the the area was not ideal with a lot of... More

We had a very nice stay in the hotel - the staff was very friendly and helpful. Though the rooms are a bit too small and if you plan to stay there for a few days, get prepared to eat the same thing for breakfast. The location is very good - everything is very close, though the nearest beach is... More

Hotel is located at the small harbour. Rooms with seaview are not with seaview but with harbourview and be warned about the noise outside during the night. Courtyard rooms are more quiet. Rooms are fine,good beds,minibar,television,safe and good toilet and bath/shower,clean and good wifi in the rooms. Reception staff is very friendly. But the main issue is the breakfast :... More

Located in the old "port" , nice hotel, clean, helpful staff Rooms are nice and clean, not that hanging space tho. Breakfast is natural and you can eat whatever you like, choose a back yard room (sea view rooms are a bit noisy) . They do not have a kettle facility in the room that can make the difference. We...

This lovely hotel with attentive staff, comfortable beds and a charming feel, overlooking the harbour was a lovely introduction to Sicily. We came out of season and it was a little under- resourced - no kettle in room, bar often not staffed, but everyone was so helpful and friendly that we had a lovely time. Only other comment would be... More

Clean rooms, breakfast was ok but no more. The staff was amazing so nice and helpful. The hotel is right in the harbour so quite noisy in the evening and nighst...specially in weekends. Wonderful view from the seaview rooms and from the terrace of the hotel.

Very friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms and outstanding breakfasts. Right in the harbour close to the restaurants. You can hire a boat for as little as 50 euros for 7 hours plus petrol. The town is small beautiful. Very nice beach but 20 minutes slow walk from the hotel.

We have spent a very enjoyable week in this hotel. The rooms are great and the location is splendid in this pretty port overlooking the sea. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the place is kept spotless. Only downside is breakfast - pretty poor particularly if you are not early - when coach parties stay they are out... More
